Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12-14 Person Walkout Basement with Game Room

Are you looking for a relaxing getaway in the fresh outdoors? Hawk's Eye Golf Resort and Shanty Creek may just be your solution. Located in Northern Michigan, this golf/ski resort area is absolutely beautiful year round. Whether your party consists of two adults or a of up to 16, our 'home away' will provide you with all the amenities you need to have a great vacation.

Our four-bedroom home is nestled on the sixth green of the Hawk's Eye Golf Course which is ranked the fourth greatest golf course in Michigan. A golf lovers dream. Schuss Mountain, which is located right down the street has given Shanty Creek its reputation as the 'Best Downhill Terrain in the Midwest.'

You'll enjoy quality time spent with family & friends while staying in this luxurious log home. This home has all the amenities you're used to and more.

As you walk in the front door enjoy the beautiful gardens. You will notice the gorgeous view of the heart shaped green with the beautiful pond. The great room with its 2-story stone fireplace is where you can relax & enjoy conversation with others, or watch a movie on the new 50' high-def TV.

The spacious kitchen makes fixing a family meal a breeze, and the dining room is perfect for meals, or playing cards or games with friends. The lower level Game Room has ping-pong, pool table, Foosball table, dart board and pinball machine! You'll find plenty of board games, puzzles and more here. An additional bathroom with shower serves this area as well as another sleeping area located on this level.

The outdoors awaits you, so be sure to take time to relax on one of the two decks overlooking the golf course. Enjoy the beauty of gorgeous northern Michigan summer days. The club house heated pool at Hawks Eye is just a short walk up the street and is available to all guests as well as the workout room.

In winter, the sledding hill is right outside the back door. The tubing hill is a short drive away over to Cedar River as well as the incredible skiing at both Schuss Mountain and Shanty Creek Resort. Definitely a Winter-Summer Wonderland!

Why Lesley Misuraca Owner/Property Manager chose Northern Michigan

There is something Magical about this Hawks Eye Property, From the moment you walk in you can feel how special it is. The architect who built this home has made it a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. With enormous detail to light and space it has an open airy, welcoming feel. Every corner is unique.

I take great pride in maintaining the beauty of his design while adding my own personal touches. Enjoying interior design myself, I hope you will enjoy my artistic flare. It is important to me that you feel like you have arrived for something special. This is your time away with family and friends and I want you to enjoy the comforts and luxury of my Resort Home.

What makes this house unique

There are so many unique benefits to this home. For starters the comfortable Michigan Adirondack chairs overlook my garden that I've filled with flowers from family members who have passed. They provide a new life every time they bloom.

The diamond windows and sky lighting bring this house to life. Hardwood floors of mahogany and teak with teak wood bathrooms & cabinets give it a modern rustic feel.

The Hawks Eye Golf Course is AMAZING!!!! My home happens to be on the heart shaped green with very large and challenging sand traps. It is so much fun to watch the golfers manage their way out while enjoying the two decks.

The slate floor walk-out basement that I have made into a game room is so much fun for everyone. Being right off the fire pit area makes it a great gathering spot.

Best golf experience yet

  • 5 of 5

The cabin exceeded every expectation. Clean and comfortable, with a beautiful view off the back porch. I would highly recommend this cabin for golfers as opposed to staying in the resort rooms. I will stay here again in the future.

Real comfortable setting

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time relaxing and enjoying the amenities at the house. Great location near beaches, resorts, and of course golf out the back door. Setup upstairs is a little odd with loft sharing bathroom with master bedroom with no door, but everything else made up for it.

Great location for all our sight seeing.

  • 3 of 5

We did not realize how awkward the second floor was laid out. Little privacy. What a difference another door to the bathroom would have made. Having to reset the hot water heater everyday was a nuisance. Enjoyed the golf course view and the large deck, the fire pit was a plus. The grandsons enjoyed the lower level. Enjoyed Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City, Torch Lake, Charlevoix, & Mackinac Island.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry for your dissatisfaction. Many people really enjoy the open layout of the second floor. It is listed as a loft area so with that being said, most expect an open area. Unfortunately, the inconvenience with the hot water heater was out of my control. As you know I called for service immediately however they couldn't get the necessary part during your stay. I'm sorry you had to hit the reset button everyday however I'm glad you were able to have hot water.

Great Golf Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great property for a summer golf trip. There are 6 courses within 5 minutes of the property, and one of them is literally in your back yard. The house is wonderful as well. It's extremely well kept and clean, has TONS of beds for a larger group, is equipped with a game room in the basement (pool table, ping pong table, ping ball machine, has a great outdoor deck looking over the 6th green of Hawkseye, and even has a great fire pit for even bonfires. We couldn't have been happier with our stay, and we look forward to coming back in the future!

For starters this was not our first stay at your home but we were so happy to return. Your home is absolutely beautiful and conveniently located to all golf courses lakes and the charming downtown Bellaire. Thank you for your recommendations too. The cherry almond muffins at the lunchbox were delicious and the soft parade at short Brewery is now one of our favourites. Thank you again for allowing us to stay in your home. We certainly hope to return again one day
