Why Colleen and Mike chose Northern Michigan

We have vacationed in several areas across Northern Michigan, but no other resort offered the four season amenities that Shanty Creek had to offer. We are an active family and this Resort has something for everyone. Once we saw the private Beach Club on Lake Bellaire, we were hooked!

This beautiful chalet offers plenty of room for our large family to spread out and the location directly on the Summit Golf Course with those beautiful views is simply incredible. We love to cross country ski and with miles of cross country ski trails right out our back door we couldn't pass it up.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is really lovely and fully equipped. We have never rented a home where there was not something that we could have used that was not supplied. This kitchen has everything you would need. The decor is lovely. The sleeping arrangements were perfect for us. Upper level has the bedrooms we needed, and the lower level was perfect for the "boys." Our room on the main floor had a very comfortable king bed and a separate dressing area and bath. This home is truly a wonderful place to stay. Oh, and the gas grill makes cooking easy. As the other reviews indicate, three families would be very comfortable, as was our family of three generations.

Fantastic rental. For work, I'm normally on the road staying at hotels. I generally don't rent houses as you never know what you will get and prefer the aspects of hotel. But this house was perfect, a 5 star hotel. The entire group that stayed with us was extremely impressed. Very clean and extremely relaxing.

Phenomenal home and vacation property!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd visit to the Shanty Creek vacation home. As in previous visits we arrived to a very crisp and clean home. After stowing away groceries and clothing, we took some relaxing time out on the spacious and comfortable deck which overlooks several holes on the golf course. When not playing golf we enjoyed watching it on a large flat screen tv in the living/great room. Plenty of space to stretch out and relax! Preparation of meals was effortlessly accomplished in the well equipped kitchen and easily served out to a large dining room table. The outdoor gas grill is a nice tool as well. Looking forward to a return trip next season!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely happy with the entire place, inside and out. We are used to staying in Marriott Resorts so we are vacation snobs, and this did not disappoint us. Everything was perfect, no issues or regrets at all. And the privileges with the private beach and hotel pool were a huge bonus, for the times we were looking to fill a little time.

Beautiful, spacious home. I would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

The home was spacious, beautiful, recently updated and well supplied, as stated in the description. Being centrally located we were able to take day trips to places like Mackinac Island, Traverse city and we canoed a local river. The fully equipped kitchen allowed us to enjoy many meals together as a family. The outdoor space was also wonderful! We enjoyed campfires at night and the patio furniture gave us a place to relax and enjoy the view. The hotel pool was wonderful with the most spectacular view! Overall our vacation was great and this house was a large part of it's success! Colleen was easy to work with, I would rent this house again. I also would recommend this home to anyone traveling to the area, it's a great place!

Beautiful Golf home property

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home to do a fall getaway with some friends and enjoy the colors. We own a condo at Shanty but needed more room for other couples. This home is emmensely clean and confortable with an open floor plan. The owners were wonderful to work with and provided all the needs. This is a great place for families, several couples and at any time of the year to enjoy the seasons! Location is convenient for all ammenities and close to other major cities in the north. Would definately use again!

A great vacation! My wife and I with 4 kids ages 21, 19, 17, and 15 all loved it. The home was beautiful and well kept. Quiet surroundings with beautiful views. Shanty is a great family resort. The owner is very responsive...though we had no problems whatsoever. Would definitely go back in the future.
