Why Colleen and Mike chose Northern Michigan

This beautiful chalet offers plenty of room for large groups or families to spread out without feeling cramped. 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. If heading to the Schuss Mountain, the resort offers complimentary shuttle bus service throughout the resort. The property is a ten minute car ride to Torch Lake "one of the most beautiful lakes in the U.S."

What makes this chalet unique

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!

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.

Wonderful home. Quiet peaceful setting. Enjoyed by all.

  • 5 of 5

The Listing description was completely accurate regarding the location and amenities. We were a group of 12 and the house was perfect for our big group. We found the home clean and well maintained. The owners were great to work with. I will certainly return and recommend this to our friends and family. We really enjoyed the ping pong table, the deck and the fire pit. Awesome owners and awesome property.

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!

The Schuss Mountain and Shanty Creek Resort offers something for everyone - with its two incredible ski areas with free shuttle service, miles of cross country skiing trails, sledding, tubing and four nationally recognized golf courses - including The Legend and Cedar River - there is plenty to do. As our guests you will have access to two resort pools (indoor and outdoor), tennis, basketball courts, golf range and the Private Beach Club on Lake Bellaire - available only to Summit Village homeowners and guests. We are just a five minute stroll to the Lakeview Hotel which offers a fitness center, full service spa and sauna - not to mention the highly acclaimed Lakeview Restaurant.

We are a five minute drive to downtown Bellaire which includes Short's Brewery, a nationally recognized microbrewery. We are 30 minutes from Gaylord and Traverse City - both offering many challenging and enjoyable golf courses including The Bear at the Grand Traverse Resort. Or take a drive up the peninsula in Traverse City and sample some of the local wineries or attend the Cherry Festival.

This lovely Summit Village home is located directly on the Summit Golf Course. Sit on the large back deck and sip your favorite beverage as you take in the beautiful panoramic views (and the occasional golfer). Enjoy your evenings sharing stories around the fire pit.
