About Steve Dixon

I grew up in Green Bay Wisconsin and went to UW-Madison. I always enjoyed the climate and change of seasons in Wisconsin. Early in my career I was transferred to Michigan to work in the automotive industry. Growing up, golf was a very important part of my life and remains so today. Shortly after moving to Michigan I was able to go on golf trips in northern Michigan. Northern Michigan reminded me of Wisconsin although, truth be told, I thought it was even more beautiful. More golf courses and the sand dunes and bluffs on the northwest side of the state have no equal.

Steve Dixon purchased this condo in 2014

Why Steve Dixon chose Northern Michigan

I chose Shanty Creek and specifically Windcliff, first because of the area. It is close to Traverse City, if you need any of the things a bigger city can offer. The golf and skiing are some of the best in the state. And even if you don't ski or play golf there is an unlimited amount of outdoor activities.

What makes this condo unique

My specific unit at Windcliff has recently been remodeled with maple cabinets, new refrigerator, new bath fixtures, solid counter tops and new tile in the bath and kitchenette. The Windcliff location is perfect. It is located right across the street from the Lakeview hotel and conference center, as well as across the street from the Legend/Summit golf course pro shop.

This unit is very comfortable for a couple or young family. And best of all I am able to price it at a very affordable rate. I really want to share the beauty of northern Michigan with as many people as possible. Use the 'BOOK IT' feature and reserve your next up north vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very nice for one or 2 people I especially liked how close it was to the resort so I could walk next door to use the gym every day

Beautiful Bellaire

  • 4 of 5

Perfect weekend getaway! Beautiful view and close to everything at Shanty Creek! This trip it was just the two of us but already planning a weekend back with our daughter. Love that the shuttle is just across the street as well as the pool and other amenities. Did not use the pull out couch but owner did say he is replacing the old mattress on the bed soon. Not a big deal, king size bed, put a pillow in the "dip" and all was good (excuse to snuggle closer). Lol We would definitely come back. Thank you for letting us stay, great price for all we were able to enjoy (didn't spend much time in the condo itself, too busy)

Owner's Response: I really appreciate the feedback. I have replaced the King mattress with a memory foam mattress. Recent guests have told me they really like it. Hope to have you back soon.

Happy with my stay

  • 4 of 5

Steve was very professional, answered my phone calls and texts right away and made the process easy.

The condo was well stocked, cleaned and very nice.

My only suggestion is replacing the pull out couch, it did not smell very good.

Other than that, I would highly recommend the condo, and Steve

Perfect location and size for our fishing week.

  • 4 of 5

Nice location and layout for our week of fishing. We had a good place to park our boat and get power to it to charge our trolling motor batteries. Great location for the lakes we like to fish. We carry food with us to prepare on site and the kitchenette met our needs. The place was quite and clean. We would certainly go back in the future.
