About Joyce Fisher

Our family has been coming to Schuss Mountain for almost 40 years. We have many changes throughout the years. It is wonderful place to unwind, relax and enjoy the beauty of northern Michigan. The slopes are well groomed and have something for everyone. Some of the boarders enjoy the extreme hill while others enjoy the easy quiet slopes. It's a great place for family time.

Why Joyce Fisher chose Mancelona

We are located at the foot of the blue quad chairlift. It is a one minute walk to the Main lodge where you will find the pool, hot tub and sauna. Ivan's Pub and Restaurant is next to the pool. On weekends there is usually live entertainment. You will have access to all three resorts that are part of the Shanty Creek Resort. Cedar River where there is tubing, and Shanty Creek with a dining room and lounge and another swimming pool area. You can ride the free shuttle bus to each of these areas.

Is what it is

  • 3 of 5

Clean and comfortable. Heater works. Just understand it’s dated and is essentially a motel room. 50 yard walk (down a set of stairs) to the blue lift. It is convenient to Ivan’s Cafe which is good since you won’t be able to prepare meals in the room aside from yummy hot pockets. If you’re ok with not walking out to ski, the same price will get you a nicer two room condo with kitchen (as evidenced by the other family we were with). We personally really appreciated the ski in/out so would stay here again as long as we had somewhere else to relax for the evening.

Owner's Response: Brian, Thank you for the review. We really like the ski in and ski out too. There is comfortable living room style furniture in the main lodge by the pool with a large screen TV for your use. Our family brings a crockpot and it's so easy to come off the slopes anytime and get soup. In the room is a microwave, small apartment size frig and coffee pot. We supply coffee and tea. Happy New Years and we appreciate your comments. Joyce

Owner's Response: So pleased that you had a great family ski/boarding vacation. The rental is at a ski in and ski out location so that eliminates driving to the slopes. Ivan's restaurant is a short 2 minute walk and on winter weekends there is a bonfire out front on slope side. The pool, sauna and hot tub are only a one minute walk. We have always enjoyed our time with family at Schuss Mountain too. Thank you for the review and hope to see you again next winter. Joyce

Decent stay

  • 2 of 5

This is an older place, but very clean. The room decor is very 80's, but in good condition. There is a TV with movies. There are board and card games in the room. You can hear the people on the other side talking, laughing, lie! The A.C. did not work the first night, but did the second night. The hot water is very hot, that was awesome! Beds could use some foam or something. There is a fridge and coffee maker. For what I paid this place is great! Would stay again.
