About Madhu Scherba

My husband and I love to travel internationally and try to bring all the exotic flavors to this vacation home. Our goal is to make sure all of our guests have a memorable time staying here.

Madhu Scherba purchased this house in 2013

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very private setting, yet close to many activities. Our family of six really enjoyed our stay in this very clean, and roomy home. We were impressed with all the attention to details, and all the extra comforts provided—especially in the family room and kitchen. The décor throughout this spacious home was very cozy, and we loved all the windows that let in views of nature in every room. It truly felt like an escape. Even though the weather was very cool, we had a very nice time touring the area—including Mission Point, Traverse City and Alden. To my son’s delight, we even discovered a new mountain bike trail nearby in Alden. When we returned from either sightseeing or swimming at Schuss Mountains heated pools, we relaxed, grilled, read, watched movies and even enjoyed an intense game of Monopoly! The price was right and we highly recommend staying here!

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We went up for the Short's Anniversary party, as we do every year, and this home was perfect for 5 people. It was well maintained, and the beds were all really comfortable. It is located in a nice, quiet area, but is still close to everything Bellaire has to offer, and the drive into Traverse City was beautiful. I highly recommend this home, and will be renting it again in the future.

Great ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

We booked for a weekend of skiing fun and were very happy with our choice of place to stay. Madhu was a fabulous host even made arrangements to have something we forgot at the cottage sent back to me. Thank you for a wonderful time and I look forward to staying there again.

The cottage is very clean and spacious. There were seven of us 4 adults and 3 kids and had no issue with space. Garage is a nice feature in winter to keep car indoor. Cottage slightly difficult to find in dark suggest reflector numbers at entrance of property.

Wonderful Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend!

There were six adults and two small children for two nights, and the cabin had plenty of space for us all - we joked that we can add several more grandkids and still sleep comfortably :)

The cabin was beautiful and very clean. Having a garage was also convenient for storing our ski equipment, and there was plenty of space for multiple cars in the driveway. Access to the indoor pool at the hotel was a HUGE plus, we decided to walk there on Saturday morning - it was just over a mile away.

The downstairs (master) bedroom was very large, and the den off the back of the bedroom was very cozy and inviting.

The owner was also very responsive when we were unable to work the dishwasher - turned out to be "user error", but she was more than happy to walk us through it and send maintenance, if necessary.

There was a gas grill out on the deck, and great patio furniture to enjoy the views.

We would love to return next year!!

The house was amazing and relatively close to shops and slopes. The only negative was the driveway only being plowed once in 4 days of constant snow, plus make sure you have good tires and 4wd to get out of the subdivision.

Still, I highly recommend staying in what feels to be a home away from home.

Great stay in Shanty Creek!

  • 4 of 5

The home was exactly as pictured! Nestled in the woods with views of nature. The rooms were cozy and inviting, beds were comfy, house was clean and well maintained. Our family enjoyed the den off the master bedroom. We also went to the hotel each day and let the grandchildren swim in the pool while we sat in the hot tub. We had a few sunny fall days so we did some exploring in nearby Bellaire, bought groceries, and ate at Subway.

Only suggestion is that there is a need for a new coffee pot! It takes way too long to brew-

Madhu was great to work with :-)

Would highly recommend a stay at Shanty Creek!
