Northern Michigan Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 5-6

This second floor, end unit condo is in the perfect location. Walk out the door to the Schuss slopes or the golf course at Schuss. This 600 sq. ft. condo will sleep you and the kids or two to three couples who don't mind sharing the living space. The condo has a small fridge and two burner stove, microwave and dishwasher in the kitchen area and everything you need for a week or weekend of golfing or skiing. Shanty Creek pools and Ivan's restaurant are just a short walk across the parking lot. You will be in the center of all the activity, yet you can close your door and have a quiet evening.

The deck gives you a wonderful view and you can quickly check to see what is happening at Schuss!

If you plan to use the fireplace you should bring your own firestarter and artificial logs. The owner does not provide firewood and association rules prohibit guests from bringing in wood.

Shanty Creek Skiing and Winter activities: Schuss Mountain has long defined skiing in Michigan. So it’s no surprise Shanty Creek was rated 'Best Downhill Terrain in the Midwest' by’s visitors. With 53 runs on its two mountains and featuring 4 terrain parks, a 300' half pipe, more than 175' of snow, and a 450' vertical drop, Shanty Creek is where terrain meets tradition.This is an absolute wonderful winter wonderland.

Golf and Summer: Shanty Creek resort offers 72 holes on four championship golf courses, each combining challenging play with Up North natural beauty.

The courses offer tight fairways, formidable doglegs, breathtaking hazards, and varying elevations, Shanty Creek’s golf courses put golfers in an enviable position—trying to read and play those challenging greens amid the stunning views. Golf Tom Weiskopf designed Cedar River Course, Arnold Palmers, The Legend, the Schuss Mountain course - a favorite among locals who annually name it one of the top public courses in Michigan and Shanty Creeks original course - the Summit.

What else to do??!!: If you find time to go exploring, you are only 30-40 minutes from Charlevoix, Petoskey and Traverse City. Shop, go to the casinos, fish, boat on beautiful Torch Lake, sail in the Bay, go to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Bellaire has wonderful restaurants, quaint shopping and you'll find a grocery store and some speciality food shops to stock up your condo and cook a great meal. Swim, boat, use the pools and hot tubs, sightsee - you'll run out of time before you run out of things to do.

Great rate, close to the action.

Jane was very helpful on the phone setting up for a last minute weekend get-away. The condo was a little tight for the six of us, but worked out very well. We were across the street from the pool and maybe 500ft from the pink chair lift. Not too much for a 7 and 6 year old to walk in ski boots. We will likely look to stay here again.

perfect location

  • 4 of 5

the listing was very accurate regarding its layout and location , however we did find it a bit on the small side for 6 of us. also if you are going to try to cook the pans need to be small due to the stove size, I differently would go back and stay at this location again as long as i was in a smaller group

Clean space in good location

  • 4 of 5

Clean space in good location. A little dated with an odd layout but overall a decent value. We'd stay there again. Would be real nice if they cleared out the trees for a better view of 1st hole.

Schuss condo-good value

  • 4 of 5

Condo was a very good value for the money. A tad dated but clean and organized. Jane was great to work with. Surprised at the great location literally over-looking the first tee. My family heckled me from the balcony when I teed off with my buds.

Very convenient location with basic amenities

  • 4 of 5

4 stars because the location was so close to Ivan's and the pink lift. The con being so much traffic noise in the evening because of this. It was a little cramped with 2 adults and 2 young boys. We had crazy cold weather and stayed in a little more than we usually do. I would say this condo is more appropriate for the very active and not cozy romantic weekend away.
