I stayed at the Cedar River Village and found the surroundings very relaxing. My suite was very clean, modern and comfortable. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. I had lunch several times at River Bistro; very tasty and good presentation. The food at the Lakeview restaurant was very disappointing. Overall, a great place for R&R.

Everything about this place is really nice. Suite rooms, very well maintained, really great staff and the grounds are beautiful. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Down side - it is out of the way. At least 45 mins to Traverse City and other popular lake side stops. Summary - if you like golf, a great... More

Hotel staff was very friendly and the outdoor pool and hot tubs were a big hit with the kids. We will go back. Really nice room except the "owners" took all of the cabinet space in the kitchen area. There is a microwave, small fridge and a microwave but no silverware or plates/bowls. The thermostat was not accurate; we had... More

Room 213 was newly renovated and beautiful. It was a spacious corner room with huge windows and great views. The check-in and pro shop staff were helpful and friendly. The skiing was great, and the snowshoe trails were pretty. TIPS: Bring your own pillows, and there was no glassware, dishes or utensils in our kitchenette. Only styrofoam and plastic cups... More

The suite is really nice. It's very roomy, and the furniture is very nice. The fireplace in the living room had a odd odor that made us feel a little sick so we had to turn it off. The toilet didn't flush right but they came to fix it quickly. There was only one other family in the hotel, but... More

This is our first stay at Cedar River we usually stay over at Summit. Great access to ski school, rental, and shuttle service. All the staff here at Shanty Creek seem to be a little confused with all the new changes. I really don't have anything else to say but there is a 200 character requirement.

We took the family up for a weekend of skiing and to see the " Big Changes" the resort has been talking about. We loved it one of the best ski trips in years. The lodge is modern and full of life. We stayed in room 112 on the main floor perfect to get in and out. No stairs No... More

Everything was nice. Included a microwave, 2 TV's, and fridge. Sat out on our deck and read our books while watching the golfers... More

Upon arrival, we checked into the Summit Village and went to our room that had a balcony that was literally 20 feet from the parking lot. In all fairness, we booked late and there was no view description on our confirmation. However for almost $300 a night I didn't expect that. The resort was very full and nothing else available...

We've stayed at Shanty Creek-Cedar River Village 4 times and have enjoyed each stay thoroughly. We usually stay in the 3 bedroom condo located across the street from the Lodge. It's a two story spacious condo with a full kitchen and a balcony/patio. We brought friends with us and utilized the balcony and played games in the living room. We... More
