We stayed in Schuss Village over the 4th of July weekend and were having a heck of a time finding a reasonably priced option anywhere near Kalkaska because of the holiday. Schuss is about 20 minutes north of Kalkaska and part of Shanty Creek Resorts. We were unfamiliar with Shanty Creek, but based on the reviews decided it was worth... More

Great condo in Schuss Mountain resort. A little remote, but still nice. Very quiet and still off season so there isn't a whole lot to do right now. But Short's Brewery is close by, so that's something. Be sure to plan a day trip to Traverse City, definitely worth a visit.

Great rooms, close to everything, great price, I would definitely take my family there again, and I recommed it to others. The people at the front desk seemed a little impatient and not very welcoming but everything else was wonderful.

Disappointing. Booked what we thought was a double room from the website. Requested a quiet, low traffic room. Got a small single bed dungeon. A tiny window over-looked the pool full of screaming people which was next to a set of stairs. We woke up at 7 am to loud conversations and walkie talkies and realized our room was also... More

Booked a double room and asked for it in a quiet area. I got a single bed above the pool full of screaming kids. I knew the place was Shanty's budget lodging but it was SAD! Totally outdated from the last century. Felt grimy and had a weird smell. The comforter had a slight smell of pee and was the... More

I love skiing at Schuss, and come here every year it is great place to ski. We often tailgate which can be lots of fun with a little planning. However, I'm continually astounded at the gross lack of facilities for day skiers. No functional base-lodge – They have made some changes, the rental building is now a place to store... More

The condo in Bergrand in Schuss Village was very fun down and beaten up. There were scratches all over the walls and cabinets, and the kitchen was absolutely disgusting. There was no humidifier, bad ventilation, and there were many spiders. Do not use the restroom in your condo, or the condo will stink of it for the rest of your... More

We rented a room at the lodge at Schuss mountain for a summertime event. We needed to drive up to the summit to check in because the lobby where we stayed was closed. We could not find any ice because it said was available in the lobby which was closed. The room was very dark only two lights. There was... More

We stayed in the Legend Cottage Inn at this place. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I would recommend this place to my family. I paid $105 per night tax included which I thought was good and fair. We ate at the Pelican Sports Bar down the street and the food was excellent. The STAFF there were great and I... More

If you want to ski in and ski out, you will stay at the Main Lodge at Schuss Village. We were told by the people on the phone that the other hotel was nicer but we wanted ski in and ski out. The better hotel is Shanty Creek BUT you have to drive 3 miles to ski at the big... More
