My first exposure via the website was okay. The website is nice but it fails to describe what each room entails, which would be helpful in booking rooms. Then, I went through the entire booking process and when I pressed confirm/buy, it said there was an error and told me to call the resort. So this option was totally worthless... More

We stayed at the Summit Lodge for a golf weekend. The location was excellent, since it was central to the various courses on the Shanty Creek property. Since the lodge building is obviously not new, I expected the rooms to be a bit dated. But I was pleasantly surprised to find they were renovated and very comfortable. The hotel photos... More

My husband and I stayed 1 night in March '08. It was late in the ski season so not many people were there. We were going up for a romatic weekend so when we saw that the parking lot was nearly empty we were happy. Upon arrival check in was very easy. The room looked great as it had been... More

Schuss Village is very old and dirty. It needs to be remodled (or like one of the employees told me, it needs to be torn down and rebuilt). Thank goodness we only stayed one night. Upon check in I asked and recieved an upgraded room. I'm not even curious what our original room would have been like. The carpet was... More

We stayed at the Cedar River resort for an anniversary trip and really enjoyed it there. The rooms were very clean and they were also very large. We visited during off season so there was not a lot to do in the surrounding areas nor were there very many other guests. Most of the shops in the downtown area were... More

Even though we don't golf, my family had a great time at Shanty Creek. We stayed in the Summitt portion. It had medium sized outdoor and indoor pools. The outdoor heated pool is in the back beneath the dining area and overlooking the lake below. It was never crowded. Stayed in the condo's. Rooms were a little dated, but not... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Shanty Creek. It was just my husband and I, and we stayed in the Cedar Creek hotel part. You can ski in and out from here, and also they have a free shuttle that will take you over to the other resorts--Summitt and Schuss. Schuss has a fun nightspot/restaurant called... More

I stayed here years ago and found it very dated and humdrum. The rooms were clearly not taken care of. I had heard the Resort was updating and wanted to see myself all the changes. When we arrived I was in awe of the way the main lobby changed. You could actually see the beautiful view on the lakes and... More

Shanty Creek is an area with a number of associated resorts in near the town of Bellaire. We own a timeshare at the Legend Cottages (off of the first tee of the Legend's golf course). There are a number of other condominiums and hotels on the property. This is an amazing area, very similar to Smokey Mountains in North Carolina.... More
