If you and your family are average or better skiers, do not go to Summit Village. It is just plain lame skiing. Go to Cedar Village or Schuss Mountain. Summit has a handful of very easy runs, nothing challenging at all and awful service in the dining lodge. Our food took an hour after the kitchen lost our ticket. Avoid... More

We spent a wonderful blustery, cold Valentines Day at this resort. Despite the cold, the staff was very helpful, and the accommodations were top notch, Shuttle services to various attractions around the resort were plentiful, and timely, making it very easy to get around. We had dinner at the pub at Schuss Mtn., all we can say is it was... More

Gail force winds and way below zero temps on Presidents' Day weekend. We grabbed another layer and headed out to ski! No lines at the lifts....warming hut was convenient and staff was amazing and friendly! Ski rental, lift operators and tubing park staff was great. Kudos to the funny guy at Schuss rental wearing the "Steve" name tag. Thanks to... More

Shanty Creek Resorts is a great place to ski for the family - especially for families with various skiing abilities. Powder was great. The new tubing area was very fun - great proximity to our hotel room. Every employee we met was engaging and very helpful. The new ski rental setup at Cedar River is easy and again, there are...

We spend family vacations here in the summer and the winter! Skiing and Golf are first class! We love taking day trips to Torch Lake and Traverse City, but wouldn't want to be anywhere else! The local town of Bellaire has great restaurants and of course Short"s Brewery! We recommend Shanty to anyone.

We stayed the weekend at Shanty Creek. I had both experienced skiers and people that haven't skied before with us. Everyone had an amazing time. The resort was very nice. The food was amazing. It is obvious they have a wonderful chef. Everyone loved the tubbing hill with the magic carpet to pull you back up the hill. We finished... More

It started off with terrible signage coming in at night, our reservation stated cedar village but signage took us to summit village. Sign that then directed us to cedar said 1.3 miles, well it is closer to 5 miles. When we went into cedar village the host asked if she could help us and I said yes, we are here... More

I stayed two nights at Shanty Creek for a business meeting. It is about 50 minutes from the Traverse City airport and quite remote. Some folks from our party wanted to ski because the lift tickets were only $25, but they didn't bring the right clothes. Apparently everyone goes skiing at the other Shanty Creek resort because there are more... More

I've been coming up here for many years. It's finally starting to get busy. It' s nice to see the resort has made some changes for the better. But skiing for a family of three shouldn't cost $180 (one day). The tubing park used to be more fun before this year's new rules and restrictions. Lighten up Shanty Creek!

We were pleasantly surprised to find the Lakeview Hotel updated (it had been 10 years since our last visit there). The pool and hot tub area were fine. Breakfast buffets (Sat/Sun) were very good; with an omelet station. We had a very good dinner at our Instructional dinner on Saturday night. Would like to see some sort of dance club/more... More
