Our Corporation has facilitated many a conference at Shanty Creek and many areas were getting "tired". We got a "parlor room" at the Summit and it has been very nicely updated. Comfy Bed, lovely 2 sink bathroom with a separate area for shower and toilet. All very well appointed. The area near the "bar area" could use more lighting as... More

We could hear the people talking in the next room and loud people partying on the balcony. We called the front desk since it was after 11 pm and they sent security to knock on doors and ask people to be quiet. The wifi in the room was not reliable. The beds were comfortable and the restaurant, lounge and pool... More

My mom and I stopped by Shanty Creek Resorts for one night on our way up to Mackinac Island, and were disappointed in the quality of this hotel. For such a steep price, I would expect an above average experience. The beds were decent, the pool was crowded, and the walls were so thin that we could hear guests in... More

I originally thought this was a terrible choice for a group's annual conference and had low expectations. While I do golf, I am not avid, and the remote location was disappointing as I'm only up for 18 holes about once a week at best. However, the hotel did a great job of coming up with things to do in addition... More

This property is a timeshare rental/sales/hotel/conference facility/ski-golf "resort" located a few miles South of the very small town of Bellaire, MI and accesses the town on a series of backroads. It is located on a hill, and is some distance from the lake (Lake Bellaire). The isolation means that it is not trivial to go off-site for meals, etc. We... More

We have been going to Shanty Creek for years and will continue to return. We have a timeshare unit which is very nice, although not high end. We find the staff to be very responsive and the resort to be a nice, relaxing location. Not a prime tourist destination so if you like to have a quieter time and more... More

I was part of a group of 15 bike riders that recently stayed at Shanty Creek Resort. We arrived on our bikes around 5:30 pm, sweaty and in need of showers before heading out for our dinner plans. When we arrived, our rooms were not ready. I asked what the check-in time was and was informed that it was 6:00... More

Checked into the timeshare last Friday. The front desk ladies were very nice and as we were early decided to have lunch at the Summit. Asmentioned before, great view of the Lake. Unit was ready by 3:30PM. Although Pinebrook is "on the property" it's 3 miles from the the clubhouse. VERY happy with the room. It is in great shape,... More

Stayed at Shanty Creek on the "room and round" package. Golfed at the Legend course. Unfortunately we had cold, rainy, weather and were unable to fully enjoy the course, however, it had beautiful views of mountains and lakes. It is a course with many hills/valleys, and homes surrounding most greens. The hotel room was newly remodeled and clean. We had... More

Had the opportunity to be at the resort for business but could not help being impressed by the natural beauty of the place and the genuine warmth of the employees. The food is very good and the wine steward knew her stuff. Rooms were comfortable but who wants that when so much walking to do. Make sure to check out... More
