The time share condo was in need of updating. The loft bedroom with a bath was always hot because the air unit didn't even have a vent. Also there was a huge sky light that let the sun in before 5 am. That does say vacation to me!

My fiance and I stayed at Shanty Creek when we went for a color tour romantic get-a-way. We paid top dollar for our room but had a fabulous view of the lake and a beautiful room. The staff was friendly and we would like to come back again if it were not so pricey. I would recommend this for a... More

The room they put us in had a horrible musty smell. Housekeeping tried to get the smell out without any success and informed the manager. The manager told us they only had one room available to move us to which was a room for hanidicap persons. Since we really did not have a choice in the matter we moved to... More

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
