Went here in the 3rd week of August 2013 with my GF. Beautiful, high-ceilinged central lodge/restaurant overlooking the then-barren slopes and Lake Bellaire, indoor and outdoor pools and an in-hotel spa. The lodge has a funky architectural layout with rooms on upper and lower levels (get the upper, lakeside if you can). It's easy to get lost trying to find... More

We primarily snowboarded at Schuss although the lodge is right on Summit because Summit is really small and the beginner hill leaves a lot to be desired (we brought a first-timer with us). As for the lodge/hotel; nicely maintained with exposed timbers and giant fireplaces in dining room, pool area and some common areas. Comfy beds and everything seemed pretty... More

I hadn't been to Shanty Creek in years. Its been remodeled and updated but still has drafty windows, and some outdated things. There seems to be a lot of wasted space. Tons of conference and ballrooms but no cafeteria, a dinky arcade with like 4 games, etc. Seems they could utilize much more of the space. Still feels a little... More

A group stay here for a ski weekend. The rooms were very nice and quiet, and the service was also well done. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet, and omelet station which were enjoyed by all. It was a bit drafty sitting by the big windows overlooking the slopes and Lake Bellaire. The hot tub was too small and crowded for... More

We had the condo for a week in January. The property was older, but in very good repair and very clean (oven was a bit dirty, but whose isn't?) All the little things were included example: salt and pepper shakers, well stocked dishes, pots and pans, dishwasher detergent. The bath was well stocked with plenty of towels for 2 people... More

Stayed in the chalet style rooms for 3 nights and 4 days of golf in the summer of 2013. It is a great resort and very well priced with spectacular views. The Legend is one of the nicest courses I have ever played. Staff were friendly in the hotel portion of the resort. We went there for drinks and food... More

Shanty Creek has it all skiing, golfing and a great staff. We have stayed many times at the resort and have experienced all seasons and it is always enjoyable. We love this resort and the Bellaire / Torch Lake area. The golf and skiing are excellent along with the restaurants and lounges at the resort and in the surrounding area.... More

Spent a weekend at Shanty Creek Resort for a conference. Our room (339) was spacious and included a fridge. The only concern I had with the room was the bathtub. It was slippery and needed some kind of mat to ensure better balance and safety. The balcony overlooked Lake Bellaire and a vast expanse of woodlands. The view was breathtaking.... More

The place is dated and the hallway to the rooms are eerie and look like a movie set for "The Shining" I kept looking for the kid on the big wheel to come zipping down the hallway. The room smelled like my brothers frat house and I went to the sliding door to get fresh air (there is no lock)... More
