Stayed here for a conference. The rooms are huge, and the view from the balcony is great. Didn't have a chance to golf, but the courses look fantastic. Definitely think we will come back here with the kids. The only bad part was that our room was not cleaned very well after the first night.

Terrible service. When you stay in the "Best" suite and pay the extra for it you expect service to match. Check-in was easy and fun with a great front desk crew. (No luggage assistance and almost every room had a minimum of eight stairs up or down). The room was lovely. Just what I was expecting from all of the... More

We were visiting friends in a nearby town last week right after a large storm passed through the area. Power and water were knocked out for thousands of people. We called Shanty Creek at the recommendation of our friends who spend the summer on Torch Lake. While we could only stay for 2 nights due to all the utility workers... More

I love that Shanty Creek has something for everyone in their 3 villages and four seasons of fun. My kids love to go tubing and skiing, my husband loves the new Foot Golf and I will be glad to hide at the Spa any day!

We spent a weekend at the Summit Village Resort. It was the first visit for us, and I was so impressed with the facility, the room and the entertainment. Friday night we ate at the resort restaurant, it was very classy with very high end service staff. Best of all the general prices were reasonable considering the upscale quality of... More

This was our first time visiting Shanty Creek Resort. We had a fantastic time and plan to go back. Our room was the best room I think we have ever stayed in. The room was very clean and large in size. The full kitchen was great and made meals (or snacking) so convenient. Our room had a view of the... More

I'd like to have the architect that designed these stay here for a while. What a mish-mash. The lobby is kind of at "street level" at the front but is actually the 3rd story. The lobby is accessed via stairs or a small elevator to the left of the building. If you are unable to do stairs, be sure you... More

Recently at Shanty Creek for a conference. I stayed in the main building. I did not have the view or vaulted ceilings like in the profile picture. The hotel room was very average. The view from the lake side of the hotel is mesmerizing, so if you can, get a room on that side. It was nice that the rooms... More

My wife attended a conference at Shanty Creek, I got to tag along. Great Golf, the surrounding area is beautiful, boating, fishing, lots of restaurants. Our room at the resort was fantastic with a balcony that over looked the pool and valley below. A few more outlets would be nice. The staff, everyone, was very helpful and courteous. I had... More

We stayed at a summit village condominium. While the staff was very nice, the room left much to be desired. It was very musty smelling and outdated. We planned to eat in, but found no silverware. We thought renting a condo for the night would be quieter because we were traveling with a toddler. But shortly after we arrived, a... More
