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

Lakeview Hotel at Shanty Creek is a dated but cozy resort hotel located atop a large hill overlooking Lake Bellaire. There are a few small shops next to the enormous hotel. Therefore, it is called Summit Village. Actually it is not a village, but rather a hotel complex. The name 'Summit Village' must of been some kind of marketing ploy.... More

Do not go to the "spa". It is a creepy ceiling-less room with gross fake ivy draped across it. I was six minutes late for my massage, facial and hot oil scalp treatment and got a ride voicemail from the therapist. I couldn't believe how the tone was set. I go in and felt rushed. The therapist didn't even knock... More

Came here for a work conference in October - flying in to Traverse City was amazing this time of the year. The trees were turning and was absolutely stunning coming in over the blue water on the lake. The resort is about an hour drive from the airport - and there was construction which added a bit more time to... More

My husband and I recently spent a weekend at Shanty for my birthday. We had a nice room overlooking Lake Bellaire with a balcony. The colors were still nice, the lake was beautiful, and at night we could see the lights from Traverse City. The rooms were clean and quiet. The staff was very friendly. We took advantage of the...

The resort is not plush by any means, but we found the rooms and common areas to be clean and reasonablhy well maintained. We stayed in a standard guest room with a small balcony facing the front of the building. The autumn colors were fabulous and... More

The grounds of Shanty Creek Resort are beautifully well-kept and the views from The Lakeview Hotel are stunning, but that's the end of the compliments for this property. If you are looking for a four-star experience, this is not the place. The walls of our room were way too thin -- we could hear every word of our neighbor's conversations.... More
