Let's start with the fact that this is a bit dated for a resort. But if you can get past that, Shanty Creek has a lot to offer! It has restaurants, bars, shops, exercise room, spa, skiing (both downhill and XC) and a tube park. How great is that? And you can park your car all weekend and ride the... More

We booked two, two-bedroom units right after the New Year primarily driven by price and location. The price (less than 400 a week per unit) was really the driver and the skiing near by looked enjoyable. Be forewarned Northern Michigan is not Colorado for the slopes and Shanty Creek is not the Ritz. That said, the resort was more than... More

This could be a nice place. It really needs an update, especially in the common areas & hallways. The rooms are not very special. But, most of the day, (I hope) you will spend enjoying the outdoors. Visit Bellaire & Shorts brewery. Not much for shopping. Go to Alden instead. Great little town & interesting shops.

Stayed here for a girls' weekend from a groupon deal. When we tried washing our hands, it was like ice water. Surrounding area is picturesque, but not much to do without driving 40 minutes to Traverse City. In the morning, we discovered that the shower water would not heat up, either. The manager offered to send a maintenance guy, but... More

The place is a little run down, but nice. Really you're there to ski and have fun so you probably won't spend much time in your room. The area around the hotel is beautiful - that'll keep me coming back!

Not much to do in the immediate area, but there is beauty and Traverse City is only 30 miles away. The dining room and food was great! I was here for a conference and it was great for that. A fall walk in the area was very nice.

Excellent room great staff in check in and very nice area. 1st time here but will check in again when in area. I am sure it is great ski area and golfing destination but I was here on business. Great views of lake and hills and beautiful colors in the trees this time of year also.

We stayed in Crosswinds in the Summit Village. We had a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with a great view of the golf course below and the hills in the distance. There is a wonderful view of the lake as you enter the Crosswinds area. Our condo had newer furniture and carpeting. It was very clean and neat. We were... More

Shanty Creek bills itself as “world class”, however it comes up well short of that. It’s not world class, not national class and not even state class. County class, maybe. When you arrive at the Lakeview hotel, the centerpiece of the property, you face a steep flight of stairs to enter the building. This can be a real challenge is... More

Nice place, there is need for updating carpet and paint. Pools were nice. The view was amazing. Lake Bellaire was very nice, we had access to the private beach Club there which made it awesome. Played one round of golf there, pretty course, very hilly there though.
