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...

We attended a conference at Shanty Creek Summit Village the third week of October. 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

This place was very accommodating for my husband and myself. My only complaint would be to update tv, sound was not very good, but all in all, we will rent again. Everyone friendly, helpful. Great indoor pool.

They even didn't change the duvet, sheet and pillow cover. So dirty. And too expensive. We arrived at about 10:00 pm. When we found the dirty covers we tried to call the housekeeping. But there is nobody answer the phone, even the frontdesk. We went to front desk and only security men could help us change the covers. Never visit... More

We stayed for one night. The view was awesome. However, it was difficult to relax when we could hear every footstep and chairs moving in the room above us. This hotel needs to work on soundproofing their rooms. We could feel the balcony vibrating when we were standing on it. Would not recommend this if you value peace and quiet.

Shanty Creek resorts have a lot to offer depending upon the season. There is downhill skiing, great golf courses, a nice restaurant in the Lakeview at Summit Village, swimming pools, wonderful views and a restful atmosphere. They are making lots of updates to address the decline in condition that occurred in the past. Not a place for lots of night... More
