Wonderful experience

After reading some of these reviews, I had no idea what to expect. I will start by saying that I am super picky about hotels. But I was absolutely so impressed with the entire Shanty Creek experience.
We had the king parlor room. The first thing I noticed was the view. Beautiful view of the lake, and trees for miles.
The room was a good size. King bed, little kitchen, roomy bathroom. It was all very clean and well-maintained. The pillows were soft and fluffy, and the bed was comfortable.
We had no issues with noise from other guests, and couldn't hear people in the hall or the adjoining rooms.
The resort is absolutely massive, and there's plenty of natural beauty. Made for some enjoyable evening walks.
We did not visit the pool, but it looked clean. Grounds are also maintained well.
We ate at the Lakeview restaurant. While the menu has few choices, the food was delicious. The breakfast bar and omelet bar in the morning were also very tasty. Staff was friendly and attentive and helpful.
The golf courses are very nice, and also staffed with kind and knowledgeable people.
There were a few cosmetic things like some chipping and scuffs in the room, but they are so minor that it wasn't even noticeable.
Balcony was sturdy, and made for some great sunset watching.
I will definitely recommend this resort to people, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

Great Northern MI get-away. Golf courses, pools, sunsets, lakes, downtown Bellaire, The Shanty area and condo we stay at are superb. I recommend you bring friends or family to S.C.

Great Family Resort

This was our 2nd trip to Shanty Creek. On this trip, we stayed in one of the ski-in/out cabins & it was amazing. I would definitely recommend staying in one of those cabins if you're able to. They had plenty of room for our family of 5. Ski school was great as well - we had private lessons for both myself & my youngest (7). Both instructors were fabulous. You do have to book early for these cabins, though.

Great ski weekend

From the front desk to the ski rental workers to the Lakeview restaurant staff, everyone at Shanty Creek Resorts made us feel welcomed and valued. Even with Covid restrictions in place, the service, food and ski lines were good.Definitely will be back next year!

Stayed at the Lakeview Hotel while in Bellaire for work. This was my 2nd stay with them and would definitely look again! Beautiful property, friendly, helpful staff, great food, and nice clean rooms!

For paying over $200 for a one night stay, I was very disappointed in what I found. I had to climb steps to get to check in. When I went to the room, it was small. It did not have any hangars to hang my wet coats up on. There were not enough towels and wash cloths for my party of three. The room’s screen patio door was very hard to open. The tv screen was very small. It was very hard to find an outlet to plug into. Most were behind something. The room was farther than any other room from the main area or lobby. We were given a shower only (barely big enough for one person) and not a tub and shower. I found out that you have to request a room with a tub and shower if you want it. The room did not even have a table and chairs to eat at. Our last stay at another hotel had 2 queen beds, a hideabed sofa, table and 2 chairs, lake view with patio and chairs, 55inch screen tv hanging on the wall not in a cabinet, beautiful pictures and on the top floor near the elevator like I always request. All of this for less than $100 per night I paid.

2020 Group Vacation
Sep 2020
We had a week getaway with a total of 6 couples. Everyone had a great time there is so much to do at the resorts between playing golf, pickelball, shuffle board, swimming, relaxing in the spa or just sitting around the fire pits. Then the area has lot to see and do between walking, sand dunes, lakes, kayaking, shopping we all were very busy. The food at the resorts is exceptional and the employees are very attentive, polite and helpful. I highly recommend these resorts to anyone visiting this area. You will love and enjoy the time that you spend here.

Very nice place! Beautiful views and great atmosphere. We stayed in August of 2020 and the hot air balloons were there. Unfortunately due to weather they stayed grounded but still a great place.
