I went for a conference, my first time at this part of Shanty Creek. The rooms are big with a sitting room and separate bedroom. It was clean and nicely decorated. I had very little contact with the staff as everything was organized and I had no problems. The food was hot and tastey. I would recommend this hotel.

I only golfed at Cedar River and did not stay, so I can't judge the lodging but it looked nice. The Cedar River course was beautiful, wide fairways through the woods. The course is very fair and I would say this is one of the best courses I have played up north, I would strongly recommend the course.

We stayed in the basic 2 queen bed suite. There is plenty of room for 4 people. The bathroom is huge with a shower stall and a whirlpool. The common room was comfortable maybe could use another lounging chair though. There is a dining table and a little kitchenette - no utensils or plates or anything. Also, there is no... More

Huge shout out to Leslie in reservations for the condos at Cedar River/Shanty Creek Resorts and Jim Richardson, Coldwell Banker Schmidt Realtors. I was on crutches from a fresh injury and our daughter was scheduled to race at the resort. On short notice, Jim recommended I call Leslie to see if they had any last minute overnight accommodations. Not only... More

We stayed at the Lodge at Cedar River. Room 206. The beds and other furniture were comfortable. Our room was like a sauna though. We actually turned our heat completely off and cracked a couple of windows. There was a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. The downside is that we had to bring our own plates, bowls, utensils, etc. We've... More

Love the ski in/out with the kids. The skiing is great and the location can't be beat. Free breakfast was better than last year and worth doing. Dinner is still to be avoided at River Bistro. Front desk staff is fantastic. Sky light in the master bedroom was an awful idea.

This place is absolutely gorgeous, from the nice landscape views to the way the rooms are set up. When I first arrived, I was not expecting to be so far away from the city, but truly enjoyed the peace and quietness of my stay. The rooms are very spacious, fairly clean (could be cleaner), and easy to unpack and unwind... More

Our Shanty Creek Resort was filled with awe in the beauty of the location of these condos. If you like nature, and who doesn't, you will fall in love the area.. The resort itself was nothing special except for the fact that EVERY building was built on a different elevation looking into the Bellaire Lake. The rooms need updating, but... More

Beautiful, challenging, but fair golf course. Ever hole is "Pure Michigan". A little pricey $68 for a Tuesday the end of September, but we had the course to our selves, so worth the splurge. Staff was helpful and friendly. Plenty of restrooms available .... Always a plus on a course

Outstanding stay at The Lodge at Cedar River. The New River Bistro is now open and has a good menu, lounge area, pool table, Darts and other activities for all age's. The Outdoor pool and Hot Tubs are nice and you can request rooms pool side or with a view of the Golf Course. Pool side can be quite noisy... More
