We stayed at Shanty Creek Resorts - Cedar River Village, 2 bedroom hotel room #331. It was a full kitchen with full size fridge, microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher and stove. It has limited but enough dishes, plates and cutlery. The master bedroom (one double bed, kind of small) has an ensuite bathroom, the other room (two double beds) for the...

We spent a night at Cedar River and were pleasantly surprised. We chose this lodge because the ski school is located on the lower level, and 3 of the 4 family members needed a lesson. There was plenty of parking, and our room was spacious. Ski lessons were easy to arrange. Just a short distance from the building is the...

Forget the rest, Shanty is the best! Great downhill skiing, tubular tubing and swimming outside in the snow?! Traverse City has a lot to offer, and Shanty is the perfect family resort escape. The room was perfect for a family - plenty of space. And with Shorts brewing right down the road, this place was a blast. Do it!

My family of four spent a weekend in January at Cedar River Village at Shanty Creek Resorts. This was in combination with a work event for my husband. Cedar River Village is very convenient if you plan on skiing. It is at the base of the purple lift on Schuss Mountain. The ski school and rentals are all on the...

My son wanted to ski up north after fall semester finals. I was able to find a great deal on a weekly rental at Shanty Creek Golf Side condos through Armed Forces Vacation Club (AFVC). Our rental was a two level (approx. 3000 sq ft) 3 bedroom (2 master suites) 3.5 bath condo with a fully stocked kitchen and large...

We stayed at Cedar River Lodge over Christmas. Great location and so clean and comfortable. Our family of 4 enjoyed the amenities including ski in/ski out from the purple lift, free shuttle and River Bistro downstairs. Nice to have a suite to spread out vs. a hotel room. We will return to Shanty Creek and stay at Cedar River Lodge!

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...

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...
