Everything was nice, this was our first time coming and we had a good time. Next time I will request a view of the mountain versus the parking lot. However, the rooms were big and spacious and clean. Thanks

I recently did a weekend getaway with my family. We chose Shanty Creek due to it being so close to family in town. When checking in, the front desk was very helpful, and made sure we had a map to get to our room. When walking into the room we noticed the beautiful view of the lake. After settling in...

Though these are very nice accommodations and a beautiful setting, we will not return. The locals seem unfriendly and the police are definitely hostile to vacationers. The unofficial motto of the city is "Come on vacation, leave on probation".

We stayed here for fall colors, and we were not disappointed. We had a room with a fireplace and a balcony with a lake view. The room had a kitchenette as well. The only negative is that the walls are pretty thin....

We are not golfers, but we got a great deal here. The room was perfect, the view was incredible and the staff was wonderful. Went to town (Belair) for dinner and beer at Shorts Brewery. Great food! Would come back to the Shanty for future trips.

I purchased a Groupon and paid $150 for a one night stay. A stay here should not cost more than $100 a night. Rooms are in the process of being updated but the curtains look like they are from the 70s. The room was on the small side for the price and we had no view. Also, there were screaming...

I came to Shanty Creek Resort - Summit Village in September for a conference. The hotel property was beautiful! Inside there were fireplaces with lounges and outside there was a volleyball area and fire pit. The hotel rooms were very spacious and comfortable. There is one restaurant in the Hotel itself and a lounge area, and right outside the hotel...
