“Nice condo to view the area”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We stayed late July, 2013 for one week. The condo was lovely; not upgraded with granite, etc but very nice and clean built in the 1980's with plenty of room. It was near everything yet far away from everything (an hour or so) not what I would consider a resort. We went to Torch lake on day (15 minutes), Traverse City (1 hour), Wine Tasting on Old Mission Penninsula (1+hours), Charlevoix, and to the Light Houses on Lake Mi. There was nothing to do at the Condo sans a very small pool that required a 5-10 minute by car drive and small club house and tiny beach on Lake Bellaire (+10 min drive). Perhaps if you golf or go during ski season, this would appear as more of a resort as there is a small ski hill and X country skiing on site. We had a good time and enjoyed our "up North" vacation.

Reviewed February 17, 2008

We stayed in the Crosswinds Condos through vactaion properties network (vacation club). We did the exchange through rci, and were very happy with this exchange. We chose this location because we wanted to get away for 3 days and go skiing . The mountian that is close to this resort is Schuss Mountain. We usually try to go skiing there at least once a year because it is only 4 hours from our house. This was rated as a gold crown and it did meet those expectations.
We had a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit. This was very comfortable with 2 adults and 3 teenagers. The living area had a gas fireplace and the master bedroom had a wirlpool tub.
At the Summit Hotel next door you can use their indoor pool and hot tub which is nice after skiing the whole day.
Schuss Mountain is very family orientated, and they upgraded their terrain park which includes a beginers section and an advanced section. They also put in a half pipe. Both of my boys are snowboarders and spent alot of time in this area. We will definitely go back because the location is not too far of a drive for us.

  • Liked — Clean and looked fairly new or updated-walking distance to the pool and hot tub.
  • Disliked — lots of stairs, but we were in a upper unit so that is to be expected.
