My wife and I stayed in a very spacious room complete with a full kitchen, fireplace, and Jacuzzi tub. Our teenage son and daughter stayed in the adjoining room with two double beds. Both rooms had private decks overlooking Lake Bellaire where we enjoyed coffee in the mornings and breathtaking sunset views in the evening. My son and I skied...

First time visitor to Shanty Creek Resorts, it's so big! We planned a weekend here to check it out and snowshoe their trails available. Check-in was quick and painless (after we found the right resort, started at cedar river). They don't have one main lodge to check-in to, something to note for first-time visitors. The receptionist also did not provide...

Wish I would have stayed elsewhere for my Brothers wedding that was held at the resort. (Long, but honest review) When I first tried to book a room nobody answered the phone. I called on 4 separate occasions. I left two messages with no return calls. On my four and finally attempt I was able to speak with someone and...

My husband and I just wanted a fun, relaxing vacation! We were bummed we couldn't afford somewhere fancy at first, but this place absolutely was exactly what we were looking for. Loved Bellaire. It was a welcoming, open town. Not touristy. We spent most our time there. The resort staff was also excellent. Recommend

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'm writing this review during our visit at Shanty Creek Summit Villages. My wife and I are staying here through an off season special offer our timeshare/vacation club. We are in the Trapper Lodge section. We are in a two bedroom, two bath unit. The pros: very rustic, nice wood burning fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, lots of bath and bed...

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....

Just returned from Michigan for a family wedding nearby. Reservations were made at Shanty Creek Resort - Summit Village and the family and friends all stayed there for the weekend. What a wonderful place to stay. The view was amazing from our room balcony. The trees were turning so it made the view even more spectacular. The grounds were very...
