Guestbook comments from the owner

Booked this place pretty short notice -was very pleased upon arrival. Glad to see coffee maker (and coffee!) - micro -stovetop (used micro-not stovetop) Bed extremely comfortable, room updated and clean. Directions from owner were very accurate. Never stayed at Shanty Creek before - came up to go to Torch Lake for the weekend - brought boat. Parking could accomodate the boat - ate two nights at the Pelicans Nest - excellent food and service! Launched on Clam Lake every day. Beautiful view of Lake Bellaire from window. Will definately stay here again.Didnt check out resort,maybe next time :)

Great get-away

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at extended stay condo at Shanty creek the first week in August (weekdays) and my family of four had a great time. It was easy to rent, my first time through the HomeAway website, and the owner called back right away. The condo was the right size for the four of us and had everything we needed to be comfortable --kitchen, balcony, table that seated 4, tv & dvd, comfy bed and pull-out couch. We had access to the beach and pools and a great view of lake Bellaire right from the window. I couldn't have asked for a better & more economical family get-away and would do it again.

Great place for 2 or family of 4

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The unit was clean and comfortable. Everything worked as advertised except the WiFi.The resort WiFi is marginal at best. Do not plan on doing any streaming unless you want to walk up to the lodge. I wish there had been a toaster instead of having to use the toaster oven, additionally, this is a second floor unit and the stairs are kind of steep. It was not an issue for us but others might have concerns. Over all a good place that we would use again.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The tubing was great, my daughter loved the pool, hot tub wasn't working on the last day though. Overall the condo is very nice, I wasn't a fan of the beds but overall a good stay.

Great Labor Day Destination

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. We enjoyed the tennis courts and swimming pool on the Shanty property. All within an easy walking distance. Also, it is a quick drive to quaint little northern Michigan towns that are fun to explore. We brought supplies to make breakfast and found that the condo had all the basics to make it easy to eat in. We would definitely stay again!
