About Deb

We were the featured Shanty Creek condo in Up North Living Magazine. You'll read all about us in the framed article that hangs in our condo. Our daughters have grown up at Shanty Creek and our family memories are rich and deep. You too will gather great memories and we hope you'll start by staying with us.

Deb purchased this condo in 1999

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Great location for skiing! Lots of room. Very comfortable for 3 families. Second year renting this unit. We have rented many units over the years and found this to be the best spot. Also working with Deb was very easy. She handled any issues we had very promptly. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo.

Wonderful setting, location, and decor!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best places I have stayed and will continue to do so every year. The condo is very clean, up to date and cozy. It is the perfect location for skiers or family who want to stay close to their skiers and relax. My preference is to visit this condo during the ski season but would also stay during summer or fall while visiting Northern Michigan and Torch Lake.

Awesome rental with tons of room and things to do

  • 5 of 5

Six of my closest friends and I stayed here for 4 days and had an absolute blast. The size of the condo was far beyond our expectations. When we weren't in the condo relaxing, cooking, or playing games, we were spending time down at the pool by our place or in downtown Bellaire at Shorts Brewery. I cannot recommend this place enough and can't wait to come back one day!

Great !!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights.

The place is very clean and updated. It is very welcoming and comfortable. We felt like it was our own house with hotel facilities.

It is a very large house, we did not touch the second level. There were plenty of blankets, bed sheets, pillow covers and towels.

Please do not take anything with you- like we did, the house is fully packed with all your needs and much more.

We are already recommending the place to family and friends, and will sure be back.

Thanks Deb!!!

Perfect getaway with plenty of things to do nearby

  • 4 of 5

We rented the property for a long weekend getaway. The property was well maintained and had everything we needed for our family. We enjoyed evenings by the fireplace and relaxing on the deck overlooking the ski slope. We enjoyed early morning walks around the grounds and golf course. There are several things to do in Northern Michigan and we were able to take advantage of those options making for an enjoyable trip. Deb was great to work with and was very responsive. Highly recommended.
