About Steve Dixon

I grew up in Green Bay Wisconsin and went to UW-Madison. I always enjoyed the climate and change of seasons in Wisconsin. Early in my career I was transferred to Michigan to work in the automotive industry. Growing up, golf was a very important part of my life and remains so today. Shortly after moving to Michigan I was able to go on golf trips in northern Michigan. Northern Michigan reminded me of Wisconsin although, truth be told, I thought it was even more beautiful. More golf courses and the sand dunes and bluffs on the northwest side of the state have no equal.

Steve Dixon purchased this condo in 2014

Why Steve Dixon chose Northern Michigan

I chose Shanty Creek and specifically Windcliff, first because of the area. It is close to Traverse City, if you need any of the things a bigger city can offer. The golf and skiing are some of the best in the state. And even if you don't ski or play golf there is an unlimited amount of outdoor activities.

What makes this condo unique

My specific unit at Windcliff has recently been remodeled with maple cabinets, new refrigerator, new bath fixtures, solid counter tops and new tile in the bath and kitchenette. The Windcliff location is perfect. It is located right across the street from the Lakeview hotel and conference center, as well as across the street from the Legend/Summit golf course pro shop.

This unit is very comfortable for a couple or young family. And best of all I am able to price it at a very affordable rate. I really want to share the beauty of northern Michigan with as many people as possible. Use the 'BOOK IT' feature and reserve your next up north vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very nice for one or 2 people I especially liked how close it was to the resort so I could walk next door to use the gym every day

Ski weekend with the kids

  • 4 of 5

This reasonably priced condo met our needs perfectly. Our family of four fit comfortably. We brought an air mattress and it was able to fit in the living room. The place was clean and the kitchen and bathroom were updated. The kitchen could use some new pots and pans as they were pretty scratched. Remember to bring a hair dryer. The location was ideal. Right next door to the hotel where you can swim and snowtube. Thank you for the great stay! We would rent again.

Immaculate and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This location was perfect for a conference we were attending next door at the Lakeview Hotel. We could literally walk over just minutes before we had to be there. The condo was spotless, with a comfortable bed, and a kitchen that was well-equipped. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. I get a lot of last minute reservations. In fact I have set up this condo to be conducive to last minute reservations. There is a combination lock on the door which we program the code of the guests choice when reserved in advance. For last minute reservations I have a few codes pre-programmed. So please, never think it's too late to go up north.
