Shanty Creek Resorts can be "hit and miss''. We've been coming here off and on for decades and I have to say, in general, the place has seen better days. Certainly not worth the premium price but they are the only resort/major hotel in the area ... not to mention the golf and skiing.

The Shanty Creek Complex has multiple areas associated with the name. My wife and I stayed at the Lakeview Hotel as part of a conference she attended. Our room was very comfortable, and it appeared to have been recently renovated. Room plenty spacious for two people. We had twin queen beds. Very comfortable. Bathroom also very nice. Separate shower/toilet area... More

We visited Shanty creek for a quick anniversary getaway. All of our expectations were exceeded in every way. We visited during the off-season, there was only one other couple in our building which made our location very private and secluded. Our condo had gorgeous views of the woods and golf course from the sitting area and deck. The room was... More

Staying at Shanty Creek Resorts - at the Cedar River Golfside Condo was great as we were able to take advantage of the golf courses at Shanty Creek Resorts. They have 4 courses that are very different and make for great rounds of golf. Our two favorites are Cedar River Golf Course and The Legend. Each of these courses offer... More

The experience was wonderful from the moment I walked into the resort! I could see the sun setting through the huge windows in the dinning area, it was beautiful! I was greeted with a warm, friendly smile. The room was amazing, the bed was unbelievably comfortable and view from our deck was gorgeous! I look forward to our next visit!

We ski at Schuss every February with multiple families and can always count on having a great time... The hill is very manageable (but still fun for the midwest), the property is always well-maintained, and the staff is always very helpful and friendly. My family and I have been visiting Schuss for more than 20 years, and as long as... More

The resort is great but on a rainy day we went to the Hotel dining room for lunch. Our first hint should have been it was vacant. the view was spectacular but the food and service were not up to par like their courses. It was hard to even get attention from the staff to get seated, the service was... More

My experience was very good at Shanty Creek. Staff was friendly and most very attentive. I had to have an emergency package shipped to the resort and though the initial front desk folks couldn't find it one of the more experienced staff members took it upon herself top track down the delivery and get it to me that evening.

Shanty Creek Resorts has everything you need for fun. Great food and lodging at the Summit and five area golf courses that seem to never end.Swimming pools, hiking, and close to Bellaire markets and town. Take time, unwind and come back in the winter for the best skiing around!
