Family-Friendly Resort with Lake and Mountain Views

No interior designer, no matter the budget, can compete with Mother Nature. As luxurious as a recent multimillion-dollar overhaul has made Shanty Creek Resorts’ Summit Village Lakeview Hotel’s lobby, a look past the elegant chandeliers and velvet seating can only complement the resort’s sweeping views of hardwood forests along Lake Bellaire. Just out the door, the Summit and Schuss Mountains draw visitors year-round to their 53 trails and four terrain parks. And while the weather’s still warm enough to hit the links, golfers come for the Legend and Summit Golf Courses, which inspired Conde Nast Traveler to name Shanty Creek one of the world’s best golf resorts.

For dinner, guests can wander down to The Lakeview Restaurant, for local smoked whitefish gratin, roasted duck, and other regionally influenced cuisine. While you’re having dinner, you’ll take in picturesque views of the lake from floor-to-ceiling windows. The dining room’s large, wood-burning fireplace warms up the space on winter nights, while a handsome wooden bar draws guests looking to relax with a cocktail or perform a rousing clog-dancing routine on its surface.

Rooms have a private balcony or patio. With its dark-wood furniture and pale-gold walls, the room simultaneously feels both rustic and stately. For quick access to the ski trails, the other two villages, or nearby downtown Bellaire, hop on the resort’s complimentary shuttle. While you’re here, there’s plenty to do: horseback riding, boating on Lake Bellaire, wine tasting on the Leelanau Peninsula, and much more.

Bellaire, Michigan: Quaint Lakeside Village with Mountain Activities

Located about 1.5 hours east of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, the area around Bellaire, Michigan undulates with modest peaks and valleys. The dual peaks at Shanty Creek become a skier's haven in the winter. Supertickets provide all-day access to trails on Summit Mountain and Schuss Mountain, which include NASTAR racing courses that let skiers time their slalom runs or snowball-pitching speeds. Before winter arrives, the resort’s golf courses offer a scenic challenge—tee off from the hilltops at the Arnold Palmer–designed Legend course, or putt amid the wetlands at the Schuss course.

Both tourists and locals enjoy a leisurely walk down downtown Bellaire’s historic main street, where several quaint stores sell locally crafted items. For a break, you can grab a locally brewed pint at Shorts Brewing Company, where more than 20 beers are on tap each day.

We enjoyed the area & the number of things available to do.

The only reason we chose to stay at Shanty Creek was because of the Groupon special. We had a wedding to attend in Elk Rapids, but we're from the Saginaw area. We loved that it was such a good deal, a nice room, & a chance for us to explore a bit of the beauty of Northern Michigan without breaking the bank!
