Wish I would have stayed elsewhere for my Brothers wedding that was held at the resort. (Long, but honest review) When I first tried to book a room nobody answered the phone. I called on 4 separate occasions. I left two messages with no return calls. On my four and finally attempt I was able to speak with someone and...

My husband and I just wanted a fun, relaxing vacation! We were bummed we couldn't afford somewhere fancy at first, but this place absolutely was exactly what we were looking for. Loved Bellaire. It was a welcoming, open town. Not touristy. We spent most our time there. The resort staff was also excellent. Recommend

Everything was nice, this was our first time coming and we had a good time. Next time I will request a view of the mountain versus the parking lot. However, the rooms were big and spacious and clean. Thanks

When checking in, the front desk was very helpful, and made sure we had a map to get to our room. When walking into the room we noticed the beautiful view of the lake. After settling in...

Though these are very nice accommodations and a beautiful setting, we will not return. The locals seem unfriendly and the police are definitely hostile to vacationers. The unofficial motto of the city is "Come on vacation, leave on probation".

We stayed here for fall colors, and we were not disappointed. We had a room with a fireplace and a balcony with a lake view. The room had a kitchenette as well. The only negative is that the walls are pretty thin....

Just returned from Michigan for a family wedding nearby. Reservations were made at Shanty Creek Resort - Summit Village and the family and friends all stayed there for the weekend. What a wonderful place to stay. The view was amazing from our room balcony. The trees were turning so it made the view even more spectacular. The grounds were very...

We are not golfers, but we got a great deal here. The room was perfect, the view was incredible and the staff was wonderful. Went to town (Belair) for dinner and beer at Shorts Brewery. Great food! Would come back to the Shanty for future trips.

The area is beautiful and views of lake amazing but place needs some updating in rooms and overall areas throughout summit village. Staff are very friendly and help with anything you need. The dining room had great food this year as well!
