This four-season resort is an iconic destination located in Michigan’s Chain of Lakes Water Trail, a 100-mile inland water trail that traverses four counties, 12 lakes and interconnected rivers, and vibrant communities. Set in Antrim County, Shanty Creek is surrounded by miles of world-class mountain biking and hiking trails, diverse marshy habitat, rivers and lakes, and features four distinct villages across more than 5,500 acres of landscape: Summit Village, Cedar River Village, Schuss Village, and Hawk’s Eye Village. Each of the villages bring their own unique perspective to the overall Shanty Creek experience, in which dining, lodging, and recreational opportunities reflect different architectural styles and inspiration—and 90 holes of golf across five championship courses.

There is the Cedar River Golf Club designed by Tom Weiskopf, opened in 1999, and The Legend Golf Club designed by Arnold Palmer, opened in 1986, featuring water hazards, elevation changes, and well-placed traps. Schuss Mountain Golf Club designed by Warner Bowen, opened in 1972, features a 7,013-yard course that plays like two distinct nine-hole courses across forest, wetlands, and hills; while Summit Golf Club designed by William Diddel, opened in 1965, with its fast, challenging greens intended to test players’ short game. And with the recently acquired Hawk’s Eye Golf Course in Bellaire, Shanty Creek has also added Hawk’s Eye Golf Club designed by John Robinson, opened in 2004, to its portfolio. Considered a complement to Cedar River and The Legend, Hawk’s Eye offers panoramic views, water hazards, and challenging putting greens.

Shanty Creek also offers a resort-based shuttle service that can transport guests to and through the four resort villages, allowing visitors to take advantage of all of the amenities each of the villages has to offer them. Summit Village, often known as the original Shanty Creek, features lodging options at the Lakeview Hotel and Trappers Lodge Condominiums, dining like Lakeview Restaurant and CoffeeBAR, and amenities like a fitness center, heated indoor and outdoor pools, and the Lakeview Conference Center.

Cedar River Village offers lodging in one- and two-bedroom suites at The Lodge of Cedar River, dining at The River Bistro, TopGolf, hiking and biking trails, and a year-round heated outdoor swimming pool. Schuss Village offers accommodations from Bergrand Condos, Vienna Woods Homes, and The Schuss Lodge, while Hawk’s Eye Village offers dining through its Chipper’s Pub.

While a vacation destination in its own right, Shanty Creek Resort’s shuttle system also provides transport to nearby cities and villages to explore local amenities and attractions like area museums and shopping, paddling trips, boating and fishing, and craft spirits, microbreweries, and wineries in the region. Shanty Creek also offers a number of packages and menu of options for golf retreats, corporate meetings, group reunions, and destination weddings with its over 36,000 square feet of event space and state-of-the-art AV equipment.
