Property description

**Recently named Conde Nast Travelers Top 121 Golf Course in the world, and earned top spot for State of Michigan** Pick from over 50 courses within an hour drive!
Voted #1 ski resort in the State of Michigan by Tickets can be purchased for discount on or at the Cedar River Lodge near the home.
As you enter The Troon House you feel the atmosphere of casual elegance. This Craftsman-style, up North home is located on the first green of the Cedar River Golf course at Shanty Creek. You will have spectacular views of the green and a deck to relax and enjoy the experience. The home features six beautiful bedrooms, 4.5 baths and can comfortably sleep up to 16. As you enter the large foyer, you will notice the accommodating kitchen to the right. It offers a double oven and JennAir Range with grill and side-by side refrigerator. The cozy breakfast nook provides the perfect spot for a lazy morning enjoying breakfast or reading the paper. The bar area in the kitchen easily provides the perfect gathering spot for entertaining. A large dining table which graciously seats six has a beautiful view of the two story stone fireplace. The main floor living room has gorgeous views of the Cedar River Golf Course and provides ample seating for company as well as corner chairs and a sitting area for those quiet times. The main floor bedroom offers a comfortable king bed with a Jacuzzi in the bath. The upper bedroom offers a queen bed, and private bath with Jacuzzi. The loft bedroom to the left of the foyer is definitely a ‘bonus’. It offers a queen bed, plus a trundle with two twins, and a private bath. The lower level is a home onto itself. This family room has a TV, stone fireplace, and a patio door which exits out to the golf course. There is also a fire pit for those chilly cozy nights up north.
The full kitchen with bar in the lower level offers just a little bit of extra luxury for that late night snack or cozy dinner. There are three separate sleeping areas in the lower level: two bedrooms with queen beds in each and a ‘bonus’ room with three twin beds. There is also a guest bath with a relaxing sauna in the lower level. The laundry/mud room as you enter from the two-car garage offers a washer and a dryer.
The house is beautiful but the best part is its location-which was picked over twenty years ago. Located in Cedar River Village, at Shanty Creek, you have access to numerous golf course, ski hills, spas, and walking/hiking trails. The Chain of Lakes featuring Torch Lake is just minutes away. Downtown Bellaire within three miles offers a vast selection of restaurants, and dining options.

Car: Necessary

The Troon House is located within Cedar River at Shanty Creek Resort. There are many amenities such as six golf courses, ski hills, tubing park, health club, and many restaurants at each village. We located here because it is central to beautiful lakes such as Torch Lake, Lake Bellaire, and Lake Michigan. It is also next to the quaint town of Bellaire which has may popular shops and restaurants such as Lulu's, Moka, Bellaire Bar, and the famous Short's Brewery. The Dockside at Torch Lake near Alden is a favorite for locals and visitors alike. Our house is approximately thirty miles from Traverse City so you are close to the many festivals and wine tastings out on the peninsula. We are also within forty minutes of Charlevoix and Petoskey which have beautiful views of the water, unique shops, and wonderful restaurants and cafes. We are an equal distance from Odawa Casino in Petoskey, and Turtle Creek Casino in Wiliamsburg. This area has many beautiful things to see and do. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
