Very nice house with close proximity to Torch Lake! The great room is huge and very open!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house great for large groups! First floor is fantastic for entertaining. Two rooms that sleep 4 people each upstairs, an amazing master suite (See pictures). Basement is large with many beds but still room to hang out. Kitchen is beautiful! Also the 3 car garage is great for storing all the outdoor toys. Our stay was truly fantastic! Great hosts!

Beautiful Home and great views

  • 4 of 5

We had 12 guys and plenty of room. Great location. The house needs a little maintenance but it didn’t have an effect on our stay. There was zero seating available outside the home, so bring some chairs. We also brought our own grill because the property didn’t have one.

The Carriage House amazing! Very comfortably for our group of 15 adults.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lot of fun at the Carriage House. There were a few minor plumbing issues in the kitchen, but nothing major. Would definitely stay again.

Spacious property for large group

  • 4 of 5

The check-in process was very easy. The house was well divided to have multiple people sleep soundly - we were able to have babies sleeping upstairs, while older kids were being noisy in the basement. We had an issue with a leaking sink and it was quickly fixed. Finishes and furniture were average to slightly worn and house was clean. The resort is well positioned geographically to do a lot of neat day trips: Torch lake is gorgeous and only 10 minutes away; Sleeping Bear Dunes was about 1.5 hours away and a great day trip; the small local towns of Bellaire and Alden had limited, but nice eating options. The resort pool and hot tubs were old, but our kids did not care. There is no baby pool available at Cedar River lodge.

The Log Home is located within Cedar River Village 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 Belliare which has many popular shops and restaurants such as Toonies, Moka, Belliare 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 30 minutes 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 Williamsburg. This area has many beautiful things to see and do. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
