Amazing Condo with a spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this condo within the Shanty Creek Resort. The location was unbeatable; the unit was quant, nicely furnished, clean and had a stunning view! After a day of winter fun, we enjoyed thawing in the evenings to a nice fire in the fireplace. We had the maximum capacity and still fit nicely! We would highly recommend; you cannot beat the location for access to fun activities. We enjoyed, great skiing at Schuss Mountain. The swimming and tubing was walking distance within the resort and it’s close to downtown Bellaire. The owners of the property were great to work with too. A great location!!

Clean and Cozy, perfect for a family with 3 small children!

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything my wife and I needed to enjoy time away with our 3 children (9, 6 and 2). Steve was incredibly responsive and made our stay easy and enjoyable. The complex provided free wood in a covered shed right across the parking lot as well, so no need to buy bundles. The views of Lake Bellaire from the back porch are amazing. You can't beat this property for the price! We will return!
