About the property

Highest Point at Summit Village - Best View

The House on Windy Hill. It sounds like somewhere special. Somewhere you want to be. Somewhere to spend your next vacation or family gathering.

This 4000 sq. foot home is located atop Windy Hill at Shanty Creek. Sit on the deck and take in the gorgeous views of Lake Bellaire while enjoying a cold drink or a steak on the grill.

As soon as you walk through the front door you are greeted with an amazing view of Lake Bellaire and an open floor plan with winding staircases. Take the staircase up and you find yourself in the entryway to the master bedroom looking down on the living room. A little further and you arrive at the master bedroom. A king bed will certainly be welcome after a long day on the lake or just relaxing in the fresh air. A Jacuzzi can also be found in the master bedroom along with a full bath and shower.

Wind back down and you will find the full kitchen complete with all the appliances needed for a fantastic meal and dining room with seating for eight. Relax in the living room and enjoy the view or conversation.

A little further down the hall you will find two guest bedrooms both with queen beds and a full guest bath. As you pass you will see the laundry room complete with washer and dryer. One more winding staircase down and you are at the lower level family room. The mini bar is at the end of the staircase to greet you.

In the family room you will find a large sectional sofa, dining table with seating for four, a large flat screen TV, a checkers table, and multiple board games. You will also find a guest bedroom with queen bed and a guest bath. Look down the other hall and see the fabulous child's bedroom with a twin bed, and a bunk bed with a single and a double. Decorated in primary colors with a Mickey Mouse theme and nostalgic childhood toys and books, the kids will certainly have a ball.

Outside you will find a swing set for the kids and a fire pit for those cherished memories around the campfire. You will also enjoy access to the Resort's heated pool, plus Shanty Creeks Private Beach club during the summer months. We welcome you to enjoy The House on Windy Hill.

Perfect for my family and location

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the accommodations. It fit our needs perfectly and its location was near many of the places we wished to see and enjoy. I have only one complaint. We found the carpeting on the main floor stained and were not sure of its cleanliness upon our arrival. We found a vacuum cleaner in the basement but it did not work. I know that with people going in and out of the house it is hard to keep the carpeting perfect but it most likely needs a good shampooing. Otherwise the place was great. It contained all the right amenities and the view was wonderful. We would definitely consider returning for a family gathering.

Owner's Response: Hi Philip, Thank you so much for being our guest. We are happy to hear that the house fit your needs and was close to everything. We will certainly address the carpeting as it does get used a lot in the summer with folks going in and out. We apologize for that. A new vacuum has been purchased and stored where everyone can use it if needed. We are also glad you enjoyed the view! We would love to have you back as our guests! Thanks again and enjoy the rest of the summer.

We Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our large family. It was exactly as described. We found many spiders but we expected that because the home is in a wooded area.

There are so many choices for things to do! We are located at Shanty Creek. We are close to the skiing and tubing hills. If you venture into the village of Bellaire, you won't be disappointed. Short's Brewing Company is right downtown. Not only do they have 19+ beers on tap, the menu is extraordinary. They create the best food with local ingredients and have some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. The local movie theater has two screens and offers new releases weekly. Grass River Natural Area is a short drive and offers hiking trails, nature walks, education and learning areas, and wildlife viewing. Venture a little further and you will come upon the small town of Alden. If you are looking for a day of window shopping, Alden is the place for you. Alden Millhouse has everything you could want for the chef, baker, or kitchen gadget collector in your life. Other shops include Carter's Candles, Alden Outfitters, Curosities Antiques, LaVoix Designs Fashions, Nifty Things, Spencer Creek Trading Company, The Warm Fuzzy, Winter Workshop, Redeye Gallery, and The Pear Tree. After a full day, relax and enjoy a good meal at the Alden Bar and Grill. If you are up to more exploring, we are 40 minutes from Traverse City, Charlevoix, and Gaylord, We hope you will take this opportunity to give us a call or send an email. We welcome you to enjoy this beautiful area we call home.
