Things To Do

It’s only a few minutes walk to the very top of the mountain where a great view of Lake Bellaire awaits! This is where the kids can swim in the Lakeview hotel outdoor pool. Visiting in Winter? Ski all day! The Schuss Mountain has the best skiing and snowboarding around and the lifts are nearby. Boyne Mountain is another downhill destination. Bring your Fat Mountain Bikes, cross country skis and snowshoes so everyone can enjoy the outdoors. Chase the winter’s chill away by warming up in front of the wood burning fireplace at the Valley View Lodge on the mountain.

Family-friendly Schuss Mountain is not the only landmark that makes this area famous; several nearby World Class golf courses are right here and challenge all levels of links-lovers - guests have told us they are the most picturesque golf courses in the state. Choose from Cedar River (Weiskopf), The Legend (Palmer), Schuss Mountain Course, and Summit Course.

Booking your Northern Michigan lodge with us means your family can live like a local and see the best local spots - visit gorgeous Torch Lake, hike and bike on well-kept trails including the trial to the top of the hill just a short distance from the house. A summer afternoon in Grand Traverse Bay on Lake Michigan can’t be beat for swimming or boating. We can help you plan a canoe ride down the Jordan river.

Things to remember: WiFi can sometimes be interrupted in the Shanty Creek area by the weather, snow, etc.

About the Owner/Manager

There’s everywhere else, and then there’s Up North. My brother Joe and I (Jim Meloche) started after years of vacationing in Northern Michigan. We spent our childhood vacations skiing, golfing, fishing, swimming and exploring the lakes and rivers. Eight years ago, we bought our first vacation home in the area and started turning cabin time into a full-time lifestyle.

We love mountain biking, snowboarding and staring aimlessly at the pines — sometimes with a bourbon in-hand. We also love rehabilitating run-down properties into beautiful and unique vacation homes. The North holds some of our favorite memories, and now it can be home to some of yours.
