We are following all health official recommendations for extra cleaning and disinfecting to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  And, our home is in a nice, safe, remote private section of the Shanty Creek resort in a sparsely populated region of Michigan. Please, if you are not feeling well or have been exposed to someone… stay home.

Our majestic Log Chalet is a luxurious yet rustic Log Home located directly on Schuss Mountain’s Chicken’s Choice ski run. Lighted for night skiing, and only minutes from Shanty Creek’s Arnold Palmer designed Legend Golf Course our home is the perfect golf or ski retreat ideal for families and couples alike.

Our 3000 square foot luxury home sleeps up to 20 in 10 individual beds (including one futon) in four bedrooms, a large sleeping loft (with two futons that have been converted into permanent beds), and the second lower-level great room and more “sleeping-furniture” to be described soon.  Click Here for more details on sleeping, etc.
