Choose from three village resorts:

Cedar River Village is home to a full service conference facility, Tom Weiskopf designed golf course, and access to some of the best skiing in Northern Michigan. With 86 luxury suites and condominiums and state of the art meeting space, Cedar River Village can satisfy even the most discriminating palate.

Schuss Village holds authentic European charm at its heart in rustic Northern Michigan. At Schuss Village with 35 guest rooms and suites, 22 condominiums, and 5 luxurious homes you can relax and enjoy your stay while also delving into a nature walk or playing the local favorite Schuss Mountain Golf Course. Come and enjoy the indoor and outdoor pools year round or enjoy a hearty meal at one of our restaurants. Schuss Mountain is nestled at the base of one of the largest ski mountains in Northern Michigan, so come and enjoy a few runs at skiing or a few holes of golf, no matter the season.

Summit Village offers breathtaking views of picturesque Lake Bellaire, two championship golf courses including The Legend, designed by Arnold Palmer and over 350 rooms ranging from hotel guest rooms to two-bedroom deluxe suites. A full service wellness spa, fitness center and business center are also available to meet even the busiest guests' needs. With over 16,000 sq. ft of meeting space, The Summit Village can handle your event, meeting or conference.

Choose from four golf courses:
Cedar River  was designed by PGA player & architect, Tom Weiskopf and named one of America's Top 100 Resort Courses by Golf Week and among the Top 1,000 Courses in the World by Rolex. One of Golf Magazine's "Top Ten in the U.S. You Can Play," this northern Michigan course offers five tees.

The Legend was designed by Arnold Palmer and has been awarded 4½ stars in Golf Digest's "Places to Play Directory." Cascading over hilltops with stunning views of Lake Bellaire and into valleys alongside crystal clear waters, The Legend was named one of the top four resort courses in the United States by the readers of Golf Magazine.

Schuss Mountain is annually named one of the top public courses in Michigan. A challenging course carved into Pure Michigan, Schuss Mountain delivers the challenge golfers seek throughout 6,922 yards of abundant wetlands, rolling hills, and wildlife.

Summit is Shanty Creek's original course. This William Diddel design is one of northern Michigan's gems rolling gently across the hills of Antrim County. A long-time favorite among golfers who favor wide fairways and fast greens.
