Well, here we go again. The Shanty Creek Resort is back in full swing with the runs open, lots of powder, and as if Mother Nature hasn’t been kind enough, the guns are adding to what is falling naturally. We’ve already had over 3 feet of the natural stuff this season, with good temps to keep it here, add in what is being made and you have some awesome skiing, boarding, & tubing conditions.
With its location in Antrim County, just thirty minutes from Traverse City, Petoskey, and Gaylord, Shanty Creek is in the heart of all that is this Winter Wonderland of Northern Michigan. As if the great skiing wasn’t enough, add in places in town like Short’s Brewery, Lulu’s Bistro, Toonies, The lakeside Grill, and Pelican Nest, you can also find world class dining right in the town of Bellaire, where the resort is located, not to mention all the other places to visit while in the area.
With all the area has to offer, mortgage rates at historic lows, and prices of homes and condos still at good prices, for the buyer anyway, this is a real good time to think about purchasing that second home, or maybe that retirement condo, or even a vacant piece of property to build that dream home on.
That’s the real beauty of the area. Sure, the winter sports scene is about as good as you’re gonna find anywhere, Antrim County is a truly four season paradise. Summer offers some of the best boating, kayaking, motorcycling, fishing, camping, pretty much whatever you want to do in the warm months. Fall colors are incredible here, with roads that are second to none for those color tours.
If you’re thinking it’s time to start enjoying the splendor of Northern Michigan like a local, there’s never been a better time than right now, and there is nowhere better than Northern Antrim County!
