Mountain View Townhouse
3 BR w/ extra loft | 2 Full Bath | 1480 SF | Sleeps 9
Eat, play, and relax in all four seasons in one of Michigan’s most beautiful resort areas. Mountainview is an end-unit condo and was just completely renovated! It is nestled in the woodsy, secluded Sudendorf community within the Shanty Creek / Schuss Mountain Resort area.
This gorgeous townhouse rests at the base of Schuss and offers a one-of-a-kind view of the mountain year-round with fall colors and ski-resort activity to entertain and delight.
Mountainview sleeps 9 comfortably and offers a full kitchen, large bedrooms (one with a custom gaming station), Wi-Fi, cable TV, and in-house laundry facilities. In the warmer months, rest on the balcony overlooking the heated pool, which is private only to Sudendorf guests. Mountainview Townhouse also provides our guests with membership access to the indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs at The Summit Village as well as at the Lodges at Schuss and Shanty Creek.
The Bellaire area offers access to hundreds of attractions. Shanty Creek boasts four championship golf courses: Cedar River (Weiskopf), The Legend (Palmer), Schuss Mountain Course, and Summit Course. In addition, other excellent courses are conveniently located nearby. Take a short trip to Lake Bellaire, Torch Lake, or Grand Traverse Bay on Lake Michigan for swimming or boating, or enjoy a nice, relaxing canoe ride down the Jordan river.
After a long day on the links, shopping, hiking, biking, swimming, or boating, return to air-conditioned comfort at Mountainview. For the colder months, curl up in front of the fireplace with a good book and good company, with firewood provided at no charge.
We look forward to hosting you, your family, and friends at Mountainview Townhouse - your comfortable home base for an incredible up-north experience!
