Had a very good meal and service at the Lakeview restaurant and bar. Went back a second time. Fantastic views too.

When we first got to our room, we were very impressed. It was newly renovated, looked very clean and our view from the balcony was fantastic. However, when we opened the curtains in the bedroom, the window and ceiling were covered in orange ladybugs. On our way downstairs, we noticed that there were also bugs all over our hallway, alive...

First time skiing at Shanty Creek / Schuss Mountain in about 8 - 10 years. We mostly would go to Crystal or Nubs Nob, but I am very impressed with the hospitality and streamlined service for their rentals, and their Cedar River Lodge. The slopes were in good condition for a late-season outing. I would suggest they look into "refreshing"... More

The staff is very friendly and for the most part go out of their way for you to have a great stay. The ski school is wonderful and very patient with the beginner skiers, especially the children. The hotel itself, although renovated in the last 10 years is showing signs of wear and the carpeting on stairs and hallways is... More

Whenever there is a good base, you must try this place if you haven't already. Have been skiing here for years. The personnel are awesome from check-in to departure and that includes the lift operators, restaurant and especially the front desk personnel. We have stayed in all the different accommodations and will now only stay at the Cedar River resort.... More

We skied 2 days at Schuss. That was enough.. Not much going on at Shanty Creek, although would be great for beginners. The tubing hill was moved from Schuss to Shanty Creek a few years ago. Is pretty lame. Was better when it was at Schuss. Schuss is a great place to ski that doesn't require a huge drive from... More

I made the mistake of signing up 3 teenagers for a semi private ski lesson. I wasted $70, because they weren't all the EXACT same ability. The lesson was great for one skier, but the other two were basically ignored and didn't even get pointers while on the chairlift. There is not a group option for kids over 12, please... More

Would never come here again or recommend this place to anyone.1st and last time. Planned to stay all weekend,but checked out after 1 night. I was shocked when I got there and found out there was a 20% tax!! 9% of it was just for the resort! Is that what they consider a resort??! Yes we have paid resort fees,but... More
