Fresh Air Is a Destination.

Fall traditions are among our most endearing, celebrating the highlights of the season.

Back to school.
The return of football season.
And all-things pumpkin spice.

In your room, on the golf course, or a chairlift high above Northern Michigan's skyline, 360° views of Autumn’s splendor will greet you at every turn of Shanty Creek Resort.

And with lodging as low as $208/night, it's easy to see why Bellaire is THE premier destination for a fall getaway Up North.

Antrim County's Chain of Lakes watershed is 75 miles of northern Michigan’s most beautiful waterways, which includes 14 lakes and interconnecting rivers. The Chain begins in Beals Lake and flows 55 miles, ultimately into East Grand Traverse Bay.

Fishing. Boating. Water skiing. Kayaking. And a very popular sandbar. The turquoise blue waters of Antrim County’s famous Chain of Lakes is literally in Shanty Creek’s backyard.

Torch Lake gets the buzz, named among "the most beautiful lakes in the world” by National Geographic (and deservedly so), but The Chain is much more.
