Fall at Shanty Creek

Cedar River Fall



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.
