On May 11, 2022, we had a clue the road project was about to commence at which time the Antrim County Road Commission was replacing culverts. The road was closed near the Clark farm that day. On May 16, 2022, the Antrim County Road commission posted this on their Facebook page; “Contractor starting work on Shanty Creek Rd/Schoolcraft Rd/Batchelder Rd./Del Mason Rd” True to their posting one lane traffic existed on Del Mason Road south of the former entrance to Cedar River; our long anticipated road repairs have begun. Please expect road construction traffic conditions and/or detours to exist now and for weeks to come. The resort’s paving project will also occur in the vicinity of the Lakeview Hotel. Please follow the Antrim County Road Commision Facebook page for updates.

2022-2023 Pool passes will be available for purchase starting 04-01-2022, and are valid from 04-01-2022 through 03-31-2023. Pool passes may be purchased with your annual SMPOA dues notice which was recently mailed to all SMPOA property owners or directly by stopping in at the Cortina Conference Center. SMPOA members may purchase one (1) pool pass at a cost of $125 (replacement passes also cost $125). Shanty Creek Resorts offers pool passes for sale for $500, which clearly makes the SMPOA member price an obvious member benefit.
*****Schuss Pool Update*****
The Schuss Pool will close for the season on Sunday, March 27th in conjunction with the end of ski season at Schuss. The Schuss Pool will re-open at the beginning of golf season for the summer. Once determined, we will post the re-opening date for the Schuss Pool on this site.
*****Schuss Pool Improvement Plans*****
The SMPOA Board is moving forward with the plans to restore the glass on the slopes side of the pool building. This project is a joint effort between Shanty Creek Resorts and SMPOA. A time table has not been finalized, but a rendering of the proposed changes can be viewed here .
*****Olds Professional Centre Name Change*****
“The Olds Professional Centre, LTD” is the company which is owned by Meredith Reschly and provides the accounting services for SMPOA as well as several other Associations throughout the area. The is the organization to which you mail your SMPOA dues each year. The name is changing to “The Bellaire Professional Centre, LLC” effective January 1, 2022. Only the name is changing – mailing address and personnel remain the same. A formal announcement from Meredith containing all the details can be found here.
*****Please maintain dogs on leash when not on your own property*****
There have been numerous reports of dogs being walked UNLEASHED in the SMPOA area, including the golf course. The state of Michigan has a very specific statute regarding this topic, which has been on the books since 1919 – Michigan Dog Leash Law . Accordingly, please maintain your dog on a leash at all times when not on your own property. We need to be respectful of all members and leashing your dog contributes to this goal while maintaining your opportunity to walk your dog. Additionally, plan accordingly so you can clean up after your dog when walking on something other than your own property. In doing these things, we help to make it a safer, more enjoyable area for all.
*****REMEMBER – T-SHIRTS ARE STILL AVAILABLE*****
We are very excited about this opportunity for our membership. The shirt is a very good quality “quick dry” material. If you are interested in sporting your SMPOA/SCR pride by wearing one of these fine shirts, they are available for $15, simply contact firstname.lastname@example.org The shirts make an excellent gift!
