About Kevin & Poppy Blasch
Our family had been searching for the perfect up north retreat for years. Our goal was to find a quiet location that offered beautiful lakes, snow skiing, scenic landscapes and fun excursions within a short drive. Though, we had not been to the Shanty Creek area for many years, we discovered not only had we found our perfect up north retreat, we gained more than we had dreamed. The eateries, golfing, skiing, fun shops and friendly people made our long search worth it.
Kevin & Poppy Blasch purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Kevin & Poppy Blasch chose Bellaire
Our family was immediately sold on this property after seeing the flowing trout stream off our balcony, we have spent many hours just relaxing, listening to the sounds and enjoying the scenery. The fall colors are simply breathtaking. During the winter months, we enjoy snow shoeing along the cross country ski trails that wind around the Legend golf course and wooded areas on the Shanty Creek property. After a long day or simply for a few hours of chillin' we love the fireplace -- it just feels like up north.
What makes this Condo unique
Our condo complex is very quiet and peaceful. Renters have access to the pool and tennis courts which are a few yards from the condo. The property is located just off the Legend golf course which is very convenient and a great location to take long walks through the woods or along the private drives within the Shanty Creek resort. The access to the Bellaire Beach Club is simply a bonus. The beach and amenities are amazing. During the winter months, you can jump on the cross country ski trails virtually outside our door and go for miles (if you wish) snow shoeing or cross country skiing through scenic wooded areas. In the summer you can mountain bike or hike the Glacial hills near by. We hope you enjoy our vacation property as much as we do.

It was clean.
This condo was listed as having air conditioning, all it had was a portable air conditioning unit in the living room. The week end we stayed it was in the 90s , so the bedrooms were very warm. Also listed there was a tv in the bed room. It did not work as it was not hooked up to cable line.
For the price we paid per nite we were very disappointed. Others stated they hear from the owners when they arrived. We never heard from them. As a matter of fact we sent them twi messages when we arrived and they never responded.
It is unfortunate you had this issue, so thank you for the feed back and information on the a/c unit; it was installed three months ago and we were told it had the capability to cool the volume of the condo. We were up there a couple weeks later when the temp was in the mid 80s and the unit did struggle to keep up, but some like it cooler than others. Temperature in the mid 90s is unusual in that area, so we I can see it getting warm, also we have contacted the manufacturer for advisement on an upgrade. The t.v in the bedroom is hooked up to a c.d. player, but you are correct there is no cable in the room. I believe the listing states c.d. player and not cable in the bedroom, I have left new instructions on operating the c.d player. VRBO gives the owner an indication if we have a message and don't respond, I did review old messages to see if there was an attempt to contact myself or my wife. You did contact through VRBO indicating you arrived early, and shortly after, by the time I received the message you stated "it was o.k. you were eating at Shorts" did not see anything else in the VRBO message center. It is pertinent to answer any concerns as soon as possible so we list our phone numbers as contact if the renters have any questions, we feel it is very important to keep the communication open, never have had a renter complain about not communicating, so I would suggest calling your rental contact for future reference if there were any questions or concerns, because we do not always attend the email on Saturday evenings or Sunday mornings.
Thank you for staying,
Kevin and Poppy Blasch
This is our second time staying at the condo. It is very cozy, clean and had everything we needed during our stay. The condo was perfect for two couples. Very peaceful location, yet not too far of a drive to Bellaire or Alden. I will stay again!
It was a great place. Very clean and pleasant!
They provided eveything we needed. I was surprised what was all there, first time using VRBO. Kenny & Poppy were always there to help us out when needed. I would for sure pick to stay there again. Thank you Kenny & Popy for sharing your place!
More than I ever expected, even after reviewing what all was included!
What a positive experience it was for me renting this condo. I have never done a VRBO or AirBNB before so I was curious how it would turn out. I am thoroughly satisfied with everything!
The location was excellent. It was remote enough to be away from any city issues and close enough it was never a problem to jump in the car and hit a beach, or town, or Dollar general, or place to eat/shop. The condo and the property had great amenities available that were great to have around even though we didn't get to most of them. The decor was awesome and the babbling brook outside the window was AWESOME.
Because of a storm the previous evening before arriving, the cable/satelite was out and after I fumbled for a minute trying to figure out the buttons to push, I ended up sending a message to the owner for advise. Within a couple minutes I had a message back and a phone call to support it. Got the TV up in seconds and enjoyed the rest of the time there.
I would highly recommend this condo to anyone considering it and would encourage the owners to buy more property around the country/world so I can stay at more of your places in the future! You made everything perfect. My daughter and I were very very happy!
Great getaway place
Was clean and comfortable. Looked better than the pictures which was a nice surprise.
Was surprised by how well the condo was equipped with everything you could want. Bellaire is a wonderful place to spend vacations!!
