“Winter and Sumer fun destination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2008

We have stayed at Boyne Highlands resort several times in the winter to snowboard and in the summer to cycle and golf in the area.
The staff there is fantastic. They bend over backwards to please you and are very friendly. They definitely make you feel welcome.

The hill (550' vertical) is well maintained and there are 55 fun runs with night skiing most of the season. Krazy Daze in March (around St. Patrick's Day) is a fun activity filled weekend for families or party people.

In the summer time the golf courses (we golfed the Moors) are beautiful and well kept. We had a late tee off time which was quiet and peaceful. There are numerous back roads for road cycling as well. The famous "Tunnel of Trees" is a beautiful ride in the spring, summer and fall. There is a pool, putting course, tennis court, basketball, hike the hill, mountain bike... lots to do even if you don't golf.

The food at the resort is okay. It's not a cuisine oriented destination so don't expect fabulous dishes or great variety but they are good and generously portioned.

Will definitely return again and again.

  • Liked — Great service. Good sport facilities.

Just returned from a Weekend mini Trip to Boyne Highlands Resort. I cannot rave enough about the place. My family skiis extensively around the world, and this was by far the greatest family experience ever. The Skiing was wonderful, just rmember it is a little mountian, Only 550 ft vertical, but what makes the trip so wonderful are all the extras.
We booked the Gold package, new for this year. Included in this Are lodging, Meals, Lift tickets, and Adult beverages.. Yes that's right, a SKI resort that includes the liqour.
Let me run you through our trip. We booked the weekend Gold package, you check friday afternoon, and dinner friday night starts the package, then ski saturday, sunday and monday, being out of your room by monday at noonish.
Now here is how it unfolded. We checked in at Noon Firday, they had our room ready so up to unpack we went, I had misundersttod the package, and was disappointed that we couldn't ski friday as that had been our plan. The staff, said that they would geive us COMPLIMENTRY lift ticket starting at 4PM. That in itself would have been wonderful, but they did one better, as we weren't planning on skiing Monday they started our package right then and let us ski friday. As a side note the snow was wonderful, they have a phenominal capacity to make snow there, and with the natural snow they had, It was beautiful. Dinner was in main lodge dining room, the wait staff is incredible. If you are like me and think that service is dead in America, I implore you to try the Highlands. After Dinner a short a nap we headed down to the outdoor heated pool. You know the kind were you are are comfy and warm and snow is building on your hair. We were thinking this is wonderful, but a drink would be nice. As if they read or minds, out comes a waiter to the pool to ask if anyone would like somehting to drink. Unbelievable. Again Service. The breakfast buffet is outstanding, the next day skiing, at the top of on of the lifts, the lift operator has a box of chocolate kisses, with a note on the board, "Stop in for a chocolate Kiss" Nice fellow, Service again.. My sister had rented skiis, she was astounded at how quick and effeicient they were, She needed to exchange her boots, no problem, no hassle.. Service again. Although no one in our group took advantage of their ski school, just watching their instructors work with the children was refreshing and enjoyable.
Check out was quick and efficent and the real kicker, it was even cheaper when we checked out than we had expected!!!
If you are looking for a place to take the family skiing, look no further than Boyne HIghlands, skiing isn't cheap, take it from a long time skiing family, but the value recieved at Boyne Highlands, had me smiling even when I paid the bill. You Children will thank you for years to come from growning up vacationing at Boyne.

Came up with the kids for a ski weekend and loved it. The kids loved the ski school. It had them up and running right past mom and dad in two days.
Went back in the summer for golf. there is a ton of great golf- like an up-north Pinehurst.
