Boyne Mountain Resort

Boyne Mountain Resort’s winter activities offer an entire menu for outdoor fun for those visiting Michigan’s UP. Along with that, when you move inside you’ll find the indoor water park offers a nice respite from the cold, and a visit to the spa is a perfect way to melt away those sore muscles earned on the slopes.

The centerpiece of the Boyne Mountain Resort is the Mountain Grand Lodge and spa. The Swiss/Austrian-inspired d├ęcor offers a perfect backdrop for a vacation in a luxurious winter wonderland. While you’ll find plenty of outdoor activities to keep you busy, the Solace Spa and Avalanche Bay indoor water park offer opportunities to stay indoors that you’ll never forget.
