The Spa at Boyne Highlands

Also nearby the resort……

·         Odawa Casino (click for link) – The gaming is exceptional with nearly 1,500 slots, dozens of table games, and a poker room.  Located minutes from downtown Petoskey and within 15 miles of all three Boyne Resorts.

·         Shopping – Minutes from Petoskey and within close proximity to Boyne City, Charlevoix, and Harbor Springs, guests will discover a unique collection of boutiques, galleries and casual to fine dining venues among these picturesque waterfront towns.

·         Wineries & Breweries – Whether you are an aspiring wine connoisseur or just want to enjoy a beer with a friend, Northern Michigan has the variety of unique beverages you’ve been craving. It’s well-known that wine grapes grow in beautiful places. Most of Michigan’s quality wine grapes grow within 25 miles of Lake Michigan. Here, the “lake effect” protects the vines with snow in winter and moderates air temperatures to keep vines cool in summer and extend the growing season. If wine doesn’t strike your fancy, grab a cold one. With craft beers growing in popularity, breweries have been popping up all over Northern Michigan. From a Mighty “Mac” Imperial Porter to a Fudged Up Stout, you’ll find the names of beers at local microbreweries are as colorful as the places that craft them.

·         All winter activities

Do I need to ask anymore?  Lots of fun things going on in Michigan!
