“Beautiful Resort and Surroundings”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

We were debating Great Wolf Lodge and Boyne Mountain Resort for a fun family overnight the third weekend of September. We ended up in Boyne because the cost was about the same and we'd been to GWL before. The waterpark at Boyne was far superior, and the room was nicer too.

We made the right choice and had a great time. I had read quite a few reviews before booking and decided to book a room in the main lodge since it seemed to be the newest and most up-to-date part of the resort. We had a huge room (301) with a full bathroom, living room with fireplace and bar (microwave, fridge, bar sink, counter, dishes, silverware) and sofa sleeper, and a loft with 2 queen beds, and another full bathroom upstairs. It was great that the kids had their own TV in the loft.

I thought that we really should have stayed two nights (though the cost would have been prohibitive) or arrived a few hours earlier to have time to hike. Check in was late (5pm), though our room was ready when we got there at 4:15. The girls wanted to go to the waterpark right away, so we went for an hour or so before we were so hungry we had to get out and get some food. We detoured for a ride up the ski lift and a hike back to the bottom, which was lovely. We ate at the restaurant in the clock tower building. It was a bar, and had bar-like quality food. We had pizza (mediocre), a couple of grinders (pretty good), and a Greek salad. That had at least a cup of feta on it! We stopped for ice cream after dinner in the little shop right there in the resort "village". There was a guy juggling in the square when we were on our way to dinner, which was neat.

After dinner, we sat in the lobby enjoying the fire for a while, and headed up to our room. It was very quiet -- I didn't hear a single footfall from the hallway, and I am a LIGHT sleeper. In the morning, we ate the breakfast buffet at Everett's, which was okay, but nothing great. The fruit was plentiful and good, but the rest was "eh". It was costly for the quality. Next time I'd know to bring food for breakfast, since the fridge in the room is decent sized, and there's a microwave and coffee maker. We split up after breakfast, with half of us hiking up the ski hill to the paths at the top, and the other half going to the waterpark. Hiking was great, and we finally left the resort at noon.

The staff was very friendly. The early fall is apparently a GREAT time to go, since the resort seemed very empty. There were NO lines in the waterpark for anything, and we didn't see another soul out hiking.

Stayed here with friends for a golf weekend. The room looked like it has been refurbished recently. Bed were good and room was clean. The problem was no heat. Temperature was in the 40s. At 9:15pm called and asked for maintenance man because no heat and we were freezing. At after 10:00 and third call got the manager on duty and was forceful. The maintenance man showed and advised he turned on heat in building. Why at 10:00 at night did we have to call for heat with cold weather in 40s? This was the 5th year in a row we stayed at Boyne for golf. Will look at other resorts for next year.

We just stayed at the Grand Mountain Lodge for a conference. The hotel staff is friendly and the room was clean enough but looked a bit dated. The pool area and hot tub area were good. When visiting during the week in the early Fall there isn't a lot of shopping or dining available on property. I bet for snow skiing it would be the perfect place to stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony!

In town for a conference and staying the night at the Grand Mountain Lodge. I haven't been here in a few years but the rooms are in excellent condition, clean and the service is great and there are plenty of staff around to answer any question you might have. Haven't met one yet who is in a bad mood and each so far has initiated conversation with me as I passed.

The grounds look great at this time of year and the facilities are very good for conference size such as ours. Rooms are fairly pricey, in my opinion, but they are spacious and well adorned.

Give it a try and see how you like it!

Excellent accomadations! A little pricey but worth it. Rooms are beautiful, views are even better, Golf is better yet. Food is awsome! Very relaxing place to visit. The village is put together in a way that reminds you of a Bavarian village somewhere in the Alps. The private beach is well taken care of, and the staffs very attentive to any of your needs or concerns. The golf is some of the best I've plaed on, bent grass greens and fairways, beautiful vistas from many of the mountain side tees and greens.

The pro-shop/golf courses have nothing to do with the rest of the resort. Rescheduled t times, with Ill-informative pro shop employee Emma. When questions were asked, we were responded to with "o-well here's your money back" mentality. No help. Went to hotel front desk and they couldn't help, no manager on site to make an informed decision. We went off grounds to spend our money on Golf.

We had a wonderful time at this resort. There's plenty for the whole family to do. We stayed in the Edelwiss property, and it was exactly as advertised. It was not a 5 star, but is perfectly fine if you are looking for a place to sleep for the night. Having read some of the other comments, I was a bit leery about this place, but it was great. Yes, the building is older and outdated, but if you know that when booking, I don't think you'll be disappointed. We were hardly in the room, except to sleep, and my rule is always, "is it clean and safe?", and if that answer is yes, then it suits me just fine. It suited us great! The staff here are awesome and my kids loved the variety of activities to do. We went to Avalanche Bay (awesome!), the Deer Lake Beach (gorgeous and very accommodating staff), Chairlift Ride (cool!), and Ziplining (so fun!). We were very surprised how economical it all was, and how much was included for the price we paid. If you are looking for a great 3 star place to take the family, you've found it. If you're looking for 5 star, you can still go to this great resort, just pick one of the more expensive hotels and you won't be disappointed! Thanks Boyne Mountain!
