Boyne Off Season Off Their Game
Posted Oct 15, 2016
I booked a room with Boyne Mountain based on a discount they offered in the off season. I was travelling alone, enjoying the Petoskey area in the My room was in another building that had no elevator and looked worse for wear. The room was barely big enough for a bed and bathroom. There were no obvious heat controls, but there was a box fan to use if you wanted to unplug something else in the room. The only positive thing about the stay was their Pasta Night in the main dining room. The wait staff and cook were very professional and attentive. All you can eat fresh pasta prepared with any sauce, veggies and meat or seafood you like. The price was very reasonable and was a glimpse into what Boyne could be in the right hands. Chances are, not being a skier, I won't be back. I also tried Sante, in Boyne Falls, for breakfast, based on reviews on Expedia. It was not worth the hype. If you have had true European food, their attempt falls short. The eggs were overcooked, the veggies were undercooked and calling it European didn't excuse the preparation issues. It was pricey, the staff was fine and the lake view was a plus.
