My husband and son both had the fried rice this past weekend. Chicken and Beef. They both said it was fantastic and hope it remains on the menu. I can’t wait to try it!!!

Fantastic. Our kids love to bike to beach house for ice cream!

Ordered the Szechaun Thistle fried rice with Chicken this past week for a take out. The flavors were phenomenal! I called the chef and complimented him on this meal. Delicious! Yum 😋

Love your place! Can’t wait to get back!

How about adventure camp this summer for the kids ??? I’ve been trying to call does anyone know if you guys are going to hold it this summer?

While I am not a skier any longer, I want to give you two thumbs up on the Winter Assurance Plan! Perfect solution. Way to go! I hope and pray that you have a very successful year.

Bought a pass. Love Boyne and appreciate the worry free winter assurance. Who knows what tomorrow will bring but I can tell you I can't wait to hit the slopes again. Thank you!

Getting close to the end of skiing for me. Gonna buy two gold's anyway, thanks for assurance. This will be # 40 for me

I tried adding the Boyne Highlands only pass with one child and it would not allow me to put the add on child to the cart. When can I just call to take care of this

Have you guys decided if the bike park is opening this year?

Hey Wesley hope all is well stay safe

Sarge and I had our most beautiful room there.

Lets go Skiing

I bought my family of 4 Highlands passes in March of this year before everything got crazy, do all of the above rules/assurances/discounts apply to us as well? Or just to people buying passes now?

Its a miracle that I am alive today. I encounter HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS (HSV1/2) for good four (4) years, six (6) months and twelve (12) day with my calculations, before I meet the great Dr. Abumere. I am Tina Richard from Fresno California, united state of America and I was affected with herpes virus.Herpes is a viral infection cause by the Herpes simplex virus, marked by painful, watery blister in the skin or mucous membrane or on the genitals. This was what I suffered for good four years. I have visited CVS Pharmacy in Fresno for treatment but no improvement. I meet Dr.Abumere online while I was searching for herpes cure I read a testimony about his work. I give a try that now becomes a testimony in my life. I contacted Dr.Abumere on Email: doctorabumere6@gmail.com or WhatsApp: +2349021975055
