Private, spacious, clean and classy. Well-appointed kitchen, had all you need, close to Boyne skiing

  • 5 of 5

This little house was a very impressive place. You just notice when someone has done a quality job of establishing and maintaining a place like this. Anyting I needed, including some things I forgot to bring from home, we're already in place in the kitchen. Everything was very clean, comfortable bed, nicely decorated, and very convenient to get to the Boyne Ski Resort. The spring special at $100 a night was quite a bargain for such a nice place. Off the beaten path, I felt like I enjoyed some serious privacy too.

Great house for our family of 4. Close to Boyne Mountain, we enjoyed skiing and the waterpark. Love BC Pizza, very close. Small, but plenty of room for all of us! :)

Cozy, clean cottage home

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our recent stay at the Adams Hobby House! The home was the perfect size for our family of 5. Each of the kids had their own bed! The house was clean and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We really appreciated the firewood and had an awesome campfire one of the nights. The patio area was great and the string of lights provided a nice outdoor ambiance! We liked how the family room area was rearranged so the TV was viewable from the kitchen area. The sectional sofa sleeper and abundance of cozy blankets were a big plus. The location was great for us skiing at both Nubs Nob and Boyne. We were able to walk to the downtown area and feel this is a big plus for summer months. The grocery store was very close for a quick run. The entry area was roomy for all of our ski equipment; and we loved the 5 hooks for all of our coats and ski pants! The Hobby House is a lovely little cottage home that is perfect for a Northern Michigan get-away.

Clean and inviting.

  • 5 of 5

When my husband and I arrived the music, lights and fireplace was on. We felt right at home. Very nicely decorated and clean. Walking distance from downtown and Lake. It was perfect for us. Lindsey and Shannon make themselves available it you need something or have questions. Backyard was so cute I loved sitting and having my morning coffee. We will definitely be coming back for Winter we really loved staying in Boyne City it was very quaint and centrally located. Thank you for everything!😁?
