Expert and beginners are equally delighted as Boyne Mountain can accommodate your needs. Lessons and rentals are available for all ages at the main lodge along with child care, restaurants, a shared hot tub, and heated pool. If you still want more, head up to Boyne Highlands or Nub’s Nob for the day and take in their slopes. Tickets for the Mountain and the Highlands are interchangeable.

About Shari Thakady

We Purchased these units to enjoy with our family and friends. We have enjoyed them so much that we wanted to share all Boyne has to offer with others as well.

Why Shari Thakady chose Northern Michigan

We chose these particular units due to their location to the slopes and the main village, as well as, all Boyne Resort has to offer all year round.

What makes this condo unique

Located just a short walk from the Boyneland Run, these offer ideal Ski-In/Ski-Out access in the winter, and the only part of the mountain to offer night skiing.

Unlike most all other condos, we have enclosed the lofts making for private bedrooms. In doing so, it thereby offers privacy for people staying there and the ability for others to use the living area to visit or watch TV without disturbing others!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time while vacationing at your condo. We have stayed at many of the units in the Disciple Ridge complex and yours is one of the nicest of all.

Easy Family Access to the Slopes

  • 5 of 5

This location was perfect for a long ski weekend getaway. Shari and Anil take thoughtful and meticulous care of the condo. The 2 bedroom unit was very clean, had a great layout for a moderate sized family, and was well stocked. Just a few steps to the Boyneland slope, it was no problem for children ages 6, 8 and 10. In fact, we were able to ski right into the condo. I would definitely utilize this location again in the future.

Wonderful Relaxing Time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Shari and Anil's property. I had looked all over the upper Peninsula and

right under the bridge for a place for my family and me to get away. Shari got back to me right away, stating the property I was interested in was booked. Then she told me about a second property she had just acquired.

This townhouse met and surpassed our expectations. We all had plenty of room to stretch out and relax.

Each morning we could go for a walk or ride our bikes. Every afternoon, we were able to have a free

ride up the mountain on the Hemlock chair lift (since we were staying on the Boyne Mountain property). We were close to all the places we were interested in going to, like Charlevoix, Boyne City, Mackinac Island, etc.

We also used the pools outside. There is also a 62 person hot tub available.

We were also able to use Kayaks for free on Deer Lake. We road our bikes up one side and coasted down and then did it again on the return trip. There are also 2 magnificent golf courses on property to play that come at a discount. Avalanche Bay Indoor Pool was a great place for my boys to go. We thought about going on the Zip lines, but they book up early. There was even a movie for the family on Saturday night.

The townhouse was very well stocked with all the items a person needs, i.e. dishes, pots, pans, garbage bags, dishwasher detergent, etc. It was nice having either a queen size bed for each of my 4 kids and a king

for my wife and me. Three bathrooms were great also!

Each of my family members stated that this was the most relaxing, refreshing vacation that we have had

only 4 1/2 hours away from where we live.

Thanks Shari and Anil for making your place available for us! My wife already wants to go back in the fall to see the colors.

Excellent ski weekend with 3 families!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful ski weekend at this condo. It was well appointed with everything you would need to have a perfect weekend. The condo is absolutely beautiful and huge! We rented the whole 5 bedroom and had more than enough room for our 3 families. We had 10 kids, ranging from 2-11 years of age, who had plenty of room to play and enjoy the skiing that Boyne has to offer. The adults were able to relax and cook all our meals in the kitchens...that's right plural....there are 2 beautiful kitchens when you rent the full condo. It gave us plenty of oven/stove space to cook for 16 people. Shari was wonderful to work with and the rental process was a smooth as it could be. As far as location, it was too far for the little ones to hike to the slopes in their ski boots, but the shuttle was there promptly after a quick phone call. As an adult, I didn't find the walk to be too bad. I highly recommend this fabulous condo and look forward to future stays. Thanks!

35th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

The place was absolutely beautiful . Instantly when we all walked in the place felt very warm and what one would call a home like feeling. The space was excellent for 17 adults to sleep comfortably yet still have areas in the condo to relax without feeling on top of one another. It was an amazing location just steps away from Boyne Mountain Ski resort which made this Ski/Snowboarding trip convenient for those that were tired and done skiing for the day or if you wanted to head back to eat a quick lunch in-between the slopes. We loved all the bathrooms and showers that were available in the condo nobody ever had to wait to use. A bonus was the cabin even had board games available and u didn't have to worry about packing towels pillows or even extra blankets the house was fully stocked with the necessities to use. Best part every bed was super comfortable it was hard to get everyone out of it each day!!! I would recommend this place to anyone and we are very excited to come back again very soon!

Three Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I planned a family gathering as busy schedules prevented us from our usual get together for a traditional Christmas with our adult children, their spouses and our two little grand children. With some family members living in the Lansing area and others in the western end of the Upper Peninsula, we selected Boyne Mountain, Disciples Ridge as a good location to meet. I found this upper unit on the VRBO site and contacted the owners for more details. They were extremely helpful and explained in detail the additional amenities that were included such as toys for the kids and lots of games for the grownups as well as activities we could do during our stay at Boyne. The owners were fantastic to deal with and everything was just as they indicated. We showed up before check in time but everything was ready for us and the place was perfect for our family gathering. We truly enjoyed the ability to all be together in the same unit which was larger than we anticipated. We were all pleased to find that the unit was in excellent condition and very clean and the kitchen stocked with items that we had forgotten to bring on our own. My son and daughter-in-law used the upper bed room and private bath with their little ones and it worked well as they were able to put the children to bed where it was more quite while the rest of us played games and visited. Our daughter and son-in law used a large bedroom on the main level. We stayed in the master bedroom suite which was much larger than I expected with patio doors looking out onto the deck. The gas fireplace in the living room was also a nice addition. It was nice to have HD TV’s in every room and the reception was perfect although we didn't really spend much time watching them as there is so much to see and do. We spent most of Saturday at the water park which was a huge hit with the children as well as the adults. Some family members took advantage of the night skiing and the rest were able to catch a ride on the horse drawn sleigh. I guess the only drawback was that we should have spent more time at Boyne as there just wasn't enough time to get everything in. This is a great place to stay and we highly recommend it. The resort is beautiful and would be a wonderful spot to vacation in any of the four seasons.

Owner's Response: John - We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. The comments in your review describe the very reason we purchased our homes at Boyne and why we chose to rent them to others. We too have an extended family and it can be tough to plan get togethers. Once we started using Boyne for our family gatherings we thought it would be wonderful to help others build lasting family memories in this busy world we live in. We hope to have you back again sometime.

Fantastic Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at this condo. We would definitely recommend it and hope to return again. The kitchen was fully stocked and had everything we needed to make 2 complete family dinners. We even cooked a turkey! The towels, linens, and bedding were super comfy. And the teenagers really appreciated the internet connected TVs in every bedroom! Shari and Anil were extremely easy to work with and our deposit was returned right away. We were able to walk out one block and ski back to the condo door. The water park and lodge hot tub were a great end to our day of skiing. Thanks for a wonderful family vacation!
