Well, the family and I headed up to Boyne Mountain for spring break this year. It wasn’t our first choice in vacation destinations, but we had just returned from a trip to Arizona a few weeks ago. So this was basically a “use it or lose it” vacation…plus we also wanted to get away with the kids during spring break. We had purchased a “sampler” package from Bluegreen resorts last year and it was going to expire in a couple months (this is worth a whole other blog post in itself).
Anyway, Bluegreen’s resort at Boyne Mountain was one of the only resorts within driving distance that had open availability. We’ve been talking about going to the Avalanche Bay indoor water park for quite some time now, so this seemed like a good opportunity, especially since the resort is only about a half mile away from Avalance Bay.
After checking in at the resort on Saturday afternoon, we headed directly to our room. We were presently surprised at the accommodations. We had a 2-bedroom unit with a fireplace, full kitchen, and a large jetted tub in the master bath – much better than a cramped hotel room. We hadn’t really planned any activities for this vacation besides the water park, so having some extra room to sprawl out and relax ending up being a huge plus.
My wife and I have never been skiing before, and being as the temperature was still in the 30’s and 40’s, that’s really what people come here for. The slopes were still snow covered and there were quite a few people out there. It looked like a lot of fun, I’d like to try it at least once. Maybe next time – assuming we are a little more prepared and bring some appropriate attire (it is supposed to be spring, right?).
