The Highlands

A Transformative Journey to 2030 and Beyond

The Highlands located in Harbor Springs, Michigan


The Transformation Has Begun

For decades, Boyne Highlands has been a special place where people enjoy the best moments of life. A setting we call home, with its own distinct charm and sense of place. Here we celebrate the four seasons of northern Michigan, enjoy the warmth of our Harbor Springs community, and welcome guests from far and wide. As we look to re-establish our place as the Grand Dame of four-season resorts in the Midwest, Boyne Highlands is transforming into The Highlands. We have mapped a transformation for the years to come, one we mean to achieve in the most sustainable way possible, through what we call the ForeverProject. 
The late, great founder of this story, Everett Kircher, once said, “You have to make improvements. Otherwise, you won’t make progress.”  So here we go, we’re building a better future, sharing every step as we go. Most of all, we’re making more room for the stories that will transform people’s lives forever. 



Our story started over 58 years ago, and in 2020 the next phase of our future began with the renovation of the Main Lodge guest rooms. We most recently finished updating over 80 guest rooms and bathrooms. Our journey continues and our featured projects are one of many transformations taking place around the resort.
