Big changes are happening in Harbor Springs, MI.

Michiganders are very familiar with the Boyne name as most of us have taken a vacation to one of the resorts. Now, what we all know as Boyne Highlands will be going through a big change and will be known now as The Highlands at Harbor Springs. The resort's leadership team is rebranding and has plans to make The Highlands at Harbor Springs a premier, four-season resort for the Midwest by 2030.

As The Highlands at Harbor Springs moves into the future, the resort will be guided by five pillars including distinction in hospitality, an environment of wellbeing, four-season innovation, community partnership, and a sustainable focus.
