The little place is in a beautiful setting. The new owners are working hard to update and improve. If you are looking for a reasonably priced spot this is it for an extended stay. New beds and clean. Not luxury...but has the basics. The area has so much to do, with Petosky and Gaylord just a half hour away...and there...

This motel is a good place to stay if you are on budget but want to get away for the weekend. The view is GREAT!!! They could do a little updating, but the rooms are nice. My only complaint would be the air conditioner. Our room was FREEZING, when we asked for assistance figuring out how to turn it off...

Their Wireless Internet has a very poor signal and wasn't configured for Macs The toilets have a high pitch whine upon flushing which was extremely loud The room has grossly inadequate electrical outlets which are extremely hard to access I found a long brown hair on my pillow...

We had the pleasure of staying a week at the Brown Trout in the three bedroom unit. It was clean and comfy. We were a party of four with a possibility of six, hence the three rooms. The bedrooms were of good size for a week stay and the bathroom is of average size for an older hotel, it was...

This motel and another just 100 yards away (Boyne Falls Inn) are managed (and owned?) by a nice couple living close by. The rooms we occupied were at the Boyne Falls Inn. There was a large refrigerator in both rooms, with a community kitchen down the hall. The Brown Trout rooms each have their own micro, fridge and coffie maker,...

Boyne mountain is less than 2 miles from this gem. The knotty pine rooms feel like up north should. I have a microwave, coffee and maker and a refridgerator. Everything I need to save $$ and pack my food daily to grill out on the slopes at one of the warming huts. My favorite thing is check in is quick...

We decided to stay at The Brown Trout/Boyne Falls because it is right next to the mountain. Did some skiing and had a great time. It was nice to come back to such a great place.... loved the main halls with tables to drink your morning cup of coffee, while taking in the views. Also, the community kitchen was awesome!!!...

We stayed at the Brown Trout Motel at the end of February. It was a beautiful weekend and from our room we could see Boyne Mountain and the skiers coming down the mountain. The owners, Laura and Gary, are very knowledgeable of the area and were very helpful when it came to restaurants and shopping. We have stayed at the...

Susan Bergamo, Farmington Hills MI 9/21/07 Stayed in a room on the back side of the motel and what a view! You can see Boyne mountain, a big pond, which have ducks and even a few swans, and big beautiful trees. Sitting outside Saturday afternoon was so peaceful. You don't even need to drive anywhere once you get there. There...
