Highlands is close to city of Petoskey and also basically across the street from Nub's. For the money, I'd stay in Petoskey where there should be enough casual dining and some night spots, and you can enjoy both Boyne Highlands and Nub's Nob. Boyne Mountain about 45 mins south, and not much going on in that vicinity outside of the small resort area (Gaylord 20 mins away is the nearest town, very affordable lodging there but not a lot of excitement).
Beat me to it. hah
With Nubs and Highlands across the street, it's crazy that I never tried Nubs out..but I suppose in hindsight, I'm not sure we were ever up there multiple days in a row last season. Long trips were at a premium last year, it was mostly day trips.
