Wonderful UpNorth Experience
If you enjoy a comfortable, clean fully equipped home on an exquisite lakefront location I recommend Sunset View. The owner has provided everything you need to enjoy the peace and tranquility of Black Lake. They even put their boat lift in the water ready to receive my boat. Black Lake is warm and clean Chairs for lakefront sunsets, firepit for S'mores, dogs, taters and corn, Weber gas grill and charcoal too. . At the end of a very private road so safe for children to run about. And if you need to run for an emergency pizza or supplies, the 211 is minutes away. Lots of farmstands and the WalMart is not so far. We WILL be back. Thanks Ken.
Our disappointment at Sunset View
If you are interested in coming in close contact with insects/bugs this is your place to be. I had to clean the bathroom from bugs before we could use it. I also had to remove the bugs next to the futon mattresses in the sitting area and the screened in porch (second bedroom)before we could add our sheets to the beds. I had to constantly clean up bugs through out the week. I advise you to not use the fan in the kitchen, the bugs went flying there too. I suggest you take a photo of every room in the house so that at the end of the week you can put everything back in it's place. I left the blankets out for the house cleaner to wash them after our use. Don't leave them out. $40 of our deposit was kept by the owner. You need to leave at 10 AM on the move out day. I suggest you bring your own towels. I washed the towels we used that morning and place them in the dryer. I did not have time to fold them and put them away. Yes, I guess I should of gotten up at 5 AM to get it all done in time. If you are a cook like me, this house does not have much counter space. Warning...don't move anything unless you put it back in the same way. I couldn't use the grill to make pancakes because of the cob webs on the base of the grill. There is one double bed in the bedroom that could sleep one adult. I, an adult, slept on the futon in the kitchen area. Futons are made for kids under 12 to sleep on. I could not get a good nights sleep, the board was in the middle of my back. There are two futons in the porch area. Only one of the futons could be open at a time. My daughter opened her futon. She didn't want to sleep with her brother, so her brother had to sleep on unopen futon. The stats for this house states that it sleeps 6. It might sleep 6, if they are all under 6 years old. The bedroom is a double bed, futon in kitchen area is for one person. The futon in the porch might sleep two persons if they like sleeping close to each other. Very uncomfortable. The one kid on an unopen futon. Warning, put garbage sticker on the can not the bags. If you use too many stickers, the owner will keep part of your deposit. If you want to enjoy T.V. or play movies at the house, make sure you get clear instructions. We had two teenagers and one professional engineer in our group and they could not figure it out. The house does have cute furnishings, a good washer/dryer and a canoe that we did enjoy. Suggest bring own kitchen utensils and towels. No beach area.
Michelle from Plymouth
We enjoyed our stay at Black Lake. The owner was awesome in making sure the row boat would be there for my husband to use, which he did often. The cabin was well stocked. Town was close enough to run to if needed. Neighbors were really nice. We had plenty of room and having a bath and a 1/2 is just perfect. My only suggestion would be to bring a pair of water shoes, which I was able to purchase in town. The bottom of the lake is rocky and having the shoes help with walking out to deeper water. It was a very peaceful and relaxing vacation.
sleep like a baby
We had no sleepless nights. The cottage is tucked away in a wooded area with no highway or traffic noises. As hot as it was, the cottage was very comfortable with the windows open and the cool breeze coming off the lake. The only problem we had was, saying good bye.
Ken the owner, was a very friendly person to do business with.
Sunset View Cabin
Despite the unseasonably hot weather, our stay was good. It could have been better if the washer hadn't quit on the third day and if the shower wouldn't fall off its holder hitting the bather. There was a vacumm available to keep the outside mess from accumulating too much inside. New updates in the kitchen and bathrooms are a bonus.
What a wonderful surprise!The cottage was so homey you could tell it was someone's personal summer cottage.The decorations were very nice "cottage and cabin" items that gave you a feeling that you were away from it all .Many things were updated and well cared for.Lovely sunsets and lots to do in the area!! Thanks for sharing your cottage with us.Would love to go again!!
