Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of adults enjoy this property this weekend and had a blast, Owners were very commodating to there guest to make sure they achieve the best stay possible. The water is about 1 1/2 to 3 ft deep for a good city block, all sand bottomed, perfect waters for kayaking or motor boating just be prepared to anchor your boat out a few feet beyond the dock if it's a larger inbound outboard, because of the shallower waters, we enjoyed the strong presence of the northern lights on the first night. 211 bar/grill (awesome food) & gas station is about 2 mins away

A perfect location for recreation AND relaxation!

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time visiting this cabin on Black Lake! We have been so pleased with the property and the owners, Jerry and Kathy. Given the old motel set up we are able to rent the main house and multiple rooms to bring friends and family along for the fun. Here are some specifics.

Beach and Waterfront: A good size, sandy and shallow, great for little ones.

Firepit: Located right by the water.The Adirondack chairs were a little uncomfortable so consider bringing bag chairs. Wood is available for purchase near by.

Yard: Very big. Great for yard games and sports.

Boat recreation and Fishing: We bring our fishing boat and utilize the boat hoist. There is a table to clean the walleye and pike that are caught. We also were able to take out the row boats a few times. Pretty fun for the kids.

The description is spot on as far and the property was well-maintained as we are concerned. We will continue to book our vacations at this gem on Black Lake!

We loved our vacation here on black lake. The cottages and adjoining rooms worked out perfect for our family of 12. It is very well maintained and exceptionally clean. Jerry and Kathy are wonderful people and very willing to help with anything possible!! I will definately be returning in 2017 which can't come soon enough!!

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Great family vacation spot . The property was beautiful and extremely well cared for very clean. It had everything you could want or need . Fantastic outdoor space included a fire pit barbecue picnic tables chairs plenty of room for everyone to get around comfortably . Main part of the house was large enough for everyone to eat meals inside Also you had your own separate bedrooms which gave you your own private space . The owners Jerry and Kathy were very gracious host and available if there was something needed. I will definitely be looking at this property to rent again in 2017

Perfect rental for our family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

This rental was perfect for our family, 6 adults and 2 toddlers. The main house was big enough for all of us to gather for meals and some tv time. With 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms we all had our own private space. Black Lake is beautiful and the sandy beach was great for the kids. There is a large grassy yard for space to play and a nice fire pit. Kathy and Jerry were the perfect hosts and we would definitely rent from them again.

Great Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This rental provided a great vacation for our family. 7 adults and 1 child fit perfectly. There is a HUGE yard. Plenty of room for bocce ball, ladder golf and bags (at the same time!). The beach is nice, and the lake is sandy. It is located adjacent to the state park with volleyball and trails for hiking. We brought our fishing boat, and there is a boat hoist with a dock that worked perfect. Lots of outdoor seating and parking, Weber charcoal grill provided. Very nice fire pit large enough for the whole family to sit around. We hiked thru the park and collected FREE firewood. Free wi-fi provided. 45 minute drive to the Mackinac Bridge, 30 minutes from Cheboygan. The nearest town is 5 miles away and there is a grocery store and an outdoors store with anything you may have forgotten. The owners were very friendly and the property was clean. Perfect spot for a family vacation!
