We recently returned from a six-week stay at this property and thoroughly enjoyed it. After some initial housekeeping and maintenance issues were resolved, we settled in to enjoy our stay in the Black Rock house and community.
To say that the house overlooks a golf course doesn’t do it justice. The view from the house is beautiful. Yes, it does overlook a golf course, but there are also acres of forest, rolling hills, and open fields. The Black Rock community is impeccably landscaped and has several beautiful water features. It is a gated community with 24X7 on-site security guards.
We took advantage of the Jacuzzi almost every night, enjoyed the fire pit on chilly evenings, and even used the indoor fireplace on a couple of rainy, cool September days.
We saw wildlife every day. At the house, we saw deer, owls and ospreys. In our travels around the lake, we saw moose, bear, fox and wild turkey.
We enjoyed swimming, boating, kayaking, biking and hiking. There are great golf courses in the area --- including the CdA Resort with its famous floating green. The downtown area (a scenic 20-minute drive away) has lots of nice shops, galleries, and restaurants. There’s also a well-maintained park and beach downtown.
All in all, we had a fantastic time. I highly recommend this home for a long or short term vacation rental.
