Guestbook comments from the manager
What a beautiful winter week we spent with family. We snuggled by the stone fireplace with the white birch logs and 6 hrs logs you provided, thanks. Enjoyed ice skating and had a peaceful holiday. Thanks again for allowing the outdoor Hot tub to be on for this week. We drained it. Everything was cozy love the Wool Baffle on the beds.

My wife Theresa and I were introduced to Black Lake 14 years ago. We fell in love on the first day there and decided that when the time was right we would own property on the lake. We were fortunate enough to come across these wonderful cottages that we can not only use when travelling to the lake with family and friends, but that we can share with others so that they can enjoy the lake as much as we do.

Kent and Theresa Newbright purchased this cottage in 2014

This is the best side of the lake in summer. The wind generally comes out of the west and we have a hill protecting us. It is typically calm here and wavy on the east side when the wind picks up. It can change and go the other way but we are the best most of the time. Walk out over 300 feet with a gradual depth increase over hard packed sand. This gradual increase is great for kids.

We have a hot tub for 4 if you're getting cold or want to have some time away from the kids and just relax. We are on a quiet safe side street, not the main road (Black River Rd.). You are close to everything; walk up the hill and across the road and there is a restaurant, the state ORV Trails, and sand hills. No need to go anywhere else! We have it all right here: fireplace, cable tv, indoor 2 person tubs, outdoor hot tub in a screened-in gazebo. This property is perfect for youth groups, family reunions, or a girls' or guys' getaway.

DEFINITELY WOULD RECOMMEND!

  • 5 of 5
We booked with Debbie for Labor Day Weekend and it was the perfect end to the summer! At first we were skeptical, never having booked a cabin before, we weren't sure what to expect. Would the place be clean, run down, as described,etc. Well this exceeded any expectations we had or could have hoped for! The cabin was exactly as described, beds were comfortable, interior was clean and well taken care of. There were even more amenities than we thought! The outside Spa was wonderful, the lake was gorgeous and you are so close to everything that 4 days was not enough time. I would recommend working with these owner as they are honest, easy to work with and they work hard to ensure you and your family has an enjoyable stay! We will be repeat customers that is for sure!

Thank you Debbie for making the end to our summer a wonderful experience -we will probably see you again this fall and definitely again in the summer!!

AWESOME 2 WEEK STAY. WE STAYED AUG 17 TO THE 31

  • 5 of 5
Once again our church group had a great time we spent lot of time on the Pontoon and we took girls to the state park waterfall I think it is Ocquoac falls. They really enjoyed it. We had a great time playing on the lake and smores by the fire. Your flowers were beautiful and the Hot Tub was a fun place for the few adults to feel we had our own space and could get away for a while. Glad we had 2 kitchens. Weather was good and we will book again next year in May or June thanks. L. Martin Fellowship Church

GREAT TIME FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
We caught awesome fish. Had family in from all over the country and had a great time. Lake was calm most of the time and we swam and played on the raft. We thought we would go to a lot of sights in the area but everyone wanted to just stay at the cottages. We really enjoyed and thanks for the restaurant info we enjoyed taking the boat to the bluffs restaurant and climbed the hill The view was worth it overlooking the lake we ate in the trees overlooking the lake on the deck . Had a great time and we are booking for next year a week later.
Thanks
The Decker, and Mortons

A LITTLE CHILLY BUT THE FISHING WAS GOOD

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 2 weeks first was chilly and windy but the fishing was great.
The marina was shut down but the Bluffs Restaurant on the lake was under new ownership and really nice. We enjoyed our coffee on the swing and actually used the fireplace a few times. It finally warmed up 2nd week and we were able to play in the water. This is our third time here and we had Christmas in June with our family .

GREAT PLACE FOR OUR GROUP OF 12 VERY HAPPY

  • 5 of 5
We just left and had the family vacation we aspired too.
I booked this to get my grandchildren all in the same area before school and business started. We loved the water it was rippling and shallow enough for smaller kids to play. The houses are cute and we were pleased with the variety of spices and cookware as we have rented where they had only a fry pan last year. The hot tub was the little ones favorite when they were cold and the adults enjoyed it late at night. After everyone went to bed all the adults sat in it and talked to 2 am. It was so peaceful and we felt like we were the only ones in the area as the neighbor houses were vacant.
We would highly recommend this location and have booked for the 4th of July week next year. i read a complant in their book and was surprised evidently they have never rented a place before. This place was clean and had the proper amendities that we enjoy. The Pontoon was an added pleasure and we will book it for the complete week next year. The kids enjoyed Kayaking down the river a few times in the morning and got lost so I recommend a GPS. Thanks and we will see you next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your respond and I am glad that you have already sent in for next year as we fill up fast. I very much appreciate you responding to the negative add as you can see it was incorrect location. I guess I will never send people to friends homes on the lake.My friend said he had trouble with his hot tub but they took care of it that day, and that the renters thought they were at the Hilton not a cottage. We do our best and it shows with a great repeat business.
Thanks again I look forward to having you back.
Thanks

AWSOME FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at our yearly family reunion. The place we have stayed at on the lake sold last year, so we were scrambling. Your cottage was great the property has the 2 cottages and the log cabin on it. I thought the kids would stay in the cabin but Mom said it reminded her of her youth and her and dad love it and the smell of the wood. It was great for us to have 2 different cable TV's one for Cartoons and the other for Fox News. The fish were bitting we caught pike and bass. The waterfront was just what you said rippling hard pack and the small seawall step was fine to the sand for the kids, you dont need to take it out. We had an hour storm and the waves got a little rough. But the weather was perfect most of the time 82 degrees. Kids really love the Pontoon during the day and they played king of the floating raft. The hot tub was great in the evening and we had a hard time pulling their wrinkled bodies out of it. I appreciate you allowing us to use the 3 person tube and we put it in the Log Cabin loft. We are definately booking first week in Sept again next year and this will be our new location for our 3 families. Thanks so much.
