About Kent and Theresa Newbright

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

Why Kent and Theresa Newbright chose Black Lake

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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, outdoor hot tub in a screened-in gazebo. This property is perfect for youth groups, family reunions, or a girls' or guys' getaway.

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.

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!!

Great place, great owners!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed for two nights with three friends. Since we were a small group, Kent graciously rented a single unit to us for a very reasonable price. We stayed in the "Cayman Island" cottage. The decor was kind of a wacky hodgepodge, but it was delightful! There's a jacuzzi that's really kind of in the living room! While the interior of the cottage was compact, it was a fine space for four people. The beds were comfy, the kitchen had everything we needed. But the best thing about this place is the exterior. The waterfront area is beautiful, and it's mere steps from the back door to the lake. They have kayaks, canoes, a pontoon, and plenty of outdoor seating right on the lakefront. We also loved the hot tub and the fire pit. Overall, a very delightful place to stay!

Relaxation and Family Fun

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed in Aug 2014 for a week. We rented both cottages and great time. The cottages are older but clean and provide a relaxing setting for family fun. We used the outdoor hot tub daily which was nice as the weather was a little cool while we were there. We also enjoyed a day trip to Mackinaw Island..

Perfect family getaway on beautiful Black lake!

  • 4 of 5
The owners are very friendly and helpful! Great spot for family getaways. The three cabins provide plenty of space for everyone and the view of lake is spectacular. Our family enjoyed a great week of fishing, water-skiing and cozy campfires. Everyone loved the hot tub! Nothing better than watching the sun go down each night on beautiful Black Lake.

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
