Awesome work retreat!
We booked this property for a work retreat for our employees. Great amenities and access to the lake. We had a fabulous time! Our only complaint (which isn't a big one-just a heads up for others) is that the property lists that it sleeps 25 people but there are only enough beds for 18. The remaining 7 people have to sleep on air mattresses in the living room. Overall we had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the property and our employees are begging to come back next year!
A great family vacation home.
The property was beautiful and very well maintained. The spacious lodge home provided many special places for family to enjoy. The lake shore setting and water equipment offered great recreation time. Enjoyed by all!
Great Northern MN Location for Large Group
We had a great long weekend at Blackwater. The property has a lot more on site than is listed on the page (camping chairs, floaties, firewood). There was plenty of space for our large group, we didn't have to leave the property except for a couple of quick grocery runs.
Beyond our highest expectations.. PERFECT!
Our time at Blackwater Lodge exceeded our highest expectations! This anything but a "cabin"!!! It had everything and more than we expected! We were vacationing with a total of 3 families. Each family had 2 children so combined we had 6 adults and 6 children. We had more space than we ever imagined. We were all able to find the perfect balance between family time, adult time and some quiet alone time!
The property was immaculate and very well maintained. It was well stocked with everything we needed and then many things we didn't expect but sure enjoyed! We had a cloudy day so the kids were able to utilize the movie theater (stocked with a wide variety of movies) and the X box complete with games! The adults were able to relax and play cards in the wine cellar!
Accessing the lake is easy....and it is also easy to watch the kids from the deck! We all loved the water trampoline!!! It was truly the perfect place for a vacation! Everything was easy from the original reservation process to already re-booking our stay for summer 2015!
Best family reunion ever!
Our family of 25, spent the most fabulous week at your beautiful home. Ages ranged from 17 to 80 and everyone had a blast. We waterskied, inner tubed, kyaked, swam, golfed, played tennis, cards, badminton, soccer, watched the World Cup on your big screen TV, the list was endless. It was just like summer camp!
The house was spectacular. The pictures on the website hardly do it justice. The gathering spaces on the main level were large and beautiful. There were also cozy spots to curl up with a book. The lake front is so well-kept and all the equipment was running perfectly. The yard was large enough for bocce ball, soccer, and badminton. The deck was a great place for coffee in the morning. The local area made going for a walk or run a joy.
We slept 19 in beds and another 6 on air mattresses quite comfortably . The kitchen was well equipped and spacious enough for several cooks. Plenty of chairs and tables to seat all of us for dinner. We really appreciated that the house was stocked with soap and toilet paper in all the bathrooms and dish towels, etc. We felt very welcomed.
The gas station is only a mile away and the store there was well stocked. The grocery store in Longville had everything we needed. We golfed three different courses nearby and loved them all. The tennis courts in Longville are a bit rustic but we enjoyed them, too.
All in all the place far exceeded our very high expectations. We're going to rent it again for our next reunion!
Absolutely wonderful place with so much to do. We would go back in a heartbeat.
Staying at the Blackwater Lodge we had one of our best weeks as a family. We had around 20 people at the lodge and we never felt cramped. There is plenty of room, sleeping space and so much to do. The fishing is excellent, swimming, jet skiing and tubing were all incredible. At night, we played games, watched movies (in the theater room) and just visited. We didn't leave the lodge all week. We absolutely loved every second of the week.
Blackwater Lake is crystal clear freshwater lake located 1 hour North of Brainerd, MN. The Large log cabin is surrounded by 30 Acres of woods including 100 year old white pines right up to the water front on a dead end gravel road. One mile south of the 5500 Acre Woman Lake chain of Lakes Blackwater is a quiet lake built for families to have privacy and enjoy the lake activities without crowds. Waterskiing, swimming and nightly campfires are here to discover in the summer.
