About Kent and Theresa Newbright
My wife Theresa and I were introduced to Black Lake 18 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 find these wonderful cottages that we can not only use when travelling to the lake with family and friends, but that we can share with other families 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 Onaway
We are an ideal place for families to gather. The separate cottages allow everyone to enjoy being together, yet still have their own space when it's time for a quiet nap. 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. 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.

Great vacation spot for a large group.
There were 14 of us, 9 adults and 5 children. There was plenty of room for all of us. The children loved the water and having a raft for them to jump off of was a lot of fun for them. The kids also spent a lot of time in the sandbox. We rented the pontoon and really enjoyed driving around the lake. We took the kids fishing a couple of times and they had fun catching some fish, although they were too small to keep. The fire pits were fun to sit around in the evening and make s’mores. We did a few day trips away from the cottages and enjoyed them. Theresa and Kent are wonderful people to rent from. When we called them about a couple of things, they responded immediately. We would definitely rent from them again.

Very clean. Lots of places to sleep.
We had a group of 13 adults and 7 children. There was ample room for everyone to sleep with beds, futons, and fold out couches. The yard was well maintained and there was lots of place for the kids to play. The sandbox was very nice for the kids as well. The older kids liked the paddle boat and the kayaks. All the kids enjoyed jumping off the floating dock. We love Black Lake and the fact that is clean and shallow for the kids. We will definitely consider renting again when we return.
Not fancy, but definitely fun!
We really enjoyed our stay here. There was so much to do between several boats, swimming, hot tub, camp fires, relaxing on the swings or in the hammocks. This is a great spot if you are looking to take a break from stress. A couple of things to note is, there are only two bathrooms ( no bathtub on property) between all the cabins and there is no washer/dryer.
This is a great relaxing place
These cottages and bunk house were awesome. We had everything we needed. The outdoor space was a great place to relax and enjoy the sun or shade. The lake stayed shallow so it made it great to play Frisbee or water ping pong. The kayaks and paddle boat were great. Plenty of chairs for sitting around the fire pit. It was great to have s'mores and hot dogs over the fire. Plenty of space for the group we had there. We only had one night that the weather drove us inside.
Grab your cup of coffee and a chair and enjoy it on the dock. Sunrises are awesome.
Kent and Theresa are awesome host. Thanks for the chance to spend a relaxing week in your cabins. Will come back if I get the chance.
We wanted relaxation and we were not disappointed.
Thanks, guys! We thing Black Lake is a pretty special place. We are so glad your family enjoyed our little slice of heaven. 😊
Everything we needed was on hand and available for use. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. The sun rises were majestic. The hot tub was relaxing and the view is great.
Thanks for everything.
