About Sharon Black

I am blessed to be able to live and work in beautiful Benzie County. I have owned and operated a vacation home on the Betsie River for over 16 years and recently purchased this home in Beulah. I strive for perfection in my business (Coldwell Banker realtor) and my rentals you will find clean, comfortable and relaxing.

I am proud of my involvement in the local chamber of commerce and enjoy the civic awareness which results from my association in Zonta International.

Needless to say my church affiliation provides the basis & support of my personal & professional life.

Sharon Black purchased this cottage in 2009

My daughters and I travel to Beulah every summer. We had the fortune of renting this cottage. It had everything we could possibly need to have a completely relaxing vacation. The girls even had their own rooms! We made dinner every night and had breakfast every morning and there wasn't one thing that was missing from the kitchen, there is even a grill on the deck! We were only a couple blocks over from the water and can walk over to see the sunset every night, however you can see it from the windows of the cottage too. The only downside is there was road construction on the main road which runs behind a nice hedgerow in the back so the noise was very high. But Sharon was wonderful as is the cottage. We were too late to book it this year and all us ladies are sad to not be heading back this year!

delightful home away from home

We loved our week in the cottage. The kitchen was well stocked with paper goods, etc; dishes, pans,

spices. The rooms were lovely, clean and comfortable. The grill was used several times, as were the outside chairs. We could walk to town and beach and library. I would recommend this property. It was easy to travel to the sand dunes, Frankfort, Elberta (trick dog cafe) and Glen Arbor. Beulah has everything one needs and good restaurants.
