Enjoy the entire INLAND WATERWAY from a nicely appointed cabin with 100 feet of frontage on the Black River.
You may dock your boat right on the Black River with access to 45 miles of Inland Waterway and the Straits of Mackinaw. Fishing is superb right from the dock! Or if you prefer, use the waterway to access the inland lakes [Mullet and Burt etc.] or Lake Michigan to fish and/or cruise to Bois Blanc ( Boblo) or even Mackinac Island.
My Cabin has a 10' x 65' Sun Deck, Full Kitchen with Dishwasher and Garbage Disposal. I have a gas Barbecue with Outdoor Patio Furniture and I have a fire pit down by the river to enjoy warm nights under the stars.
Springtime brings out the migratory birds and water fowl which are rarely seen anywhere else.
Other activities include bicycling on Mackinac Island that is 11 miles from the Cheboygan inlet, [25 minutes by car] water skiing, golfing at world class courses, and mushroom hunting in the spring.
There is also a Restaurant / Bar with entertainment within walking distance. They have a fish fry every Friday night, GREAT Pizza and a full menu for those nights you just feel like relaxing.

I bought the Cabin because of the location on the Inland Waterway, it's location to Mackinaw and the Straits of Mackinaw.
I also love to be there in the spring when the migratory water fowl are plentiful.
The place is quiet, the dock is very relaxing and very nice in the morning with coffee and also at sunset. The beaver swims by promptly at 9PM [you can set your watch by it]
Also, The neighbors are helpful in a fix but not even noticeable on an average day.
Six of us just returned from this clean and cozy cottage. The land is beautiful and we loved our bonfires by the lake. We fished in Long Lake which is five minutes away but had more luck right off the dock. We caught Small Mouth Bass, Large Mouth Bass, Rockfish, Perch and Pike . What a variety! (and yes, we saw the beaver : ).
The cottage is close to anything you need from grocery stores to tourist attractions. We visited Mackinaw City, Tunnel of Trees, Mackinaw Island, Indian River-The Cross in the Woods, downtown Harbor Springs. and the kids went to see some bear thing in the UP, Best pizza in town-This Old House Pizza on the corner of Main and Jackson. Be prepared to put on a couple of pounds ; )
The pictures really don't do this property justice. The view from the patio is beautiful and enjoyed listening to nature.
Our host, Ken is willing to answer any questions and is quick with emails. I highly recommend this cottage. Thank you Ken. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
I was travelling on my own - with my pet - to northern Michigan and needed access to Mackinaw City/Mackinac Island. This was the perfect place - 24 minutes away! The house was comfortable, fully stocked with kitchen supplies, and the deck on the back was the perfect place to sit at night. I loved this place!! If I ever go up there again and am in need of a place to stay, I hope this is available. Ken was very accommodating.
Great family vacation for boating, fishing and sight seeing. Our family just spent a week a the rental. Rental has a great view from the deck. Deck has a nice grill and plenty of seating for eating outdoors. The cabin has a well equipped kitchen, although we never found the toaster. Lots of nice bedding and towels are provided. Very friendly neighbors on both sides that are more than happy to give great info on the area. My husband did not even miss any of his sports with Direct TV provided. We had a great time exploring the waterway and even seen Kid Rock in Indian River on his boat. Good pizza at the pines restaurant. Have to add the rental was very clean.
My family and I love this place !!!!!!!! We have stayed here two years in a row it feels like home to us . Working with the owner is awesome he has always gone out his way to help us . The house is great an comfortable has a well stocked kitchen and nice 3 bedrooms I wouldnt stay anywhere else.
I don't know where the lady in the above post stayed but I know it can't be the same place . This place has a great location almost the center of where you need to be for the UP or anywhere else .
Can't wait till next year !!!!!!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟😄
My wonderful family of four traveled to Cheboygan for our last summer trip of 2014. We were traveling with our two dogs and looked forward to what was in store. Our time in the surrounding cities was lovely. This cabin on the other hand was NOT! When we arrived we walked in to find a strong musty smell, only to find a note from the cleaning person explaining that there was a leak in the toilet and we would find a fan in the bathroom. This is where is all started. Next, the lawn crew came and blocked us in the driveway to where we had to drive on the lawn to leave for the island. We were visited by Jehovah's witnesses very early the next morning and the screen door completely broke off the hinges when we opened it. After sending the owner a message about the door, he asked me to measure it and send him the measurements so he could replace it. The deck off the back of the house was in such poor condition, my daughter and I almost fell through the whole thing just walking on it. There are absolutely no outdoor trash cans on the property. You are expected to buy a transfer card to dump your trash, yet the owners of the store they claim sells them, will not sell you one. After all of this, this owner is claiming we left the home "trashed" and used it as a kennel for our dogs. He claims we need to pay for replacing the carpet due to a strong urine and feces smell. Not only is he claiming our dogs ruined his carpets, the neighbors reported that we had four dogs not two. The lies and disrespect this person is spewing is unheard of. My family has rented properties from this site before, with our dogs, and have never had an experience like this. Unprofessional and appalling! Save yourself the deposit and rent a better property with a professional owner that will not make outrageous claims and try to steal your money. It has been claimed that we "trashed" the place, left rancid meat in the microwave, left dirty dishes in the sink, our dogs left two huge bags of dog hair, urinated and defecated on the carpets. These are bogus claims and will be reviewed by my legal team. My husband ran the dishwasher before we left, I personally washed, dried and folded the master bedroom linens and left them on the bed, washed folded and dried the towels in the bathroom, purchased extra laundry soap, toilet paper, paper towel and Kleenex to leave for the next owners (as instructed). These claims are outrageous in nature and completely untrue!
We just got back from spending a long week at the Black River Retreat and are delighted to recommend this cabin both for its amenities and location. There’s plenty of room and the kitchen is well equipped, including a full-size fridge. The deck is large with a table, chairs and umbrella and there’s a nice propane grill. The property is large and the pictures on the web-site don’t do the view justice--except for the tree-line you can see almost from horizon to horizon. You can sit on the deck for breakfast or dinner and look across the river to see deer and wild turkeys, and in the evening you can hear the coyotes howl in the distance.
The breeze off the deck was wonderful, in the shade for dinner, and with hardly any bugs--we didn’t need any mosquito repellant the entire time! We watched the sunrise from the deck, the sunset in Cheboygan, and saw a billion stars.
The corner store is within eyeshot (next to the church) and has hand-dipped ice cream for $1.50/scoop, package liquor, and almost anything you’d need in a pinch and is open from 8am until 9:30pm most days. The local tavern is just down the road with a Friday Fish Fry, famous pizza, karaoke, pool table and a very friendly vibe from both patrons and employees.
We took day-trips to Cheboygan, Mackinaw City, the Tunnel of Trees on M-119, Harbor Springs, Petoskey and Charlevoix--all within an hour’s drive or closer. There are plenty of good restaurants, both adult and family-style, or you can save a bundle by cooking meals yourself. Glen’s and Wal-mart groceries are only about fifteen minutes away. For entertainment you can fish from the dock and at the dam, or watch TV, DVD’s and video tapes or listen to the stereo.
The owner is such a gentleman and so easy to do business with. We had a wonderful and relaxing time and will definitely return in the future. ‘Hoping you enjoy your stay as much as we did ours!
