About Kathy Wildfong

While growing up my family rented a cabin on Black Lake every year. Later in life my decision to go back and purchase a cabin was a great investment. While enjoying the peaceful nature around black lake either boating or sightseeing, I never get tired of enjoying the great people of Onaway.

Why Kathy Wildfong chose Onaway

Although the lake is one of the largest inland lakes in Michigan, the peacefulness and tranquility of Northern Michigan remains.

What makes this cabin unique

Hundreds of miles of trails either for horseback riding, ATV riding or just hiking, there is something here for you. You are close to the inland waterway, Mackinaw Bridge is less than an hour away, and Mackinaw Island is readily available for a day trip. Ocqueoc Falls is only a short ride from the cabin and a great afternoon of hiking and swimming in the rushing falls.

It was nice

  • 3 of 5

It was great to have the kayaks available, We had fun. Location was great with couple things to do around. It would have been nice to rent a pontoon on black lake, We had to go to Indian River to rent one. The cabin needed freshening up and cleaner. Chairs were stained too. Had a very nice fire pit and firewood. All in all we had a good time and a lot of fun.

Owner's Response: I am sorry about the condition of the cabin. We have a cleaning crew that comes in to take care of that for us. I will send your response to them. The chairs I am very disappointed about. We had just purchased them for the cabin. We had a wild bunch of renters (that won't be back) that really destroyed a lot of items. In the future we will be screening our renters more thoroughly so that all can enjoy the pleasure of our cabin without these issues. It is a shame that there is no boat rental for Black Lake. Perhaps it's something that can be addressed to the Black Lake Association. I am very glad you had a good time. Kathy

Beautiful lake view

  • 4 of 5

Pros: amazing sandy bottom lake in the backyard thats waist deep forever. Kayaks were super fun. Fully stocked kitchen, bbq in backyard. Very peaceful lake. Couple of cute restaurants about 10 minutes away. Cheboygan and Mack City not too far. Lots of sleeping accommodations, two full beds two twin bunks, couches. Games and DVDs for a rainy day. Lots of blankets if it gets cold. Extra towels. Back porch looking out at lake is perfect for morning coffee. Clean place. Fire pit for marshmallows.

Couple of very very minor cons: top bunk on one of the bunk beds is really close to the ceiling. Couldn't figure out the weird light over the stove so it was hard to see what I was cooking but no big deal. The row boat has a very small/slow leak. One of the full beds was really saggy in middle.

Overall very cute place and fun to stay at. No major issues. Loved the peace and quiet.
