This property worked out very well for our family. The adjoining suite suited my oldest daughter's family, while the single rooms suited my other daughters. The main gathering area was large enough to accommodate the whole crew. Located next to the state park was perfect for launching my boat and the boat hoist worked well for storing it. Plenty of room for everyone to park and store my boat trailer.
We enjoyed our family vacation at Black Lake! The property was perfect for our group of eleven. The individual units were perfect for privacy and the main house for group activities. I will honestly say the lake was perfect for swimming with the sandy bottom. It was great for all swimming levels in our group. We brought our kayaks and enjoyed many hours kayaking on the lake. The black mountain recreation trail was nearby as well as a great bike path near Onaway. The property was a great location for our day trips to the Huron Sunrise trail, the Tunnel of Trees, Mackinac Island, and biking in petoskey. Many thanks to Kathy for stopping by to check on me after my bee sting. That was so very thoughtful and kind of her. We enjoyed our vacation and would highly recommend this vacation rental!
Wonderful vacation destination
Kathy was extremely welcoming, and took care of everything we needed. Highly recommend this place for big family vacations !
Great vacation spot for extended families and kids
I'm a bit hesitant to review this property because I would prefer to keep this little gem a secret. We stayed with a large group of family ranging from grandparents to 1 year old kids, a total of 14. Black Lake is a perfect swimming lake for anyone young and old, the water was warm and clear, there is no muck or seaweed anywhere and in the water the ground is all sand. I walked 400 yards from the beach and was only 3 feet deep. The beach is huge and pristine. The yard is also huge and immaculate with plenty of room for our family games of croquet and soccer. Nice bonfire pit with adirondack chairs made for a great end to the day to watch the gorgeous sunsets. The house and rooms are all comfortable and having that many bathrooms was great. I can't say enough nice things about this place and the only tip I would recommend is if you are looking to fish, either bring your own boat with motor or an electric motor. There is also a boat delivery service that will rent for a day or the week so we'll be doing that the next time we vacation here! Thank you Jerry and Kathy for an amazing time, I really enjoyed getting to meet you both and really appreciate the care and effort you've put into this place. Thanks, Mike Young
We had a large group of adults enjoy this property this weekend and had a blast, Owners were very commodating to there guest to make sure they achieve the best stay possible. The water is about 1 1/2 to 3 ft deep for a good city block, all sand bottomed, perfect waters for kayaking or motor boating just be prepared to anchor your boat out a few feet beyond the dock if it's a larger inbound outboard, because of the shallower waters, we enjoyed the strong presence of the northern lights on the first night. 211 bar/grill (awesome food) & gas station is about 2 mins away
A perfect location for recreation AND relaxation!
This was our second time visiting this cabin on Black Lake! We have been so pleased with the property and the owners, Jerry and Kathy. Given the old motel set up we are able to rent the main house and multiple rooms to bring friends and family along for the fun. Here are some specifics.
Beach and Waterfront: A good size, sandy and shallow, great for little ones.
Firepit: Located right by the water.The Adirondack chairs were a little uncomfortable so consider bringing bag chairs. Wood is available for purchase near by.
Yard: Very big. Great for yard games and sports.
Boat recreation and Fishing: We bring our fishing boat and utilize the boat hoist. There is a table to clean the walleye and pike that are caught. We also were able to take out the row boats a few times. Pretty fun for the kids.
The description is spot on as far and the property was well-maintained as we are concerned. We will continue to book our vacations at this gem on Black Lake!
