About: My wife Theresa and I were introduced to Black Lake 15 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 others so that they can enjoy the lake as much as we do.
Why Black Lake: 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. It can change and go the other way, but our side of the lake is the best side most of the time. Walk out over 300 feet with a gradual depth increase over hard packed sand. This gradual increase is great for kids.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: 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.
