Wood decks and the best sandy water on the lake, walk out over 300 feet (no muck, no critters). Walleye hole is only a few hundred yards away! Relax by the water under the shade of our White Birch and Cedar trees. Enjoy the beautiful view of peaceful Black Mountain and a breathtaking sunrise over the lake.
'All Sports' 10,130 acre Black Lake has the best fishing and water sports as well as snowmobiling, cross country and downhill skiing close by.

8 by 10 Wood floating dock can be moved to any depth in the lake. Ocqueoc Falls is close by; kids love spending the day playing in the waterfall. Only 30 minutes to the Mackinac Bridge, historical Fort Michilamackinaw, and shopping. Enjoy evening waterfront campfire and the outdoor 4 person hot tub in screened octagonal gazebo.

Front secluded road safe for kid’s bike riding. Amish made 16x12 Log Cabin with rocking swing porch handles overflow. Hammock, wood swings, and picnic tables.
Two rowboats with life jackets, your own 40-foot dock - great for sun bathing. Bring your own boat or rent ours - there's plenty of docking room! Lake has a waterfront restaurant (The Bluffs - excellent food; dine on their beautiful patio overlooking the lake.). Deer, ducks, turkeys can be seen on or near property (seasonal). Snowmobile, cross-country, ORV trails right across the road, with Black Mountain State REC right around the corner with campground.
Both cottages have new wooden-look laminate flooring. Cottage 1 has a beautiful stone fireplace. Cottage 2 has an electric heater with faux fire-place look (in addition to whole-cottage gas furnace).
Homes only allow 5-6 people max, with 2 parking spots at each home (plan accordingly with trailers -additional parking options available, please inquire). Boat launch is about 3-4 miles down the road at now-closed marina (although marina is no longer open for business, the ramp is still open/useable). If you wish to bring a pet(s), please make arrangements with owners. They must be leashed, good-natured and completely trained (no more than 2 total). Don't want to cook? Walk up the hill to Lorenzo's Italian Restaurant. No need to drive anywhere; kick back and relax!

Year Purchased: 2014
About: My wife Theresa and I were introduced to Black Lake 18 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 other families so that they can enjoy the lake as much as we do.
Why Onaway, MI, USA:
We are an ideal place for families to gather. The separate cottages allow everyone to enjoy being together, yet still have their own space when it's time for a quiet nap. 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. 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.
