About the property

3 bedrooms/1 bath vintage lakefront cabin

This charming 3 bedroom cabin is located on the shores of Black Lake and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. There is a fully furnished kitchen with cozy dining spaces. We provide a gas grill and picnic table for sunny outdoor lunches and sunset dinners. The shared 40 foot dock allows for easy access to swimming. Our cabin is located 2 miles from the Black Mountain Recreation area which has miles of hiking, ORV, mountain biking and horseback riding trails. Onaway State Park is located only 5 miles away and Ocqueoc Falls (the only falls in lower Michigan) is 15 miles away. Be sure to enjoy evening campfires and watch the night sky light up with stars. We also have a smaller cabin next door (Cozy Nest) that sleeps an additional 4 if you need more space. Feel free to bring your canoe, kayak or fishing boat along. There is a Marina nearby to put your boat in and it can be moored at the cabin.

Located a short drive to Cheboygan, Mackinaw City and Rogers City - there is plenty to do and see. Hop a ferry to Mackinac Island, cross the Mighty Mackinaw Bridge to the Upper Penninsula to tour the Taquamenon Falls, Whitefish Point, Pictured Rock National Lakeshore or the beautiful Les Cheneaux Islands. Visit the Historic Mackinac State Parks or spend an evening at the International Dark Sky Park in Mackinaw City.

Vintage 3 Bedroom Cabin on Black Lake

Location is great, steps from Lake.

Enjoyed the fire pit, & the sunsets when not raining.

Screened porch is very nice and perfect spot to read during rain.

Cabin is old but well appointed and clean.

Not a fan of the small bathroom & shower though.

Thought price was a little much

Feel the echos of a simpler time.....

  • 5 of 5

After looking online at lots of cottages to rent for our honeymoon, we immediately knew this was the place to make special memories. The pictures reminded us of our childhood summers at other Michigan lakes. What a special place. We had perfect weather to enjoy the convenience of hopping on our fishing boat, which fit nicely in the hoist, and caught several sizable small mouth bass, walleye, perch, pumpkin seed and sunfish right out front! Sunsets were spectacular while we sat back in the Adirondack chairs around a campfire. We set up our bag hammock under the trees and enjoyed an afternoon nap while the crickets and lapping waves serenaded us to sleep. The cabin was clean and well-equipped. Plenty of dishes, glasses, pots & pans, cooking and eating utensils, coffee pot, hand mixer, blender, toaster, aluminum foil, Saran Wrap, garbage bags, dish soap, paper plates & napkins. Bring your own dish towels, bath towels, toiletries and bed linens. Pillows are provided. The lake bottom is nice and sandy and water is shallow quite a ways out, making this an ideal place for families with children. Lots of beach toys are stored under the seat bench on the front porch, as well as books and board games.

We can’t think of a better place to celebrate our marriage and kick off the beginning of our lives together. Thank you for sharing this jewel.

After reading this review to my husband, he told me it sounds like I’m trying to sell the place.... actually, we’d love to buy it!! 😁

Relaxing Up-North getaway

  • 3 of 5

Cute older cabin that has been well maintained and is very clean. This is a non-updated cabin, but it adds to the charm. Black Lake is a clean and shallow lake- great for families with small children. There are 2 kayaks and other non-motorized boats for use. We ran into some cooler July weather so we couldn't enjoy the lake as much as we would have liked. We had AMAZING meals while we were there: The Bluffs had great food and live music. Up North 23 in Roger's City has local fare, and outdoor dining overlooking Lake Huron. 211 had amazing pizza - we just stopped in after a long day after Mackinac to get some food not expecting much- really nice people and great drinks and food. Coffee on the porch in the morning A+. Ocqueoc Falls - basically a great picnic place- then bring water shoes and it's super fun walking in the river on the rocks or swimming in the little waterfall swimming area. A very much appreciated unplugged long weekend up north. Note: GPS does not get you directly to the cabin, but you'll find it!

cute & quaint

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. This cabin was very clean and the view through the large sliding glass door out through the porch was amazing! It offered everything we needed for a few days of R&R. We kayaked and loved the fire pit.

One of our favorite places

  • 4 of 5

We've visited these cabins three seperate times for a total of five weeks and we can't wait to return in July. If you're looking for a true lake life experience, then these cabins are just what you need. They are fully furnished, humble but clean, cabins with a beautiful lake front view. Enjoy coffee in the enclosed porch in the morning, the warm sunshine of the day, and and fall asleep to the cool lake breeze.

We love the surrounding area as much as we love this little property. There's water rafting nearby, shopping is 45 mins away, lighthouses, glass bottom boats to view ship wrecks on lake Huron, water falls, and you are close enough to Canada to pop in for the day.

Bring your favorite games and unplug for the week. You won't regret the investment in your family!
