Great vacation spot for extended families and kids

  • 5 of 5

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

Great spot for a large family - so many great amenities!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such an amazing week at this sweet place! Jerry and Kathy were so accommodating with our large family. This location was ideal for fishing, boating, sunning, kayaking, taking great walks, night time fires, little ones playing and napping while adults relaxed, and sunset viewing! It was the first time our family had vacationed since we were all kids and it was a great success, due in large part to great facilities! The Ocqueoc Falls and Presque Isle lighthouse were great short trips away; can’t say enough about how happy we were with this spot, the facilities, and the owners!

Ideal Property

  • 5 of 5

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.
