Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderfully decorated house in an excellent location for vacationers. The house was totally updated and had a great kitchen with everything you needed. The location, just 2 miles North of Split Rock Lighthouse, was perfect for visiting all the North Shores State Parks. We enjoyed Bettys Pies in Two Harbours as well as picking up a growler at Castle Danger Brewery. Really enjoyed the unusal black sand beach! Every evening we were down at the fire pit to watch the moon rise and toast s'mores. We slept with windows open and fell asleep to the sounds of the lake. Will definately be back!

Wonderful Private Beach

  • 5 of 5

Great location, near parks and hiking trails. Beautiful private beach. Everything provided. Only thing missing was marshmallow roasting forks. If you love the beauty of nature, this home is ideal!

Definitely stay here if you can--magical!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing!! My family and I have rented properties all over Europe and America, and this quickly became one of our very favorites! The house is terrific--beautiful and well-decorated, perfectly stocked with every comfort, nothing lacking--we especially loved playing games in front of the fire--and the wood was all perfectly chopped and stacked and waiting for us! The towels are soft, the beds comfortable, little extras that you might need are provided--so nice! The view from the back deck over Lake Superior is heavenly--morning coffee out there is a "superior" treat. The house is perfectly located near everything we wanted to do on the North Shore--couldn't be in a better spot, actually! And best of all, the private, black sand beach with perfectly smooth rocks and crystal clear water--we could NOT believe how beautiful it was, how special, how unique--and all for us!! The kids loved wading in the creek, bouldering over the rocks, skipping stones, watching sunrises and sunsets, making cairns, roasting s'mores over the fire pit right there on the beach--it just doesn't get any better than this! And the owner is a true dream to work with--responsive, attentive, efficient, kind, helpful--really one of the best owners we've ever come in contact with!! Seriously, if given the chance to stay here, I highly recommend that you do so!!! We were very sad when it came time to leave and hope to return someday.

Wonderful stay right on the shore

  • 5 of 5

Such a gorgeous spot! Right on the water and in the middle of so many great areas to explore. The beds were so comfortable, the kitchen well-equipped and the house was spotless. The only tiny things lacking were some games to play when it rains, a few blankets to cuddle up with and a few more chairs or a table on the deck to soak in the view with lovely friends. Thank you!

Worth every penny!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought his parents (from Texas) to visit Minnesota... first time to the North Shore (and the region of the country in general). By the end of our stay at Blackbeach cabin, they were wanting to purchase the cabin and move to the north shore! The cabin is impeccably decorated and absolutely gorgeous, inside and out. Vimal has thought of every amenity and detail. The home is well stocked and very comfortable. The location is convenient to Beaver Bay/Silver Bay, the Gitchi Gami bike trail, etc. Most notably, the private beach is worth every penny. Our favorite day of the trip (despite how wonderful all of the activities were), was the day we spent relaxing at the cabin and spending time on the beach making a camp fire, playing frisbee, swimming (brr!), climbing the shoreline, collecting rocks, etc. The owner was extremely easy to contact via email, text message, and phone call. Excellent customer service/communication, and the house was more than I could have expected. Only side note is no internet (I had missed this part in the listing and could have used that to do some work--but oh well!). Being disconnected was relaxing. Highly recommend both for the property itself, but even moreso for the location and the property owner!

Beautiful Home and Beach!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend Black Beach. Our family had a wonderful vacation there! The house is comfortable, private, spacious, very clean, in great condition, and nicely decorated in a fun Northwoods style. The beach is beautiful with great views of the lake. There is plenty to do in the area, but we also had fun just spending time on the beach. The location is also convenient to several state parks, Beaver Bay and Silver Bay, so there is plenty to do. The owner was responsive and helpful and even gave us tips on the area. I would definitely stay here again!
