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!

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!

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic. It looks like its decorated right out of "House Beautiful" magazine; sits in a fantastic spot, with a private cove and fun beach area with a fire ring for evening fires. Deck is a lovely spot to sit early mornings for bird watching or just basking in the sun. Also it's in a great place for tourist stuff. Owner was very responsive to emails and phone calls. Would highly recommend and would love to have another stay.

This home is fantastic

  • 5 of 5

I' m not sure I can say enough...this home is fantastic. The secluded location with private beach offer complete relaxation. Our evenings at the fire pit and taking the polar plunge will not be forgotten.

The home is extremely well appointed - Kohler plumbing; Marvin windows; Tempurpedic mattress in the master BR (my wife and I slept the best we had in years...sound of the waves hitting shore didn't hurt either!). It is clear the owner takes pride in his home and we are thankful we had a chance to take advantage of this relaxing getaway.

An added plus for us was the fact there was essentially no wireless phone service which made it easier to reconnect as a family.

Tattegouche State park is just up the road and offered great hiking. Gooseberry Falls is close as well. There are so many more options for outdoor activities I couldn't begin to list them all.

If you are looking for a high-end home in a picturesque setting, this is the place.

Wonderful House with great location near Gooseberry and Split Rock

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautifully decorated log cabin house. Every day I would notice new fun woodsy decorations or touches such as the moose head pulls on the closet doors in the "Moose Huus" bedroom. Beds were very comfortable, I slept really well. The black sand beach had a great fire pit that we used every night for s'mores and watching the moon rise. Nicely appointed with great appliances and plenty of pots, pans, potatoe peelers etc. - you name it. It was really great to have a dishwasher in the kitchen. It was also very handy to have a laundry room. The location is perfect, just 2 miles north of Split Rock Light House. It was easy to do day trips with our out of state friends and show them all the north shore has to offer. Owner was quick to respond and extremely helpful. Will definately book again. Thanks. :)

Beautiful Cabin with Private Beach on the Northshore

  • 5 of 5

It's a great 3 bedroom cabin with charming characteristics and modern amenities. We had 4 children and there were plenty of room for everyone. It was wonderful waking up to the sound of nature, and gathering around the fireplace in the evenings. Having the private beach right in the back yard is amazing. The kids enjoyed playing on the beach everyday. The cabin is centrally located along the Northshore which was perfect for us as we took day trips to explore Grand Marais, Lutsen, nearby Gooseberry Falls and Split Rock Light House. The owners are very helpful and responsive. We would definitely come back and would highly recommend this place.
