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 weekend with family!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I met his brother, wife, and son for a long weekend. They are from Wisconsin and we are from Texas, and so we don't get to see one another as often as we would like.

The owner provided good driving directions and we arrived on a Friday afternoon. The wind was howling and the waves on the beach were huge! We were mesmerized as we had not ever seen Lake Superior before! The black sand beach at the house is stunningly beautiful.

All the bedrooms had great water views and it was so nice to fall asleep in the comfy bed listening to the waves! The view from the living room is also spectacular. I cannot say how much we enjoyed our time at this home. Firewood was provided and we enjoyed a fire each morning and built bonfires on the beach in the evenings.

The kitchen was well equipped and my sister-in-law and I enjoyed cooking together in it. There is also a nice grill on the deck and we put the men to work one evening.

This house is so close to all the beautiful state parks, hiking trails, sights, etc. and we lacked for nothing. We had an absolute blast and look forward to a return visit.

Black Beach was beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin (a house) was wonderful- spacious but with a cozy north woods feel. Beautifully decorated. The beach is secluded and has soft black sand. We had fires on the beach every night (except the one it rained)! The owners were very responsive before our stay and, I'm sure would have been during our stay if we needed them - but we didn't. Everything was perfect! Our family looks forward to staying there again!

The beach is perfect for young children. They fell in love with the lake, swam in it, collected rocks and "gems" and we all participated in leaf races down the creek. The house is lovely and has everything you would ever need.
