If you are looking for a scenic and private place to host a gathering, the Blackwater Lodge is a perfect spot. An incredible amount of thought and detail went into this beautifully appointed "cabin" on the lake. The layout of the property definitely has large groups in mind with the main floor being an open space with a seating area and fireplace, deck, large kitchen, a master bedroom and bath, half bath and laundry. Upstairs is a multi-level movie room and the downstairs features another living area, wine room, large bedrooms, a two-sided fireplace, and bathrooms. As other reviewers have mentioned, sleeping large groups is no problem.
In addition there is a pontoon, ski boat, jet skis, water trampoline, plus a firepit, land for hiking and snowmobiles for the winter months. I have been to the Blackwater in both winter and summer and both were incredible stays. One was shortly after the new owners took over and then about a year later. By the second trip they had made many improvements to the property, although it was beautiful to begin with. I found the owners to be very accomodating and helpful. There is something so warm and inviting about this place - it is wonderful for an intimate gathering and I am already planning our next stay!
