Breathe taking
Hands down, the best experience I've ever had with a family getaway. House was beyond amazing and picture prefect . My family and I will most definitely be coming back next year.

Amy, you made our day!  We love when our guests appreciate a property as much as we do.  The expansive view of the lake, the private dock and its proximity to the Mackinac Bridge make it the perfect vacation spot. We'll be looking for you again next year!

Great home
Great home! Love the view of Black Lake! Beautiful sunset and sunrise.


We agree, Anthony, the sunsets and sunrises are amazing!  There is something about waves gently lapping at the shore that can be so mesmerizing.  Do come back again.

Lovely home
The house was simply gorgeous, as was the view of the lake. Waters can get a bit choppy since it's located on the east side, so be prepared for that. Freshwater was responsive, on top of everything, and great to work with. We plan to return in the fall :)


Andrea, we are so happy that you enjoyed your vacation at Black Lake Sunset Dreams.  One recent guest said this about it:  "Sunset Dreams was more than a place to stay, it was simply an experience."  I think that pretty much says it all.  Thank you also about your kind words toward Freshwater Vacation Rentals.  We pride ourselves on making customer service our number 1 priority.  We look forward to seeing you in the fall - it will be gorgeous there then.

Beautiful home, beautiful lake, very clean and wonderful accommodations.
The home was perfect and clean and very accommodating. The house was well stocked with many little non essentials that made it very homey and inviting. Would strongly recommend!


Cheryl, thanks for the recommendation.  We are thrilled that Black Lake Sunset Dreams worked out so well for you. The sunsets there are pretty spectacular!
