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... More

The house is beautiful and the grounds are decent (although very soggy). The water in the house is very rusty and my daughter's blonde hair turned orange from showering at the house (and we couldn't get it out!). The boat equipment (which you pay a lot for) wasn't working very well and we had to make several calls to the... More

The home is very nice and very spacious on a lovely lake. The kitchen is large enough for 4 or 5 to cook in. We were 22 ladies sharing the 4 bathrooms and that worked well. Here are a few suggestions: Towel racks in the bathrooms for wet towels; more large pots and pans would be very useful, after all... More

Perfect for large groups. We had many and never felt like we were on top of eachother. Plenty of room. They have thought of many amenities that I would not expect. Music, movies, fire pit and wood, kayaks, trampoline in water, all the comforts of home but bigger! Beautiful area, top of the line kitchen, plenty of room for your... More

There's something for the whole family at the Blackwater Lodge. The home is spacious, clean, and spacious. The lake is great for the pontoon boat and the jet ski.

My view is from the perspective of matriarch of a large family - my children, grandchildren and siblings in attendance numbered over 30, ages 7 to 70+. Not everyone stayed in the lodge, but we cooked, walked and jogged, sunned, played lawn games. We have great pictures of our group diving, kayaking, tubing and enjoying the water toys. Someone else... More

We just returned from a fantastic stay at the Black Water Lodge near Brainerd Minnesota. We had a large family get together with 30 people coming and going from all areas of the country. None of us had ever experienced anything as wonderful as BWL. This beautiful log lodge is huge, but very comfortable. The finest quality in wood and... More

I know it looks a little cheesy to give a perfect review, but to me that's what this place was. We had 27-28 people staying there for a total of four nights, mostly adults but also several teenagers and pre-teens. And though there were only 6 (I think) bedrooms to split between us all, those of us that had to... More

I HIGHLY recommend staying at Blackwater Lodge. Chris and Sandy were very friendly and accommodating. It is a great area with plenty of things to do. If you have some extra cash in your pocket ask Chris about the float plane, its well worth it..

LARGE Lodge-type house. Our whole fame-damily had a blast even on the cloudy rainy days. Huge well appointed kitchen. Private, quiet setting on crystal clear lake. We used the firepit, dock, & hammock daily. Caught loads of fish. Saw tons of wildlife -- Loon families!!, Mallard families, snapping turtles, hummingbirds right outside kitchen window, Minnesota gophers, deer, eagles, hawks, BIG... More
