Black's Cliff is the kind of cabin resort that used by everywhere in nothern Wisconsin. This is a great place for families with kids ages 7-14. The younger kids may find the lake a bit cold, and older ones may want more action.
Black's has cabins of all sizes perched on the shore of Lower Kaubashine Lake. A steep climb down the stairs brings guests to the sand-bottom swim area with a dock and swim raft, rowboats, kayaks, a pedal boat, inner tubes and other water toys. Each cabin comes with a rowboat, and outboard motors are availalable for rent. The pontoon boat also can be rented. Black's has a small playground for kids.
Cabins are clean but basic. This is not a five-star property with lots of services. Owners Jenny and Troy are friendly, available and accomomdating, but these are northwoods cabins. Most have fireplaces, and don't miss the swining beds on the screened porches. There are no phones in the cabins and limited TV reception, but that's just one great reason to disapper into the northwoods. This is the kind of place where families come back the same week every year for generations. I've met people who have returned every year for more than a half century.
The Bearskin State Trail is a short distance away for snowmobiling, biking or hiking, and fishing is good on the lake (panfish, bass, northern and the occasional musky).. Jacobi's, one of Wisconsin's top-rated restaurants, is a few miles away. Minocqua offers go karts, mini golf, candy and ice cream shops, a waterpark, horseback riding, free waterski shows, fish hatchery tours, wildlife parks and other activities kids will love.
