Looking for a cabin with boat access to 45 miles of inland waterway? Stay at My Black River Retreat and use the waterway to access Lake Michigan and cruise to Bois Blanc or Mackinac Island. How about a huge 10' x 65' sun deck where you can all find a relaxing place to enjoy the outdoors with Barbecue, patio furniture and hopefully your favorite brew from the Cheboygan Brewing Company.
Meal prep and clean up is fast so you spend more time exploring Cheboygan! Like to hike? Ask us for a Black Mountain Forest Recreation Area map and GO! Did you know, Cheboygan County has more miles of trails than any other County in Michigan.

River location! Dock your boat along our 100 feet of frontage on the Black River. Warm nights under the stars are best spent around the river’s edge fire pit. Local businesses and bars with entertainment are within walking distance of My Black River Retreat on the Black River - great for a Friday night fish or Pizza.
Things To Do
Guests always comment on how good the fishing is right from the dock so bring your rods, tackle and some live bait. If you are lucky enough to visit in spring, get ready for a front-row seat to a migratory bird and waterfowl SHOW! Go mushroom hunting too. Since your so close to Lake Huron, you might want to plan a quick visit to the Lake Huron shore wetlands - a boardwalk leads to the amazing Lake Huron/Duncan Bay shoreline!
Popular water adventures include glass bottom boat rides, private charters, snorkeling, scuba charters (we recommend the shipwreck tour scavenger hunt). Land adventures include competitive lumberjack shows, The Cheboygan Opera House, Cheboygan Farmers Market, and a tourist must-do bicycling on Mackinac Island - just 11 miles from the Cheboygan inlet, 25 by car.
