The best trails in all of northern Michigan and the very wild nature of the forests of the upper Great Lakes make Black Mountain Lodge a truly one-of-a-kind outdoors fun and adventure destination.
Is motocross or ATV riding in the north country your passion? Do you seek a challenge amidst tall pines and hardwoods? Do you, your family, and friends just love amazing trails for snowmobiling cut along step ridges with incredible views? Do you dream of endlessly perfect trails for exploring northern Michigan on your cross country skis? Do you love getting out in the fresh air for hours and heading home for a rendezvous back at your starting point for a delicious sandwich and some liquid refreshment? If the answer is yes to these questions then you must visit Black Mountain Lodge and Black Mountain Recreation Area and see for yourself. There’s elbow room for outdoor lovers of every kind here.
The best trails in all of Michigan are just part of our story. When you overnight with us at Black Mountain Lodge, the whole of the Great Up North awaits you. Whether you stay for a day, a weekend, or a week, you’ll never be short of incredible things to do and see. What can you do on a day off from the trails at Black Mountain?
How about some shopping in historic downtown Cheboygan, just 15 minutes from the lodge? Maybe a sightseeing trip down Old Historic Route 23 along the Straits of Mackinac and the Lake Huron Coast. Michigan’s famous Inland Waterway flows through northern Lower Peninsula just a few miles away so you might want to bring your boat and get on the water for a day of unsurpassed boating and fishing experiences.
Try a short drive to Mackinaw City where you and your family can take in the great Michigan State Historic Parks of Ft. Michilimackinac, Old Mill Creek Discovery Park, and Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse. And of course, it’s just a short ferry ride to the magic of historic Mackinac Island where only bikes and horse drawn carriages get you around a place seemingly frozen in time.
You’ll love returning to Black Mountain Lodge after any day trip. Our hospitality deep in the northern Michigan forests is just the thing after any tour of Great Up North.
When you come for a memorable meal overlooking the lake, indoors or out, you’ll never be disappointed. Our pine log dining areas are warm and inviting and our staff is eager to please. Our chef and cooks can’t wait to offer you a great lunch or a savory evening entree to remember. Come casual and be sure to bring your appetite!
We’ve got entertainment on the weekends in the Eagle’s Nest Lounge and Bar and a fabulous outdoor hearth for gathering around with your friends and family after a day of exploration on the trails.
So relax, you’re in the Great Up North. Join us!
