The proprietors of Black's bay Lodge (Glenn & Judy Black) have spent the
last 22 years building their dream. While family and friends have enjoyed
the experience all along, we have recently opened the site up to access by
We want to build a community of like-minded people who are willing to enjoy
and share in our creation. We recognize however, that BBay is not suitable
to all people, nor all needs. Therefore we have established policies and
application forms to be sure there is an appropriate match between your
needs and our ability to meet those needs.
Please review the details of our facilities as described on our website.
We believe in full disclosure so there are no unpleasant surprises, even if
you initially forget to ask an important question.

All applications are considered on a first come-first served basis.
To be fair, the first person who has their application and waiver forms
filled out & returned to BBay with their package deposit fee (cheque, money
order, or direct deposit) will get the booking (assuming their application
is otherwise acceptable).

Our rental policy is to choose our renters carefully; renting only to
responsible adults such as yourself.
Our insurance policy doesn't fully cover damage or liability, so we also ask
- Pay a deposit up front of 50% of your rental fee which also serves to
hold your reservation, and insure the risk of any damage which could
- Sign the legal waiver and indemnification agreement. We realize only
a few places use a waiver as we do. We believe the Waiver is an important
part of our "full disclosure policy", and everyone being responsible for
themselves & their actions. For more info, see our
BBay Rental Policy and
If there is less than 3 months away from the start of your requested
rental period, we will need full payment (security deposit + rental fee +
GST) with your application.

- After you are approved, we will colour in the dates of your confirmed
rental as red (ie. "booked") on the
calendar . A date coloured in red means someone is already booked to
sleep there on that evening (ie. if Aug. 16 is red, it means somebody is
booked to have the cottage from 2:00 PM on Aug. 16 until 11:00 AM on Aug.
17). Our weekly rentals normally go from 2:00 PM on Saturday until 11:00
AM on the following Saturday.

Application form to BBL (be sure to still send the signed original in the
mail with the Waiver and the cheque).
As an option, we will hold your requested dates for you for 7 calendar
days after receipt of your monies (ie. by direct bank deposit) while your
Application form and Waiver arrives in the mail. Notify us that you
have chosen this option and we will send the necessary banking info to you.
We will confirm receipt of the funds and pencil in your name for the chosen
dates, pending receipt and approval of your paperwork within 7 calendar
days. If we haven't received all your paperwork in correct order within
the 7 calendar days, we reserve the right to accept somebody elses
application and refund your deposit.
On receipt and approval of your paperwork and funds, BBL will e-mail you
additional information about your adventure package, what to pack, other
events & activities in the area, etc.
BBL want to make sure that adventure goes well for both you and us.
