Cassopolis cabin description
Come to beautiful Diamond Lake and stay at our charming Cottage- Creating Memories that will last a lifetime. Experience your Get Away Adventure on Diamond Island enjoying the quaint and quiet atmosphere of our cozy A-Frame. Accessible only by car-ferry or boat, this enchanting isle makes you feel like you have stepped back in time to a simpler and less hectic world.
The A-Frame is located on the west side of the island, offering the best possible view of our “Endless” Sunsets! Bring your Boat (or Jet Ski) and park it at a Private Pier, or rent a boat from the marina on the lake. Relax for hours enjoying coffee on the Porch or the tranquility of fishing from the Pier. The house was completely refurbished and redecorated in 2006 in traditional country style.
Diamond Lake is the largest lake in Southwestern Michigan. This All Sports Lake is over a thousand acres in size, includes an exclusive 43 acre island, public beaches & boat launch. There are 2 golf courses just minutes away. Do you like to Bike? Cross the ferry by bike and travel the 10 mile long biking trail that follows Diamond Lake’s 1,020 acre shoreline. You are only minutes away from the shopping centers and fine dining of Dowagiac, and less then 30 minutes away from the a number of excellent Vineyards & Wineries- as this area is referred to as “Michigan’s Wine Country.” You can also shop in Amish Country, at Shipshewana which is just over 30 minutes away.
Exclusive Diamond Island is a relaxing and romantic get away. Diamond Lake is “one of the best kept secrets in the mid-west!” You will absolutely fall in love with Diamond Lake, the Island and the A-Frame that we call our vacation home! You will want to come back year after year!

Great spot! Back deck is beautiful, overlooking the lake. Owners very helpful and good to work with. While sleeping 6 might be doable (kids perhaps) I wouldn't recommend more than four people...

Wow.. What a great place to spend our vacation. Just a short ferry ride to the island and its like you have your own island paradise. Great deck to enjoy spectacular sunsets... the lake just sparkles... Now we know how Diamond Lake got its name. The owners have thought of everything. All the amenities of home and more.. I would recomend this property to anyone looking for a little piece of paradise!!!

We returned to this quaint, cozy cottage for our second time. Last summer, after having spotted it on vrbo.com we decided to make it our girls-trip destination. Because we were only available for a four day getaway, several of the places we looked at would not accommodate less than a week's stay. Until we found this place....and what a find it was! From the initial steps (contacting the owners, etc) all the way through the trip, everything was easy and laid-back, just like life on Diamond Lake. It is a beautiful lake, full of water sports, kayaking, and people lazing on floats. The people in this remote island reflect the vibe- they are friendly- always a wave to passerby- but content just doing their thing; which in most cases is nothing at all! The cottage is situated on the side of the island that sees the most spectacular nightly sunsets, either from the deck or on the lawn from the adirondack chairs, or down on the dock by the water. Inside, we found everything we needed...the whole place looked brand new. A cozy bedroom on the main floor, and a small bath and kitchen, as well as a larger living room that had everything a vacationer needs....linens, towels, all kitchen gear, cd player, and even a margarita maker!! The spiral staircase leads upstairs to a loft with three beds- perfect for sleeping after a day spent outside. But the best part of this cottage is the outside....a new tek deck flanks the whe back of the cottage, and seating is abound, both on it or in the beautifully landscaped yard. Down the steps, is a wide dock with different ladders to access the water and kayaks/floats ready to use. Though we came a month earlier than last year, the water was still pleasant and calm, and simply beautiful. I can't say enough about this getaway and we already look forward to next year...driving the few short hours (coming from Columbus) to feel a world away. After the car ferry took us off the island, and away from this lovely, majestic place, we missed it immediately! I highly recommend giving it, Diamond Lake, and especially this cottage, a try...you will not be disappointed. Bring your food and beverage (ice too! There is no store on the island) and the rest is done for you! What a carefree, clean, perfect spot! Thank you for another wonderful stay, and loads more memories!!

This cottage was so quaint and comfortable. They have thought of everything you might need for an enjoyable get-a-way: kayaks to enjoy the lake, binoculars to view the area, dvds for entertainment, a wonderful stereo system for background music, soft towels, pots, pans and dishes. We had a relaxing girls' weekend away from the stresses of life. Sitting on the dock and enjoying the views of the sunset and the stars helped to melt away the stress. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us.
