Peaceful Lake-Front Family Home - Fenced Yard

Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 10 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-10)

Located directly on Diamond Lake, this 3BR/2BA home has a fenced yard, 70' pier, and beds for 9. Located on the west side of the lake with a bluff behind it leaves the water calm even on a windy day.

Diamond Lake is the largest inland lake in SW Michigan (it has a car ferry over to a residential island). Diamond Lake is the ideal water ski, fishing, or boating lake, with plenty of shoreline for interesting sightseeing by boat. And because it is so large, it rarely seems crowded with boats, even on summer weekends.

This 3BR/2Bath(showers only) home is 2 hours from Chicago, 30 minutes from South Bend, and 1 hour from Kalamazoo. MBR has a Queen Pillowtop, second BR has 2 twins, third BR has a double bed and a day bed with trundle, plus a queen Sleeper sofa in the Great Room. Great Room has 14' redwood plank cathedral ceiling, fireplace and AC unit at one end, kitchen at the other. Hardwood flooring throughout. Sunporch faces the lake, with wrap-around deck beyond that.

There is a patio and 'sandbox' (for sunbathing/Bon Fires) out by the lake. Room for vollyball between the house and lake. Sandy bottom out chest deep; docking for 3 boats. Home is NOT wheel chair accessible. Turn-key furnished, including linens, BBQ, etc. Several golf courses within 15 minutes (2 within 2 miles).

This cottage is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We love this cottage. I hate to give such a glowing review because then we will have to share! David the owner is very easy to work with. He answers all emails quickly which is nice. It is very clean, cozy, comfortable and has everything you could ask for. Love the fenced yard. The lake is clean and has a huge yard . Description is accurate. would recommend for sure. We enjoyed the Zeke's restaurant and in Three Rivers Fisher's Lake Inn. You will not be disappointed int his rental. Cannot wait to go back. Thanks David.

Wonderful Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time in this rental. We stayed in early May, and although the weather wasn't all that warm (or sunny), it didn't dampen our time. The home is fully stocked with everything, and anything, you'd need for a wonderful stay (games, fishing equipment, yard chairs by the dozen, a fire pit, a great pier for fishing, and so much more . The yard is large and spacious and the fenced yard was a HUGE bonus because we were traveling with our dog. We rented a pontoon one day and the marina is walking distance away and the pontoon was in tip-top shape. The kitchen is well appointed with everything you'll need (minus food), but the appliances (including the grill) are in fine working order. Local food shopping is limited so plan accordingly and bring your items as you see fit. We brought many frozen items (which worked as ice on our travels) and then ate them through the week as needed. There are plenty of small but tasty food joints in the area which we enjoyed as well. Close to forest preserves, casinos, antiquing, and many of Michigan's quaint lake towns. We could not have been happier with our stay, and would definitely recommend this property to anyone interested in a great location and a very reasonable price!

Comfortable, Functional, and Great Amenities!!! Awesome All-Sports Lake, too!!!

  • 5 of 5

Since 2001 we've rented this home approximately 10-12 times. We've made a LOT of great memories here, and we LOVE Diamond Lake (1,000+ acres). The home suits our family perfectly, as it would most any family. When our kids were little, the fence was ideal as we'd put padlocks on the gates so they could play without us having to constantly watch them, and we knew they were safe (there's a 2nd fenced area for pets, too). We appreciated 2 Full Baths, the appliances (especially the Dishwasher, Washer & Dryer), not having to haul bed linens and towels, the Sunroom, the Deck, Gas Grill and Bonfire Pit. You can put your boat in at the marina and drive it over for the week, or simply enjoy fishing off the pier. Although there are quite a few steps to get down to the house, once there, it's great to simply be able to walk right out to the water on a level yard. Even though I'm over 55, I didn't check 55+ due to the steps, but this is great for any age as long as they can do steps; same with disabilities, as long as it's not someone who needs a wheelchair. (Also, I don't remember the date we were there, so I just picked one.) If any questions, feel free to email me.
