Get a taste of the good life with one of the best holiday retreats southwest Michigan has to offer at the 'Sheppard Chalets'. Cass County is blessed with the largest lake of southwest Michigan's Lower Peninsula, Diamond Lake! Just 2 hours from Chicago and only 25 minutes from Notre Dame!!! Enjoy the game, the lake and a round or two of golf all in one weekend!

Newly remodeled in 2016! Gorgeous! Can sleep up to 8: 3 Bedroom/2 full Bath w/ jacuzzi, approx. 1600 s.f. home, that sits on the first hole of the DIAMOND LAKE GOLF Course!! Master bedroom suite with king size bed, ceiling fan, masterbath with jacuzzi and walk in shower; 2nd bedroom has a day bed w/ extra mattress and full bed, and 3rd bedroom has a Queen size bed. Full Size Laundry closet along with amazing huge professional kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, brand new cabinets, amazing granite island with sink, and dining room next to 2nd bathroom with shower. Also outdoor firepit, gas grill, outdoor patio, and amazing views of the Diamond Lake Golf Course!! Walk to Dussell's farmers market, our private beach, or just walk out the backyard to the DL golf course and ice cream shop for those after dinner treats!

Diamond Lake's shores have sandy beaches and a public marina with a boat launch and various water sports to offer. Be sure to check out the Park Shore Marina for all your boating pleasures!! The marina offers all types of water sport rentals, boat launching, and pier rental. Enjoy the newly remodeled Cafe!! Explore the lake with a ferry ride to Diamond Isle and view the beautiful lake front homes all around the lake. Even golf lovers will have a grand time at your choice of 2 spectacular golf courses, either the new 18 hole Park Shore Golf Club or the 9 hole Diamond Lake Golf Club. Bring your bikes for a scenic tour around beautiful Diamond Lake!

The historic town's downtown area and neighboring Dowagiac has all the amenities with plenty of options for gourmets and shopaholics alike. The town of Jones in St. Joseph County has the spectacular Swiss Valley Ski Resort (just 10 miles) with several lifts and tall skiiing peaks for all the fun of skiing or snowboarding. And those with a taste for wine will enjoy the fact you are staying in the Michigan Wine Country and most wineries offer fabulous wine-tasting tours! A 25 minute drive will get you to Notre Dame and South Bend, Lake Michigan, and Amish Country in Shipshawana. Enjoy a fun day of shopping or enjoy the brand new water park!!

Absolutely one of the best kept secrets in the mid-west....Diamond Lake is only two hours from Chicago!! Make yourself at home...you will absolutely fall in love with this romantic Michigan get-a-away and want to come back year after year!! Recreation apart, simply relax and enjoy looking at the sunset and sip on a sparkling wine while hanging out at the park wondering which of the two - the Michigan wine or Diamond Lake's waters - glisten and sparkle more!

Please email me for any questions....thanks for looking!
Fondly,
Terri and Dave :-)
