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!

House 1: 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!

House 2: Will sleep 8 in beds; this home also faces the 1st hole of the Diamond Lake Golf course, with approx. 1600 square fee and all on one level. Features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, one with a Jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower. Will sleep 8 comfortably, with a King, Full, and 4 twins. Open floor plan with stainless steel kitchen and huge master bedroom with fireplace, walk-in closet. Beautiful 3 season room faces the Diamond Lake Golf Course and just three homes down, is House no 2! Enjoy the outdoor fire pit and picnic table, a round of 9 hole golf for only $12, or your favorite ice cream at the clubhouse! Private association park and sandy beach is only 4 blocks away!

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 either of these romantic Michigan get-a-aways 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 :-)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We've always wanted to build our own cabin in the woods in 1994 our dream came true!!

Why the Owner Chose Cassopolis, MI, USA:
We absolutely fell in love with Diamond Lake and from the moment we pulled up onto our tree lined street, we were sold! We bought our land in 1994 and started building our 'cabin in the woods' in 1996. It was a great little rustic cabin and being only 2 hours from Chicago, it was our home away from home! It took about 4 years to build on the weekends, and off time, and by 2000 it was done!! But in 2001, the area was devasted by a tornado and we lost 14 trees on our property! The home was built so strong though that the only damage was a little roof damage and our porch. So we tore down the porch and in 2002 added a 30x40 family room, basement, front and back porch. Our little cabin turned into a big cabin and we actually lived there for a short time in 2003. But in 2004 we moved back to the Chicago area, and decided to rent it out so that others could enjoy our beautiful custom built home and the great Diamond Lake area! We also have two other gorgeous homes, completely remodeled and updated, facing the Diamond Lake Golf course that we rent out too!! Our newest home, House 3, is pictured here and we just started taking rentals in July 2016.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
So, after a day of boating or fishing on beautiful 1029 acre Diamond Lake, sit back and unwind and enjoy a great barbeque on the back deck and roast marshmellows on the outdoor fire pit. You'll want to come back year after year, and soon our home will feel like your home! We hope you enjoy it!! Dave & Terri
