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!

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
