About Shawn Diebold

I also live in my own home right on Pine Lake and am nearby and available for any assistance when needed. I have rented this cottage since 1999. I have many years experience managing and renting cottages! I am a very flexible owner/manager and willing to accommodate most requests, if at all possible. I also own my own business in another professional industry, based in sales and have many years experience working with the public and offering flexibility. I have lived in this cottage myself so I have a real feel for the benefits it has to offer. Very unique feel, Quiet, peaceful and relaxing environment!

Shawn Diebold purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Shawn Diebold chose Southwest

Much of this cottage is brand new after an extensive remodel during Winter 2013/2014. It is very clean and in great condition. Some of the upgrades are: completely remodeled and redesigned kitchen with upgrades of new white cabinets, granite countertops, breakfast bar added in new kitchen layout, uniquely tiled backsplash, new tile floor, new upgraded ceiling tiles, new recessed lighting with dimmers, new kitchen supplies; dishes, pots & pans, utensils and upgraded appliances including added Bosch dishwasher. Tastefully appointed decor with lake theme. All new cushions for white wicker chairs throughout sun porch which is the favorite room of all guests who rent. Sun porch also has new white blinds and ceiling fans. Newly built wood deck right at the water's edge for enjoying the peaceful feel of the lake and evening campfires on the patio furniture. New bathroom with upgraded tub/shower surround and new tile floor.

What makes this cottage unique

You won't find a cottage closer to the water than this property to enjoy your lake vacation! The peaceful feeling of sitting steps from the water is second to none! You could literally fish right out of the windows on the sun porch which is the most unique room in this cottage. The sun porch is the favorite room of every guest!

Cozy Cottage

We rented this cottage for Memorial day weekend 2016. The view was breathtaking, and the kitchen was a huge bonus. The patio was great, but if you have adventurous toddlers or small ones - you may need a leash; house is in/ directly on the water. We brought our dog as well; thought it would be difficult to walk him to relieve himself but the neighborhood was so friendly we really enjoyed that time (even made some friends). The lake itself is huge and there's a marina you can rent pontoons from (and easily dock right outside the door!). This was our first Memorial Day with our new baby and great friends and this cottage really helped make it special. Shawn (owner) was quick to respond, incredibly informative, keeps a beautiful home and was easily accessible if needed. Couldn't ask for much more from a rental!
