While we didn’t get to enjoy the home as much as we would’ve liked because we were in town for a wedding, what an awesome place!! Large enough gathering space for your family and what an awesome backyard!! It has a cute little beach, I can only imagine how fun it would be in the summers. I recommend this home to anyone looking for a fun family weekend!
Well we almost cancelled due to a very bad review. Glad we stuck with it and NO, NEVER MET OR KNEW TOM AND MARY JO prior to this. First off yes it is an old home and I would guess one of the first on Diamond. Having said that Cold Central air, couple of window units in boat house and upstairs bedroom. Just suffice it to say the home was FINE. After all it is a lake cottage. Now for the important stuff. The property is loaded with everything you could possibly want and Tom and Mary Jo were wonderful. The kitchen is so well stocked you only need your food. Many condiments, paper towels, paper plates as well as ceramic. Two tables and chairs for 8 person seating. Then there is the boat house with all the toys. Pull tubes and floats and life vests and it's own refrigerator and bathroom. We took our own boat and used it all. When not using the boat it was on a boat lift provided. Pier was long and NICE and 10 of us used it well. Late in the year and water and weather co-operated. Dang, almost forgot the paddle boat, 2 person kayak, and also a 1 person kayak. Rental is only for 8 and that's what we had BUT had a couple visitors for add on that slept on floor. They did not care. Two flat screens, 1 in family room and one in OUR master bedroom. Comcast cable as well as internet. Comcast internet speed was 170 MBS. The two picnic tables on patio were used for a family crab boil and THAT premium gas grill I almost stole. Left side is LP and right side is charcoal. Owner stocked the place with firewood and spare LP tanks, fishing poles and some tackle, bicycles and my god folks I could go on and on and should with that crappy review. Let me just say this. NO it's not a 5 STAR hotel / resort. It is a 5 star cottage rental. We took so much that we did not even unpack or need as it was already there. Finally we plan on going back next year for a longer stay if it still available. Thanks Tom and Mary Jo for a wonderful place.
