This was our 2nd summer in a row on Little Diamond Island, and it was even better this time.
Staying on the island is just the perfect experience for anyone who wants a outdoor/nature experience without having to sleep in a tent. The privacy you have here is really un-matched and makes it perfect for anyone looking to get away for EVERYTHING. The island is located in Wentworth Cove, which means it is out of the way from the main part of the lake. This means there's not a ton of traffic in the surrounding waters, so it remains peaceful and private. Occasionally there would be a small fishing boat or two near by, but they didn't stay for long.
The weather was much better for us this year (it was rainy/overcast a lot last year). It was sunny each day and there was a beautiful breeze for two out of the 3 days (I think it was left over from the hurricane). The swimming here is excellent for anyone who enjoys lake swimming. The water is super clean, refreshing and not too cold. I did all of my swimming right off the deck. It is a rocky area, so swimming shoes make it much easier. But this area is deeper and an overall nicer place to swim in my opinion.
As night falls, the island becomes so peaceful and romantic. Oil lamps and candles provide awesome natural light that turn the cabin into such a relaxing place. Perfect for reading a book, playing a game, or whatever else you want to do to pass the time. The moon was bright while we were there, and the reflection off the lake was stunning.
Overall, Little Diamond Island is a very special experience for anyone looking for a quiet getaway surrounded by nature. It is the perfect mix of nature and home. If you're looking for privacy, outdoor fun, nature and quality time with whoever you are vacationing with, this is a great place for you. My fiance and I will definitely be returning next year, and hopefully each summer after that.
