We stayed a week after the July 4th holiday and goodness we were impressed by this cottage. Since it was built in 1891 it had tons of character and was surprisingly quite big (there are 3 living rooms). There were 9 people staying at this cottage and there was plenty of room for all. There is a large side yard that can be used for just about anything (games, tents, smores, etc). The back porch was perfect size for all to gather as well.
Here are the highlights if you are considering this place:
- Great location, very short walking distance to the marina where you can rent boats, SUPs, wake boards, etc. Also just a short drive is a grocery store and rite aid. There is a private beach that you can also use while staying here is is perfect for little ones as it's quite shallow.
- Extremely clean, we were very impressed with how clean this entire cottage was. The place was immaculate! They also had many items that you would normally need to purchase for other rentals (like dishwashing detergent, condiments, etc)
- The owners are very kind and very attentive. We had several phone interactions with the owners Jeff and Margie and they were also very helpful.
- The lake, wow! Beautiful Diamond Lake is a perfect place for fishing (we caught quite a few different kinds), for swimming and relaxing with kids there is a large sandbar for hours of fun and of course the wake boarding was awesome due to the rather large size of this lake.
We have already started to plan for a trip back next year.
