Dear Vacation Hopeful Reader, Please understand it's out of our control when other vacation rental sites post our cottage information. We only have a subscription with VRBO. Our calendar IS accurate, we are not renting it out this year. We wish you much luck in finding the perfect place for your vacation.
Welcome to Shavehead Lake. Here is where you'll find your home away from home in our cozy, two-bedroom cottage in southern Michigan.
The Diener Cottage is completely renovated, and with the 17 windows surrounding the cottage you're guaranteed an abundance of waterfront views and ample sunlight.
The open floor plan of the cottage allows the conversation to easily flow from the fully-equipped kitchen to the living and dining areas. French doors open wide into the spacious sunroom situated along the lakeside with table tennis, upright piano and a big comfy chair where you can finally catch up on that good book you've been meaning to read.
Outdoors you can sit back and watch the sunset while you roast a marshmallow or two over the fire pit located just a few feet from the water's edge. By day, you might enjoy some waterskiing or tubing in your own boat, dock provided, or perhaps, you'll just sit out under the tall willow tree and watch the swans swim by. And if none of that suits you, relax on the hammock inside the screened gazebo located perfectly to enjoy the gentle breezes and view the lake.
Shavehead Lake is the perfect location for your getaway as it's nestled in the woods that surround a 250 acre, spring-fed, all-watercraft lake. And for those who require more than just peace and quiet, the lake is only a short drive to a myriad of attractions sure to satisfy every member of the family.
So what are you waiting for? Isn't it time you booked your stay at the Diener Cottage? We'd love to have you visit.
Please Note: We give Saturday-to-Saturday/ 7 night rentals priority in our booking process. If we're within 30 days of a desired rental date and our calendar is still open, then we will fill it in with shorter rentals. We also limit stays to a single week. Answers to many FAQ's are listed on our website.

Hello, we're Lynn and Daniel Diener. We're co-owners and managers of the Diener Cottage. We love offering our family's cottage as a vacation-rental and we really love it. It is so fun meeting all the guests that have come our way, and we are looking forward to meeting this season's guests. This venture allows us to exercise our hospitality muscles; it's something we both enjoy. Daniel tends to be the maintenance guy and you might see him at the cottage on a Saturday, between guests, out mowing the lawn. Lynn is the one you're most likely to meet as she coordinates the rentals and often greets the incoming guests. When we're not at the cottage, we're at our home 30 minutes away caring for our three children and working at our 'real' jobs.
We chose Shavehead Lake (in Vandalia, Michigan) because it's a short drive from our house. It's close enough to get to in an afternoon but far enough that it feels like a getaway. It's a short drive to Chicago and other Michigan cities which makes it accessible to our guests. It really is an ideal location.
The Diener Cottage has some lovely qualities. It is located on a lake where most properties are owned by folks that live there year-round. This means the property is quiet. It's a little oasis nestled in the woods and on a lake, and while it feels very secluded, there are restaurants and theaters only a few minutes away. It's a very nice balance.
