Awesome place to relax and have a vacation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with two other couples and we loved it. The home was spacious and the dock was wonderful in the 90 degree heat. The kitchen was perfect and had all the necessary utensils for cooking.

The owner was very communicative and made sure we had everything we needed to get into the house and feel prepared.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The lake views, especially at sunset were gorgeous! The house was very clean and well stocked, perfect for adults and kids. The owners were nice to deal with and I have no complaints. I would recommed this house to anyone looking for a peaceful place to relax. The fishing was good as well!

Fourth of July

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful escape! We arrived to a beautiful, very clean, and spacious "lake cabin". There was more than enough room for our family of five and the kids loved the spiral staircase. We spent hours playing in the water, took a few canoe trips enjoying the peaceful no-wake rule, watched movies every night and enjoyed a big family gathering for the Fourth of July! The fireworks were everywhere - felt like our own private show as we sat on the dock watching. Thanks again for such a wonderful stay!

The perfect lake vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two stay. The cabin is lovely and is more than well furnished in every room. Every room was sparkling clean when we arrived. With six of us, we enjoyed time together in the spacious and bright family room overlooking beautiful Diamond Lake. Yet we all had our privacy when we wanted it. Each of the three bedrooms was comfortable and cozy. The cabin was equipped with everything you could possibly need for cooking, eating, bathing, sleeping, and playing on the spacious deck, on the very nice dock, and in the water. We were concerned at first about not having satellite TV or Internet access. We very quickly discovered that it was a blessing. We didn't miss the noise and distraction of a blaring TV set. Instead we were able to watch any of a huge collection of DVD's on either of two wide screen TV's. When we wanted to access the Internet, we made the 8 minute drive to Newport to use any of several public wireless accesses. Without the distraction of TV and the Internet, we were able to enjoy more time on the deck watching the incredibly beautiful Diamond Lake sunsets. We also rented a ski boat, which we were abe to moor at the cabin's more than ample dock. The neighbors on both sides were very friendly and hospitable. We had a wonderful time as did our daughter and two little grand daughters. The two weeks went by way too fast. The experience was definitely worth every penny; we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Nice place with some drawbacks

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in July. Our group included 5 adults and 2 small children.

Pros: Everything in the cabin was in new condition. The kitchen was well-equipped and modern. The living area was spacious and comfortable. The views of the lake from the cabin and deck were gorgeous. The beach and swimming area was ideal for children. The lake bottom slopes very gradually away from the shore, so even small children can wade out a ways and splash in the water. The water near the shore was warm.

Cons: The cabin is right on a main road (Highway 2) and the road noise was very loud. The cabin did not have AC when we were there, and the bedrooms were stuffy and hot until after midnight when open windows finally cooled them off. But the open windows let in the road noise. So you were either too hot with the windows closed, or you had to endure the road noise with the windows open.
