Very quiet and relaxing getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the canoe and kayaks. Great fishing in the lake, we caught bass, bluegill, and perch. The kids lived the game room. One of the paddle boats had a steering mechanism that didn't work, but we enjoyed the other water craft. We will probably choose this destination again.

Excellent stay! Nice welcoming home with an extremely quiet and relaxing environment.

  • 5 of 5

Had great stay with our family. Plenty of games and activities provided on the property. The home sits in a secluded area that provided a nice relaxing environment. Limited options for swimming but great for fishing and a quiet get away. The whole family enjoyed our stay at Kelsey Lake.

Completely Satisfactory!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place because my brother had rented on Diamond Lake however, there was nothing available on Diamond in our price range. This cottage was lovely, actually much better than the one my brother had! It was a straight shot to Diamond Lake which is where we hung out most of the time. My husband did enjoy the fishing on Kelsey, but didn't catch much! We especially loved the game room where my neices/nephew were able to hang out. The place was very well supplied with kitchen tools, pans, etc and also had some extra toilet paper, dishsoap, etc. so we did not have to run to the store when we just arrived as we have had to do when renting other places. That was most appreciated! Very nice for our unique situation, we would certainly do it again. Thank you so much.

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in a well equipped and nice home in a very quiet neighborhood. The cottage had everything we needed. We enjoyed Kelsey Lake and used the paddle boat and the fishing boat every day. We also appreciated the game room in the pole barn.

Summer relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Once again we enjoyed our week of staying at the cottage. We had great weather, so inside games were not needed so much. Instead we enjoyed the fishing (!), paddle boat rides, swimming, badminton, Bocce` ball, and croquet, some of which we had brought with us. A couple of us also strolled through downtown Dowagiac. Thanks for the great opportunity to be by the lake enjoying nature and the amenities the cottage has to offer.
