About the property

4.5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 9, 325' Sand Shore, Picturesque SW views

This property is located about one-half mile off the public road on a private drive, then 600 feet down the tree-lined driveway to the luxury home on the lake. Much of this side of the lake borders the Chequamegon National Forest with opportunities to see many animals and birds on a regular basis. This is a residential neighborhood with homes spaced well apart from each other where the neighbors respect each other’s privacy.

The house faces southwest with stunning views of the lake and forest from every room and deck of the house plus spectacular sunsets each night from the privacy of your dock located on 335 feet of gorgeous sand shoreline. You can’t see a single neighbor from this special place. The sand is wide and long giving everyone plenty of room to play. The yard has a park-like setting with flower beds and raspberry patches surrounding the property.

The main floor consists of the master bedroom with hand carved log queen bed, private deck and large bathroom with shower and corner jetted tub. The open living space has a family room with a vaulted ceiling and floor-to-ceiling fireplace plus a wall of tall windows facing the lake. The full kitchen has stainless appliances, plenty of cupboards and counter space plus a large 4-stool island. A family-sized table with large windows on two sides rounds out the dining area of this open concept space where the entire family is part of the action. There is also a half-bath off the living area.

The main floor also has a four season porch with love seat and two rocking chairs as well as a small table for board games, cards or a romantic dinner. The entire corner of the house is surrounded by a large deck that overlooks the lake with sunset views and includes two patio tables, umbrellas and a number of chairs. There is also a large covered porch on the forest side of the house with peaceful views especially in the morning when the sun lights it. This porch has a small table to enjoy a quiet meal and two rocking chairs for the utmost in quiet relaxation. Countless hours are typically spent on the porches and decks.

An open stairway with hand-carved log railings takes you to the second floor. There is a small open office in the loft area overlooking the living space. There is also a full bathroom on this floor with tub and shower. The first large bedroom includes a hand carved log queen bed and is decorated in a bear theme with views of the lake and forest. The second large bedroom has a hand carved log king bed and is decorated with a wolf theme with views of the lake and yard. Off of the king bedroom is an 8’ x 8’ walk in closet that has a twin bed and frequently houses a young guest instead of clothes (thus the 4.5 bedrooms).

The walkout lower level has a bedroom with a hand carved log queen bed. This space also has a full bathroom with tub and shower, family room with fireplace and leather furniture. There is a small game room off the family room with a pool table and electronic dart board.

The yard only has a half dozen wide steps that get you down to the lake. There are two outdoor fire pits that make fires possible no matter the direction of the wind. A log swing and log chairs make for great family time sharing the days adventures around the fire. A small hill near the lake includes an open gazebo area surrounded by a flower garden with a table and chairs that make a great place to have breakfast or watch the sunset.

Use of a paddleboat, 12’ fishing row boat and aluminum canoe are included in the rental. Note: Saturday to Saturday rentals during Summer Peak.

About Mitch and Terri

Our family has been coming to the area for years and years and we have many relatives in the area. We built this custom log-sided executive home in 2002 and have enjoyed it with our extended family. Our children are out of college which means less time at the lake so we decided to share it with others.

Mitch and Terri purchased this house in 2002

Why Mitch and Terri chose Northern Wisconsin

The 335' sand beach is incredible. The 300 year old hemlock trees are amazing. Sunsets from the dock are a photo lover's dream. The lake is small enough to be private and quite yet large enough to take in some water sports. The house was built with an open concept in mind so the entire family is always part of the action.

What makes this house unique

The fishing on this lake is managed for large walleye and northern. You will see loons and eagles everyday. The birds go crazy by the feeders. Raspberries grow wild along the entire drive and private road which is great for hiking. The stargazing for shooting stars and the milky way is second to none. Did we mention the sand beach and sunset views?

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous home in a beautiful location. The home was so comfortable and the owners contacted us during our stay to make sure all of our needs were being met. Diamond lake sparkles just off of the property. Coffee in the enclosed porch and on the pier was my morning routine. Enjoyed the quiet and solitude. If you are looking for a vacation rental in this area, DO NOT hesitate to rent this home. It's a real treat to be able to rent a home of this quality. The only complaint we could have made is that "we had to leave".

Luxury in the Northwoods!

  • 5 of 5

The words that come to mind are first and foremost, privacy & tranquility. We literally saw one boat other than ours and met one other car in our entire 5 day stay! There is NO road noise whatsoever to be heard -- with the peaceful stillness being broken only by the calls of loons or whir of hummingbirds fighting to gain a spot at the feeder! The lake home is well laid out on 3 levels to ensure privacy for all but with warm and welcoming gathering areas as well. The slope to the lake is gentle and the stairs few and wide. Both the house and property are well maintained and beautiful. And we were even able to enjoy being outside with very little mosquito harassment thanks to the property having been safely treated prior to our arrival -- a huge plus! We rented a paddle board, kayak & small fishing boat and motor which were delivered to the dock prior to our arrival and used them, as well as the paddle boat provided, to explore and further enjoy the lake. We also took kayaks down the Namakegon river which was an amazing adventure -- and enjoyed a local farmers' market in Cable. An experience well worth repeating! We would definitely not hesitate to recommend this vacation rental!

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

4 generations of our family (ages 3 - 80) stayed at this beautiful home on Diamond Lake. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the beautiful house and even more beautiful property.

The house was comfortable and had the right amount of space for our party of 8 - the open main level was a nice gathering space where everyone could be together but not be crowded. Everything was clean and well-maintained and the owners left detailed instructions on where to find everything.

The property is very private and the yard has lots of little nooks to relax and enjoy the scenery. We swam in the clear lake, used the paddle boat & canoes provided, and had bonfires in the fire pit by the lake at night.

The property is surrounded by forest which makes for great privacy and scenery but definitely bring your bug spray as the mosquito's were intense at times, primarily morning and dusk.

The owners were very responsive and helpful when we had questions, and provided lots of suggestions on other things to do in the area if we wanted to venture out.

We would definitely recommend this place to others!

What a wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from Cable where we spent a wonderful week at Mitch and Terri's private paradise. Starting with them, what a first class couple and what a great treatment we had! Both were so welcoming to their home that our experience couldn't have been better. From the cozy reception when we opened the door with a nice bottle of Shiraz waiting for us with the keys, to their attention in giving us great hints of places to go and things to do. The house is amazingly well maintained. The decor is all that you'd expect from lake house. We could feel the memories that this wonderful couple have collected throughout the years with their lovely family. Nothing is too much, it is just a great family place. The lake is beautiful and the house secluded, making the overall experience really amazing. The deck at the lake is perfect for all day, the bonfire at the shore staring at the sunset is something we'll keep forever in our memories. In summary, if you really want to go to an amazing place, get some real rest and disconnect from this crazy world, you can't go wrong with the Winter's paradise.

Thank you Mitch and Terri for sharing with us your small piece of heaven!
