Fit 7 adults comfortably, 4 bed bunk room. Full size bed room and king bedroom. 3 separate living rooms 2 with tvs. 2 blocks from the beach. We blew a fuse ironing and hair dryer, but got an answer right away. 1 bathroom has a shower and 1 a bath tub. Huge deck with 2 grills. Lake was not busy at all. Very clean lake.
We had a great stay at Diamond Lake. The place was terrific--a rustic place complete with all the necessities: grill, large kitchen, great yard for games, and an outdoor fireplace. It's about a block walk from the lake and marina--we rented a boat from the marina for the week and spent our days swimming and evenings eating dinner on the pontoon.
A couple of notes about the place: it's much bigger than even the pictures indicate. We had more than enough space for 3 couples and a 1-year old child.
The front porch was great to just relax and read, and because it was enclosed, you didn't have to worry about bugs. The rear deck was also terrific.
Overall, we loved the space. It was quite a "classic" place--it had all the qualities of a rustic place while having been incredibly well maintained and in great shape. We're hoping to return next year!
We found everything we could possibly need. The beds and pillows were all comfortable. The deck was large and it was great to eat dinner out there. The screened in porch was a dream, with plenty of spaces to sit. We had great weather, and enjoyed the quiet, the beach, the boat rentals, and the yard. We bought our bocce ball set, and had a few games out there. You were so great at getting back to us any time we had a question. We had great walk along the lake streets - good exercise. We would definitely go back again. Even the mosquitoes were minimal. We all enjoyed ourselves immensely and the wedding we attended on the lake was gorgeous. Thank you so much for sharing your place with others. It was all we could ask for and more.
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.
we stayed at this house this past weekend with some friends and had a great time. The house had so much land a beach in walking distance. The owners are really nice and helpful. They made sure we had everything we needed. We definitely recommend staying here.
I can't imagine a better play to stay for a vacation at Diamond Lake. Huge front porch, huge back deck, huge side yard, plenty of space inside for all our guests (6 adults, 3 kids). Historic home was comfortable, fun and well maintained. Owners are a pleasure. Within easy walking distance of the marina. Diamond Lake is great fun!
Our home is located just one block from the Park Shore Beach on gorgeous Diamond Lake.
