Great rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family very much enjoyed our stay at diamond Lake! Our host Mike was very accommodating and friendly and checked with us on a regular basis to make sure we had everything we needed. Our stay was the top floor honeymoon suite. I had beautiful views on the top deck of the lake and we very much enjoyed using the deck to relax, eat our meals, grill, lay in the sun or just read. The pictures do not do location justice the furniture is even nicer than what is shown in the pictures and more updated. It is really a nice retreat and a nice place to have a vacation. We also rented the pontoon boat and it added a lot to our vacation. Thank you Mike for the hospitality we had a great week!

We just came back from this relaxing place. My kids loved this suite on the Diamond Lake. They said this is a better place than Wisconsin Dells. Great escape from busy Chicago.

Fantastic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was wonderful! The owner, Mike, was very accommodating to my husband and me. The property is beautiful and situated right on the lake. The rental space itself was extremely clean and well-kept with all new furniture and an updated design. There is a spacious deck off the back overlooking the lake. I feel that my husband and I got more than our money's worth, and we look forward to returning in the future!

Diamond Lake is located in the Center of Newaygo County. This Lake has Historical Lineage Dating back to the Algonquin Indian Nations. Historical Battle Fields were reported by the first French Settlers. Indian artifacts surface each season as Farmers roll the soil for new crops. Surveyors and Engineers find relics from Spanish Explorers dating to the 1600's.

It is known that the Original Foundation of the Eagle's Nest was constructed on the lower bank within the deep sand. Within feet of this home was a natural artesian well that flowed crystal clear spring water year round.

Over the next Several Decades this building was raised to it's current location to include two stories. Today, the Eagle's Nest is a Favored Vacation 'Hot Spot' for World Wide Travelers. Operating three season you may wish to visit: HomeAway
