House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 9 Sleeps
Located directly on Diamond Lake-this 3BR/2Bath home has a fenced
yard, 70' pier, and beds for 9. Located on the west side of the lake
with a bluff behind it leaves the water calm even on a windy day.
Diamond Lake is the largest inland lake in SW Michigan (it has a car
ferry over to a residential island). Diamond Lake is the ideal water
ski, fishing, or boating lake, with plenty of shoreline for
interesting sightseeing by boat. And because it is so large, it
rarely seems crowded with boats, even on summer weekends. This
3BR/2Bath(showers only) home is 2 hours from Chicago, 30 minutes
from South Bend, and 1 hour from Kalamazoo.
MBR has a Queen Pillowtop, second BR has 2 twins, third BR has a
double bed and a day bed with trundle, plus a queen Sleeper sofa in
the Great Room. Great Room has 14' redwood plank cathedral ceiling,
fireplace and ac unit at one end, kitchen at the other. Hardwood
flooring throughout. Sunporch faces the lake, with wrap-around deck
There is a patio and "sandbox" (used for bon fires or sun bathing) out by the lake. Room for vollyball
between the house and lake. Sandy bottom out chest deep; docking for
3 boats. Home is NOT wheel chair accessible.
Turn-key furnished, including linens, BBQ, etc. Several golf courses
within 15 minutes (2 within 2 miles).
About the Owner

Great location, very dirty!
I have been renting our Diamond Lake house out for several years now, and have had dozens of satisfied guests, as evidenced by the fact that about half are return visitors each summer. I live in Florida, and unfortunately, have not physically been to my cottage quite some time. I rely on a cleaning service, and obviously, they have let me down and let you down as well. What you describe is unacceptable. Somehow, the Cleaning Service never cleaned after the previous tenant prior to your stay. I do wish you would have contacted either me or the local Property Manager with your concerns on the first day of your stay, instead of waiting and enduring these unacceptable conditions.
My son and his wife are heading to the cottage in a few days to see what needs to be done, including adding sand to the “sandbox”. The winter weather and lake ice often play havoc with sand at the water’s edge. However, this area is used by some guests for a fire pit, so, as I mentioned to you before going, it might not necessarily be appropriate for toddlers.
Again, my apologies for the less than satisfactory experience.
