Description from owner

Enjoy gorgeous sunsets overlooking the main bay of beautiful Lake Diane (Hillsdale Co., MI), while lounging on the spacious deck at your beautifully decorated home away from home --KC's Point of View. For you shade lovers, just extend the remote controlled awnings over the deck (provided winds are calm); sit; relax; read a book, and just chill. If you want to mix it up, there are 4 outdoor sitting areas; the deck, the stamped concrete patio under the deck or another one next to the entry doors; and the lake deck landing. There are so many places to relax!

Sitting around a small bonfire is so social and KC's offers you the opportunity to do just that when the festivities of the day are done. Some wood is provided.

The panoramic view from the inside wall of the lake side windows is easily enjoyed from all 3 levels of the house. Also, the large, fully equipped kitchen, luxurious sofas, large flat screen TV (Direct TV + extras), 4 bedrooms plus a loft, 3 full baths, and a game room, allows your family to comfortably enjoy your time at pet friendly KC's. With 3 queen bedrooms (the Buford Room [master], the Princess Room, and the Gypsy Room); 2 twin beds in the Loon Room, and a full bed, futon, and a day bed (2 twins) in The Loft, you have your choice of where to rest your head. On top of all of that, there is a queen pull out sofa bed in the living room, and another futon in the game room. So, all in all, KC's sleeping arrangements are very manageable and comfortable for a party of 12 or less. (linens included)

After dinner why not take in a game of pool, ping pong or foosball, while watching TV (3 TV's--living room, game room, and the Buford Room -master BR) or listening to your favorite tunes on either of the 2 stereo systems (1 in LR and 1 in Game Room)?

Your boat or watercraft is welcome at KC's 40' l x 4' w aluminum dock (no watercraft or boat is provided) & the shallow shoreline is invitiing to play, swim, or go fishing right off the dock. If you like swimming, fishing, skiing, wakeboarding, boating, jet skiing, kayaking, sailing, or just floating--you have chosen the right place, as Lake Diane's 400 acre all sports lake, with public acccess, allows you all of that plus more. The main public access is situated directly and conveniently across the lake from KC's.

What about you Nascar fans? KC's is a wonderful place to choose when attending the famous Nascar races at the MI Int'l Speedway in Brooklyn, MI. It's just about a short hour away. Stay here and enjoy both worlds in one stop!

Do you like being outdoors in the fall & winter? KC's is ideal for hunters, ice fishermen, snowmobilers & other activities as well. Hillsdale Co. is known to have some of the best deer hunting in MI, and is also known for its excellent fishing.

Visiting Hillsdale College? KC's is just a short drive south of Hillsdale, MI. Again, why not have the best of both worlds and stay on the lake--no matter the season!

Nestled in the Amish country, KC's is worth the easy drive from Toledo, OH; Fort Wayne, IN; Chicago, IL; Lansing, Detroit, Ann Arbor, Monroe, MI, etc., being conveniently situated in MI but bordering the states of OH & IN.

Some of the pictures depict a winter wonderland, but in a couple short months Lake Diane will transform into a summer time place full of fun in the sun.

KC's is totally 'non smoking.' Recepticles are provided outdoors for extinguishing cigarettes, etc. If smoking occurs indoors, additional fees will be assessed.

KC's is not child proof or handicap friendly. There are no socket covers, child gates for steps, baby beds, etc. Also, KC's water is a well system, therefore, it 'may' (not normally) have a slight ordor, but is filtered, softened, and tastes great! The cell phone coverage is spotty, therefore, KC's offers unlimited long distance phone calls and wireless Internet with a wireless printer.

If you want to bring your small pet (under 40#s) KC's includes a 10'x10' fenced in outdoor dog kennel and dog house situated on the property which can also be used, if needed. KC's offers so many amenities--just too many to mention!

KC's Point of View is brand new to the rental world having been used as our second home for years. It is well equipped, beautifully decorated, and large enough not to be just another lake cottage, but more like 'your' home on the lake.

Book today and experience for yourself a long weekend, a week, or even a month or two at lovely KC's Point of View. We want to share our home with you!

Take a day and visit Shipshewana, IN and see for yourself how the Amish and Mennonites live, & enjoy a great meal at the Blue Gate Restaurant while you are there. Swing past Pokeagon State Park, Angola, IN where there are always many activities. Have dinner at Timbuktoo's, Fremont, IN, or stop at the Amish Bakery in Camden, MI. There's also the Sports Bar in Camden that's good too. For you car buffs; the Auburn Cord Dusenberg Automotible Museum is not a far drive, and neither is the Gilmore Car Museum, Hickory Corners, MI (Battle Creek), or the Studebaker National Museum in South Bend, IN. What about you race fans? KC's is the perfect retreat during race season as the MI Int'l Speedway is just an hour away in Brooklyn, MI. It goes without saying, but this area has great hunting (one of the top counties in MI for # of deer), fishing (perch, walleye), swimming, sunbathing, boating, water skiing, wakeboarding, jet skiing, snowmobiling, sledding, biking, and hiking are all just outside the door, with restaurants, golfing, horseback riding and other activities just minutes to a 1/2 hour away. If you like wine tasting tours, you are in the right place. Several wineries are conveniently located within a half hours (+/-) drive (Satek and Briali Wineries in Fremont, IN; Stoney Ridge in Bryan, OH; and Cherry Creek Cellars, Albion, MI), as well as the outlet mall for the shoppers in your group just outside of Fremont, IN--you must stop at the Pickle Factory outlet store, and you can even take a tour of the pickle factory an hour or so away. Sauder Village is just down the toll road I-80/90 (which is very convenient) What about stopping in at Wild Winds Buffalo Preserve, Fremont, IN? For those history buffs, you will not want to leave until you have visited the local Hopewell Indian Burial Mounds just a short 15 minute away with the tri-state marker and Lake Las Su An Wildlife perserve a little further on down the road in Ohio. Go for lunch at The Hunt Club in Hillsdale, MI, but you can not leave until you have stopped in at H.J. Gelzer & Son Furniture Store, just a block away. You might think they are just a furniture store, but-- oh my -- they are so much more. The ladies will love touring the 3 floors of kitchen, gifts, furnishings, pictures, and so much more. But when it comes right down to it, you will probably just want to stay put at KC's and enjoy the relaxing, laid back atmosphere -- read a book, lounge on the deck, play a game of pool or ping pong, float in the lake, fish off the pier, wade in the shallow water next to the shoreline, or just sit and sip your favorite drink and enjoy the view. KC's is just plain comfortable and offers a spectacular view of the lake from just about any angle.

“The Murphy/Auten Summer Retreat”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2016

Had a wonderful retreat for our family. Very clean and well stocked. Beautiful view of the lake - morning sunrise and evening sun sets were beautiful. Saw two Eagles and an Osprey, a doe and two babies - they were bonuses.

“No regrets”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2016

This place was large, nice deck, lots of sleeping space, we were not disappointed, nicely stocked kitchen and bathrooms. Neighbors could have been a little nicer. We had a very enjoyable vacation. Katrina was great to work with. Wouldn't mind coming back next year.

“Very comfortable home for large family”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2015

Everyone had space to sleep and hang out. The house was very well equipped in the kitchen and baths. There was no real beach but the water was very shallow off the dock we just jumped in. We had a great time.


Reviewed 14 May 2014

This lake house is even better than it appears in the pictures. The yard and the lake are bigger. The layout of the home is welcoming and comfortable for a large group. The kitchen is well equipped for home cooking. All the surprises were up and we would definitely stay here again.

“Very Nice”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2014

All in all, the house had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend away - Beautiful views, seclusion, and a very nice and spacious interior. Would surely stay again

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your nice comments! I am happy that you had a nice time and look forward to your return visit!


Reviewed 24 Sep 2013

Our family enjoyed our stay here. It was so nice to get to spend some time on the beautiful lake. The owner is good to work with and is quite clear on her expectations. The house is very comfy and we were all able to relax.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your review! You only stayed such a very short time and I just hope you come back to visit soon and stay longer! You were great to work with too, and I so very much appreciate you as a renter! I am so glad that you had a good time, as sometimes it is hard when you only stay just a couple of days. You get settled in and then have to pack up to leave, so stay for awhile next time--it would be great! Thanks again for your kind words! Best regards, Katrina Cheema

“All is as advertised.”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2013

Very nice, quiet setting on a good lake. Our Ft. Wayne children and grandchildren came for a visit. It's good! Not very close to stores. Plan ahead.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your kind comments and for your rental! The information I provide concerning how close stores are to my home is very helpful in your planning phase, with the closest grocery store being only 15 min. away in Pioneer, OH. Also, I provide suggestions to my renters just prior to their arrival about where to stop for food or supplies before arriving at the lake dependent from which direction they are traveling. Again, I certainly appreciate your rental and your comments.
