Description

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.

The panoramic view from the inside wall of the lake side windows is easily enjoyed from all 3 levels of the house. 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 it all, there is a queen pull out sofa bed in the living room, which makes KC's sleeping arrangements very manageable and comfortable for a party of 12 or less. (linens included)

After dinner why not take in a game of pool, while watching TV (3 TV's--living room, game room, and the Buford Room -master BR) or listening to your favorite tune in the Game Room?

Your boat or watercraft is welcome at KC's 40' x 4' wide aluminum dock (no watercraft or boat is provided) or a second 40' x 3' wide aluminum dock. The shallow shoreline is inviting to play, swim, or go fishing right off the docks. If you like swimming, fishing, skiing, wake boarding, 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 access, allows you all of this and more. (Kayaks included) The main public access is situated directly across the lake from KC's.

Conveniently located just minutes from I-80-90, and situated perfectly between Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana, it is an absolutely perfect place for meeting up with family members or friends coming from all directions.

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!

Working on a job in the area? KC's provides a home like environment for those working away from home, and wanting all of the comforts of home, plus more! :)

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.

Truly, Lake Diane is beautiful whatever season you choose to stay!

KC's is totally 'non smoking.' Receptacles 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. KC's water is a well system, and is filtered, softened, and tastes great! KC's offers high speed wireless Internet.

KC's 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. I would like to share my home with you!

“Great place for a large Family”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2022

We had an absolute blast at Katrina’s place! It was perfect for our large group of 10 and our dogs! There was plenty of space if someone needed to get away from the chaos for a little bit too.

Response from the owner 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.

Response from the owner 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.
