About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

Location: Atwater, Minnesota USA (less than 1 hour from St. Cloud, less than 2 hours from Minneapolis/St. Paul, 12 miles from Willmar

Accommodations: Summer home, 3 bedrooms, 1½ bathrooms (sleeps 5-6)

Built in 1920, this privately owned summer home is a 1½ story cozy family getaway nestled amongst mature trees on a gentle hill with spectacular views of the water. The location is quiet and private with 170 feet of lakeshore on the north side of Diamond Lake and has a large grassy lawn for lawn games.

Enjoy coffee on the large porch and the sun rising on the lake. Watch loons, blue herons, and other birds feeding in the morning and evenings. Bring your boat and spend the days fishing for Walleye, Bass, Northern, or pan fish, walk down to the beach and swim (hard sand bottom), or enjoy other water sports. Sibley State Park is near by and the national award winning Little Crow Ski Team performs most Friday nights just 10 minutes away.

The cabin has a full kitchen, dining room with a antique table, chairs and buffet, living room with a gas fireplace for chilly nights and hot cocoa, a sunny breakfast nook to enjoy a lazy brunch, and 4 unique bedrooms; 3 upstairs (one bedroom does not have a window) and 1 downstairs. There is a 1/2 bath upstairs and a full bath downstairs. There are eating areas on both sides of the home; a patio on the backside and a large porch on the lake-side as well as several picnic tables for eating meals outdoors.

Come and enjoy the best lakefront property on Diamond Lake.

About Tim or Karen Johnson

We want to share our beautiful lake home with others that haven't had a chance to be able to stay at a private lake home and appreciate the chance to kick back without neighbors seeing all that you do.

Tim or Karen Johnson purchased this house in 2000

Why Tim or Karen Johnson chose Minnesota

We vacationed here every summer with our children. The beach is a hard sand bottom and the water warm for great swimming and skiing. The lake had good fishing, and was great for boating, swimming, and lake fun.

What makes this house unique

Watch sun or moon rise from shore of lake, great walking paths just outside of cottage. Forth of July fireworks can't be beat. Property is 300 feet wide so lots of privacy, and room for picnics and lawn fun. Over 48 mature oak trees for shade and keeping cool. Just 15 minutes from Willmar where shopping, eating, movies, golfing, and sightseeing are great!
