Escape the hustle and bustle of city life and relax in a beautiful wooded setting. This year-round 5-bedroom, 2-bath lakefront retreat sleeps 11 and is situated on Upper Scott Lake, just 2.5 hours from Chicago and 3 hours from Detroit.
The extensively renovated cottage is attractively decorated with countryside charm, making you feel immediately right at home. Upper Scott Lake Retreat is perfect for any and all vacations, from families with children staying for a week to groups of old friends rekindling their relationships over the weekend in a serene country setting.
Enjoy water activities or just watch the swans from a chaise lounge on the lakeside deck. A fire pit is the perfect place for roasting marshmallows while watching the sun set, or telling ghost stories while stargazing the spotless skies. For those chilly autumn and winter days, the dining room has a great view of the lake. There are books, games, and kid-friendly videos for the whole family to enjoy. The large recreation room has a pool table, ping pong table, and wide screen HDTV. Enjoy your meals in our newly re-designed and fully-equipped kitchen and dining area, or on the screened-in porch overlooking the lake and beautifully landscaped backyard.
Summer brings the fun of boating, swimming, picnicking, and relaxing. The autumn colors are spectacular around the lake and in the surrounding area. Enjoy the area's winter sports like skiing, sledding, cross country skiing, and ice skating. Spring brings the lovely colors of the flowers and leaves bursting to new life, invigorating your soul and mind after the long winter.
The cottage is 10-15 minutes away from Crane's Orchards and Dutch Farms, famous for delicious pies and fruit picking. On the way to the orchards is the Fennville Winery, offering tours and wine tastings. If you like antiquing, it does not get better than this - there are many antique stores within 20 minutes, either in South Haven, Allegan, Douglas and Saugatuck or along Blue Star Highway. In the summer dune rides are a blast and the South Haven beaches are gorgeous. Go fruit picking for cherries, blueberries, raspberries and apples in nearby orchards. Art galleries in the area offer wonderful selection to take home as souvenirs. Take your canoes and kayak to different lakes and rivers - but don't forget your paddles and life-jackets!
Upper Scott Lake is only 15 minutes from downtown South Haven or Saugatuck, and 25 minutes from Holland.

Reviews for this vacation home rental in Pullman, Michigan
Channahon, Illinois, USA
Our best family trip to date!
August 14, 2015
I'm afraid I cannot fully express how perfect this rental home was. We are a family of eleven (grandparents, children and their children). This home gave us a perfect get away. We had a great time - from the pool table, ping pong, to the deck and screened porch, fire pit, also a canoe. What more could a vacation want. We enjoyed it all. Even though there is much to see and do in this area, we were just happy resting and enjoying the great beach here at the house. Sandy, sunny and shaded too. We said to each other why go anywhere when we have this beach and all we need right here. And so we stayed. The yard is very large and quite beautiful and the house is also large, beautiful and so well equipped. Our grandkids could never be bored here. All of us from the 3 yr old on up enjoyed our stay here and I attribute that to this house, the grounds and the way it is equipped ( I get the feeling that the owner wanted us to have a great time - and that person succeeded.) The morning we left I was playing a violin concerto on my phone (since we had free wi fi) and my 5 yr old grandson said "that song is how I feel, sad to leave this house". I just hope we can make it back for another stay.

We enjoyed a great week! Weather was perfect, water was warm, and the fish were biting! Enjoyed having early morning coffee on the screened in porch and the deck. Grandchildren loved the sandy beach and shallow waters.
Great weekend rental
June 23, 2015
My large extended family stayed here for a long weekend. We all were impressed with the rental. The house was spacious with lots of room to spread out. We enjoyed eating at the dining room table that sat all ten of us! The backyard is huge with room for throwing football, playing catch, and other yard games. The little ones in our group liked the little beach and played in the sand all day long! All the guys in our group fished off the dock and also we all took turns going out in the canoe! The town of pullman didn't have much to offer in our opinion, but we did go to south haven and saugatuck which is only a short drive away ( about 15 minutes or so). Overall it was a nice house to stay at, with lots of room. The kitchen was nice to cook meals in, gas grill is provided. There is a large deck right off the back of the house overlooking the lake. Weather was great during our stay so we didn't get much use of the pool table and ping pong table, but if weather was crummy they would have been very useful for entertainment! The only suggestions that we left with were very minimal things, trim the trees up the drive, a rail at the back steps off the deck would be nice, and also a light over the dining room table would have been nice at night to play cards etc.. We would for sure rent here or from this owner again!

8 guys stayed here for a bachelor party. It couldnt have went any better. The house was very accomadating. Plenty of room for all of us and then some. The fishing on upper scott lake was great during our stay.
Wonderful vacation spot!
December 2, 2014
We had a fantastic time staying at this house and intend to stay again. There is plenty of space to host a big group for dinner, we sat more than 10 at the table. The rooms are placed far enough apart so that people could nap, sleep and play all at the same time. There is a fantastic family room where you can play pool, ping pong and watch a movie. We used the yard to play catch, roast smores in the fire pit and hang a pinata! .5 miles down the road is La Esperenza market which sells traditional Mexican products to include pinatas and the candy to fill it! Run by a cute husband and wife team this was a fun adventure to go on when people got restless, otherwise town has one market. Overall we really enjoyed our time there and both the owner and house manager were very friendly helped us deal with arrival and departure changes. Only recommendation would be to get a dishwasher.

we spent 3 rainy days on the lake and it was wonderful! The house accommodates all 8 of us without stepping on each others toes. Plenty to keep us busy rain or shine. We were able to squeeze in a canoe trip at sunset before the rains came. Will definitely return!!!

We had such a wonderful time at your home. Is had everything we needed. We will be back next year! Thank you

Was very pleased. The minute we walked in we could tell the house was very clean. The bedrooms were large, especially the master bedroom. Everyone loved the game room!! The big backyard was great for the kids to run around and the fire pit was used every night to make smores. I would recommend this rental!!
July 15, 2014
this home was very clean and a great place for a vacation. there were 14 of us and it was very comfortable. the ping pong and pool table added to the fun and the fire pit were a huge success. everyone in the family enjoyed themselves and we would rent this house again.

What a Wonderful Find!
June 24, 2014
We rented this house on the lake for our family vacation, including my husband, myself, our daughters, their husbands and our granddaughter. It looked good online, but exceeded all expectations in real life. The owner is a very nice woman and easy to work with. The house was clean, well appointed and in great shape. The entire place is set up to meet everyone's needs. There is a lovely sand play area for small children, many Little Tykes outside toys both there and on the sand beach, and ample room both inside and out. We had a mixed weather week with both gloriously sunny weather and rain. No matter, there is plenty to do. The game room made a wonderful spot to hang out at night once the baby was in bed. We watched movies, played pool, ping pong and did played music and did karaoke. (We brought instruments and computers with us.) Another great feature was the in house washer & dryer. It was so nice to be able to go home with clean laundry after a week of fun. The wi-fi worked great and having a phone at the house proved very handy since NONE of us had phone service even with various providers. We are planning to make this our regular vacation spot. Can't say enough good things about this place. We all had a wonderful time!
Wonderful extended family getaway
June 9, 2014
What a great find...our extended family of 9 enjoyed the beautiful 2 acres of peace/quiet on this private/peaceful lake, complete with plenty of bedrooms for all our needs, and lots of things to do inside/out, regardless of whether it rained or not (firepit, canoe, private manicured beach, yard/beach toys, ping pong table, pool table, lots of reading/activity materials for all ages). Our littlest 2 1/2 year old grandson caught his first fish--very exciting for "Dramma and Drampa!" This is all just 20 minutes from the wonderful beach on Lake Michigan in the carming town of South Haven, which we enjoyed as well while staying there. Car enthusiasts will also enjoy, as we did, the Gilmore Car Museum nearby--300 vehicles on 90 acres--nice complex indeed--a hidden automobile enthusiast treasure. Kitchen/eating area a little small, but otherwise--perfect! Now, we just need to decide when we can come back!
Fun Weekend Get Away
October 29, 2013
The house is in a beautiful setting with huge backyard and lake view. It is very spacious for a large group and child friendly. The added addition of the pool table and table tennis made the stay even more fun. The only thing I would have changed is warmer weather.

We had a great time at the lake house. Plenty of room for the kids to run around. Loved the fire pit. We had a fire several nights and got to roast smores. The kids all fished off the pier and caught a lot of little fish. Over all it was a great week.

Special Weekend at Pullman
October 11, 2012
My sister's and I got together at this great house for a long weekend. There were 8 adults that stayed and we were quite comfortable with the sleeping arrangements available. The house is very spacious with lots of room to spread out. We stayed in April and the weather was a bit chilly and rainy so we didn't get to enjoy the outdoors as much as we would have liked. We did however get to use the fire pit one evening. Firewoood was not provided but the neighbor had a stack of wood that was convenient and available to use for a fee. The house was well stocked with everything that we needed for a relaxing and enjoyable weekend. The house was clean and neat and the furniture comfortable. Elizabeth went out of her way to have things ready for our weekend. She is a pleasure to work with. We plan to stay there again in the future.

This is the second time we have stayed in this home and are already planning our next visit. It is the perfect size/layout for a group of friends or family. Our five year old loved the beach, books and puzzles. There is plenty of communal space and yet it provides ample opportunity to seek solitude. There is a large deck, rec room, screened in porch and a great fire pit. Randy next door provides wood for the fire for a minimal fee. We love the Saugatuck/Douglas and South Haven areas and this is close to both. Cranes Pie Pantry is a short drive away as are the most beautiful strech of beaches I have ever seen. Just a great, clean, well appointed launching point for all West Michigan has to offer. We received our damage deposit back in less than a week as well. Great owner, care taker, and housekeeping.
July 1, 2012
The house was just what we needed for our large family of adults and children. Something to do for everyone! Beach was full of toys for the kids to keep busy...even a big sandbox up by the house. Enjoyed our time there!!!
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. The best way to show your appreciation is to share your positive experience with your friends and family, so please spread the word! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us, and we hope you will stay with us again very soon :)

The high school girlfriends get together every year, usually in Florida, but since most are from the Detroit area, we decided to try Michigan. I happen to find this house on line and it seems to have been the find of the century! Everyone loved it!! The house was the perfect size for 8 of us, it was clean and well appointed. The quiet lake setting was just beautiful. We will definitely be back!!!

Girls Weekend Away

This house is lovely and exactly like the pictures. It is a nice house with 5 bedrooms and enough beds for 10 people. The huge TV and sectional were nice! The kitchen has a mini-keurig, which was convenient, they even provided the k-cups. The kitchen is a little cramped for preparing meals, etc but still workable. The dishes were a little mix and match, but fine. The screen porch was very nice for dining outside but still under cover. If you're looking for a quiet place to get away...this is your place. It was VERY quiet. The heat was nice and warm, and the upstairs bathroom is HUGE. We spent a day in South Haven and watched the sunset on the beach at Lake Michigan, only about 15 minutes away. Very scenic in the fall. We felt for the price, we hit the jackpot. Thanks!
Relaxing and serene.

We rented the Lake front home for three days. It is a great value! The house is large and spacious. My sisters and I used the house for a sisters retreat and it was wonderful. It was clean and more than sufficient in space for our needs. Plenty of beds so that we each had our own room The game room hosted ping pong games. There is also a pool table and a new leather couch with a large flat screen TV. The lake is clean and peaceful. We would feed the fish and the ducks from the pier. We enjoyed the fire pit in the evenings, just make sure to bring firewood. The grounds are beautiful lots of trees, flowers and shrubs. There is a large deck off the back of the house and a large screened in porch off the side of the house. The area has a lot to offer also. We visited South Haven, a few of the local wineries, farm stands, u pick farms and Saugatuck. All a convenient drive from the house. We would love to rent the house again and highly recommend the property.

Family loved it
September 20, 2010
We really enjoyed or time in western Mi. We attended a county fair, visited local shopping areas in Holland,Saugatuck, and South Haven and really enjoyed bonding as a family around the outdoor fire-pit. Six white swans would swim up to the dock in the early AM and the property itself was very clean and efficient for our needs. Thank you for a wonderful week The Crites Family
Perfect for a family with small children
July 14, 2010
I cannot say enough good things about this place. My kids shrieked when they saw the play room and game room. Stuffed animals, dolls, games, books, they were truly torn between swimming in the lake and staying in to explore. The lake was great, warm and shallow enough for my young ones (ages 6, 4 and 3). We also enjoyed the canoe and soft-sided boat. And, the pictures don't do the place justice. It's clean, beautiful and huge. Plus, we were only 15-25 minutes from either South Haven or Saugatuck. We loved being close enough to enjoy them, but far enough to be away from the chaos and parking issues. I would highly recommend this to anyone, especially those with small children. It was a truly wonderful vacation.
Had a great 30th birthday!!
October 28, 2009
The house was amazing!! My friends and I had a great time. We even discussed coming back in the summertime since we didn't get a chance to enjoy the HUGE backyard due to the rain :( I reccomend this house to anyone looking to get away from the day to day chaos! We visited tons of wineries and everything was within 40 miles. 5 stars in my book. Brenda

Amazed at the value!
May 27, 2009
This cottage was SO much more than we expected. Our small family went to spend some time together and get away from our everyday lives and we were all able to do that. This location had much more space than we thought it would, the screened porch was super, the deck awesome, beautiful lakefront views from many rooms and just the sheer amount of space to "be" was amazing.
August 12, 2008
Very spacious living on Upper Scott Lake. Quiet and relaxing for all members of our family. Offered great fishing but we left the big ones. Many activities available in the area, especially enjoyed the day trips to South Haven. Would recommmend!
Great for kids
April 12, 2008
We really enjoyed our stay. The books, videos and toys really made our two 3.5 year old kids happy. Owner was very accomodating. Would definitely recommend this place or stay there again ourselves. The large yard was great for playing with the kids.
November 26, 2007
We loved the place, and hope to go back there soon! Beautiful, clean home in quiet, wooded area with great lake front. If you want to relax and you can live without tv, internet, phone, but want to enjoy time with your family, friends, and perhaps good book - this is the place to stay.

Beautiful location and very comfortable home. No dishwasher. No TV reception which was a refreshing change and just what we needed to truly get away from it all and relax. Would not hesitate to come again!!!
We enjoyed our time in MI. House was great as was the surrounding area. My grandson, who is almost 3, had an especially fun time, of course! The house is spacious, so there was lots of room for it and it worked out well.
Thanks very much...hope to return next year.

We stayed here for 3 days 2 nights with our 3 children and their 2 cousins. The house was clean, spacious and inviting. It rained for one of the days but it was good for fishing! We had a problem with our boat trailer and the maintenance guy next door Randy was very helpful and his friend was able to help us out. I would stay here again. We had a good time and so did our kids! Thanks!
We had a fine time at the beach house. The sand and shallow water were great for the grandkids. We were outside alot, but did enjoy the air conditioning as it was hot.
Thanks for all the info you sent me.
