Description of the Pullman vacation home rental
Only 2.5 hours from Chicago, this quiet lakefront year round retreat on Upper Scott Lake offers the perfect setting for a family or group of friends looking to relax, play, and reconnect in an idyllic setting. This large 3 bedroom/2 bath home on 2 wooded acres is bright and airy and is tastefully decorated in a Country French theme. Enjoy stunning views of the lake and beautifully landscaped yard from a comfortable chair in the large living room or from the huge deck under the massive old oak trees, and watch the sun rise on the water from the pier. In the evenings enjoy a camp fire and the star-filled sky down at the lakefront. The large family room on the lower level is great for watching movies or playing games, and the sun room provides a quiet place to curl up and read a good book.

The fully equipped kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances, double oven and 5 burner gas range, microwave, large refrigerator and dishwasher. Dine at the large antique French table that seats 8, on the screened-in porch, or "al fresco" at the large custom-built country table on the spacious deck.

This is truly a four-season retreat: it is equally beautiful as the new growth emerges in the spring, in full summer splendor, as the colors change in the fall, and the quiet snow covers the ground in winter.

Weekly rates are for 7 nights. Check-in is Saturday at 3 pm; check-out is Saturday 11 am.
Area Information
Upper Scott Lake is a sparsely populated, quiet inland lake in the country, but it is close to many unique places and activities. Visit the award winning Fenn Valley Winery and the famous Crane's Orchards and Pie Pantry, both 6 miles away in Fennville. Or shop and dine in the quaint tourist towns of Saugatuck and South Haven, only 15 minutes away. Enjoy the annual Tulip Festival and Farmers Markets in Holland, only 25 minutes away. Play a few rounds at the many golf courses nearby, or enjoy downhill and cross country skiing in the winter.

Great little house

August 3, 2015

Lovely little house in a serene little lake. Nice wooded area. Houses are nearby, but it still felt secluded. Pros: Lots of room for 6 people. Nice new kitchen. The house seemed clean. Nice little lake with a row boat. 4 lifejackets were there too. We enjoyed boating and fishing. Lots of bluegill for the kids to catch. Caught a few bass too. The decorating was very nice. The beds were very firm and comfortable for us. The drive to Chicago wasn't bad, and was a nice day trip. A nice winery was nearby and we were only about 15 minutes from Lake Michigan. Cons: I was surprised the owner didn't send any kind of a contract or agreement prior to arrival. That was a red flag for me, but it all worked out. The internet was sporadic at first, until my son decided that the router was overheating from laying flat on the counter. Once we stood it on its end, we had no further problems. The only tv is in the basement level. Normally fine, but there was a strong mildew smell in that room. I'm guessing from all the recent rain, but there should have been a dehumidifier running. Also, the water had a strong smell of sulfur. Again, maybe due to all of the rain, maybe it's common in that area, or maybe they needed to change some filters, but for the price we paid, it should have been fixed. The linens were fine, except the towels in one bathroom were frayed, and the bath mat was threadbare. All of these issues were minor for us. Overall we had a very nice time. If we are ever in that area again, we would go back.

Relaxing Getaway

June 26, 2015

The French Rooster is a gorgeous remodel on Scott Lake. The layout of the home is absolutely stunning and so much love went into the design and decor of this vacation home rental. We always look for a nice place to get away from Las Vegas and reunite our family in the Midwest each year. This year we chose the French Rooster and were very pleased with our stay. The home is well stocked with cooking supplies, plenty of seating and several areas of the home to escape to read a book or just relax. The wrap around porch and screened in area allows for a place to just sit and enjoy a glass of wine, listening to the sounds of the woods. The lake area is nice, but you cannot see it much from the house. There is a nice fire pit and a big pier for fishing along with a small row boat. We didn't feel the lake was very inviting for swimming but it's beautiful for viewing and fishing. We had a great time with our family here. The only reason we are giving it four stars is because of a few of the amenities. We always make sure that there is wifi before we choose a location as my husband is self-employed and needs to do work, even on vacation. The wifi was not working when we arrived and neither was the washing machine. It took four days to get the wifi fixed and with limited cell service we did miss a few important calls/ emails. We just felt that for the amount of money the home is for the week, these types of issues should be cleared up before the home is rented. Wifi could have easily been checked out by the property manager after their recent storms, as it wasn't connected to a surge protector. We were notified about the washing machine beforehand but we were not going to change our plans for the small inconvenience--it was fixed by Wednesday. Just small issues but felt we should be honest as it's a very expensive, but delightful vacation spot! Pullman is a very small town. You have to drive about fifteen miles to the local amenities. But the French Rooster is a lovely spot for family time that is very close to some wonderful tourist destinations like South Haven, Holland, Grand Haven, Saugatuck and of course the Lake region! We highly recommend this beautiful property! You won't be disappointed! A lot of love went into the makeover of this property.

Lovely holiday

December 2, 2014

Our family spent a few days at Thanksgiving together at the French Rooster. It was a beautiful setting, and we had plenty of room to spread out and relax. It is a comfortable home, and one we would definitely stay at again.

Beautiful home with all the amenities. There was plenty of room, with lots of privacy. We could have easily brought more people. We had a wonderful White Christmas, and went dog sledding and cross country skiing on nearby trails.

Fantastic Lake home, close to towns!

August 19, 2013

My family of five (2 adults, three girls 4-10, and one dog) had a wonderful stay at the French Rooster. The house is beautifully decorated and perfectly maintained (and super comfortable couches!). The little lake is so peaceful and full of fish off the dock for the kids to catch.They loved swimming in it too, despite the lilly pads. The row boat was a nice surprise. With only a 15-20 minute drive ito Saugatuck or South Haven we enjoyed both towns and their beaches, ice cream parlors, boating and shopping. We highly recommend the Saugatuck Dunes ride. So much fun and gorgeous scenery. We were also able to rent a jet ski in South Haven which was brought over to South Beach so we could trade on and off with other riders in our group. We always enjoyed coming back to the French Rooster at the end of our day to relax, eat dinner, and build a fire down by the lake for s'mores. Such a great family vacation. We are hooked on Western Michigan and would definitely stay at the French Rooster again. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Very Peaceful Retrear

July 29, 2013

This is a very peaceful home on a quite lake and was a great get-a-way for our family. The house is clean and comfortable with a very nice kitchen and open concept living space. The bedrooms and baths are okay, but nothing special. The house is on a quite drive with a couple other homes, but we always felt alone. There is a very pretty yard and group of trees between the house and the lake. The firepit is a great place for a fire. The dock and row boat ae nice for fishing. The lake is small and shallow so the fish are not large, but between the family we caught bluegill, bass, perch, and crappie. This is a great place to introduce kids to fishing. This would be a five star review if there was a hot tub and better entertainment setup. The TV is old and inconvenient. The wi-fi works great in the kitchen and family area, not so well in other house locations. Very nice decks,screened porches and other outside spaces. Some outdoor furniture is damaged and needs to be repaired. Very close to South Haven and Saugatuck. We highly recommend Salt of the Earth in Fennville for a great dinner.

Summer fun in Michigan

September 18, 2012

We spent a wonderful week at this beautiful home. The property is beautiful. Very peaceful and private. Near enough to South Haven and Michigan farm stands and wineries. The house has everything you could want --- from a gourmet kitchen to cozy family room. We especially enjoyed the fire pit and the peaceful water. The only thing that would be a plus is the ability to rent a boat. Thanks also to Jill for her help before and during our stay. She was only a phone call away.

Very nice, quiet time with our family!!!!

September 4, 2011

We had a great time at this quaint little gem in the woods. Very quiet and relaxing vacation for us and our grown children and twin grandsons. This cottage is every thing the pictures show and more. We loved the peace and quiet and had fun at the county park, West Side Park in Allegan County on Lake Michigan for Lake activities. We highly recommend this home and would go back in a "heart beat". The owners were very flexible and easy to work with on dates and terms of use.

Girl Friend Get Away

November 9, 2010

What a beautiful place! The layout was perfect for our get away. The house is well furnished and supplied with kitchen tools. We celebrated a 50th birthday by cooking and hanging out for a long weeeknd. The only disappointment was that the beautiful fireplace was not functional. We would have loved to have a roaring fire. Everything else was perfect. The place is very clean and neat. If you have a family, the bedrooms are away from the main living space, so it's easy to let others sleep when others are awake. I would definitely rent this place again.

Wine Festival

September 14, 2010

There were 5 of us for a rainy wine festival weekend. The cottage is beautiful and large enough that everyone had their own space. The view of the lake is fantastic. A couple of the ladies enjoyed the cottage so much, they are looking into renting it for a week in the summer.
