White Oaks Haven is set on a large, private, half-wooded lot in rural Lee Township. Private dock and beach access to nearby Upper Scott Lake is included with this home, as well as unrestricted [free] use of our canoe AND kayak rental is also available for reasonable daily or weekly rates with advance registration and pre-payment. White Oaks Haven is situated on a spacious corner lot that previously operated as a hobby farm, and was designated as a National Wildlife Habitat because of its abundance and a great variety of organically-grown plants, flowers, bushes, and trees. The home sits on a large, grassy lawn, and comes complete with an outdoor fire pit and hot tub, which sits adjacent to a sun-soaked 3-season porch with beautiful river rock flooring.

The home has five bedrooms and two full baths, as well as an open-concept living/dining/kitchen area that includes a full kitchen with island and ceiling fan, a comfortable living room with an electric fireplace and TV lounge area, a dining room with an extra-large dining set, and three-season porch boasting foosball and air hockey tables, with adjacent hot tub. Our entire home, yard, and nearby private beach access are ready and waiting for your exclusive use during your stay.

Decorated in a charming country style, this accessible (i.e. no stairs inside) vacation home features airy rooms and picture windows with incredible woodland views. The shared living areas include a generous, well-lighted, open area complete with a full, modern kitchen; a formal dining area with an extra-large dining table; a living room area outfitted with comfortable lounge seating, a remote-controlled electric [infrared] fireplace unit, and a large-screen (43") satellite TV/connected DVD player; and an airy 3-season porch equipped with foosball and air hockey tables plus a small patio dining set. The roomy kitchen is fully equipped with dining ware, cookware, utensils, modern appliances, butcher-block island, and features plenty of counter space. The large dining table can seat at least 12 comfortably, and the dining area features a ceiling fan with chandelier lighting. The sitting area of the living room is furnished with a leather seating ensemble (e.g., sofa, loveseat, and chair with ottoman), and a large-screen (43"), flat-screen TV with 235-plus stations of satellite television service (including Fox Sports & local channels). All of these connected and open areas are arranged under a ceiling with inset canister lighting and framed by huge picture windows on both the north and south sides of the home. The sun-soaked 3-season porch has sliding doors that open onto the spacious and lushly green back yard and comes complete with additional dining space, as well as game tables like foosball and air hockey.

This home is designed for medium-sized groups and families who want to escape the mad rush of daily life and spend time growing closer to one another, all while experiencing the tranquility and enjoyment that "life in the country" has to offer. We have worked to provide a balance of comfort, functionality, charm, unity, and fun throughout our home and grounds. We even designed our outdoor spaces to provide maximum opportunities for gathering together to enjoy good meals and good conversation. We sincerely hope that the inspiring forest views from the living room and 3-season porch will soothe and comfort you. We love creating welcoming spaces that draw you in with their cozy and charmingly-decorated rooms designed with great care, and our greatest desire is to see you return year after year so you can continually create new memories with those you love.
