About the area

Sunset Beach House is one of a few homes surrounding Upper Scott Lake, a quiet inland lake in Pullman, Michigan. Come and experience all four seasons at Sunset Beach! Summer brings the fun of boating, swimming, picnicking, and relaxing. The autumn colors are spectacular around the lake and 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 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. Contact us for an extensive list of activities in the area!

“Perfect family vacation home”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2017

This home had everything you could possibly want for your vacation. It was as if the owners spent a week there and purchased any and everything they needed or wanted for their comfort. We stayed with our two married children and three grandchildren. Everyone had their own room. The kitchen was beautiful, well stocked and had excellent appliances. The family rooms were roomy, light, and perfect for us. The little ones loved the small beach with shallow water. When we first arrived, I thought the price was a little high for the location (8 miles off the highway), but we all really enjoyed ourselves and the surrounding communities of Holland, Saugatuck, and South Haven.

Owner's reply: We are so pleased to know that you and your family were comfortable in our home, and that you enjoyed your vacation!

This house is the best for large groups! We loved the dock, the canoe, the fishing, the fire pit... It was truly the best way to start the summer. We will definitely be renting this home out again next year. What a lovely location on a breathtaking lake with such amazing people.

Owner's reply: We love hearing from our renters and we are so pleased to know that we helped start our your summer on a really positive note! Please be sure to book early if you want your pick of peak summer dates.

Your home was even better than we expected! We had a large group - both adults and kids - and it was more than accommodating! The home is beautifully decorated and immpeccably clean! Everything we needed was provided and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! workong with the owner was seamless; she answered all of our emails immediately and the property management person was equally as attentive when we encountered issues with the dishwasher. I would definitely recommend this home to our travelers! Thanks!

“Healing”

Reviewed 26 Dec 2016

I rented this property by myself...yes by myself to get away after experiencing some emotional trauma early this year. The staff was amazingly supportive of my wishes, and encouraging. This place was everything that was advertised and much more. Everything was provided. So much space. I had a question while I was there and the housekeeper responded right away. It could have been because I was there for Christmas, but it was amazingly quiet and peaceful. Comfortable. The view of the (frozen) lake was divine. The home was beautiful and charming. I spent a lot of time in Pullman as a kid, and the town has a certain aura that hasn't changed, and Sunset Beach captured that feel for me precisely. My only issue was that the wifi didn't work on my devices, but it wasn't a big deal for me, so I didn't bother anyone about it. But that is something that may need fine tuning. Other than that, everything was amazing. I can't say when, but I will definitely try and rent again. Thanks so much for providing me the space I needed to assist in the healing process.

“Beautiful lake views”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2016

The house was very beautiful and situated on a lovely lake. We rented it for a long "girls' weekend" and were very pleased with house. The decor was a great blend of old and new. It is located close to several charming towns where there are lots of things to do. We will most likely plan to rent it again next year!

Owner's reply: We are so pleased to know that you and "the girls" had a pleasant stay in our home, Joyce!

“Better than I imagined”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2016

First of Elizabeth was such a pro and made booking so easy and never hesitated answering what seemed like a zillion quesions. Directions were perfect-- My first impression was the yard, wow, beautiful landscaping, well maintained. Walked in to home and another wow--clean, spacious and inviting. There were 11 in our party and it never felt like we were on top of each other--there is plenty of room to be alone or be with everyone. Highlights were playing pool. ping pong, canoeing and of course that great firepit. If I had to, had to say something that I didn't like it would be a small skillet where my eggs didn't stick, but hey, maybe it was my cooking skills for that day. You can tell pride in ownership and I for one (my family seconded) cannot wait to return. That wonderful secluded, yet everything at your fingertips feeling was AWESOME!!! Thanks for making this trip a memory for the books and so easy to plan. I consider myself lucky! If you are contemplating staying here don't think twice but stay away from my week :)

Owner's reply: NOTE: THIS RENTER ACTUALLY STAYED IN OUR UPPER SCOTT LAKE RETREAT (LISTING ID 21933) We just love hearing that you enjoyed your stay, Yolanda! We will be sure to stock the house with a better egg-cooking pan in your honor :)

“Wonderful place to vacation.”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2016

This vacation was truly the best time I've had in a long time. Our friends and family had such a good time playing game, enjoying the water sports, bonfires every evening, and pool table tournaments every evening. The large spacious Lakehouse provided plenty of room for everyone. Our group what's more than impressed with this house, and plan to return next year.

“Family Vacation”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2016

Our family enjoyed the spacious house with the lake view. We were able to prepare food in the fully stocked kitchen. We all enjoyed the lake with the kayaking, fishing, and swimming. The kids went swimming every chance they could get. The deck was nice for relaxing, grilling, and eating. Also, the screened in porch was great for reading and quiet times. This is our second time vacationing at this house. Once in the winter and this time in July. We had 11 in our group and we all had plenty of room. Great place to spend with children and grandchildren.

“Outstanding Experience!”

We just wanted to let you know that our 4 generation family vacation at your rental was great! We hated to leave to come home today. The weather was perfect, water warm, and the fish were biting! Thank you for allowing us to rent from you!

Our children enjoyed Sunset Beach very much. It fulfilled our needs, the sunsets were beautiful and the home clean. Thank you so much. ~ Anonymous Renters from July 18-25, 2015

Hello Elizabeth -

I just wanted to say thank you for everything!! We had an amazing stay at Sunset Beach and could not have been happier. The house is amazing and the lake was beautiful. Our family made some great memories these past few days! (I did not have a chance to write in the book at the house so I wanted to pass on our compliments via email)

Also, we left some rafts and inner tubes for the next guests to enjoy.

Thank you again for everything and I am sure you will hear from us again next year :)

Jenny Hamilton (June 25-29, 2015)

We had a great time. Weather was great. The house was in great condition. The mornings were so peaceful looking out at the lake and watching the swans go by. Looking forward to coming back.

“Healing”

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in December 2016

I had an amazing, relaxing time at Sunset Beach. I rented the home out by myself during Christmas to help myself heal from trauma I experienced during the year. The home and the view was beautiful, and everything that I needed was already there. I wanted for nothing. Everyone I worked with to book the rental was great and encouraging. The housekeeper was immediately responsive when I had a question. Being in Pullman again (I spent a lot of time there as a child) was exactly what I needed to help the healing process along. My only issue was not getting the Wifi to work...I didn't bother the housekeeper because it wasn't a big deal. I will definitely book again in the future.
