Description from owner

This quaint secluded cabin on the grounds of the Echo Dell Castle on Lower Scott Lake is the perfect setting for a lakefront family get away. The private dock and 150' of lake frontage offer spectacular views of the Michigan sunsets. The cabin features two lofted bedrooms overlooking the lake with Queen and Full sized beds.Trundle beds roll out in each room for the kids.

The main floor offers a large full sized kitchen, dining area and great room which face the lake and connect to the large deck via walk out doors.The great room has a wood burning fireplace which adds to its charm. The large yard has plenty of room for games and the fire pit is great for camp fires. We have a paddle boat, canoe and kayak for your use together with plenty of life jackets of all sizes. All the fishing poles and tackle you will need are included as well.The cabin comes fully equipped with pots, pans, silverware, linens, blankets, towels, paper products,grilling tools, and even soaps and shampoos.

About the area

The Ice House sits on Lower Scott Lake in Pullman. The lake is 140 acres in size and is an all sports lake. Fishing, swimming, water skiing and tubing are all great activities on the lake or just relax and watch the swan and other waterfowl.The busy resort towns of South Haven and Saugatuck are only 15 and 20 minutes away respectively. Nestled on the edge of the Allegan Forest, the sounds of nature are everywhere. The Kal-Haven trail is just down the road and is great for biking and hiking, There are many great golf courses nearby as well as you pick fruit and wineries.All this and more and less than 2 hours from Chicago or 3 from Detroit. Plenty of local restaurants, party stores and fuel just a mile away. You will love it here!

“PERFECT GIRLS' WEEKEND”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2016

Our girls' group of 5 spent several nights at the Ice House and were making plans to return next year on the drive home. The cabin is clean, cozy and so comfortable. The view from floor to ceiling windows and sliding door is just breathtaking! Linens, kitchenware, and fresh towels and toiletries are provided as an added bonus. When additional towels were requested they were promptly delivered! There is a huge library of movies in case weather is inclement and a fire pit with wood provided and plenty of seating around the fire pit when weather is nice. The lake is full of fish with a paddle boat and row boat and poles provided for fishing. We caught enough pan fish for dinner and a bass large enough for share! South Haven and Saugatuck are minutes away and provide Lake Michigan Access, quaint and unique shops and many delicious dinner options. It was honestly one of the best girls weekends we have shared! Big Thanks to Roger and his wife for turning our stay into a forever memory! We will see you nerxt year! Sincerely, Lisa, Amy, Nome, Ashley and Jen.

“Peaceful Setting”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2016

Charming, lakeside cabin with all the amenities of home. I particularly enjoyed the rustic decor, especially the stenciled sayings, and the beautiful photographs. The freshly cut flowers and home-made cookies were also very much appreciated. My daughter, who just turned 21 and was taking a mini break from Western Michigan, made full use of the canoe. The icehouse is a great place to unwind and get back to nature. A pilated woodpecker posed for us, as did a cheeky chipmunk and a family of swans. Fishing off the pier was entertaining even if we didn't catch anything. Gracious and accommodating hosts.

“Family Get-away”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2014

First glance doesn't do this place justice. I was a little concerned by the run-down trailers in the area before we got to the house. The inside of the house was well decorated, very cozy. Good internet access, though only a few TV channels. Access to the lake was wonderful. The kids enjoyed fishing off of the dock and riding around the lake in the paddle boat. We played kickball, soccer, and Frisbee in the side yard. The indoor wood-burner is not well vented, the outdoor fire pit is a better option. Being only 15 minutes from South Haven, we spent a couple days there riding around town on rented bikes, visiting shops, and playing at the beach. This cottage was the best of both worlds for my family - close to the big lake (yet less expensive than staying there) and still have a small lake to fish, boat, and watch wildlife.

“Great Weekend at the Ice House”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2014

We had an awesome two days at the Ice House. The canoe and paddle boat provided for us were so much fun to take out on the lake. All the outdoor stuff looked a little well-worn, but definitely did the trick. We also really enjoyed the fire pit, although I wish I had known that there wasn't much firewood available, so I could have picked some up on the way in. We were a bit far from any real grocery store, but between the farm stand produce and more shelf-stable stuff at the local gas station/market we were able to put together some really nice meals. Overall, we had a great and comfortable time at the Ice House. We'd love to come back!
