vacation rental description

Only 2.5 hours from Chicago or Detroit, 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 great 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 campfire and the star-filled night sky at the lakefront fire pit.  The large family room on the lower level is perfect for watching movies or playing games, and the sun room provides a quiet place to curl up and read a book or write in your journal.

The fully equipped kitchen is designed for casual cooking or preparing gourmet meals as it is equipped with an all new stainless steel 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 overlooking the grounds and lake.

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 fall, and the quiet snow covers the ground in winter.

This is a smoke-free home so your cooperation is appreciated and expected.

Weekly rates are for 7 nights.  Check-in is Saturday at 3 pm, check-out is Saturday at 11 am.

traveler reviews for this south haven house rental


Review submitted: May 28, 2013   Date of arrival: May 24, 2013

This place was amazing! I, with 4 of my girlfriends, spent Memorial Day weekend here and had a blast. House is great as well as the pier and fire pit! Close to South Haven if you need things to do (Clemenites is a good place to eat and the Friends Good Will boat ride is interesting) but great to just "chill out". House is well furnished and clean. Would recommend it to anyone and hope to be back this fall with my family!

Recommended for: girls getaway, pet-friendly, romantic getaway
