We were very comfortable at the lake cottage. We were especially pleased with the air conditioning and fans in this humid, hot weather. The campfire that was built for us before we arrived was a good surprise. The outdoor space was peaceful and quiet, and we got to use the kayaks on the last morning. The nature-- turtles, ducks, frogs, and birds--was just lovely. My dog-niece loved it, too.
Really enjoyed staying at the cabin! Inlet is pretty and very peaceful! Loved morning coffee with the frogs! Hosts were very attentive and gracious, installing AC in our cabin before their own, and leaving farmfresh eggs for us to enjoy, so kind! Cabin is comfortable and well appointed, we,and our pup, will definitely stay again on our next trip. Guessing it's gorgeous in fall!
Weather wasn't great but it was so relaxing to be away from home.
Beautiful setting and friendly people.
Needed to bring my dog on this trip. Due to unforseen circumstances my daughter also needed to add her dog to the mix at the last minute. Figured since I already agreed to pet fees, no big deal right? Within minutes of arriving, VRBO pinged with the bill for the 2 dogs. Kind of creepy knowing we were being watched. Kind of overshadowed the whole experience. The pet fees were billed as due immediately. I only had a discover card with me which was not acceptable. So I spent the first hour of my 'vacation trying to communicate with the owner about this, and assured her I would pay it as soon as I got home, which I did, but she had already written a note saying I didn't pay the pet fees before I even completed the 5 hr drive home.
We had a wonderful time of fishing and swimming. Exactly what we wanted. The owners were very accommodating and always willing to help when needed! A very cute place with great fishing for our family.
This place provided everything we needed for a relaxing getaway. Very quiet & peaceful & great location on channel where we could just relax in our tubes. Owners were great to work with.
Our whole family, dog included, had a good time. The kids had a ton of fun on the boats playing in the sand, exploring, and catching fish and turtles. It was great having everything supplied for the kids from sand toys, fishing poles and a tackle box to boats and life jackets. The owners were very friendly and next door if you needed anything.
It was a pleasant weekend on the lake. We loved being right on the water where we could fish from the dock. The kayaks were a big hit! My son loved the big sand pile. The beds are comfortable. Owners are very nice and quick to respond.
We loved the location of this cabin on Scott Lake. Kids spent hours in the paddle boat that was provided. We also enjoyed kayaking and my husband took the little John boat out almost every morning and evening fishing. My kids (ages 8 and 9) loved the bunk beds and having a tv in their room, though there was little time for tv with the lake out the back door and other places nearby to explore. We went to so many places all within 1 hr 15 minutes. We went blueberry picking, horseback riding, tubing down a river, spent time at Oval beach and explored Saugatuck while enjoying ice cream, and went to the zoo in Grand Rapids. All activities were enjoyed other than tubing. We found that a bit boring. Also had dinner at the Grill House and that was well enjoyed. I had high expectations of the cleanliness of the cabin due to other reviews, but walked in to find crumbs still on the kitchen counter. I brought Clorox wipes and was glad I did to give everything a wipe down including the inside of the refrigerator. I would also suggest bringing your own towels and wash cloths for showering as they’ve seen better days. The wash cloths in particular are very worn and felt like sandpaper. Even with those two complaints, I recommend this cabin. Great location and owners are very responsive and respectful.
It was our first family vacation we have taken in years when everybody could come and we had a great time making lifetime memories. Unfortunately it was extremely hot the week we scheduled and the portable air conditioners just couldnt keep up so we cut it short and left 2 days earlier than planned. If it wasnt for that it would have been perfect. The kayaks were awesome and It was a nice way to get out in the water and cool off, we really enjoyed them. The lake was really peaceful and not busy at all. We did not use the row boat or paddleboat but used the kayaks at least once a day, sometimes twice. The owners were always quick to respond and were very helpful. The house was clean, nicely decorated and stocked with things you need. South Haven beach was only about a half hour away and it made a perfect little day trip for us to escape the heat.
Our family made good use of the boats - the kayaks, row boat, and paddle boat were perfect ways to relax.
We booked this place for a last minute weekend getaway with two kids and had a great experience. This cottage is small but laid out so well it doesn’t feel cramped. It had everything we needed plus little extras like a water cooler. The kids learned how to kayak and we took many trips down to the lake in the paddle boat, row boat and kayaks. We hope to be back soon.
Incredible time and place! Owners are great and very helpful. Highly recommend! We will be back soon!
Great location, very peaceful place to relax and enjoy the lake.
We totally enjoyed our lakeside weekend getaway with our grandchildren. They went for a paddle boat ride, swam, collected seashells, saw turtles and fish! The property owners are great and were available for any questions. They truly added to our great experience!
This cottage was amazing for our family vacation. The location is easy to find close to both south haven and Kalamazoo. Property managers were super helpful and accommodating. Met all of my expectations and more. Will definitely contact them again for our next weekend at cottage.
What a wonderful week we had at the cabin! Using the paddleboat in the channel of water was a highlight. So many turtles in the water, and they aren't hard to catch! They have everything you'll need for a great time out there and are happy to help if you forgot something! Location is great as you aren't more than a half hour or so from anything you might be looking to do! Thank you and we will definitely be back! Sorry about wiping out the fish food, the kids were addicted to feeding them! :)
These people have thought of everything! We booked this place last minute and were thrilled to find something so nice available. The owners are really easy to communicate with, the rental is the cleanest we’ve stayed in over the years. Especially nice are the unique little things they provided like fish food to feed the fish and turtles off the dock and a water cooler with filtered water for drinking. The location itself is pretty secluded but within about 45 minutes you can be in South Haven, Kalamazoo or Holland for bigger city stuff and Lake Michigan beaches. We found it to be a great combination of quiet relaxation at the lake and easy to drive day trips for more activities.
Every thing was really good except entery the home, locks was really bad . took 15 mins to get in.
My friends and I had a great time hanging out at the cabin and swimming in the lake. Tina was super nice and answered all of our questions right away!
We enjoyed our stay. Tina and Len were great to rent off of. Quick response to any questions, Cabin had everything we needed for our stay. Cabin was perfect size for family of four(two teenagers). The lake is very beautiful and clean. Neighbors were very friendly. We would definitely go back. The Millers.
My boyfriend and I had a really wonderful time here! Tina was wonderful at communicating with us, whether it was about the availability of the boats to use or if we had questions about the property, and provided us some great recommendations for nearby places to visit. The cottage was clean, it was right next to the water, and it was just a perfect little getaway for vacation. Highly recommend it!
This was perfect for our stay in Michigan with events in Kalamazoo and South Haven! The property manager made a great recommendation for dinner at Grill House in Allegan. Food was good and atmosphere unique.
It was the perfect quiet family get away, we even got to take our family dog with us. My kids loved being able to walk out the door and fish from the dock or hop in a kayak. Owners were helpful and considerate.
Loved the cottage and the lake. Very charming and clean. All amenities were provided.
Neighbors, and hosts were so welcoming and the house was spotless. No complaints. So accomodating
We loved our time at Scott Lake! The cottage was peaceful and charming. We enjoyed taking our boat on the lake and bonfires at night. We spent time in South Haven and Saugatuck which were both close by. The owners were very helpful and friendly and made our stay an enjoyable one. Hope to be back next year! Thank you for sharing your cottage with us, Kim & Jim
Cozy, but plenty of room for my husband, myself, and our three 5- year old grandchildren. Len, the owner, couldn’t have been nicer. He even took us out on the lake in the pontoon boat and let the grandkids “drive,”. Kids loved seeing the fish and turtles in the lake and there was even a small play area for kids. Cottage was very clean and come with everything we needed for preparing easy meals.
Great place to stay. One kid could fish and one got to swim in Lake Michigan. Everything is close by. The cabin had everything we needed and was well kept.
The cottage was well kept and nice and cozy. Plenty of lawn space for outdoor activities!
The owners couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating! We didn't spend a lot of time at the house, we were too busy out exploring the area, but it was a great place to relax in the evenings.
Had a great time visiting my daughter and grandkids.
The cabin was cozy, comfortable and CLEAN!! Furniture and beds were very comfy and for people who are always hot like myself, there's a portable air conditioner and a couple portable fans. The kitchen is well stocked and had everything we needed. Nice little patio area with table and chairs, grill (both gas or charcoal) and firepit in the yard. Unfortunately for us it rained most of the time we were there but we fit in a a short trip in the paddle boat and the row boat. The neighbors were very friendly, always waved as they went by and one neighbor invited us on a boat tour of the lake which was wonderful.....really nice lake! Location is good as it's short distance to Pawpaw, where we went for wine tasting, and to South Haven, where there were lots of fun little shops and is a gorgeous town on Lake MI.. We definitely loved the cabin and the location! Communication with the owner (Tina) was great and always quick responses to any questions, along with information about the area.
Very nice location and the cottage was very comfortable and clean. Yard was nice for outdoor activities and plenty of room around the fire pit. Owners were super nice and very accessible if needed. We would definitely use this property again. Hated to leave!
We had a wonderful stay at this cottage by the lake. We especially enjoyed access to the kayaks and other boats as well as the large outdoor area and fire pit. This house has everything one may need, super comfortable recliners and beds. It may be considered small for larger groups or families but it suited us (a couple) perfectly and we would recommend it to others looking to spend some time in the rural country. We also met Len and Tina and they couldn't have been nicer, making sure that we were well accommodated.
My husband and I did Labor day weekend. We cant say enough on how warm the owners made us feel. The neighbors were super sweet. The place was very clean. We enjoyed the scenic view of the lake. Got up and drank our coffee on the deck, in the morning. Watched all the fish swim by. We took out the paddle boat (that was suppied by the owner) paddled for hours. Enjoying the views, strangers waving and smiling everywhere. They was really nothing we needed, the house was stocked w the basic needs...towels, dishes, utensils, pots pans, grill, outside seating. We only had to pick up and bring food and fire wood. We will be back.
The view was beautiful!! Everything was clean and perfect when we got there. The owners are so friendly and helpful. This is definitely a great place to vacation!! My granddaughter had an absolute blast!!
Since summer was coming to an end, we were desperate to find a place to relax before going back to work and school. My husband found this home and I can only say that it exceeded our expectations! The layout made it cozy and not at all too small for our family of four. The host was readily available if we had any questions. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils and cookware which means I don't have to pack my own the next time we go.
The cottage was great for our family of 6! Plenty of space and it was so nice to have the kids play outside while we enjoyed a cocktail on the patio. Aside from some morning cartoons, it was awesome to disconnect from technology and enjoy our family time. Great fishing and fire pit. We ventured to South Haven and visited North Beach twice. It was an easy 25 minute drive. The owners are very hospitable and easy to work with! Definitely will recommend to friends and family! Also, it was just a short 5 hour drive from Cincinnati. Great option for those families wanting a lake/beach option without the long drives to the South.
Tina's home was great and provided a couple of kayaks to enjoy the lake. Will definitely be returning!
We had a wonderful time at the cottage. After 2.5 weeks on a road trip, it was an amazing way to relax. The cottage had everything we needed, and was Len was so accommodating. He told us about the great swimming beach near by that the kids loved. The welcome basket with supplies for the fire pit was so thought and well enjoyed! The kids Were constantly on the water on the kayaks and boats and so enjoyed catching fish, turtles and seeing the swans and ducks. If we lived closed we would definitely stay here often. If we are ever back in MI, we will be back! . Thank you so very much for a memorable time at Scott lake!
Owners very accommodating, place is immaculate . Fun was had by all . Fishing was good. Kayaking, paddle boating .The one thing, could of used a toaster
The house was clean and we enjoyed using the paddle boat, kayaks, and fishing equipment that was provided. Thank you for being so accommodating.
Great, comfortable cottage on the water, close to South Haven and Kalamazoo. The owners were available, warm, and welcoming. Rental was clean and had everything we needed, from life vests for the boats to extra fishing poles to cooking spices. We loved smores over the firepit, checking out the water wildlife (fish, turtles, frogs, etc.), and taking the boats through the cove and lake. Would love to go back sometime and stay a little longer!
Loved this gem of a cottage! It was clean, well stocked, and had comfy cozy furniture. Tina & Len were perfect hosts and were readily available if we needed anything. Our teen boys enjoyed taking out the kayaks and had good luck fishing from the kayaks and the pier. Although we were only there 2 days, we were able to relax and unwind and enjoy ourselves as a family:) We will definitely be back! Thanks so much Tina & Len!!
Owners are very friendly and the house was immaculate.
If you are looking for a peaceful retreat, this is the place. Away from commercial traffic. Cottage was very clean and is the perfect size and has all the amenities needed to make your stay comfortable. Owners Tina and Len are friendly, caring and helpful. Boat dock complete with kayaks, paddle boat and motorboat. Beach close by. At night you hear the bull frogs talking to each other. Geese love visiting especially if you have bread to share. Nice backyard with fire pit, picnic table and plenty of lawn chairs. Great area, great cottage, great owners.
The house is very comfy and inviting. The owner is a delight to work with. The view is beautiful. The neighbors are very nice and welcoming. It was me and 3 of my girlfriends and we can't wait to go back!!
The owners were pleasant and welcoming through out our stay. The master bedroom was comfortable! Enjoyed all the boats and wildlife. So quiet and peaceful!
