The Sunset Shores Lake House, newly completed in 2015, is a modern, ranch-style vacation home settled between the trees on a private beach on Upper Scott Lake in rural Lee Township, Michigan. Experience Michigan in a spectacular new way with seven private bedrooms, four full baths, a wide, level lawn, a fire pit, and a private beach with boat dock over shallow water.
Decorated in a charming, French countryside style, this accessible vacation home features a great room perfect for family time, spacious rooms, and picture windows with an unbeatable view of Upper Scott Lake. The shared living areas include a generous great room complete with a full kitchen area, a breakfast table, a formal dining area with extra-large table, and a comfortable lounge area. The kitchen is equipped with dining ware, cookware, utensils, modern appliances (including a "hidden" mini-fridge for drinks or snacks for the kids), and an island with plenty of work space. The small breakfast table is set for four, while the larger dining table can seat 12 comfortably, with two more seats available on the kitchen island stools. The lounge area is furnished with leather sofas and a large (55"), flat-screen TV connected to both satellite service and a DVD player. All of these areas are arranged under a vaulted ceiling with inset canister lighting and floor-to-ceiling windows on the lake-facing side. Sliding doors open onto an outdoor deck area, equipped with a secondary dining space complete with gas grill.
To the side of the house, a well-lit screened porch with 6-piece dining set and ceiling fan provides an excellent place to play cards while enjoying a calming view of the trees. Other shared spaces include a second lounge area with two full-sized reclining leather sofas and another large-screen (55") TV with satellite service, as well as a tiled recreation room with a pool table, foosball, and table tennis.
Sleeping arrangements: Seven private bedrooms at Sunset Shores Lake House are furnished with soft beds including five bedrooms with a queen-sized bed in each, one bedroom with two side-by-side twin-sized beds, and a final bunk bedroom with four twin-sized beds — two lofted and two lower.
One of Sunset Shores Lake House’s best features is its expansive lawn, carefully manicured with lush green grass. Between the attached deck and the water’s edge, guests will find a circle of inlaid stone set with a permanent bonfire pit and equipped with a cooking grate. This wide circle of firelight is furnished with enough yard chairs for the entire group to gather 'round the flames and roast marshmallows for s’mores.
Further out from the house, guests can enjoy a sandy swimming area with shallow wading that continues out for 20 to 30 feet at right around knee-level — perfect for letting the kids splash around in the lake. The home is also equipped with a private boat dock for guests to moor their own vessels or cast a line off the end, as well as a traditional canoe, allowing freedom to explore the lengths of Upper Scott Lake. Single-person kayaks area also available for rental with a reservation by the day or the week, for a nominal daily fee.
The area around Upper Scott Lake and nearby Lee Township, MI, are part of a quiet community where many vacationers return year after year to enjoy the lovely seasonal changes, as well as fishing, cycling, water sports, golf, and skiing. Sunset Shores Lake House is one of just a few luxury vacation homes gathered on the shores of Upper Scott Lake, giving the area a quiet and close-knit feel.
This year-round rental gives guests access to the many wonderful seasonal experiences in and around Upper Scott Lake and Lee Township, including boating, swimming and picnicking in summer, admiring the fall leaves and inhaling the brisk lake air in autumn, ice fishing, skating, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing in winter, and a variety of colorful wildflowers in spring. The cottage is also conveniently located just a 15-minute drive from local treasures such as Crane’s Orchards and Dutch Farms, where visitors can participate in seasonal fruit harvesting and indulge in fresh-baked pastries.

Such a beautiful experience! Reviewed 3 May 2018. My family had such a wonderful time celebrating my mom's 50th birthday at the Sunset Shores Lake House! Great for large groups and this house has everything you need — we really only needed to bring the food. We got to fish, sit by the fire pit, and hang out in the living room. The rooms were comfy and the house itself was really cozy. We will definitely be back!!
Great Place for a big group but a few things to know before you go! Reviewed 11 Oct 2017. We had a group of 12 friends stay at this house in Pullman Michigan, and it was a great space for that many people! We loved how there were 2 larger gathering areas, and we also loved how each of the bedrooms were roughly the same size. A few things to know before you stay here: the house is in the country and had many fruit flies lurking inside, so I recommend bringing bug spray and closed containers to keep food in while indoors. Second, we were only given one roll of paper towel for the entire weekend for 12 people to use to clean AND for napkins, and each bathroom only had one roll of TP in it, so I recommend bringing extra napkins/paper towel and TP to use during your stay. We had to run out on Saturday morning to buy more of these supplies.
Perfect for a large group! Reviewed 22 Aug 2017. We really enjoyed our week at Sunset Shores! We had 4 families with 5 small children and each family was able to have their own bedroom/bathroom. The yard was big enough for many games. The beach area was perfect since the water was shallow and the sand was clean. The guys in our group went golfing a couple of times, but the rest of us didn't leave, we just enjoyed the peace and quiet. We loved the long, large table for our group meals. The afternoon sun was too hot to enjoy eating at the outdoor tables since there were no umbrellas or shade. Overall, it was an excellent place for us!!
Had another great week in Pullman! Reviewed 14 Aug 2017. Last year we stayed at the Sunset Beach location and were very pleased. This year we decided to rent the larger Sunset Shores Lake House. We were impressed as soon as we walked in. Plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms with an added bonus room. This is a great place for large or multiple families. The only downside to this house was there was very little shade and no patio umbrella. It was very warm to sit outside with no covering or umbrellas on the deck. Great kitchen was fully stocked, with lots of seating. Screened porch with a lake view was also added bonus. Hope to book again next year.
Wonderful Home Away from Home!! Reviewed 1 Aug 2017. This darling Sunset Shores Lake House couldn't be more charming! This house is perfect for a dual family reunion -— so many bedrooms, bathrooms and communal spaces for dining and fun! The cleanliness of this house is impeccable which is a major bonus! The green space and sandy water access are ideal for children's play. We had a fabulous week!
Great House for Entire Family! Reviewed 5 Jun 2017. This beach house was very spacious with plenty of bathrooms that sleeps up to 16. The view from back of house to the lake is beautiful! Being located between South Haven and Saugatuck makes it very convenient short ride either way. The local stores came in handy since they are less than 2 miles away. If you are a looking for a fun and relaxing place, this is the perfect place! We are looking forward to coming back next year! Also, Elizabeth and Jill are awesome and are very helpful!
Great getaway for adult couples. Reviewed 7 May 2017. All in all, the Sunset Shores Lake House was excellent for our group of 6 couples. We were looking for a getaway without children and found this house which had 7 bedrooms to accommodate us. The bedrooms were all the same size which made it nice to not have to pick straws, and the house was done up very nicely! Tile floors, comfy furniture, a gorgeous long dining table perfect for all group meals and games! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook meals and serve everyone. And having 4 bathrooms for 12 adults was excellent! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because it really wasn't near anything! We had to drive at least 15 minutes to Fennville for Salt of the Earth dinner (DELICIOUS!) and a winery tasting at Fenn Valley Winery (would highly recommend). Also, it was a rainy weekend when we went so we couldn't enjoy the lake or any water sports on the lake. We would rent again if we had a need to go up to this area in the future!
Perfect home for large group/family. Reviewed on 05 Dec 2016. Our family rented this house for the week of Thanksgiving. We found the house was very clean and provided everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable. The lake view was spectacular from the deck and our children had plenty of room to play out back. We would not hesitate to return.
We fell in love with southwest Michigan on a trip to visit friends in South Haven nearly 15 years ago. As Chicago natives, we were immediately enchanted by the serene atmosphere and natural beauty — not to mention the extensive outdoor activities. Since then, we have embraced the tradition of spending holidays and summer weekends in the area, and it was only a matter of time before we decided to find a vacation home of our own.
By a stroke of luck, we discovered our first gorgeous property on Upper Scott Lake in Lee Township nearly 15 years ago. We began renting out the cottage there out of a desire to share our wonderful experiences with others. We have since added 8 additional rental properties, and we love offering a simple countryside alternative to busy city life.
