About Linda Skarin

My husband of 34 years and I enjoy building homes together. This is our first vacation property. Our five children and eight grandchildren have all added insight into making this vacation home extra special. We all enjoy extending hospitality to others and know that you will build many happy memories at our Sunset Cottage.

Linda Skarin purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Linda Skarin chose South Haven

After looking for over five years our family selected this property because it had the most beautiful beach of all the properties that we considered. The beach neighborhood is comprised of single family homes and is very quiet in a wooded setting. Likewise, as a custom home builder we wanted to create a special place for families to gather that was beautiful with artisan charm.

What makes this cottage unique

Besides the sandy beach and stunning sunsets over Lake Michigan, this home exudes charm from the moment you drive up to it. The 3 porches invite you to sit and relax with a glass of iced tea while reading a book or chatting with friends and family.

Adult Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome house with great views of the lake. The owners were very nice and easy to reach by phone. We had a great time visiting the area and local wineries. We would love to make this a yearly trip, and hope to stay at the sunset cottage again.

Family Weekend Away!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Beach Cottage with friends for an extended weekend in the fall. We had the most wonderful time! Thanks to Jim/Linda (most gracious homeowners) for their recommendations and help with directions. The house was perfect for our families, beautiful, well maintained, spacious, very clean. Great and easy access to the beach. I know our boys (4 between us) had the time of their lives having their first real sleepover in such a "cool room!" We hope to back in 2015.

New Years Eve

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the South Haven Beach Cottage for a long New Years Eve getaway. The cottage is beautiful and well maintained. The setup was perfect because the lower level has a ping pong table, a TV and a sitting area -- so the adults could spend time together in the evening without waking up the kids in the bedrooms on the top floor. The kitchen and dining area have plenty of space, so we didn't feel cramped with 10 people. All of the finishes are beautiful and everything was clean when we arrived.

Siblings & Spouses Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous weekend at your Beach Cottage. Everything was clean and decorated beautifully. We had many appliances and kitchen equipment that was top notch. Walking the beach, sitting around a campfire, visiting wineries, and The Chocolate Garden kept us very busy, but we still had time for games on TV and lots of kidding and laughter. Thanks for a memorable weekend.
