About Jim Skarin
My wife of 38 years and I enjoy working together. We poured our hearts into building this home. Our five children and eleven 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 Pleasant View Cottage.
Jim Skarin purchased this House in 2016
Why Jim Skarin chose Mt. Pleasant
Our family selected this property because of the quaint setting and beautiful beach. The mid-century beach neighborhood is comprised of single family homes and is in a very quiet wooded setting. We prized the serene location that was just minutes from the amenities of South Haven's bustling downtown.
What makes this House unique
Besides the sandy beach and stunning sunsets over Lake Michigan, this home exudes charm from the moment you drive up to it. The private back yard with its two decks and bluestone patio invites you to sit and relax with a glass of iced tea while reading a book or chatting with friends and family. The quiet setting provides the perfect backdrop for a relaxing getaway with family and friends.

Beautiful Home with Incredible views.
Excellent home with a beautiful view
This is a beautiful home that has excellent views of the water. The bedrooms are all en suite, and the kids room is adorable. We had a wonderful time enjoying the beach, bonfires and the amazing view. I would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a quiet getaway in s.w. Michigan. Jim is an excellent host - we will be back again next year.
Could not have been better!!!
We loved our stay at this spectacular home. Everything was perfect and it was a wonderful get away for 3 couples for the weekend. Beautiful views and the house is decorated so wonderfully. Highly recommend this location and can hardly wait to go back.
Gorgeous home right on the water!
From the first phone call to the final text - working with Jim was simple, efficient & friendly. He is the type of owner you hope to always rent from! And then the home - WOW! Absolutely gorgeous! When you open the front door you are greeted by sweeping views of Lake Michigan. And the rest of the home gives you every thing you could need for a relaxing vacation. The best part - every bedroom has its own bathroom. You won’t be disappointed if you make this home your family’s vacation spot!
Beautiful property in a secluded location
We stayed at this house with family and friends. The home is beautiful and very well done and decorated. We appreciated the private bathrooms and the well appointed kitchen. The beach is very nice- sandy and private. Because of the house’s location a few miles north of town there are not a lot of people on this stretch of beach. There are over 150 stairs down to the beach, so it’s not for people who might find stairs difficult. The house is in a somewhat secluded location, at the end of the road near a private association. But still less than 10 minutes drive to downtown South Haven. Would recommend!!
The property was very tidy and clean and the views were amazing! While it was a bit of a hike to the beach down the stairs, there were landings to rest every 20 steps or so. The beach was awesome! Lots of sand and amazing rocks! We were able to set up a volleyball/ badminton net for the kids to use and there were a variety of toys and chairs provided close to the beach by the owner. The House was decorated beautifully, with lots of charm and high end finishes. The main living space was nice and big for our group of 8 and a huge table allowed plenty of room for us. Ping Pong in the basement was a plus for our youngest. The bedrooms were nice and big...most of them with great views of the lake. The town had a number of fun restaurants for us to eat at and lots of interesting trails to bike or hike. The Black River was fun to kayak and Sea Doos were available to rent in South Haven.
Overall it was a great time and the owners were quick to respond to any questions that we had before and during our stay! They even provided s'mores supplies for us to use at the fire pit in the back yard. (Needless to say the s'mores supplies were completely devoured!) We would definitely go back again!
Minutes north of charming downtown South Haven.
