Spectacular Lake MI Waterfront-Private Beach-4BR-4.5 Baths-Quiet-Amazing Views
About Jim Skarin
My wife of 39 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 Mount 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 arbor swing offers spectacular views of Lake Michigan, and the quiet setting provides the perfect backdrop for a relaxing getaway with family and friends.

Perfect for our family
We had a great week at Mount Pleasant! The house is beautiful and thoughtfully designed with stunning views. Our kids loved the bunk bed room! Plenty of space for our two families. The private beach is lovely. There are stairs down to the beach but I’m 38 weeks pregnant and was able to walk up and down without difficulty. The outdoor heated shower is a nice added touch we appreciated. We enjoyed watching the sunset from the beach and back yard while gathered around the fire pit. Thank you for the s’mores care package, both kids and adults thoroughly enjoyed it!
Better than advertised
Upon arrival we immediately realized that the view was much better than advertised - stunning view of the Lake. Throughout our process the owners Jim and Linda were incredibly responsive - I think ten minutes was the longest it ever took them to respond. There is a bit of a hike down 170 steps to the beach but it was worth the climb. They had lots of beach toys and chairs and an umbrella down there, so we didn’t need to bring much with us. Some days we didn’t even go down, because we were so content spending time on their lawn with such a magnificent view of the lake. This was our first online vacation rental experience and we hope the others are all this good, with as much accuracy of advertising in their web profiles. Great property, we would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful Lake View Get-Away with friends
We had a wonderful time with our friends enjoying South Haven, Beach, evening fire, grilling, playing games, collecting rocks, fishing, watching sports and relaxing reading a book a true rest and relaxation vacation. We enjoyed great restaurants, shopping , and bars in South Haven just 10 minutes away. We saw lots of stars and constellations and a beautiful sunset.
