Overview

Ludington House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

If you seek solitude and nature’s beauty adjacent to the abundant activities offered in western Michigan, Sunset Dunes is the place for you!

Miles of sugar sand dunes and beaches are yours at the sole location where the 538,756-acre Manistee National Forest meets Lake Michigan. The 10-acre parcel is on Lake Michigan and abuts the National Forest and Nordhouse Dunes; lower-Michigan’s only designated wilderness area. The house is placed approximately 400' from the lake's edge. The vertical elevation change from house to water is approximately 45' over a walking bridge and walking surfaces on gently rolling dunes.

Sunset Dunes is one of a dozen houses along a one-mile stretch on the Lake. Inland dunes restrict views of other homes. The architect-designed private home is equipped with modern appliances, gas grille, television w/DVD player, radiant floor heating, stereo system, foosball, and a stone wood-burning fireplace. The 100’ tall hardwood and pine trees, private beach-access, ravine-bridge, decks, hot tub, hammock, dunes, and sand-bottom lake offer a multitude of serene and relaxing vacation experiences for the entire family.

After sunbathing, swimming, kayaking, beach walks, or hiking at Sunset Dunes, your entertainment options expand with the nearby cities of Manistee and Ludington, where you’ll find shopping, dining, theatre, championship golf, tennis, fishing, boating, canoeing, bicycling, and many other activities. Relax on the deck as you view rolling dunes and the sunset vista while sipping your favorite beverage. At night, your private beach awaits you for campfires and gazing at shooting stars or the Milky Way, interrupted only by views of the distant lighthouses at Big Sable Point and Manistee Harbor. Secluded...peaceful...serene...If relaxing on your own private beach is what you seek...this is the place for you! If serenity is what you desire...you have found it! Sunset Dunes offers you an opportunity to get away from the everyday stress and hassles and...really relax! This luxury home provides you with a beautiful and peaceful setting with all the modern amenities you desire.

As your enter the foyer, you are immediately greeted by the west wall of glass that projects a panoramic view of wildlife, sand dunes and fabulous Lake Michigan. Living room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom all share these priceless views. Looking around you will appreciate the quality and care of construction in this unique home. Clean lines, vaulted ceilings and open floor plan make this a great place to entertain. A guest bedroom, an additional loft bedroom and a lower level bedroom provide plenty of room for family and friends. At Sunset Dunes you can start your day with breakfast on the east deck, watching the morning sun filter through the trees. A leisurely walk or a run on the miles of trails may beckon you before finding that perfect spot on the large wrap around deck! As the sun climbs higher in the sky and warms the golden sand, your own private beach awaits you for a fun filled day. The only time you need to observe here is sunset time! Circle the deck chairs and sit back for the grand finale, nature's greatest show on earth, the spectacular Lake Michigan sunset! When the sunset's glow begins to fade, relaxing in the hot tub or a cozy fire may beckon...the perfect end to your perfect day. Sunset Dunes offers you a beautiful spot to create lasting memories. A perfect vacation to relax your body, recharge your spirit and refresh your soul!

**NOTE**: 15 June thru Labor Day 7 (SEVEN) NIGHT STAY. 3 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY otherwise. Please inquire for off season stays and rates. Bed linens and towels provided. Call for reservations.

Excellent!

The preceding review is comprehensive and accurate , so will just add a few lines. The kitchen is compact, but the refrigerator/freezer is large, and the area is very well organized. I loved that there are windows everywhere, truly bringing the outside in. Our family enjoyed the beach,lake, kayaks, hot tub, hammock, sunset viewing area, and the quiet. We visited the Ludington library for Internet access, and discovered the Children's Museum across the street. We also found cell phones worked in the Meier parking lot. A very relaxing week; hope to be back.

We booked this rental a while back, looking for something within a day's drive for the various branches of our family. We were intrigued by the photos, and having spent many camping vacations in state parks of Michigan, wanted to experience a little more luxury. We got it! The place is wonderfully thoughout; space is used well and beauty and comfort abound. Loved the beach and the trip to and fro; loved the hot tub, hammock, decks, plethora of windows, art (and sound) for our enjoyment. The water was fun, and we used the boogie boards and kayaks (some of us, anyway). Internet is available as near as the Meiers (we used the Ludington library), but the need didn't seem as strong as back home. Grandchild loved the Children's Museum in Ludington (asked to go back a second time) and we all enjoyed the sunsets, lighthouse trip, and just plain relaxing in this great location. Hope to be back again someday.

BEATIFUL SECLUSION

  • 5 of 5

My extended family of 8 just returned from Sunset Dunes, We LOVED it. Very secluded, GPS was confused. The cabin was well stocked, including beach chairs and umbrella. The cabin itself was "artistic" with many fantastic features. 3 bedrooms, 2 futons and a sleeper sofa could sleep up to 13. The private beach, YES, PRIVATE? Was fantastic, we went every day and ran into 3 other people. It is quite a walk from the cabin, 1000 feet or so with bridge and stairs, but well worth the trek. And sunsets the way they were intended to be seen. This cabin is not a HOTEL room, if you want TV, Internet or Cell Phones, No luck.but you don't rent seclusion in a town of 144 for those things. The kitchen is cozy, so plan your meals well. We also rented a boat in Ludington, on Hamlin Lake for 3 days, (no fish). But lots of sun. Every one in our party was sad to leave. A very relaxing and off the beaten path vacation.
