Great Vacation House

  • 5 of 5
This is a well-equipped, comfortable, beautiful new house tucked away off of dirt roads in the Manistee National Forest on the shore of Hamlin Lake. It is a short drive from the house through the woods to the Nordhouse Dunes Wilderness Area (where you can hike through the woods to the beach, but check the trail map carefully before entering since there are very few trail markings) and to the Lake Michigan Recreation Area (where you can walk right on to the beach from the parking lot). The Lake Michigan beach there is gorgeous. It's easy to find long stretches without anyone on it.

We enjoyed kayaking (in the kayaks that come with the house) on Hamlin Lake and sitting on the lovely porch overlooking the lake. The only negative: We would have liked to swim in Hamlin Lake by the house but, at least when we were there, the large amount of vegetation in the water made swimming unappealing.

In short, though, this is a great house. The photos and description here capture it well. We'd recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely retreat in this part of Michigan.

Summer Vacation

  • 4 of 5
We spent one week this summer at Hamlin Lake Hideaway. The house is new -- clean and comfortable as the pictures show. Remote location, very quiet and peaceful setting -- just what we were looking for. We rented a pontoon for the week and having the dock in front of the house made it very convenient. Nordhouse Dunes is close by and is one of the most beautiful, sandy beaches in Michigan - a well-kept secret.

Our only negatives were poor cell service (Verizon); no air-conditioning; and the road traveling into the property (Nurnberg) was challenging. Overall we had a very nice stay and would recommend this property to folks looking for a relaxing get-away.

Owner's Response: Central Air will be installed for Summer of 2013. Verizon has installed a new tower midway between Ludington and Manistee which should greatly improve reception.

A quiet, peaceful hideaway

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cottage for a lovely week in late July, early August 2012 for a family vacation. It is brand new, well equipped, and we found it very comfortable for 5 adults. Its best features are its' location - only a few hours from Grand Rapids but a world away in terms of seclusion on the quietest part of Hamlin lake just north of Luddington - and its' light and airy design.

We spent the days hiking and biking at Luddington State Park (an amazing place) and in Nordhouse Dunes wilderness area just a few miles down the road. Sleeping Bear Dunes national lake shore and Manistee provided additional diversion. We spent early mornings and evenings on the front porch overlooking the lake (swans, ducks, and the occasional water skier), boated across the lake to a great restaurant for supper, and kayaked deep into the mouth of the Big Sable river. In the evenings we lingered over supper to talk, then, when it got dark, gathered round a video screen to watch back episodes of Donton Abbey.

Some may find the absence of cable and high speed internet a disadvantage. We found it good to be away from it for a week. There is no air conditioning (there is heat) but the house is well situated and designed for fresh air flow and plenty of light.

In short, this is a place to relax, slow down, enjoy nature, and pay attention to the folks you are with.
