Ludington vacation rentals

Experience a life of luxury in Ludington

Ludington is one of the most naturally diverse and culturally rich vacation destinations in Michigan. Bordered by the vastness of Lake Michigan to the west and the scenic Huron National Forest to the east, its iconic lighthouse attracts visitors from near and far for a truly special vacation. Ludington vacation rentals give you a choice between panoramic waterfront homes with views over Lake Michigan, rustic cabins in the heart of the Huron National Forest and everything in between. For the full experience, watch the S.S. Badger roll into port with the Ludingtonites over a local craft beer. Now that’s refreshing.

Make a splash on Ludington’s beaches

Michigan might not be the first place that springs to mind for stretches of golden sands, but you’d be crazy to miss out on Stearns Park Beach: the town’s top rendezvous point for everything from get-togethers with friends to family days out. Take a dip in Lake Michigan to cool off, or simply charter a boat if you prefer to kick back with a beer and indulge in some salmon fishing. After a day of boating, exploring, or even a spot of golf, that fresh grilled fish is a hard-earned reward that tastes even better when you’ve reeled it in yourself.

Get a taste of Ludington life

Ludington has an incredible array of cultural and gastronomic offerings you’re sure to love. Check out the Ludington Area Center for the Arts events calendar, jam-packed with performances, exhibitions and musical events, or the ‘Suds on the Shore’ craft beer festival in mid-August. The town is renowned for House of Flavors, a Guinness World-record-breaking ice cream parlor, not to mention that it's also the biggest in Michigan—perfect in the July sun! And while you’re there, make the trip to Traverse City’s annual National Cherry Festival, featuring everything from breakfasts and markets to wacky competitions and airshows.

Ludington has charm, come rain or shine

West Michigan is truly a destination for all seasons, but you will have different experiences at different times of year. The warmer months, generally May through September, are beach and boating weather when the lakes truly come into their own. The remaining months are cooler but provide the perfect opportunity to explore the changing nature with blossoming orchards in spring and scenic hayrides in fall. Or why not opt for the snowy months and settle into one of our cozy Ludington vacation rentals to enjoy the magic?

Natural beauty, man-made charm: A Ludington for everyone

Needless to say, Ludington’s unique position between land and sea allows for an incredible range of wildlife to thrive. Aside from wild game birds and deer in the State Park, the Pere Marquette River alone is packed with trout and salmon as well as frogs, turtles and otters. Just two hours north, you’ll find the Sleeping Bear Dunes, an outstanding ecologically diverse area once named “the most beautiful place in America.” So, as charming as Ludington vacation rentals are, we highly recommend you take some time to enjoy the great outdoors.
