About Julie Zwiefka Matthews

Julie and Darren are both GM employees in the Detroit area, but love to get away to Ludington any time of the year! Nick is in 6th grade. Julie grew up in Ludington and still has family in the area, and Darren and Nick have come to enjoy it as a home away from home. As our family has grown the condo has allowed us to have our own space when visiting family especially around the holidays. We hope you enjoy our condo as much as we do! Julie, Darren, and Nick

Julie Zwiefka Matthews purchased this condo in 2008

Why Julie Zwiefka Matthews chose Western Michigan

Julie and Darren both love to get away from the city to relax whenever possible. Ludington has a wonderful small-town feel and is close enough to home for short trips, but far enough to be 'away.' We look forward to spending time outdoors together as a family, so the sandy beaches and active state park are perfect for us!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very nice time during our stay in your beautiful condo. For the first four days the weather was absolutely gorgeous. Warm and Sunny. But as the week went on the weather got much cooler and very windy. We enjoyed watching the waves crash on the lighthouse pier. Your condo had everything that we needed and was very nicely appointed and the view just couldn't be beat!

Great condo, great complex, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th time we have stayed in this unit in the Harbor Terrace building. There are always plenty of towels, kitchen utensils, books, games - if you need it, it's there!! Plastic plates and cups for the kids which is great. A laundry hamper and washer/dryer for when the hamper is full :) The view is fantastic - my son runs to the window to see the Badger every time it arrives and departs. The building is walking distance to downtown where there are great restaurants and shops. We love it here!

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Ludington this summer. Our rental was perfectly located to enjoy all the sites of the city, beach and marina. The indoor pool was an added attraction for the grandchildren. The 4th floor balcony view was outstanding. We would definitely consider this rental again for our next stay in Ludington. Thanks!

Great for a family

  • 5 of 5

Nice, newer building that has garage access, which was a big win for my husband. Unit is on the 4th floor, and there is an elevator. However, the unit its self has a flight of stairs right as you open the door. Fine for us, but as another reviewer mentioned, might not work for an elderly person. Lots of light in the condo and not musty, as sometimes lake properties are. Although we only saw one other young family, this is a great family rental. My daughter loved the built in bunk beds and pool. The condo is close to the little downtown, where there is a nice playground, restaurants, shops, etc. We lucked into a Friday night street fair, and our daughter was thrilled! Fun to sit on the balcony and watch the ships come and go. I had to text the owner and ask a question about the garage door opener, she was very accessible and kind. A great experience us!

This condo has it all! Location & amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect condo for family with little ones. We loved the indoor pool with hot tub, waterfront playground, grilling and eating on the balcony, watching the Badger, walking to the post office for stamps, the market for local bread and jam, house of flavors, brewery and party store stones throw away, beach was short drive, luxurious towels, washer dryer in unit, super clean and quiet corner unit, many friendly tenants in this building. You should be aware that there is a flight of stairs to get to from the entrance of the unit to the living space. Was no biggie for our family but may be difficult for older people or those with knee problems.

Ludington has been voted one of the top beaches in the US, providing over 8 miles of pristine sandy public beaches. The SS Badger allows visitors to cut across on a short 4 hour ride from Manitowoc, Wisconsin, as well as observe the large ferry dock each evening. The Ludington State Park is comprised of nearly 5300 acres of scenic sand dunes, ponds, marshlands, and forests. The park also boasts a canoe and kayak trail, cross-country ski trails, and 18 miles of hiking trails that include a 1.5 mile path that leads to the Big Sable Point Lighthouse. Ludington is the top fishing port on Lake Michigan with over 65 licensed charter boats. More trout and salmon are caught out of the port of Ludington each year than any other port in the state. The Waterfront Park offers a harbor walk, a bandshell for free concerts and events, a children's playground and an impressive and expanding collection of original bronze sculptures celebrating Ludington's rich heritage. Pack your bags!
