Beautiful home with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We brought a group of 12 adults to Ludington for a marathon training camp and this home could not have been a more perfect base. It fit us all with no problems and was fully equipped (we brought a bunch of our own cooking supplies since we wanted to eat in and barely needed to use any). The only knock on the property is the grill (it's basically a standard beach charcoal grill), but that's a very small gripe. The views of the water are incredible and watching sunsets from the back yard was a favorite activity for all. It's only a short drive from downtown Ludington and the state park and is easy to get to. We hope to come back and would recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful stay!
