The house was very clean and had everything we needed. Comfortable and peaceful. Loved sitting on the deck and watching the birds play in the marsh. Close to the State Park and downtown Ludington. Would stay here again!
The place was Beautiful! Every thing was clean and neat and there was nothing that you had to Take! It is a very peaceful place to be for some total relaxing. We loved it and had a wonderful week. Wished we could have stayed longer.
This home was more than expected in a rental. It was fully stocked and then some. My family had a great time. It however is not "boat" friendly unless you have a smaller outboard. Our 18 foot inboard/outboard was unable to be docked at the house. We rented a boat slip at the Marina which was down the street within a short drive.
From May 22-27, my family and I spent a wonderful five days at the Duneview Lake House. The house is equipped with everything you need for a great vacation, and it's very secluded. If there were any neighbors around, we couldn't see or hear them. In my opinion, the best thing about this lake house is the location. It's actually located on the northern bayou of Hamlin Lake, as opposed to being on the main part of the lake. This lends itself to much greater wildlife viewing opportunities. The array of birds and other wildlife we were able to observe/study during the course of our stay was amazing! Some of the highlights from our stay:
There was a pair of Mute Swans nesting about 50 yards straight out from the dock. They had three chicks (appropriately call cygnets). We were able to observe them for five days. Incredible!
A constant stream of hummingbirds visiting the feeders on the back deck.
A Great Blue Heron hunting/feeding near the dock. You can actually see the fish wiggling and it slides down the heron’s long neck.
From the dock, I hooked a big Large Mouth Bass on my second cast. Long story short, it took me a good 15 minutes to bring the bass in. But then, as I tried to grab it's lower lip, it bucked off the hook and back into the water. No photos, no witnesses, never happened.
A family of muskrats live in a den just to the left of the dock. They don't seem too concerned about humans.
A pair of nesting Baltimore Orioles live near-by. They like the hummingbird feeders as well.
Night time brings an incredible symphony of wildlife. Step out on the back deck and take a listen.
Birds, birds and more birds.
Camp fires. Steaks on the grill. The elk ranch. Ludington State Park. Family. Great vacation.
We’ll be coming back…
Great place to stay the owners are great to work with my party was very happy, will be back again.
We had a wonderful time in this great lakeside home. It was spacious, well equipped and full of little extras. These included an enormous jet tub, a large dining space, and plenty of household items to make our stay relaxing. Location is private and beautiful!
