Very clean, nicely decorated inside and out, and fully furnished with everything you need. Views are incredible, very private, we never saw anyone during our week here except once or twice on the beach. Overall this property is as advertised and the photos represent exactly what you get. Saw deer and turkeys in the yard several times. Less than 10 minutes to town for anything you need. Lots of room, large deck, yard and living space. There were only two of us so we had more than enough room to spread out. Sharon called and let us have an extra day on the front end of the week due to an early departure, which was great since we had to leave a day early. We’ve rented other Lake Michigan cottages from Ken and Sharon and we are always extremely satisfied. You need to be able to handle over 250 steps if you want to go down the bluff to the beach, we are in our early 50’s and we didn’t have any problems. The beach was nice, it’s kind of “thin” between the lake and the bluff but it’s very private. There are some rocks to deal with and there was a strong undertow when the wind was blowing, which was most of the time but we swam almost every day and enjoyed ourselves. Overall we would highly recommend this property.

Ludington, MI is one of my favorite places on Earth, and this cottage is the perfect place to enjoy all that Ludington has to offer. The home provides all the conveniences you nee to settle in for a wonderful week away. The white sand beach is stairs away, complete with a fridge at the bottom of the stairs! Perfect for storing beach provisions! The house was very clean, well maintained, and spacious.

The pictures don't do the house justice. The bedrooms were all large, big enough to fit a pack and play in both upstairs rooms. Ken was available and helpful with anything we needed.

Highly recommend this property to anyone looking to enjoy all that #puremichigan has to offer!

Perfect in Every Wayl

  • 5 of 5

Ken and Sharon have anticipated your every need. They are warm and hospitable and have everything you need available in the cottage. The kitchen is well stocked. Bedrooms are nicely appointed with furnishings and linens. Beds are comfortable!

The view is SPECTACULAR!! You will watch beautiful sunsets, the Badger come from Wisconsin to Ludington and the freighters move along the lakeshore. Beach is clean, beautiful and very private. You will be surprised at how few people you will see on the beach and you enjoy your time there.

You will love every minute of it and the owners are in the area and can take of anything you need.

Even better than it looked

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exceptionally clean, well-maintained, well-equipped, modern, comfortable and spacious. It met or exceeded all the expectations of our family of five. While it is high bank (259 steps), the view from the edge is spectacular. Our 8-year old grandson had no problem going up and down. Access to the restaurants, grocery stores and activities in Ludington is quick. The new owner (Ken) was very hospitable and indicated that he soon plans to install a water softener for the only fault I could find: really hard water. I recommend the cottage.
