A pleasant 10-minute walk takes you to the lovely public beach at Stearns park, with 2,500 feet of sandy shoreline. Stearns Park Beach recently topped the Detroit Free Press showcase of Michigan's best beaches, capturing the #1 spot. Walk the half-mile long pier to North Breakwater Lighthouse, which is open for tours in the summer. Also located in Stearns Park is the new Skate Plaza, the perfect place for kids to use their skateboards and in-line skates. Shuffleboard courts can also be found near the Skate Plaza.
There are several different loops of waterfront walkways for your walking or jogging pleasure.
Charter a fishing or sailing excursion through one of the several charter companies based out of the Ludington municipal marina. Ludington enjoys status as the top king salmon port on Lake Michigan. Some of the charters offer sunset cruises. Or, rent a slip for your own boat.
An 8-mile scenic drive along Lakeshore Drive takes you from Ludington to the 5,300 acre Ludington State Park, which celebrated its 75th birthday in 2011. A wide paved shoulder makes it an ideal road for biking. The State Park is a haven for hikers, fishermen, bikers, and nature lovers. There are sand dunes, forests, marshlands and nearly seven miles of Lake Michigan shoreline to explore. For hiking, eight marked trails cover 18 miles and are marked by trail markers and information kiosks along the way providing fascinating historical and natural facts about the park. Canoeing is also available. Launch a canoe at the Hamlin Lake Beach and navigate along the eastern shore of Hamlin Lake through shallow bayous. Travel this unique and picturesque canoe pathway in about one to three hours, depending upon your skill level. Canoes are available for rent, as are paddleboats, rowboats, and kayaks. The park is also well known for the Big Sable Point Lighthouse, which is open for tours May through October.
Ludington State Park is also a popular winter destination. Skiiers can cross crountry ski on 8 miles of trails, 3 of which are groomed. Guided snowshoe walks are held throughout the winter. Bring your own snowshoes, or borrow a pair, available on a first-come first-served basis.
It's only a 45-minute drive to the super fun Michigan's Adventure Amusement Park and Water Park (operating mid-May to early September), and a 45-minute drive to Little River Casino in Manistee.
A return day trip on the SS Badger ferry, 60 miles across Lake Michigan to Manitowoc, WI and back to Ludington, is quite an enjoyable way to spend the day for the entire family. There are fun and interesting activities on board for everyone, as well as some fascinating historical displays. Board the Badger just across the street from the condo.
An ideal vacation and get-away destination, Ludington and nearby surrounding towns, offer year-round activities. There is no shortage of things to do and see in this region: sailing and fishing charters; canoeing; dune rides; golfing; hiking and biking; year-round festivals; skiing; snowshoeing; a bustling art community. And when you return to the condo after a day of activities, you can look forward to a relaxing dip in the indoor hot tub or a leisurely swim in the heated indoor pool.
If you prefer your holiday to be one of complete relaxation and contemplation, you will find it here as well. After spending a short time in Ludington, you will quickly understand why the majestic Lake Michigan shoreline is a source of inspiration for photographers, poets, writers, and artists.
This is absolutely the perfect condo with the perfect location! We have stayed here 3 years and love it. The deck and the view is what makes it. Plenty of room for everyone. Great location because you can walk to downtown. Very clean and well maintained with a stocked kitchen that has everything you'll need. The owner is very quick to get back with you and answers any questions you may have. A perfect spot!
In 2012 we left Ludington to live Florida. We had be residents of this beautiful little town for 35 years. We decided to return for the Fourth of July Week and found this great condo online and booked it. What a great place to stay. Our children joined us on this vacation and it was wonderful. The condo is very spacious and well decorated as well as there was everything that we needed for our stay. The best part for us is the huge balcony with the great view of the carferry, marina, and Ludington Lighthouse. The place is spotless and the sleeping accommodations are perfect. Josephine was very helpful and informative and provided a lot of information for those staying in her condo. This condo is located so well that we walked almost everywhere. When we return for a visit we will certainly try and stay here again.
Wonderful condo located right on the harbor with one of the best views available of the Badger entering and leaving port. Terrace was one of the largest around which was great for BBQ and relaxing with family and friends. One of the nicest condos we have ever stayed in. Condo was very spacious with 3 bedrooms all with comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen and the owner, Josephine was wonderful to work with. Property was very secure with friendly neighbors and a secure garage available for your use. Location is great for walking to nearby restaurants and Waterfront Park if you have small children. One of the nicest parks around. Children can play while you relax and take in the beautiful surroundings, the Badger and amazing sunsets. Ludington is a beautiful, clean town with friendly people, great hometown restaurants and a great base location for enjoying the numerous things to do around Lake Michigan. Hope to return to again and again to Ludington and this condo.
My family goes to Ludington every year for vacation and this condo is the nicest we have stayed in. It was very nicely decorated, very clean, and had everything you would need. The beds were very comfortable, the linens were luxurious, and the kitchen was well stocked and organized. The deck was very spacious with plenty of room to relaxed, have a BBQ, and watch the Badger. Josephine was very helpful and quick to respond with any questions we had. She was even kind enough to return an item my son left behind in the condo. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking to stay in Ludington.
This condo is absolutely beautiful with great views of the Ludington Harbor and Lake Michigan (and the Badger). It was nicely decorated and the beds were super comfortable. The owner has thought of everything to ensure your stay is what you hope for. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes if you like to cook. My husband and I enjoyed the Netflix and watched a few movies. One of our favorite features was the huge deck. Josephine was great to work with, and I would certainly rent her condo again...maybe next summer! Don't miss out, you will be happy if you rent this condo! Kim & Kevin
This beautiful condo was our "home away from home" for two weeks--and we enjoyed every minute of it. We fell in love with it as soon as we opened the door! The condo is spacious, tastefully decorated, and equipped with all of the essentials and so much more. All of the rooms are inviting and comfortable.The large deck overlooking the marina is a great place for sipping coffee in the morning while watching the S.S. Badger begin its daily journey across Lake Michigan and in the evening watching the gorgeous sunsets over the lake. In addition to the condo itself, its location is superb--within walking distance of city, beach, and a variety of delightful restaurants. We're already looking forward to our next stay there!
Ludington is a charming town and with its dunes, lighthouses, and 8 miles of white sand beaches, we find it to be reminiscent of a New England seaside town. The location of this condo in downtown Ludington is ideal, as it is only a few minutes walk to so many places:
• A wide variety of shops (antiques, clothing, grocery, natural food and wellness, sporting goods and outdoor outfitters); restaurants; pubs; cafes; ice cream parlor; book store; and galleries
• The beach, marina, Badger ferry harbor where you can participate in the ritual of seeing the ship off as it departs for its sail to Manitowoc, or greeting it upon its return
• The waterfront playground and sculpture park where there are lots of benches to sit and relax and watch your children play or take in the beautiful sunsets and boats sailing by
