KP's Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely delighted with KP's Cozy Cabin. It was much more than described. It was immaculate and had a kitchen that had everything you could need. The full size washer / dryer was a great convenience.

It is a short ride to beautiful Ludington and the state park there is not to be missed. The free parks and beaches are great for all ages. The restaurants in town

Are very reasonable with great service .

Kevin and Paula have gone out of their way to have many extras in the cabin to makes it like " home"!The weather was not the best while we were there so we loved the cable TV, WiFi and the great furnace.

We live in FL but will be sure to return here anytime we are in MI in the summer.

Be sure to check it out you will not be disappointed. Mary Lou and Don
