Weather

Ludington experiences cold winters, with average January daytime temperatures in the upper 20s. Summers are mild, with typical daytime July temperatures about 80 degrees. The best time to visit Ludington is during the autumn months of September and October, while the air and water temperatures are still warm and the seasonal changes cause the deciduous trees to turn colors. If you prefer wintertime activities, consider visiting in late February to early March, when there is still snow but temperatures have moderated from their seasonal lows.

How to Get There

You can get to Ludington by driving your own private car or a rental car. US 10 enters the city from the east, connecting to Bay City in Michigan's Thumb. US 31 is the primary north to south route, and MI 116 connects to Ludington State Park. You can also use the ferry service through the SS Badger, which crosses Lake Michigan to Wisconsin. If you prefer to fly to Ludington, you can use Manistee County-Blacker Airport (MBL) in nearby Manistee. This airport is about 35 miles from Ludington, so you would need to arrange for ground transportation such as a rental car to get you the rest of the way into the city.

It was perfect, as I was sightseeing and visiting in the area. So close to the beautiful Spectacle Lakes. Lunenburg was so beautiful and peaceful and friendly!. The sea and village and the different activities in the area kept me busy every day. The owners were so friendly and a joy to visit with. Enjoyed feeding their many ducks that visited everyday !!!!!! When I come back for a visit, hopefully with my wife, we will definitely be staying here again.

We loved the decor, so eclectic and soothing. Our vacation felt like we were visiting a friends home rather than a rental. Lunenb erg is a charming, friendly town and Mahone Bay is so pretty. The Rose Bay grocery had any extras needed and lobster from Crowders was the best I've ever tasted.

Our group of 9 stayed here for a week in Nova Scotia and we were comfortable and cozy. Kate was the great host - good communication, provided lots of details about home and surrounding area and was very quick to respond when we had a question. The home is brand new and was very clean. The rear yard backs directly onto the Ocean - we spent plenty of time in the water as a result. A 5 minute drive takes you into Mahone Bay complete with lots of little shops, bakeries, restaurants and lovely little harbour. We found Mahone Bay to be centrally located for day trips to Lunenburg, Annapolis Valley Wineries and Peggy's Cove. We did drive to Digby (Freeport) to do some whale watching - this was a wonderful experience but the driving made for a long day. Overall I would recommend this Home in a heart beat.
