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 is so peacefull looking out over the water and seeing the herons and eagles. It is surrounded by trees and has a long private driveway and a large area for parking. The cottage itself is large and has a great layout. There is a big living area with room to watch the satellite TV or to sit and play a game at the coffee table. There is also a pretty large dining table with room for at least 6 and a smaller kitchen table to use as a kids table. It is good for larger groups or families. The appliances are new & clean including a washer and drier which is very convenient. The decor is a bit rustic and old but the furniture is functional. The deck over looking the water is very large and is perfect for dining al fresco. There is an outdoor table and a BBQ provided. The back gate on the deck was broken for our stay but the owner has arranged for it to be fixed right away. We needed more sheets for our stay so we went into Bridgewater to get more but there were lots of blankets and comforters. There are two vacuum cleaners provided and cleaning products are under the sink if you need them. Lots of dishes and cutlery as well as pots and pans and small appliances. During our stay we found the tap water to be a bit smelly. It is safe to drink but we chose to buy bottled water. The owner has arranged for a filter system to solve that problem. There are cottages on either side of this property one is 200 feet away and the other is 60 feet away. The beds are well used but are fine for a vacation unless you have a bad back. This area is spectacular it is close to amazing beaches and rivers. There are loads of things to do including fishing, kayaking, hiking, clam digging, antiquing....the list goes on !! I do think the cottage is a bit expensive for what you get but with newer beds, new sheets and towels and a bit of sprucing up it would be a 5 star ! The owner is very good and is open and available anytime and responds very quickly to any questions or issues you may have. All that is needed is a bit of updating and refinement.

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.
