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.

We were so impressed with the cleanliness, everything that was available in the kitchen and, most of all, the incredible view. Sitting on the porch in the morning with coffee, watching the deer in the front yard and the horses next door, gazing at the view in the distance...hard to tear ourselves away to see the many things this area has to offer. I didn't want to leave - that's the sign of a great place to vacation.

Located just at the other side of the bay from town, a 5 minute drive in. You can't go wrong staying in this home, would recommend in a heartbeat. We were a family of 5, but this home could easily accommodate many more.

The bedrooms are a good size, and all the beds were very comfy, which was really welcomed after long days of sightseeing! Great location, and allows you to choose the scenic lighthouse route, or the highways when you want to head out. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Shireen!
