About the Property

3 bedroom. 1 bath cottage overlooking Hamlin Lake

'Falconhurst' was the name the Swiss Family Robinson gave to their home in the trees . . . an overlook that served as a home base for adventures. Our cottage is high on a bluff amongst the shade on the west shore of Hamlin Lake. Below the bluff is one of the few true beaches on the lake, where the shallow water, unencumbered by a breakwater, gently gets deeper over a long distance at a gradual pace. Behind the cottage is one of the highest sand dunes in the region of the Nordhouse Dunes and Ludington State Park.
Most of the western shore of Hamlin Lake is part of the state park. Indeed, it is across the street and one can hike to the lake's dam in about 30 minutes. . . .it is a quiet area yet remarkably close to Ludington for a rainy-day movie or a sundae at the House of Flavors.

There are three Bedrooms, The front room overlooking the lake has a queen. BR #2 has two singles, and BR #3 has bunks. An extra 'roll-a-way' and a couple of cots are in the closet. We have added a full-sized Aero- bed as well. A large deck on the front provides a shaded/relaxing place to overlook the lake. The screened porch is another place to relax and there is a porch swing where, as kids, we spent many hours.

Amenities include Cable TV, a coffee pot, dishwasher, and microwave . . .as well as a stove and oven of course. The living room area has couches, a fireplace, and table. Still, the major advantage is the relative solitude near the lake and state park.

Falconhurst is a rustic cottage on a hill overlooking the lake. If you have trouble with stairs, Falconhurst, is probably not a good choice. Falconhurst is a terrific choice for families with school age children. It is a cottage on a lake next to the sand dunes with great hikes not far from the door so Ffalconhurst is favored by active outdoorsy families or couples.
