About the Property

1900 Sq Ft Cottage With 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom With Walkout Lakefront Access

Come and enjoy this rare combination of vintage charm and modern amenities with 200 ft. of expansive walkout water frontage. Located on a quiet narrow paved lane that curves along the lake and makes for lovely morning or evening strolls, the cottage's quaint front porch welcomes you into a main floor that opens out to high ceilings, hardwood floors, and gorgeous views of the lake. The spacious, fully-stocked country kitchen with modern appliances flows into the living room with granite and stone fireplace and comfortable oversized leather furniture. You'll have exclusive use of the lakeside yard, dock, and boat slip, and an easy-access boat launch is adjacent to property. Enjoy striking sunrise, sunset and night sky views as you grill out on the lakeside patio with fire pit and beautifully tiled picnic table. Play horseshoes, badminton, or croquet in the huge yard that's fenced in to keep your kids and/or pets safe (as long and they don't swim away!). If you need anything, your hosts are right next door in the caretaker's cabin, otherwise your privacy will be respectfully maintained.


That's just the house! Then there's the lake itself and all the water activities you can enjoy on it, the Ludington State Park that just a short boat- or car-ride away, and it's just a quick 15-minute drive into downtown Ludington for excellent shopping, dining, and other tourist attractions.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: Your hosts Will & Laurie (and their dogs Bruno & Mona) welcome you!

Why the Owner Chose Ludington, MI, USA:
Laurie and her parents moved from the Chicago area into this lovely home in 1976 when Laurie 12 years old, and she lived here until she graduated high school. In the 90s Laurie moved back to the area with her fiance Will, they got married in the yard by the water, and eventually inherited the home. With a growing family they added on the upstairs level, but once it was just the two of them again, they realized they could share their love of their home with others by renting it out weekly and staying in what used to be called the 'guest cottage' next door (now renamed it the 'caretaker's cabin'). Will and Laurie hope to see you soon!
