About Kevin and Paula Palmiter

We absolutely love the Ludington area and this cottage is perfect for summer family vacations. We also own and operate two neighboring properties KP's Guest House VRBO # 421985 and KP's Hilltop Hideaway VRBO #788726.

Kevin and Paula Palmiter purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Kevin and Paula Palmiter chose Ludington

A relaxed and comfortable family friendly vacation home situated in the desirable upper Hamlin Lake area. Quaint lakeside setting in a peaceful neighborhood gets you away from it all but is still close enough to enjoy all the activities in downtown Ludington and neighboring areas. Request a reservation and start planning your trip now by going to or for more information about the area.

What makes this cottage unique

Great place with tons of room. Lots of outdoor space to enjoy. A really quick drive to get to the state park. The owner has all the bases covered with everything you will need away from home.

We had a wonderful vacation this week staying in your cottage. We loved your cottage, it had everything we needed. We loved the lake view, the fire pit and hot tub. We made many happy memories here and hope to make more in the future!

Has everything you will need for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a family vacation. The owners have done a very good job thinking about the guests staying in their cabin. There is ample space, hooks, outlets, towels, blankets, places to sleep, movies for the kids, books and much more. I would highly recommend it!

Firepit Family

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this cottage for a family vacation. It was extremely clean, updated and tastefully decorated. Everything you could ask for in a home away from home. Kitchen was fully stocked with anything you might need and then some. Plenty of room on the three floors of living space for the entire family to enjoy but our favorite space was the secluded and private brick paver firepit and backyard. We had a fire there almost every night reliving the day with stories and a drink or two!

Fabulous time with plenty of things to do in the Ludington area and we would highly recommend this property to anyone.

We enjoyed our week stay verry much.

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal for our family re-union holiday.

Our family like to eat in and found the kitchen very well equipped for our head cook to serve us all with a great variety of meals.

We also like to play a card game called Michigan Rummy, and the living room table was ideal.

When we arrived we were met by Paula and her husband who made us feel very welcome. The customer service provided, with details of the accommodation were excellent, and we found the place very clean, and well maintained.

We are planning a future visit to Ludington, and will recommend this property to our group.
