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 Northwest

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.

average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews

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.

What a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Another great week this year with Paula and Kevin.

The cottage is wonderful for large parties of 6-8. Good room in living area with a large table for eating or cards/games. The kitchen is top knotch with everything you can think of.

The baths are clean with showers and a tub up. The TVs have ample number of channels for all ages and interests....

Hamlin Lake/ Ludington is a great area for a week or two with fishing, boating and golf. The area has many kid attractions and side day trips are easily accessible to dunes, casino and much more...

Paula and Kevn are great to deal with and accessible by phone or email.

Visitors from the South

The house was very well decorated, clean and comfortable. Had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Wish we had had more time to stay there. Would love to see pictures of the huge sugar maples in the yard with their fall colors! Cannot imagine how beautiful the area is during the fall months.

Lovely Lake View Property-- All the benefits of Hamlin Lake at an Affordable Rate!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at KP's Lake View cottage in July and we had an an absolutely fabulous time! We love to be by the water but don't necessarily want to spend the BIG buck$$$. The property location with beautiful Hamlin Lake views was just perfect for us. The cottage is so clean and cozy and offered enough space for everyone in our party of six to have privacy and space to relax. The back yard patio and fire pit were definitely a highlight for our group. Evenings by the campfire and morning coffee on the deck enjoying the lake views were so relaxing. The neighborhood was surprisingly peaceful and quiet and the neighbors were so friendly! The property is so close to the many Ludington area activities, restaurants and shopping but still tucked away in a very desirable area where you truly feel like you are enjoying "up north" living! The best beaches in Michigan are just a short drive. The owners have provided a tidy and well appointed respite for a truly relaxing family getaway. Looking forward to returning again next year! Thank you for an awesome vacation stay Kevin and Paula!

Quiet Location Perfect for Family

  • 5 of 5

I am always nervous when I make reservations site unseen. All that silly worrying for nothing! KP's Cottage was EXACTLY what was promised and more! The location was so picturesque. Quiet, safe and friendly neighborhood. It was close enough to town to easily access the amazing local beaches, food and shops but still far enough away to make it feel like we were away. The cottage was well decorated, clean, and equipped with anything and everything you could possibly need on a vacation. We cooked most of our meals in and enjoyed the view from the deck.

I highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a peaceful vacation with a fabulous view! Thank you again for such a wonderful stay!!

KPs Hamlin Lakeview Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We found the cottage to be in excellent condition which accommodated our large party very well.... The decor is great, the kitchen was well stocked with all necessities. We very much enjoyed both the brick backyard landscaping and spent our happy hours on the front deck watching the water.

Ludington has a vast variety of eateries, and good shopping. The State Park has many hiking trails with swimming at Lake Michigan Beaches. Or rent a pontoon boat at Barnharts and spend hours cruising Hamlin Lake you might even catch the eagle prowling the skies. Fishing is very good for bass, our favorite and if golf is your thing a nice new course within four minutes around the corner.

Would certainly do it again..... And highly reccommend ......
