About Marta

Mike and I both work in Ludington and have called Ludington our home for over 15 years. We live here year round so we take full advantage of our beautiful lakes in the summer and also all the shoveling due to the lake effect snow that comes our way. We love the small community and the luxury of seeing friends when we are shopping or drop in at one of the local establishments to have a cocktail.

We have traveled many, many places and we are always happy to be able to come back to our home on Hamlin Lake.

Marta purchased this house in 2014

Why Marta chose Ludington

We love living on this little body of water and when our neighbor approached us with the option to purchase her home, we jumped on the opportunity.

We want to give others the opportunity to relax and enjoy what we believe is a great place to live. We bought this property so we could share our little piece of heaven with others.

Since this is a new property for us, we already completed many updates to the home and will continue this year on additional updates to improve the comforts for our guests.

What makes this house unique

Hamlin Lake-South Bayou is a spectacular lake for swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding and fishing. Once you cross through the bridges, you have access to Hamlin Lake where you can enjoy endless hours of boating, tubing and the magnificent sand dunes along with a waterside restaurant and access to the State Park.

To gain access to Hamlin Lake, you will need to go through two bridges which accommodate smaller boats without a problem. We have a Four Winns 180 Horizon boat and we are able to float through both bridges without any issues. The dimensions of our boat is LOA 18', Beam 7' 7" and Total Height 4'9"

This property could not have been any better!! It was very clean & well maintained inside & out. Owner was close by to answer any questions. I couldn't believe how many beach towels were provided & plenty of dishes, pans, towels, etc. Owner is very thoughtful of each detail & of any need that might arise such as bug spray, sunscreen, baby cups & bibs and so much more. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone. Our teen-age grandkids loved the paddle boards & kayaks. Enough room that 11 adults did not feel we got in each others way.

We have stayed in many VRBO's and I'll have to say this experience was top notch.

Marta has everything needed in this home and the access to the lake was so relaxing. We have several in our group that had never been to Michigan so we were planning on traveling to mackinaw, sleeping bear dunes etc to give them a little better view and all they wanted to do was hang at the house, fish, kayak and canoe. The lay out of the house is great for a larger group.....den is the opposite end of the bedrooms and den downstairs. P.s. She is very babyfied too. Porta crib, highchair, sippy cups.....Thanks again!

We love everything about spending a week on the bayou in June.

The facility is nearly perfect for us, and Marta makes it even

better. We are re-upped for next year.

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Marta and Mike lovely vacation rental. We absolutely love our time spent here. My husband and I rent quite a few vacation homes, this is our absolute favorite. The house is perfect, always very clean, beds are comfy, houses is very roomy. The layout is great, we have family visit while we are here, never feel crowded at all. Oh, can't forget the view, so wonderful to have a nice cup of coffee while looking out over the water. Marta and Mike are always available if you have any questions, or need help with anything. If I could rate our overall stay ten stars I sure would.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with our adult kids and grand kids at this hideaway and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The owner met us when we arrived, gave us tour, had reading material for us about things to do in the area, and even had fresh homemade cookies for us.

The place is very clean! The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, utensils, cooking tools - everything you need. There was even a big basket full of clean beach towels for us to use.

The owner is very easy to work with, very accommodating and we highly recommend this place!
