4 Bedroom/3 Full Bath With Walk- Out To The Water
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"

Home away from home
We have been staying at rental properties in the Ludington area for several years, and Ludington Hideaway is really the best we have experienced so far. The home is quite spacious, and is obviously well-cared for. Pretty much anything you might need is here, from the very well-stocked kitchen, to bikes in the garage, to all sorts of amenities large and small that you might forget to bring (or didn't even realize you needed). Clearly, a lot of thought has gone into this property.
As for the area itself, the bayou was quiet and peaceful. It is fairly close to downtown, but also close to Ludington State Park. We enjoyed walking and biking around the local roads, kayaking on the water, and fishing.
Also, the homemade cookies? They were amazing!
Thank you, we really enjoyed our stay.
"Happiness at the Hideaway"
When the ENTIRE family (ages ranging from 4-71) all insist that we book the Hideaway for 2020, I was one VERY happy Gigi!
The house was spotless; the cupboards were well stocked and organized exactly as I would organize them. The yards were perfectly groomed and lovely.
We enjoyed kayaking and our 8 year-old granddaughter showed us all how to use the stand up paddle board. =0
We went to the State Park, swam in Hamlin Lake, hiked some trails and saw Bambi's Mamma while we were hiking. We also saw a Garder snake that fascinated our grandson.
Marta was a fabulous hostess. Our daughter's only critique is that she wished there had been a "double batch" of Marta's homemade cookies! (I was glad that there wasn't!! I was eating two at a time!)
We tied up two boats: fished and went tubing. The kiddos played on the "Lilly Pad" that our son & daughter-in-law had the foresight to bring. I'm sure that the squeals of delight were heard all around the lake. The grands did some outstanding cannonballs!
We loved it...and we will NOT be giving up our time at the Hideaway any time in the near future!
Thank you, Marta
Well, it sounds like you and your family had a stupendous vacation. YEAH!!! I can not be happier. All of you were such wonderful house guests-thank you for that. All those kids were so sweet... I definitely look forward to having you as our guests for future years--that week is yours from now on. Thank you for choosing our home for your family vacation.
Fantastic Place for Families
Ludington Hideway was amazing place for our family. Lots of room for our teenagers, their friends, and us to break out and have our own space. The two separate living rooms was perfect. The boys had the downstairs to themselves and the girls claimed the upstairs. My husband and I got the solitude of the deck.
The access to water with the Kayaks was incredible. This allowed the teenagers time to be outdoors and explore.
The fire pit was a huge hit for making smores.
The kitchen had more than ample utensils, appliances, and seasonings for a night of cooking in.
The washer and dryer allowed us to pack lighter and keep from having a mound of laundry when we got home.
Marta was incredible. From her fantastic local tips, delicious homemade cookies, and recommendations for a local baker to make our daughter's birthday cake.
If you are looking for a place to explore the Michigan look no further. Ludington Hideway is definitely the place you should stay.
Note: There are plenty of personal touches for families with younger children (life vests, toys, etc.)
So happy our home met your expectations and your family enjoyed their stay. The kids were so sweet in offering to help me the with kayaks:) You and your family were dream guests. Everyone is most definitely welcome anytime!
beautiful everything we could have wished for
We stayed at this property for a 90th birthday celebration for my Father-in-Law. It was a family celebration and we had a great time. Fishing was good and Dad enjoyed being back on Hamlin Lake after fishing there for many years. The house was great we had lots of room for the eight of us to spread out and play games or watch TV. We love loved visiting the quaint little towns they were all so friendly. Marta and Mike were the perfect hosts and Marta even baked a cake for Dad it was a big hit. Us girls love the decor lots of great ideas to bring home. Thanks again for a great time. We came away with lots of great memories. The Truex Family
Thank you for all the kind words. We are so happy everyone enjoyed their stay and the "cake". So glad the forecast cooperated with your fishing plans. It was such a pleasure to meeting everyone and have a chance to visit. We appreciate everyone being such wonderful house guests and welcome you back next time Hamlin lake calls.
We were here on an annual girls weekend, and had a great experience. Lots of room to spread out. Well stocked kitchen. Bedding was very comfortable. We were impressed when we walked in, bright and fresh. And fantastic brownies! (Oops, secret’s out)
We highly recommend, and would happily return!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Looks like it may be brownies for all now:)
Thrilled everyone had a great experience and enjoyed the our home. This is exactly why we continue year after year. Thank you & all the girls for being such awesome house guests and we would love to have you back again.
Everything that we could have wanted or needed was provided. Neat, clean and in working order. Great setting. The owner went out of her way to make sure we were 100% satisfied. Cannot think of anything that would have made our stay better: Very highly recomend this property.
So happy you and your family enjoyed your stay. If only I could of controlled the weather... It was a pleasure to meet your family and thank you for being such wonderful house guests. You left our home in excellent condition. We would love to have everyone back again next summer:)
