Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Ludington, MI, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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"
