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"

Fantastic property and owner!
My family and I have been renting properties across the US for some time now. Without doubt, Marta and her "Ludington Hideaway" rate among the best we have stayed in! Why? ATTENTION TO DETAIL! From the warm welcome (the homemade cookies are great!) and spotless accommodations to the great location and "they've thought of EVERYTHING" amenities, this is a property you will NEVER regret selecting. Seriously, it's that good! Thank you Marta, we certainly look forward to renting with you again!
Your making me blush...The Huge "Thank-You" goes to you two and your family. The home was perfection after you departed!! 99.9% of the towels washed and folded in the laundry room--really!! I just love guests such as yourselves. I am thrilled our home to met your expectations. I would be honored to have the opportunity to host you and your family again...fresh baked cookies will be waiting:)
Absolutely perfect place to celebrate my mom’s birthday. Check in was amazing. The place is fantastic. It’s a huge yet cozy home that was wonderful for 3 generations to spend time together. Beds were comfortable, decor was delightful, the hostess was amazing. We loved being on the water. We will be back for a week next year.
I am so happy our home worked for you and your family. I big Happy Birthday again to your mom. You and your family were a delight to host. I look forward to hosting you again!!
My family had a great time staying at Marta’s house . There was plenty of room for everyone. Everything we needed was provided. It was a very relaxing week.
You and your family were 5 Star guests!! Thank you for choosing our home again for your family gathering. Everyone is welcome back anytime.
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.
You are so sweet...thank you for all the kind words. I am happy you and your family enjoyed our home. Our goal is to make all our guests feel at home during their stay...maybe they will come back again..hint hint!! Thank you for being such wonder house guests! We would love to have you as our guests again.
"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!
