  • A well appointed beautiful historic home in the the perfect location!

    "We enjoyed our stay in this lovely well-appointed historical home. It was two blocks from the Breakwater lighthouse and sandy beaches of Lake Michigan, and only four blocks from downtown. The home was spacious and easily accommodated 8 of us. It could have held 2 or 3 more people with room to spare. All the beds were very comfortable and the rooms were air-conditioned if you prefer that to the gentle breezes off the lake. The outdoor space with a patio area and BBQ added to the comfortable accommodations. We would list it as 5 stars except that we accidentally washed one of their spa towels with our laundry, tuning it a grayish blue, which was understandably upsetting to the owners and they brought it to our attention. We paid for the replacement after questioning the price charged. Our intention wasn't to upset them with our questioning, we only wished to clarify and make it right. Nevertheless, a misunderstanding left both the owners and our party feeling badly about that incident. What can be said except that we're all human with human emotions and defenses. We hope that they forgive us the hard feelings caused by our actions, and that they prosper in their VRBO adventure. We can honestly say that the owners were gracious and helpful in every way. With a little more care on our part, our unfortunate event could have been easily avoided. We highly recommend this extraordinary home!"

  • Perfect for a low-key, tech-free family vacation

    "Our family of five (2 adults, 3 kids, ages 4, 8 and 12) was looking for a place to go where we could just relax, spend time together and forget our schedules and responsibilities. We are big fans of high-planning vacations, like Disney World, so we knew we needed someplace drastically different. In my research, I was looking for a place with water access (this cottage's private beach was a HUGE bonus), close to nature and far from heavy tourist spots (like south in St. Joseph or Grand Haven). When we discovered Hamlin Lake and Ludington State Park, we knew we had a winner. The cottage itself was perfect, and the owner's description was right on-- it is a rustic cabin in the woods. It had plenty of room for everyone to sleep and gave everyone their own space. We loved the screened-in porch, the chairs on the deck and the beach. The hardest part for our kids was dealing with the well water. We ended up using bottled water for brushing teeth, which helped. The semi-private beach (which is shared with a couple other homes) was one of the highlights of our trip. It got morning sun, until about 1 or 2 in the afternoon. We spent many days playing the the calm water (which was perfect for our 4 year old), using the kayak or paddle boards (perfect for our 8 and 12 year olds) and building sand castles. At night, we would go down to the beach to use the fire pit to roast hot dogs and s'mores. We took advantage of the proximity of Ludington State Park to hike the trails and run the dunes. We also drove a few miles down to the public Stearns Park beach to swim in Lake Michigan (which was much colder and rougher than Hamlin Lake)! One day, we rented a pontoon boat and took the kids tubing on Hamlin Lake. We loved how close everything was, and the list of ideas that the owner sent before our stay was perfect. We very much enjoyed House of Flavors, Chuck Wagon pizza and the food at Jamesport Brewery. From the first night there, our kids were already talking about coming back next year!"

  • This cozy cottage was great!

    "We loved the fact that the cottage was on plenty of beautiful, peaceful land for hiking, but close enough (10 minute drive) to Ludington for restaurants & beaches. It was completely equipped with all the amenities in case you wanted to stay in to make meals & was just down the street from a fresh market with all of Michigan's seasonal goodies. We had a great time (2 parents, 2 grandparents & two boys age 10 & 6) & would recommend staying here to anyone!"

  • Amazing property for the price!

    "Bernadine and Todd were extremely helpful answering all of my questions very quickly! The place was very nicely updated. No musty cabin smell at all. All in all this was a great experience and I hope to stay here again during one of my many trips to the area to play disc golf. Top notch experience!"
