Why Chandra Bunker chose Western Michigan

This property has been in my family for many years. We have always enjoyed it and are in a busy time in our lives. So we decided to open it up for others to enjoy.

What makes this cottage unique

This property has a very peaceful feeling about it. I like to sit on the porch and listen to the wind in the trees. It is a great place to relax and kick back.

average rating of 4.75 based on 8 reviews

This cozy cottage was great!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful land and comfortable cabin for peace and quiet

  • 4 of 5

We had a great family reunion here and most loved the gorgeous dense forests and meadows on all that beautiful acreage. We took walks or just sat and listened to the quiet of nature with forest animals making their occasional appearances. It is also very convenient to all the services and shopping in Ludington, many small lakes and the Lake Michigan beaches. We loved the new Maker Space in Ludington, a place to go work on projects, learn new crafts or just build things under the guidance of experts. The cabin was clean, comfortable and well-furnished, though small for the 5 adults we had staying there. It would be great for a family with some smaller bodies in the mix. The only things on our wish list would be good reading lights in the main living area, a reliable source for TV channels, and screens on the windows in the living/dining room so we could open those windows on the hots days/nights we had.

We'd certainly recommend it for others, and our relatives in the area were happy to know about such a nice place for their guests in the future.

Charming and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this charming cottage! It had the private, secluded atmosphere we were looking for, but was conveniently close to Lake Michigan and downtown Ludington. We look forward to future stays!

Peaceful and kid friendly!

  • 5 of 5

Usually vacationing with small children can't be described as peaceful, but we all felt that this vacation was! Two families with three children ranging from 1-4 fairly comfortably enjoyed this property for four nights. The highlights for us were the washer and dryer, air conditioner, modern and clean kitchen, a safe place for kids to be outside, and the peaceful atmosphere. Even though the temperature outside wasn't so hot, having the air conditioner really cooled down the place comfortably and quickly in the afternoons. Having the washer and dryer available was really nice when we ran though laundry quicker than we planned, often the case with little ones. We cooked all our meals at the house and were pleased with the clean and fully adequate kitchen. Counter space was enough for our needs and the dishwasher was a great plus! Mostly we all appreciated that the house was in so private and quiet a location. It's set back on a nice long driveway from an already quiet dirt road. Listening to the wind in the trees was lovely, and not having to worry that our kids would be hit by a car the moment they stepped foot from the door was wonderful. The place was clean and tidy and also not so cluttery that we had to move many things from our busy one year old. Luddington wasn't far away by car (less than ten minutes) but mostly we enjoyed the Manistee state forest beach, a good twenty minutes north.

Cozy, clean and everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! My husband, myself and 4 grown kids spent 4 nights. The house was very cozy and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed. There was a couch and 2 chairs so we were a little short for seats while playing games in the evening. We enjoyed meteor showers from the patio. And during the day we traveled 8 minutes to the ludington state park for a great beach and hiking. we would recommend to others

Great value

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful cottage, perfect location!

We are a family of five and loved exploring the property and playing in the sand pits! It was nice to be so close to Ludington without being in the the heart of the busyness. The cottage itself was nice, clean and well maintained.
