Ludington Beach House gets great reviews and is a Super Host Award winner.

Near the Beach… and So Much More!

As if being located so near our beautiful beach wasn’t enough, the Ludington Beach House is just five short blocks from downtown Ludington which boasts an abundance of shops, bars, restaurants, frozen yogurt and ice cream parlors, and art galleries.

And Stearns Park doesn’t only offer the beautiful blue waters of Lake Michigan and an extensive sugar sand beach. Also located within the park are a newly remodeled mini golf course run by the local Jaycees, a skate park, playground, shuffleboard courts, three handicapped-accessible walkways to the water’s edge, two concession stands, and more.

If lighthouses are of interest, the North Breakwater Lighthouse is located within Stearns Park and offers tours during the summer. Take the short, half mile walk down the break wall to the lighthouse and watch the arrival and departure of the Lake Michigan Carferry, go fishing, or simply enjoy one of Ludington’s breathtaking sunsets. Big Sable Point Lighthouse is located in the Ludington State Park, just 3.6 miles from the motel; and you can also check out the North Pierhead Lighthouse in Manistee, the Little Sable Point Lighthouse in Silver Lake, and the Pentwater Pierhead Light, all less than 45 minutes away. The Lake Michigan Carferry is located just 3 minutes from the motel by car or bicycle.

    “This is the second time this year my husband and I stayed at the Ludington Beach House....We were so impressed by the cleanliness, decor, comfortable luxurious bedding and most of all the owner(s) friendly and warm personality...We loved this place so much we brought a large group to Ludington and everyone stayed at the Ludington Beach House.”
    –Menette C.

    “My husband and I just got home from our stay at the Ludington Beach House and this place does not disappoint. We stayed for a long weekend for our anniversary. This property is in the perfect location...short walk to shops and restaurants, putt-putt golf and the beach is right across the street. Ludington State Park is just a short drive north. Rooms are very clean and well stocked with towels and toiletries. We will definitely be staying here again when we visit Ludington and will recommend to our family and friends.”

    “My husband and I and our two young boys just stayed here and LOVED it! Ben was very friendly, professional, and accommodating. The key pad entry is a fantastic idea because we didn't have to worry about keeping track of a key at the beach. The room was very clean, comfortable, and cheerfully decorated. My parents and I used to stay at this hotel many, many years ago, and I wanted to keep the tradition alive with our two boys. However, when we tried to stay here PRIOR to the current owners, it was sad as it was desperately in need of updates. I'm thrilled that the new owners have invested in the property as our family will definitely be able to keep the tradition going now. You can't beat the location...or the 83 degree heated pool. We will be back!!!”
