Our home was built by Antoine Cartier, a lumber baron. He had come to the Ludington area from Quebec in 1852 to seek his fortune and in 1878 built this magnificent home for his wife, Eliza and their nine children. The house is a three story Victorian set on a beautiful landscaped corner lot with ample off-street parking. We are conveniently located a short walk from Lake Michigan, quaint shops, many fine restaurants and the Pere Marquette harbor. Our location is ideal for the many activities available on the wonderful west coast of Michigan. We invite you to stay at the Ludington House and enjoy our herringbone patterned hardwood floors, gorgeous carved cherry and golden oak woodwork, 12-foot ceilings, fascinating brass light fixtures that once were gas, our walnut staircase to the third floor, Italian marble fireplace and beautiful stained glass windows. The charm of Ludington's bygone era awaits you. Each of our comfortable rooms includes a private bathroom, shower or tub, cable TV and wireless internet access. As a guest in our home, you will also enjoy our fluffy robes and towels, as well as amenities by Bath & Bodyworks.

Pleasant stay!

3.4 on May 27, 2013

We were somewhat disappointed by our room.... There was no window... Only a skylight and no wi-fi. The room, however, was clean and well decorated. The breakfasts were very good and the overall atmosphere was welcoming!

A wonderful place to stay.

I found Ludington House on this website. I made reservations for just one night, I was able to get away one day earlier and showed up in Ludington not knowing if a room was available. Kris welcomed me and was able to put me in a room. I was very pleased with the room and the service. I have to say that I felt very comfortable. The house is very well kept and breakfast was very good. I don't think any one would be unhappy with a stay at Ludington House.

Best B&B in Ludington

5 on March 23, 2011

We stayed at the Ludington House for one night in March 2011 and the bed and breakfast far exceeded our expectations. The rooms were set up with beautiful pieces of the time and had the modern conviences of today like wi fi and cable tv. The hosts, Kris and Bill were great, they gave a tour of their home and made us feel welcome. The full breakfast the next morning was a real treat, it started with baked grapefruit, followed by the main course of stuffed peach french toast, bacon and several fruits. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone and will definetly return.

We have been "B&B" it since 1989. We've stayed at some wonderful homes and inns and Room #4 is right up there with the best. Ludington house is a lovely victorian furnished with some antiques. Our room was clean with a comfortable bed. The original bathroom tub was wonderful to soak in (very fluffy towels). Our host Bill and hostess Kris were very warm and friendly. Bill makes a delicious breakfast. Chris & Gary Wilmot WI.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here, and by far it was a memoriable memory we have of a tax life together. We are going to make it a mission to stay here every year for our anniversary. Pleasant location, and above average hospitality. Would recommend this location to anyone. Enjoy!!!!

Our Trip with Mother

My sister and I took our mother to Ludington to visit her home when she was young. We stayed at the B&B and enjoyed a good night's sleep and a wonderful breakfast. The Innkeeper was friendly and very helpful. We had a wonderful time.
