We recently spent a lovely long weekend at the Inn at Ludington. After talking with Kathy on the phone when I was making the reservation, I had a sense that we would be enjoying our stay, and that certainly was the case. Kathy is a superb hostess, and she and Ola make sure their guests are well looked after. The old house has been lovingly maintained, and each room is a treasure. The breakfasts were superb, each of the three we enjoyed different, delicious, and with a bit of a surprise. And my sister and her husband (area residents) really enjoyed the breakfast experience (Kathy invited them to join us) and hospitality. Our stay really made our visit to Ludington memorable and most enjoyable. Thanks, Kathy, for this wonderful visit.

Fantasic Surprise!

Every hotel in Ludington was booked. It just so happened that the Inn had the loft available for us - 4 adults and 2 children. It was like being back in time but with all modern amenities. The smell was so much like home. The room was impeccable. The dining...fabulous!! I cannot say enough good about The Inn at Ludington!! Coupled with the great atmosphere of the's a must-do!!

Inn at Ludington offer a lately Victorian B&B just a lovely ten-minute walk from one of Michigan's best (family) beaches. The owner is friendly and breakfast is delicious. Also close to a great state park.

A/C did not work properly. Bathroom was tiny -- no paper holder for the t.p. -- no vent -- no smoke detectors. Breakfasts were outstanding! Snacks were outstanding! Snacks were available. Room was clean -- bed ok.

Everything was wonderful!
