The Dock House - Upper Unit Next to the City Marina

Vacation home in Ludington with kitchen and patio
Great upper unit of this two unit house next to the City Marina where you can dock your boat and walk to the house. We are walking distance to the beach, harbor, the Badger and downtown. This listing is for the upstairs unit only. If you would like to rent the lower unit as well, it has a separate 2 bedroom 2 bath downstairs (listing 4813202) This cottage is a charming home with a small deck in the back. Some areas of the unit have sloped ceilings and could be an issue but not a hindrance for taller individuals. The cottage is fully furnished with a washer and dryer, cable TV, freezer in the basement, WIFI and a full kitchen with everything you need for cooking. If you don't want to cook, you are walking distance to the downtown area with some of the finest restaurants and bars. Take a walk along Pere Marquette lake or out to the lighthouse on Stearns Beach. So much to do and see just blocks away. With the Loomis boat launch just 2 blocks away, this is ideal for the fisherman in the group.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer washers/dryers and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas.

Bathrooms include showers and hair dryers. Cable television is provided.

Family time
Location was perfect for going to the beach, walking into town, and headed over to the park near the city marina. We had family come in on the badger and it was a 10 minute walk to the house. The house had everything we needed. The large front porch was our favorite gathering spot for our family!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect Location
The upstairs apartment at the Dock House was perfect for a girls weekend - walking distance to the beach, lighthouse, restaurants, shops, coffee, etc. The space itself was even better than advertised - plenty of room for 3 adults and 2 dogs and equipped with everything you could need. We loved our stay in Ludington and we will absolutely be back!

5/5 Excellent

Long weekend in Luddington
The property was as advertised. I'm 6'3" but felt fine everywhere in the property. Location was GREAT! Close to beach, marina, and easy walk to downtown. Sleeper bed and ottoman were comfortable for the kids. Comfortable for 4 and we would come back with our full family (5).

5/5 Excellent

perfect for the sibling reunion
Overall, very good. We rented the entire house for a reunion of 8 siblings and spouses. The house was located in easy walking distance to everything we needed and was close to sister #2's home. There were a few glitches but they were remedied and our stay was very enjoyable. Both units very clean and nicely decorated.

5/5 Excellent

Love Ludington's Dock House
Perfect location for our weeks stay: walking distance to the beach, parks, downtown shopping, restaurants, and taverns. Also, a short ride to the State park. Our first time to Ludington, and we loved it. Friendly folks, beautiful beaches, amazing sunsets, good food and drink, and very dog freindly. Our host Brian, was most accommodating. Checking in with us before, during and after our stay to make sure all our needs were met. The house was fully stocked with everything we needed and more. The front porch was the daily gathering point for the start and end of each day. Would highly recommend this charming vacation home.
