Traveling through northwest Michigan and if you are near Ludington, this is the B&B to stay at. Great historic home built by a lumber baron in the early 1900's and they have retained many go the wonderful qualities of the era. We stayed in the Lighthouse room. Room is small, but fit our budget. Very clean with very comfortable bed... More

My husband and I have stayed here several times. We love staying in the King's suite. It has a king bed, sitting room, a balcony, a circular shower, and tubs. Gary and Sue Ann are always hospitable, and accommodating. They have allowed us a late check out. Bicycles are available if you want to ride. It is convenient to town;... More

We enjoyed our stay, the host family is fantastic! We stayed in the King Suite (and the bathroom is a treat), and had the house to ourselves, such a luxury. The breakfasts were excellent, beautifully presented and prepared to our requests. On our last day, before departing on the ferry, the host was kind enough to include my mother-in-law for... More

I recently stayed at the Cartier Mansion Bed & Breakfast during a recent Photography Class with Todd & Brad Reed which was held at the Cartier location. The accommodations are very impressive with much of the Mansion retaining the original woodwork, lighting and extensive detailing. Each room on the lower level was finished in a separate wood and was gorgeous.... More

I highly recommend this place! House is beautiful! Service was fantastic! Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious and early enough for us to catch the Badger Ferry at 8:45 am (if you request it). Nice amenities available like coffee, tea, movies, and pop corn. About a 10 minute walk to beach and downtown so it's a great... More

She gave us a guided tour of all three floors of the mansion and really made us feel at home. The King Suite was fabulous, with three... More

The Blue Silk room is a beautifully appointed room with private bath. The room was extremely clean, bed super comfortable. Easy Wi Fi access, cable TV and DVD's available. Outside the room is a well appointed guest station with coffee, tea, hot water, pop corn, microwave, ice and snack bars. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. Breakfast is superb!!

Ashley met us and gave us a short history and tour of the house. Quite interesting. Lavish rooms with beautiful wood everywhere! A short walk to the downtown area. We stayed in Kate's room (Blue Silk). Bed was comfortable, and I soon learned how to make coffee using a French Press machine. Breakfast was good, and served in the Library... More
