My husband & I recently spent a weekend at the LampLighter Bed & Breakfast. The experience was wonderful & we are anxious to visit this B & B again. Jane & Bill were extremely accommodating-and made us feel like family. Maggie was an added delight. We were very comfortable in the honeymoon suite. The room as well as the entire... More

My husband and I were vacationing in Ludington for our 2 year anniversary. I researched all the different bed and breakfast's around the area and I'm glad that I chose this one. Jane and Bill were wonderful! Jane's breakfast's were so delicious, and her ingredients are local which is what I enjoyed. And Bill was wonderful and extremely kind and... More

I had the unfortunate experience of having to try a case in Mason county circuit court this past January during about 10 feet of daily snow, 60 mph straight line winds off the lake, -19 degrees...and this lovely b & b is only three blocks from the courthouse! They took great care of me and my associate, let us take... More

My fiancee and I stayed here over the weekend. All I can say was that it was perfect. Jane, Bill and Maggie were delightful. The house and rooms were splendid. I absolutely loved the breakfast by candlelight. The meal was prepared with great care and pride. It is not everyday you can go from a fast paced lifestyle and step... More

I almost hate to detail all of the great care that Bill and Jane took of me while I was staying with them, as so much of it was personalized to my own needs and desires, I would expect that everyone's experience would be quite unique to them. But over the course of a couple of weeks, they helped me... More

This was our second stay at the Lamplighter B&B and we were once again charmed and delighted. The breakfasts were excellent, and our hosts Jane & Bill went out of their way to make sure we were all comfortable. Great experience.

Had a wonderful experience with Jane and Bill (and Maggie!). Breakfast was great and the room was clean and well appointed. This was our first B&B experience in a long time and Lamplighter proved to be a great choice. I'd recommend it as the place to stay when you're in Lundinton.

We like to stay at Bed and Breakfast's, the "Lamplighter Inn" is the "Best" we've ever seen. Not only are the rooms and furnishings beautiful but the defining difference is the "Gourmet Breakfast". Inn Keepers Bill & Jane Carpenter start breakfast preparation at 4am. The table setting with antique china is magnificent, the attention to detail and serving the guests... More

We stayed at the Lamplighter for two nights and had a wonderful time. Bill and Jane were great hosts, as was their dog Maggie, and were eager to help us find places to eat and different landmarks to see. We will be staying here the next time we are in Ludington!

Jane and Bill were excellent hosts. Excellent breakfast. Rained the entire weekend and they gave great tips for spending "indoor" time at several locations. Rooms were well appointed and beds were comfortable we were even given options of different pillows (soft/hard). Will definitely stay here again.
