Very cozy small hotel in downtown Ludington. Friendly and with lots of charm. Very delicious breakfast provided by the nice lady innkeeper. Room 7 is the best and has many beds!! The area around also has some really great food places to check out! Recommend for sure if you’re looking for a nice calm place to stay.

We enjoyed a spacious second floor room; however, foot traffic overhead [a 3rd floor suite?] kept us awake until 1:00 a.m. and resumed by 8:00 a.m. It sounded like a child running back and forth and was quite problematic. The shower was small, worn, and dark.

I stayed here for two nights. The room was charming, filled with a feeling of old yet had the modern conveniences needed to enjoy the visit. I was greeted by the host, Wendy, when I got there. She made me feel very welcome and was so helpful with any questions I had. The breakfast is amazing! Sooo good! The bed was comfy! Overall very good experience

Aug. 31st. I stayed in the attic room with some friends. We enjoyed our stay, beautiful lodging and grounds. Very comfortable bedding, everything was clean, unique shower was nice. Hot breakfast brought to our room, perfect eggs with all the trimmings. The only thing that could have made my stay better would have been a bird feeder in the beautiful garden, where I enjoyed my coffee.

As a bed and "breakfast," I expect a hot breakfast, not a continental breakfast. We were told things had to be individually wrapped due to covid, etc. I don't think a bed and breakfast would fall under those restrictions. It's no different than a restaurant. We chose this place b/c of its rave reviews of breakfast to be highly disappointing. 1 glass of Milk, 1 glass of OJ, 2 Yogurts, 2 DINNER rolls, 2 wine glasses full of watermelon and blueberries is not sufficient. My friend and I consider that a diet breakfast. Where's the meat!? The first day, we did have some hot eggs which was nice! Day 2, no. A suggestion would be to offer 4 different breakfast meals that is due to the kitchen the night before. selections like: #1 2 eggs, bacon, toast #2 Pancake stack with fruit #3 Low Calorie option with yogurt, fruit and oatmeal #3 Belgian Waffle and sausage #4 Breakfast casserole and meat selection...something like that would have been amazing! we had to go out for breakfast both days after our breakfast snack.
