Parkview Cottages
Reviewed June 23, 2010

We had planned this trip, and stay at Parkview Cottages, last year, but had to cancel due to health problems. We rescheduled for a week beginning June 21.

We stayed in Cottage #1, and were very disappointed. Keep in mind that these are "historic" cottages. Cottage #1 seemed like it never saw sunshine, and everything inside seemed damp. Neither my husband or I slept well on the nights of June 21 and June 22. Even the sheets felt damp. There was a BIG step to get in the front door that my husband could not manage. The cottage is advertised on the internet as accommodating up to 3 people. With just the two of us, it was a VERY tight squeeze. They had updated the kitchen area which was beautiful.

We left and found other accommodations, which were very nice, at half the cost of the cottages. I thought the cottage would have a view of the City Park and Lake Michigan, but none of the cottages did. It's too bad.... the owner seemed very nice when dealing with her by email.

It has been a while since this review although I do remember the reservation.
It was a very humid/damp period of time that summer and I do understand how uncomfortable that may have been.
The step was a difficult one to maneuver and has since been addressed.

This was a perfect place for my husband, myself & our 1 year old daughter. We stayed at the Parkview Cottages which were 1 block from Lake Michigan. It was like our home away from home. We could walk up to the lake to watch the sunset, walk out to a lighthouse, play at the park, enjoy the beach & watch the ferry from WI come in for the night. Just a 10 minute ride from the cottage is a Ludington State Park, a great place to go for the day. You can even camp at the park, which we hope to do in a couple of years. If you don't want to pay the fee to go into the park, you can park along the street on the way there & walk down the dunes to Lake MI. If you love the outdoors, Ludington is a great town to visit.
