The Perfect Getaway

Welcome to Always Michigan Cottage, nestled on 70 feet of prime lakefront property on Upper Hamlin Lake in Ludington, Michigan.  This comfortable duplex features a pier with 4 boat slips, and is located on one of Michigan's most spectacular lakes.

Hamlin Lake is a 5,000 acre, all-sports lake that offers excellent fishing, boating, and water sports.

A short boat ride across the lake will take you to a pristine sandy beach with miles of sand dunes to enjoy.  A bit further can take you to the Ludington State Park, where nature trails await.  The Sable River is also found there leading from the dam to Lake Michigan.  The salmon fishery at Lake Michigan is also fantastic, year round.

Always Michigan Cottage is situated next to Barnhart's Resort and Marina, which offers a full restaurant, boat rentals, gas, and occasionally, live music entertainment.
Leave your stress behind and immerse yourself in unparalleled relaxation at Always Michigan. 

Always Michigan
The beautiful and quaint City of Ludington can be explored during your stay.  There are many fun and exciting activities such as eating ice cream at the House of Flavors, visiting the micro-brewery in town, eating at one of the many restaurants, or just doing some shopping.  You can also watch the sun set on Lake Michigan or take a walk to the Lighthouse.  There are many miles of sandy lakefront along the Lake Michigan shoreline, all for your enjoyment.
