Built in the late 1800's and refitted to accommodate a bed and breakfast. A winding staircase, original wood floors, and beautiful throughout the house. Bed needed to be upgraded but was comfortable enough. Rattling window was a little annoying on a windy night, Since we were scheduled out early to catch the ferry, we did not do the full breakfast...

The Inn is clean and very interesting. There a few signs of age and need for a bit of TLC, but overall, the inn is very nice. (We had three rooms and two had bath arrangements that were not real good and one room was too cold the first night - fixed with no further problems). Host, Ola, could not...

Wow! Did we ever stumble upon a gem when making a last minute reservation at The Inn. My daughter and I were seeking a 1-night stay in the quaint little ferry town of Ludington before heading down to Holland for the Tulip Festival. Based on TripAdvisor reviews, we decided to book a double queen room here. What a find! Ellie,...

This delightful old house right on the main street [Ludington Ave] is made all the more perfect a destination by the great host, Ola, and his amazing breakfasts offerings. The history and antiques make the house museum-like, but the warmth of the host and fireplace make it seem like home...in another era. The variety of room offerings will make return...

We made last minute reservation and was delighted with the find. The innkeeper was a great host. Recommendations for dinner and a place to walk our pup. Breakfast was wonderful. Definitely stay again when we have an opportunity to pass through Ludington.

We stayed in the room at the front of the house with a king size very comfortable bed, fire place, whirlpool tub and a windowed sitting alcove. The location is convenient just a few blocks from downtown. Loved the gourmet breakfast of coffee, juice, fruit, oatmeal, quiche, egg bake and sweet rolls. Didn't hear the ghost this visit.

The house is beautiful and charming, clean rooms. This was a frigid day, and the room was a little chilly. That is my only complaint. The breakfast buffet included so many things and each thing we had was delicious. Egg broccoli quiche, egg hash brown bake, lemon pastry roll with custard, fruit, fresh baked bread. And more. We are not...

Thank you so much for taking the time to writing a review and thank you for the kind words! We noted your concern about the room being too cool and have addressed that already, the mini-split heat pump unit did require a minor service - filter cleaning - and is now blowing adequate warm air. Sorry about that! Hope you...

Loved this beautiful Victorian, taste of Europe, B and B. Spotlessly clean, very reasonably priced, delightful common rooms (dining and sitting especially), my only wish was that The Inn was closer to the lake and lighthouse. It is easy to get to (U.S. 10 is Ludington Ave) and there is off street parking. We were in spacious room 6 which...
