We had so much fun over this week of the fourth of July. The resort had a fishing rodeo on the morning of the fourth for all the kids. They had prizes for everyone and they had pancakes, donuts and coffee. It was great fun. The cottage was perfect for us and clean. Thank you for a great time. We have already booked for next summer.

We love Ludington and we love this place!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had never been to Ludington until last summer. We had heard from our others that we needed to find a place on Hamlin Lake, preferably with beach access which might be difficult to find. We’re thrilled that we found American Dream. Though it’s not right on the lake it’s about 150 yards from a beautiful private beach. The cottage also came with a slip with a covered canopy which was perfect for our fishing boat.

The cottage was a perfect size for me, my husband, and teenage son and daughter—not huge, but in a place like Ludington you want to spend all of your time outside anyway. We spent a few of our evenings around the fire pit right outside the cottage which was great. The inside of the cottage is quite cute and fresh. The bathroom was real clean and smelled brand new. All of the appliances seemed brand new and worked without a hitch.

We would absolutely recommend this cottage to others.

Darling, well-decorated cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5
This is a darling, comfortable cottage steps away from Hamlin Lake with boating, swimming, and a playground on the beach. My family had a fabulous time. The cottage is homey and extremely neat. The property is well-maintained and obviously professionally cleaned. I highly recommend this property!

Best for two guys on a fishing trip

  • 2 of 5
Let me say first of all that the owner was very kind & helpful the day we arrived & expressed our issues with the cottage. She did her best to fix the problems from a distance. The cottage however was just not up to par. It had not been properly cleaned prior to our arrival. In fact, after speaking with the owner we decided we were going to stay & make the best of it so I swept the floors, shook out rugs & attempted to clean up the best I could. There were lots of small black dog hairs in the dust pan. Despite my effort, my 8 month old son who is crawling still had dirty little knees and all of our socks were dingy and dirty from the unmopped floor. Blankets on the bed were stained, old and dingy. The bathroom curtain was not hung and sitting in a box on the kitchen table. We hung it. There were lots of cobwebs everywhere and even more spiders (all part of staying in a cottage in a wood I suppose) but still seemed like they hadn't been cleaned up in a long while. There were about 3 bathtowels, 2 washcloths, and no handtowels. The towels that were provided to us later by request were paint-stained and just dirty looking and stained. They honestly look like the kind of towels I would use as rags in my home. Possibly worst of all we couldn't drink the water in the cottage. It was brown and staining the sinks. Unfortunately, we were forced to shower and bath our kids in it & no kidding, by the end of the week our fingernails had a slight orange stain around the cuticles!

I think this cottage is better suited for a couple of guys on a fishing trip or someone who wouldn't be bothered by these things. They would also have plenty of space to park a boat trailer. But for us with two small kids it felt kind of like we were "roughing it" for a week. We had the cottage until Saturday but left Friday. I just couldn't take another night on the futon.

I only hope this review will help the owner in getting possibly better housekeeping and updates to her linens/towels that will make future guests more comfortable. And also that she will have maintenance done on whatever is causing the brown water.

Another positive note, we do really like Ludington. Great beaches, beautiful scenery and little town. Would highly recommend just do your research about where you plan to stay. Oh and one more thing, the cottage is not right on the lake. Just a short walk to the lake but still from the photos I was under the impression we were on the water.

Owner's Response: This week was the first week of our summer rentals and the person who cleaned the cottage was not our regular cleaner. We refunded 50% of their payment due to the condition. We have a professional cleaner come in and clean the cottage and bring new fresh towels and linens.
