Spacious and clean, five bedroom house right on 5000-acre Hamlin Lake. Swim, fish, or dock your boat in your own front yard; Launch your small craft right next door; Watch the sunset over the dunes from your living room. Rent our deck boat or a jet-ski just down the road. Or drive five miles into downtown Ludington where you will find golf, movie theatres, bowling, go-carts, putt-putt golf, Lake Michigan fishing, a wonderful sandy beach, and numerous restaurants, ice-cream parlors, and shopping.

Nearby is Ludington State Park, the most popular park in Michigan, with a sandy beach, concession stand, picnic sites, and miles of shaded bike trails. In winter, just walk out your door for snowmobiling, ice-fishing, or cross-country skiing.

7 adults and 4 children, and plenty of room.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay here and have to say we were thoroughly impressed. From the more than ample parking for 4 families to the spacious house where there was never a crowding problem. The privacy is phenomenal. We ate most of out meals outside and were never bothered by anyone. We also rented the deck boat and had complete access to the parks and lake. Great fishing from the boat and shore. It's been mentioned in other reviews but the sunsets were gorgeous. We would go out every night and watch them, best show in town. We've recommended to several friends already.

10 adults and a great grandchild

It is rare when your expectations are met. It is even more rare when they are exceeded. Our expectations when fair exceeded. Everything we needed was provided from lawn chairs to WiFi to LP gas for the Weber grill to firewood! Amazing views with beautiful sunsets. Our biggest problem was having to leave. We not only highly recommend Dunview but expect to continue to visit annually.

Great place to stay....will use again

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with my family (total of 10 adults) and I have to say it was a beautiful place to relax andtour the area. We couldn't have asked for a nicer home that though there were ten of us we didn't bump into each other---plenty of space. My kids loved the volleyball court, I loved the kitchen with every container I needed to cook a large family dinner. If I had a question beforehand the owners got back to me very promptly. The one thing I want to say is OMG, THE SUNSETS---the water is right there in your front yard and the beautiful beautiful breathtaking sunsets was worth the trip. THANK YOU!!

Best Value on Lake Hamlin

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this beautiful cottage several times and each time it has been with additional families. As other reviewers have mentioned this cottage is very well-equipped, clean and has a BEAUTIFUL private location on the lake. When you get a cottage that is 2500 sq. ft. with 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, laundry room, sitting room w/piano, all towels, & sheets, huge kitchen that is well-stocked, kayaks and paddleboat, picnic tables, fire pit, volleyball court, wireless, cable, etc... and then divide the cost with a couple of families I GUARANTEE you will not find a better cottage anywhere at this price! Thank you Jim and Carole for all the thought you put in supplying and especially sharing this hidden treasure.

Guys week out

  • 5 of 5

First I would like to THANK the Maddox family for allowing us to share the enjoyment of thier beautiful home. We have rented the Duneview house now for about 5 yrs. and have always found whatever we need available at the house. They do an excellant job with the bullitin board(current and local events) so you have all the info you need to make your stay pleasant, funfilled and comfortable.We go in late May for the fishing, it is always GREAT, and we especialy like the protection that the front yard slips and cover provide our boats. Our pack list gets smaller each year, because of the provitions provided at the cottage-LOVE having the firewood. The sunsets are unbelievable and you want it to storm 1 night just so you can experience the system crossing the lake and dunes. We will continue to use our week as long as you continue to share.

From the Owner

We purchased our house as our retirement home, but we are still some years away from retiring. So we thought we share our home with guests until those retirement years roll around. It's a peaceful and scenic setting and the water can be viewed from most rooms in the house.
