About the property

Sweetwater Cottage is owned and operated by two area artists. The cottage has been completely renovated with both comfort and aesthetics in mind.

The cottage features all necessary amenities to make guests feel right at home and able to have a full vacation experience.

Boat rental and boat launch are just down the hill from the cottage which has views of both Hamlin Lake and the South Bayou.

The cottage can accomodate up to 7 guests. It has two bedrooms and one bath. The first bedroom has a queen and the second has a bunk bed (Twin over Full). There is also a brand new pull out sofa with inner spring mattress.

There is plenty of communal space both indoors and out. Feel free to gather at the farm table for a game of cards or around the fire pit outback. Or For a more quiet moment grab a book and sit on the covered deck or in front of the large picture window in the living room.

This is a family friendly cottage. As a young family themselves the owners see the value in travelling a little lighter. We have provided some toys, books and common necessities to make your stay a little easier. Including highchair and portable crib. Although we are family friendly we are not considered "child proof."

About Nathan Grubich

We have lived in Ludington for sixteen years. We moved here from out east and have absolutely fallen in love with the area. We enjoy all that the area has to offer and prefer our feet wet any chance we get. The luxury of having both Lake Michigan and Hamlin Lake at our finger tips allows us to do just that. Depending on the season and the conditions we are able to enjoy either lake with our family. We own a small business in downtown and are just so lucky to be a small part of the evolution of Ludington. The downtown has so much to offer both locals and visitors it makes time spent in Ludington truly one of a kind.

Nathan Grubich purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Nathan Grubich chose Ludington

We fell in love with our cottage because of the layout and family space. We love the large dining room for family meals or entertaining friends. The covered porch is the sweetest spot at the end of the day. Looking out at Hamlin Lake and watching boats and kayakers come and go through the south bayou is pretty sweet.

What makes this cottage unique

Hamlin Lake and the South Bayou area set you back in time a little. It's truly nestalgic yet close enough to downtown and all the amenities it has to offer. The drive to the State Park is beautiful and picturesque and not but 5 miles away. Whether you're playing in Hamlin or Lake Michigan it's all in the neighborhood. When you visit you'll see all there is to love. #PureLudington!

Sweetwater was very cute and relaxing. A perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We loved Sweetwater. It was so peaceful and a perfect location. We were able to rent a boat slip for the week to enjoy Hamlin Lake. The state park is very close as well. Nathan and Amanda were wonderful hosts. I just love their art work. Perfect place for a little family to enjoy. Hope to be back.

Nice kid-friendly cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this cottage with our children ages 3 and 1.5. Nice location close to Hamlin Lake and Ludington State Park, and a short drive to downtown Ludington. Cottage is nice with cozy gathering areas for the family, and nice to have the backyard grill and fire pit too. We would definitely stay again!

A beautiful and comfortable cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for a girls weekend. The cottage has ben beautifully updated and feels very fresh and inviting. We especially appreciated that towels and linens were included in the rental. The kitchen had everything we could want. The location is nestled perfectly between downtown Ludington and the Ludington Sate Park - something for everyone! I highly recommend this property!

Quaint and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect cottage on West Michigan close to lots of outdoor activities. The owners provided extra touches like fresh flowers, bath & beach towels, a perfect porch for morning coffee, a family style table, games/toys/books, and special artistic touches. We would highly recommend this property.
