Overview

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!

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!

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!

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.

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Sweetwater Cottage so much. We are already considering returning next summer. Sweetwater is close to everything: local beaches, Ludington State Park, South Bayou Park/boat launch, and only a few miles from downtown Ludington. We appreciated the quiet, private setting of the cottage away from downtown for our family and dog. We enjoyed riding bikes, fishing of the dock at South Bayou Park (which you can easily walk to), playing in the waves of Lake Michigan along M116, kayaking around Hamlin Lake and exploring Ludington State Park. We were so happy to have a clean rental to call "home" for the week. Our dog did great here as he is old and there are no stairs at Sweetwater (except to get to the basement). The kids thought the bunk beds were the coolest thing in the world. We used the fire pit for cooking hot dogs and s'mores and enjoyed eating outside almost every night when we weren't exploring food options in Ludington.

The cottage is tastefully decorated with art from the Red Door Gallery and unique pottery pieces. Visit the gallery if you get a chance on James St.!

We did notice there were no alarm clocks in the bedrooms and no clocks in the house. Since most people have smartphones this isn't a huge deal for us adults but our kids were up pretty early most mornings because they had no sense of time in their bedroom. Also, bring nightlights if you use them. We bring ours everywhere when we travel for the kids but something to consider.

Thank you Nathan and Amanda for providing such a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Sarah thank you for your kind words. So glad you enjoyed the cottage during your family vacation. I also appreciate your suggestions for alarm clocks. You are correct we have become so accustom to our smart phones but not everyone may have one or have one near. I will be getting some ASAP. Again thank you for choosing Sweetwater Cottage.
