My boyfriend and I visited Ludington and the Cartier Mansion for the first time this weekend. It was amazing. We stayed in the King Suite, and we really didn't want to leave. The room had a large bathroom, sitting room, and private balcony. The bed was extremely comfortable. Andrew, the owners' son, was a wonderful, gracious host. He was the...

My sister and brother in law got my wife and I a two night stay in the king suite for a wedding gift last year. We decided to use it on our one year anniversary trip this year. The house is very nice and our room (the King Suite) was excellent. The needle shower is something to be experienced first...

If you love old creaky historic houses with a great history this is the one. We stayed in the Blue Silk Room and it was great but when we come back I think we stay in king suite, the shower is incredible. The food was awesome!

My wife had always commented that she'd love to stay in the Cartier Mansion anytime we went to Ludington. I surprised her with a visit and stayed in the King's Room which is where Mr. Cartier slept. The staff was very friendly and loved the beautiful woodwork thru out the mansion. We road the bikes all thru Ludington as it...

My husband and I are not typically B&B people... introverts that we are, all the mingling can be a little unnerving for us. We booked this inn a) because the reviews were excellent but mainly because b) it was an available and reasonably priced option for an overnight stop on the way to Traverse City. However, we were very pleasantly...
