My husband and I stayed at the Ludington House recently, and had a not so positive experience. Somehow our reservations (made online) had the wrong date, so when we showed up to check in the owners were surprised, and let us know. However, because they had several rooms available, they were kind enough to change our reservations for the correct date. That's when the positive experience ended. We got to the room and were surprised to find a clawfoot tub in the bedroom, not a separate room. The toilet was in a closet so small that you were challenged to even stand up and turn around. The floors were creaky, and anytime anyone walked down the hallway you felt like they were coming in your room. Our room also faced the busy street, and we heard the traffic coming and going all night long, and it didn't quiet down during the night because many trucks came down the street. It was very hard to sleep.
Also when we came in the owner did a very quick tour, and also told us the former owners both died in the house. I have to tell you that gave me a creepy feeling for the rest of our stay. The other surprise was that they don't serve breakfast until 8:30am. They also close their door at 9:00pm and were not available at all the rest of our stay. I did knock on the door about 9pm when we realized we would be leaving before breakfast was served. We made the silly assumption that they could somehow provide us with something to eat (fruit, yogurt?) before we had to leave at 7:30. We also would have liked to have a to-go cup for coffee (that you make yourself with their Kuerig), but they only had small glass cups. They never came out that morning when we were getting our one cup of coffee to even offer anything to us.
I would not return to this establishment, the owners were not friendly to us as they were described by others, maybe because we had the wrong date? Not sure. It also made me decide not to book a bed and breakfast again.
