Guest Reviews of happy day on hamlin

4.6 out of 5 stars based on 5 user reviews.

Great time!

Review by mark s.
My adult children, grandson and I spent 5 days here. The house was spacious which allowed a quiet zone for my grandson to nap and sleep. A row boat and kayak were provided which we had lots of fun with. We spent evenings around the firepit next to the water, watching the beautiful sunsets. If I have one critque, its that the lower walk out/bathroom and laundry,hangout w/bed area smelled musty. We didnt need the area to hang out, so it wasnt an issue with us. I feel its a great value for everything you get. Its a very quiet area and there is a restaurant with in walking distance of the home. They rent pontoons there which can add to the experience on Hamlin Lake(great fishing). I would recommend this home based on size,value and location!

*Update as of Spring 2019 - The owners of the property had a professionally installed dehumidifier system installed and it has helped with the dampness and the musty smell immensely. Thank you again for your constructive feedback, it truly is helpful as we set our sights on every renter having a great experience*

Perfect place for family getaway!

All of my siblings and their families got together to celebrate our parent’s 50th Anniversary. There was plenty of space to spread out. We really enjoyed using the lake, grill, and the fire pit. Plus, there are many things to do in the Ludington Area no matter what your taste is!

Hi Connie - so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Happy Day on Hamlin! It's a very special place, lots of great memories are made there and we are so glad to hear your family enjoyed it as well. Thank you for choosing Unsalted Vacations, come see us again!

Amazing Location But House Needs A Ton of Work

Wonderful location! Hamlin Lake is beautiful and just 15 minutes away from Lake MI and a pristine sandy beach (Stearns Beach). Unfortunately, the house needs a lot of updating that made it hard to justify the steep nightly rate. The showers in the basement had exposed insulation, and a huge ball of hair on the ground, so needless to say we did not use them. The upstairs sink in the master bath only had scalding hot water, so we didn’t use it. The microwave wasn’t working, and the dishwasher was full of dishes (which we had to rewash and put away) upon our arrival. The living room on the next floor down had such a strong musty odor that we couldn’t stand to be in the room. With carpented flooring and fabric furniture in the room, they were wet upon arrival and no one wanted to sit down. A dehumidifier and tile flooring are very much needed. The boat and kayak were nice to have for the kids, and the fire pit was very nice. The sunsets were amazing, and the lake was very quiet. I think with a lot of TLC, this place might make a decent rental house. Nevertheless, it didn’t stop us from enjoying ourselves and falling in love with Hamlin Lake and downtown Ludington.

Great Up North Vacation Destination

Review by Ruth N.
We rented this home for the week of July 4th week. Three adults and 4 kids had more space then needed. The hose is well laid out for everyone to have their space. The location and property allowed for the at home feeling. We brought our boat with us and the dock and location was perfect! I would highly recommend this spot for your next vacation. We will be back for sure.

Nice stay

Review by Paul K.
Happy Day on Hamlin is a nice place to stay with plenty of room. The only negative is the lack of parking space for a big group. There is room for three vehicles and that is tight.
