Become a part of this Mansion's memoir.
Standing grand since 1905, the Cartier Mansion is a neoclassical marvel designed by the Cartier family. Every corner reflects their impeccable taste, from the exquisitely detailed woodwork to the perfectly preserved period antiques. The Mansion's proud stature in Ludington tells tales of when it was once considered the town's finest residence, a testament to Warren and Kate Cartier's vision. The beautifully renovated Carriage House stands adjacent to the Mansion and boasts guest suites in spaces that stables and haylofts once occupied.
Stay with purpose and make historical marks.
Each room at the Cartier Mansion paints its own unique picture. Whether you're staying in Warren Cartier's luxurious King Suite, with access to a private grand balcony and a vintage rib cage shower, or in the Cottage Room adorned with Cartier family vacation photos, you're guaranteed an exclusive experience. Among the modern conveniences are high-speed WiFi, smart TVs, and luxurious bedding to ensure your comfort. Keyless entries add a layer of safety, while the Mansion's common areas, like the conservatory and library, beckon guests to unwind against a historic backdrop.
Dining at Cartier Mansion is an artful experience. As a guest, you'll start your day with an exceptional multi-course breakfast. Weekends become even more indulgent with "Beverage and Bite" welcome receptions, celebrating local ingredients and tantalizing palates. The culinary philosophy leans towards health and sustainability, often incorporating plant-based options, ensuring every bite contributes to the well-being of guests and the global community.
Cartier Mansion is dedicated to giving back to the community of Ludington, and guests of the Mansion play an integral part in that mission! A portion of the proceeds from each reservation is donated to local charities. And for guests who want to do more during their stay, the Mansion offers what they refer to as "Planned Experiences"—opportunities to volunteer directly with local nonprofits.
