Welcome to the Stearns Hotel

The Stearns Hotel was built in 1903 by lumber baron Justus Stearns as Ludington’s first major hotel. While updated substantially since then, the Stearns retains many historic elements of its early twentieth-century heritage.

We’re the closest accommodation to shopping, dining, and the carferry. Parks, marinas, and beaches are nearby. There’s ample parking for boats and trailers, and we’re always open. Sorry, no pets allowed.
