Cartier Mansion Bed and Breakfast

Stay On Purpose, Make Your Mark

Cartier Mansion Bed and Breakfast

Stay On Purpose, Make Your Mark

At the turn of the 20th Century, the visionary couple Warren and Kate Cartier built their home of the future where they raised their three sons. In 1950, local business owners Abby and Genevieve Schoenberger purchased the property for their family, living here for over 50 years. Gary and Sue Ann Schnitker brought the grandeur and rich history of this magnificent space to the public, opening as Cartier Mansion Bed and Breakfast in 2005. Building on their success, new owners Chris and Jenna Simpler are adding rooms and making additional improvements to provide a world-class guest experience.

Cartier Mansion is an historic mansion with one-of-a-kind architecture and design. Each room is endowed with custom woodwork and fixtures carefully preserved from the initial construction in 1905. The exquisite detail and craftsmanship is truly unique and timeless and our home features many antiques, including select belongings from the Cartier family.

With 6 rooms in the Mansion currently open, the adjacent Carriage House will soon feature 4 suites capturing the history of this unique space. The Carriage House will be completed by Summer 2021.

Located steps from downtown Ludington, Cartier Mansion is only minutes away from the picturesque Lake Michigan shoreline, beaches, and some of Michigan's most beautiful parks.

Please follow us on our journey as we continue to care for Cartier Mansion, The Carriage House, and how we and our guests will Make Our Mark on the local community.
