The History of Hobby Crest

Hobby Crest Resort is owned and operated by Randy and Christy Malliett, as of November 2017. Both Randy and Christy were born and raised in Ludington and are proud to call this area home. As custom home builders and owners of Malliett Construction Inc., they have been committed to quality construction, creative design and customer satisfaction for over 30 years. Their dream is to incorporate their standards into the resort while preserving the rich history of the area.

Randy and Christy are renovating and restoring Hobby Crest so their guests can experience and explore the beauty, serenity and charm of Hamlin Lake and the surrounding areas. Originally named in 1938, Hobby Crest Resort was a beautiful and serene destination for tourists and locals alike. Randy and Christy are in the process of reestablishing the resort in the hopes that families can come here to spend time together and make lasting memories. Whether it’s your first visit, or you’re coming to relive a little bit of the past, Hobby Crest Resort is a destination where all generations can experience nature and the great outdoors, while still maintaining the comforts and conveniences of home
