Beautiful Home Near Marquette Mountain and Minutes From Everything. Est. 2008

Historic vacation home in Marquette
Beautiful 4-bedroom, 2.5-bath home near the ski hill and minutes from everything in Marquette.Cliffs Ridge is a comfortable, spacious home with four separate bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 2 futons and a reclining full-size sofa and chair. It has cathedral ceilings and a corner wood-burning fireplace for family togetherness and privacy all wrapped in one. The home is located less than one mile south of Marquette Mountain Ski Area on M-553 (the closest house to the hill), minutes from downtown Marquette and magnificent Lake Superior, and ten minutes to KI Sawyer International Airport. Cliffs Ridge is so-named because you can see its rooftop from Cliffs Ridge Run at the top of Chair #1 at Marquette Mountain, formerly Cliffs Ridge Ski Area. There is no apostrophe in 'Cliffs' because it was originally named after the Cliffs Dow Company. The exposed beams in the roof and Great Room are actually recycled from the old Tracy Mine in Ishpeming.Part of the beauty of renting Cliffs Ridge is its personality and warmth—you can enjoy family and friends without the commercial feeling of a hotel, and with the great kitchen space you can enjoy excellent family dining without the expense of going out to eat for every meal.Fully furnished, it is a wonderful place to rejuvenate and spend time with the ones you love. Relax in front of the fireplace after a great day of skiing, curl up and watch a movie in the comfortable seating in the living room, enjoy drinks on the 2nd-story deck after a day at the beach, or read a book in one of the private bedrooms.Cliffs Ridge has four separate bedrooms. "Superior": King-size bed, master bath, sitting area, access to private back deck, futon, 32" flat screen TV and Charter cable; "Big Bay": bunk-bed room with two singles; "Northwoods" Queen bed with 32" flat screen TV and DVD player; and "Chalet": Queen bed with another full bath and door to outside. "Northwoods" and "Chalet" have French doors with blinds and curtains separating them; these can be opened or closed depending on your preference.It also has two futons suitable for kids (one in master and one in living room) and reclining sofa and chair in the living room. There is an additional bathroom on the floor with the living room, dining and kitchen area.The kitchen is fully stocked with everything necessary to feed a crowd including two crock pots, turkey roaster and many nice pots and pans. There is a Weber stainless steel propane grill on the upper deck year-around.This year-around vacation home is the perfect spot for family reunions, ski vacations, NMU parent activity weekends, wedding parties, hiking weekends, Brewfest, Pictured Rocks touring, golf vacations and more. Our hope is that your family can enjoy it the way we have for 28 years — and that it can become your Marquette home-away-from-home as well!The Marquette area has 35 miles of interconnected paved bike trails and miles of mountain biking trails as well—accessible directly from the house. Snowmobile parking is available at Marquette Mountain with access to the trails. Cliffs Ridge is also two miles from Blueberry Ridge Cross-Country Ski Trails.Keywords: House, Ski Hill, Lake Superior, Northern Michigan University, Weddings, Skiing, Snowmobiling, XC Skiing, Hiking, Biking, Fat-Tire Biking, Fishing, Beaches, Community Events, UP 200, Midnight Run, Coast Guard Station, Little Presque Isle, Presque Isle, breakwalls, Brewfest, Foodfest, Seafood Fest, Northern Michigan University Football and Hockey, Marquette, Big Bay, Pictured Rocks, Golfing, Anatomy of a Murder, Thunder Bay Inn and all area sporting events.

5/5 Excellent

Great location, nice place
Lovely home conveniently located near Marquette Mountain. We were mainly there for hiking and enjoying the downtown area. An entire trail network is located within a mile of the house. Downtown Marquette is less than 10 minutes away. Everything we wanted to do was within 20 minutes. The house was clean and spacious. The cost is very reasonable. Two of the bedrooms have a window facing the highway, so keep that in mind if you're a light sleeper. We had a sound machine and earplugs so we adjusted to this quickly. We had an amazing time, thank you!

5/5 Excellent

Excellent family vacation in Marquette
Cliffs Ridge was superbly located for sight seeing in the Marquette region of the U.P. and it was spacious and convenient for winding down in the evenings. We would definitely stay here again.

5/5 Excellent

Mountain Biking Mecca
We came in to town for the Ore to the Shore race and found this wonderful piece of property. It was located near one of the trailheads for mountain biking, it was 8 miles from town. The accommodations were just as described. We enjoyed drinks by the fire in the evening and spent time on both the upper and lower decks. Both decks have BBQ's on the which make it easy for a large group or if you are hanging out in the backyard or staying indoors and using the upper deck.
