Lakefront vacation home with kitchen and patio
Thanks for looking at our vacation cottage!

This is a four seasons home that is ready to keep you warm through a U.P. winter storm or welcome you in the summer to a cool lake breeze.

At 414 SF, this house is sized for a couple looking to escape to the U.P. We are pet friendly, so bring your dog!

The home is located in Marquette's historic East Side and is only a half block to the most popular beach in Marquette. From Spring through Fall, the rental includes two 3 speed cruiser bikes. With the bike path less than a 30 second pedal away, it's up to you to decide if you want to go to Presque Isle Park, the Third Street Village, the downtown restaurants or Farmer's Market, or maybe the brew pubs after a full day on the beach, mountain biking, or skiing.

The home has been decorated with a mix of whimsy and local history. It has a comfortable queen sized bed, air conditioner, new furnace, and washer and dryer. The home also includes WiFi and Netflix.

The patio doors in the living room open to a deck and a private backyard. The deck has a patio set and deck chairsl.

The private backyard is fenced in with convenient access from the patio doors. The home is pet-friendly and allows up to two dogs for an additional $75 per dog. (Because the VRBO billing system only accounts for one dog, please let us know if you will be bringing two dogs and we will add the additional charge to your reservation.) Pets are not allowed on the furniture and bed and we do ask that you clean up after your dog after he uses the yard with the disposable doggie bags that are provided in the shed.

This house is a carriage house, which means it shares the property with another house. The other house is occupied by quiet long-term renters. The driveway is shared with the long-term renters but your home has its own allotted parking space and has its own private fenced in backyard.

We are locals and live just a block away! We are happy to help you make the most of your stay. We don't think you'll find a better location in Marquette and look forward to hearing from you!

5/5 Excellent

Great location!
We loved our stay here! It was right by the water and the bikes were a fantastic touch! We could walk to food/coffee/etc. funny, I was discussing on the way up with my fiancé how I’ve never had an Vrbo to do something extra like a friend of mine had gotten on a vacation before and as we arrived there was a cute little basket of a few local things (which I thought we super awesome being a local business owner) On top of that they left you a binder with literally everything you could think of like food categorized for what you are feeling, things to do, beach access, and as far as if there’s a leak or something we’re to occur what route to take. (People like me appreciate those things without hotel service) This was exactly how these rentals should be ran and exceeded our expectations. It even allowed pets and there was not hair/pet smell at all either! Amazing and appreciate good people to have provided such a cute place for us to spend the holiday weekend. We already are talking to go back. The neighbor girl renting next door is in college and has friends over so if you are picky about these things Just be aware. We were there for 4th of July weekend so maybe she was just partying. She’s super nice though!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful Area/Clean Home
The home is always clean and well kept. The owners are always friendly and nice. The location of the home is within walking distance of Lake Superior and is also close to the downtown area restaurants and shops.

5/5 Excellent

great little house
the location is the best, close to the beach and the walkway. the house was just right for 2 and the the fenced back yard was perfect for the dog. The bed was very comfortable and the shower had plenty of hot water. We really enjoyed our visit to Marquette and can not think of anything to add that would have made it better

5/5 Excellent

The backyard was a godsend.
Super cute cottage, very small but not stuffy in any way. The backyard is absolutely beautiful and the fencing basically blocks out any neighborhood noise. Very serene and peaceful but also a great place for the dog. Walking distance to everything, and a few short steps to the water. Amazing location. Plus, Greg was so accommodating and just super nice. Next time we are in town, we are 100% staying there again.
