Big Yellow House With Amazing Sunset ? Views of Lake Michigan. One of a Kind

Adults-only vacation home in Petoskey
This century old house just off Lake Michigan has an amazing history and location, on the edge of the beautiful rural town of Petoskey in Northern Michigan. Petoskey is the Michigan State Stone (Petoskey stone) and a place that was frequented by Earnest Hemingway during the summers. But when a physician bought this home, the historic property was muddled and neglected. As an entrepreneur and with a passion for architectural design, he sought to developed the property into a one-of-a-kind contemporary Spanish-European-Mediterranean style renovation.

The left portion of the house is up for rental and includes a living room, a kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, family room, and a balcony with an incredible view of the city and Lake Michigan. The Balcony is a perfect spot to watch the beautiful sunsets. This house is in a great location and is just a few blocks away from downtown historic Petoskey with shops, bars, and quaint coffee houses.
Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.

3/5 Okay

The really good, and the not so good
Really good: -very clean -responsive and helpful property manager -comfortable beds, nice linens -great location Not so good: -A/C in one bedroom didn’t work, and the other one wasn’t cooling the bedroom well. No screens in the windows to let the cool night air in on the upper floor. -one bedroom, the mattress is in the floor, rather than on a platform or bed frame. Looks like a college dorm room rather than an expensive vacation rental. -no closets or dressers to put clothing or other items in the bedrooms. -kitchen not well equipped for cooking. We had no cutting board, not kitchen towels, and one kitchen washcloth. The property manager did bring those items our second day. No counter space to prepare food, and no dish rack to dry dishes (as there is no dishwasher. -bathroom could use some towel hangers, especially the upstairs bathroom where the hand towel is laid across the sink. -no wine glasses… need I say more? -There isn’t a nice area to sit on the main floor -the upper deck could use an umbrella for shading as the evening sun is very hot up there. -definitely not worth the amount of money paid. Small improvements could make a huge difference.

5/5 Excellent

Great stay up north
Loved staying at this home as we explored Petoskey and Northern Michigan. It was clean and homey, and the housekeeper was very responsive to any questions/needs we had. I would definitely stay here again next time I’m up north.

5/5 Excellent

Northern Michigan independence at it's best
The owner and property manager were incredibly friendly and truthful in all aspects of the house and experience. I have spent a lot of time in Petoskey in the past so I knew this place would be perfect for my week. The house was very clean. Towels were hotel quality and the king size beds knocked me out as soon as I lay down. The lounge area upstairs connected to the balcony was the perfect little hang out spot for late nights and the AM. I met the owners and conversed quite a bit; some of their recommendations regarding the fireworks for the 3rd and 4th were spot on. I learned about the history of the building and was taken aback by the work put into the structure and property. If I come back to Petoskey with my family again 'The yellow house' will most certainly be a strong choice to stay if it is available.

4/5 Good
