Car: Recommended

Good dogs are welcome smoking is not. People appreciate the convenience of being in town and having an out of town atmosphere. Lots of room makes it possible to have two gardens- including a Monarch butterfly garden, and fruit trees. There is plenty of room for boat trailer off street parking. Walk or bike the Bear River Path to downtown Petoskey where one will find wonderful restaurants and shopping. Its entrance is at the end of the block. This location not only provides easy access to; historic Petoskey's restaurants, parks, shops, near by casino, art galleries, concerts, and all the outdoor activities listed above, but a short trip (1/2 hour to an hour to historic Fort Michilimac in Mackinaw City, and Fort Mackinac on beautiful Mackinac Island. The drive across the Mackinac Bridge offers spectacular views of; The Straits of Mackinac, the Les Cheneaux Islands, Drummond Island, Bois Blanc Island and Mackinac Island all accessible by boat or ferry. If you like lighthouses, there are 21 of them within a 50 mile radius of Petoskey.

Traverse City is an hour and a half to the South.

Sleeping Bear National Lake shore sand dunes is two hours Mackinaw city and island ferry one hour distant. V.R.B.O. # 373074

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

Why the Owner Chose Petoskey:
The location of the multible city lots enable one to enjoy both living in Petoskey and have the solitude of the country. It is a little hard to find. I provide additional directions besides the street address.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cottage sits on multiple lots, secluded in the middle of town. Look at the Petoskey map to see this in town hideaway. Because of the proximity to the Bear River, there is an abundance of wildlife year round. Large pine trees and other mature shade trees along with flower gardens create a park like setting.
