This is the most unique property in the area. Not only is it on Lake Michigan—you can walk 170’ to the water’s edge without crossing a single street—it is also in Petoskey, just three blocks from the famous Gaslight shopping district of Petoskey where one can go to concerts, live theater and casual to fine dining. Only 50' or so from the front door is the Little Traverse Wheelway bicycle path that goes 26.7 miles from Charlevoix north to Harbor Springs with a 32 mile spur called the North Western State Trail that takes you to Mackinaw City. Also within three blocks are the local hospital, the marina, a small sandy beach, the lighthouse pier, the softball fields, the Historical Museum and the Bear River for Salmon fishing.
Views of magnificent Michigan sunsets blend from the sky into the water at the horizon, unobstructed by trees typical of views across inland lakes.
The house itself has a personality unobtainable from typical hotel accommodations with its Victorian cottage style bedroom (Queen bed), Knotty Pine bedroom (bunk beds-full on bottom, twin on top), unique ceiling fans(remote-controlled), a pass-through window between the kitchen and living room, track and mood lighting, bookshelves flanking the gas fireplace, a mini-bar, a 42" smart TV with surround sound, a huge sectional sofa (double sleeper), a twin sleeper Loveseat and the wall of windows that overlook Little Traverse Bay.
