Petoskey ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT IN JUNE! "Endless Sunsets on the Bay"

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 6 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleep 8

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" TV with surround sound, a huge sectional sofa (double sleeper), a twin sleeper Loveseat and the wall of windows that overlook Little Traverse Bay.

Check in please no sooner than 4 PM. Check out please by 10 AM. This allows us enough time to prepare it for the next same-day guest with the cleanliness that you would expect.

A Petoskey Treasure

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay right on the bay! This home is immaculate, comfortable and cozy. This home has all of the amenities you can ask for. It's close to downtown Petoskey. We and our four legged fur babies enjoyed our stay. We liked our walk along bay. We would definitely recommend this home to friends. We are looking forward to coming back. Connie is a friendly and gracious host.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Connie's place is great! Right next to a waterfront park. The unit is laid out perfectly for socializing. Very easy walk to downtown. Can't beat the location. Will stay again.

Really clean, hated the bed

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a ski trip for a couple nights, and It was a great place to stay, but there was a few things missing/off. The bed in the back room I literally referred to as a "rack" because of how uncomfortable it was. We also had to use a screw driver as a can opener, since there was no can opener. Also, all of the hand soap in the house was so diluted it literally looked like water. We also couldn't get the TV to work even with the detailed instructions on operation...maybe it was the whiskey or my lack of intelligence, but that is something we will never know.. The coffee pot was also probably the slowest ever to exist. I could have made French press coffee faster.

Despite all of these minor things, It was a very nice rental. It was nice to wake up and see the Bay out the front window. This would be a fantastic location in the summer, since it would be walking distance to bars/downtown.

All in all, it was worth the money. I just think a new mattress could be warranted.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed here over MLK weekend. It was clean, comfortable and accommodated our family very well. The owner checked in with us over the weekend to ensure that all was well. We also loved that it is located close to the downtown Petoskey area and the view of the bay was nice as well. We highly recommend this unit.
