Petoskey "Endless Sunsets on the Bay" SUMMER AVAILABILITY!!!

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.

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.

Cozy with Modern Comfort

  • 5 of 5

This place exceeded our expectations! It was a cozy cottage, but with a large kitchen / dining area, as wells a big living/ family room area. Every modern convenience was available - huge TV, Comfy sofas .The setting next to the harbor, park and walking trail made it extra extra special! A real winner and we wouldn't hesitate recommending it and returning ourselves.

Above and beyond our expectations! Hidden gem! All the comforts of home plus more!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came up for a weekend get away and stumbled upon this beauty of a home. Location was perfect- walking distance to downtown Petoskey, steps away from the bike trail, a stones throw away from Lake Michigan! The owner was so friendly and over accommodating....we felt right at home the moment we stepped out of the car. Super clean, comfy bed, full kitchen, big bathroom, storage shed for our bikes, fireplace, BBQ grill, deck, we used it all!!! We highly recommend this place and anxiously await our return as well. The only thing missing was a fire pit outside, but we were still able to locate one at the Burnt Marshmallow Brewery on Saturday afternoon. Highly recommend it if you like good beer- little expensive but the atmosphere makes up for the cost!!! Five+ STARS for us- way to go Connie!! Thank you for allowing us to reguvenate in your little piece of paradise!
