Car: Not Necessary

Our house is in the heart of Petoskey, walking distance from both the Little Traverse Bay and about 150 yards from the Bear River. You can also walk to the downtown area for all shops and restaurants. The biking and walking trails are moments away as well. Ski slopes are 10-15 minutes away in either direction.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We purchased this beautifully updated home last year because we want to spend as much time in northern Michigan as possible, with our kids, to ski, sail, bike and hike.

Why the Owner Chose Petoskey, MI, USA:
We had been spending vacation time all over northern Michigan, and Petoskey felt just right! The size and function of the house was perfect for us. We can come up as a family, and have another family or friends visit while we are there.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Not many homes built in 1900 have all the following items that are less than a year old: all new appliances, baths, floors, windows, and carpet, with the kitchen and all exterior and interior walls freshly painted. This home has the added benefit of being walking distance from everything we wanted, with the Bear River and it's brand new walking and bike trails steps away.
