About Richard Holmes
Grew up locally and went to school at NMU. I call Marquette and Chicago both home. I love Marquette for its memories and powerful outdoor connection. There's even a few old friends still around town.
Richard Holmes purchased this House in 2013
Why Richard Holmes chose Marquette Township
It's across the street from my Dad's house and allows me to visit and hang out pretty easily. Visiting with the dogs was always a pain to stay for more than a few days. This was a solution that was affordable without being extravagant, has room for a couple of friends to come too and you can walk to all the bars and restaurants without needing a DD. Big fenced back yard for the dogs. Problem solved.
What makes this House unique
Walking distance to everything downtown has (which is great, we're used to Chicago nightlife), is in town so it has really solid internet which means we can work remotely, close to the fit strip, lake, bike paths, grocery store.

Cozy house with nice fenced yard. Plenty of towels and sheets. Nice and clean.
Great place to stay in a great location.
The house is clean and very pet friendly. Had a great time coming back to my hometown for the week.
Amazing time, happy to be back again!
This was our third stay on Ridge street and I just loved it. Location is great and the house was super cozy, comfortable and clean. We look forward to visiting again this summer and enjoying more of Marquette.
Perfect spot for a UP visit.
We really enjoyed our stay. Having a dog, limits our travel options. The house is cute, very clean and in a great location. We were in walking distance from great restaurants, brewpubs, and shops. We would definitely stay here again. Having a dog, limited our lodging choices, so this was just what we needed.
Close to everything!
Our family of 4 (including twin boys) definitely made ourselves at home. The house was clean and tidy and we felt like we were at a friend's house. The house is close to everything and centrally located. Whether getting bagels in the morning to picking up growlers for the evening , everything was walkable and close. We are looking forward for our return visit!
Thank you! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in MQT at this house!
The rental was clean and orderly. It is exceptionally close to the downtown area of Marquette, McCarty's Cove and within biking distance to the Presquile Island.
The amenities met our needs for the most part. Anything that we ran out of, we simply picked up at the store (garbage bags, dish soap, paper towel, etc.). The kitchen had plenty of cooking utensils and cutlery for a rental property to make breakfast, lunch and dinner if you wanted. The kitchen could use a few more useful items like mixing bowls, a whisk, additional spatulas, serving spoons, etc. Otherwise, we had no issues.
The backyard is broken up into two sections which is nice if you have pets. My only suggestion would be for more seating out there if possible. Perhaps a little table so you could sit outside at sunset, etc. There was a charcoal grill to cook on as well which was nice to be able to BBQ.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying here on our next visit into town. Thanks Rick!
