Property description

This recently remodeled family home is just steps from downtown Marquette and Lake Superior. Walking distance to Northern Michigan University, the Superior Dome, the fit strip and farmers market. Marquette Mountain and Lake Superior can be seen from the living room.

Your Marquette vacation home has a full living room with couch and loveseat, comfy chair, HDTV with Chromecast and small dining area. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans, full sized refrigerator, Keurig machine and microwave. Kitchen exits to side yard so you can easily let pets out into the fenced area.

Located upstairs two of the bedrooms and the bathroom. Bathroom has double vanity, brand new big fluffy towels and bathtub/shower. The master bedroom upstairs is newly finished (8/2016) with laminate flooring and upgraded queen bed and two closets. The second upstairs bedroom is a full bed with a single large closet and has laminate flooring.

The closet at the top of the stairs has a high chair, pack n' play, and baby gate for blocking off the stairs from pets or kids. Stairs and trim throughout are brand new varnished pine - very warm feeling.

Downstairs you have the main entry way which is sandstone colored tile. Great area for cleaning up snowy/muddy/fun covered dogs and kids before letting them loose. Just across from the laundry room behind french doors is the last bedroom with bunk-beds and desk.

Full laundry with washer and dryer is downstairs. The family room table seats 8 and is bench style with two head chairs. The family room has access to the yard through brand new patio doors.

Siding and all exterior windows are brand new - house has stayed toasty warm in one of the coldest Marquette winters on record.

A few other things to note:
- 50meg cable internet w. wifi
- LED HDTV with Chromecast
- fresh linens on site, plus extra in storage
- respectful renters only please, this is a home for us half the year not a Motel 6
- current local events guide on the living room table
- growlers on top of the fridge for all the popular local microbreweries for discounts on local beers
- owners handle property management
- air mattress available

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Marquette, MI, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
