Great location

  • 4 of 5

This property is very conveniently located. It was an easy to walk to downtown for shopping, restaurants and access to walking and bike trails. The house was very clean and comfortable for our short stay. The heating was very efficient and kept it warm and cozy!

Communication with the owner was quick and easy. We would recommend this property for anyone looking for a place to stay close to downtown Petoskey.

Loved the location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this remodeled older home, up on the hill in a quiet residential area of Petoskey. Our favorite thing was the location, a few blocks walk to downtown, with easy access to bike trails. The house has lots of room and is very clean and uncluttered. I do suffer from allergies though, and something here got mine going, possibly the older damp foundation (there had been some days of rain) or the air freshener plug-ins. The bathrooms and shower were great, the beds were comfortable. The only seating in the living room is a large sectional couch and it's quite uncomfortable. Internet worked fine. All in all, a good house in a wonderful location.

Location is fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this property as it was so convenient and easy to get to things like restaurants, parks, and the activities we like to do. We went to three different areas of Michigan and this was our favorite. The beds were comfy. The owners were great with communication. As another review stated kitchen adequate for smaller easy meal prepping but not for anything really involved. We utilized the grill which was nice and did help. Would definitely stay again if we were to return to the area. The owners also provided good restaurant suggestions and things that were close by which is very helpful when traveling with a limited number of days.

Unbeatable location for Petoskey

  • 4 of 5

This little house gave me everything I needed for a four-day stay at the end of the summer. It's on a quiet residential street just three blocks south of Mitchell Street (Petoskey's main street). Good restaurants are within a half-mile walk. The house is clean, quiet and well-appointed. Heat and air conditioning systems work very well - and quietly. The washer and dryer are good-quality GE units. The kitchen is equipped well enough to cook most simple meals - which is what you want on vacation.

Being able to work while "on vacation" is important to me. As I'm writing this, I measured internet connection speeds of 65/5.75 Mbps, which is fast enough to conduct most business. I had an issue with wi-fi in the house and the owners were very responsive to my request for help.

The house is old enough to be "quirky." One quirk is that the two bedrooms are on the upper floor, while the full bath is on the ground floor. Upstairs, there's just a powder room. Tall folks will need to take care going down the staircase. I'm just 5'-9" and I bumped my head on part of the structure.

Exceptionally clean, warm and inviting decor, great location

  • 5 of 5

Owners very prompt in responding to inquiries. Lovely, well maintained property, with great location in Petoskey-quiet neighborhood within short walking distance to gaslight district and the waterfront. Comfortable beds and lovely decor. Description of rental amenities accurate. Beach accessories and bikes were an added bonus. This was the nicest pet friendly home that we've rented from the Home Away/VRBO site. Would definitely rent again.

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Petoskey. This house was accommodating to our needs, just wish we had it the full week! We really LOVED the downstairs Master Bathroom. It would have been nice to have an extra chair or love seat in the living room. It was Pet friendly and the neighborhood was nice. Loved the extra touch of leaving us a bottle of wine! Thank you :)

About The Owner

We currently live in Louisville, Kentucky and are both graduates of the University of Kentucky. Married for six years with one very special Chesapeake Retriever, Henry. Our beloved Belle was with us for 13 wonderful years - she loved Petoskey!

The Owner purchased this house in 2013

Why The Owner chose Petoskey

We discovered the Petoskey area a few summers ago and found such great relief in the cooler weather, breathtaking sunsets, quaint restaurants, great beaches and wonderful amenities in this area of Michigan!

What makes this house unique

We love our 'Belle's on Grove' because it is such a quick walk to everything we would need! The beautiful waterfront, marina and bike trail are minutes away! Great restaurants and shopping are simply a 7 minute walk down the hill - location, location, location!
