About Barb O'Neill

We are Marquette natives we lived away while my husband was in the US Navy during the Vietnam Era, stationed on the USS Kitty Hawk. My husband is a retired carpenter and I retired from the City of Marquette along with owning my own business, Embroidery Wearhouse. We are the proud parents of three daughters and two granddaughters. Our plan is to travel to Europe and here in the US.

Barb O'Neill purchased this house in 1989

Why Barb O'Neill chose Marquette

This home previously belonged to our grandparents. The home has been in the family since 1923, we wish to continue the family legacy. We purchased it in 1989 and lived in it while we built our house. Central location is convenient yet offers privacy within the City of Marquette. We generally walk to restaurants, bars, the Food Co-op, Lake Superior and Mattson Park. Mattson Park is where most of the festivals are held, it's easier to walk from the house then try to find a parking spot. Park Cemetery is located just to the north of the home, access is available straight up the hill, past the American Legion. This is a cemetery but it's also a park. Beautiful trees, ponds, ski trail and monuments, it's a peaceful place to take a walk, or a bike ride.

What makes this house unique

The home is close to activities but yet off the path so you can enjoy your privacy and quiet time. Love the history of the home, original hardwood floors and rounded archways and the front screen porch are my favorite place to enjoy a drink and the view. The design of the home is all on one level which is convenient for young and old.

A SUPER HOUSE IN MARQUETTE

  • 5 of 5

If you plan to spend some time in Marquette, this is the place if you like a big house on a quiet street within easy walking distance of downtown. My wife and I have stayed here in each of the last two years. We will be back. Great big tables, an outstanding kitchen. Just so comfortable. Barb is a great host!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect! It's an updated older home and they did an amazing job. We were so impressed with the inside (the outside pictures online do not do it justice). The location was great for us, as we like to walk to town. It is near a busy street (Washington), but it was very quiet, and we were there during NMU's homecoming.

Only thing I would suggest to future renters: bring your own pillow if your picky about pillows, the ones provided are stiff.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. Pillows are such a personal choice that I found it difficult to choose which type most people would like. After your review I added feather pillows to add to the mix. We now have firm, feather and squishy pillows, something for just about everyone. We'll do our best to provide the best experience possible. Thank you, hope to see you on your next trip to Marquette. Barb & Bob

Family friendly

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time using a rental home rather than a hotel. For this trip there were four adults and my two-year-old grandson. This house had a park directly across the street which made it very convenient for my grandson. The house was very accommodating for our family, I have everything that we would have our own home we feel very welcome and like we were at home. I Will use this service instead of going to a hotel for my future travel needs, there is no reason to ever use a hotel again!
