"Cottage on Second" a great home base.

  • 5 of 5

I spent the months of February and March at the "Cottage on Second".

The cottage served me well during my stay. It's in a great location, quiet neighborhood, spacious, clean and comfortable. Having a washer and dryer, dishwasher, WIFI, and cable TV with a television in the sitting room and bedroom was a plus.

I appreciate and thank Jim for clearing the snow from the walk and driveway as needed during these winter months.

The cottage was a great home base for me during my stay in Marquette.

Cozy home in town

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed this past weekend while visiting his children in Marquette. We come up quite a bit, and will definitely be staying at this home again. Was super cozy, spacious, and was well stocked with anything we needed. The kids had internet, Netflix, puzzles and games to keep themselves busy. We really enjoyed the home and could not say enough nice things about it!

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cozy house was the perfect retreat. The house was clean and very welcoming. It is located in the perfect area and we were able to walk downtown with ease. The owners added a personal touch to the property and made us feel right at home. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in the area. We will definitely be back!

Roomy, Comfortable, and Affordable

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at this cottage for 3 nights while visiting my daughter who's an NMU student. The neighborhood was nice and very quiet and there was plenty of room for parking.

The fact that I was able to bring my daughter's dog up to see her made the visit even more special.

The cottage looks small from the outside, but it's really very spacious and has a great layout. The beds were comfortable and the shower was nice, with plenty of hot water. The kitchen was well-appointed with nice appliances. I even used the washer and dryer, which was a much appreciated added bonus.

We had one minor issue, but Mr Clements was very responsive and addressed it immediately. This was a great place to stay...and I would stay again in a heartbeat.

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it could use a good dusting. But other than that it was very clean. Again, this is a really nice place to stay and I would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a great stay.

Lovely Cottage in the North Woods!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for two nights with our two dogs to celebrate our anniversary. The cottage was perfect! Lovely layout of the home and in a great location. We were a 15 minute walk from downtown Marquette, and a 5-10 minute walk from great local restaurants, shops, and more. We look forward to coming back!

Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed at this cottage during Family Weekend at NMU. We really enjoyed our stay! Our NMU daughter wanted some home cooked food while we were there. Baked a cake, had a pastie dinner, pancake breakfast. Kitchen was modestly equipped. I was glad that I brought our griddle, cake pan, and apple corer. I did not find a spatula for the cake batter/pancake batter but managed. Some of the things we loved were the firepit, the tvs in 2 separate locations, the dinner area (we played cards), and the location. We also loved being able to bring our dog up with us. Our daughter wanted to see her too. While this home is not impeccably clean, (Cobwebs in corners and behind things) we felt at home and immensely enjoyed our time in Marquette. Thank you Jim! We hope to stay here next year in the fall!
