About James and Colleen Clark

Jim is born and raised in Marquette, and Colleen's roots reach back to Marquette, even though she was raised in lower Michigan. They have been back in Marquette for 28 years, it is where they raised their family, in the home that Jim was raised in.

James and Colleen Clark purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why James and Colleen Clark chose Marquette

We had had our eye on this property since we purchased the home we live in (right next door), in 2005. The 300 foot deep, wooded lot is a beautiful natural setting, within the city limits!

Sweet Superior Retreat came to be because that is exactly what it is. It's a charming, peaceful little place, and the more that we worked on updating this special place we'd been watching (and caretaking) for 9 years, the more special it became to us.

What makes this bungalow unique

500 feet from the ever changing Lake Superior & it's beautiful beaches; miles of walking/biking paths; 4 nearby parks & playgrounds; ability to walk or bike to historic downtown Marquette and Third Street's shops, bars and restaurants.

Notes:
IMPORTANT: We have noticed that many of our guests spend a lot of money on drinking water, which means a lot of plastic. We'd like our guests to know that Marquette's water is microfiltered. We have REALLY good tap water. We'd suggest giving it a try before spending unnecessarily on water and adding to the plastic issues for our environment. To that end, we have added in our information binder the testing sheet of the results for the testing of Marquette's water supply. And, also IMPORTANT: we simply request that our guests treat this special little home with the same care and respect with which it is prepared for them.

A Perfect Location to Experience Marquette’s Beauty

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place for one or two people. It’s two blocks to beautiful Lake Superior and an easy walk to McCarty’s Cove, Mattson Harbor, Picnic Rocks, or Washington Street shops. There is easy access to Presque Isle and beautiful sunsets. The house is charming and clean with a lovely back yard for enjoying am coffee or pm lemonade.

Charming little getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely perfect for a weekend of exploring in Marquette. The house was spotless and had so much character and charm. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood and is very close to Lake Superior and downtown Marquette. I would highly recommend this property and will definitely stay there again. Beautiful framed photos and lots of personal touches. Loved it!

A Great Little Place

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at this charming little house. The location is perfect. Close to the beach and walking/biking trail as well as less than a mile from lots of dining options, breweries, coffee shops, parks and much more.

The house itself was very clean and well kept.The owners definitely do a good job of maintaining this house. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils and cooking equipment.

I would definitely recommend this house.

This home is clean, comfortable, and fantastic. Perfect example of a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Colleen’s home is absolutely fantastic. The house is clean, comfortable, and the perfect size for two people. The beach and downtown is in walking distance. I would definitely recommend bringing a bike as I would have loved to bike around town and the city. I can’t wait to come back. :)

Steps from Lake Superior and miles of beaches, 3 water front playgrounds/parks and walking/biking paths. Also, a neighborhood park with playground, basketball court and tennis courts. This home is situated in the historic east side neighborhood of Marquette, MI, on a large, private, wooded lot that will soon have you forgetting that you are less than a ten minute walk from the local favorite shops, restaurants and bars of Downtown and Third Street.

Marquette has been nationally recognized for it's mountain biking and Nordic ski trail systems; and is also home to one of the best Midwest alpine ski facilities, Marquette Mountain.

We are also proud to have Northern Michigan University (NMU) as a resident, and all the college athletics (hockey, football, volleyball, Nordic skiing...) that come with it, as well as the Olympic Training Center that it supports.

NMU also provides the community with live theatre productions at The Forest Roberts Theatre; and in the summer, Lake Superior Theatre Company brings performance to the waterfront.

Marquette is home to many well known events throughout the year, beginning in January with the nationally known Noquemanon Ski Race; February brings the U.P. 200 Dogsled Races; and summer brings Food Festivals, Art on the Rocks, The Outback Art Fair, Blueberry Festival, The Blues Festival and the Ore2Shore Mountain Bike Race, just to name a few. Many of these events are held at Mattson Lower Harbor Park, just a short walk on the bike path away from this charming little home.
