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 26 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 have 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, in 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.

Cute, Cozy, and Quaint
We really enjoyed our stay here. A nice quite little neighbourhood a block and a half away from the beach. With just a quick cruise down the scenic drive you are right downtown with fantastic choices for food and beverages. A home away from home that you’ll never forget!
Glad you guys enjoyed yourselves.
Breathtakingly beautiful views of Lake Superior
We enjoyed our stay in Marquette in “our sweet little home” everything we needed was provided in this home. The short walk to beach and in town a plus. Also a great jumping off place for sightseeing, (Sugarloaf Mt) (Pictured Rocks) and so much more! I especially enjoyed searching and collecting “sea glass” . Thank you for sharing your home

"Home away from home"
We just spent another wonderful week in Marquette! What a joy to have this Sweet Little Home as our "home". Perfect in every way for us! So glad we found it! Thank you Jim and Colleen. We look forward to returning in October.

Adorable home in a quiet and lovely neighborhood.
We loved being close to everything and enjoyed discovering the gorgeous beach that was just a few short blocks from the home. Well appointed and comfortably furnished. We especially enjoyed sitting on the back deck overlooking the lovely backyard. We highly recommend it! A great place to stay in Marquette!.
Great house and great location. Felt very welcome. Very clean with lots of amenities.
Owners are very accommodating. Looking forward to our next visit.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you again.
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.
