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 Upper Peninsula

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.

Wonderful House!

  • 4 of 5

The house was very well maintained and had all the conveniences necessary for a comfortable stay. It was a little small but ended up being perfect for our needs! We were there in February and the owners were very prompt in clearing the porch, sidewalk and driveway. Overall our stay was wonderful and I would highly recommend this property.

Great find!

  • 5 of 5

The house was adorable and in a great location. The house was very clean fully stocked with anything you might need. I can't wait to stay here in the summer months and take advantage of the proximity to the bike path and beaches.

This was definately a Sweet Little Home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Marquette at this Sweet Little Home. It was perfect for our stay. It had everything we needed. We made breakfast at the house and then we tried different restaurants in the area for dinner. We are hoping to return this spring or summer.

Great retreat

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful little home that is just perfect for a short weekend away. Owners went above the typical rental standards and added small touches to make our birthday weekend great! Looking forward to staying again.

Could not have asked for a better place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for two nights in January. The house is the cleanest vacation rental we have ever rented and was the perfect size. We were only staying for two nights so we didn't need many of the amenities available but the kitchen had everything you would need for cooking and eating in. The layout and the decor was very functional and comfortable and provided a fantastic experience each night as we got home from the cold and settled in to watch a little TV. We were fortunate enough to get a nice snowfall while we were there. Between the snow coming down (for the better part of two days) and the interior and exterior of the home providing the feeling of a cozy retreat, it was just idyllic. We really did not require much during our stay, but if we would have, I have no doubt that James and Colleen would be very attentive to whatever needs a guest may have. They live next-door which means they are extremely available but also give you as much privacy as you would want. The location also cannot be beat. It is only two or three minutes to basically get anywhere (dining,breweries, shopping,Presque Isle, NMU) and the beach is two blocks away. We have been coming to Marquette for the last five years and for some reason had not been in this particular neighborhood. What a mistake. It has some of the nicest homes in the city and provides such a wonderful neighborhood experience. Can not wait to have a reason to go 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.
