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.

Love this little house!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful week in Marquette enjoying our friends, the beautiful fall colors, and warm temperatures. (We returned to Cincinnati the day before the big storm...) We have long considered Marquette our second home, but up until last May have always stayed in a hotel. Now that we have discovered this "Sweet Little Home", we have the perfect place to come home to in Marquette, as well. Thank you Jim and Colleen for sharing your special retreat with us. We love living there! We will see you in the Spring!

Sweet little house

  • 5 of 5

We (two medium-sized adults) had a great stay at this cozy cottage. It was super clean and comfortable, and within a 20-minute walk of all the restaurants, shops and brew pubs in town. We would totally stay here again.

Perfect spot for our Marquette visit

  • 5 of 5

Home is in a quiet residential neighborhood, 2 blocks from Lake Superior and local beach.

Also very close to downtown, so lots of activities within walking distance. Home is very well maintained and has wonderful amenities.

Great little house with all you need and more.

  • 5 of 5

We used to live in the east side of Marquette. Staying at the Sweet Superior Retreat allowed us to visit old friends and hit our old haunts all within walking distance. In many ways it felt like we had never moved away. Lake Superior is so close we could hear the waves crashing through open windows. Colleen and Jim have done a great job providing all you need and more. The house is tidy, well stocked, with storage for your gear. The back yard is fantastic and was full of ripe blackberries...what a treat! We hope to visit again next year. Thanks!

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.
