About Terri & John OBrien

We love everything about Michigan!

Terri & John OBrien purchased this house in 2014

Why Terri & John OBrien chose Petoskey

We have been coming to Petoskey for years and just love the downtown, the incredible views of Little Traverse Bay and the variety of outdoor things to do in the area.

What makes this house unique

We loved our home the moment we walked through! The rooms are very spacious and cozy. The family room seats 11-12 people so it is a great spot to relax and play games with the family after a day on the slopes or a day at the beach.

Beautiful home in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful home! It was incredibly clean and well-maintained, with a lovely deck and outdoor area. And the best part was the location. We could easily walk to downtown Petoskey, which is by far one of the best areas in Northern Michigan. Full of shops, including an enchanting bookstore, restaurants, and a great toy story for kids. It's the perfect place to spend a vacation. We loved every minute of our trip and were thankful to stay in this lovely home.

There were eight of us sisters for "Sister's Weekend". We so enjoyed staying at this home for the weekend. So fun to all be together and have lots of room to move around. So convenient to the sites, church, shopping and casino! Lots of love and laughter shared this weekend. Thank you for sharing your home!

The house was a great location to downtown Petoskey. The house had everything in it you could possibly want. It never got above 75 outside, so we weren't concerned with the house not having any central air. It was beautiful!!! Thank you!

Location, location, location!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this property. The location was perfect! It was a 5-minute walk into town to all of the restaurants and shopping, and beautiful hiking/walking trails were nearby. Everything we needed was in the house, and we enjoyed making a fire in the backyard fire pit. If we return to Petoskey, we will definitely consider returning to 808 Petoskey Street!
