About Terri & John OBrien

We love everything about Michigan!

Terri & John OBrien purchased this house in 2014

Why Terri & John OBrien chose Northwest

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.

This was a charming and very tidy house, located near downtown Petoskey. Perfect place to stay for a ski weekend - with some great views of the bay! My family had a wonderful time!

Great rental property! You'll love it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 parents & 3 college aged kids) had a wonderful stay in the O'Brien's home over New Year's weekend. The house was a perfect size for us and I appreciated all of the amenities. We enjoyed the large, well equipped kitchen and the dining room for family meals. The huge, comfortable couch in the family room was perfect for watching movies &/or football. The beds were comfortable and the decorations were charming, tasteful, and eclectic. The location of the house could not have been better. Some of us headed to the local ski slopes daily while others of us walked several blocks to downtown area to explore the fun shopping and dining options. The O'Briens were gracious hosts and we felt lucky that they were willing to share their lovely home with us over the holidays. We would definitely go back in the future!

A Perfectly Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at the Hilltop in Petoskey. The house was very comfortable, well appointed and convenient. There were 5 of us ( two families, including a toddler) in town for a family wedding. We enjoyed the backyard deck, the close walk to coffee shops and parks, and the overall lovliness and spaciousness of the house. Terri was so easy to work with and very accomodating. We would love to stay here again!

Terrific Petoskey Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend in Petoskey in part due to choosing the Petoskey Hilltop home as our accommodations. In addition to being spacious and welcoming, this home had everything we needed to make our stay extremely comfortable. In addition to three nicely appointed bedrooms, (with comfortable beds) to fall into after our busy days and nights, the living areas provided ample room reading, relaxing, game playing and puzzle assembly. We were thankful for the piles of plush towels and the roomy kitchen with every small appliance and gadget needed to create a family feast. The great location allowed us to walk downtown and to the lake shore at a moment's notice. All in all, it was a great home. We'd definitely stay here again!
