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.

Pics don't do it justice

We had a great stay here. The house really does sleep a lot of people given that it has 3 bedrooms, a pull out, and another large couch. It is a charming old house with lots of room in the kitchen and plenty of space to spread out. Walking distance to the downtown area is great. We enjoyed our time around the fire pit. My only suggestion would be it needs a full length mirror somewhere in the house! The owners were very nice, they left us a bag of coffee which was great.

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!

GREAT stay!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for our family vacation: walking distance to downtown Petoskey (with a beautiful view of the water from the street); plenty of space for 4 to spread out (both a parlor and a great room, plus a large dining table); full, well-stocked kitchen; nice deck for morning coffee or grilling; and a washer/dryer. The Little Traverse Wheelway (paved bike trail) can be picked up in town, and you can ride either into Harbor Springs or Charlevoix. Many places we have rented are stark & impersonal, but this is obviously a family home that is being shared - and we appreciated it!
