About Bill and Phyllis Marshall

My wife and I grew up in Northern Michigan. After college graduation we got jobs in Mt. Pleasant, MI where we raised our 3 children. We have now (semi) retired to our beloved Northern Michigan to enjoy all it's beauty.

What makes this house unique

My dad grew up in this house, as did my grandparents and great-grandparents. It is a dedicated historic farm. It is also a beautiful, peaceful place to land after a busy day of sight seeing or you can sit and enjoy the blissful quiet for the week.

Though the home is old and you can feel the history of the working farm of days gone by, there have been many updates over the years and it is now a very comfortable home with all the amenities.

Peaceful, Lots of Space, Gorgerous, CLEAN Home for our ladies vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home has all the amenities and comforts of your home! We cooked/ enjoyed breakfasts and dinners at the large dining room table and the kitchen had all the items we needed for food preparation! Besides the gorgeous sunsets and sunrises, we watched a DVD on the large screen TV (no TV or Wi-Fi service) and loved the peace and quiet. The laundry room worked great and kept us going all week. The sightseeing 3-ring binder with all the local tourist attractions was very helpful - what a nice bonus we did not expect! The friendly people at the Mackinaw City Visitors office, were very helpful (work interruption for one of us), have internet service and was our 1st stop every morning. If you are a geology buff, you will love their rock collection and explanations regarding the long history of this area. Once we got lost coming from another direction and the guy at the local general store gave us directions as he knew exactly where this 100 plus year old historic home was! Small town America! We were there to see the Mackinaw City/ Island area (none of us had ever been there) and were always amazed at how welcoming, kind and friendly all the people we encountered were - A+++!! Over the top! Thanks for a wonderful time!

Bliss on Bliss Street

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to unplug. We went for 5 days without television, internet, or cell phone. It was like going back in time, and we were able to slow down and really relax. We enjoyed running through the country roads and through the labyrinth of trails in Wilderness State Park. The beach along Sturgeon Bay was completely ours, and the sunset views from the farm were amazing. The farm house was comfortable and functional. Phyllis and Bill, our hosts, met us at the farm the day we arrived and were very warm and welcoming offering info for dining, shopping, and other nearby sights. This was a great place to escape the “rat race.” I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a getaway. I would love to come back in the fall because I have a feeling with all the great trees that the colors will be spectacular.

Thanks Bill and Phyllis!

A slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This home was delightful, with a fully stocked kitchen and comfortable beds we felt right at home, we were close enough to some of the most wonderful beaches I'd ever seen and the water was pristine. From here we could easily tour some of Northern Michigan finest tourist attractions and enjoy golf to our hearts content. The property is large enough our kids ran wild and free, we brought their bikes and they had so much fun riding them on the quiet road. Possibly the best part of all was sitting on the back porch at sunset and taking in the view of over the expansive was truly spectacular and we can't wait to return.
