About Tom and Kathy Horton

Tom and I bought this cottage in April of 2016 so we had a place to stay when we came up to Marquette to visit our son and daughter in law and our daughter who goes to NMU.

Tom and Kathy Horton purchased this house in 2016

Why Tom and Kathy Horton chose Marquette

We bought this house because it was close to the beach and bike path as well a few blocks from restaurants and shopping. The house has a nice big yard in front and a back yard with lots of privacy. The house is the perfect size for the two of us and and extra bedroom for friends or family to visit.

What makes this house unique

Perfect place to relax and be able to walk to everything you need. Please check out our Web Video . Go to the section that says Web Links and click on the box next to URL.

Cottage was very nice and clean. The location is great, a very short walk to a beautiful sandy beach and bike path. House was stocked with everything we need. Would definitely recommend!

Special VRBO

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay of 13 nights at what is indeed a Quaint and Charming cottage. It was in an excellent location, not far from the bike path and Lake Superior. The Hortons were great to work with, and the written instructions for living in this cottage were very clear. The kitchen was well equipped and stocked, and the beds were very comfortable. There had been a fair amount of remodeling and updating, and the cottage was very clean. We would not hesitate to recommend this VRBO.

The cottage is attractive, comfortable, clean, and convenient to the Lake and town.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage very much. The Horton's were pleasant to work with, and responsive to our questions. The beds were comfortable and attractive, the kitchen had a large supply of cookware and dishes. The living room had comfortable seating and was lightfilled. There is a den which was handy to store craft supplies for use with my granddaughter. My husband enjoyed sitting under the huge shade tree in the front yard.

And we enjoyed walking over to the Lakeshore trail. It was also very handy to 3rd st. for

restaurants and a small grocery store. Hope to be able to rent it again in the future!

Close to lake, town, clean house. It was perfect for our family of four with small

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is great! Such a great place and location. About 5 blocks from our daughter's house.

Plenty of room for the 3 of us.

Very clean and neat. Just what we like!

The only thing that I would recommend is recycling bins in the back room by the washer and dryer. Or maybe small bins under the kitchen sink.

Over all a great experience. Even the snow shovelers were very friendly!

We would stay in this house again!đź‘Ť
