To make your stay even easier you'll have access to laundry facilities in the basement.

Walk along the river, to the waterfront, and throughout the shopping district for unique finds and dining choices. Spend your days enjoying world class skiing, sledding, and ice skating in the winter, or swimming, playing golf, boating, canoeing, biking, fishing, walking, and more, in the summer. There is also a world class casino, Odawa, just a few miles away for gaming, dining, and shopping.

I am a high school English and journalism teacher and my husband is an electrical engineer. I earned my bachelor's degree from CMU, master's from Wayne State. After several years in the advertising business, I stayed home with my girls until they were all in elementary school, then went back to school to get my teaching certificate. I now teach at Lake Orion High School. We have three daughters and live in Lake Orion.

Stephanie Orth purchased this cottage in 2010

I grew up with a cottage in Harbor Springs, owned by my grandparents. I fell in love with the area. My husband and I decided Petoskey was a little more our speed, and spent one weekend looking at houses for sale. We fell in love with the front porch, incredible wood trim, fire place, and potential to make the attic a play space for kids. The charming kitchens - two, making having more than one family here a breeze - were a huge bonus. Add in the carriage house with a second floor, wonderful neighbors, and ability to walk everywhere, and we were sold.

Our family loves to downhill ski all winter and this location offers 3 world class ski hills within 15 minutes. In the summer, we stroll downtown Petoskey trying all of the quaint restaurants and sandwich shops, and of course, ice cream shops. We love walking along Bear River and out to the lighthouse where our children will spend hours jumping from the break wall into the bay. We also enjoy biking along the Wheelway into Charlevoix for lunch, and back again.

Great place for a large group. Plenty of room for everyone. Walking distance to downtown restaurants and retail stores. Casino close by for gamblers. Golf courses available within 10 minutes. Two kitchens first and second floors. Great table on first floor for eating and socializing. We used the second floor table for poker and beer. The owner was prompt with details about rental. You won't regret this place if you need to stay somewhere in Petoskey.

This wonderful old home has so much character and the owners have done such a great job at decorating it to be very welcoming, comfortable and clean. My friends and I stayed her for a 3 day weekend and had such a great time. A short walk to downtown Petoskey shops, restaurants, parks and the water. A great house to stay at for any family/friends vacation.

This home is beautiful and very clean. There is plenty of room for two families and a great play space for kids on the third floor. The house is located close to town and the new greenway and we were able walk to restaurants, parks, and nature trails. The kitchens are well stocked and we really enjoyed the fire pit in the back yard. The owners are very responsive. We will stay at this house again and recommend it to friends.

This vacation home in Petoskey is outstanding! Beautiful, charming home is very clean and nicely furnished. Kitchens on both levels are well stocked with everything you would need. Fire pit in backyard is super fun. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back. We had friends join us partway thru the week and they loved the house as well. So much room! The attic is SUPER AWESOME for kids and adults alike - fully redone and stocked with games, flat screen tv, dvd, movies, beanbag chairs and comfy futons. Our kids were in 7th heaven!! Walk to the Bear Creek Recreation area at the end of the street and 2 minute walk to downtown shops, restaurants and sights. Beach area is 3 blocks away. You can't ask for anything more!
