Overview

Petoskey House Rental Photos and Description

In-town home, sleeps 8, quiet area

This newer cottage has all the comforts you have come to expect in today's modern world, situated within a mile of the gaslight shopping district and Little Traverse Bay. Enjoy the cool breeze from the bay from our large and well-appointed decks. By night, gaze at the stars, admire the twinking lights of downtown Petoskey, and enjoy a grilled dinner 'al fresco.' Located just up the hill from the Bear River Recreational Trail, our cottage is in a quiet neighborhood convenient to shopping, Little Traverse Bay, the marina, beaches, restaurants, the Odawa Casino, and the hospital. It is the perfect home base from which to explore the natural beauty and attractions of Northern Michigan. The first floor features the living room, dining area, kitchen, partially covered decks with a gas grill, the laundry room, a full bath, and a bedroom appointed with a queen bed and bunk beds (the room feels larger, due to the architect's utilization of space). The second floor is the master suite, featuring a queen sleigh bed and the full bedroom suite, a full-size sleeper sofa, a private upper deck, a full bathroom with whirlpool tub, a walk-in closet, and a loft open to the living room below. The driveway is paved and the garage can be made available for storage of skis, snowmobiles, bikes, kayaks, etc. This house was recently furnished with all-new furnishings and is ready to be your vacation destination.

Why David Whitworth chose Petoskey

We have been visiting Petoskey and Northern Michigan for over 15 years. We purchased this property because it has everything we were looking for in a residence and it is our intention to use it ourselves part of the time now, and to probably retire here in the future.

What makes this house unique

This home was specially designed to take full advantage of the site. While it is in town, it feels like a retreat, with some wooded areas outside. Even though the house is not next to the bay, you can enjoy the bay breeze from the decks, situated on the north side of the house.

Clean and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We were in Petoskey for a week and stayed at this property. The house was clean and well taken care of. It was a comfortable place to come back to at the end of the day, with some nice couches and chair to relax and watch the flat screen TV. The weather wasn't nice enough to use, but there is a nice big deck with a grill. It's in a decent location close to downtown. If I need another rental in Petoskey I would definitely rent this home again.

This home was very well appointed, clean and easy to find all the essentials. We enjoyed our time at this peaceful home. It has very easy access to downtown and the surrounding areas. I would recommend this property to friends and family members.

Beautiful Home !!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this home never booking from Homeaway before. I must say we were pleasantly surprised with this home, it was extremely nice !! Very clean and well appointed !! Even my high school and college aged boys were happy with this home. The house is close to everything, we spent a day in Mackinaw City, rented bikes and rode the Little Traverse Bay Wheelway trail and spent time in Petoskey State Park, all in four days time and because everything was so close we didn't feel rushed for time. We plan on coming back to this house next year.

Great location and lots of fun!

  • 4 of 5

We rented the house for our annual ski trip with our adult children. We had a great time and the house was perfect. Very impressed with the kitchen supplies, extra linens, and organization. You can tell they have rented before and know just what vacationers need. Our only disappointment was there's only one shower. The master bath has a beautiful jacuzzi type tub, instead of a shower. It wasn't a big deal, we made due with the one, and I'd gladly stay here again.

Petoskey

  • 5 of 5

Property within 5-10 minutes of downtown Petoskey, within walking distance of grocery, shopping restaurants, etc. Very clean and well maintained home in residential area of town. Owner very helpful in recommendations for the area and information regarding the property. Would definitely recommend to friends/family who are visiting the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. We also love to walk or bike the Bear River Trail to downtown and the marina. It's very convenient to the best Petoskey offers, but is also in a very quiet neighborhood. We try to keep updated information from our favorite restaurants and shops at the house, in case you'd like to try them too. We're very happy you had a good visit and hope you can come back some time.
