Three bedrooms 2.5 bath this home must be seen to believe. Your own private sanctuary. This would be a great home for couples to share. It is a great design to entertain. Every where you look from my paintings to all the little details you will be greatly surprised. You will be so happy with your choice. This home is bright, fun, and whimsical. And for cocktails and food, the Petoskey Brewery is just a few staggering steps away.
Artist and Hairdresser, I have taken great pride with this home. I request you take your time to enjoy all the little details I have created.
Richard Pickett purchased this house in 2001
Everything in this home has been updated. Furniture, mattresses, linens, towels, down to the potato peeler, every thing is new. Pictures of this lovely home doesn't quite capture.
Stained glass windows from Harbor Springs First Presbyterian Church are over 120 years old. Fire pit for hot dog and marshmallows. Sit and rock your cares away on the patio by the lake. Simply beautiful!
Beautiful, peaceful setting. Landscaping was beautiful, the house was very uniquely decorated and featured several beautiful oil paintings by the home owner, as well as other artists. A word I might use to describe the décor would be "eclectic". When I had occasion to speak with the owner, he was extremely polite and helpful. I would definitely consider returning.
WOW! What a place.
We were a group of three couples in the area for a wedding at the Inn at Bay Harbor. This house was a great choice! Plenty of room for us all, and so beautifully decorated. A treat for the eyes, and not just for the ladies, our husbands were impressed also.
The location worked out very well too. Approximately 15 minutes from the wedding, Petoskey State Park about 5 minutes down the road (great beach area) and the bike/walking path goes right by the house!
We enjoyed breakfast on the patio in the mornings, and spent time around the fire pit relaxing in the evenings. You must take the time to enjoy every room in the house and take in all the details of the decor. The Master Bedroom and Bath were stunning - good luck deciding which lucky couple gets that room :)
The owner was great to work with, responding quickly to any questions we had. Thank you for sharing your lovely home, we are already talking about going back up for a fall trip.
We absolutely enjoyed our stay at this one of a kind house filled with beautiful art and lovely furnishings. The patio area is very serene, from breakfast through evening cocktails. Plenty of wonderful walking trails right out the door and within walking distance to the beach. The house was very clean and well maintained. The owners were also very pleasant to deal with.
The property is beautiful! The property is easy to find and well kept. The pictures look amazing, but it is even better in person. It is close to many restaurants and great small town shopping. The ski slopes and snowmobile rental locations were just minutes away. What more could you ask for?
We have stayed in several great VRBO listed properties over the years and this is by far the most elegantly decorated. We all looked at each other and asked why someone would decorate a home so nicely just to rent it out to strangers. We definitely were not complaining, just very surprised in a good way.
We had family come from Florida who had never seen snow. The location is perfect for snow and the home added to a great first experience. They now want to make it a trip every other year at Christmas time. It is one that we will want to go back to for many years to come.
We can't wait to return!
My wife and a couple of her friends wanted to get away so I rented this home for them. They RAVED about the place. Peace and tranquility, beautiful furnishings and decorations, comfortable beds...literally couldn't stop talking about it. The owner was a breeze to work with, everything went off without a hitch.
What a great long weekend getaway! We enjoyed this unique and quirky home. From the minute you enter the doors the ambiance is amazing. Our family enjoyed the peaceful setting of the lake and the two Swans were entertainment. It was so much fun to discover all the details of the decorating. The home is comfortable and the kitchen is gourmet all the way. This is truly and extraordinary property!
During your stay you might want to visit: The historic downtown gaslight districk in Petoskey (Named one of America's best small tows in 2013 by Smithsonian Magazine) located on the bay it offers unique shops, bars & restaurants. Enjoy a leisurely day at the beach at Petoskey State Park. Quaint & charming Harbor Springs just a few miles away is also a must see. Mackinac City / Mackinac Island is only a 40 minute drive away and would make for a wonderful day trip. Explore the streets & Victorian historical homes of Bay View. All these are among many other adventures awaiting you.
