Guestbook comments from the owner

There is no other way to describe this other than "home". The minute we walked in we felt like it was ours. Waking up to a lovely view, comfortable furniture and clean, clean clean! It is so well maintained. We love Petoskey, love this place and love the Marsee's They are the perfect landlords...and I hope friends too! We walked the pier at sunset, walked into Petoskey often for dinner and shopping. Friends at the Marina gave us boat rides, and always there was the view.

I cannot recommend this enough. Book it now!!

Perfect Location in Petoskey!

  • 5 of 5

We love Petoskey and this house has it all! It is right on the Little Traverse Wheelway. It is a short walk into downtown. Sitting on the deck and taking in the view of the beautiful bay is a great way to have a drink and /or a meal!

120 Lake Street never disappoints - another great summer vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Another great week in this house in Petoskey makes 4 years in a row that have been perfect. The house is comfortable, and has plenty of room for us, our kids, and grandkids. It's location next to the marina, park, town, and the Little Traverse Wheelway makes a car unnecessary unless you want to visit nearby towns. The house is maintained well and has everything you need including a washer and dryer. I would recommend this house to anyone.

Awesome property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 3rd year we stayed at this house, and there will be more in the future. We come every year with our kids and grandkids, and it's a perfect place for our family. The home is right on the bay, next to the marina and park, and a 5 minute walk into downtown. It is fully stocked with all the items you need, including kitchen items. It is well maintained, clean, and perfect for a relaxing Petoskey week. The owners have always been responsive (although we've never had any issues), and deposits always returned in a very timely manner. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone wanting a family/group place to stay in the area.

Picture perfect

  • 5 of 5

Home is in a perfect location. Home layout is very functional and comfortable. Home is exactly as advertised. I would recommend you being your own bicycles as there are none on-site.

Another awesome vacation at this great Petoskey location!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at this beautiful location on the water, next to bay front park and a short walk to town did not disappoint. We stayed at this location last summer and couldn't wait to get back. We have visited the Petoskey area for many years, but this is by far the nicest place we've stayed. The house had plenty of room for our 3 family vacation, and is appointed with all the things you need for a week's stay. It is clean and well maintained with very nice furniture and appliances. We had an opportunity to meet the owners this year, nice folks, and a lot of fun.

I would recommend this property to anyone wanting an awesome view in a great Petoskey location.

50th Birthday Getaway-September 18-22, 2012. First floor level of the house.

  • 5 of 5

My husband wanted me to find a place in Petoskey for my 50th birthday. Right from my initial correspondence it was obvious Leslie was hopping onboard to see that our stay would be a memorable one. She was my first inquiry and right away I knew I would not need to look any further. What a beautiful place. If you are looking for something where numerous activities and/or sights are literally at your doorstep, this is where you want to be. We would highly recommend bringing your bicycles as the bike path is right out your back door. We rarely used our vehicle during our stay. Matthew and I arrived with such confidence that everything would be just as it was on the website and actually it was better. The pictures do not do this place justice. It is gorgeous without losing the feel of being cozy and comfortable.

We would like to thank Jeff and Leslie for being a huge part of making my 50th birthday unforgettable. Our only complaint, Leslie, is that you didn't control the weather. (Ha-Ha!) Actually, we were way OK with staying in on occasion because the place was so beautiful. A beverage, playing some cribbage, a fire and a perfect view of the bay was AWESOME!


Matt and Julie : )

P.S. We loved the fireplace so much we just got a gas insert installed in our fireplace at home. We chose the decorative rocks instead of the logs or gems. It's FANTASTIC! I don't think we would have done that without enjoying yours. Thanks again! M & J.
