Guestbook comments from the manager

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!!

Lakefront with View - Steps to Downtown Petoskey/Marina/Bike Path/Park/Beach
average rating of 5.0 based on 22 reviews


  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location for all things Petoskey. The park and pier are across the street perfect for swimming and pier jumping, playing frisbee, flying kites, hunting Petoskey stones and basking in the sunshine! The bike path is there as well - easy to bike to Charlevoix. Great restaurants and ice cream are easy walks away. The house is well stocked with anything you could want. The kitchen and grill provide easy meals "at home"! We also spent time at the State Park beach and the fish hatchery. So much to do and this house is centrally located so you can do it all! Great for our family with lots of different ages!! We will be back!

Perfect Location /Well Appointed

  • 5 of 5

An excellent 2 week stay in the lower level of this two level house. Has all the key amenities and they all work ! No issues save a bit of noise from the folks upstairs ---loud coughing and could hear most of their footsteps on our ceiling. This was not a major problem .

The setting is so special. Across the street from the marina and Little Traverse Bay , yet very quiet , an easy walk to town and delightful restaurants and shops. . Bring a bicycle or rent one as the bike path is right there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting this review. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay in Petoskey and in the house. Since the upstairs is only over the living area, hopefully the sounds did not interfere with your time in the front of the house [bedrooms and den].

Still enjoying this house by the bay!

We spent another beautiful week at this house this year with the kids and grandkids. The house never disappoints, as the old real estate mantra goes, location, location, location. This one is perfect just steps away from the marina, park, town, and breakwater. Also the Little Traverse Wheelway goes right by so it's perfect for walking, running, or biking. And the view can't be beat. But in addition to the location the house has everything you need for a great week! Thanks again to the owners for another awesome holiday!

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.
