Petosky Pleasure

  • 5 of 5

One week just wasn't enough time to enjoy this e-z living upstairs home away from home. With everything possible needed for cooking in, and comfy-cozy, it was a joy to be both chillin' at 'home' and taking a carless tour from upstairs to multiple streeted uptown. It's a beautiful walk from the lighthouse and beach right out front where Petosky stones are waiting to be found, along the Marina, Museum and through the tunnel which opens to the heart of the city. I could almost cast to the lighthouse which is surrounded by hungry smallies who could not resist a drop-shotted crawler, with salmon just as close. All of this along with a location allowing an easy day trip over the rolling hills of 'Troll' country (ask when you get there!), along the coast of Superior up into the high rock outcroppings of Canada. For years we've enjoyed doin' the Door, the Petosky area charmed us too. Our first visit will not be our last! Many Thanks to the very warm and friendly owners for VRBOing their home!

Location, Scenery and Efficiency Can't Get any Better!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed 13 days at this property where I enjoyed the beautiful scenery of Little Traverse Bay from my deck, the central location which allowed me to walk to Petoskey for lunch and shopping and the efficiency of the apartment due to its furnishings and the many supplies that helped make my cooking a small task.

The apartment was designed to allow for the most efficiency for the guests. Everything had its place and operated perfectly. I was surprised at the many kitchen items-- everything from a mixer to wine glasses, refrigerator bowls and lots of cookware. The washer and dryer operated perfectly as well as the internet and cable services.

Petoskey offers so many activities and this location was close to all of them. Everything from shopping, dining, and exploring galleries. I also explored the Harbor Springs area and Pond Hill Farm. Plus, the scenery allowed you the opportunity to walk to the lighthouse in the mornings, and enjoy the many sunrises and sunsets over the water. How can it get any better than this?

I look forward to my next visit.

Fifth Year in a Row at 12O Lake Street!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been returning to this location each year because it meets our needs perfectly. The upstairs unit is the perfect size for a couple, the view is outstanding and the amenities just to our liking. The owners are always accessible and accommodating. It is an easy walk to the Gaslight District in Petoskey and there are many golf courses located within an easy drive. We love this place enough to have already booked for a week in 2017, highly recommend this property.

You cannot beat this view!!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, a few blocks for the Gaslight district in Petoskey, restaurants, shopping. Lovely drives. Mackinac Island is just 1/2 hours away plus all the water sports you want. The Traverse Wheelway is literally at your front driveway and it is a beautiful and fairly flat (ok fairly flat towards Charlevoix....Harbor Springs more of a challenge!) Rental is up a set of steps and is a little A-Frame perched on top of a house!! Great light with windows nd skylights, all the amenities, good use of the space. ONLY boo-hoo I have is No Pets!!

On the Bay Front, Layin Back

  • 5 of 5

Great Value for one of the best locations on Lil Traverse Bay.

Park your car and leave it til time to go home.

Convenient location, especially walking distance to downtown. Lively in the early evenings, with walkers and sunset watchers, gives a sense of small town community spirit. On Waterwheel Bike Path.

I walked past this unit for years always thinking it would be a terrific location to stay on the Bay. I was right. It is a comfortable second floor unit with a nice balcony and grill. Sunsets from the living room and sunrises from the bedroom. Nicely furnished; perfect size for one or two lazy people.

The owners of this sweet Bay front apartment are extremely, who are flexible and appreciate their guests.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

As a former 30 year Petoskey cottage owner I found this unit to be first class. Great view, walking distance to downtown and great finishes inside. Very quiet and peaceful. As an experienced Petoskeyite there not a better place for a couple. Wonderful owners . Eager to return to this spot.
