Our airy, family-friendly 4 bedroom Victorian home is in one of the most convenient and central locations in Marquette. 10 min. walk to downtown MQT, the Harbor, grocery store, pharmacy and sit down/fast food dining. 15 minute walk to Marquette General Hospital, NMU, and white sand beaches at Mc Carty's Cove on Lake Superior.

About Amber Dohrenwend

Hi! We're the Dohrenwends, a family of four that live and work abroad in Tokyo, Japan. While we're here we love to spend our time picking blueberries, riding our bikes on Marquette's excellent bike paths, going on picnics to the beautiful local beaches and waterfalls, hiking on trails off of CR 550, fishing, rock-climbing and gardening.

Amber Dohrenwend purchased this house in 2007

Why Amber Dohrenwend chose Marquette

One of the things we love about our house in Marquette is the easy access to so many of our favorite local spots! Our two children love to visit the excellent Peter White Public Library, playgrounds, and local farmers' market on Saturdays, all within 10 minutes walk from our front door. 3rd Street, which is a 1/2 block away, has more than 10 local restaurants on offer, a small grocery store, pharmacy, local brewery, you name it... our location couldn't be more ideal for your stay, whether you are attending one of Marquette's many events, visiting a son or daughter at NMU, utilizing services at Marquette General Hospital, or enjoying the dizzying amount of recreational activities on offer in the region.

Aside from the location, we think you'll enjoy the character of our 100 year old Victorian house. It has lots of natural light, turn-of-the-century wood moldings, bannisters and doors, 10 foot ceilings, stained glass windows, a claw-foot bathtub, front porch and back sun room. We have a large fenced-in back yard which is shaded by a giant silver Maple, one of the oldest trees in the city. If you're here in spring, summer, or fall you can help yourself to some of the fruits and vegetables we grow in our garden. Depending on when you're here, there may be strawberries, asparagus, rhubarb, fresh herbs, raspberries, apples, tomatoes, or salad greens. And if you've got a green thumb yourself you're welcome to pull a weed or two if you can't help yourself.

Perfect place to stay for my family

  • 5 of 5

My family and In-laws stayed here and had a wonderful time!!! The house was clean and inviting. This charming old house won our hearts. My kids asked if we had to go home. We created some great family memories with a fun game of Twister and some late night cards games. We were in town for the 8 man State Football Championships. We had many envious friends that we staying in hotels. We were so close to cute shops and coffee shops. We could even walk to Blackrocks brewery! That was my husband's favorite perk. We brought our dog and he was so happy to join us on our trip. We we are already trying to find another time to make the trip up north.

Very cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home. It was perfect for our needs. Plenty of room and comfortable to hang out on a rainy day. We got in very late and accessed easily. Didn't cook so can't say anything about kitchen amenities. Plenty of room to move for our larger family. My toddlers enjoyed playing with the toys which was great because we usually bring stuff but we ended up coming later then expected and forgot stuff. Tastefully decorated. Loved sitting on front porch since it pored the whole time, nice to be outside. Beds were ok for comfort. We are used to our comfy bed at home. Easy location. Friendly neighborhood although the party from the college kids a couple doors down seemed a bit obnoxious with bottles being thrown and the sound of broken glass. They weren't overly loud for having a party and it was game day so, in a college town, not intolerable. Your home was great it was a comfortable stay and enjoyed. We ended up taking our garbage with us because couldn't find the green bag or can. Had a great stay in your beautiful home and would stay again :) Beautiful town, only wished it didn't rain so we could go for a hike, maybe next time.

Located perfectly in downtown Marquette within walking distance to the restaurants, breweries, shopping, shoreline walkway, and Lake Superior with a short drive to the hiking and biking trails. The host Amber was wonderful!! She answered all of my email questions within a day. The home was clean and very cozy. I would stay again!!! Thanks Amber we had a great time :)

Perfect for a family wedding trip

  • 5 of 5

Our best friends were married at Little Presque Isle Park, and we traveled with our 12 week old and a slew of family serving as our 'wedding nannies.' This house provided every bit of comfort when could've hoped for in traveling with our infant and served as the perfect space for the groom and guys to get dressed and ready for the wedding. For having 8 people staying, we had more than enough beds but there is only the one full bath and it's on the second floor, for anyone who might have trouble. The porch was well used all weekend because the September weather was GORGEOUS and the light pouring in the windows just set the house off so nicely. We have a Victorian home ourselves so we were so excited to see what someone else's was like!
