About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

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. You could enjoy your stay without ever driving your car!

Our home also features a spacious fenced back yard, front porch, and enclosed rear porch, 1 and 1/2 bath with claw-foot tub, vaulted ceilings and lots of natural light. We are across the street from basketball courts and a playground (appropriate for upper elementary) and Kaufman auditorium.

A great place to to stay if you are getting married in MQT, visiting NMU, attending to business at Marquette General Hospital, biking, hiking, sailing, or just enjoying all of the spectacular beaches, waterfalls and trails that begin within the Marquette city limits. Marquette plays host to countless events throughout the year and our home offers a convenient and relaxing getaway.

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 Upper Peninsula Michigan

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.

Great Weekend in Marquette

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at this home for the Noquemanon ski race and it was great. Beautiful home, plenty of room, nicely appointed, friendly owners, and a great location in close proximity to everything we wanted and needed for the weekend. Thanks!!

A very comfortable home with character

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this home for our son's graduation from NMU. We had 3 families together and we had plenty of space. The big dining table was perfect for meals, the kitchen was very adequate. The living rooms were comfortable for all of us. The beds were comfortable and the two grandkids loved their own bedroom. It was great to be able to let the dogs out in the fenced yard. I would say the only drawback was no bathroom on the main floor and even though the tub was perfect for the old Victorian house a little difficult to get in and out of. The best thing about this house was the proximity to town even in winter. Thank you for this lovely home and the little Christmas decoration. It made a perfect background for our Christmas card!

Amazing location, perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home for Christmas. Everything was perfect. The house was gorgeous, clean, and exceptionally well equipped. Property management was immediately available (for just a basic question :) and the owner was very responsive to questions. We would definitely stay here again and would DEFINITELY recommend!! Marquette is my childhood home and it was wonderful having a place like this to stay for our visit. Thank you!!!

A beautiful home in MQT

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (and our two dogs) just loved staying here. We love the character of the home, the large back yard and the proximity to all of our MQT favorites. We'll definitely stay again!

Lovely Victorian home

  • 4 of 5

*PROS*

VERY clean

Excellent, central location with an elementary school across the street with a park for kids

Well appointed, with everything you need

Quick communication from the owner

Quick turn around time for deposit return

Great reading materials, and a few toys

Nice backyard with a tree rope swing!!!

*CONS*

No dishwasher (i honestly forgot to check this, and was disappointed when i got there, but totally my fault!)

You have to walk stairs to use the bathroom

Older (but clean!) mattresses...

I would recommend to anyone, with those points in mind. :-) My family had a great stay at this home. It is very spacious. My children LOVED it-- especially the swing and the park!!!
