|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
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.
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.

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.
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!!!
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!!!
A beautiful home with great space for socializing, sharing meals, and exploring downtown. My friends and I who met over 20 years ago during our freshman year at NMU (and had lost touch until the dawn of Facebook) had an incredible time laughing, cooking, eating, and exploring with this as our home base. Lots of unique bedrooms to go around. Home is warm and inviting. Skip the hotels and rent this home!
This house was perfect. It had old Victorian charm in the heart of Marquette, MI. It is walking distance to downtown and many other attractions in Marquette. I would absolutely recommend this place and will definitely stay again.
What a great place to stay in Marquette! Unique furnishings add to the ambience. Super comfortable and roomy for our group of 7. We enjoyed hosting a dinner for close friends of our NMU graduate--outdoor grill works perfectly and dining room offers plenty of seating. The house is located within walking distance of everything--the beach, downtown, restaurants/bars/shopping on Third St. We highly recommend! Restaurant recommendations: Vierlings (Whitefish chowder!) and Doncker's for breakfast or lunch.
This rental was the perfect location for a weekend visit to Marquette. The house was clean and inviting, and the neighborhood was quiet - yet within easy walking distance of downtown. We also really appreciated that this rental is dog-friendly - such places are not always easy to find. We would definitely consider renting again for future visits. Thanks!
We've stayed in this property a couple of times and it's always wonderful. The home is exactly as described and in a perfect location to experience Marquette. The owner is very responsive to requests and questions. We will be returning, hopefully soon.
