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.

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.

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!

Very comfortable. Our sons and their families were glad we all stayed here instead of a hotel. Other family at the hotel wished they had done the same. Lots of room. Will book again if in the Marquette area.
