About Nikki, Mary Rose or Rose Marie

I grew up in a different part of town and spent many fun days on the beach, swimming with friends and fishing for perch from the pier. I moved away but returned often to visit family. When this house came on the market, it was a dream come true and we will share it with you. Hope you will enjoy and care for it as much as we do. Please be respectful with your language and music as sound travels easily outside. Thank you. This is a non-smoking property.

Why Nikki, Mary Rose or Rose Marie chose Michigan

This home is set up as a home away from home to enjoy the beach, picnic area, tennis courts, basketball court, pier fishing or just lounging on the spacious back deck. It is so convenient to the golf course with its bar and restaurant, you don't need a car to enjoy yourself. Great area for walking/jogging/cycling in relative safety without too much traffic. House is on a cul-de-sac.

What makes this house unique

Lovely breezes on warm days from this slightly elevated area that also gives a good view of what is happening nearby. The covered front porch gives an area out of the wind and rain if needed. There is a laundry area in the lower level with an extra refrigerator and microwave.

Card table and 4 chairs in the garage.

Great family house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic grown-up cousins vacation + two kids and a dog. The house layout is spacious and despite having 13 people, we never felt crowded. The house is clean and well stocked. The kitchen has all of the necessary cooking items and a great grill; we definitely needed the extra fridge in the basement. We loved the porch and outside space. The house really is just a short walk to the beach and there are at least four play grounds within a five minute walk. We also took the river walk to downtown Manistee, which we all loved.

Wonderful spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this homey, comfortable home. There were 13 of us, 6 adults and 7 kids ages 2 to 13, and we fit comfortably, plenty of living space. And what a wonderful location within sight of beach, tennis courts, 3 playgrounds, and basketball courts nearby too. The house was stocked with lots of toys and games for the kids, and kitchen dishes and small

appliances aplenty. The management was helpful and friendly. We had a great time here!

Manistee is known for its fine Victorian architecture from the boom of logging the white pine forests in the county. Its fine, clean beaches are a draw from all over the country. The Ramsdell Theatre is a gem offering live theatre productions, creative arts exhibitions, live music and other art forms not to be missed. Across the street from the Ramsdell is the stately library worth visiting. Museums on River and 1st Streets tell of Manistee's logging history and development and are worth the time to visit. 2 blocks from the house, you can enjoy a stroll on the River Walk along the Manistee River passing marinas, restaurants and downtown shopping with an ice cream parlor and restaurant at the end.

The recently renovated downtown Vogue Theater has given a new look to the retail district and has all the latest films.

In July and August, Tuesday nights offer free jazz/blues concerts right at 1st St. Beach (you can hear it from the back deck) and Thursday nights offer more free music with 'Roots on the River' on Memorial Drive across Maple St. Bridge, downtown.

It's all about unsalted, 'Pure Lake Michigan' with white sand beaches, pierwalking or fishing and lovely sunsets over blue water. Get your daily or year long, all species fishing license at K-Mart on S. U S 31 or online. There is a Dog Park at the beach or run your dog along the water south of the public area but be sure to take bags for cleanup to keep it 'Pure Michigan'. There is a new area for dogs north of the 1st St pier. Just walk to the pier and turn right at the water. North Beach is dog friendly also. Check app for Manistee dog friendly beaches. Thanks.
