Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6

We are a small northwestern Lake Michigan port town. Our property is located approximately eight (8) blocks south of the downtown business district. The home is centrally located in a quiet neighborhood. Our town is steeped in history from the lumbering era and many of the Victorian homes have been restored to perfection. Our home has been completely remodeled and work was finished early August 2011. We feel this is a perfect place for family vacations and weekend getaways for anyone who enjoys being 'up north' -- near the lake and the great outdoors. We welcome fishermen, golfers, snowmobilers, skiers, hunters, and people who just plain like to relax!

Colleen's little house had everything you'd need for a vacation stay while making you feel right at home. Couldn't have found a better place to stay while in Manistee!

Colleen's Little House

  • 5 of 5

My father and I needed a two week stay in Manistee to lay my mother to rest at Manistee's beautiful Mount Carmel Cemetary. We could not have asked for a better place. Absolutely adorable, clean, with plenty of room. Colleen and Jon are the best! We visited lots of family during our stay who sometimes came over and also commetted how nice the place was. Quiet and peaceful surroundings, friendly neighbors, and for us, centrally located ! Downtown River Street was within walking distance! Both my father and I highly recommend this beautiful cottage for business and pleasure!!

Quiet neighborhood, close to everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Nice house with everything you could possibly need. Comfortable and quiet. Close to shopping and the beach. Dog friendly, large yard. Jon and Colleen came over on the first day to introduce themselves, but then gave us privacy for the rest of our visit, which was greatly appreciated. Would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

A ten minute walk and you will be in the historic business district of the Victorian Port City--Manistee. Enjoy the quaint shops along River Street and admire the architecture of the buildings in the downtown area. Take a stroll on the 'River Walk' accessible between the US-31 drawbridge and Lake Michigan. Plan a day or two at the beautiful Lake Michigan beaches in the area. If the lake is not appealing, try tubing, kayaking, or canoeing on the Manistee River. If fishing is your passion this area is the largest fishery in Michigan for salmon and steelhead. Many charter opportunities available by the 1/2 day or full day. River charters also available, If you prefer to golf there are 12+ beautiful courses within a 45 mile radius including Arcadia Bluffs (Golf Digest, #10 in US). Join Us for the National Forest Festival in July or the Christmas Sleighbell Weekend in December. Spend your time doing the things you love to do. The list is endless.
