Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 1 1/2 Bath, front screened in porch, all in a central location.

Morgan Street Homestead

Located in the heart of Marquette. The home is close to Northern Michigan University, Marquette General Hospital, various events and activities. Across the street is Harlow Park with assorted playground equipment, large open area and a basketball court. Across from the park is the Marquette Food Co-op which will accommodate your grocery and deli needs.

The home is within walking distance to many activities and attractions. Mattson Park is located on Lake Superior, east of the home. Most festivals and events take place at Mattson Park, it’s much easier to walk from the house than to try to find parking at an event. Also within walking distance are various restaurants and bars.

Marquette is well known for their hiking and bike paths, access to the bike path is just south of the home across Washington Street.

Marquette has a 'Fit Strip' which is just north of the house. This includes a cross country ski trail, no need to drive, just grab your skis and walk one block north.

The home has three bedrooms, one and one-half bath, remodeled in 2012. Included in the remodel was the kitchen, appliances, insulation, painting, refinished hardwood floors, tile bathrooms, installed an additional half bath with a washer and dryer.

The front of the home has a beautiful large screened in porch along with an outdoor porch that faces Harlow Park. Great place to enjoy your morning coffee, relax in the evenings after a full day enjoying the Upper Peninsula. To the north of the home is a small one bedroom apartment.

Bedroom #1 = Queen Size Bed

Bedroom #2 = Full Size Bed

Bedroom #3 = Bunk Bed (full on bottom and single on top)

Bathroom #1 = Full bath-tub with shower combo

Bathroom #2 = half bath

Washer and Dryer are available, located in the half bath.

We also have a additional VRBO 1 bedroom rental, It's located north of this unit and attached by a separate hallway. It was completely renovated as of July 2015, the VRBO number is 721606. It's a great unit by itself and would work out well if you have additional family or friends who would like to have their own space but still be close by.

About Barb O'Neill

We are Marquette natives we lived away while my husband was in the US Navy during the Vietnam Era, stationed on the USS Kitty Hawk. My husband is a retired carpenter and I retired from the City of Marquette along with owning my own business (Embroidery Wearhouse.) We are the proud parents of three daughters and two granddaughters. Our plan is to travel to Europe and here in the US.

Barb O'Neill purchased this house in 1989

Why Barb O'Neill chose Upper Peninsula Michigan

This home previously belonged to our grandparents. The home has been in the family since 1923. We purchased it in 1989 and lived in it while we built our house. Central location is convenient yet offers privacy within the City of Marquette. We generally walk to restaurants, bars, the Food Co-op, Lake Superior and Mattson Park. Mattson Park is where most of the festivals are held, it's easier to walk from the house then try to find a parking spot. Park Cemetery is located just to the north of the home, access is available straight up the hill, past the American Legion. This is a cemetery but it's also a park. Beautiful trees, ponds, ski trail and monuments, it's a peaceful place to take a walk, or a bike ride.

What makes this house unique

The home is close to activities but yet off the path so you can enjoy your privacy and quiet time and be active should you so desire. Love the history of the home, original hardwood floors and rounded archways and the front screen porch are my favorite place to enjoy a cup of coffee and the view.

A SUPER HOUSE IN MARQUETTE

  • 5 of 5

If you plan to spend some time in Marquette, this is the place if you like a big house on a quiet street within easy walking distance of downtown. My wife and I have stayed here in each of the last two years. We will be back. Great big tables, an outstanding kitchen. Just so comfortable. Barb is a great host!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect! It's an updated older home and they did an amazing job. We were so impressed with the inside (the outside pictures online do not do it justice). The location was great for us, as we like to walk to town. It is near a busy street (Washington), but it was very quiet, and we were there during NMU's homecoming.

Only thing I would suggest to future renters: bring your own pillow if your picky about pillows, the ones provided are stiff.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. Pillows are such a personal choice that I found it difficult to choose which type most people would like. After your review I added feather pillows to add to the mix. We now have firm, feather and squishy pillows, something for just about everyone. We'll do our best to provide the best experience possible. Thank you, hope to see you on your next trip to Marquette. Barb & Bob

Clean, well maintained, well stocked. Great view across from the park, easy walk downtown. The inclosed porch is an extra bonus and beds are comfortable. Thank you for a great stay.

Family friendly

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time using a rental home rather than a hotel. For this trip there were four adults and my two-year-old grandson. This house had a park directly across the street which made it very convenient for my grandson. The house was very accommodating for our family, I have everything that we would have our own home we feel very welcome and like we were at home. I Will use this service instead of going to a hotel for my future travel needs, there is no reason to ever use a hotel again!

Convenient central location. Within walking distance to many activities, across the street is beautiful Harlow Park with playground equipment and a basketball court. Across from the park is the Marquette Food Co-op for all of your grocery needs! Lake Superior and Mattson Park (festivals are held here) and all it has to offer is also within walking distance.

Morgan Street units (we have two VRBO's on Morgan St.) are one of very few rentals where you don't necessarily require a vehicle. The home is within walking distance to groceries, downtown, shopping, restaurants and Lake Superior.

Marquette is known for their great biking & hiking trails, a bike path to connect is across the street, south of the house. And, you can store your bikes in the lawn shed!
