Reviews for this vacation home rental in Marquette, Michigan
Awesome romantic get away
March 11, 2015
We had a great get away, the place is like a retreat to refrech your soul from working and hectic city life in San Francisco. We would love to come back again and highly recommend

This place is great from the amenities to the location and views. We had six adults and a yellow lab. Everyone enjoyed the stay. All we brought was our food. Everything else we needed was there. We will be coming back during the summer to enjoy the Sand River and the big lake they call Gitche Gumee.

Blizzard and Fun!
February 19, 2015
We went up to see the U.P. 200 Dog Sled races. Saw the start in Marquette ~ exciting and fun to see. Went back to the house and got to see the mushers and their teams cross the very road the house was on. Very cool to see! The house worked out great as we had a blizzard the next day which was awesome. With pool table, dart board and sauna we managed to stay sane and really enjoyed our time there. Living area and bedrooms were comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked and we made some great meals. Loved the fireplace in the dining room/kitchen, very cozy during the blizzard! Would definitely rent again. I'd loved to see the yard and river in the summer. The winter view was amazing and enjoy by all.

Great time with Friends.

A few friends got together and we decided to spend a wknd. This was a great choice, we had many things to do like swim in the freshest body of water in the world. Hiking thru beautiful woods. Canoeing on river. Great evenings watching the moon and stars from the Beautiful deck. We would go back again, if we were able to.
Nice Vacation Spot!
November 8, 2014
Comfortable and cozy rooms, the entire ambience was amazing. We felt right at home! The management was great; warm and welcoming. There were enough activities to keep all the children and adults entertained for the entire week of our visit. The riverfront views were spectacular! The jacuzzi tub in the master suite is the best!
Idyllic UP vacation
November 3, 2014
We really enjoyed our week long stay at the River Retreat. The weather was super and we were able to hang out by the water and ride bicycles during the day. Evening brought amazing stars and bonfires outside, then a relaxing sauna and game of pool by the bar inside. The real highlight was the view in the morning with a cup of coffee. Marquette was close enough to enjoy some shopping and restaurants like the Sweet Water Cafe. We took the bicycles on the trail by the lake out to Presque Isle and back through town. We'd like to go back in the winter for a ski vacation. What a beautiful place to 'reset' and take a break.

Thought it would be nice to get away for the week and go see fall color up in UP. A little early for all the tree to have turned but we did see some fall color. Did some rock climbing/hiking by way of exploring. Very close to the lake. The Place was big enough. We had 2 bedrooms not be used. We would definitely be seeing about coming back next year.

Enjoyed our few days at Welch's Riverview Retreat. House is a little dated, but comfortable. Our only complaint would be the water pressure. The property manager stopped by on our 3rd day, and when I informed him of the water pressure issue, he quickly changed the filter and that seemed to correct the problem. So if you stay here, and the water pressure is not good when you first arrive, let them know. We lived with the issue for 3 days thinking that was normal. Also, would be nice if they provided internet access. Cell phone reception is almost non-existant. My partner had no reception at all with AT&T. I have Verizon, and had limited reception. Otherwise, we enjoyed our time there.

We had a wonderful family time in this house ~ the house was very comfortable and convenient. When the weather warmed up the mosquitos did too! But once the weather cooled they were less invasive. The horseshoe pit, the volleyball court and the canoe were fantastically fun! The view was spectacular. Thank you for making our vacation so enjoyable and comfortable!
What a Fantastic Experience!!!!
June 25, 2014
My stay here was way too short while spending just a couple of days here visiting friends in Marquette. The weather turned out to be fantastic and the view of the Sand River and Lake Superior exceeded all of my expectations. The house was nicely furnished and very comfortable. The bar, rec room, and sauna downstairs were a real treat and having the use of a canoe was an added bonus. It was wonderful paddling on the Sand River. The view from the upstairs master bedroom was spectacular with a great jacuzzi tub to relax in while taking in the lake view. My whole experience here exceeded my expectations and hope to return soon for a longer stay.
