About James and Colleen Clark
Jim is born and raised in Marquette, and Colleen's roots reach back to Marquette, even though she was raised in lower Michigan. They have been back in Marquette for 28 years, it is where they raised their family, in the home that Jim was raised in.
James and Colleen Clark purchased this Bungalow in 2014
Why James and Colleen Clark chose Marquette
We had had our eye on this property since we purchased the home we live in (right next door), in 2005. The 300 foot deep, wooded lot is a beautiful natural setting, within the city limits! Sweet Superior Retreat came to be because that is exactly what it is. It's a charming, peaceful little place, and the more that we worked on updating this special place we'd been watching (and caretaking) for 9 years, the more special it became to us.
What makes this Bungalow unique
500 feet from the ever changing Lake Superior & it's beautiful beaches; miles of walking/biking paths; 4 nearby parks & playgrounds; ability to walk or bike to historic downtown Marquette and Third Street's shops, bars and restaurants.

A Perfect Location to Experience Marquette’s Beauty
This is the perfect place for one or two people. It’s two blocks to beautiful Lake Superior and an easy walk to McCarty’s Cove, Mattson Harbor, Picnic Rocks, or Washington Street shops. There is easy access to Presque Isle and beautiful sunsets. The house is charming and clean with a lovely back yard for enjoying am coffee or pm lemonade.
Glad you enjoyed your time. Thanks for choosing our home for your Marquette visit again!
Charming little getaway
This property is absolutely perfect for a weekend of exploring in Marquette. The house was spotless and had so much character and charm. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood and is very close to Lake Superior and downtown Marquette. I would highly recommend this property and will definitely stay there again. Beautiful framed photos and lots of personal touches. Loved it!
A Great Little Place
Had a great stay at this charming little house. The location is perfect. Close to the beach and walking/biking trail as well as less than a mile from lots of dining options, breweries, coffee shops, parks and much more.
The house itself was very clean and well kept.The owners definitely do a good job of maintaining this house. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils and cooking equipment.
I would definitely recommend this house.
This home is clean, comfortable, and fantastic. Perfect example of a home away from home.
Colleen’s home is absolutely fantastic. The house is clean, comfortable, and the perfect size for two people. The beach and downtown is in walking distance. I would definitely recommend bringing a bike as I would have loved to bike around town and the city. I can’t wait to come back. :)
Everything was terrific. Worked out as we hoped and it was very kind to provide clean linens mid-week. Makes a Marquette vacation complete
It was amazing!
The perfect place to stay in Marquette, especially if you love the beach, a bike Path and near downtown with great restaurant!
Glad you guys enjoyed your stay. I saw you getting in one last walk this morning as I left for work. 😉�
See you next year!
