We're right in the city, so everything you need is nearby. We live in a quiet neighborhood with pleasant evening breezes. Suggested Local Attractions:Where to begin? We're two doors from the city path bike trail which connects to many other bike trails. Marquette has history, scenery, shopping, beaches... hiking, mountain biking, craft beer, numerous festivals and happenings all the time. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, berry picking, jumping off Black Rocks into Lake Superior, grabbing a pasty... you're limited only by your imagination :-)

host Profile

Hosted By Steinelmans

Age:

55-65

Middle-Agers with Wanderlust! Details: We're two fifty-something professionals (wanna-be retirees, if the truth be known). We enjoy good food, good company, outdoors pursuits, and craft beer :) We have one recently-fledged adult child, but on the road it's just us two plus our small dog (we'll always be cool enough for her). He's in the building industry, she gets bored easily and is still figuring out what to be when she grows up... Note: Although our "travel preferences" indicate generator use, we're fine with not using the generator if your location doesn't allow it. Home Town: We're confirmed cheeseheads - she's from southern Wisconsin and he is from central Wisconsin. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We don't have specific ones to list here - they can be sort of random especially out west with public lands - but we are excited to be part of Boondockers Welcome! We hope to meet some great people and make some great memories through this service. Skills or Expertise to Share: He is knowledgeable about bicycles and she's good with computers and technology.

    The hosts were friendly and very accommodating for our stay. The parking was easy and level. The neighborhood was quiet with a bike/hike path that was convenient to use. We had a great stay at Gitche Gumee Shores!

    We really enjoyed our stay and it was the perfect location for exploring the many amazing gems of Marquette! We didn’t get to meet the hosts but had great communication beforehand and during our stay, and they made us feel like friends. We’d definitely stay again!
