Manistee is appropriately known as the Victorian Port City and this elegant Victorian home in the heart of Manistee is part of that rich history. The home was originally built for Robert R. and Harriet (Hattie) Blacker in 1892. Robert Blacker was a successful businessman in shingle production, lumber, railroads, banking, drugs, steamships and water works in the late 1800's. He also served in several political offices to include state legislature, Mayor of Manistee, and Secretary of State.

The home has had several updates, with the recent additions of all stainless-steel appliances, new lighting and new kitchen island. Many of the original hardwood floors have been refinished and the entire 4700 sqft. home has been refreshed. You'll truly appreciate all the work that has been done to modernize the home while keeping that Victorian charm. Much of the furniture has been purchased new in 2016 and 2017.

AMENITIES INCLUDE: air conditioning, dishwasher, fire pit, laundry, ping pong table, board games, and gas fireplace. WIFI, and Smart TV access included.

The kitchen is fully stocked for everyday meal prep. Dishes, pots and pans, silverware, glass, etc. dishwasher, and a drip coffee maker is available for guest use.
