I think I want to come to Pete's, what do I do next?
The first step to staying at Pete's Place is to give us a call. You can call us anytime ( we really mean anytime!) at 231-922-4800. Someone will talk to you and answer any questions you may have.
It is best to call first, because someone may not be at Pete's Place (we might be taking someone to school, work, etc). If you come to Pete's and no one is there, there is a call box inside the front door.
