Please note pricing is based on the number of guests and is explained at the end of this description and under rates.
Come enjoy Michigan at its finest on all sports and trophy fishing Murray Lake in our new million dollar home. Close to downtown Grand Rapids, MI, 30 minutes from the airport, and about an hour to Lake Michigan, this home is the perfect location for visitors attending weddings, family reunions, or to just kick back and enjoy life.
We just finished renovating our home. Everything is new and up to date. The kitchen is fully stocked and has all the features of a gourmet chef's dreams. Dishes, appliances, glasses are plenty and high end. In addition to the 8 seating dining table, there are more tables that can extend your seating. The fireplace has an original barn beam mantel and copper chimney. There are plenty of sitting/conversation areas throughout the home. And for the men and kids, there is a man cave with a large screen TV.
Per night pricing starts at $800 (for 2 guests) and goes up to $1,300 (12 guests). There is no charge for children under 1 year. In addition there is cleaning fee of $250 and returnable damage deposit of $500. To illustrate the pricing for example, if you are a group of 8, your price would be 6 guests times $50 per night plus the $800 per night for 2 guests = $1,100 per night rate. VRBO calculates this in the "quote" section. Sheets & towels, internet, cable TV, etc. are all included.
There are paddle boards and kayaks at no additional charge. If you would like to rent the speed boat (with tubes and skis), or Bennington Pontoon, each boat rents for $250 per day plus $1,000 damage deposit, plus gas.
For groups we can provide either excellent catering or a personal chef, baby sitters, life guards, or boat drivers. The lake is very clean and we have a fresh sandy beach steps from the home.
Nearby are great bike paths, zip line, Lake Michigan beaches, Grand Rapids breweries, local farm produce and ice cream, blue berry winery, and only 15 minutes to downtown Lowell, best ribs in Michigan or a quick 20 minutes to Grand Rapids.
***PLEASE NOTE: Absolutely no pets, bachelor/bachelorette parties, weddings, or events allowed. No exceptions. ***
We also own another home on the lake, 3 bedroom 3 bathroom home, sleeps 9 (see listing 730482) at $500 per night in case your group is larger and needs two homes.
This was the best stocked kitchen with upscale appliances and dishes galore. The dishes ranged from plastic to China.
The house is beautiful. Very roomy and had lots of stuff. The kids loved the floating dock and the fire pit. Very quiet neighborhood. Overall a great stay. Thanks
This house is beautiful, very clean and well kept. We spent 5 nights here and couldn't have been more pleased. The pictures don't do it justice. We loved the pontoon boat, the kayaks, paddleboards and there were plenty of games and activities at the house to keep us all busy. We had 7 adults and my twin grandchildren and everyone enjoyed their time spent here. Not only were there more than enough bedrooms but everyone has their own bathroom and the rooms were large. The bathrooms were so professionally decorated they could have been in a magazine and every one was different. Sue Anne was a very gracious host and very accommodating. I would highly recommend this house.
A group of 9 - 11 of us, family and friends, stayed here over the week of 4th of July. We did not want to leave! The home has an amazing kitchen, several bedrooms, several bathrooms and is beautifully decorated. The owner was responsive and very helpful. We can't wait to go back!
My family (7 adults and 2 small children) came to Grand Rapids for a wedding and rented the Murray Lake oasis for a long weekend. What a gorgeous home! The entire house was tastefully decorated, and fully equipped with everything we needed (and more!). I was so impressed with all the little details that made it a relaxing vacation retreat. Sue Anne was just lovely, and extremely responsive and accessible both before and during our stay. We wished we could have stayed longer to take full advantage of all the amenities the house offered. I'd definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a luxury lakeside vacation rental. Thank you, Sue Anne!
We stayed here with a total of six adults and 8 kids. The house is beautiful and perfect for multiple families or one large family, although I think we used every last bed and one more kid or adult would not have had a place to sleep. We rented the speed boat, and our kids all enjoyed tubing, wakeboarding and cruising the lake. There were some minor electrical and plumbing issues, but the owner was very attentive to trying to help us solve them. She was easily accessible our entire stay to answer questions. All in all, a perfect spot for a reunion with friends or family!
Coming from Iowa, Illinois and Michigan, all 12 of us met at the house on Murray Lake. The pictures on the site do not do this justice. The home is decorated so beautifully, and welcoming. We definitely took advantage of the outside. Morning coffee on the upper deck and then lunch on the patios with the fan. The paddle boards and kayaks did not get much rest. And the fish! We spent mornings and evenings out on the lake fishing, but really didn't even need to leave the pier to get a catch. Sue Ann was beyond gracious and was very responsive with any question we had. As we were sadly packing up, everyone in the family was saying that this is definitely a place they would come back to.
Our family and friends enjoyed the freshness and beautifully decorated retreat. We had ample space and fun cooking in the gourmet kitchen. They even had a Wolfe double oven. Of course perfect weather enhanced our stay. The lake was not overly busy and my husband loved the fishing. We truly did not want to leave.
