We are the owners of this beautiful Lake Avalon home. Pictured are our 4 beautiful children ready to tube around the lake. We grew up in Hillman and I had the privilege of growing up on the other side of the lake. I have always loved this lake, but didn't realize how special and rare a lake like this was until we moved away from the area. We spent many years in Berkley, MI and currently reside in Clarkston, MI. On the weeks that we do not have the opportunity to use our lake home, we are renting it to others so they may too experience this amazing lake and create life-long memories at this truly special place!
Dena McMurray purchased this house in 2012
We feel so at home at the cottage! It has everything one could possibly need for a great vacation. It is clean as can be and the view from the front is spectacular. This is the place to go to get away from it all!
The house was perfect for our families and kids. We did not need to bring a thing to keep the kids busy all week (ages 2-9). Plenty of toys, fishing gear, boats to enjoy the lake. The house was large, in great shape and very clean. The owners were great to work with. Lake Avalon was better than promised. The water is the clearest I have seen in Michigan. Great pace to get away with the family.
Nice lake house on a beautiful lake. We enjoyed a fall-color weekend in the Hillman area. The McMurrays (the owners) worked well with us. Recommend this house for a stay in any season.
From the moment we walked through the door, we loved this home; it is exactly as shown in the pictures. The house was clean and well equipped, and the beds were comfortable. The owners thought of everything to make this home a perfect place for a family vacation. There is even a game / movie room for the kids. Paying through Homeaway was a breeze and the owner's made everything go smoothly. We loved kayaking the crystal-clear water of Lake Avalon, the bird watching, and the evening campfires. We would definitely recommend this home to friends and family. Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing vacation.
Our family of 5 absolutely loved our stay at the McMurray's vacation home! The home was beautiful. It was extremely clean, comfortable, and well thought out. The views of Lake Avalon are amazing. We are IN LOVE with the lake! The crystal clear water with a sandy bottom provided endless hours of entertainment for our family. We especially loved the glass kayak and canoe that were provided with the rental as well as the numerous floats, and water/sand toys! Our family loved having bonfires right out on the lake under a billion stars every night (thanks for the smores care pack!). We certainly did not want to go home! We would love to visit the McMurray's home again and we look forward to creating more beautiful vacation memories on Lake Avalon!!
The D'Agostini Family
WOW!! My family and I recently had the opportunity to spend a week at this beautiful home on gorgeous Lake Avalon. The lake is as clear and beautiful as any, and the views from this homes deck and bay windows are spectacular. This home allows for a very relaxing and comfortable environment with plenty of toys, a floating foam dock to lay on or dive from, fishing gear and recreational boats for all ages.
The home was very spacious as we shared it with another family of 4 (8 total) and had plenty of space for all activities. Dining room table made for a great family game space at night with a large bay window to look out at the lake.
Every night we were able to have family campfires overlooking the moonlit lake and take in the fresh northern air. Both families were looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay and Lake Avalon is definately the place for that. This home was extremely clean and the Master Bedroom had a very comfortable King bed. All of the children (ages 9-15) had their own beds and all had a blast on the lake. Clear bottom Kayak was a huge hit!
The owners were very thoughtful and left us a cute care package of smores for the family. I would suggest this to any family or couple that wants to escape the city and enjoy the peace and quiet of Northern MI.
