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.

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.

About Sue Anne Campbell

I love this lake. My grandfather built a cottage in the early 1900's. We were looking for a quest house for out of town family and friends attending my daughter's wedding and landed on this property a year ago.

Sue Anne Campbell purchased this House in 2016

Why Sue Anne Campbell chose Grattan

I would choose this home because of its location to Grand Rapids, the privacy and beautiful sandy beach, and that fact that every thing is new in the home. There is plenty of space for large groups and the kitchen contains more than what you would ever use.

What makes this House unique

My favorite place is sipping on coffee on my rocking chair in the porch and having a glass of wine on the deck at sunset. This lake is 320 acres in size. It is approximately 64 feet deep at its deepest point. Anglers can expect to catch a variety of fish including Largemouth Bass, Muskellunge (Muskie), Northern Pike and Panfish.

                                                          Beautifully appointed vacation lake house

                                                          Nina C.

                                                          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!

                                                          Absolutely stunning house perfect for large groups

                                                          Alison S.

                                                          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!

                                                          Pictures do not do it Justice!

                                                          Gayle C.

                                                          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.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          I'm so happy you all enjoyed your stay. Most of my enjoyment comes from the pleasure my guests have during their stay.

                                                          - Sue Anne

                                                          We didn't want to leave!

                                                          Sue Anne C.

                                                          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.

                                                          Lowell, MI, USA

                                                          If cooking is not your description of vacation, may I suggest the following: Flat River Grill in Lowell - great food, entrees are from $15 - $30 Main Street BBQ in Lowell - I haven't eaten there yet, but have heard great things about their food. Nona's in Ada - cozy atmosphere, great service and great food. Expect to pay $25 and up per person. Honey Creek Inn - really close on 5 Mile Road. They have a reputation for having the best burgers. Bostwick Inn - about 15 minutes drive on Bostwick Lake. This is a favorite
