About Dena McMurray
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

Beautiful lake home
Amazing home with everything you need to enjoy a stress free weekend. The place was more than big enough to accommodate 10 people with more room to spare. One shower was under renovation so that was a little bit of an inconvenience but once that’s done this place is perfect for any large trips.
They also provided so many toys for both kids and adults to use on the lake and made the experience even better.
Would recommend this home to everyone and I hope to rent it again.
I was very disappointed and embarrassed about renting this property because there was only one working shower and I had invited several guests to stay with us while they attended our son's wedding in the area. The home owners never let us know that the second shower was being remodeled and did not give us a discount for our stay. The lack of communication regarding this and not letting us know where to find the key to the property was very frustrating. I have emailed and called both phone numbers on the contract and the rental owner's have not replied to either. The property is clean and nice but the one working shower and lack of communication from the rental owners brought our review down to two stars.
The water was the clearest water we've ever seen. The house...immaculate! Thank you!
We had a great time. We had 3 families staying at this wonderful cottage. The beach was wonderful, the water was clear and the sun was shining. The McMurray's provided tons of water toys, sports balls, inside games and children books. The house was immaculate and had all the comforts from home. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!!
An amazing time.
We had an amazing time. The house was clean and comfortable. And the amount of toys the kids had to use in the water was astonishing. My husband and I were able to relax and watch and enjoy our family. We are hoping to make this a family tradition for us. Already planning for next year. Thank you Dena and Mark for a wonderful vacation. The Dales.
So happy you had an amazing week! We thank you for your kind words and look forward to your return visit!
Great Avalon Lakehouse!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house comfortably accommodated our group of 8.
It was exactly as advertised.
We are very familiar with the lake, having once owned (a much) smaller cottage for years.
The house had everything we needed, from comfortable beds, a stocked kitchen, water toys, beach towels, wifi, etc...
We will definitely will return!

So happy you had a nice stay and we look forward to your return in the future. Thank you!
