You can walk to the 18 hole Morrison Lake Golf Club at the end of the private drive, cast a line off the dock for bass and bluegills or enjoy water skiing on this 320 acre lake with an island. Only 25 minutes by expressway to the city of Grand Rapids and an international airport.
This home boasts hardwood floors downstairs and a heated whirlpool upstairs overlooking the lake. The large 2nd floor master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and sliding doors to a balcony.

I grew up spending my weekends at my grandfather's cottage on a inland Michigan lake near Grand Rapids. Fishing, boating, swimming, horseshoes and barbecuing were the order of the day. I always had a great time! I treated my friends, made new ones and got to know my cousins. Water and sun were the basic ingredients. I bought a lakefront home to pass along the legacy of good times begun by my grandfather and to share it with others as well.
Owner purchased this House in 1989
What makes this House unique
Convenience, beauty and fun in the sun are a few of the benefits of this lakefront home. An all-sports lake with a public golf course and bass tournament quality fishing only 25 minutes by expressway to a major city provides guests with plenty of options. You need only bring your swimsuit and golf clubs because a fishing boat, paddle boat, diving raft and linens are all provided. A boat lift is available for open bow speedboats under 20 feet. In winter, returning to the wood burning fireplace and heated whirlpool overlooking the lake after x-country skiing or ice fishing makes for a perfect day.

Everything we could have dreamed of and more!
My husband and I rented out the Lake House for our wedding ceremony and for our family getaway week. We had a few family members staying for the week and a larger number of guests coming for the ceremony. It was by far one of the best experiences we could have ever had.
The owners were friendly and absolutely accommodating. The property was clean and organized. They answered all of our questions promptly and their listing of amenities was spot on - not to mention a few other amazing aspects of the house that you would have to really see to believe. To be honest we had a hotel room at the Amway Grand the night of the wedding and were happy to be "home" to the Lake House the next day because it was so much more comfortable and relaxing.
The master bedroom, bathroom and living room windows overlooking the lake gave us a breathtaking view every morning of the sunrise, blue herons, and that calm and tranquil mist over the water. Picture perfect. The afternoons were sun filled with swimming, boating, grilling, and games. Our evenings concluded with starlit views from the dock and smore's and wine with friends around the fire pit.
We would recommend this property to any family gathering - especially an intimate wedding ceremony. We were married between the two large trees on the water and we were able to very comfortably fit 65+ chairs for our ceremony guests in the yard with plenty of room. This was the perfect setting for it. We can't wait to book for future anniversaries!
We returned to Lake Morrison this summer after a 5 year absence. Five years ago the grand kids were 2,3,4,5 and now 7,8,9,10. I wondered if it would be as good a fit. No need to worry - it was perfect. It is a house for all ages to enjoy. The owners are wonderful and right there if you need anything. They are also very generous in allowing us the use of their boats, toys, fishing gear, etc. It was a wonderful week and now all i hear from the grand kids is "when can we go back to the lake?"
We look forward to your return!
Had a great experience on Morrison Lake. The owner took us on a tour of the home when we arrived. The home had plenty of room for the four of us and also was great for entertaining large groups for dinner! The lake had a sand bottom and was shallow for the kids to swim in. We had fun on the paddleboat and went fishing on the motor boat a few times. Overall great experience and we would love to do it again!
house on a nice lake
Our 3-generation vacation went very well. There was something for everyone to do, and it is close to the airport. Kids enjoyed swimming and the raft, plus water skiing. The house had plenty of space for all of us, as did the yard. Owners were very responsive to our needs and questions. We especially appreciated the book of directions for things in the cottage and the area, and the tour of the house given by the owner. We will be back.
The house was great! Had everything you could ever need. Owner greeted us and showed us around and was very accessible by phone for questions. Neighbors friendly. Watched the sun come up over the lake every morning. Grandkids had fun in the water; sandy bottom, shallow at shore. Had family dinner for 15 one evening, plenty of room. Made two runs to airport in Grand Rapids at rush hour. Short trip, very little traffic. Don’t miss Flat River Grill in Lowell. Free concert from the patio on the river. Check schedule. Would love to come back again!
Great cottage and wonderful hosts!
This cottage was a great place for our extended family to stay. A short drive from Grand Rapids made it convenient for everyone. The owners are so great-gave us a wonderful orientation to everything and even helped us carry our luggage in from the car! Lake is lovely, cottage is incredibly clean and neat. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need. Even though it rained a couple of days, there were activities in the cottage to keep everyone happy. Thanks so much for a great week!
Portable three person fishing shanty and several x-country skis provided. Sandbox near water for children. Model aviation park and exotic petting zoo nearby. Third-party pontoon rental available.
