Located on the southwest corner of McLaren Greater Lansing's Greenlawn Campus, the McRee Guest House offers convenient, clean, comfortable and secure lodging for out-of-town relatives/support person of McLaren Greater Lansing patients.  The McRee Guest House provides temporary lodging, and is not intended to serve as a long term or permanent residence. 

Who May Stay? 

Any out-of-town relative of a patient hospitalized at McLaren Greater Lansing or McLaren Orthopedic Hospital.  Special arrangements may also be made for patients to stay at the McRee Guest House, however, patients must have a competent support person or caregiver.  Guests must check in between the hours of 9 am and 9 pm.   Children are allowed, but must be supervised by a competent adult at all times.  Pets are not allowed to stay at the House.  Smoking (including e-cigarettes), alcohol  and firearms are not allowed in any area of the House, or on the grounds.

What is the Cost?

There is a fee of $40 per room, per night.  Each guest must prepay for their stay.   Payment methods are cash, debit or credit card.  This fee doesn't cover the full cost of a night's stay, but helps toward operational expenses. Additional donations are very welcome and much appreciated. Guests must provide a state, government or military issued photo ID, along with a current mailing address, and telephone number.

Here's How We Can Help?

If you are an out-of-town adult relative or support person for a McLaren Greater Lansing patient, you may stay at the McRee House.  Reservations may be made by calling 517-975-6310, between the hours of 9 am and 9 pm.  We limit the use of the McRee Guest House to no more than 4 family members per patient, and no more than 2 rooms per family.  Based on room availability/size, the maximum occupancy cannot exceed 3 guests.  Guests may stay as long as the patient is hospitalized at McLaren Greater Lansing, up to a maximum of 14 days. Other arrangements may be possible depending on circumstances and the discretion of the Director.  We ask that you be respectful of other guests and quiet time is from 9 pm -- 9 am.  We recognize this is a difficult time for our guests and appreciate your effort to maintain the loving, caring atmosphere of the McRee Guest House.
