Retreat. Relax. Renew.
The story of The Morris Estate began with Ernest Melvin Morris, a local entrepreneur known for his visionary business skills and generous charitable contributions. He purchased parcels of land in Southwest Michigan along the St. Joseph River with a passion for reforestation. In the 1930s, Morris Farms was born. E.M. Morris and his family continued to expand the farm and had many unique and historic structures built and placed on the 1,000 acre property. Over the years, the Morris Family and local residents enjoyed countless gatherings at Morris Farms.
In 2010 the current owners purchased The Chapel, Estate, Schoolhouse and surrounding land. Although the name has changed to The Morris Estate, the property's quaint atmosphere and rich heritage continue to be maintained through careful restorations. Recent renovations to The Estate have created a private suite within the main home for guests. This space will be perfect for bridal parties, family reunions, anniversaries, and Notre Dame game weekends. Nestled in the woods adjacent to the home, a small cabin, the Red Horse Inn, will be available for overnight stays.
