Beauty and serenity surround the residents of King Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. A dream of a loving place to care for the elderly of the Town of Houghton Lake became a reality as the King family orchestrated local tradesmen, artisans and contractors. Each person came forth with determination and solidarity. Bringing together creative ideas and hard work, they created a community for which they would all be proud. This dream lives on in our staff members at King, and this community has flourished in a quality culture.
King Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, a 2010 National Award Winner, is in a convenient and quiet setting overlooking Houghton Lake. The area is a destination for outdoor enthusiasts, but it is also rich in arts, culture and theatre. Activities and events within our community and around the town are scheduled based on our residents’ interests and hobbies.
