LAKEFRONT - BEAUTIFUL VIEWS OF THE LAKE !

Brooklyn House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-5)

A newly constructed beautiful home in Irish Hills/Brooklyn area of Southeastern Michigan. Located in a quiet neighborhood on Mirror Lake which is a private 90 acre lake. The accommodations are spacious and comfortable. Enjoy the sunrises/sunsets on the numerous decks and patios. Watch the raccoons climb the tree from the relaxing hot tub on the deck, overlooking the calm lake. Observe geese, swans, cranes, and blue herons daily as they feed down front in the shallows. If fishing is what you're interested in, Mirror Lake is a great fishing lake with many Blue Gills, Bass, and Northern Pike. After a good catch, cook them up on the open fire pit near the lake on one of the decks.

The home is centrally located to many other activities near by, cider mills, wineries, antique stores, hiking and bike trails, etc. Race fans and NASCAR fans, Michigan International Speedway is just down the road about 10 minutes. With the extremely close proximity to the track (MIS), it is simple to avoid the race traffic by traveling down one of the back roads leading directly to the home.

Be sure to ask about the pontoon rental.

And if you are a fiend for mojitos, enjoy picking your fresh mint along the lake and following our famous recipe for a few refreshing drinks, or experiment with your own for that perfect taste.

Enjoy any part of the mornings, days, evenings, in the relaxing hot tub to relieve you of your aches and pains. Come here and just relax from the everyday stress, big or small.

MIRROR LAKE IS MEMORIZING

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Brent for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home on Mirror Lake. The home is so spacious, modern, comfortable and well equipped. I personally loved the bathroom as the it was so nicely decorated with granite and tile (like most other parts of the place) and shower head was nice and tall with excellent pressure and warmth. My hubby enjoyed the lake immensely; it was fun to have a lake in which you can actually catch a nice assortment and variety of fish. The hot tub is fabulous and a fun addition. Have so many places you can sit and relax (patio, deckside, hot tub, etc.). Only thing I'd suggest it would be nice to have wraps such as aluminum, sandwich/storage bags, etc. This is the first time we had someone prepare the fire for us; loved this. Also, your assistance with the laundry was great. We're hoping to return next year. Oh, the cycling in the area is very nice; roads quiet and low traffic with nice shade too; love the rolling hills; after all, it is Irish Hills; loved it.

VERY RELAXING!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I wanted to get away for the weekend and relax and this house was perfect for that! We went in March so we could not utilize the lake, but the views were wonderful. No matter if you were on the patio, sitting in the hut tub or sitting on the couch you had a nice view of the water. The house was very clean and kept up nicely. We will definitely return!

JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED

  • 5 of 5
My Girlfriend and I wanted to get away for the weekend but didn't want to drive 4 hours up north to do it. This is house was very nice and clean. The pictures on the website match exactly what you see when you show up. Mary was very nice and friendly. She made us feel right at home and helped us get around the area to explore and and eat. If your looking to relax this is the place to do it. We definitely would like to return to this spot again.

GREAT GAT AWAY

  • 5 of 5
The property situated on a private lake is a great getaway. Upon arriving we were greeted by Brent and the rules and guidelines were laid down which were very much acceptable. What can I say, if you're looking for a relaxing, quiet place, this is it. While we were here we did and seen the following. We traveling into Jackson, MI and hit a few wineries. Chateau Aeronautique Winery, Sandhill Crane Vineyards, .Sleeping Bear Winery, Cherry Creek Winery were the ones we visited, Chateau Aeronautique Winery being our favorite. We had to purchase a new bicycle and the bike shop in Jackson really helped us out. We went to Brooklyn to do laundry and it was a nice town.
While staying at Brent and Mary's we used the paddle boat to fish. We dropped lines in the water and rowed about the lake, traveling east to west and north to south, "trolling" and were successful catching a walleye, a few small mouth bass and a black crappie. We had fresh fish three nights using the pots and pans provided on the grill, perfect! One morning I arose to see a doe eating lilly pads from the waters edge. One afternoon we found a duck using a nearby oak tree for its nest, how cool. We road our bikes about the roads and took in many good views.
This property is as described, it has all the needs for a quiet vacation. Very clean and comfortable. Granted there is no oven, but any good cook can make a great meal in the microwave and the grill with a side burner. The leather furniture was very inviting and the bedroom was very warm.
Both Mary and Brent are very down to earth and great hosts. Even though our vacation was more wet than dry, I would return again for a visit and vacation. I would be remiss not to mention that Mary makes a great Mojito. Just ask her to do some muddling.

CLEAN, FRIENDLY, AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
Lovely property with great owners! We came down for our anniversary weekend and the home was just right. Brent and Mary were extremely helpful and a pleasure to meet and hang out with. Mary's mojitos are second to none and perfect to enjoy on the deck overlooking the lake. Good restaurants within decent driving distance and the Cherry Creek Winery was an excellent day trip. I would recommend this home to anyone and hope to return soon.

PEACEFUL

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our time on Mirror lake. It was quiet and very peaceful. It was a great place to celebrate our daughters 4th birthday. Brent & Mary were very helpful with anything that came up. If you enjoy the water, rent the pontoon boat. It has plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy the lake. The house was clean and enjoyable. We would love to come back sometime!
