QUIET PARADISE: BEAUTIFUL LITTLE STONEY LAKE-FRONT HOME -- WINTER SEASON RATES

Brooklyn House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

A charming, beautiful home in the Irish Hills area of southeastern Michigan. The home is in an extremely quiet and private location on Little Stoney Lake. With beautiful architecture and an idyllic natural setting next to a state preserve area, this two story house is ideal for relaxing and rejuvenation for families and small groups. All rooms have stunning views of the lake or woods nearby and the landscaped lawn, gardens and deck lend themselves to observing herons, swans, goldfinches and other birds and wildlife and enjoying the changes that the seasons bring to the lake the adjacent woods. The beach and dock are steps from the deck and are perfect for swimming, fishing, or just taking in the sun on lazy summer days. Take the kayak or rowboat out on the lake to explore the shoreline or get friendly with turtles on the branches in the shallows. Or, step out the front door and discover the hiking trails that traverse the state reserve for long walks, finding morel mushrooms, and exploring the woods.

So quiet and secluded but still only a very short drive to all that the Irish Hills and the quaint village of Brooklyn have to offer: Hidden Lake Gardens; golf courses; Michigan International Speedway; wineries; shops and restaurants; and much, much more. Or take slightly longer trips to enjoy the many attractions offered by the nearby cities of Jackson, Adrian, and Ann Arbor.

Great place to stay over during University of Michigan or Michigan State University football game weekends. Easy access to both Ann Arbor and East Lansing.

House features:

Three bedrooms plus a loft room for reading or sleeping, two bathrooms, laundry facilities, gourmet kitchen with dish ware; charcoal grill, two car garage. Indoor and outdoor entertainment available: large lawn with gardens, 2 kayaks, row boat, fishing poles, fire pit; two televisions with cable, DVD player. Master bedroom has sliding glass door on to deck.

Additional beautiful home on a hill adjacent to the property is also potentially available for rent for large groups.

Available for rental on monthly basis between January 1 and April 30.

Peaceful Little Stoney Lake

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time at this Little Stoney Lake house. Our party consisted of 4 adults and 2 children.There is plenty to do, including swimming, kayaking, and fishing, either off the dock or from the row boat. There are life jackets for all boats and some inflatables to relax in the warm water. There is a charcoal grill as well as a fire pit for the evening camp fires. The inside of the house is well stocked with cooking itensils and linens. Plenty of interesting books to read too. The houses location at the end of the road right next to some state park land is great and ensures extra peace and quiet. The village of Brooklyn is about 6 miles away for groceries and other provisions. If you enjoy landscaping, be sure to visit the "Hidden Gardens" in Tipton, this arboretum is managed by MSU and very nice.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stumbled upon this hidden gem when we decided to get away for the holiday. The house was very clean, well stocked and had an overwhelming number of interesting books to entertain you on rainy days. Unique and interesting decor from travels. The lake is quiet and serene. My boyfriend and I were privately kayaking most of the time. The neighbors are very friendly. Will go back again!

Also, my uncle is handicapped - master was on ground floor so steps weren't necessary to get to it. Handicap railings on toilet too that we're nice.

Paradise for sure

  • 5 of 5
Serene, beautiful and the quietest lake I have ever experienced. We are privileged to know about this well hidden treasure. We have several adopted children with special needs, our youngest in a wheelchair and access was easy.

Quiet on the Water

  • 4 of 5
This lakeside home was perfect for a reunion of our family of four (with teens) and my older parents. It was cozy, but not cramped, with nice views of the no-wake lake from the house and small deck. My husband brought his lawn chair and spent each morning at the end of the dock watching the lake. As the last house on the lane and abutting the state parkland it felt secluded without being solitary. The kayaks and rowboat were in good order, and we were also allowed to use the paddleboat since the larger house on the hill was not rented during our week. The owners' collection of travel mementos, pottery, and a broad selection of books appealed to us very much. Although the coffee maker did not work, the contact person was eager to replace it with one that did. We could tell that the garden had once been well-loved and maintained, but it had not seen knowledgeable care for a while (we pulled some poison ivy from the front bed, just to be friendly to the next visitors.) The resident deerflies kindly stayed on the north side of the house, away from our sitting by the lake.
The property is only about 15 minutes from Hidden Lake Gardens in Tipton, a nice visit if you like flowers and trees. Their gift shop had a nice selection of souvenirs for everyone!
It's about a half hour from Allen, the self-proclaimed "Antiques Capital of Michigan," west along Rte 12.
On the way back from Allen, we had a picnic lunch and explored the unique and impressive sculpted cement trees and bridges of McCourtie Park, once the estate of the local cement baron in Somerset Center.
The lake lane was a pleasant evening walk. We did not try the bicycles in the garage, but the tires were inflated and the local roads would have been quiet enough for some fun travel. The grocery store in Brooklyn was well stocked and had long hours; we never felt like we were missing anything.
The best part of the visit was discovering the house and yard to be great for reconnecting with family, relaxing in and on the water, and delving into the library. The kitchen was clean and pretty well stocked with appliances, tools, and cookware. We could easily imagine renting the other house, as well, and inviting siblings and their families to join us.
The owners were responsive as we planned our visit, promptly answering all our questions. A neighbor was available by phone in case we had any problems.
We felt a kinship with the family that had obviously enjoyed their vacations here years ago.

Comfortable and welcoming accommodations!

My wife, infant son and I and a few friends spend a week at this beautiful cabin in July. When it was hot outside, we enjoyed the lake and air conditioning. When it was cool, we enjoyed the spacious lawn. The inside of the house is very nice and makes you feel welcome. Truly a relaxing vacation!
