Find the best place to stay — Brooklyn

Get a taste of the Emerald Isle without the pricey airfare

Settled by Irish immigrants from 1830 to 1850, it's no surprise that the rolling green hills surrounding Brooklyn earned the moniker Irish Hills thanks to their similarity to landscapes back home. Nestled among lush hills, picturesque countryside, and glittering lakes, the quaint small town with its welcoming main street offers the perfect respite from big city life. Nearby you'll find plenty of lakes to get your fresh air fix, plus hidden gems like wineries, gift shops, and antique stores to explore. There's also some top-notch racing action for the NASCAR aficionados in the group.

Uncover the hidden treasures of the Irish Hills

While the area may take its name from the hills, the lakes are the true haven for outdoor enthusiasts. A Brooklyn vacation rental is paradise for water lovers, with endless opportunities for boating, swimming, and watersports nearby. You'll also find prime fishing and hunting grounds scattered throughout the region. Pack a picnic and grab your hiking boots before heading to trails of Walter J. Hayes State Park, and reward yourself with a stop at Cherry Creek Winery after a long day of exercise and fresh air.

From historic stagecoaches to lightning-fast racecars

Take a step back in time to the days of stagecoach travel when you visit Cambridge Junction Historic State Park. Home to Walker Tavern, which served as a major stopping point for stagecoaches traveling between Chicago and Detroit in the early 19th century, you'll learn all about local life in the olden days. A Brooklyn vacation rental also lets you experience the NASCAR phenomenon first-hand, with the renowned Michigan International Speedway in your backyard. The 755 acres of wilderness at Hidden Lake Gardens are perfect for when you need your fresh air fix.

Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call

Every season offers something new in the Irish Hills. Late September and October offer a stunning display of fall colors, while spring sees the hills come alive with their signature greens after the long winter. November to March can see below-freezing temperatures, with plenty of snow to boot. You'll want to bundle up in January and February, when lows can venture into the single digits. Summers are warm to hot, with a healthy dose of humidity and temperatures soaring into the 80s and 90s in July and August.

The green, green grass of home

Lush rolling hills combine with idyllic lakes to create landscapes that are almost too pretty for words. A Brooklyn vacation rental in the heart of Michigan's Irish Hills offers plenty of material to make your Instagram followers green with envy. More than 50 lakes offer endless recreation and a chance to beat the summer heat. Dotted with small towns and picturesque farms, central lower Michigan is a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life, but if you're craving an urban fix, you can be in Lansing or Ann Arbor in under an hour.
