Jerome House Rental Photos and Description

Lower Portion of 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. This is our primary residence and we rent out the lower portion of the house. 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.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Brent & Mary's place for a four night extended weekend. It was the perfect quiet, relaxing getaway that we were looking for. We spent most of our time on Mirror Lake using both the rowboat and pontoon to fish and just enjoy the peaceful surroundings. We also took advantage of their hot tub most of the days. The accommodations were well-furnished, clean and comfortable. For dinners, we went to Artesian Wells (walleye), Klavon's Pizzeria in Jackson and Saucy Dog's (BBQ) in Jonesville...all were really good. Brent and Mary are very nice people and easy to work with. They are quick to respond for anything that comes up and at the same time they respect your right to privacy. We would definitely book it again.

Awesome time

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a great time at Brent and Mary's place. We stayed for 5 days in July. There home and rental were beautiful. There home sits on Mirror lake which is just the right size. The sunrises in the morning were breathtaking. We used Brent's kayaks everyday sometimes two or three times. There is a small community park that we kayaked to for a picnic and swimming. We used there hot tub every night and watched all the fireflies. The fishing was great, we have never caught so many while on vacation. The residents in this community were all more than friendly while on our daily walks. We ate one night at Artisian Wells. The rest of the days we bar-b-q ed. We also enjoyed an afternoon at the Ann Arbor Art Fair. Thanks Brent and Mary can't wait to come back again.

Very Nice

  • 3 of 5

It was a very nice place to stay. They provided with a lot of things to do so you do not have to leave. I did not like that being out side eating or in the hot tube, you as the renter have no control over what music is being played. That made it hard and upsetting. Working the technology inside other then the TV was not easy. But the place was very clean when we got there. The lake is small but very nice to be on and boat around. There is also no oven, but there is a grill with a burner so plan your food according. I do not think I would go back, but it can definitely be a good place for others!

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Brent's lovely home while we were in town having his eye surgery in Jackson. We choose to stay here and not a hotel because it would be quiet and relaxing while my husband recovered. Brent was there to make sure you had anything you might need, but also gave you your privacy. It was very roomy for the two of us along with a beautiful view of the lake. The kitchen was well equipped with whatever cooking items you might need to use and we also took advantage of several restaurants in the area. It was like being home while my husband recovered. Thanks again Brent.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

Brent and Mary's place was so relaxing. My son is at college nearby and I wanted to stay for a couple of extra days after parent's weekend. I am looking forward to booking again when I go back to visit. I slept so well there and Brent and Mary took care of everything. They even did a load of laundry for me and cooked my frozen pizza. When you go, be sure to visit Meckley's Flavor Fruit Farm and get some pumpkin donuts and apple cider. It's just a couple of miles away.
