Quiet Paradise: Beautiful Little Stoney Lake-Front Home -- Winter Season Rates

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

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 (note: TVs are in bedrooms, not common room). 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.

Very nice place to stay😎🇺🇸

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Good swimming, nice fire pit for evenings. House has all the amenities you would need. Located close enough to a great local grocery and family sporting goods store for anything you might need. Larry and Donna are available and very nice folks too. I did not fish much but did catch some nice bluegill which I ate🎣 If you forget to bring something to read there is a wide variety in the house to choose from.

Very quaint

  • 3 of 5

Overall enjoyed the property. The water had a foul smell, but the owner did try to get it fixed during our stay but because it was over the weekend couldn't get it done. There is no dish washer and the air conditioning upstairs is just ok. The tv has no HD and has the lowest basic cable package. I did mention it to the owner, hopefully they will upgrade it. With that said I would rent it again. They were very nice people and seemed to care.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and thank you for your help and patience during your stay. The water problem has been resolved with a new water heater. We do hope you will return in 2017.

Lovely setting on a very peaceful and serene lake

  • 5 of 5

The lake house was wonderful and exceeded our expectations. It was comfortable and is very well equipped with

nice kitchen, bathroom and bedroom items. It is at the end of Little Stoney Lake Road and therefore there is no auto

traffic whatsoever. A very peaceful, tranquil and beautiful setting. It is located within minutes of several grocery stores,

making it convenient if one needs to run to the store for anything. Several family members visited at various times and

the home is perfect for entertaining family and friends. We absolutely loved the place and hope to return next year and for

many years thereafter.

Great house; Great Fixtures, Great Fun

  • 5 of 5

Our first time at LSL. House very adequate for six adults and four "children" (ages 11 to 19). Kitchen had every appliance we needed.

Rowboat, kayaks, grill, fire pit and pier all got good workouts.

Sign up, check in, check out, payments, etc. went more smoothly than I have ever experienced before (including other VRBOs). Donna (resident caretaker) was a great help and went way beyond the normal call of duty.

The Beach Bar on Clark Lake was a great spot for a week end dinner.

Nice location, we enjoyed the dock

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this unusual rental home on Little Stony Lake in 8/2015. Was surprised by lack of dishwasher, but we adjusted.

Pros: Quiet, private, nice dock, kayaks, bikes, kitchen well-supplied with tools, comfortable beds, lots of books. Owner is very responsive.

Cons: Unlike most rental homes, this house is packed with personal knick-knacks and family photos - they cover the window sills, the mantle, any horizontal space. Towels and sheets are okay but dated. It's as if you're in the home of an elderly relative who can't let go of stuff.
