The home consists of 3 bedrooms (1 king, 1 queen, and full + bunk beds) and one bathroom. The home is cozy and has a homey feel with its old- school doilies, silk flowers and dolls decorating the living and family rooms. The updated kitchen and back addition provide ample space for family. With an easy layout, this home is great for on-looking parents to relax and kids to play around.

Lawn Chairs: Yes. There are quite a few rocking swings to lounge around in and some benches by the fire pit.

The Lake: Mercury Lake is quite murky. Swimming is not ideal, however, nothing stops the brave. Mercury Lake has a canal that spits you out into South Lake, a bigger All-Sports lake. Great for tubing.

The Dock: There is a dock at Irish Hills, however, the lake is very shallow at the dock. A pontoon boat should be ok, if the water level is high enouh, or a fishing boat. home logo

Perfect family lake house

  • 5 of 5

If you have kids, this lake house is perfect! Immediately upon opening the door our 4 and 8 year old daughters saw the toy/play area and were completely entertained as we unloaded our belongings into the home. From the outside it looks small, but inside it accommodated my family of 6 comfortably and can fit more. The lay out was great, kitchen had everything you could ever need, bedrooms were roomy. The kids had a great time in the paddle boat ( seats 4) , fishing in the row boat, jumping off the dock and swimming. We had a bonfire every night, roasted marshmallows, and chased fireflies. The whole experience was fantastic! Lots of fish, wildlife, butterflies, toads, frogs, turtles, bats, and birds. Downtown Brooklyn is only 8 minutes away, dining/grocery/and shopping was easy. You are far enough away to feel remote, but close enough to conveniences to not panic if you forgot something at the store. This was a great experience, family getaway, and my whole family enjoyed it. We will be staying here again.

Thanks again, freshwater vr.

Lovely long weekend away

  • 4 of 5

The pictures of the home does not do it justice, it was very spacious and allowed my extended family many areas to have wonderful conversations and reconnect. We enjoyed the boats and venturing out to the big lake. The home's many windows and fans kept it comfortable for sleeping.

Wonderful & Relaxing Experience

  • 5 of 5

Mom and I stayed at this property during the month of April 2016. The cottage was clean, spacious and had everthing we needed to prepare meals. The beds and all the furniture was very comfortable. The view of the lake is simply awesome! We enjoyed swinging in the two swings in the front and back yard by day and sitting around the pit fire at night. We even enjoyed the next door neighbor and the neighbor across the road XMAS lights at night (yes in April). We also enjoyed karaoke on the machine provided. The company that is used to rent out this property was very easy to communicate with and responded quickly to any questions I had. The only issue we had was the reception for the TV was horrible but that may have been due to the windy weather. However we were able to stay entertained by watching the collection of DVDs that they provided. We will be back soon!!!

Lovely, quiet lake house

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you'll need for a fun family vacation. Sleeps at least 9-10, fully equipped kitchen, comfy living spaces. Home and yard were clean and well-maintained. Kids had a ball playing on the sand beach, jumping off the large dock, and taking paddle boat rides. Roasting marshmallows around the fire pit was a relaxing way to end each fun-filled day. Be sure to check out Harold's for dinner while you're there!

Beautiful property, very clean. Lots of amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Every year we get together with friends and the kids and stay here. It's very family friendly and also perfect for a night around the camp fire having some adult time once the little ones are off to sleep. It's spacious enough for all of us to sit together and enjoy a meal and each others company without feeling too crowded. The washer and dryer and full kitchen are a huge plus!
