A large, beautiful home in the Irish Hills area of southeastern Michigan. The home is nestled on a hill overlooking Little Stoney Lake. With an open floor plan and abundant natural light streaming in on all sides, this two story house is ideal for large groups, gatherings, and for anyone who wants to feel one with nature. The large great room is lined with windows looking out at a wooded area or the acres of land attached to the house complete with native plants and hiking trails. The large wraparound deck off the back of the house has built in benches and is perfect for soaking up sun, bird watching, or for late afternoon grilling and socializing. The upstairs bedrooms have spectacular views of the lake and the nearby woods.
While the house is not directly on the lake, the lake, complete with access to a private waterfront area and a dock, is just a short walk down the hill. Perfect for swimming, fishing, or just taking in the sun on lazy summer days, Little Stoney Lake is a pristine, quiet lake with no motorboats or jet skis. Take a kayak, paddleboat, 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 back door and explore the network of hiking trails that meander through the land attached to the house. The trails connect to the adjacent state preserve land – ideal 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/NASCAR; 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.
A second property (VRBO # 370580) is 100 yards away and may be rented with this house for very large gatherings.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Overall, this home is wonderful for large groups. We had a large group and there was plenty of room to stretch out. The kids really enjoyed the house too! Especially the piano!
Property was well kept, clean and very "homey". Perfect home away from home.
As soon as we walked through the door, it felt like we had just arrived at our very own place. The place was filled with the collections of a lifetime of memorabilia, artwork, and photographs of the family that had lived there. I was transformed into a place that felt very familiar and welcomed. If anyone wants to stay at a place where you feel completely like you are at Grandma's and Grandpa's place, this will be perfect for you! There were 13 of us and there were plenty of accommodations to take care of us all, very comfortably.
Second year, excellent experience again!
Everything was amazing. Lots of space, clean environment, very quiet neighborhood! Overall perfect for large groups. Will definitely book again!
Had a great stay
Owner very easy to work with,house clean and stocked with everything you need
Lovely secluded get away
My family and I recently stayed at this cottage and we had a wonderful time! The cottage has plenty of room for big families and is stocked with most of the essentials you'll need for your stay! That made packing so much easier for us, especially with kids. There is a nice yard with lots of games for indoor and outdoor use! The lake is extremely close, only a few steps away, with a nice dock and row boat! It is also somewhat secluded so you feel like you have lots of privacy and the neighbors are all very welcoming! I would recommend this cottage to any family having a small reunion or just large families.
