Brooklyn House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

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.

Lovely secluded get away

  • 5 of 5

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.

Very spacious home!

We had a lovely time. There was plenty of room for us, our three daughters and their families. I would definitely recommend this home to family and friends, or anyone else who is thinking about it.

Nice house and good fun

  • 5 of 5

The house is well kept, clean and fully stocked, especially the kitchen. The living room is spacious and has good arrangements for music and games. There are plenty of pull out beds and mattresses to sleep 8-10 adults and 5-6 kids. The lake is ok, no sandy beach but the home provides kayaks, paddle boat and inflatables. We had great time in the lake with kids, enjoyed grilling one evening and played games in the backyard. The owner was very responsive and courteous. Good, spacious home for the price and we would visit again.

Amazing House - Close to town - Very quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The house is incredible, beds were comfortable, lots of space to sleep and for meetings and to just relax. 3 bathrooms is perfect for groups! Everything was very clean.

It was really close to the Michigan International Speedway and a couple of minutes drive to the nearest town (Brooklyn) where you can find anything you need.

We were there one week for our competition and never regretted our choice! We would definitely recommend!

Great spot for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the home overlooking Little Stoney Lake. This is a great property for large groups! The first floor of the house is quite large and open . . perfect for gathering together to share meals, visit, play games, etc. The kitchen is well equipped. The lot affords lots of privacy, yet is very close to the lake. Loved the access to kayaks, the paddleboat, fishing rods and other water toys. Owner was very responsive and caretakers were very helpful. Would definitely consider a return trip.
