Brooklyn house description

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. 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.

                    My husband and I wanted to get away for the weekend and relax and this house was perfect for that! We went in March so we could not utilize the lake, but the views were wonderful. No matter if you were on the patio, sitting in the hut tub or sitting on the couch you had a nice view of the water. The house was very clean and kept up nicely. We will definitely return!

                    My Girlfriend and I wanted to get away for the weekend but didn't want to drive 4 hours up north to do it. This is house was very nice and clean. The pictures on the website match exactly what you see when you show up. Mary was very nice and friendly. She made us feel right at home and helped us get around the area to explore and and eat. If your looking to relax this is the place to do it. We definitely would like to return to this spot again.

                    The property situated on a private lake is a great getaway. Upon arriving we were greeted by Brent and the rules and guidelines were laid down which were very much acceptable. What can I say, if you're looking for a relaxing, quiet place, this is it. While we were here we did and seen the following. We traveling into Jackson, MI and hit a few wineries. Chateau Aeronautique Winery, Sandhill Crane Vineyards, .Sleeping Bear Winery, Cherry Creek Winery were the ones we visited, Chateau Aeronautique Winery being our favorite. We had to purchase a new bicycle and the bike shop in Jackson really helped us out. We went to Brooklyn to do laundry and it was a nice town. While staying at Brent and Mary's we used the paddle boat to fish. We dropped lines in the water and rowed about the lake, traveling east to west and north to south, "trolling" and were successful catching a walleye, a few small mouth bass and a black crappie. We had fresh fish three nights using the pots and pans provided on the grill, perfect! One morning I arose to see a doe eating lilly pads from the waters edge. One afternoon we found a duck using a nearby oak tree for its nest, how cool. We road our bikes about the roads and took in many good views. This property is as described, it has all the needs for a quiet vacation. Very clean and comfortable. Granted there is no oven, but any good cook can make a great meal in the microwave and the grill with a side burner. The leather furniture was very inviting and the bedroom was very warm. Both Mary and Brent are very down to earth and great hosts. Even though our vacation was more wet than dry, I would return again for a visit and vacation. I would be remiss not to mention that Mary makes a great Mojito. Just ask her to do some muddling.

                    Lovely property with great owners! We came down for our anniversary weekend and the home was just right. Brent and Mary were extremely helpful and a pleasure to meet and hang out with. Mary's mojitos are second to none and perfect to enjoy on the deck overlooking the lake. Good restaurants within decent driving distance and the Cherry Creek Winery was an excellent day trip. I would recommend this home to anyone and hope to return soon.

                    We enjoyed our time on Mirror lake. It was quiet and very peaceful. It was a great place to celebrate our daughters 4th birthday. Brent & Mary were very helpful with anything that came up. If you enjoy the water, rent the pontoon boat. It has plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy the lake. The house was clean and enjoyable. We would love to come back sometime!

                    Our stay at this rental was very nice! Accommodations were very nice! The house is beautiful and sits on an equally beautiful piece of property. The surroundings are very peaceful and quiet ~ great place to kick back and take it easy. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. Lots of good place to eat and shop in the area. If you like to go antiquing - this is the place for you!

                    My dad rented this spot for four days for the family. Awesome location and space was clean and very comfortable. Owners were very warm and welcoming. I would rent this location again plus I caught the only perch! :-) Only an hour away from my home but had that "up north" feel on a gorgeous private lake.

                    Our family of 5 enjoyed the most relaxing lake home vacation this past July. Brent and Mary are so easy to work with and made our stay wonderful. We enjoyed tubing off the pontoon boat every day and relaxed in the hot tub & fire in the evenings. We loved that we were one of two boats on the lake. The barbecue grill came in handy so we didn't have to leave the beauty of the lake. I would highly recommend this vacation home to families or for couples. The home was very clean which was VERY important to us, we plan on coming back next summer. Thanks Brent & Mary!

                    We spent a week on Mirror Lake at this beautiful home hosted by the most gracious couple we have had a chance to meet. There are enough great reviews on this site about this home and the owners, so we had high expectations to start with. It would be no exaggeration to say that the home and the hosts both far exceeded our expectations!!! There are many reasons this is a perfect vacation spot..... THE LAKE... We did have some apprehension about the size of the lake, but once we got there, we realized it would work to our advantage. It is a small lake but if you are looking for a safe place for you and your children to swim and tube, you could not pick a better spot. Since the lake has restricted access, it is safe and clean. Our 10-year old spent as much time as she could in the water and on the tube. There is a pontoon that you can rent from the owners for the week and we would highly recommend it. AN IMMACULATELY MAINTAINED HOME.... The house itself was clean and well-equipped with everything you need, An amazing collection of WII games kept our daughter busy when we had to retreat indoors. There is no gas stove in the unit but the gas grill with a side burner outside more than makes up for it. Nothing beats grilling / cooking outdoors with stunning views of the lake!!! The house has beautiful landscaping as well, making it perfect both indoors and outdoors. There is also a firepit and deck right at the water's edge that you can take advantage of. With so many options onsite, there was little reason to go anywhere in search of things to do. Still, a short walk from the house brings you a sandy beach and a park for kids to play. THE HOSTS... Mary and Brent went out of their way to make our stay memorable. They have the unique ability of being there to help you without being intrusive. We came away from our time on Mirror Lake knowing we will definitely return to their home again. HOT TUB.... The hot tub on the deck is fantastic, but we would have to return to take advantage of it. It was much too warm during our stay to be able to use it. The only negative of this place is .... you won't want to leave and the return to reality after time spent there is a difficult transition to make!!!

                    My husband & I had one of the most relaxing vacations ever here. Our 2 adult children & one of their friends also visited for a few days & it was great! Coffee on the patio in morning, jogging or biking everyday, pontoon boat & swimming, great grill for cooking all our meals, relaxing hot tub and great fire-pit. Mary & Brent are the perfect hosts, there when you want them, yet invisible if you want privacy and Mary"s mojitos are the best! The accommodations are everything advertised. A stove would have been nice since we cook most meals but we managed fine without it. Great area with a lot to do if you want to be busy or like us just to "chill out" for a few days. We left well rested & rejuvenated, would love to come back.
