          Car: Necessary

          The Yellow House at Evans Lake in Michigan's beautiful Irish Hills. Located within an hours drive from Toledo and Detroit near Brooklyn the home of Michigan International Speedway.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2005

          About the owner: We lived in the Irish Hills when we first got married in the early 90's. In 1999, career opportunities moved us away from the area. In 2005, we jumped at the opportunity to purchase a second home on one of the nicest lakes in the area.

          Why the Owner Chose Brooklyn:
          This property is large for a lake front property with mature trees and great lake views. We reconstructed a small cottage into The Yellow House in 2008.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          One our favorite things to do is sit under the maple tree, drinking a tall cool one while watching the lake activity! Of course, that's when we are not tubing, skiing, swimming, wake boarding, or fishing ourselves! There is a porch swing that greets you when you arrive and many other little cozy areas around the yard. Mornings are a wonderful time at The Yellow House. If you are a morning person, you will love enjoying a cup of coffee on the deck watching the sun rise, wildlife starting their day, and the early morning fisherman reeling in their catches! During the day, there is a yard big enough for lots of activities, including volleyball! There are kayaks, a peddle boat, and a swimming platform to enjoy the lake! And a wonderful beach front to play in. You can fish right from the dock! The Yellow House includes a pontoon boat. After dinner, you will see the 'parade' of pontoons from around the lake doing their evening cruise. It takes about an hour to go around the lake and is a perfect way to wined down the day. At night, the paver patio with fire pit is the way to end the day. Telling campfire stories and roasting marsh mellows is a classic.
