Peaceful, perfect weekend getaway
Views are tremendous. Hot tub, kayaking, and fishing all great activities. Interior amenities with Wii, Netflix, and Dish are good for rainy days too. Brent was exceptional host. We will be back!
Peaceful and serene.
Very cozy and quiet. Perfect for relaxation and fishing.
Perfect Private Getaway
Brent and Mary's lower unit was exactly what my husband and I needed for a little three night get-away. The property was beautiful, clean, quiet, and offered the calm and fun we were looking for. Though it rained for a bit of the time during our stay, we still found time to grill, kayak, hot tub, and enjoy the sun-rise over Mirror Lake. We cooked breakfast each morning in the kitchenette- and enjoyed some cider during the evenings from the adorable cider brewery a few miles away. We enjoyed our time in Brooklyn, Michigan where we saw amazing murals, bought fun antiques, and enjoyed the small and local businesses. I would highly recommend this location to stay for a couple, like us, or even if you have children too. There was lots of space and everything was just perfect. :)
Very Nice and Relaxing
My wife and I had a very nice stay at this property. We enjoyed the kayaks, and hot tub. The local private beach is nice also. A short walk or paddle away. The views are nice. We didn't rent the pontoon or fish. Though mirror lake is clearly a great lake for fishing. We only met Brent at the property, and he was very nice, and accommodating. There were a few cons that kept it from 5 stars, but I'd give our stay a 4.5 if I could. There was an issue with a music player skipping we couldn't control. It was taken care of as quickly as possible, but the lack of control over the space we were staying in was a small disappointment. You couldn't hear it over the hot tub jets so it was almost a non issues. The bed was a little too stiff for our liking, better for me than my wife. That said I was relaxed enough at this property to sleep well, not perfect, but well. There is the fact that you're sharing a property to consider. We found it easy enough to disconnect from our day to day lives while at this great property, but it's inescapable to notice you're sharing a house with others. If you're looking for total seclusion I doubt you'll find it at this property. That said the renters were very respectful of our privacy, and didn't go out of the way to engage us, and when we did cross paths it was pleasant.
We hit a few wineries in the area. Cheery Creak is a short drive away. There are several others within a half hour drive. There are hiking trails at MacCready Nature Reserve that is a short 5-10 minute drive away. We grilled a few nights at the property, nice grill, and ate out a few night also. Definitely check out Grand River Brewery in Jackson. Get the Brisket or something that comes with it, and chronic fries, very good.
Overall I would recommend this property to others.
Very peaceful and relaxing
Would definitely come back here again.
Perfect spot for a getaway or extended stay.
I had to be nearby on business for three weeks and wanted a more homey atmosphere where I could cook for myself. Aside from the gorgeous lakefront location and spectacular views, the homeowners are awesome as well as accommodating.
