Amazing home for our large group with young children!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay! The home was perfect for our larger group with young children, everyone had a wonderful time. The home itself is in beautiful condition, and there were multiple spaces indoors and out to hang out, eat, and play. It had everything we needed and more.

All 5 bedrooms were large and equally nice. Plenty of room for pack n plays or toddler sleeping cots. The sun room might have been the highlight of the home - huge and bright, with lots of seating and space. We found ourselves in there most of the time when we were indoors. The home was stocked with tons of towels and the general supplies we needed. There were 2 refrigerators (one was commercial size) which was extremely practical to store our food and drinks without extra coolers needed.

The front deck was huge with plenty of seating and the property was well kept with nice landscaping and plenty of grass for the kids to run and play. The pier across the street was large with a platform at the end that had seating and was fun for the kids to fish off of. The waterfront was sandy with a gradual decline into the water - no drop off so it was safe for our young kids to play near.

The property was overall accessible with a ramp up the deck to the main level which had one bedroom, a half bath, and access to all the shared spaces including the the eat-in kitchen, living room, and sun room. The land was flat to the pier without steps or steep inclines.

The location of the home was great - a bar/restaurant essentially next door with a tasty fish fry and homemade pizza. The locals we met were all friendly and gave great suggestions for things to do in the area from the free Aquanuts water show to a big festival going on nearby. Twin Lakes and Lake Geneva were a quick drive away with more options for things to do and places to eat as well. A nice perk for the location was that Peapod grocery delivery service was able to deliver our groceries to our home for the weekend, allowing us to skip the store and focus on the fun.

Overall we had a wonderful trip - the home was lovely, there was plenty to do, and the owners were nearby and extremely nice and gracious. Highly recommend this home for your stay!

Perfect for multiple families with kids and pets

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough about this beautiful house! We had three families who stayed there for a week including a toddler and a dog. It was perfect! Plenty of spacious rooms and a HUGE deck over looking the lake that was perfect for the little one to run around while we cooked dinner on the grill. A LARGE sunroom that can be used for a big dinner or just to sit out and talk! Lots of room to spread out!

The small private beach was so much fun! My daughter loved to play in the sand and swim in the clear water.

I highly recommend this house! Very clean and the owners were so helpful!

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was as advertised. The owners live next door and were helpful with any questions we had. The layout is great and we enjoyed the 3 season room each night after coming in from outside. We enjoyed our time at your home and would definitely come back again!

Comfortable family getaway on a beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 had a fantastic 5-day stay at this lake house directly on Powers Lake. We had 3 families with 5 young children (all under 7) and the house more than accommodated our needs. Plenty of bedrooms -- each with very comfortable beds and linens! Lots of common space to relax, play, talk, etc. We loved the sun room and spent the bulk of our time here, enjoying all the windows and sunlight. Weather didn't cooperate the first 2 days but when it did, we were able to experience ALL that the house had to offer. Huge grassy yard with lots of space to play, run, kick balls. Large deck with a BBQ grill was for perfect for lunch and dinner -- although a larger outdoor dining table with some more chairs would have been great. The lake and beach were directly across the road from the house. Beach was perfect for the young kids; the lake had a sandy bottom that was cleared of weeds. Kids loved chasing little minnows and fish. Plus, we caught a dozen or so sunfish from the dock, which was their highlight of the trip. Bill and his wife lived right next door and were super helpful and attentive to our needs. He even took us on a pontoon ride around the lake. Our only wish was that the kitchen was a little bit more stocked with essentials and pantry items, including tupperware and storage bags.....as we cooked big meals each night and would have liked more ways to store/keep leftovers. We'd highly recommend this place to other large groups and would definitely consider coming back again.
