Laid Back Lakefront Cottage--Enjoy a Fun Family Vacation on Powers Lake

Bedrooms 4

Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

This two-story chalet style cottage sits right on the water of a small bay on Powers Lake, Wisconsin. Powers Lake is spring fed and very clean.

Our lakefront is great for swimming.. a long shallow entry with a pebbly bottom. Lake views are on two sides of the property. Spectacular sunset views as well as star-filled night skies are featured from the front cedar deck which overlooks the lake. Our family has enjoyed many wonderful days in this pleasant home, which is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac.

Families will be very comfortable with the open connected space of the great room, dining area, and kitchen. There is plenty more space to relax on the deck, in the screened porch, and recroom. A large grassy lawn offers a spot for outside games.

Main Living Space includes:

• Great Room with floor-to-ceiling windows along entire lakeside and knotty-pine paneling on walls.

• Dining Area with picture window and view of the lake

• Kitchen with lake view and open to dining area and great room

• Wide Cedar Deck across the front lakeside of the house

• 4 Bedrooms (queen, queen, queen and twin, 2 doubles)

• Full Bath

Downstairs…which opens out to the lake:

• Large Rec Room with ping pong table

• Screened-in Porch under the upstairs deck

• 2 Showers and ½ Bathroom

• Laundry Room

• Garage

Fishing on Powers Lake is great — northern pike, bass, and pan fish! Many of the best catches have been made right off our pier.

Why Susie Matush chose Powers Lake

We love this comfortable cottage located on a lot with one of the best views of Powers Lake. Sunsets are remarkable and can be seen from the outside deck, great room, dining area, kitchen, and screened- in porch. Or sit on the bench at the end of the pier for a peaceful, sunset moment. That is when and where our son proposed to his wife!

What makes this house unique

In many lakes, the lake bottom is mucky and thus unpleasant to walk in. The lake bottom at our property is pebbly and firm to the end of the pier (about 80-feet). This makes for a really nice swimming area for young children.

Cozy comfortable cabin with gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls weekend here and had a great time. The house was comfortable with all the amenities we could need and the views of the lake were stunning. We had an issue with the A/C when we arrived and Susie was responsive and took care of it ASAP! I will definitely keep this property in mind for future family or group trips!

Perfect view and large space

  • 5 of 5

We were at this cottage during the middle of August. We were able to spend the weekend in the lake which is clear enough to see the bottom near the shore. The access from the large deck to the lake makes it easy to get out of the lake and inside to refresh on drinks and snacks. There is a large side yard in addition to the yard akin to the lake which was great for outdoor games and bonfire. It is covered with trees for shade but provides for a greater than 180 degree view as it is on the point of one bend of the lake.

The inside had significant space and we didn't even utilize the large basement that was available. Many couches and beds allowed for easy sleeping arrangement. Open kitchen concept allowed for constant communication and fun.

I can't wait to get back next year. Will 100% be back there as this was the perfect place to rent coming for Chicago to get out on a lake for a few nights. Thanks for a great weekend!

My friends and I rented this place for a nice HS reunion. It was everything we wanted it to be! The place was huge with great views and everything was very clean. Our host was also very eager to answer any questions we had and assist us in anyway!

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

A group of childhood friends and I rented this cottage for a weekend in May. We are in our 30s and 40s and get together once a year for a weekend without the youngsters. We arrived Friday and left Sunday. The entire weekend was spent on the property, grilling, enjoying the yard, pier, fresh air, great views, and spectacular sunsets. The living room and kitchen are open and surrounded by windows and walk-out deck. Plenty of bedrooms and beds. All-in-all this is a fantastic place to relax for a weekend.

And Susie was super easy to work with and very accommodating. In my VRBO/Airbnb/HomeAway experiences that "customer service" is invaluable. We will be back!

Lake House on Powers Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Lake House. Everything was very roomy and clean. The kitchen was stocked well with just about everything you'd need. There were plenty of beds. Unfortunately it was too cold for us to go out on the lake (due to the time of year we were there), but the view was breathtaking from just about anywhere in the house! The enclosed patio on the lower level was fantastic. The sun warmed it during the day, and it stayed warm into the evening. We had several visitors during the week, and they all loved it. Thanks for sharing your home with us. We will definitely recommend it to our friends.

Ideal Cabin in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Owner Suzie was very easy to work with. This was a getaway weekend for a group of ladies and all of our expectations were met! The location is very quiet as you are on a small Peninsula at the tip. Sitting on the deck was almost like being on a boat and when that got too hot in the sun, we moved to the beautiful sun dappled yard We had everything we needed in the kitchen. It looked like the fishermen loved fishing right off the edge of our dock.
