Jefferson Island on Powers Lake: Huvila Finlandia cottage is situated in the middle o the Powers Lake, on Jefferson Island. Walking distance to few restaurants, others accessible by boat or car. On he lake the social scene is busy, there is the wonderful and popular 'rock bar' - a shallow area in the middle of the lake where boats anchor and people mingle and have fun (volley ball and cook outs in the middle of the lake). The 4th of July fireworks on this lake are impressive, the Powers Lake Yacht Club even host a Venetian Carnival - a must see - as pontoon boats get dressed up and parade around the lake competing for a winner! Sailing school for children, regattas, dinner parties, ladies tennis, all part of the club activities.
Lots of festivals! To mention few: Country Thunder Concert (mins away), Alpine Valley summer concerts and Lake Geneva has events through out summer...
Guests may bring their own boats and dock at Huvila Finlandia's pier. Boats can be rented nearby on the lake.
We'd strongly suggest this well kept home to anyone considering a summer retreat with their family. We were in charge of selecting a place for two other families to join us and thus the selection needed to live up to its billing. When the other families saw the home, boat house, piers and water trampoline we knew we had hit a home run by the expressions on their faces. The main living area is large enough for hanging around the house however the deck, fire pit and gas grill were more to our liking each evening. If you have a boat or jet skis you'll appreciate the option of two piers secluded in the bay. We plan on visiting again in 2010... it's that good.
