Overview

About the property

Estate, 7 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 22), Converted B&B to Single Family Home

This home is truly a 'one of a kind' family reunion / corporate or private retreat.

Built in the 1890's on the most premier property on Powers Lake (just seven miles from Lake Geneva and minutes over the Illinois border) this home was completely renovated from a former historic B&B into a unique single family historic residence. Original leaded/stained glass, millwork, coffered ceilings and 1890 design elements have all been restored to their original glory.

Property amenities include; 2.5 beautiful rolling acres of open space, 1,000 feet of water frontage flanking three sides of the residence, a private beach, two new stone terraced patios with plenty of outdoor seating, 2 outdoor fire pits, boat dock, volleyball/badminton court, expansive water views and incredible privacy. Every room in this house has a unique lake view.

Powers Lake is a spring fed inland lake and one of the cleanest swimming lakes in Wisconsin which allows all types of boating, jet skiing, swimming and fishing.

The property features a main house which can sleep 22 comfortably in beds!!! A wonderful covered 5 person swing at the pointe of the property compliments the open green space for all types of outdoor activities.

****PLEASE NOTE - ONLY 7 NIGHT RENTALS DURING PRIME SEASON IN JUNE, JULY AND AUGUST***

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nancy and John, Where do we begin - Our family LOVED staying here! We had a sing-a-long by the camp fire. We put on a family talent show in the living room. The beds and linens were all a treat for weary relatives. We played games on the enclosed porch and the braver ones swam in the lake. Three floors with living rooms was a nice thing we have seldom seen. We all look forward to staying here again.

Great place for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend in February for a retreat with a group of 15 women and had an amazing time. The house had everything we needed. Loved that there are multiple gathering areas, the wood-burning fireplace was so cozy, the view so nice to wake up to. I have stayed a lot of VRBO properties and really felt like this one is maintained so well, especially as compared to some others I've been in. Just wish it had been warm enough to use all the outdoor gathering areas, they looked so inviting!

Fantastic house for a staff retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our staff team of 7 rented the house for our staff retreat. The combination of meeting spaces, relaxation places, outdoor quiet, and overall loveliness was just what our team needed. And a perfect 90 minutes from Chicago. Can't recommend highly enough.

John and Nancy's property on Pwers Lake , WI was cozy, homey , clean and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family enjoyed every minute of our stay at "The Pointe". Both the indoor and outdoor spaces were accommodating and comfortable to spend time in. We all agreed that this would be a place we'd like to gather at again.

Wonderful lake house with lots of charm

  • 5 of 5

This lake house on Powers Lake was just awesome. Our family gathered from 3 different states and enjoyed the many amenities that the property offered. The beautiful grounds and the house itself were in great shape. The kitchen, bathrooms and all other rooms were very clean and offered everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The furnishings were so quaint and cozy that we felt at home right away. Using the pontoon boat turned out to be a favorite activity each day. Our grandchildren loved taking rides around the lake; especially when we anchored near a sand bar in the middle of the lake and they were able to walk in shallow water in what should have been very deep water. We all enjoyed fishing off the shore, toasting s'mores around the fire pit in the evenings, and just savoring the privacy and quiet of this beautiful home. We would recommend it as a wonderful vacation site for anyone. The Westendorf Family
