What makes this house unique

This property allows one to relax in the peacefulness of nature, away from all the hustle of everyday life, but provides excellent dining and shopping only minutes away in the resort atmosphere of Lake Geneva.

Guestbook comments from the owner

... we really enjoyed our stay. This was the first time we rented a house from VRBO.com and couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. The layout of your house was perfect for our family, it had everything we needed and more. The house was very clean and it was greatly appreciated that you thought of the little things to have in the house that we may not have thought to bring like extra toilet paper, hand soap and dish washing liquid. You have a beautiful family as well….similar in that my parents also had three girls. The stay was especially important to my dad as it was always something he wanted to do for the Holidays... [and] he was really looking forward to getting away. My dad has high standards so ...[I] wanted it to be perfect and it really was. He was very pleased and really enjoyed himself. We hope to rent it in the future, maybe in the summer time

Late April Guys Weekend

  • 5 of 5

8 of my closest friends and I wanted a place to hang out for the weekend. Play bags, BBQ, sit around and not do much at all. We have stayed in Wisconsin now for a few years running and this was the nicest house we stayed in. Great ping pong table, TVs in all the right places, HUGE yard on the water. I would recommend this place for any large group to stay.

Fantastic house for a large group or family

  • 5 of 5

Our group (5 couples) has been going on a fall weekend retreat for many years and this year we came upon this house in the Lake Geneva area we wanted to visit. In short, the house was wonderful, very spacious and comfortable for 5 couples; more beds were even available that we did not need. The large back yard leading out to the lake was very scenic and we used it throughout the weekend to enjoy a truly spectacular fall weekend. We enjoyed a fire in the firepit and were even entertained by some fireworks shot off by someone across the lake. The house was comfortably decorated with many seating areas for socializing. Trips to Lake Geneva are only 15 minutes and there's much to see and do (and eat!) there. The weather could not have been more perfect!

Judi and Bob were wonderful to work with and we were so pleased with the experience we intend to go back for a repeat visit next year.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this beautiful home for our annual girl cousins weekend getaway! This home was perfect for us! The open kitchen /sunroom / living room was so perfect we decided to cook all weekend instead of going out!! The views were gorgeous! Wish we could of stayed longer! The well water was smelly, & it did bother some of the cousins! But it was enough to keep me away!

WOW, just beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this house justice! I rented this home for a "Ladies Weekend" with my high school girlfriends (class of 79). We were all so pleased with the home. It is bright, beautifully decorated, comfortable, and expansive! Fourteen of us were able to mingle, cook, chat, and eat together at the dining room table. There are many bathrooms, bedrooms, cribs for the little ones, and beautiful views of the lake. The owners were lovely to work with, I would recommend this home to family and friends. The only downside is the home is on well and septic, so there is that smell when you take a shower. The owners did stock the home with many jugs of drinking water for the dispenser in the kitchen. My friends and I all agreed we would like to rebook for next year, the home is just perfect for our get-togethers! You are a short drive to shopping in Lake Geneva and if you wish to go for a local drink there is a cute bar in walking distance of the home. The kitchen was well appointed for our meals. I could only imagine how awesome this house would be for a summer rental!

Owner's Response: Thanks ladies for such a great review of the property, and thank you for letting us know about the shower water. We checked and determined that the water softener was not working while you were visiting. We have taken care of the situation, which has fixed the mineral smells. Hope you visit us, again.

Fantastic Family Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My brother rented this property for a family weekend to celebrate Mom's 75th birthday. We absolutely LOVED this house and plan to return in the summer. The house is recently updated, beautifully decorated very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Pictures don't do it justice. Everyone was so impressed. The kitchen has everything you need and more. We filled the 12 person dining table and Mom was so happy were we all able to sit together for once! Kids and adults really enjoyed pool and ping pong - this house had everything. People even exclaimed over the soft towels! Have rented a few houses over the years and this was by far the best. Highly recommend!

Fall at Powers Lake

  • 5 of 5

Home cleanliness - Excellent

Home style - Excellent / recently updated / fixtures and furniture cottage / Pottery Barn style

Yard - Excellent / swing set / super large yard / beachfront

Owners - Excellent / very responsive / used email / text well

Extras - Excellent / pool table / ping pong / wifi / satellite / games - the kids had plenty to do to stay occupied.

Only drawback was well water was not advertised. There was drinking water on site and my family has done well water at other homes we've stayed at and get it but it would have been nice to know.

All in all it was a perfect week of Lake Geneva in the fall
