About Skip Powell
Riley and I moved to this home last year with a vision for hosting people in luxury. We felt compelled to share a beautiful home with others both for its daytime relaxation and adventure access and it extra bedrooms for overnight guests. We have 4 young children, between 3-8 years old that share this excitement to bring their friends over to this house of fun. We look forward to you enjoying this luxury as well. Skip
Skip Powell purchased this Villa in 2016

Our family totally enjoyed every part of the house and pool. It had adequate bedrooms and bathrooms for all of us. We cooked and ate all of our meals there. The basketball court was used for the game as well as a place for younger kids to do a variety of activities. The pool was the biggest hit for us. It is a big pool so everyone could be in it. And yes, the water was warm! Being able to use the toys in the house proved very beneficial for the 6 little kids we had. The dress up clothes kept our 2 four year old girls in the height of their glory. The owner, Skip, was very hospitable , had great instructions, and was always answered questions right away. We had wonderful time and would definitely consider going back .
We are so glad to hear how much fun your family had with the pool, gym, toys and costumes! We would be excited to have your family stay here anytime.

Perfect spot for a large group with amazing indoor basketball court and large pool
Wonderful experience renting from Skip. House was beautiful, spotless, and incredibly comfortable. Tons of space, and fabulous year-round amenities. Everyone could spread out and relax, but also great spaces in the kitchen, living room and porch where 10+ people can be together for dinner or socializing. Highly recommend!
Great place to stay!
Looks just like the pictures, it was a great place to stay. Close to the city but not the city feel. I would recommend this house to anyone, Skip made the stay very easy. He had instructions for everything and my group had an awesome time.
Gorgeous lakehouse, nice owners
Couldn't have been happier with this experience. The house is quite large, and each bedroom is legit/has enough separation to allow for quiet sleep/privacy. Amenities were great; speakers throughout the house, fast internet, a pool that was actually heated, etc. They also have two kayaks, a canoe and a paddleboard on a semi-private lake right next to the house.
Furthermore, Skip and his wife couldn't have been nicer. They were communicative throughout the experience and said yes to any reasonable requests we made...just seem like two genuinely nice, welcoming people. Would recommend this house to any large-ish group
Everybody can find their own private space in this home.
Enjoyed the pool, lake, and indoor amenities. Kids of all ages loved the basketball court.
A wonderful home!!!
Wow! We had a wonderful time enjoying all that this beautiful home had to offer as well as the surrounding area. The amenities of the house were perfect for our family and guests. The proximity to stores, restaurants, and all that France Street had to offer was perfect. When we visit MN next time we would love to stay here again!
Thank you to the owners for making it such an easy and special stay. Owners list / suggestion for the chef, butler, and masseuses made it that much more luxurious. Cheers!
