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

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

For an additional rental charge; a new sport pontoon boat w/ 150 hp engine set up for tubing, wake-boarding and water sking, a 25' water trampoline, two- 2 man kayaks.

                        Great property for larger groups. The home was better than we expected.... kitchen was fully stocked with anything you would need from large serving trays to pots/pans toaster, utensils, coffee maker, plates and glass wear.. Great double oven!! For outdoor activities we rented the pontoon boat and kayaks and that was a lot of fun. besides water activities there is badminton, volley ball, bags, pool table, board games or just sit by the shore and enjoy the view from any one of the 2 fire pits. (lots of fire wood available) The owners were very helpful in answering all of our questions in a timely manner. The day of our arrival the property manager greeted us and showed us around the property. The house was clean and well organized just like in the photos. The grounds were nicer than we expected; the photos don't do it justice. I would definitely recommend this property to any one looking to have a great time with larger group.

                        Recommended for: Adventure seekers, sightseeing, age 55+, families with teenagers, families with young children, girls getaway.

                        We have 16 people in our extended family and have been searching for the perfect home to have our annual holiday gathering for several years. We have finally found it!!! Nancy and John are fabulous to work with and their wonderful home is warm and inviting. The beds are very comfortable and the home's seven large bedrooms and four bathrooms, is exactly what we were looking for. The kitchen has plenty of dishes and amenities, just like at home. The three large common areas are fantastic and provided enough space for the grand kids and the adults to hang out together and separately. We can't wait to come back! Thank you Nancy and John for sharing your fabulous home with us. Barb Groves and Family

                        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.

                        Dear Mr. and Mrs Economou, What a delightful time our family had this past week. We were "4" arms of this family - Florida, Rhode Island, New Jersey and Wisconsin. We ranged from 3 to 76 years of age, and good time was had by all. We especially enjoyed the water activities - and the great weather you kindly provided!! The lovely house was spacious and had so many areas for different groups to spend time either together or peaceful alone. Thank you!

Great to have such a wonderful setting - the lake and the land were beautiful! The setting even inspired an engagement over the weekend. Thank you,

                        Thank you for the use of your beautiful home. My parents and four brothers (and their kids) truly enjoyed a wonderful weekend together. Upon arrival, one of the kids discovered the ring game and one by one all 21 of us became members of the "ring club" We laughed and sang together - the kids put on a talent show for the adults. Your home put us right at home and will always remember the fun and fellowship shared here. Thank you, The Frobish Family

                        We recently enjoyed a large family gathering at this lovely lake house. There were 9 adults, 2 teens, and 5 little children, but there was plenty of space for everyone to relax, enjoy activities, sleep and play. Each floor has an excellent gathering space. We especially enjoyed drinking our morning coffee and taking in the gorgeous sunrises on the lovely screened porch. In the evenings, we enjoyed conversation around the cozy fire in the sitting room. The children had plenty of space to play, color pictures, drive rc cars, explore. Our family really loved canoeing on the lake and feeding the fish. We also enjoyed the wildlife, appreciating the family of swans in the waters nearby and a beautiful blue heron. The guys had fun throwing the football in the front yard on several occasions. Several family members enjoyed taking walks and jogs and riding bikes on the neighborhood roads. The kitchen was spacious enough to accommodate our cooking needs, and we nearly filled all the fridges. If there were downsides, they were that the main table wasn't quite large enough to accommodate our entire family at once (which we were able to work around) and the basement bedroom could be noisy in the evening when people were walking and talking in the sitting room upstairs. We were very satisfied with our stay and our vacation experience, and we are very thankful to have been granted the opportunity to stay at this nice lake house.

                        Recommended for: Adventure seekers, sightseeing, age 55+, romantic getaway, families with teenagers, families with young children, girls getaway.
