Property description

Enjoy a relaxing retreat to the peaceful scenery of Potter's Lake, a 162 acre scenic lake that offers something for everyone. In the Summer, enjoy swimming, fishing (daily / weekly fishing license at Mukwanago Sport), paddle boating and canoeing, or relaxing on the pier reading a book or floating on a raft with a friend. In the Winter, enjoy the outdoors with skiing (Alpine Valley), snowmobiling (bring yours - perfect size lake), and ice fishing.

This 3 bedroom/2 full bathroom lakefront home sits high above the lakeshore with beautiful views of the lake from every room. The scenic deck on the hillside offers another place of sanctuary or to share a drink with a friend while watching the sunset. In the evenings, enjoy a dinner or a cocktail in the screened porch.

This location also benefits from its close proximity to golf (5 minutes away), scenic hiking or mountain biking at Kettle Moraine National Park (20 minutes away), snow skiing/snowboarding and outdoor concerts at Alpine Valley Resort (10 minutes away).

Location

Car: Recommended

Alpine Valley Ski Resort and Concert Park is 10 minutes away. Kettle Moraine National Park is 20 minutes away -great for hiking and mountain biking. Sky diving is 5 minutes away. For kids, Green Meadows petting zoo is a lot of fun (look for a Groupon for discounted tickets).

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I was raised in Janesville, WI and graduated from the University of WI-Madison. I enjoy everything Wisconsin offers and really wanted a family vacation home not far from our home in IL that offered all the fundamentals of enjoying the outdoors. Potter's Lake gives me everything and more to step out of the fast-paced corporate sales career that I have worked in for 13 years.

Why the Owner Chose East Troy:
East Troy is within driving distance of our home, it is easy to get to and from. It is not a crowded lake and perfect for our family to make memories and learn about boating, waterskiing and snow mobiling. We also like the location to enjoy Alpine Valley, Old World Wisconsin and Kettle Moraine.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We enjoy fun filled sunny days on the lake then sharing memories during bonfires and smores in the evenings. We have also enjoyed Ivan's on the Square (East Troy) for dinners out. The location is not far from Milwaukee (30 min) - we had a great time cheering on the Chicago Bulls against the Bucks at the Bradley Center! Love the concerts in the summer and skiing in the winter at nearby Alpine Valley.
