"Owner Suzie was very easy to work with. This was a getaway weekend for a group of ladies and all of our expectations were met! The location is very quiet as you are on a small Peninsula at the tip. Sitting on the deck was almost like being on a boat and when that got too hot in the sun, we moved to the beautiful sun dappled yard We had everything we needed in the kitchen. It looked like the fishermen loved fishing right off the edge of our dock."

"We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage, which is really a very cozy home and fully equipped. The owners are very accommodating and helpful, and the price is excellent for the area. The lake was perfect just like the weather for our ten day stay. Fishing was a bit slow, but it was still fun to be out in the boat provided or to just sit on the pier to fish. Having two grills to choose from was an extra plus. Burlington is a very nice town, quite scenic, with a lot to offer, or you can just relax & enjoy the cottage. We did bicycle the Seven Waters bike trail down the street from Riverside Park, which is a free and very peaceful activity. Thank you again Neal and Marilyn, for providing this homey retreat. We hope to return again in the future to enjoy another "quiet time" on Brown's Lake!"

"Our family of 6 stayed at this property for 10 days in July 2015. We enjoyed the yard, the beautiful view of the lake, the screened porch (loved watching a big thunderstorm roll through one afternoon from the screened porch!!) and the new outdoor patio area and large gas grill. The house was clean. We rented their pontoon boat during our entire stay and cruised the lake several times during our stay... life jackers and a few floating chairs/rafts included. Powers Lake is crystal clear and the water temp was perfect!! The dock w/ the chairs was great for those who wanted some sun and there is plenty of shade in the large lake front yard. We brought some yard games and spent many hours outside. The beds/bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen (well stocked with ample dishes, pans, etc. - bring a sharp knife though if you are really cooking!!) and laundry room worked out great. They even offered us any paper products, dish soap, etc. in the house... which was great if we ran out of what we brought on the last few days!! There are plenty of bathroom and beach towels. Several nice grocery stores are within an easy 15 minute drive. Lake Geneva is close by if you want to venture there for lunch/shopping/sight seeing... it's a beautiful little town to spend the day. We hired a college student down the lake who took our kids out on the lake to tube/wakeboard/ski on several days... that was a huge bonus for us!! The pontoon boat would be great for younger kids though and the owners even furnished a tube and rope for us to use if we wanted it... and they had a row boat that we used!! The lake is no-wake until 10am which allows for a nice quiet morning by the lake to fish (bring your own fishing equipment!) or just enjoy a cup of coffee. The nights were peaceful for sleeping... we never turned the air conditioning on as the breeze throughout the house was wonderful. The neighbors were friendly and we didn't feel like we were on top of each other at all... hardly noticed them with plenty of space to spread out. The internet/wifi/tv worked great. The property is easy to find. The owners were very responsive with questions and gave us a quick tour of the property when we got there. Bring your swimsuits, sunscreen and food and you are set for a great family or couples trip!! We would highly recommend Powers Lake and this property!!"
