"We were seeking an alternative to the small-town motel lodging options in Whitewater, and found the Bembenek property. The owners have gone to great length to anticipate the renter's needs, and it shows. It is a lovely property with some fun features. The fire pit overlooks the lake; lots of nice dry pine. KItchen supplies, soaps, games, tea, coffee. It's all here. The house sits in the woods, about 40 feet above lake level. The dock is sturdy for fishing or leg dangling, but the stairs down are not really disabled accessible. There are advantages to the elevation; good breezes and lower humidity, for two. Tip top condition, well equipped kitchen, modern bathrooms. The internet access is sufficient for email, but don't expect to stream netflix; go out on the deck and enjoy the view instead. A gas barbeque on the deck overlooking the lake and table with umbrella and chairs augment the kitchen; stop at Sentry in Whitewater and buy stuff to have a cookout! All the 5-star ratings are real; a fine rental."

"Great place for a guys weekend! Myself and 6 friends had a great time here! The kitchen was well equipped so it cut down on the amount of stuff we needed to bring. The openness of the living room and kitchen was nice with having a big group of friends. Would definitely come back!"

"Where else can you get 11 girls together in one house all scrapbooking together yet still with plenty of other room to do your own thing? we are not sure we would want to sit in the basement with no windows on a beautiful summer day but it worked out perfect for us to scrapbook for 3 days when the weather was crummy. we had 9 girls scrapbooking on the computer all weekend and never ran into any trouble with the Internet!!
We are definitely going to book again"

"Just returned from the lake today. The lake house is just as portrayed in its pictures. It is very homey with comfortable beds and furniture. We brought our own boat. The public ramp was close by and easy to use. I tried the kayak and loved it! (I think there is one in my near future!) Husband and brother in law went golfing at Prairie Hills. Fishing was not very good while we were there but my husband caught 2 crappie. We floated in the lake for long lengths of time on the warm sunny days. The sand bottom felt great!! ... not rocky and my 89yr old dad loved his afternoon dips in the lake. We filled up water jugs everyday at the artesian well and it is the best water I have ever had!!! My mom (who has mobility problems) was also with us. With help, my mom was able to get out to the deck and enjoy the fresh air. She probably could have made it down to the beach with help but was content on the deck. The lake was busy with boaters on Sunday but other than that you might see one or two boats a day. Construction just began on a house up the street on Tuesday so there was noise from that, but that can't be helped and is just temporary. I could not believe this gem is only 55 minutes from my home!! I felt like I was far away!! I absolutely LOVED this place and so did my family!! There is no internet there which was a big plus in my book!! We are already talking about hopefully returning next year! Thank you Sullivan's for sharing your lake house with us!!!!"
