Beautiful Lakefront Log Home!
average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews

Perfect space for large families

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful! We rented it for two weeks and loved every minute (once our thighs adjusted to the many stairs leading to the lake!) The log home is spacious and comfortable and the sun room in the main house, the lower level game area, and the separate boathouse provided perfect spaces particularly on rainy days (we had a few major storms during our stay). The house had 2 kayaks which we made excellent use of during no-wake hours on the lake before 10 a.m. or after dusk. There is also a paddle boat. The kids loved swimming and fishing off the pier (shallow, clear water), and the many sizes of boat shoes in the boat house were a welcome relief from the rocky bottom. The lake gets very busy on the weekends and it's patrolled. Both my nephews got tickets for having their jet skis too close to each other during peak time on the lake (you must maintain 100 feet, which gets a little tricky when it's crowded--pay attention--they don't cut you any slack and the tickets are $110 each). Lots of parking in front and a large yard for all sorts of games. The water in the main house showers smells like sulphur, but there's a water cooler for drinking/cooking. We had to call to get more water delivered from Culligan. There's only one recycling bin on the property and it was full when we arrived and the pick-up is every two weeks so we left it full for the next guests (sorry!). The house is well provisioned for a one-week stay, but if you're there longer, you'll probably need to bring/buy extra garbage bags; dish, dishwasher and laundry soap, bleach, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. Lots of near-by shopping though. The large kitchen is well stocked with just about everything you could need.The gas stove might have a little leak--it smelled like gas even when the burners were off. There's a small beverage fridge in the boathouse but there's no bathroom down there so be prepared to do some stair climbing to find relief! You'll find lots of treasures in the lower boathouse--there are extra dock chairs, umbrellas, tables, floats, toys, tools--just about everything you might need/want. This house and grounds were fantastic and we created some truly spectacular memories with our family. We loved our stay at Rustic Waters and look forward to coming back for another visit.

We were a group of 12 over New Year's and everyone was very comfortable. This one of a kind dream log home is truly turn-key. It has all the amenities you could want to enjoy a long monthly vacation or easy one week getaway. The high beam ceiling, natural stone fireplace and open stair create the spectacular "wow" when you first step in. The kitchen is very spacious and accommodating for large gatherings. One bedroom has a ladder up to a loft which the kids think is really cool. The five full bedrooms and four full bathrooms allow everyone their own comfortable and quiet place to retreat. The home is impeccably clean and well cared for. Adults and kids can enjoy the pool table, dart board, big screen TV or simply relax on big tree swing that overlooks the lake. I like taking walks along the pathway around the lake. Another unique feature on this property is the awesome boathouse that offers another area to have fun and watch those sunset views on Powers lake. There are many year round activities to be enjoyed by all. I can't think of anything I would change about this very special vacation home. I absolutely love coming here.

What a spectacular home! It has everything you need and is very clean. The 5 bedrooms are spacious and there are 4 full bathrooms. The kitchen is large and has everything you need to cook for your family and friends. The boat house is a great gathering place. The older kids used it to sleep in. They loved it! We rented a pontoon and wave runner right from Uncle Eds who is on Powers lake and made using the homes pier a perfect situation. I do not have a negative thing to say. An absolutely great vacation and family reunion . THANK YOU

Outstanding log home --

  • 5 of 5

Just spent one week at this home and it was fabulous. A great retreat for a family get together and plenty of room for all. You can spend all day in the water, and relax in the evenings on the deck. The kitchen was terrific and if you are a cook it has all that you need. Several living spaces for privacy. The views are second to none and plenty of activities for everyone from golf to shopping in Lake Geneva less than 10 minutes away. I would recommend this for anyone. Even though it is only one hour and 15 from Chicago - it felt like we were a million miles away. The only negative is that we had to go home...

One of my favorite vacation places to spend w/ family

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this lakefront home twice. I would highly recommend this place. I believe this is one of my favorite vacation spots for our family. This home is unbelivably superb in every way. It is also large enough to accomadate our large family of ten. This is such a lovely and warm home for any age group. I am still in awe at the very large kitchen, comfortable sleeping quarters and spectacular great room - so perfect and comfortable for everyone. The lake front property has beautiful views. The boat house and dock area are terrific as well. Both places offer great views of any activities such as the sailboat races or watching boats pass by. Swimming and boating is a lot of fun here at this lake. My only complaint is that I did not have more than one week to spend there each time I visited this place - truly.
