Hey Owners,

Your place was perfect! Everyone loved it! The Lake House is beautiful! So many great things. The big yard to the games in the Lodge, WOW. We are so grateful and appreciative! You out did yourself in making sure we were ok. Thanks for all your hard work and being just a phone call away. I loved working with you. So appreciate your patience for all of the million questions. I know I can be a little overly detailed. I've told many people so maybe you will get more takers.

Thanks again,

Our annual family reunion at Powers Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a great 4day Labor Day weekend at this wonderful and charming property. It is filled with character! Nine adults, ages 39-79, and nine children, ages 2 - 14, had plenty of room for outdoor avtivities and indoor games. We stayed in the Lodge. It had a fully equipped kitchen and so much room for the many game tables . Our two yr old grandson loved playing on the big stage. We all spent each day on the spacious pier or in the water. Water was so clean and warm! All the kids loved the raft, paddle boat and our son in law's boat provided knee board,water ski and many other water activities for the adults and kids. Our favorite times for our Italian family were around the super large table sharing a meal. We created great memories at Powers lake ar this beautiful Lodge. Thanks to Jerry for his love and care of these unique homes : the Lodge, the Cottage and the Lake home.

Beautiful property; needs more organization

  • 4 of 5

The property is beautiful, the rental had lots of room for our large extended family. Nice fire pit, playground for the little ones, and we all loved playing in the lake and taking the pontoon out. We had a very nice stay. However, the property could be better maintained. There was only one extra roll of toilet paper left for us in the whole property, we had to call for more. The light switches in the main lodge (of which there were dozens), need to be labeled so renters can tell what they're for. Also, there should be better organization in the kitchen so we could find important things like dish rags, etc. which were hidden away and it took lots of searching to find. There were lots of games in the game room which was awesome, but we didn't find the pool cues (which were in a weird spot) until it was almost time to leave!

Overall, we loved the location, the view, and the space and had a great weekend!

Great Party House!

  • 5 of 5

We had another wonderful stay at the Lodge. Everything was in great working order, clean, and ready for the fun to begin. Lots of space for cooking and serving large groups. Used the firepit, hung out on the dock, played games and enjoyed it all. Close to golf, shopping, and 10 minutes to live music and great restaurants. Jerry is great to work with, and very accommodating. Will definitely return~!

Best Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We chose this house for our family of 12 adults and 7 children under the age of 7. It was perfect for each one of us. The house is beautifully furnished and immaculate with ample space to gather in large groups or small ones or for time alone. All items in the house are top quality and well maintained. The grounds are meticulously landscaped. There was nothing we wanted that was not supplied--even toys for the young ones. The water platform the hammock, the swing set and fishing was awesome. Tubing was the favorite of the little ones. In the evening, we played pool and board games. After dark, we gathered around the fire pit for talking and roasting marshmallows. This is definitely a five star destination. It is luxurious and comfortable. I highly recommend this property. Jerry, this is an amazing property! Thanks for sharing.

Four Families

  • 5 of 5

You were right, it was the perfect spot for family; grandparents, parents, and grandchildren. All four families had plenty of sleeping space, more than enough kitchen to prepare the meals and so many activities on the property that we did not leave, but twice. Next year, we will try to rent three boats. That way everyone can do his thing..everyday. My 13 year old grandson caught his first bass and his five year old brother caught a crappie. The best thing is everyone was able to do what he or she wanted, yet we were able to share a lot of activities. These two grandparents are still smiling and we have a scrapbook of memories.

Cousin Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful hideaway with our families. I would not have guessed that a property so close to Chicago would offer so many amenities, we didn't even need to leave to buy supplies! Mary was thrilled when she learned that River Valley Mushroom Farm was only a mile or so away. She bought five kinds of mushrooms one day and had a feast. The fishing was excellent and the water impeccably clean. We were all sorry we did not have another week. It was the perfect place for the cousins to share a bit of summer.
