Welcome to Blackbird Manor ~ our all-inclusive home on the south shore of Green Lake, the deepest natural lake in Wisconsin!
Our home has been completely renovated with modern conveniences and brand new construction throughout the interior, from solid hardwood cypress flooring, knotty pine ceilings, and wrought iron fixtures to granite surfaces. We designed our home with family entertainment in mind. On the lakeside you can enjoy the panoramic views of the water from the deck while relaxing on the woven wicker outdoor living room set.

Swimming and rafting are enjoyable with the perfect water depth of 4-5 ft. off the end of the pier. Enjoy the sandy bottom shorelines for snorkeling on those calmer days. If you have a large boat or pontoon, no worries we provide a 5,000 lb boat lift available for your use during your stay.
