Green Lake house description

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. This home is situated on 62 ft. of Green Lake frontage and an expansive flat yard. If you’re adventurous cozy up near the outdoor fire pit along the shoreline. Five stone steps lead to the 5’ x 50’ dock, where you can lounge or fish off the custom bench at the end of the pier. 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.

There are many wonderful things to do during the winter season including: snowmobiling, ice fishing, sledding, skating and skiing. During the summer this area of Big Green Lake offers the best swimming area around with comfortable depths and sandy bottom - great for swimming and deep enough for virtually any size water craft.

To add to the relaxing experience of anyone using our home, we have included many extra amenities for your comfort & convenience, including:

• Welcome Booklet: containing many useful maps and brochures on the many shops and restaurants in Green Lake & Princeton to help you investigate and experience our quaint community firsthand.
• Coffee, condiments, and a variety of teas, and assortment of single-use

toiletries in each bathroom closet, plus a first aid kit in the main floor bathroom.

Now let’s take you inside our home….2,500 square feet of remodeled living space welcomes your family, friends and guests. Step into the expansive Kitchen, Dining, and eat-at bar perfect for preparing that early morning breakfast or barbeque dinner. Off to the side in a cozy corner, you can curly up with a hot cup of coffee in one of the 2 wing back chairs overlooking the expansive family room. New stainless steel appliances add an upscale ambiance to this gourmet kitchen, while the knotty pine cabinet’s and granite island and a touch of warmth. Custom knotty pine cabinetry, granite counter tops give this country kitchen character and charm. Service for 13 includes ceramic dishes, small appliances (coffee pot, blender, crock pot, mixer and toaster), cutlery, stainless steel utensils, pots and pans, and many kitchen ‘extras’ are stocked for ease-free entertaining. In the mornings, a stocked supply of coffee to help wake up our guests.

The laundry room off the kitchen includes custom tiling, washer/dryer, deep soaking sink plus an iron and ironing board for any touch ups during your stay.
