Green Lake cottage description

You are invited to share our summer home which is located just steps from the shores of Green Lake. This cottage offers all the comforts of home in a wooded retreat setting. Its spacious great room provides individual spaces for reading, playing games, or watching TV. The kitchen is fully furnished. This 4 bedroom home can accommodate up to 10 people. The two downstairs bedrooms have queen size beds. Each upstairs bedroom has a double bed and a twin bed.

Catch a fish from your own private pier. Sun bathe on its large deck or enjoy a refreshing swim.

Experience nature at its best! View breathtaking sunsets. Watch the clear night sky come alive with the brilliance of stars - even an occasional display of northern lights. Roast marshmallows over a crackling campfire. Listen to the night calls of the birds, the chirping of crickets, and hear water lapping at the shore.

                          Owner info

                          About the owner: We are the primary caretakers of this family owned home and have realized our goal to live at Green Lake. We have retired from teaching and providing computer services. With help from our son and daughter-in-law we are privileged to maintain this property. It is a hands-on project, and satisfaction comes from comments from our renters - 'comfortable and clean'. Although we don't live in the cottage, we are close enough to help if needed but not to interfere.

                          Why the Owner Chose Green Lake:
                          This is a home that has been in our family since the early 1900s. The original vacation home on this land was the historic 'Windmill Cottage' - a cottage with a working windmill atop a three story structure. That building has been replaced by our four bedroom home 'Hidden Treasure.' It has been a summer place for our family since the 1950s. It has provided many fond memories for us and we hope that your time spent here be the highlight of your summer experiences.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          We love being near the water and the scenic beauty of the lake, but we also enjoy the rich variety of wildlife which come to our yard - song birds, water fowl, wild turkeys, and deer. Early mornings are special times when we enjoy a steaming cup of coffee on the pier and watch the mist rise off the still waters of Green Lake.
