Green Lake house description
NOW WITH FREE WiFi!!! Imagine basking under the sun or stars while relaxing on the second story deck overlooking Beyers Cove with your family and friends. The setting sun has ignited the sky ablaze to your left and the first of dozens of shooting stars streaks across the sky. Seriously!
You will be staying in a beautiful 2 story custom built (1995), 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, home that has given our family many wonderful memories. There is nothing like listening to your favorite music while in front of a crackling fireplace, especially if somone has just made a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies in the fully equipped kitchen. Two large gathering rooms provide great spaces for your family and friends to relax in or play a fun game of ping-pong together. In addtion, you can choose from our collection of family friendly DVDs for a fun night of movies and popcorn or play Mario Bros. on the Wii.
With the master bedroom suite on the first floor (queen)including its own private bath, parents can have a quiet evening upstairs with the kids in one of the three other bedrooms (1 single and three doubles) sharing a full bath located downstairs.
As you exit the walk-out lower level toward the water you'll find the campfire pit, picnic table and dock. Bass and pan fish lurk along the rocks of the 70 foot shoreline while turtles and frogs jump back into the water when they see you coming.
There are a few bicycles in the 2 1/2 car garage, so think of exploring the back country roads. A large Amish community is just a few miles to the south and west of our home. Their bakeries, stores, shops and farms take you back into another time.
Every Saturday, Princeton is home to Wisconsin's largest flea market and some of the best antique shopping in the area. Green Lake hosts the County Free Fair in August and boasts excellent dining, entertainment and golf at either Lawsonia or Tuscumbia country clubs.
For a day of family fun, the Wisconsin Dells are only 40 miles west of us and 40 miles east and a little north is Oshkosh home to the Experimental Aviation Association (EAA) and its August, airshow fly-in, Cornerstone Christian musicfest, great outlet malls and cinema theaters.
We're ideally situated for Fall fun. Local farms full of pumpkins, apples, and corn stalks, trees ablaze with color and the cool crisp air make an ideal setting for September and October.
Winter begins right outside the door, with ice-fishing, snowmobiling and cross country skiing moments away Downhill skiing at Nordic Mountain is just 30 minutes away.
The home comfortably sleep 9-12 guests.

Welcoming, Very Comfortable, Clean
Welcoming, Very Comfortable, Clean
The lake home was very welcoming and comfortable for our extended family of 9 people. The kitchen was well equipped and the Piggly Wiggly, in Princeton, had everything we needed, including vegetarian and gluten free foods. There was no TV, which was great. The yard was large for playing games and the kids caught little pan fish from the dock We enjoyed making fires in the fire pit and eating smores. There was a good selection of movies for the kids and lots of ping pong tournaments, on the table in the rec room. My daughter taught our 8 year old grandson a few songs on the piano. He now has decided he wants to take piano lessons. They now have wifi in the house, which works well, to keep the adults "connected." We rented a pontoon boat from Power Sports that was great for enjoying the lake. Our son-in-law brought his Mastercraft for wakeboarding and tubing. They had an awesome tube, "The Phantom" in the garage that was great fun. The home is in a cove, so it was perfect for keeping our boats safe at the dock. The cove is very weedy and not desirable for swimming. The sand bar in Norwegian Bay or County Park was good for swimming. The park also has a sandy beach for making sandcastles. Candy was very helpful and answered all our questions. The neighbors, Jim and Carol, were very helpful and their blind and deaf dog, Pal, was very sweet. We had a great time and would recommend this property.

Worth going back again and again
Worth going back again and again
We love this place! It is a home away from home but without the everyday life activities and chaos. It's a place of peace and relaxation where our family can reconnect. First, it is clean, comfortable and family friendly with plenty of decent movies, reading material and games (we had a family ping pong tournament-Mom won). The kitchen is spacious and open to the living room so everyone is always within conversation range. And the fireplace is so nice on chilly nights. The second thing we enjoyed about this place is being on the lake so we can go down to the dock and fish or take our boat across the lake to get some ice cream in Green Lake or do some tubing. Also, we loved taking little road trips especially to the Farmer's Market in Princeton on Sat. morning or a drive around the lake, or to our favorite restaurants, Little Corporal and The Kingston House. Finally, the owners are so friendly and gracious. We are very thankful to have had a wonderful time here and look forward to going back. I would highly recommend this vacation home to a friend or relative.

Wonderful Lake Home for a Family Gathering
Wonderful Lake Home for a Family Gathering
Enjoyed 3 nights at this Lake Home for my family reunion. Ages ranged from a 7 month old to Grandpa and Grandma in their 60's! With family coming from Colorado, Ohio and Wisconsin. There was something for everyone. We brought our own Volleyball court - the owners were very accommodating and let us set up the net in the front of the house (near the lake)...we also set up a corn hole game - so there is plenty of room for games in the front yard overlooking the lake. The description of the property and pictures are accurate. Very comfortable and accommodating! Evenings were spent playing cards in the screened-in porch or playing ping-pong in the lower level. We brought our own boat - launching the boat was easy - and not too far from their pier. The kids (and adults) enjoyed tubing on the huge lake - and then swimming at their public swimming area - which is on the other side of the lake from Lake Home. The Lake is huge and deep - we needed a few more days to explore the entire lake and everything it has to offer. The home is very comfortable, clean, nicely decorated - you can tell that the owners take very good care of their place. A neighbor welcomed us when we arrive and allowed us park our boat trailer on his lot. Owners were very helpful in answering our questions and concerns. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative. My family had a great time - I'm sure yours will too!

A relaxing week on Green Lake
A relaxing week on Green Lake
We spent a very relaxing week on Green Lake with our two adult children, daughter-in-law and granddaughter in this large, spacious home. The owner, Candy, was extremely responsive to my many emails prior to our vacation. Their home is situated steps from the water in Beyers Cove--a quiet, peaceful area of the lake. The boat dock is just minutes away. The screened-in porch was an added benefit, especially this time of year when the mosquitos are out and biting. We spent most of our time on the water fishing, swimming, tubing. We also made use of the kayaks that are provided. We spent a good deal of time out walking, just enjoying the scenery. The home is very close to Princeton so shopping is convenient. We made many runs to Piggly Wiggly for additional groceries and also spent a few hours visiting the antique shops. Cable is not provided so bring DVD's with you. Wi-fi is also unavailable so no working while you are there! All in all we tremendously enjoyed our stay. Thanks Candy for a great vacation!

Why the Owner Chose Green Lake:
Green Lake is beautiful. It is not overcrowded as are some other lakes closer to metropolitan areas.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have prayed for God's peace to be present with its renewing and refreshing power. Many people have told us how relaxed they have been while vacationing at our home.
