Green Lake house description
We invite you to enjoy our beautiful, spacious, year-round home on the North Shore of Green Lake. A popular vacation destination, the town of Green Lake is within easy walking distance from our house, but far enough away for you to enjoy the privacy our property affords. Green Lake is Wisconsin's deepest inland lake and provides ample opportunities for great fishing and water sports. Bustling in the summer, Green Lake is a serene and picturesque get-away spot for fall, winter and spring as well.
We have a private pier. Should you bring or rent a boat, we have a shore station (boat lift) to keep your boat safely out of the water when not in use. The large, gently sloping front lawn is perfect for a variety of yard games... croquet and bean bags are our personal favorites.
Built in the early 1900's, the house, named 'White Oaks,' was significantly damaged by a fire in 1995 and was rebuilt in 1997. The house now features vintage charm with a number of features from the old house combined with modern conveniences.
The highlight of the house is the original wrap-around screened-in porch. The porch itself is huge (over 800 square feet) and is a perfect spot to relax on one of the gliders or lounge chairs and enjoy the lake breeze anytime of day, or for an al fresco dinner on the large outdoor table.
Inside, the five bedrooms provide bed space for 14, with additional sleeping space on pull out couches. Four bedrooms are upstairs and each feature either a bathroom or sink for increased privacy. In the basement, a six person bunk room is a perfect retreat for the kids. The captions for the pictures of each bedroom describe the bed configurations.
The basement features a large recreation room with ping-pong, foosball and other games. A large flat screen TV has a DVD/VCR for watching movies at night. We don't have cable or satellite, because, let's face it, you aren't coming here to watch TV, you are here for the lake!
Upstairs, a large eat-in kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, cookware, and flat ware, as well as common appliances such as coffee makers. The kitchen opens to a large dining room with a piano and loft overhead.
If you are a golfer, there are several excellent golf courses nearby including Tuscumbia and Lawsonia. Other activities nearby include bowling, miniature golf, and a movie theater (located in downtown Ripon), just in case you have a day where the weather isn't cooperating.
Whether you are looking for a golf vacation, a week of swimming and boating, or a time to relax with family or friends, we welcome you to our home. We wish we were there now!

Year Purchased: 1947
About the owner: The Phillip family has owned White Oaks since the late 1940's. Now in the second generation of ownership, we use the house as a family retreat from our busy lives in Chicago and make it available for rental when we can't be there.
Why the Owner Chose Green Lake:
The house was built in the early 1900's by a family who currently owns the house next door to ours. Our family bought it from the original owner in the late 1940's and has owned it ever since. The house was largely damaged by a fire in 1995, and was rebuilt over the following two years. We enjoy the town of Green Lake and all the activities that the lake provides. Green Lake is just far enough from Chicago to be a real vacation, but close enough for a quick weekend get-away.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
At the lake, we love to spend time on the water--swimming, boating, water skiing and tubing. As kids, we enjoyed many days of fishing with Dad/Grandpa. Those who enjoy golfing frequent Lawsonia and Tuscumbia golf courses--Tuscumbia was actually designed by our relative Tom Bendelow who designed over 600 golf courses in North America. In the warmer months, we enjoy reading on the porch--listening to the sounds of the lake and the singing of the birds. In the cooler months, we enjoy evenings by the gas fireplace in the living room--playing card and board games, or playing charades.
