About Ron

Your hosts, Ron, Nanci and son Kyle.

Ron purchased this house in 2004

Why Ron chose Green Lake

Spectacular lake and area. Milwaukee, Madison and Green Bay are all within a two hour drive. Not a tourist trap town like Lake Geneva or the Dells. Lake is never crowded which we like for safer boating. Boat rentals are available at two marinas and one off lake site.

Daily and weekly boat slips are also available should you want to bring your own boat and not have to launch each day.

What makes this house unique

Great golf and other recreation all in our backyard. Hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, water skiing, dining and more. Town and surrounding area have activities most every weekend from the Pajama party on Summer solstice to the International Chili Cookoff.

Tons of fun in a quiet town. Great lakeside parks and beaches too.

Great Location

Wonderful place, within easy walking distance of Green Lake. In addition, the house is very clean and well equipped. Our favorite spot was sitting out on the screened in porch. Highly recommend this location!

Great Place for Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were lucky enough to be able to spend the 4th of July holiday in this comfy home! The home had all we needed, was spacious and comfortable. The front porch was the best part, for relaxing times with a lake view. Green Lake is a peaceful treasure, boating nearby, Nortons across the street, it was great. We were able to watch the amazing fireworks show from a boat on the lake! A great family getaway for all ages. Owner was accommodating and responsive. We will be back!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had wonderful stay in this pleasant and cleaned rental home in Green Lake for a week. The view of the Green Lake from the living room and porch was so lovely. We had a bonfire in the big backyard on the fourth of July and then watched the fabulous fireworks. We all the family went for a boat ride, tubing, jet skiing and swimming. We had so much fun! Also we went to Dodge Park Beach two times in a week. We had 7 nights stayed and the entire time was so relaxing and enjoying. We hope we can come back again.

family friendly, clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay in this well appointed clean Green Lake home. We found it to be very child friendly and equally comfortable for adults. The living areas are very nicely decorated and functional. The couches were comfortable, carpeting clean, beds comfortable and with good support. The sleeping areas really accomodated our family of 8 well, including two babies. The kitchen was extremely well equipped. We also truly enjoyed the screen porch. THe upstairs sitting area was a really nice plus that we didn't expect, above and beyond the two bedrooms upstairs. THe house seems really well built and insulated noise well between bedrooms. We would highly recommend this home to others looking to stay in the Green Lake area. Communication with the owners was prompt and questions were clearly answered.
