House, 4 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
clean and comfortable
This house is a well maintained, clean and comfortable house in a great location.
The owner was very easy to work with and accommodating
We had a wonderful vacation in this sweet cottage! My husband and I, our three adult
kids and their partners, and our 18 month old granddaughter stayed here. The place was
nice and clean, the kitchen well furnished, and the porch was such a treat. It has a nice big yard for lawn games and is located right across the street from Green Lake and about a quarter mile from Hattie Sherwood Campgrounds.
The price was very reasonable compared to other places I looked. I highly recommend staying here!
Well Kept and a great location
This house was a neat, well kept property across the street from Green Lake with lake views from the porch and front yard. It came fairly well equipped with adequate kitchen functionality but no towels. It is a bit tight, but we made do just fine. The location is very good to town, and a fine marina (Action) is close by and Byron goes out of his way to take care of his customers and is an excellent short term boat situation which I would recommend and use again. The owner of this house is very off putting with a long list of restrictions and requests for his guests which make one feel like he is doing me a favor staying at his place. He is not nearby, so must be scared if something is not right, he is far removed. On top of this, he has a VERY restrictive checkout policy which wants you out at 10:00 on the day of departure. While he made it very clear, we had a family of 8 and while trying to enjoy our last day and get ready to leave, we were not able to get out until 11:00 and were charged for it. I have traveled to many locales in the last 40+ years and rented multiple houses and never had someone charge me for an hour "late" checkout. Not surprised that this owner lacked grace, giving the list of rules and regs, so beware.
This renter left the home in the poorest condition in all my 8+ years of renting. And note in renter's feedback he stated home was neat and well equipped. Since I only have a 4 hour window to clean for next renter, late checkout creates a problem. Especially when I have cleaning people there waiting to clean. They have to be paid for their time and rushing for the next tenant. By the way the charge was $50.00. Rules were such things as:
Put the key back in the lockbox.
Don't overload the washer
Try to give the flowers a little water.
Close the windows on the front porch if rain is possible.
Recycle, Two separate containers and bags provided.
Take nice fabric table cloth off when dining and use the vinyl one underneath when dining.
Use throw on couch to protect it from morning sun.
If these are restrictive, it's much less restrictive than the vacation rentals I have stayed in.
This is the only negative review (One less than 5 stars) we have ever had. Possibly it's the $50.00 late checkout fee renter is trying to justify?
we recently rented this charming home near downtown Green Lake....Everything was perfect...the cottage is spacious and very well maintained....we spent our evenings on the front porch with lake views...we could not have been happier with our choice....the owners were very easy to work with....very prompt with replies....we will definately return !
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!
We had a wonderful family reunion weekend in a very accommodating, neat and clean cottage. We especially appreciated the screened in front porch! We hope to be back!
