About the property

Rent the entire house which sleeps 16, or the 5 or 3 bedroom sections.

Deer Path is a large, luxurious home on Green Lake, in South Central Wisconsin. It is located on the grounds of the Green Lake Conference Center, on the north shore of the lake, with 200 feet of shoreline.

Green Lake is the deepest lake in Wisconsin, seven miles long and two miles wide. It is a great lake for sailing, boating, fishing, waterskiing and swimming. The beautiful lot is partly wooded for privacy. It has a gently sloping lawn right down to the edge of the water. There is plenty of room for yard games and lounging. The private dock has a boat lift, and there is a small sandy beach. From the large deck running across the front of the house, there is a gorgeous view of the lake. Plenty of seating makes the deck a favorite place for relaxing and enjoying a meal.

The house is exceptionally furnished, and air-conditioned for your comfort. The great room has a cathedral ceiling, a large stone fireplace, plenty of comfortable seating, a piano, CD player, and well stocked bookshelves. Adjoining is the dining area with a table that seats up to 16.

The kitchen is completely up to date, and has top of the line appliances, including two Kitchenaid dishwashers, two sinks, a Kitchenaid range with gas burners & electric oven, an Amana refrigerator, and a microwave oven. All that is needed for food preparation and serving is amply provided, including dishes, glassware, silverware, serving pieces, cooking utensils, small appliances, and baking needs, even a supply of spices.

The bedrooms are tastefully decorated, and are designed for flexibility for sleeping arrangements. There are two master bedrooms with queen beds and private baths. Four bedrooms have two twin beds each, some of which can be made into king beds. One of the bedrooms on the top level has three twin beds, and the other has two sets of built-in bunks.

The lower level has an additional living room and kitchen. There is a large flat screen HDTV, DVD and VCR players, and shelves full of books and games.

Close to the house is the Lawsonia Golf Course, named in 2008 as the best public course in Wisconsin. It has two eighteen-hole courses. The original Links Course has open fairways, edged by native grasses, and large elevated greens. The Woodland Course meanders through the woods, with some lovely views of the lake.

About Edie Johnston

Our extended family has come together for vacations for almost 50 years. We built Deer Path in 1981, to insure that we could continue this tradition. Now we have a fourth generation who cherish the time we have together, just as we did at the beginning. We are happy to share this place with groups who think of it as a very special place.

Edie Johnston purchased this house in 1981

What makes this house unique

Deer Path is located on the grounds of the Green Lake Conference Center, an 1100 acre facility for year round conferences. The house is in a private setting, but close to the facilities, including the 36 hole award winning Golf Courses of Lawsonia

Great Lake Home for a Group!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Deer Path was outstanding! What a blessing for the owners to have such a great getaway!

We held our family reunion at Deer Path with 16 people. My family loved the accommodations provided. Everyone was "wowed". We have been holding our reunion for 20 years and have stayed at lake properties in western Wisconsin and Door County. This one is the best yet. The grounds were beautiful with ample space for lawn games and socializing. The place was clean, lovely and spacious. The kitchens were stocked with most any utensil, plate, pot or serving bowl you might need for a group. They thought of everything for a comfortable stay.

It was so nice to even receive a call from Edie the morning after arrival to make sure we had everything we needed.

Thanks again for sharing your lake home for a memorable family weekend!!!

We celbrated my daugher's 40th birthday there, and had a wonderful time. We were 4 adult couples, ages 26-68, and 5 children, ages 2-10. The home accomodated us very nicely, with three bedrooms to spare.

The owners are wonderful hosts. Everything was as advertized and better: the house, the grounds, the access to the lake, the amenities... .
