About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

Cable and WiFi included!!! ONE WEEK MINIMUM reservation Memorial Day weekend thru Labor Day weekend. Now more ACCESSIBLE! Seasonal pricing applies!!! Check out our new pictures!

Imagine basking under the sun or stars while relaxing on the second story deck overlooking Beyers Cove with family and friends. The setting sun ignites the Western sky with fire tones and the first of dozens of shooting stars streak 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 stone fireplace, especially if someone 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 addition, 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 downstairs bedrooms (1 full and four queens) sharing a full bath.

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 about 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. Or take one or both of the kayaks out for a paddle around the cove.

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, Mascoutin or Tuscumbia country clubs.

For a day of family fun, the Wisconsin Dells are only 40 miles west of us and 40 miles to the east and a little north is Oshkosh home to the Experimental Aviation Association (EAA) and its August, airshow fly-in. You'll also find great outlet malls, cinema theaters and the Cornerstone Christian Lifefest in Oshkosh.

We're ideally situated for Fall fun. Local farms are full of pumpkins, apples, and corn stalks. Trees blaze with color and the cool crisp air makes an ideal setting from mid-September thru 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 sleeps 12 guests in beds.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: Candy and I have been married since 1974 and have two grown, married children and five grandchildren. I spent 26 years in business and transitioned to pastoral ministry in 1999. Now I coach men and women in business in faith based leadership and culture. We love being outdoors, reading, writing, biking, hiking and eating with family and friends. We love people and we love Jesus.

Why the Owner Chose Green Lake, WI, USA:
Green Lake is beautiful. It is not overcrowded as are some other lakes closer to metropolitan areas. We felt God led us here and and dedicated it to rest and physical, mental and spiritual restoration. In 1995 we were able to build the home you see today on the site of the original hunting cottage.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have prayed for God's shalom to be present with its renewing and refreshing power. Many people have told us how relaxed they have been while vacationing at our home.
