Great week with the family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for five nights over the Fourth of July. Mike and Kathy were great hosts and very accommodating in orienting us to the property. The house is well equipped and we really enjoyed spending time in the sunroom which has nice views of the water. We were not able to use the lift for our boat but a public launch is conveniently located nearby. We enjoyed the sunsets from the dock as well. We have arranged to stay again next year.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in this rental on Green Lake. The home is in the best location on the lake, and it is thoroughly outfitted with everything you could need to be comfortable. Owners are super with great communication. We hope to come back again soon!

Beautiful lake/area to retreat from work/home

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was a week in August with beautiful weather! We enjoyed the secluded house tucked close between two other homes but not visible because of vegetation - even the lakefront was secluded by willow nice! I have a picture of every sunset for our stay - every night we took a game break at 8pm to watch them. The sun room was much bigger than the picture and the carpet and furniture made it the perfect gathering place. Our 9 month old grandson was safe and happy to crawl around there. We have never had the luxury of a boat lift...but it made short fishing trips easy. August wasn't a month my husband expected to catch fish...but he caught enough to make it worthwhile and the little boys caught fish off the dock! We had a much needed vacation in a wonderful place! Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Classic Lake House Experience

  • 5 of 5

Staying here brought back many memories of the days I spent at our family's Wisconsin lake house growing up. From the screen porch, to the chairs on the dock, this is a traditional Wisconsin lakehouse. The best part was that we were able to rent a boat in town, and use the owner's boat lift for storage (this was negotiated separately at time of renting). The kids got lots of waterskiing and tubing on Big Green. Should also mention that there is good fishing right off the dock - bass and bluegill. We grilled hot dogs, and enjoyed eating them on the screen porch. The drive to town was approx 15-20 minutes. We ate at several restaurants in town, which were all pretty good. The owners, who reside nearby, were very accommodating and friendly.

Serene Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We love to continuously come back to this lake. It is huge and unspoiled but more importantly it is never crowded even during the busy summer days. This home away from home is a gem. Its location is awesome. You walk out the back door and all you see is the beautiful expanse of Green Lake. The yard and gardens are beautiful and bring so much life to this property. The dock is quite large and is perfect to just sit and relax on the "dock of the bay"!!! The home is roomy and accommodating for a group and the large screened in porch is a delight. A couple of our favorite restaurants are Goose Blind and Nortons. The property's owner is very helpful and will answer any questions you may have. Many happy memories for our family from this trip!! Try it for yourself!!

Worth the Drive

  • 5 of 5

We're from Nebraska and have been vacationing in Wisconsin for the past 10 years.Last year was our first time at Green Lake and we are already making plans to return this summer. The cottage was absolutely perfect and had everything we needed for a great time. The beds were comfortable, the house was clean, there was plenty of room outside for yard games, and best of all the enclosed area off the kitchen provided the perfect place for late night gatherings and long visits. We certainly weren't disappointed and can't imagine anyone leaving the cottage without having had a perfect vacation.
