We invite you to enjoy our beautiful, spacious, year-round home, White Oaks, on the North Shore of Green Lake. A popular vacation destination, the town of Green Lake is within easy walking distance from our house, but far enough away for you to enjoy the privacy our property affords. Green Lake is Wisconsin's deepest inland lake and provides ample opportunities for great fishing and water sports. Bustling in the summer, Green Lake is a serene and picturesque get-away spot for fall, winter and spring as well.
We have a private pier. Should you bring or rent a boat, we have a shore station (boat lift) to keep your boat (max. 4,000 lbs.) safely out of the water when not in use. The large, gently sloping front lawn is perfect for a variety of yard games...croquet and bean bags are our personal favorites.
Built in the early 1900's, the house, named 'White Oaks,' was significantly damaged by a fire in 1995 and was rebuilt in 1998. The house now features vintage charm with a number of features from the old house combined with modern conveniences.
The highlight of the house is the original wrap-around screened-in porch. The porch itself is huge (over 800 square feet) and is a perfect spot to relax on one of the gliders or rocking chairs and enjoy the lake breeze anytime of day, or for an al fresco dinner on the large dining table.
Inside, four bedrooms are on the main floor and each feature either a bathroom or sink for increased privacy. In the basement, a six-person bunk room is a perfect retreat for the kids. There is some additional sleeping space on pull-out couches. The captions for the pictures of each bedroom describe the bed configurations.
The basement features a large recreation room with ping-pong, darts, foosball and other games. A flat screen TV has a DVD/VCR for watching movies at night. We also offer cable and wireless internet access.
On the main floor, a large eat-in kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, cookware and flatware, as well as common appliances such as coffee makers. The kitchen opens to a large dining room with a piano and loft overhead.
If you are a golfer, there are several excellent golf courses nearby including Tuscumbia and Lawsonia. Other activities nearby include bowling, miniature golf, and a movie theater (located in downtown Ripon), just in case you have a day where the weather isn't cooperating.
Whether you are looking for a golf vacation, a week of swimming and boating, or time to relax with family or friends, we welcome you to our home. We wish we were there now!
