Guestbook comments from the owner

This guest responded 8 adults would show up but had 12-15. The home was fitted for 8 adults with linens towels blankets silverware 8 rolls of toilet paper. My rental agreement states no fireplace for insurance purposes and drive was cleared & blue dyed salted for off steet parking. This time of year is unpredictable with the weather and should expect that.

Nice house but needs some tender loving care

  • 3 of 5

This is a roomy split level home but they are very skimpy with supplies. The home says there is a DVD player and there isn't. One Tv in basement and very old!! We had little kids so we went out and bought a DVD player. Cold air return downstairs is filthy and stereo area needs dusting badly. They left "one" extra sheet. Really? Dead stinky carp by pier that has been there a while. Worked out well for space but location not ideal if you have your own boat!!

Family Lake Trip

  • 3 of 5

We loved Green Lake & will definitely go back. There are plenty of activities like boating, fishing, swimming, hiking & exploring but it’s also very low-key & relaxing. This house is in a good location & the layout worked well for our family of five adults & a toddler. The big yard was also a plus. There are a few things to be aware of: the dock was sagging on one side & there isn’t room to tie up a boat as the owners boat is there, the handrail on the deck is loose & not particularly safe, the shower in the 2nd floor master is missing the hardware & the entry is too small for most adults. The kitchen is equipped with the basics but if you plan on doing much cooking or baking, you should bring additional cookware. We were able to make do and after some cleaning by my son-in-law we were able to use the grill. All in all, we had a good time and plan to come back to Green Lake, but might look for a different property.

We spend a great New Year weekend in that house. House huge, easy can feet in a winter time 10 couples, on summer even more, there is few extra mattresses that you can use. We like kitchen, room design and decorations. Thank you Brian!

Nice Christmas Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for our family Christmas and found the home very comfortable. The owner even had holiday decorations for us. The kitchen was great for cooking big meals for large groups. We had plenty of towels and linens. The lower level was perfect for groups to watch the Packers, and nice for the kids sleeping. Beds were very comfortable. Home is tastefully decorated and has beautiful wood floors. We will definitely return.

Absolutely Awful

  • 1 of 5

We rented this home for a one week family vacation. Upon arriving we found the home filthy. Obviously not cleaned after the last renters. On top of that the house and yard are in complete disrepair. Unkept yard, broken dock, broken deck table with torn chairs, rusted grill......inside, besides being dirty, there was minimal linens, lacking pots and pans, junk filled sunroom...Owner refused to rectify the situation, so we were forced to leave. Owner still has not refunded our money. Be warned, pictures of this house are not what you will find when you arrive. Don't let your vacation get ruined like ours did!!!!

Owner's Response: The comments made are not true. I sent a cleaning crew over to my home within 1hr. after I was notified of the complaint and my crew sent me pics that the home was clean but touched up anyway. My renter did not complain nor did her guests while my cleaning crew was there. My home is fully stocked with cookware and linens also maintained. People will have there opinions but that is no excuse to try and get out of a contract for other reasons outside of renting my home. My cleaning crew also noticed a lg. boat that could not be docked @ my pier and I warned the renter of that before they showed up.
