About Lisa Diedrich
This property is owned by a group of friends -- two families who love Green Lake, playing in its waters and relaxing by its shores. We love this property so much, we enjoy sharing it with others.
Lisa Diedrich purchased this House in 2002
Why Lisa Diedrich chose Green Lake
Green Lake is the deepest inland lake in Wisconsin. It spans 7 miles and maintains the same clean waters as 100 years ago. We all have so enjoyed the sandy shallows of Norwegian Bay, the oak and maple trees lining Green Lake's shores, and fun nights around the fire pit. While we feel like we are away from it all, we're just a quick walk to the ice cream parlor, Sugar Lips coffee shop, quaint downtown Green Lake, Thrasher Opera House, Home Grown Market, Tuscumbia Golf Course and the Heidel House Resort. The area boasts amazing bike routes around the lake; unbelievable fishing; the ability to rent boats, jet skis and paddle boards; great swimming and just general all-around fun! There's no better place in the world during the summer and fall!
What makes this House unique
This house is right on the lake! The balcony literally hangs over the water as the house was once a functioning boathouse. Guests enjoy their own pier, stone patio, picnic areas, outdoor seating, sandbox, fire pit and balcony. From inside, guests enjoy incredible lake sunsets and views, as well as all the comforts of home. The house also boasts two large living areas, sleeps 10 comfortably and is perfect for family gatherings.

We had a fantastic time at the boat house! Everything was very clean and well kept, and the location couldn't be better! The view from the balcony is absolutely the best.
Relaxing Getaway - Perfect Place to Stay!
We had the MOST wonderful time in the Boathouse - Lisa and her family were extremely accommodating and helpful, and the place was immaculate! By far the BEST place we have stayed in Green Lake, Wi (we have been visiting for almost 20 years) .... comfortable, clean home, and close to town for dinner / errands!
There are plenty of bedrooms / bathrooms -- comfortably sleeps 10 people; the kitchen has a dishwasher and is stocked with silverware / plates / glassware. The deck overlooks the lake and provides a perfect place to watch the waves roll in during the day and star gazing at night. The walk-out dock and swimming pier are in great shape and the boat slip was perfect for our family! Additionally, there is a fire pit and huge yard that is a great size for yard games (bags, frisbee, bocci ball, etc.).
I would HIGHLY recommend staying at this place for families (great for kids) / friends / small groups looking for a fun, relaxing week away! The best place we have stayed in Green Lake, WI!
We all had a great time!!!
This was our second year staying at The Boat House. The owners were very accommodating and cordial. You can't get any closer to the water than this since the second floor balcony hangs over the lake. The views across and down the lake are spectacular. The house itself is very homey and comfy. Listening to the waves splashing on the shore will lull you to sleep. No one wanted to leave! If all goes according to plan we will be back next year!!!!!
Beautiful lake location
We have stayed at VRBOs across the country and around the world and never not had sheets and towels provided. Once we realized this and went shopping I looked on the site to see how I could have missed it. I would recommend that this be more prominently displayed- it is the very last item- under NOTES. I would also recommend that there be a notation in the confirmation email as well since this is the exception to most VRBOs. That said, the location was beautiful, the house very comfortable and the owners very responsive. We would make two recommendations/ wishes- a hair blow dryer would be nice and the chains that control the fan in the upstairs bedroom should be long enought to access- so that they can be controlled separately. We enjoyed our stay, the fishing and the view
Thank you for your review. I'm so sorry that you didn't notice that linens and towels are not provided. In the 14 years we've been renting our cottage, this is the first time this has occurred. I will however remind our future guests to make sure linens and towels are on their check list.
I hadn't noticed the chain on the fan, but I'll definitely fix that to make it easier to access, and add a blow dryer (I overlooked both), but I really appreciate the suggestions.
Thanks again for staying with us.
The place was exactly what we needed for a long weekend! The views were absolutely gorgeous and the updated balcony deck was save and secure! We will definitely keep it in mind for future vacations!
Thank you! Your group looked like they were having fun and enjoying Green Lake. Hope to see you all again.
Great lake experience
The Boathouse is right on the lake, access to the dock and swimmable lake is wonderful! Property description was accurate; there was a large yard to play games in, a nice patio area, grill and picnic tables. The homeowners were located behind the boathouse and were available if any issues arise. Great for my group of friends to get together!
Thank you for selecting our property. Hope you can all get together again on Green Lake!
