Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are a fun-loving family from Evanston IL who have enjoyed Green Lake for 20+ years. Our home is Back Pond Cottage at 442 South Street and we rent our Back Pond Cottage GUEST HOUSE next door at 448 South Street.

Why the Owner Chose Green Lake, WI, USA:
Our area of Green Lake is the BEST place to be and we have great neighbors. It's a few blocks from downtown and Deacon Mills Park & Wharf, and an easy walk to Hattie Sherwood Beach. Along with a growing family, we enjoy having friends visit so we need the additional space. Who knows - maybe you'll become one of our pals!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This home is so beautiful. The size is perfect and tastefully decorated. You'll love the way it's laid out, the views, the happy feel you have when you step into the home. The gardens are like Monet's and it is just charming! Easy to walk to town and enjoy all the special events, concerts in the park, farmer's market and more!
