Location is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

What an enjoyable week we had at The Boat House! The location of this house is perfect - so close to the Marina and downtown! The view of Green Lake from the house is amazing! Plenty of room for a large family and friends. We have been coming to Green Lake for years and this by far has been the best location/house. I will miss having coffee every morning on the deck of the boat house. Thanks again Anne!

Summer FUN

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all! If you're looking for a family get-away, a girls weekend, or just a spot for fun or relaxation, then this is the house on Green Lake for you. This will be my THIRD year staying and I already cannot wait. This house is in the perfect location. Close to downtown for concerts in the park, The Farmers' Market, and renting your boat for the week...OR spend the week relaxing at the Spa at Heidel house, with a book in the backyard overlooking the lake, or on sitting on top of the boat to overlook the peaceful morning lake...this place is the BEST!

Our family has a wonderful time in this spacious, VERY CLEAN, wonderfully decorated home! Here are some of our favorite things to do/about the home...

-Game nights in the boathouse as we watch the sunset!

-Fishing off the pier

-Sunset swims in lake

-WALKING to rent our boats and wave runners

-Morning walks downtown or to Heidel House for coffee, breakfast, lunch, and ice cream

-Bon-fires, bags, and grilling in the backyard each night

Enjoy your stay at this fantastic Lake House!

Fabulous Illinois St. Rental

  • 5 of 5

Have been visiting Green Lake for close to 30 years and plan on returning HERE again this summer. This is a GREAT rental.

Spacious yard for kids to play, and they love jumping from the pier into crystal clear water.

Plenty of sunny, or shady, spots to sit with a good book, sip a cold drink and RELAX.

Boat, swim, fish...all steps from the backdoor; and challenging golf at Lawsonia just minutes away.

Easy walk to town for restaurants and local attractions.

Magnificent unobstructed views from boat house roof deck.

Easily accommodates our large family.

Fabulous walk to town location!

  • 5 of 5

Owners description of property is way too modest! This is your dream vacation home! Bring your family, mother and cousins, there is room for absolutely everyone. Walk to town for an ice cream cone treat or maybe some bait if you want to fish from the private pier.

Churches, post office and Heidel House Resort are walking distance for those who care to explore. You cannot find a better rental for family fun. I was there in summer of 2013 and already have reserved 2014. Don't hesitate on this one or you may miss out. Furnishings are excellent and everything is so clean and tidy you think you are in a five star hotel with your own washer and dryer! I am not kidding, this is THE BEST!
