About Mary Rowley

We have been fortunate enough to enjoy this property for well over a decade. Our goal is to give the opportunity to others to share time with their family and friends in a place that is very special to us and we know will be appreciated by you, your family and your friends.

Mary Rowley purchased this house in 1994

Why Mary Rowley chose Green Lake

Once you see the location you will understand exactly why we bought this property! It's amazingly peaceful yet a short (very short) walk to the parks, shopping, bars and restaurants in Green Lake.

What makes this house unique

The sunset. Do not miss it. You will feel like you're miles from everything, yet you're conveniently located to anything you'll need on vacation.

Excellent family vacation location

  • 5 of 5

house was more than excellent. family members met from south and central texas, and central florida. 11 family members; 6 adults and 5 children ages 20 months to 9 years gathered in green lake. house was large enough for families to have privacy and quiet and also excellent get together spaces. older adults had full downstairs suite. we could not have asked for a more pleasant and enjoyable place to get together. pool and hot tub were hit with kids and adults alike. house is walking distance to downtown and marina and right on the lake with a beautiful fire pit area for fun and smores! we hope that if the owner ever wants to sell they will call us first!!!!!! Oh and by the way we received our security deposit return before we even got home - WOW.

a dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation! There were 13 of us ( 8 A and 5 K) together and we didn't feel crapped at all, plenty of space and such a home like feel. Highly recommend the property, home very clean and well maintained. Kids loved the pool and hot tub, rented a boat and owner had a pier to tie the boat to. Kids enjoyed fishing off the pier as well. Didn't hear once from the kids "I am bored". We have already scheduled our return next summer!

Great Mother's Day Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Thirteen family members gathered here for Mother's Day Weekend. The house is beautiful, spacious, and well equipped. The waterfront setting equally beautiful. Since we threw this together at the last minute, we contacted Mary many times with questions, and she always texted or called back immediately, always gracious. We hope to return for a longer stay next time.

NEVER RENT THIS HOUSE!

  • 1 of 5

I and my friends have rented this house for New year (12/31/13-01/3/14) . First, it was really hard to communicate with the owner, because she never picked up the phone and didn't answer the email . That's why we were calling her every day and many times. After all, she called back , but if we had any questions it was really hard to reach her. Also, I got scared of her dog , which was in basement and she was trying to jump on me. Plus, she was barking all the time when we were in the house, especially during night, that was disturbing us at night.

Second, there was no water in hot tub when we came back after skiing, what was weird as it had to work all days that we have paid for. We tried to call the renter and ask to resolve the problem but she didn't pick up the phone, what was not a big surprise for me and my friends.

Third, it was said in the book of rules for the house that we can change the temperature if its too cold. So, we tried to fix the temperature for night , but the heater worked only on the 1-st floor while it was super cold on the 2-d floor.

ABOUT DEPOSIT:

After 3 days that we paid for everything was left clean and nice and in a way the rules were. But, unfortunately, we didn't get our deposit back , that the renter asked for and promised to give it back if we wouldn't make any damage to the house. Yesterday, 01/07/14 we found out that the renter cashed our deposit. We tried to email and call her, but she never answered the calls and didn't explain the reason why she didn't return the deposit. We are very disappointed with this situation because she avoids and ignores our calls and emails.

Owner's Response: Initially I did not want to dignify this unwarranted review with a response. However, in retrospect, I feel it is important to give a more accurate representation of the situation, for future inquiries. At Rowley Retreat I make myself readily available at all hours to my guests. I promptly respond to any questions or concerns from renters. This is evident and consistent with all other reviews for this property. I own another business in town, and out of necessity I make myself easily accessible. As for the comments regarding my dog, had the renter not invaded my private living space by entering without permission, he would not have even encountered him. The truth is that my dog received the renter in a very friendly manner. He is a well mannered dog, and has never been a nuisance to renters. Unfortunately the amount of damage that was done to my property by this group of renters, in their short stay, far exceeds anything I've ever experienced in the past five years of rentals. The damage deposit that was retained to repair the damages, was not sufficient to cover cost of repairs including replacement of water damaged hard wood floors and broken gas grill. I understand that it is not uncommon for a disgruntle renter, who has forfeited their damage deposit, to retaliate with their only avenue of recourse; discrediting the owner through a negative review. This experience has allowed me to further review my minimum age requirement of 25 for renters. It appears I over estimated the level of respect and responsibility for this age group, in regards to care of a rental property. Thankfully this experience has not deterred me from my continued enjoyment of managing the Rowley Retreat. Over the years, it has brought me so much joy to hear the reflections from my guests, of the many wonderful memories that have made during their stay.

Fabulous Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had our annual Christmas Cookie Baking weekend with 5 families, kids and spouses and there was plenty of room and activities for all. From fishing (caught quite a big Northern), playing games, hot tubbing and bedrooms where the teenagers could sleep in....fun was had by all.

Family Vacation 2013

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 16, ages teens to 70's, spent a wonderful week in this beautiful home in Green Lake.The house is well maintained and tastefully decorated,with two master suites and enough beds for all. The open designed kitchen was well equipped and led to the dining area and family room. We ate most of our meals at the house, the large kitchen permitted several people to easily prepare and clean up meals. The bedrooms are well located so they are very quiet and one could sleep late or stay up late and not disturb anyone. Everyone enjoyed the pool, playing basketball and fishing off the pier, caught several small fish, we were able to play bag games on the large lawn. We gathered on the decks early in the morning until late in the evening, one night we sat around the bonfire. Green Lake was good for water sports, we rented a pontoon boat and wave runners. The teens kayaked, paddle boarded and tubed. The men golfed at two of the local courses. This house met all our expectations and was described well in it's listing, the owner was very helpful and we would recommend this property. Our family had a great week and would like to return here next summer.
