LAKESHORE RETREAT: BEAUTIFUL, CLASSIC LAKEFRONT HOME AND COTTAGES

Green Lake Estate Rental Photos and Description

Make Lakeshore Retreat your scenic haven while relaxing and playing on beautiful Big Green Lake. Perfect for a small family vacation, a large family reunion, or a multi-family/friend getaway. Enjoy the sandy beach and excellent swimming our property has to offer, or simply sit back and take in the breathtaking 7.5 mile lake view. Because of our location, we are very fortunate to have one of the most fantastic views on the entire lake. Sip your morning cup of coffee from the end of the pier or from your own front porch, basking in the peaceful harmony of nature as the lake awakens to the new day. After a day of swimming, boating, and experiencing the attractions in the area, gather your family or friends to watch a gorgeous sunset over the lake as you reflect and share stories by the glow of the fire pit by the shoreline.

Our two-story home features a wrap around porch adorned with brilliant white wrought iron facing the lake for an unforgettable view. The field stone fireplace and beam vaulted living room ceiling make for a cozy place to gather. Stained glass windows and lights add elegance and beauty. The full kitchen includes oak cabinetry and gorgeous stained glass/wrought iron overhead lighting. All of these features were lovely designed and made by our parents, Mace and Dolly Miller. The five bedrooms provide sleeping arrangements for 11, which includes 1 queen, 2 doubles, 3 twins, and 1 set of twin bunk beds. A twin daybed is also available if an extra bed is needed.

Three quaint guest cottages that sit from the shore can be rented along with the house or separately during the summer. All feature a large screened porch adorned with white wrought iron, much like the house. The porches are furnished with patio furniture and a picnic table-- perfect for gathering and relaxing. The large cottage has three bedrooms that can sleep 6, including two double beds and two twin beds, along with a kitchen, bathroom, and couch. The two small cottages can each sleep 4. They have two bedrooms, including a double bed and two twin beds, kitchenette, and a bathroom with a shower stall.

We invite you to visit our historic water fountain from the 1893 Chicago Exposition. May your dreams come true at the wishing well. Challenge your family to a game of ping pong, badminton, volleyball, croquet, or bocci ball. Venture out into the lake in one of our rowboats or canoes, or bring your own boat to roam about the lake. May you have your own fish story to tell while fishing from the pier, a boat, or with a local fishing guide. Panfish, walleye, northern pike, muskie, rainbow, brown, and lake trout are abundant in the lake. Most importantly, create precious lifelong memories as you vacation on the shore of beautiful Big Green Lake, truly the finest lake in Wisconsin.

Please email or call for availability, as our lake house and cottages are available at different times.

Please note that we are not taking anymore reservations for 2014. Sorry.

AWESOME FAMILY REUNION HOUSE!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had our annual family vacation and loved the property. We were able to be together for meals in the big house but still had our own quiet areas. The porch was filled with laughter and fun all hours of the day. A few problems popped up, which were totally out of Debbie and Tom's control, within 15 minutes of calling them they were on site and had the problems fixed. The layout of the whole property kept everyone happy and busy.
We are coming back next year. It was voted the best place for all of us.
We enjoyed boating, fishing, swimming, yard games, card playing, relaxing and being together.
We did go into Green Lake, Ripon, and Berling. All of the towns are charming. One of the restaurants in Green Lake was a little rude when we stopped in early in the day to inquire about a dinner menu. We were told a group as large as ours would have to only order from 3 items on the menu. A couple stopped by the restaurant around dinner that evening only to find they had 4 customers. (They could have had over 25). O well...The Goose Blind in Green Lake accommodated us with no problem. There are several awesome ice cream shoppes that have fantastic ice cream.
The ages of our kids were from 6 months to 17 and all enjoyed themselves in the water and the sand area.

We stayed from June 18-21 2013. The good. Excellent location. The main house is large enough for about 15, including children. The house and cabins are in pretty rustic condition, and are stuck in the early 80's. This lends to the uniqueness but it could have been aired out and smelled awfully stale and it did not appear to have been cleaned very well before our arrival. For the price, I had expected more. On our departure we noted some of the broken items to the owner and had a decent stay. However, it rained about 2 inches all morning on our departure and the owners still held back 40 dollars for "dock cleaning", which would have been impossible considering there was nothing on the dock when we left. Its obvious that the owners are renting out an old house to cover their costs, no more. Again, we left the cabin in much better condition than when we arrived.

Owner's Response: This renter was not charged for "dock cleaning". In our contract, our renters may use our boat lift for $20/day. This renter used the lift even though he did not pay for it in his contract.

We always thoroughly clean our lake house and cottages between guests. Our damage/cleaning deposit is designed to cover costs if damage occurs and to encourage our guests to treat our property like their own.
