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.

Perfect for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the third year we enjoyed a week in July at Green Lake. The Rowley House is a great place for a large Family. Our family of 16 ranges in age from 15 to 80, three generations of family. The house is beautiful and very well maintained and clean. We enjoyed the pool, basketball court and fishing. Each night we had a bonfire and looked at the stars. Our family enjoys playing games so we had a continuous board game in the dining room and card games each evening. The area has great bike paths and golf courses. I would recommend this home and area for anyone to have a relaxing, fun vacation.

What a perfect escape for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We gather each year for the past 15 years with 3 families plus grandparents. We've rented a lot of houses and are so pleased with the Rowley house. Our kids ages 6 - 11 were never bored, even on bad weather days. The house is very well maintained compared to other homes we have rented in the area. We will definitely be back!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family of 17 stayed in this house for a week. It far exceeded our expectations. We had plenty of sleeping room and the dining area was huge. The two big tables each sat 8 and pushed together we all could sit for our dinner. We also played lots of board games around the tables. Kitchen was large and updated. There wasn't a thing we needed that wasn't there. Plenty of space for togetherness or private areas for aloneness.

The teenagers loved the pool, hot tub, basketball court and kayaking and fishing on the lake. One of the great things was the location so close to town. We walked to town where there were great restaurants and ice cream shops... even danced in the park to live music! The owner was always available for us and was very easy to communicate with. Bottom line...... rent this beautiful won't be sorry.

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.
