About Bob and Cheryl Picha

We bought our Green Lake duplex in 1993. We've enjoyed many years of fun with our children. Now that they're on their own we would love other families to experience the same fun times.

Bob and Cheryl Picha purchased this Cottage in 1993

Why Bob and Cheryl Picha chose Brooklyn

Enjoy the peace and beauty of the pond while being just across the street from beautiful Green Lake. Lots of room outside for the kids to roam. Easy walk to the beach. Public launch nearby, plenty of room to keep your boat on the side lawn.

What makes this Cottage unique

Beautiful serene view of well kept pond - our neighbors own it and keep it circulated so it doesn't get stagnant. Big Green lake is across the street and public beach is short walk. Public launch is minutes away. Enjoy Princeton, Green Lake and other nearby towns for antiques and Saturday flea market may-oct. While we have cable tv and internet, the cottage is a great place to get away from everything and enjoy peace and quiet. Beautiful in the fall and spring and winter too!

                                                          This cottage was everything I wanted. Beautiful views of Big green lake, and a lovely little pond right out the front door. Close to both downtown Princeton and green lake. A perfect getaway!

                                                          This is our second year here and this is the perfect getaway. Close to just about anything you want do do on vacation yet it is great to come home to quiet surroundings. The location is perfect for us. The Owners are on top of everything, professional service, and very friendly and always willing to work with you. The $$ rate is very reasonable for the area and time of year we book. We have already booked the next year. This feels like home in another world, like retirement! Anyway, thanks Bob and Cheryl Picha. See you next year. Sincerely, Geo and Liz

                                                          Property was nice. It was clean but could have used a Little dusting in the windows to clear some cobwebs and bugs on the porch. But overall loved it!

                                                          Someday we hope to come back again.
