Cozy, peaceful getaway

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I wanted to get away for a few days and chose Sunset Nook after reading the reviews and wanting a stand alone house, not a hotel or condo. We enjoyed the jetted tub, the fireplace and the fire bowl outside under the stars. The location is great -- walking distance to downtown and a little private yard to sit and enjoy the sunsets. The house had everything we needed and was nicely decorated and furnished, and very clean. One negative for anyone interested in fishing -- the cottage is on a pond that connects to the lake, and fishing isn't good on the pond. It's pretty weedy and shallow. We hadn't been to Green Lake in 25 years, and it hasn't changed much. Still small and quaint. Got to eat at Adam's Rib, Goose Blind and Little Corporal. Enjoyed golf and a nearby winery in Ripon. Tried to take a lake cruise on the Heidel House yacht, but they had engine trouble so couldn't go. Lucked out on the weather for late October! Faith the owner was great to work with. Would definitely recommend Sunset Nook to travelers heading to Green Lake!

30 year Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

What a very beautiful place. Every thing you could imagine.

Listing dose not do it justice. Faith is such a wonderful person and has every thing you need.

Me and my wife had such a fabulous and relaxing time celebrating our 30 years of bliss. We cant wait to get back.

The views and wild life are spectacular. Everything so neat and in place.

Downtown just a short walkthrough the park.

Highly recommened

Sunset Nook Cottage is a treasure!

  • 5 of 5

We recently visited Green Lake and stayed at Sunset Nook Cottage. We love the quaint, quiet town of Green Lake and Sunset Nook Cottage is a great place to stay. It has all the comforts of home, a beautiful view of the bay from the lovely back porch (my favorite place to sit) and it's walking distance to many places to eat in downtown Green Lake. The cottage and the proximity to town really draws us. We've stayed in many locations around the lake, and we find that we like being in town best.

Not only is the cottage and its location great, but so is Faith. She thinks of every comfort for her guests -from nice shampoo and soaps with plush towels in the bathroom to the welcome basket holding tea and honey, coffee and scone mix on the kitchen island. The Cottage is a delight, need I say more?

We're regular folk and are drawn to the local eateries. We really like Adam's Rib with their daily specials, good food and reasonable prices. Christiano's has a good pizza, fresh salads and friendly servers and is very close by via car. Little Corporal has the fastest served breakfast in town and they mean it! We've had their pancakes, omelets and even the occasional ice cream cone and were two thumbs up. Okay so we like to eat on vacation, but walking around town and enjoying the lake views can give you an appetite. I say come to Green Lake and enjoy Sunset Nook Cottage and all it has to offer.

This place is absolutely charming!!! Immaculate and comfortable!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot wait to come back here! This cottage is perfect for quiet reflection or a small gathering of friends. Even though there are buildings closer than the pictures make it appear, it feels very private. Being close to town is a huge plus, and the park is right there! The beds are super comfortable,, and the cottage is equipped with anything you could possibly need.

I can't wait to cone back!!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay at the sunset nook cottage and green lake really was perfect... Location was steps away from a nice playground and only a few blocks away from the quaint town - an easy walk with young kids. The town has several restaurants, a few local shops and a candy store. And we were able to dock our boat right in front of the cabin and launch the boat rich around the corner. All so convenient.

And I can't say enough about the cottage... Charming, so well decorated and Faith has everything you could need. Even fishing rods were made available, though we didn't get to fishing during our stay. As others have noted, the cottage is part of a condo complex, but it's a small complex and you don't even know it when you're in the cottage. The view is great. We even got to enjoy watching a pop-up hail storm move across the lake.

It's the perfect part of the lake to enjoy a canoe or kayak ride. Maybe we'll get to that next time. Incredible vacation for us and our 3 young daughters. We're already looking for return dates!
