About Ann and Bill Latham

Bill and Ann Latham, who own and care for the Cabin which is next door to their residence, are 3rd generation Green Lake owners. We have been swimming, diving, fishing, sailing and loving Green Lake for over 60 years. our two children and grandchildren love spending time at the Cabin, but this year their plans changed which is why we are offering it for rent. The lake and Cabin are like part of our family and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we have.

Ann and Bill Latham purchased this house in 1986

Why Ann and Bill Latham chose Minnesota

The property has been in our family for many years, and we are fortunate to enjoy life at Green Lake - located in West Central Minnesota, it is a 5400 acre clear glacial lake with good swimming, sailing, fishing all summer. Spicer and New London, within 4 miles, offer good restaurants, shops, and 27 hole Little Crow Golf Course. 17 miles to Willmar, a municipality with all amenities. Green Lake location is convenient from HWYs 23, 12 and 71. The Cabin has a 'Northern MN' karma due to the large lot size.

What makes this house unique

The sand and gradual water depth into the lake make this beach perfect for children and swimmers of all ages. Good fishing is off the dock and on nearby rock bars. The Cabin deck is as good as it gets, watching the sunrise and wildlife, hearing the waves and listening to the loons. The owners are neighbors who want your stay to be pleasant and full of the wonderful 'lake time' we enjoy year after year.

Five Star Cabin and lake perfection

  • 5 of 5

This is a classic cabin with all the amenities starting with a great beach area, deck, fire pit in a great location. Cabin is cozy and comfy and fit our group of five well. Kitchen was well stocked with all we needed. Owners were extremely helpful with tips on local pontoon rental and were graciously welcoming. The cabin was immaculate, bedding, towels provided and nice that there was a washer and dryer available. We were able to store our bikes in the garage and there's nice trails right off the property. Tv and wifi were nice to have on the one rainy evening. Thanks for a great week Bill and Ann! Hope we can make this an annual event!

Our vacation on Green Lake at this cabin was fantastic! The kitchen was very well equipped and had all the utensils, pots, pans, etc. we needed. The living area is comfortable and has lots of interesting personal and local information. My husband would like to come in the winter and read many of the books. The clear lake, dock, and lily pad provided hours of fun for everyone. We had s'mores around the fire pit in the evening and played lawn games on the huge yard. The owners are very helpful and accommodating. We booked again for next year.

Would recommend this cabin

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing week at Green Lake! The cabin was very clean and had all the comforts of home. Huge yard lakeside with a beautiful view of the lake.The owners even brought over homegrown tomatoes and a supply of firewood for us.

Peaceful get-away

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has all the amenities of home, yet the warmth & peacefulness of a get-away from the hustle & bustle. Surrounded by the reminder that many family memories have already been made here, a great place to make memories of your own. The cabin is clean & well maintained. A couple of the bedrooms are cozy, but accommodating. Large yard to play games and/or hang out and make smores. The lake is sand and is shallow enough to walk quite a ways without it going over your head. Spicer is just around the lake with grocery, fishing supplies & Zorbazs Pizza. A short drive brings you into Minneapolis to catch a Twins game or whatever Minneapolis has to offer.
