Why David Schultz chose Green Lake

This property is a fantastic home to host a good number of people with 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. It is also on a channel that connects to Green Lake (Beyers Cove), which provides great access to fishing, boating, water skiing, and even boating to downtown Green Lake for dinner and drinks. The home itself is a great lay out with two bedrooms and a bath on one side, and 2 bedrooms and a bath on the other side. The two sides of the home a joined together by a huge great room and kitchen. This is a great spot for entertaining and socializing. This home provides a quiet setting on the end of the channel, but also allows you access to all of Green Lake with a short trip down the channel.

What makes this house unique

Walk right out the back door of the home to the dock for some fishing or to a boat to hit the lake. We have an extra slip on our pier where you can tie up your personal boat or marina rental. The home has a natural gas grill, firepit, screened in porch, patio furniture, and a large dock with a bench. Also, we have Cable and WIFI available to guests.

Beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious property. Stayed with my 3 adult children and their families and had plenty of room. Only disappointing thing had nothing to do with home but the bay. It was dirty and made it impossible for my brother in law’s boat to make it down. Tried but his motor got gummed up with weeds and algae making it a 45 minutes ride back to their place on the main lake.

Great space for family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 8 adults and 2 small kids stayed here for a very cold New Years and it was a great space for us to stay inside for a few days by a fire, play games, and eat some good meals. There are 4 bedrooms (3 with double/queen beds and 1 with a twin bed and a bunk beds). One of the kids slept in a Pak N Play so we had the exact right number of beds for us. It was clean, with a beautiful open kitchen/dining room that opens into a huge living space. Fully stocked kitchen that had everything we needed. Quick WiFi. Beautiful fireplace. Also a huge dining room that seats 8 adults which was perfect. You could also easily squeeze in a couple more chairs.

2 small things to note: the coffee maker is kinda quirky - you need to pour in hot water, and make sure you turn on BOTH switches (there are two). We threw out at least a few batches of coffee because we didn’t do it right. Also, the sectional couch is great because it it so big, but it comes apart really easily and leaves exposed huge screws and we had to keep watching that the kids didn’t get hurt on them. Not a huge deal but just something to watch for.

All in all, we loved this place!

Great house and location for ladies weekend get-away

  • 5 of 5

Six of us retired ladies (high school friends) had plenty of roomy yet cozy gathering options to sit and chat: living room, screened porch, outside patio, dining area and outside fire pit. This was our first time renting a home and we weren't sure what to expect. Other than bringing our own towels, we found everything we needed. The spacious kitchen was nicely stocked with condiments, cooking utensils and paper supplies. Beds were comfy, neighbor hood was quiet, views were great, place was clean and nicely decorated, nearby Green Lake and Princeton had cute little shops to explore. We will be back.

Great space for our group

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this home. The living space is perfect for a mid - large size group. Huge sectional sofa, nice kitchen bar/counter space & huge kitchen table. Great for a group that wants to hang out together. Rooms were perfect. Bathroom on each side of the house worked great. Sunroom was a bonus. Fire pit was awesome & used at night. Owner was great & very accessible if needed for questions.

Family Vacation at Green Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six, 2 parents and 4 kids ages 15 - 23, stayed here from August 6 - 11. The home is in great shape and perfect for a family our size. It has everything you need and carries all newer appliances. The screened in porch was a favorite to hang out in since the temperatures were very mild during our stay. The option of having a pontoon boat was fantastic! We had 4 gorgeous days to use the boat, allowing us to go fishing, tubing, and just touring the lake. David Schultz, the owner, is exactly the type of person you'd want to rent from. He was a phone call away and always answered when I called. Outstanding service! This was a wonderful late summer family vacation before the kids head back to school. Thank you David!

Clean and Very Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome home. Went with our adult children and their two year olds. The home was very clean and accommodating. Peaceful on the canal, but sadly no fish were caught off the dock. Saw some wildlife on the water and in the wooded areas. Due to the weather and having the lil ones we didn't use the pontoon boat. We are sure to want to come back again.

Dave was wonderful to work with.
