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 Markesan
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!

The house is in a good location it’s very clean I love that it’s an open concept . And there’s a very cute pub Riley‘s pub down the street. It was the best place that we ate while we stayed.
Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. We love Riley's too. Some new places in Princeton and Green Lake (Horseradish, Chops).
all the comforts of home
Reasonably priced, clean, convenient location, quiet cottage. Green Lake is across the street. Lot's of other attractions and recreation within 40 miles in any direction. Love this place. We will be back again next year.
Cottage on a Pond
Overall, our stay at the Cottage on a Pond was very good. The cottage was clean, well furnished and very comfortable. We had a very relaxing week. The surrounding towns were quiet and laid back; with lots of diners and pubs to eat and drink at. And plenty of shops and antique stores if you are into that.
My only complaint is that it is very difficult to get into Green Lake - literately - if you have a dog who loves to swim in lakes. There is a public access beach a half block away for the cottage (one of only three public access beaches on the whole lake!). It is a very small beach and was always very crowded with other people whenever we tried to go to the beach. There are also some very nice Green Lake County Parks with beaches on Green Lake as well. But, no dogs allowed between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
So our take away is that if you have dogs, Green Lake is not a very Dog Friendly place to vacation at.
We will continue our search for another beautiful WI lake with a cottage and better lake access for us and our dogs.
Thanks for making us aware of the dog policy at Green Lake County Parks - did not know this. There are 4 public openings as you head to the county park on Lakeshore Dr. The one closest to us is the busiest - as it has a sandy beach. The other ones don't tend to be nearly as busy. They are sandy bottom but a grass beach. I'll let other dog owners know this. I wonder if this is a newer policy as we had a dog for many years but she passed about several years ago and we haven't been back to parks one since. Glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise.

Very Nice, cozy
The pond was a big hit with my daughter! Really cute cottage.
Glad you enjoyed the pond. We find it very peaceful. Always good to hear our guests enjoyed their stay.
Great cottage in the perfect location!
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!
Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay.
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
