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!

Prefect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

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!

Cottage on the Pond

  • 2 of 5

The owners were very accommodating to our requests and were prompt to responding via Homeaway.

When reviewing the overall cottage, we were pleased but not pleased with the cottage. The cottage itself was not marked, there was no parking (so we parked in the driveway (which feeds to other homes as well) and the overall outside appearance of the property looked run down. The cottage is "duplex" of sorts, where other people live on the second half. I tried getting into their place first, because the location wasn't marked. Oops!

When we entered the cottage the overwhelming smell of mold instantly alarmed us. We opened all the windows (in the winter) to air the place out. There was a central fan running, but from a location that had visible mold on the exposed pink insulation. Needless to say, we turned that off right away. There was visible mold, most likely due to prolonged water damage, on the ceiling. To us, this is a deal breaker on ever returning. After airing the cottage out and starting to cook, the mold smell went away, although the fact of the matter remains, the mold is there and should be addressed for the health safety of guests. On of our friends was 7 months pregnant with twins and you could tell she was uncomfortable being there.

We found the necessary cooking tools suitable and they have everything you need to make meals or bake. There were plenty of dishes, although one of the cabinet shelfs is sagging heavily and will most likely break soon due to too much weight. The fridge was very clean and accommodated all our food needs. The oven/stove is an awesome, functioning antique! Great piece :-) We loved the large windows that over looked the pond, it was perfect for sunsets and sun rises. The cottage was filled with sun all day. We didn't mind the cozy feel of the dinning room table pretty much in the living room, its a cottage right? There was a TV for those who like to watch while on vacation, playing cards (which we used a lot) and a large book selection in one of the rooms.

The location itself isn't within beaches, that we could see at least. The water is across the street, so if you want to stand along the water, you have to look for a public landing.

We felt overall the location was overpriced and the cleaning fee was outrageous for the condition of the cottage. We could have our entire home cleaned for less and we live in the city. All that said we made the most of our time and had fun with our friends!

Owner's Response: Sorry you thought there was mold - Can assure you there is not. The fan you reference is clearly marked not to turn on as it is for summer only - this is why it has insulation behind the cover which is removed in the summer. There is a parking space behind the house and it is marked but perhaps the snow covered it? We'll make sure to have it more clearly marked. We believe our rates and cleaning fees are comparable for the time of year and space offered. We clearly state that we are not on the lake and the beach access is a short walk away.
