About Lisa Diedrich

This property is owned by a group of friends -- two families who love Green Lake, playing in its waters and relaxing by its shores. We love this property so much, we enjoy sharing it with others.

Lisa Diedrich purchased this house in 2002

Why Lisa Diedrich chose Green Lake

Green Lake is the deepest inland lake in Wisconsin. It spans 7 miles and maintains the same clean waters as 100 years ago. We all have so enjoyed the sandy shallows of Norwegian Bay, the oak and maple trees lining Green Lake's shores, and fun nights around the fire pit. While we feel like we are away from it all, we're just a quick walk to the ice cream parlor, Sugar Lips coffee shop, quaint downtown Green Lake, Thrasher Opera House, Home Grown Market, Tuscumbia Golf Course and the Heidel House Resort. The area boasts amazing bike routes around the lake; unbelievable fishing; the ability to rent boats, jet skis and paddle boards; great swimming and just general all-around fun! There's no better place in the world during the summer and fall!

What makes this house unique

This house is right on the lake! The balcony literally hangs over the water as the house was once a functioning boathouse. Guests enjoy their own pier, stone patio, picnic areas, outdoor seating, sandbox, fire pit and balcony. From inside, guests enjoy incredible lake sunsets and views, as well as all the comforts of home. The house also boasts two large living areas, sleeps 10 comfortably and is perfect for family gatherings.

Spectacular spot on Green Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family made our home at the Boathouse on Green Lake for several days. The home was cozy and the beds were so comfortable. But, the views, pier, patio and upper deck were unbeatable. I don't think you can get a better location on Green Lake, as you're only 1.5 miles from town. Set on Pleasant Point, the Boathouse is literally on the water and the upper deck overhangs the lake. We rode the 25 mile loop around the lake on our bikes, shopped downtown, golfed at Lawsonia, boated, wake boarded and jet skied. At night, we lit the patio fire place and enjoyed libations and Smores! Thanks Five Friends!

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

If you're looking for a weekend on the lake with a boat this is a great location. You've got a launch ramp, parking, and dock all right there.

The house itself could use some updates but we had a group of guys who just wanted to be on the water so it wasn't a big deal. There were no linens on the beds or towels which was a pain, most of us ended up sleeping in sleeping bags on the beds. The view is great, but I would caution that the deck looks & feels like a bit of a death trap, I wouldn't want to be out there with more than a couple people.

Kitchen was reasonably functional, but coffee maker is broken, so again we were scavenging just to get a cup of coffee.

Plenty of beds so it accommodated our group very well. Owners allowed us to check out late which really helped out schedule-wise.

Overall a good spot, with some minor work and details it could have been better though.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Brook, as owners that live on the property, we welcome all feedback, and we respond immediately to all requests. 1. Although our information on VRBO clearly states that guests need to provide their own towels and linens, in the future I'll remind our guests in our pre-arrival information to please remember this important item. 2. I wish one of you had informed us that the coffee maker was broken, I would have replaced it immediately. In the future, I'll have a spare coffee maker in the cabinet (I can't imagine a day without coffee). 3. The deck - our top priority is the safety of our guests (my husband is in the insurance business). We've had the deck inspected by an engineer - it is very secure. Visually, due to it's location, hanging over the water, the wood takes a beating, so cosmetically, yes, it could use a fresh coat of paint, which we're tackling this Fall, along with enlarging our bathroom on the ground level. We consistently try to make 1-2 improvements on our property annually. Sincerely, Lisa

GREAT VACATION

  • 4 of 5

The listing description of the property was accurate. The property was clean and well maintained. We felt very comfortable. It was almost like being at home. We loved being right on the lake. Enjoyed sitting on the upper deck with the lake right below. Beautiful views. The owners were very nice. Hope to go back next year. Had a great time swimming, boating, tubing, jet skiing and at the beach. We would recommend this property to others. We found a great Italian restaurant, Christiano's. Great food and family friendly. The lake is beautiful. Rich

Can't beat location

  • 5 of 5

My group enjoyed our stay at the boathouse. We hope to plan another trip in the next couple of years. The boathouse was clean, provided more than enough room for our group of 8, and was nicely located right on Green Lake. The owner quickly responded to all questions we had before the trip. The grilling area and patio were a nice place to hang out in the evening. I highly recommend staying at Lisa's place on Green Lake.

Multiple Family Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 adults and 6 kids between the ages of 1 and 5 stay for 2 nights. We had a great time and wish it had been a little warmer so that we could take advantage of the beautiful lake. The view was amazing and the beds were all very comfortable. The kids had a great time playing in the yard! Our only recommendation would be to take a baby gate if you have any little ones with you. We spent the majority of our time on the second floor and the stairs go right up to the living room where all the kids were playing. We also wish that there was a larger private fire pit to use. Since the adults rarely get to see each other we wanted time around the fire with just our group to catch up. The small fire pit we used worked fine but there wasn't much room to get us all around it and the larger shared fire pit was too far for some of the baby monitors to reach. Overall we had a great time and would recommend this house to others.

Lovely lake weekend

  • 5 of 5

The boathouse was quiet, right on the water, comfortable, clean and spacious; perfect for a family weekend on the lake to fish and swim and boat. We'd book it again.
