Why Jo Ellen Madden chose Green Lake

Our guest house is cozy, clean, charming and close to downtown Green Lake. It's a few blocks from Deacon Mills Park & Wharf, and an easy walk to Hattie Sherwood Beach. Great space for family gatherings, girls' getaway, a place to rest if attending EAA or a Golf Tournament.

What makes this cottage unique

This home is so beautiful. The size is perfect and tastefully decorated. You'll love the way it's laid out, the views, the happy feeling you have when you step into the home. The gardens are like Monet's and it is just charming! Easy to walk to town and enjoy all the special events, concerts in the park, farmer's market, community center, fitness center, and more!

Picture perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I were looking for a Girls Weekend away and completely enjoyed our time here. The view of the water, the hot tub, the spacious open concept kitchen, the multiple sleeping locations, the 2-block walk from downtown - it had everything we needed and wanted and then some! We will be back again next year!

Great Gathering Place!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many VRBO's and this was one of our favorites! We have spent a lot of time in Green Lake over the years and have family close by, so it was perfect for a large gathering! We enjoyed time together around the large kitchen island and then watching the Cubs beat the Dodgers was a perfect way to end the evening! We are definitely going to try to get back over the summer. Thank you for such a fun weekend!

Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5

My family and I traveled from different parts of the country to spend quality time together and to enjoy a family wedding. The Back Pond Cottage provided us the perfect place to enjoy the town of Green Lake. We had plenty of room and the amenities were great. We especially enjoyed the front porch and the great room where we gathered and enjoyed each others company in the beautiful surroundings. We got to take in the charm of this special community by meeting the people, spending time on the golf course, riding bikes around the Lake, walking the town and celebrating a wedding with our family. This is a very special home in a very special place and I hope to get the privilege to return one day!

Sisters Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely beautiful. There was so much room for all of us to just sit back and relax and we did a lot of that. It is very quiet and so close to town that we were able to walk every where. The house was also fully stocked with supplies. The hot tub was super nice and we all enjoyed it late in the evening. Plenty of decks and a nice porch when the weather turned rainy. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend or a better place to stay.

Quiet and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

During a recent visit to Oshkosh for EAA Airventure, a group of colleagues stayed at this wonderful property. With how crazy the airshow can be, we really wanted to get away from the madness for a few hours. While we didn't get a lot of sleep by nature of the early morning and late night festivities, what sleep we did get was restful and comfortable.

Other reviews are quite clear on the quality of the property itself. A huge must, of course. However, it was the location that I really loved. Next to a lake, you can hear the frogs at night, see fireflies, and take in the cool summer evening air.

In the morning, pop over to the Little Colonial for breakfast. Super fast service, and great food.

Had a fantastic stay here.
