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.

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.

Beautiful and homey, wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with my husband's family to celebrate my mother in law's 80th birthday. We were 9 in total with 3 kids, and there was plenty of space for everyone... we slept well, ate well as a family, enjoyed the beautiful views, lawn and flowers... The marina for boat and SUP rentals, as well as all of downtown, was just a couple minutes' walk away. Jo Ellen was a lovely host. Highly recommend.

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group who stayed in this charming home for a week. It has great views of the lake from the sun room and the deck, was a quick walk to the downtown restaurants, and was a wonderful home to relax in!

The PERFECT Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This home could not have been more perfect for our girls weekend! To start, Jo Ellen, the owner is an absolute pleasure to work with. She made us feel so welcome there! The house is so beautifully decorated and feels warm, cozy and welcoming! It is well stocked, with everything you could possibly need! It is very clean and well taken care of. The location is amazing, right near the water with a perfect waterfront view from the deck. We walked everywhere - to the beach, town, shops, restaurants! Green Lake is a charming little town and had a Farmers Market in town while we were there. We also visited a nearby winery and brewery (short drive). Although this house was perfect for a girls weekend, it has sleeping arrangements that would also work well for families. I can't say enough great things - we loved it!

Incredible Memorial Day Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 9 stay at the house and it fit us all very well. Everything in is a simple walking distance away, such as food, fishing, boating, and the late night bar Gooseblind. Fortunately the weather turned out for us this weekend so we were able to enjoy most activities. For the use and pleasure we had spending the long weekend at the house I'd say it was well worth the stay.

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!
