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.

Wonderful, as always

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying. We try to come back every year in October to celebrate our anniversary in Green Lake.

The town of Green Lake is thriving and a great place to visit, even in the off season! The location is easy walking distance to town. We wish we had our own... but until we do, we will continue to stay here! Thanks once again Jo Ellen!

All the comforts of home

We had such a nice time at Back Pond Cottage. The views of the pond and lake are breathtaking and we were able to relax and get away from our everyday lives.

Perfect house, location and community

  • 5 of 5

The Back Pond Cottage is perfect for place for a family get together for young and old. The home worked out great for us do to its open, accessible floor plan. We had several family members (80+ Years of age) with mobility issues, who are normally restricted to one or two sitting areas. They were able to enjoy the outside sitting areas over looking the lake during the georgeous days and 3 separate sitting areas in the evenings. The small, quaint community was an added bonus. We have already started looking at dates in the spring for a return trip. Thank you so much for sharing your incredible home with our family

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.
