Wonderful Memories for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived to the end of our stay, the owners made us feel like extended family. We always felt like they would be there for us if we needed them.The Green House is clean & renovated with all updated top notch amenities. The patio's BBQ grill was of high quality too! All beds were fresh and comfortable. All baths and linens were very sanitary. There's 3 homes on the property and The Green House is one that sits at the top of the hill looking down on the other 2 homes below and Lake Geneva. We swam in the prestine cystal clean waters of Lake Geneva both morning and night. We caught crappie, blue gill, bass, and perch off the dock daily. Boats, Boats, and more Boats! We sat on the dock and watch the most wonderful parade of the widest variety of crafts. Old woodies to yachts. It's such a lovely setting nestled among historic homes and Aurora University. We toured the newly renovated next door campus halls and walk the shore lines of the notable million $ homes. It's unbelievable that you can walk from yard to yard of these magnificent homes! Just minutes away are The Abbey, and the towns of Williams Bay & Lake Geneva. All exceptionally significant diverse locations that we enjoyed shopping and spending our time. The Green house provides a warm inviting feeling that will enhance your vacation's intent. We would recommend this property to our friends and family. We have already set our dates for our next year's family reunion!.

A wonderful winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything it claims to be..and more. We loved the overall campus setting that it's on. The house is warm, quaint, well equipped and just minutes away from Fontana and Chucks or The Abbey and a simple right turn puts you in Williams Bay and several options there. Plenty of room for the kids. Great bathrooms, showers and comfy beds. Nice large screen TV and Internet (if you choose that direction) as well as a nice stash of board games. Bring your walking shoes as the trails are there and ready. Outstanding owners that are quick to respond and true to their word. We WILL be back.

Beautiful, clean and in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful time as always. The property is well maintained and very clean and all the amenities that you could possibly need. Location is right next to the lake and walking area and the town is only a couple of minutes away, all very convenient. I would highly recommend a stay at the Green House to my friends and family.

Great Weekend Getaway at the 'Green House'

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two adult children took advantage of the nice weather at the end of September and booked a quick weekend getaway at the Green House. Carol was there to greet us and showed us the property. Carol is very friendly and was always close by if we needed anything. The cottage sits at the back of the property but is only a short walk to the lake. The house has a great cottage feel and we were able to open the windows and feel the nice fall breeze through the house. The cottage is well maintained and was very clean with newer appliances and upgraded Windows. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, cooking utensils and pots and pans for cooking. We cooked all our meals in the cottage. We brought our boat and docked it at their pier which was a real plus for us. We also took advantage of the pathway along the lake and walked to Fontana for the annual antique boat show. We would definitely recommend the Green House for a summer vacation or weekend get away.

Everything it turned out to be

  • 5 of 5

Carole and Rex were wonderful hosts. The property was spotless and very inviting. There was plenty of room and very cozy. The Green House has everything you would need to have an amazing time in the area. Being from there originally, I had high expectations. Carole and Rex's "Green House" exceeded them by leaps and bounds. My only reluctance, is that somebody else will have booked this property the next time my family want to visit. Don't miss out! Thanks Carole and Rex.
