'Girlfriend' Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 6 longtime friends and we get together for a weekend away every fall. This year we went to Williams Bay and stayed at the "Green House" on Geneva Lake. The house was lovely, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen well stocked with everything we needed. It was a very short (and hilly) walk to the pier where we spent hours enjoying some beautiful autumn weather. The location was convenient to area restaurants and activities. Thank you to our kind hosts, who were helpful and concerned to make our visit such a fun weekend.

Girls’ reunion

  • 5 of 5

The Green House was the perfect home for five grade school friends to reunite after fifty years. The house is charming, inviting, and comfortable. The location afforded beautiful walks to Williams Bay and the Abbey and a short drive to Lake Geneva shopping. We thoroughly enjoyed our get together, and I would definitely recommend the Green House to anyone planning a stay in the area.

The home was absolutely perfect. The hosts were so incredibly nice and very friendly. Property is right on the water, which was awesome. The kitchen and family room were really nice sized and easily accomodated 6 adults. Would highly recommend!

Comfortable, peaceful house a few hundred feet from the lake

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very helpful and responsive while respecting our privacy. They also accommodated our request to invite some guests to a barbeque celebrating our wedding anniversary. The home has a warm cottage feel while being more spacious then it appears.
