    The unit Faith provides is better than advertised - great location, great condition and all the amenities you could ask for. The weather didn’t cooperate but we still really enjoyed our inaugural trip to Green Lake and will definitely come back. The location of Sunset Nook is perfect in that we could walk to everything in town. The fishing from the dock was a ton of fun and we were able to take the kayaks out for a quick trip between storms. We are a large family and while we will probably look for a 2 bathroom unit next time, we were not cramped in Faith’s unit at all. You just can’t beat the views!

    Had a wonderful last minute getaway. Property just like photos and meticulously clean. As some others mention- it is nearby other units- however unobstructed view from living room, front yard and bedroom- making it seem very private. Kitchen with everything we needed, very comfortable main bedroom and lovely shower and stand-alone jacuzzi tub. Cozy gas fireplace and large tv with good cable and all the streaming stuff. If traveling with toddlers- we did have to temporarily move some decorations and recommend You bring some rubber bands to help deter some cabinet exploration on the kitchen island.

    The cottage is delightful and very comfortable. It is a little misleading in the VRBO photos as to the location of the cottage in relation to nearby properties. One would not call it a normal lakeside setting, simply because of this.

    My best friend and I used the cottage as our home base to attend the Dickens of a Christmas festival in Ripon the first weekend in December and it was perfect. It was only a few minute drive to Ripon and an easy trip. The cottage was adorable and very nicely furnished. They had even added some classy Christmas decorations which really completed our stay. We walked to close by restaurants both nights for dinner and had great meals. We especially enjoyed our morning coffee in front of the fire with the view of the lake. Great place!

    We absolutely loved the cottage. It was immaculately clean. It was so charming and had the perfect balance of classiness and coziness. It was decorated so nicely; my husband and I discussed how refreshing it was to be in a nicely decorated, open, fresh space instead of the cliche northwoods motif that so many lake cottages use, which is so dark and often feels so dirty. The color scheme was so neat and added to the feeling of cleanliness. And the house offered every possible amenity and convenience one could need! That the boat launch was only yards away and that a dock slip is provided just feet from the door helped to streamline our getaway and ensure the most quality family time. The lake view was gorgeous, and the morning and evening sun off the lake was stunning. The ONLY “negative” I would include is that we didn’t know how close it was to other properties and how shared the outdoor space would be. That said, though, the neighbors were so nice that it certainly didn’t detract from our experience. What a find!!!

    My husband and I wanted to get away for a few days and chose Sunset Nook after reading the reviews and wanting a stand alone house, not a hotel or condo. We enjoyed the jetted tub, the fireplace and the fire bowl outside under the stars. The location is great -- walking distance to downtown and a little private yard to sit and enjoy the sunsets. The house had everything we needed and was nicely decorated and furnished, and very clean. One negative for anyone interested in fishing -- the cottage is on a pond that connects to the lake, and fishing isn't good on the pond. It's pretty weedy and shallow. We hadn't been to Green Lake in 25 years, and it hasn't changed much. Still small and quaint. Got to eat at Adam's Rib, Goose Blind and Little Corporal. Enjoyed golf and a nearby winery in Ripon. Tried to take a lake cruise on the Heidel House yacht, but they had engine trouble so couldn't go. Lucked out on the weather for late October! Faith the owner was great to work with. Would definitely recommend Sunset Nook to travelers heading to Green Lake!

    We really enjoyed our stay at your charming little cottage on the pond!

    We recently visited Green Lake and stayed at Sunset Nook Cottage. We love the quaint, quiet town of Green Lake and Sunset Nook Cottage is a great place to stay. It has all the comforts of home, a beautiful view of the bay from the lovely back porch (my favorite place to sit) and it's walking distance to many places to eat in downtown Green Lake. The cottage and the proximity to town really draws us. We've stayed in many locations around the lake, and we find that we like being in town best. Not only is the cottage and its location great, but so is Faith. She thinks of every comfort for her guests -from nice shampoo and soaps with plush towels in the bathroom to the welcome basket holding tea and honey, coffee and scone mix on the kitchen island. The Cottage is a delight, need I say more? We're regular folk and are drawn to the local eateries. We really like Adam's Rib with their daily specials, good food and reasonable prices. Christiano's has a good pizza, fresh salads and friendly servers and is very close by via car. Little Corporal has the fastest served breakfast in town and they mean it! We've had their pancakes, omelets and even the occasional ice cream cone and were two thumbs up. Okay so we like to eat on vacation, but walking around town and enjoying the lake views can give you an appetite. I say come to Green Lake and enjoy Sunset Nook Cottage and all it has to offer.

    This place is absolutely charming!!! Immaculate and comfortable!!

    Everything about our stay at the sunset nook cottage and green lake really was perfect... Location was steps away from a nice playground and only a few blocks away from the quaint town - an easy walk with young kids. The town has several restaurants, a few local shops and a candy store. And we were able to dock our boat right in front of the cabin and launch the boat rich around the corner. All so convenient. And I can't say enough about the cottage... Charming, so well decorated and Faith has everything you could need. Even fishing rods were made available, though we didn't get to fishing during our stay. As others have noted, the cottage is part of a condo complex, but it's a small complex and you don't even know it when you're in the cottage. The view is great. We even got to enjoy watching a pop-up hail storm move across the lake. It's the perfect part of the lake to enjoy a canoe or kayak ride. Maybe we'll get to that next time. Incredible vacation for us and our 3 young daughters. We're already looking for return dates!

Faith has thought of everything and their was nothing we lacked during our stay. We enjoyed looking out at the waterfowl on the beautiful lake from the dining room table when we got up in the morning and watched the beautiful sunsets each night. Having a canoe to paddle around in was wonderful as well. We felt so relaxed at the end of our stay that we felt a bit sad to leave and return to the grind of work.

We ate breakfast and window shopped in Princeton, checked out the historic Victorians in Berlin, sunbathed at Hattie Sherwood, rented a pontoon from Action Marina, fished with Tim, owner of Reel Em In fishing guide service (took home 10 walleye), rode our bikes and took nice walks. Ate at just about every local restaurant(I cook at home!)...enjoyed the pizza at Goose Blind, iced coffee at Sugar Lips, ice cream at Action Marina and the little ice cream shop down the road from Action Marina(can't remember the name...) and a nice dinner overlooking the lake at Nortons.

    The house and property were very well maintained. The cottage decor was A+ as well as all the furnishings....very comfortable, great back porch overlooking the pond to enjoy coffee in the AM and the sunset in the eve. Very quiet setting -- close to good restaurants, great parks, shopping and marina. The kids loved playing baseball and football in the huge lawn and park across the street. We spent several nights at the Deacon-Mill park enjoying the locally sponsored entertainment. The neighbors were super nice...they gave us the low-down on the local scene. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone and would come back for another stay anytime. Also, strongly recommend eating at Adams Rib and Riellys Pub....golfing at Tuscumbia. Tuscumbia has a fantastic par 3 family course....ideal for the young golfers. We also rented bikes in town and went on a nice ride on one of the many routes throughout the area. The only minor drawbacks were the weeds in the pond and the low clearance bridge that needed to be navigated thru to get to the lake. This really didn't bother us since Faith had told us in advance that swimming should take place at the beach on the lake and not in the pond. Our boat sits pretty low in the water so the bridge wasn't an issue. The pond was great for canoeing and fishing though. A great vacation spot for any and all.

    We just returned from our wonderful week vacation. We took our 7 year old daughter who was beyond excited to sleep in that bunk bed and our (terrible) two year old son. We went to the big shady park that is a super duper short hop skip and jump away every morning. We enjoyed the lake in the afternoon and even Wisconsin Dells one day. The house was so clean and comfortable. Faith has thought of everything! All of the comforts of home are an understatement. It did not feel like a rental cottage at all but more like a friend's house. We definitely hope to return!

    This was our 2nd opportunity to stay at Sunset Nook. As expected, Faith had everything we needed and the cottage was emaculate. She had even provided holiday decorations to add to the cottage's cozy, warm atmosphere. Since we arrived just before a snowstorm, she had made arrangements to have the driveway plowed and sidewalk shoveled. We enjoyed walking to Sugar Lips for our morning mocha and to Goose Blind for an evening pizza. Our grandson loved watching the ducks and geese swimming in the open water of the bay, as well as watching the ice fisherman and their shacks. This is truly our favorite place to stay, and we can't wait for our next visit this summer. If you're looking forward to a little bit of heaven Sunset Nook is your destination!

    The cottage was wonderful. The location near the town was great and we could walk to everything. The amenities were fabulous as was the interior decoration. The kitchen is very well equipped and had a nice supply of spices and condiments. We enjoyed Adam's Rib for dinner.

    My family and I stayed here over an extended weekend and fell in love with the cottage. It was perfect for us, very clean and so close to downtown. We loved waking up each morning and seeing the sun peeking over the water with the birds hanging out on the docks. It is a great place for a bit of relaxation while allowing you to be so close to town. Thank you so much for sharing your home with our family - it was exactly what we needed!

    Perfect Retreat for Seniors

    Sunset Nook Cottage is the ideal place for people of every age. However, for those looking for a senior-friendly vacation spot, this is it. Access into the home was managable for a senior with mobility limitations; only a couple of steps to get into the house. Ceiling fans and central air provided good air circulation and humidity management making it easy to breath. The views were fantastic and the peaceful surroundings made it a perfect retreat. This was our first trip in years. Medical conditions kept us home. FInding this home (it really feels like it) with all the right stuff (central air, walk-in shower, single story) gave us confidence to make the trip. Glad we did. Will be back.

    We had a great time at the cottage - with 7 people (one child) it was a bit cozy, but we didn't mind at all. Great location, amenities, and extremely clean and new. Thank you Faith!!

    A beautiful home that welcomes you.

    My dad and I had a wonderful time at Sunset Nook Cottage. Every part of our 3 day stay, was relaxing and very comfortable, instantly feeling like home. I spent the first afternoon fishing from the dock and caught a pan full of Bluegill that were very tasty. Then I fished for Northern Pike and ended up bringing 5 to the dock. One was about 30 inches but all gave me great fights. With the awesome sunsets, outstanding cottage and great fishing opportunity, we would come back in a heartbeat. Thank you so much Faith.

    We actually spent two weeks at Sunset Nook and had a wonderful, relaxing time. The cottage itself was just perfect. We had all the comforts of home at our fingertips. I especially enjoyed the front porch where I spent hours just 'being'. The photos and description of the home are very accurate. The place was spotless and ever so inviting. I did have an opportunity to meet Faith and I can't say enough about her. She was delightful in every way, full of energy and enthusiasm and helpful suggestions to enhance our stay. Thank you Faith for everything! For the most part, we enjoyed the close proximity of the town making it possible to walk to the Farmer's Market (yum!), and various restaurants. The town just has a good home-town type feel. Unpretentious in any way, slow and easy - perfect for getting away.

    Best Vacation Rental Ever

    My husband and I fall more in love with Green Lake and this rental each time we stay. Though the weather wasn't as cooperative as we would have liked, our stay was very restful and comfortable. Sunset Nook has everything you need to make you feel this is a home away from home. Faith has anticipated every need. I love the decor, the linens and that there is matching silverware, dishes and glasses, because how often does that happen? We know we'll be back, because we love the little yellow house! Thank you for a great stay. PS: This morning we saw a blue heron, fish actually jumping out of the water and a dark furry water mammal of some sort. Very cool!

    Sunset Nook is an amazing vacation rental. From the moment we entered the cottage, we knew we would have a great family vacation. The cottage's decor is beautiful, it is well maintained and extremely clean and was even more amazing than the pictures on the website. We were amazed at Faith's attention to details. She has provided everything you could possibly need and more. We felt very welcomed, and cozy. The setting is amazing! We were literally steps from the water. Sitting on the back porch was so peaceful and relaxing. The sunsets are beyond description. I would have been happy to spend our entire vacation time just being at the cottage. We appreciated that shopping and restaurants were in easy walking distance from the cottage. The Goose Blind pizza is fabulous. Our 18 month old grandson loved the park, which is just across the parking lot. We had a blast chasing him from one piece of equipment. He really loved watching and feeding the ducks that swam in the bay just outside the cottage's back door. When our vacation time came to an end we weren't ready to leave, but we knew that we would return to Sunset Nook again. Faith was great to work with. She went above and beyond to provide us with whatever we needed. She even provided us with a Pack N Play for our grandson. If you are looking for a vacation retreat Sunset Nook is the place to go. You will leave with memories and recharged to face whatever life has to offer.

    The moment I walked in I was taken with the charming beauty of this cottage. We spent a wonderfully relaxing anniversary weekend here and would go back in a heartbeat! What a beautiful place! The kitchen is fully stocked so you can bring all your own food and cook to your satisfaction. (Plus, the coffee maker is pretty sweet). It is the kind of location where you can do as much as you want or as little as you want. Just what you want for a vacation spot! We also enjoyed not driving the car at all for three days since you can walk pretty much everywhere! We went out for fish on Friday night to a local place and really loved being able to just walk across the pond to eat and visit all the cute local shops. If you choose to stay here for your vacation you will NOT regret it! It is also owned by a wonderful family that are so wonderful to rent from. Being able to make payments and handle everything online is also a huge plus! Thanks again for a wonderful time!

    We are regular Green Lake vacationers. Recently my husband and I spent a few days at Sunset Nook Cottage and feel I must share my experience. What a perfect dream! Arriving at the cottage we were excited about the location - downtown close to restaurants and shopping, only yards from the water with a great pier for dropping a fishing line into the water. And before we even entered the cottage, there hanging on the door knob, was a dry erase board with a message from Faith welcoming us to the cottage. We unlocked the door and were wowed with what we saw. What a beautifully decorated, maintained and inviting home. We thought to ourselves, How lucky are we to have found this cottage. We've rented numerous homes right on the lake, pricey homes, but none with the comfort and convenience of this home. We walked to breakfast at the Little Corporal, ate lunch at the Goose Blind, bought coffee at Sugar Lips and the visited the new second floor Endurance shop bringing home a number of treasures. G fished from the pier, and I enjoyed a hot cup of coffee while I read the Green Laker newspaper sitting on the two seater rocker on the back porch. What a thoroughly enjoyable, relaxing few days away from home. Later in the evening, as the sun set and the temperatures cooled we rocked together and chatted about our day. Like I said, it's a perfect dream. All the things I could want in a stay at Green Lake wrapped up in Sunset Nook Cottage. I could not ask for more. Thank you. J

    We rented this cottage in August and spent a wonderful week with our two adult children and one grandchild. The cottage was lovely; clean, modern, and beautifully furnished. Woke early every morning just to look out over the water at the birds and other wildlife. Spent most of the time on the water fishing and tubing. Cottage is right at the edge of town and borders a park. An art fair was in progress when we arrived. Faith was great to work with and very responsive. We will definitely be back.

    This home is all the others have said and more! The minute we walked in the front door, we were in love with it! What a true treasure it is. We have rented homes across the country before but I can honestly say this is the only place we have ever rented that felt like you were staying at home, or at the home of a close friend. My huband and I were with our children (16,14,10) and my brother-in-law with his son (8). I was afraid of being squished but it worked out perfectly with them sharing the pull-out. There are so many things about this home I could rave about, I'll try to cut it down! The decorating of the house is gorgeous. The fact that the lake is literally at your back door is awesome. The kids and dads rolled out of bed each morning and went fishing in the canoe they proveded. I sat on that amazing back porch and read my book ALL week! Location to town couldn't be better. You can walk to almost everything. We even brought our bikes and drove to the beach a few times (also, tennis courts across main street). But to me, the most important thing in a rental is cleanliness. I don't want to spend money and have my kids walk around a dirty floor. This place is spotless! When I went to bed every night, I commented on how I felt like I was in my own home. Clean new sheets, comforters, towels, etc..... Needless to say, if you're looking for a place to kick back and unwind, you'll have a tough time finding a place a peaceful and beautiful as this one. Thanks, Faith, for opening up your lovely home to us!! :)

    Serenity and Spectacular Sunsets

    Serenity, Peaceful, Relaxing and a Recharge on my batteries! This place is amazing! It looks exactly like the pictures; one of the most spectacular points is the sunsets, and wildlife in this picturesque bay on Big Green Lake. I barely left to sight see the place is so spectacular, the entire time I was there! A blender, a book and a fishing pole...what more do you need? The layout of the house is really nice as we a girl’s week, and I was fortunate enough to spent two days by myself. The house was big enough for 6 to feel comfortable, but small enough that I didn't feel lost when I was alone. The house is exceptionally clean and well maintained. Pretty much everything you need is within walking distance, just a short walk through the park to downtown shops, restaurants, tennis courts and beach. We brought our kayaks for additional exercise; the place is located at the end of Gold Street, quaint and quite. It was by far our pot of gold at the end of the “Rainbow” Looking at the pictures now reminds me of how much I want to go back!
