About Green Lake

20130913_154740Green Lake, Wisconsin is the oldest resort community west of Niagra Falls. As far back as 1800, the unspoiled and natural setting drew wealthy families from Illinois and Missouri to Green Lake. Today, that beauty and peacefulness remain here at Maplewood.

Green Lake is seven miles long, about two miles wide and is the deepest inland lake in Wisconsin at 237 feet deep. A wonderful lake, it offers the finest recreational boating and fishing opportunities in a non-crowded, pristine environment.

Green Lake is known for golfing, fishing, boating and outdoor activities. There are three fine golf courses in Green Lake – Tuscumbia, Wisconsin’s oldest golf course, Mascoutin and the renowned Golf Courses of Lawsonia. There are miles of bucolic roads and trails to explore, and close access to one of the finest nature sanctuaries to be found anywhere, the Horicon Marsh.

You will find eclectic shopping and a wonderful variety of restaurants in Green Lake. Quick bites, casual cuisine, homemade family style, and intimate bistro and elegant gourmet dining, inside or on the water – whatever suits your taste.

Green Lake has a wonderful library with Internet access, an active historical society and museum, a fully restored historic opera house, year-round festivals and shows. The area offers these and many other cutural opportunities in a quiet rural setting of unparalleled beauty.
