Traveling through Green Lake, you may enjoy seeing the homes and estates along the lake or within the historic Green Lake Conference Center grounds. A charming bed and breakfast, picturesque Victorian, or grandiose lake house, whatever the cause of the pause, one thing is for certain, you can’t help but notice the beautiful architecture. This is why visitors and residents can’t wait for the annual Green Lake Tour of Homes.

Each year, the Green Lake Tour of Homes invites guests on a self-guided tour into several area residential homes, historic homes, vacation rentals, and bed and breakfasts. The eclectic mix ranges from original cottages along the shoreline to estates with incredible views from the highest elevations around the lake.

This year’s tour will take place on Sunday, October 11, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at several locations for $20 in advance or on the day for $25. Proceeds go toward an international project with local ties: Capuchin Missionary. Father Wally Kasuboski of Ripon has been living and working in Panama since 1988. His work includes water projects providing fresh mountain water daily to the local and indigenous people, numbering 7,000 plus. Over 100 supporters and volunteers from Green Lake, Berlin, Ripon, and beyond have traveled to Panama at their own expense to work with him on annual mission trips with their professional expertise, physical labor, and financial support.

You won’t believe these homes are right here in the Green Lake area. Tour locations will be announced closer to the event date. For updates and ticket locations, please visit .
