since you live in the north with all of us cool brewers. use a swamp chiller in the winter in your coldest room of your house wrap a t-shirt around your carboy and stick a therm in there...i did my first few lagers this way b4 i got temp controlled freezers. if your into all grain look into my bud clone. got good reviews from yooper a few yrs ago

I've used Kolsch yeasts in cream ales, lawnmower beers, etc and have gotten lager-like results. Not perfect, but pretty darn good, and they're much easier to make than true lagers.

You might also consider WLP-810 San Francisco Lager yeast. I've used it without all that great of temp control and gotten very nice results.
