Nestled on the northeastern shores of Geneva Lake in southeast Wisconsin, Lake Geneva has been a resort community since just after the Civil War when wealthy Chicago families discovered the site and began building summer homes amidst the lush countryside.Today, the elegant, often historic estates still ring the lake and the famed 21-mile shore path continues to allow access to the backyards of these majestic homes allowing unprecedented views of magnificent landscape architecture.
Less than one hour from both the Chicago area and Milwaukee, Lake Geneva boasts a wealth of unique dining and shopping options, and lodging choices with the latter ranging from luxury spa resorts to rustic inns to lovely B&B’s. The area also offers splendid golf courses designed by such icons as Trevino, Player, Palmer, Nicklaus and Dye; pristine nature areas; and a wealth of attractions including Yerkes Observatory, Black Point Estate, Geneva Lake Museum of History, East Troy Electric Railroad and the U.S. Mailboat Tour.
Known as the “Newport of the West”, Lake Geneva “Has Always Been The Place” and was designated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 2009 as one of America’s “Dozen Distinctive Destinations.” The area is the ideal destination for groups of any size and of all interests.
