“You stayed where?!” in Walworth County

One of my favorite parts about the beautiful Lake Geneva area is the wide variety of accommodations we have for visitors. From rustic camping to lavish resorts, historic mansions to scenic lakeside vacation hotels, we have a place that would make anyone say “now THAT is a cool place to stay!” Here are just a few of our popular & unique places to stay…

Baker House | 327 Wrigley Drive, Lake Geneva
(262) 248-4700
The history of this mansion alone is intriguing – throughout the years, this historic mansion has been a summer cottage, a sanitarium, a speakeasy, and hotel/restaurant.  Today, the Baker House has been restored to its original glory while transforming the first floor into rooms for dining and second floor into luxurious suites.  This, however, is not your average restaurant or hotel!  Stepping into the Baker House is like stepping back in time…from the costumed staff to the intricately-decorated rooms, you will feel as though you have been invited for dinner at a friend’s home in the 19th century.  The four suites on the second floor are just as beautifully decorated – and an overnight stay at the Baker House includes a butler and chamber maid to attend to you during your stay!

Camp Wandawega | W5453 Lake View Drive, Elkhorn
Those looking for an old-fashioned camp feel will find what they’re looking for at Camp Wandawega!  This vintage camp (and its rustic cabins) offer overnight stays for those looking to find the simple pleasures in life.  Their rustic and vintage cabins are not for everyone, but the decor and entire camp is sure to transport you to a simpler time.  They offer four cabins of varying sizes, all available for booking through airbnb.com.  Get away from it all at Camp Wandawega!

Geneva Inn | N2009 S. Lake Shore Drive, Lake Geneva
(262) 248-5680
Geneva Inn is the only lakeside hotel on Geneva Lake and, because of this, offers extraordinary views of the lake for its guests.  Their on-site restaurant, Grandview Restaurant & Lounge, boasts a scenic view of the lake from every table!  With the lake just steps away, you’ll feel worlds away from your stress when staying at the Geneva Inn.

Grand Geneva Resort | 7036 Grand Geneva Way, Lake Geneva
(262) 248-8811
Originally built & opened in 1968, Grand Geneva was first known as the Lake Geneva Playboy Club Hotel (the first Playboy Club Hotel to open in the US!).  For over 45 years, this beautiful resort has been attracting people from all over the US because of its luxurious guest rooms, well-groomed golf courses, and attractive property grounds.  Grand Geneva offers a full-service spa, two championship golf courses, on-site dining, indoor/outdoor water park, and ski grounds, in addition to its many other resort amenities.

Maxwell Mansion | 421 Baker Street, Lake Geneva

Now owned by the owners of Baker House, Maxwell Mansion was originally a summer home for a prominent Chicago surgeon, Dr. Philip Maxwell.  Throughout the years, it was been the overnight place of choice for many famous faces – including General Grant and Nancy Davis (President Reagan’s wife).  Today, the mansion offers five beautiful suites, each themed after famous figures and authors.  Grand events are also held here throughout the year, including cabaret shows and murder mystery dinners.
