Dreaming of Walworth County

With the safer at home order extended until May 26th, we suspect you are feeling a little cooped up right now. We are finding our minds wandering often to better days, thinking about where we will travel next.

For many, we long for summer days spent lakeside on Geneva Lake, crisp morning hikes through Four Seasons Nature Preserve, and indulgent afternoons taking in the many shops and restaurants Walworth County has to offer.

Just because we cannot travel right now, does not mean we cannot dream of the coming days when we can.  We want to encourage you to dream, to be inspired and to plan. That is why we would like to bring Walworth County to your home – with beautiful pictures, emotional videos and entertaining stories.

Whether you’re looking for  luxe resort-style accommodations at Grand Geneva, family friendly cabins at Camp Wandawega, or secluded cozy cottages at Seven Oaks Bed and Breakfast, your next getaway is just on the horizon.

We want to share with you experiences like a signature Lake Geneva Cruise Line lake tour, or a virtual tour of the East Troy Electric Railroad Museum Depot.  We want to bring the stories of Black Point Estate and Garden to life, right in front of your eyes.  We want to share the stories and craft behind our favorite brews from East Troy Brewery.
