Since the age of 16, my dream was to build a vacation getaway home on a golf course that my entire family could enjoy. That dream came true 25 years later in 1992 when my wife and I built this beautiful ranch home in SE Wisconsin at the Geneva National complex. Now, our entire family (3 married children, their spouses and our 5 grandchildren) all look forward to coming here.....our Geneva National 'home away from home'. Come see why we like it so much. I know you will enjoy it as much as we do.
This house is great for family fun, golf outings, reunions or even work retreats. From the fully stocked kitchen to the Great Room to the huge outdoor patio to the finished basement, this home will perfectly fulfill your need for a long weekend getaway.
The home has 7 bedrooms with a total of two king size beds, a queen size bed and seven twin beds. There are 3 FULL bathrooms and 2 half baths. Four bedrooms are located upstairs and three are in our newly completed 2,000 sq. ft basement.
Our Kitchen is large...360 sq. ft. It is fully stocked and includes a cook top gas stove, oven and a micro-wave. Between the kitchen table, the bar that separates the kitchen and the Great Room and the table in the adjoining full season porch area, up to 16 people can all eat at once.
The 650 sq. ft. Great Room contains a wood burning/gas fireplace with a 52' TV that includes cable, DVR, VHS and disc player and ample seating area.
The 360 sq. ft. all season porch is a wonderful gathering area. (It has been the site of many of our 'intense' family scrabble, trivial pursuit and poker games.)
The porch leads outside to our 600 sq. ft. stone patio that we just installed two years ago. The patio contains a fire pit, a patio table and two patio umbrellas.
Our backyard is huge (approx. 1/4 acre) and it's the perfect size for just about any outdoor games you wish to play. Adjacent to the back yard is the fairway for the beautiful par 4 10th hole on the Arnold Palmer course. The backyard faces directly west where, from the patio, we have a perfect view to watch the sunset.
The home is centrally located approx. 5 miles west of downtown Lake Geneva, 5 miles east of Delavan and 5 miles south of Elkhorn. Both Lake Geneva and Delavan feature large lakes for boating, swimming, tubing, and fishing. Sight-seeing tours are conducted on Lake Geneva. If shopping is your pleasure, there are plenty of specialty and retail spots in all three towns. Restaurants abound in the area.
Give us a call we'll answer any questions you might have.

Think of our home as your home away from home. Your comfort and enjoyment is our primary concern. Please let us know how we can help in that regard. In the summer months, if you are planning to use the pool or lakes, you may want to bring some extra towels with you as we only provide enough bath towels for the number of guests (one per guest up to 15 maximum). ...moreless

About the owner: We are a family that lives in a west suburban Chicago location. We have three children (all married) with five grandchildren.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Geneva: We wanted a family vacation spot on a golf course close to where we live full time so that we could minimize the travel time from our regular home to our vacation home.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Geneva National is a gated community that houses full time residents as well as part-time residents such as us. In addition to playing golf on the three championship courses that are located within the Geneva National complex, we enjoy the beautiful swimming pool, tennis courts, biking and walking paths all located within the Geneva National complex. We also enjoy going into the neighboring towns especially Lake Geneva and Delavan where boating, fishing and water sports abound. There are plenty of shopping, restaurants and sights to see. Of course, the headliner is the beautiful Lake Geneva itself located in the heart of Lake Geneva a few steps from downtown Lake Geneva where we always find plenty of parking.
