Recent Geneva Lake reviews

  • House with games on a quiet lake

    "We had a great time with our family get together for a long weekend at Cathy's home. The house fit us as 3 couples with children. The game room was a big hit with a pool table, ping pong and fuseball. The lake is beautiful and quiet which we enjoyed because we like to sit by the lake and fish. The Kettle Morraine State Forest is so close and has great hikes. We would rent this house again and recommend it. Cathy was a nice host and takes good care of her home."

  • Amazing home!!

    "My review is late, I apologize. My mom, her friends, my sister, and our friends spent a long weekend at this property last Labor Day weekend (8/2013). We had the best time! Thank you Jan and John for opening your home to us! This house is absolutely gorgeous with the perfect location on the lake and to town. We ate dinner in town one night at an Italian restaurant and the next night we went into downtown lake Geneva. There is so much space in this home it's perfect for large groups! The kitchen also had everything you we need; It felt like home! Thank you again! We hope to be back one day!"

  • Perfect location for our family

    "We stayed a week at the condo. The condo was very cute in its decorations and was very roomy and comfortable. The bedrooms and bathrooms were nicely appointed and the view from the family room and bedrooms was very pretty. Lots of green space and a view of the swimming pool. Everything you might need, such as glassware, dishes, coffee pot, etc was available. It had all the comforts of home. Something really nice is how clear Jim, the owner was in his directions, from the TV to the WIFI, to the laundry and AC, it was all clearly explained. Suggestions for restaurants, and restaurant delivery and local events were listed too. If you felt you had an additional question, Jim was readily available. Texting worked quite well for us, but he always encourage a phone call if needed. The place is close to restaurants, grocery stores, and the beautiful lake and Abby Resort. The proximity to the swimming pool was ideal. It was an quick walk and visible from the condo, but not too close. We had our little grandchildren visit for a couple of nights and they loved the pool and the nearby property of the Abby Resort. I can't say enough nice things about our experience. I can highly recommend this as a great place to stay if you want something in the Fontana/Lake Geneva area. We really had a terrific time!"

    "We have stayed at the Grand Geneva Villas every year for the past ten years and have always found it very pleasant with many things to do . Hiking, skiing, swimming, using the fitness center and enjoying beautiful decorations during the Hoilday Season,along with Christmas activities at the hotel. Lake Geneva is close by for shopping and sightseeing and the lake is beautiful. The staff was very professional and friendly. The rooms clean and modern with everything one would need. Thank you to the owner for great communication.We will come again!"
