  • Great Family Getaway!

    "This unit is beautiful and very convenient! The unit has everything you could imagine that you would need. The location is perfect and so close to the Abbey Marina, Fontana Beach, Gordy's and Chucks! We had a great time and made some great memories! Chrissie was great to work with while renting the property. I would definitely recommend this unit! The pool was very nice as well."

  • Exceeded Expectations

    "My wife, 3 yr old, and 8 week old stayed here over Labor Day weekend. It was fantastic -- the place was extremely clean, nicely decorated, open, and comfortable. We'll certainly stay here again."

  • AMAZING.

    "Stayed here for a weekend with a bunch of friends. The drive from the city (Chicago) was super easy and the house was perfect. Room for everyone, tons to do, beautiful and well kept house, and GORGEOUS setting. We loved it so much we want to all go back next summer. Highly HIGHLY recommend! So sad the weekend is over! The checkout is 10:30-11am, which is a bummer because we would have loved to stay a little longer into the afternoon on Sunday. Only downfall - we didn't want to leave!!"

  • Family Gathering on the lake

    "Our entire family came to Vista Pointe for a family gathering. The home was very clean, well stocked, and perfect for a large family with small children. The playground in the front yard was perfect for the kids (9 kids aged between 3 and 11) to play with easy supervision from parents either in the large yard or from the kitchen. The front yard allowed us to set up a bag toss tournament as well as play t-ball with the kids. The back yard was perfect for the adults with a hot tub (already heated and ready for our arrival!), outdoor fireplace, and enough seating for all. Everything and anything we could think of was provided both in the home or in the garage for outdoor activities. The bedrooms were large and beds were comfortable. Two of the bedrooms have bunk beds in addition to queen beds to allow for those with larger families to fit comfortably. The air hockey and ping pong in the basement was loved by the children. All in all we could not have asked for more from a rental home. The home was quaint enough for us to feel close as a family yet large enough that we never felt cramped or on top of each other. Thank you for this amazing memory for our family."

Geneva Lake Travel Tips

Lake Geneva in southeast Wisconsin is within easy reach from Milwaukee, one of the most outstanding areas of natural beauty in the Midwest. Popular with Chicago residents, it has earned the nickname “Newport of the West.” Lake Geneva is lined with historic homes and estates with all manner of architectural styles in evidence from Gothic Revival to Arts and Crafts. These lovely mansions can all be viewed from the Lake Geneva shore path. Golfers, ladies’ groups, winter sports enthusiasts, and those taking part in a bachelor or bachelorette party weekend will certainly have fun in the area. The lake offers plenty of water sports and activities all year round.
