Nothing Short of Perfect
Our stay at Wendy's property was nothing short of perfect! We ended up having to change our wedding plans due to COVID-19 and decided to rent this property to have a small ceremony with just our immediate family. The rooftop deck was perfect for our ceremony and to also capture beautiful pictures overlooking the lake. There are a few living room type areas which was excellent. The ladies used the upstairs one which also includes a bathroom and kitchen area (with refrigerator, sink and Keurig) so we had all the things we needed while we enjoyed that time getting ready together. While the ladies were upstairs getting ready, the gentleman got ready together in the downstairs living room and kitchen area. Our day was nothing short of perfect here!
There is some pretty neat history to the place which Wendy so graciously gave us a tour and told us all about it! The house itself was beautiful and perfect. The yard and all it offers (yard games, kayaks, beach with sand, fire pit, picnic table, grill, etc) was outstanding. Wendy was amazing! She went above and beyond to check to make sure we had everything we needed, gave us a tour and told us the history of the place, told us about some cool spots to check out in the area if we were interested, etc. What warms my heart most, is she gave us
a wrapped gift of a beautiful wall hanging of different places in the Lake Geneva area which will hang in our home forever since this place now holds a very special place in our hearts. It was such a sweet and generous gesture that made our hearts feel so warm. To say Wendy is amazing is an understatement. She was unbelievable in every way. We will absolutely be back in the near future but in the more distant future, we'll be bringing our kids here someday to show them where we got married and introduce them to Wendy - the woman who warmed our hearts with her graciousness and played a big part in making our day feel so special.
The Great Escape
This house is exceptional and exceeded all of our expectations. We needed an escape and this home and its history made for a fantastic setting. Don't miss the chance to stay here.
This was a girl cousins getaway weekend, and we loved being at this property. Beautiful location, wonderful house and amenities, providing a great place to chill and relax with each other and shut out the world for a little while. And the house’s history was a fun bonus!
The perfect B-Day celebration
We plan to come back!
Great space for a large group of couples
Beautiful location. A house with great style and history. The perfect layout for our group of adult couples. Everyone had their own private space to sleep. A nice big dining table for our whole group of 14 to sit at together. Cozy spaces to hang out and visit. The only bad part was I didn't bring my ice skates to take advantage of the smooth lake ice right out the back door! Perfect location to stay and see the Ice Castles.
There are many great dining and entertainment destinations within walking distance to this home. The French Country Inn and its Farm to Fork French inspired fine dining restaurant is just a few houses away and Mars Resort Piano Bar and Restaurant and Crafted Americana at the Ridge Hotel are just a block away. Freddie's West End and In the Drink and all are accessable by boat.
Year round physical activities are prevalent and include several top golf courses, skiing at Alpine Valley, Wilmot and Grand Geneva, fishing, boating and swimming on Lake Como, Lake Delavan and Geneva Lake.
Autumn is a special time due to the spectacular Fall colors.
There are also two ziplining facilities, bowling alleys, golf, movie theaters, miniature golf, petting zoo and many wonderful shops are within minutes of the house.
