The Great Room
The living spaces have been custom designed to accommodate large group entertaining, as well as smaller intimate gatherings. You will also find cozy areas throughout the house to sit and reflect or just curl up and read a good book.
The Lodge’s open concept allows the Great Room to be the epicenter of the home. The dining and living area, gourmet kitchen and reading and nature observatory, flow seamlessly together allowing for maximum entertaining and enjoyment.
The Outdoor Spaces
Step onto one of the 2 oversized decks where you can ‘see for miles’. Fire up the gas grill and enjoy a meal or open a bottle of wine with friends and family. It is not uncommon to spot a deer or two here.
During the summer months, you will hear the relaxing sounds of the waterfall feature that flows gently into an in-ground sitting pool. Lounge chairs are provided for your convenience to relax in the sun and enjoy the beautiful sights and sounds of the countryside. Walking paths are located throughout to.
As the sun goes down, let the fire pit located steps from the deck warm everyone from head to toe. Watch the fire dance while toasting marshmallows and listening to the quite of nature.
They say the heart of a home is its kitchen. That couldn’t be more true.
The Lodge’s gourmet kitchen is open to the Great Room and surrounded by plenty of bar stools. This kitchen layout creates the perfect stage to sit with friends and family while you orchestrate your next delicious meal.
Channel your inner chef and whip up a gourmet spread for 10 or prepare an intimate meal for 2. This kitchen has been stocked with everything you need and then some.
Open to the Great Room, the Lodge’s custom made communal table seats 8 to 10 comfortably. Plenty of room to enjoy a meal, display your tasty appetizers or set up your delicious buffet.
The Lodge’s sizeable bedrooms are designed to allow guest the opportunity to break away from the larger group and spend some private time or reflect on the day.
The Master Suite:
Our master suite is conveniently located on the main level. Enjoy a hot shower or a soak in the separate bath tub. Wash away the strain and tension of your day-to-day life. Better yet, let your stress fade to peaceful calm in the master’s private 2 person infra-red sauna with stereo.
The Bedroom Suite:
This bedroom suite has its own private entry to the upper level bath and beautiful views of nature. Plenty of room to sit and read the paper or plan a day exploring.
Oversized Bedroom/Living Suite:
This bedroom/living suite is perfect for those in your party who may need a little more privacy. This oversized room has its own living area equipped with a couch and cable TV and desk adjacent to its bedroom area. Ideal for those traveling with a little one(s) or teenagers, as it’s large enough to accommodate their unique needs.
Strategically located in the home, the little one(s) will not be disturbed by noise coming from the Great Room. Teens (or the teens at heart) will love this room with its air hockey, foosball and pool table.
The Kids Room:
Your kids will love this room that has been cleverly decorated -just for them. The 2 twin beds are positioned perfectly to view the TV (VHS videos only) to lull them to sleep. A large assortment of children’s videos are provided for them to enjoy.
Rather read them a story? Enjoy the rooms reading nook. Choose from our library of kid’s books or bring their favorites with you. Kids are sure to delight in this perfect setting for reading a book or making up your own tall tale.
We know that traveling with the little one could be stressful. Let us lighten your load. The Lodge has a high chair, baby monitor, stroller and a playpen. We can arrange to have them waiting for you when you arrive.

About the owner: We're the Spieker's and this is our rescue pooch- Ace. We purchased this beautiful home for our blended family to spend weekends. I'm a Fine Arts major with am emphasis in Design from California and my husband is a Business and Social Studies major from Wisconsin. As with many others, our careers took us on a slightly different path. We both have built our careers in Commercial Real Estate for many years. As Real Estate professionals, we've done our fair share of traveling. This has certainly given us an advantage in knowing what it takes to have memorable travel and lodging experience. We've gone out of our way to provide all the comforts of home, while focusing on the details. It's a tall order to host both small and large groups in a home this size- but we're more than qualified and certainly up for the challenge. We live and work in Chicago, so the time at the Lodge was and still is very special. It is an unbelievable place to get away, relax and enjoy friends and family. It's the location of many of our own family reunions and get together with friends from all over the world. It is our plan to leave the Lodge to our kids so that they too will have a 'home base' for their own families and remember all of the wonderful times we spent there when they were young. This is truly a special place. We hope you enjoy the Lodge as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Geneva, WI, USA:
Clearview Lodge is a unique property that is best described by the feeling you get when you step into the door. Minutes from the charm of Downtown Lake Geneva, but far enough to enjoy nature at its best. The 25 foot vaulted ceilings gives you the feeling of spaciousness, while spruce ceiling and walls provide that cozy feeling of a Northwood's Lodge. From the home's decks and through the Great Room's wall to ceiling windows allows for a one of a kind view.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Do you ever live or stay in a home and think..'it sure would be nice if this room was adjacent to this room? Or the kitchen layout would be so much better if it had this was instead of that? This custom made home has the most thoughtful and intuitive design I have ever seen. The previous owner was a tradesmen and it shows throughout the construction of this very special home. The craftsmanship in this home is absolutely impeccable.
