About the property

3 Bed, 2 Full Baths, sleeps 8, Partial Lake Views from Home & Large Patio

An idyllic summer lake escape is awaiting you at 'The Guest House' at Club Unique! The original home was built in the early 1900s. It was designed to accommodate guests of the owners of the main estate who occupied the home next door, directly on the lake. A major renovation, including the addition of a second floor, make it the modern home it is today. Perfect for a family who wants to enjoy Lake Geneva as the locals do, tucked within the small south shore community of Club Unique, just one house off the lake. Partial lake views available from various rooms throughout the home as well as from the large outdoor patio. The bright and and colorful interior will keep the summer days alive, even after the sun sets.

Featuring a fabulous screened porch with comfortable wicker furniture and a table for a family game of Scrabble, or the Sunday cross-word puzzle. You can also relax on the 200+ sq ft. patio with lake views and a large lawn in front for the kids to kick a ball, play a game of badmidden or chase fireflies. They can also ride their bikes around the neighborhood on our private roads and stay within sight of Mom and Dad. The patio provides plenty of space for socializing including seating for 10, a dining area, grill and a fire-pit for roasting smores on cool summer nights. This three bedroom home includes a formal living room which can be open or closed off to the family/television room. There is a private office on the first floor available for those who need to work from home - free Wi-Fi internet connectivity available. There is also a buoy available for rental conveniently located on property at our private neighborhood pier.

Walk out the front door of our home, turn left and you are just a few steps from the lake. We are conveniently located about a mile from The Abbey Resort and Spa, several restaurants with indoor and outdoor seating, coffee joints, shops, the public beach and boat and jet ski rentals. And it’s only a 15 minute drive to downtown Lake Geneva if you feel like a little shopping or exploring.

Let The Guest House become your family's tradition for an amazing summer at the lake!

About Lisa Dymek

The home was originally purchased from 'two spinsters' by a young man returning from war back to the states. He purchased the home to impress the girl he wanted to marry. Today the home is owned by his two sons and their wives. I guess it worked!

Lisa Dymek purchased this house in 1952

Why Lisa Dymek chose Geneva Lake

Fontana is a great location on the Southwest end of Lake Geneva. ‘The Guest House’ is located in a great neighborhood with lots of room for kids to ride bikes on our private roads or run around in the open spaces. Walk out the front door of our home, turn left and you are just a few steps from the lake. We are conveniently located about a mile from The Abbey, several restaurants with indoor and outdoor seating, coffee joints, shops, the public beach and boat and jet ski rentals. And it’s only a 15 minute drive to downtown Lake Geneva if you feel like a little shopping or exploring.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 just finished our stay at Club Unique in Fontana on Lake Geneva. I am visiting from out of town so I had asked my sister who spends a lot of time in Fontana at Belvedere Park to find me a weekly summer rental similar to her neighborhood as close to the lake as possible. She found us a hidden gem that exceeded all of our expectations. The house and neighborhood are ideal for families or those looking for a peaceful week on the lake. The home is situated 1 house back from the Lake in a beautiful wooded setting so walking to the lake took all of two minutes. The pier is in the prefect location just west of Rainbow Point in a secluded cove ideal for swimming, kayaking or SUP. We enjoyed every time of the day at this property, the outside porch is ideal for cocktails or dinner or the screened in porch if you need to escape the heat or bugs.The rooms were all nicely appointed and two sleep number beds, bathrooms were clean, had great water pressure and plenty of hot water. My favorite hotel is the Montage in Laguna Beach if you need a reference point as to the type of vacations I like to take, I was very impressed with this rental property it's not your typical rental. I will be returning.
