About Wendy Murphy
I live in the Lake Geneva area with my family and know the community inside and out. I am happy to share all the best places to eat, shop and fun things to do, to help you make the most of your Lake Geneva vacation! I created and run the website Best of Lake Geneva to help visitors and locals find fun things to do while they are here. It will be helpful during your stay with us.
Wendy Murphy purchased this House in 2018
Why Wendy Murphy chose Lake Geneva
This home was built in the 1880's and was a popular hang out for Chicago gangsters including Bugs Moran and Baby Face Nelson. When Bugs and his wife were divorced, the owner of this home married Bug's ex-wife Lucille and she ran a casino and speakeasy in the basement during prohibition.
What makes this House unique
The home is meticulous and has been updated throughout. The history of this home has been integrated into the artwork throughout to help you understand how each of the infamous characters were connected to this home. It's a one-of-a-kind experience and a vacation you'll remember for a lifetime!

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.
Beautiful lakeside home
My family booked this house to accommodate 15 of us and we were more than comfortable in this gorgeous home. It has an interesting history to it and is elegantly furnished! We will stay here anytime we visit Lake Geneva! ❤️❤️❤️
