About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 12

Enjoy breathtaking views from this beautiful and immaculate year-round Lake Geneva home on one of Wisconsin's prettiest lakefronts. This fully furnished home is located on Lake Como, which is a quiet, non-crowded lake with a shallow bottom and provides 180 degrees of lake viewing.

The lake is approximately 10 feet at it's deepest, so it's a perfect lake for boating, tubing, waterskiing, swimming, fishing and more. In fact, there are World Barefoot Waterski Champions that live and train on the lake!

The house is located just three miles west of Downtown Lake Geneva and all the shopping, entertainment, theaters and restaurants it has to offer. You'll also be steps away from the famous Mars Resort Bar & Restaurant with a piano bar and outdoor seating on the lake. They serve great food in a fun and comfortable setting and have outdoor entertainment occasionally on summer afternoons by the lake, which can be enjoyed from this house! In the evenings, the restaurant is busy, but it's a quiet dining crowd.

The backyard is large and private, with a fence separating the house from the restaurant next door. There's a small private beach and pier with a boat slip to accommodate your own boat or one that you rent during your stay. We have a couple contacts for boat rentals and private water ski schools and would be happy to share them with you. The pier is typically in the water from April-October, depending on the weather.

The home has a wrap around deck with a seating area, outdoor fireplace and a BBQ grill on the first floor and a 2nd floor balcony, all overlooking Geneva National Golf Club, with its three 18 hole championship golf courses. Several more courses are just a short drive away, making the house perfect for golfers---but of course not limited to them. The house is also an ideal destination for team building, couples, girls weekends, families, and adult groups of friends.

The house has an open floor plan with a kitchen that seats 8, opening to the living room with an additional dining table for 4 and couches, all overlooking the lake. There's a two-sided fireplace, a flat screen television with a DVD player along with a Bose Wave Sound System that can accommodate your music library on your smart phone or a CD.

There are two first floor bedrooms with queen beds in each, both have wall mounted televisions. There are also three bedrooms with closets on the second floor with two twin beds in each, for a total of 6 twin beds. There is also a 2nd floor living room with a wall mounted television and a queen-sized sofa sleeper with a memory foam mattress, giving the house a total occupancy of 12. We also have a portable crib and a high chair for those traveling with babies and there is a full size washer and dryer on the second floor. There are also two full bathrooms, one on each level.

This is an amazing home with a great location. Not only will you be in the center of all the fun, but you'll be able to enjoy the most magnificent sunsets in all of Lake Geneva from the house, yard, pier and deck. For the lucky ones staying for the 4th of July, you'll have an unobstructed view of the spectacular Geneva National fireworks display that will take place directly across the lake. You won't have to fight crowds and find parking, but instead will be able to enjoy them from the comfort of this home.

The local resorts have year round activities to keep our visitors busy all year. Winter is a great time to visit, as we are located near two ski hills, with ice fishing on the lake, great cross country skiing, ice skating and sledding nearby. Autumn is a beautiful time, as well, with gorgeous foliage throughout the area including breathtaking views across the lake. There are also orchards for apple picking and many fall and Halloween events to enjoy. Spring, too, is a great time. With the ice gone, Lake Como and Geneva come back to life! There is a strawberry and blueberry farm for picking up the street and plenty of other fun seasonal things to do and see.

For larger groups, we have a second vacation rental property located about eight houses east on the same block. This house is Vacation Rentals #4706188 and sleeps 12 people.

Love at first sight

  • 5 of 5

This home-away is as beautiful as its lakefront setting. It is sparkling clean; beautifully decorated and complete with everything you need for a restful, relaxing lake retreat. The beds were super comfy and our kids enjoyed the games and sand toys provided. A wise friend once advised: "the best thing you can give your family is memories" and we made lots of good ones this weekend (including a pontoon boat rental on Lake Geneva - such fun). We'll definitely be back.

Bachelorette Party Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house had adequate seating for 11 of us and we used the kitchen to make a few dinners for our group which had almost everything we needed in regards to kitchen utensils and gadgets. Great location literally just steps from Mars where we enjoyed the entertaining bartenders and piano music along with dinner one night. Close to the Ridge's, where we enjoyed their fitness center and spa services. We used Senior cabs to take us downtown Lake Geneva and it was reliable and affordable. Overall a perfect weekend! Thank you.

Beautiful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We hosted a leadership retreat at this home. It was a perfect location for renewal, recharging and planning for our future! The home has a great layout and is nicely furnished. Beautiful views of the lake and surrounding countryside. We’ll definitely be return guests.
