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 weddings, team building, couples, 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 semi-private sleeping areas in the second floor loft with two twin beds in each, for a total of 6 twin beds. There is also a sitting area with a wall mounted television and a queen-sized sofa sleeper, 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.

Our deepest thanks to the gracious owner, Wendy, for a wonderful girls weekend! The house was very charming with plenty of views of quaint Lake Como! The kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms were impeccably clean. The beds were comfortable with soft sheets, cozy blankets and thick lush pillows. The house provided everything you could think of except hair dryers, which was no big deal. There are plenty of paper products and towels available. We made dinner in one night and there were plenty of dishes, glasses, silver ware and serving pieces too. The home includes a nice bar with plenty of bar ware. Jigsaw puzzles and several fun games are a bonus too.

The home is next to a wonderful classic supper club called Mars. It has a famously delicious fish fry as well as other delicious food options and live music on the weekends. The owner said that people fly in on their seaplanes from all over in the summer just to go to this restaurant. For us, walking across the yard was a great option because we didn't have to worry about indulging a little and then driving!

Since this was a ladies weekend, we of course, wanted some fun shopping. A five minute drive into downtown Lake Geneva proved to supply some of the best clothing and specialty items shopping we have seen in a long time. We came from the Milwaukee area which has its share of great shopping, but not nearly the charming small business boutique shopping we found a mere 40 min drive away in downtown Lake Geneva!

We would love to return again because we know we only scratched the surface of this fun, beautiful area! Summers must be incredibly beautiful on this very friendly lake get away too!

What a wonderful, beautiful home! The house is perfect for a lake getaway.

It has everything you need. The owners obviously take pride in this property and our very easy to work with. Being next door to the Mars Restaurant is also a big plus. We were there in the winter, the summer would be even better. Would definitely rent this property again. Jean H.

Great place for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with a group of girls for a weekend getaway. The owner was incredibly helpful and even came out and salted the driveway early in the morning after an ice storm. Would definitely come back again.
