Lake Geneva Home with Private Beach, Pier, Lakefront Fire Pit, Golf | Fun Times!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Aug 28, 2016
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. 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 flat screen 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 farm for picking up the street and plenty of other fun seasonal things to do and see.

This is a great home to spend time with family and friends. The lake is beautiful and the sunsets even better! Wendy is a fantastic host who went out of her way to make sure we had a wonderful family vacation. We have made this our place for a family getaway the past two years and will continue the tradition!

Beautiful home located right on the water

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly how it is described- the pictures do not do it justice. It was beautiful, with a large yard for games and relaxing. Located right next to a cute bar/restaurant that had live music outside all weekend long. Also, not far from town or Lake Geneva and a small convenience store with liquor, beer, and snacks.

Wendy, the owner, was fantastic. She was incredibly polite and thoughtful. She did live next store, which initially disturbed our group, but she kept to her own and did not bother us. In fact, she offered us use of her yard games and rafts.

I would absolutely recommend this property to your friends or relatives!

We hung out at the house, floated near the dock, went to Mars (next door), went into town to shop, ate at several local cafes/restaurants (all were delicious) and rented a boat at Marina Bay.

The only downside was that Lake Como is much dirtier than Lake Geneva, but it was okay.

Relaxing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to unwind, kickback, and just enjoy! The home ,inside and out, is as pictured and described, but you just can't measure the full WOW factor of the view without being there! From steam rising off the lake early morning to incredible sunsets, it's spectacular!

This lake home is family-friendly, so immaculate, with a well-stocked kitchen, plenty of deck and yard seating, and a loft that is so spacious! Our adult children had all the room they needed to spread out, yet still have some privacy. Plenty of seating in the kitchen and dining room. Very tastefully decorated - we had a very hard time leaving!

Wendy is professional, friendly, and accessible, providing a wealth of information about the area. Mars Resort next door is an added bonus! Great music on the weekends, delicious food, and a strictly maintained noise ordinance - no worries about noise beyond 11pm!

Plenty to do and then some between Lake Como and Lake Geneva, with only a short drive between. Lake Geneva Downtown area is charming with many choices for dining and shopping. Take advantage of beautiful Geneva Lake by accessing the beach, taking a cruise, or walking the Shoreline Path - stunning! Milwaukee is an easy hour drive away - had a wonderful day exploring there as well!

We won't hesitate to return to the area - in fact, it's one of our new favorite vacation spots based on our week there! Our children have already let us know that they'd love to return at some point for another family vacation - and we fully agree! Thank you, Wendy!

Excellent home/property for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The home is inviting, clean, spacious and near many local attractions for young children and adults. The home has everything from kitchen cooking needs, flat screen TVs in each bedroom, board games, internet, and summer activities by the lake. Two toddlers, a 10 month old baby and six adults on a private beach with a big lawn to run around was a plus to choosing this home. There was plenty of room in the home for all of us. Wendy was very accommodating and friendly to work with. I would recommend this home for a vacation.

Early Summer Stay at Lake Como 2016

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for 5 nights (all adults) to attend our son's wedding at Lake Geneva. The house is just a short drive from Lake Geneva which the landlord told us ahead of time. Both, Wendy and her husband were really easy to work with and extremely accommodating. The house was nice and clean, well stocked and just a joy to stay in. They even had water toys in the basement to use and since the property is right at the lake, it was a lot of fun for even our adult children to use them.

We would recommend this property to any of our friends. BTW - Harry's was an awesome place to have breakfast.
