No it wasn't great. It was an inexcusable disappointment! Not sure what more I can say, other than our reservations were cancelled on us 3 hours prior to arriving because they overbooked! Did I mention this is a destination resort? And they did nothing to find us comparable losing for a prepaid res made 6 months in advance.

Lake Geneva has nothing really new for repeat visitors. Rented a boat for a couple hours and explored the lake. This was amazing and well worth the $$$. Some amazing properties to view and appeared to be a better value than the jet skis. The guided boat tours available from the dock seem geared toward older crowds and a bit... More

Lake Geneva is a very comfortable place to relax and get away from the big city life. Friendly people, nice facilities, and clean air. We have been there in all four seasons and it is worth the trip any time of the year.

For us lake Geneva is just a couple hours away, but talk about seeing how the other side live! The mail boat tour was a great way to really get some history of the lake and some of the best views of the beautiful estates and the wooden boats that go with them. Some very good places to eat, shop,... More

The view of the lake was stunning. Unfortunately for us a storm quickly rolled in so we didn't get to enjoy any activities which included pretty much Ny water activity/sport you can think of.

Lake Geneva is the best body of water within a 3 hour drive from Chicago. The water is clean and clear, though never gets very warm. Great for boating, swimming and a day trip with the family. Lots of shopping as well as wonderful choices to dine or just to enjoy an ice cream cone. A public walking path winds... More

This might be the cleanest lake I have ever seen. Even at the water's edge in near the downtown, one can clearly see the bottom of the lake.
