We were in town for a friend's wedding and decided we wanted to stay at a bed and breakfast. I am so happy that we picked this place because the whole experience was great. The home is historic and has a neat story behind it (ask Sue for details :) ). We stayed in the Gardenview room, and it was... More

Sue & Bob are very nice and accommodating. The inn and rooms are clean and there is a lot of history in this old residence. A little tricky to find but worth looking for. Sue made the best B&B breakfast we ever had!

My husband and I stayed at General Boyd's for a couple nights and loved our stay. Our room, the Rose room was very clean and comfortable. The Rose room is the smallest room, but still has a nice private bath (bath just outside the room, not inside like the rest of their rooms). This bath was recently redone, and I... More

We had an outstanding time at General Boyd's! Neither my (now) husband or I had been to Lake Geneva or a B&B before and this has set the bar high! Bob & Sue were so accommodating and happy all the time! We stayed in the Sunshine Room which was beautiful anytime of the day. The grounds are darling and lovely... More

Bob and Sue are wonderful hosts and you will feel comfortable in their home from the moment you arrive. The location is incredibly convenient to walk to Lake Geneva and Big Foot state park. They were incredibly accommodating of my food allergies and made the most amazing breakfast for my husband and me. Also, if you're interested in knowing anything... More
