The restaurant was spectacular. Food was top notch the chocolate martini the best I have ever had in all of WI. My room was very old fashioned. I loved it much I will be hosting my 10 year vow renewal ceremony there

Our children got us a gift certificate to this establishment so that was the reason we stayed here. We have since gotten another one from them only to find out that they are closed! Now we are out the money because they have not been opened all summer and no one answers the phone. It is suppose to be closed... More

Made a reservation for March 6, 2014 in Feb. They took CC info and sent confirmation. Three days later "Debbie" from the front desk called to say they were a historic building and it's been a cold winter, so they were canceling our reservation for renovations. I asked for the name of the owner, but Debbie declined. An innkeeper that... More

We are sincerely sorry that we had to cancel your stay with us. We never charged your credit, I can assure you. It was unfortunate that we had recently found out about us closing for renovations. It came as a shock to the staff as well as myself. Please understand that this temporary closing will affect all of the staff... More

After reading several other reviews we decided to give the French Country Inn a try for a New Years Eve getaway with friends. It is located on Lake Como and each room has a very scenic view of the lake. The rooms are a little small, but comfortable; they even have a mini-fridge and a coffee pot. The days we... More

My husband and I traveled to Lake Geneva to celebrate his birthday. We chose The French Country Inn because it sounded secluded and elegant, and it was. The historic inn has sections dating from the late 1800's, including beautiful woodwork from the Danish Pavilion at the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago. We stayed in the oldest section; our room had... More

We booked a room here last minute to get out of Chicago for the night and relaxed When we arrived we came out of the cold weather into the beautiful lobby, which had a large fire roaring, fresh coffee, and very polite people working at the desk. Our room was simple, but clean and cozy. We had a gas fireplace... More

Flash back into the 1980's because this would be the last time it was remodeled or painted. The inn was clean however very worn down with stains on the 1980's rose pink colored carpet. The mirror and lighting above the tiny pedestal sink is something that you could buy in you local resale shops now and days for $5.00. We... More

We stayed for our second time at the French Country Inn, this time for our 1st wedding anniversary. It is a very charming, small inn with a B&B feel directly on the shore of beautiful Lake Como just minutes outside of the hustle and bustle of Lake Geneva. The rooms are comfortably furnished (we stayed in a petite king room)... More

We stayed at the Petite Auberge. What an awesome room. We were so close to the water it felt like we were on a houseboat. The fireplace was great and the room was really clean. The staff at the French Country Inn are always awesome. I always seem to run into Tony the owner, he's a great guy and he... More
