Bethany and her staff of Maxwell Mansion provides ultra extravagance in everything from crown to ground. The check in area, staff, fresh flowers, beauty of the mansion, the bar, the server staff, the tasteful and artistic decor. A gorgeous pool area, fire pit, rocking chairs, bocce ball, and LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. A short walk to the Baker House (ANOTHER TREASURE)... More

We had a wonderful time at the beautiful Maxwell Mansion because it was a special event--a family wedding, the first of the "next generation." This place has great potential and I can see why they chose the venue. And while it was probably one of the most special days of our family's life, to the staff we were just another... More

Stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in the coach house in an amazing room with a king bed. Our room was decorated perfectly - our bathroom sink was an old barrel, the jacuzzi tub surrounded by patterned tin. The mansion itself is stunning - everywhere you look is a feast for the eyes -...

We stayed at the Maxwell Mansion for the weekend in the carriage house. Upon arrival, Beth showed us around the mansion and gave us a bit of history. All the rooms are decorated nicely and the staff are dressed like they stepped back in time. When we arrived to our room it was clean, decorated nicely and very stylish! I... More

I have stayed at Maxwell Mansion twice and thoroughly enjoyed the various beautiful rooms. The access to Lake Geneva and different shops & restaurants made my visits fun filled and easily accessible. I would refer others because of the various evening activities on site, the great pool decor & the comfy fire pit sitting area.

Visited for our 35th anniversary, Beth the hostess was so nice. She showed us around and told us the history of the mansion. These are in a great location, within walking distance to shops in downtown. Beautiful rooms and VERY comfortable beds. The steam shower is incredible.

We made last minute reservations, so selection of rooms was limited. We stayed in the "stable" which turns out to be the best place to stay if you want a quiet stay. The beds are the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in! As the website states, this is not a "hotel" nor is it a "bed and breakfast". There... More

We stayed in the Carriage House and the room was gorgeous! The pool is perfect for relaxing and the Apothecary Bar is super cute. This place is perfectly located for easy walking to everything. Best of all, the staff is so accommodating. We had to reschedule our stay and not only did they do it free of charge, they booked... More

We loved it! Beautifully and elegantly done. It was perfect for a wedding venue. The staff was amazing and great to work with. Our visit was late June and the grounds were manicured and in colorful and plentiful bloom! In addition, the history of Maxwell Mansion is quite interesting. I think it is a "must see"!

I found this property after doing a little check on Trip Advisor on properties in Lake Geneva as it has been about 5 years since our last visit. When I saw that this property is now owned by the folks at The Baker House, I knew no stone would be unturned. Upon our arrival, Beth greeted us and gave us... More
