My boyfriend surprised me here for Valentines Days! We stayed at the Mansion and had dinner at Maxwell House. It was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is greta, it is located right by the lake as well as downtown. Would definitely stay here again!

The Maxwell Mansion was the reception venue for our wedding on October 11, 2014. WOW! What a beautiful historic property! From the minute we visited the Mansion with Anna T, we knew we found our spot. From the craftsmanship inside the mansion, to the gorgeous grounds and unique character…there was an abundance of appeal throughout the entire property. The property... More

My husband and I went to Lake Geneva on a Sunday for the first time ever. We were celebrating his fall break in medical school and we were in much need of some quality time together. After eating at The Bake House for their SPECTACULAR Sunday Brunch, we ended up staying the night at the Maxwell Mansion (directly behind The... More

Overall, the staff, what little were there, were very delightful and helpful. However, we were dissappointed that the Apothacary bar was closed and you really are quite on your own in the mansion after a certain time, meaning, don't forget your front door key, otherwise it would be a hassle getting back into the mansion. The sister property was fun,... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at Maxwell Mansion. We were greeted with genuine enthusiasm by Allissa, who showed us around the ground floor and to our room. She really made us feel at home throughout. We stayed in the Jane Austin room, which was comfortable and had a nice view of the front lawn. The king... More

My sister and I recently stayed here as special guests during a friends birthday. The house is newly renovated and just beautiful! After the party at the Baker House down the street we walked to the Mansion to party at the speak easy in the basement. We had a great time! Service was wonderful.

Were looking for a place in Lake Geneva that was not your run of the mill hotel, and found the Maxwell Mansion, very charming, with cosy rooms, a great pool area, and lots of rooms to just sit and chill. Very helpful staff, and good value.

My hubby and I held our wedding ceremony at The Baker House and used the Maxwell Mansion as our reception area. The historic mansion is absolutely magical and the new owner, Bethany completely renovated the Maxwell Mansion rooms so we were some of the first guests along with my family for our wedding weekend. She has impeccable taste that is... More

I found this inn online and booked it by phone. The accommodations and hospitality of the innkeepers were first-rate. It was a bit pricey, but as I said, everything was excellent, making for good value. Nice room, nice lounge areas and friendly people. And breakfast was terrific. I highly recommend.

It is not even really open now, they will take your $, but will not return phone calls or e-mails and badly messed up the reservation for anniversary weekend in Lk... More
