We came here for our "mini-moon" after we got married last year and had THE best time. The grounds are beautiful, and the staff was beyond excellent. They even let us stay in two different rooms while we were here because they weren't busy (we stayed Sunday and Monday). We got to experience the carriage house, and the newly renovated... More

We were looking for a getaway spot that did not have a hotel or resort feel, off the beaten path and private, yet close to everything as we enjoy walking Lake Geneva and photographing all of its wonders. We found it at the Maxwell Mansion. We were greeted warmly by Beth. She made us feel welcomed and at home immediately... More

Had such a wonderful time staying at the Maxwell Mansion. We stayed in one of the lofted rooms of the carriage house. The room was unlike any other hotel room we have stayed in. Just absolutely beautiful! Beth greeted us upon arrival. I could not have better things to say about her. She sure made us feel at home. She... More

Outstanding. We love Beth, she is by far the best hostess one can have, fun and friendly. The room was fabulous. The shower, tub and bed were amazing better then any five star hotel in the city (Chicago). We go all out twice a year for a weekend without the kids, usually downtown Chicago. No longer will we be heading... More

Me and my wife had an absolutely marvelous stay at this Mansion. We were greeted by a woman named Beth that was absolutely helpful from start to finish and really made us feel home at this mansion. The room was clean and gorgeous and although it was a historic mansion, everything in the mansion from the Coffee Machine to the... More

My gf and I came here a for couple nights during our weekend getaway from Chicago. The maxwell mansion was the highlight of our trip in Lake Geneva especially during the snow/ice storm. It is conveniently located only 2 minute walk from the Lake. Beth from the front desk was very friendly and even called us to check with us... More

I made a reservation 2&1/2 months before my overnight stay and received a confirmation. After I called on the day of checkin, the hotel left a message on my home voicemail, asking me to confirm if I wanted a "pet friendly" room. Of course, I was already enroute to Lake Geneva. At checkin, they never said anything about a "pet... More

We have been fortunate enough to have stayed in almost all of the "nicer" locations in Lake Geneva and feel that Maxwell Mansion surpasses most of them. The room are beautifully furnished and the shower is not to be missed. The location offers close proximity to downtown with the ability to still get away from it all. The staff was... More

Cannot honestly say enough good things about The Maxwell Mansion. We hosted our wedding ceremony and reception here this past week and then spent the night as well. From the moment we began working with Jennifer we were treated like royalty. The entire staff was professional, courteous and made the event and our stay better than we ever dreamed it... More

My wife and I visited Lake Geneva during October break and we booked a room at Maxwell Mansion given its high rating on Tripadvisor. It did not let us down! We even received a free upgrade to a premium room. It was a Monday so I guess there weren't many guests and maybe we were the only two who checked... More
