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

My boyfriend and I were at Maxwell Mansion for a weekend getaway 6/27. Beth took care of us, love her. The place is amazing. We stayed in the stables. Walked in our room and was surprised with rose petals everywhere and delicious chocolate covered strawberries. Steam shower is phenomenal with ample room. The decor in the room was very elegant....

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. We attended the murder mystery dinner and the cabaret both of which were excellent. We were treated well during our stay and the mansion was very clean! The pool was very nice even though it was too cold of us to use it. The staff was very friendly and willing to... More

Just returned from staying in the Carriage House at Maxwell Mansion. Wow! The rooms are designed so that you feel so pampered and can't help but smile as you walk around the room noticing all the special touches. Great beds and assortment of pillow types, steam shower that makes u feel like u are in a room you would see... More

Omg, this place was simply amazing. I attended a wedding here in June and stayed in the Ulysses Grant room. We loved it! It's elegant, comfy, and a beautiful historical place to see. The owner was also very accommodating. She ran around making sure everything was perfect for the wedding. Everyone in group loved it! Can't wait to go back.

My husband and I came up from Chicago to stay at the Maxwell Mansion this weekend and it was an absolute joy. We have found our permanent destination for weekend getaways! The property is situated just about a block back from the lake, which lends to the intimate and peaceful nature of the hotel. It is only a 5-minute walk... More

It was our 25th anniversary and we went here for the weekend. We loved the property. Check in is 4pm or after. You have the run of the property. Unlike what I have read (must be from the old owners) Check in was easy. There is a code combo to get in later at night once the home is locked.... More

My Fiance and I came here for a wedding, It was our first time ever coming to the mansion and we had no idea what to expect. We were shocked! All of the staff were very helpful, welcoming, and made you feel very comfortable. All of the rooms were different, and had there own look which was really neat. Also... More

I recommend Maxwell Mansion as a unique getaway. It provided a sanctuary for relaxation. The atmosphere was like taking a stroll through the past, similar to Mackinac Island or New Orleans. The staff were very accomodating, especially for my 86 year old father. We stayed at the rustic but lovely Carriage House, where they allowed pets, so I could take... More

Sometimes you have an experience while traveling that simply must be shared. While staying at the Maxwell Mansion - whether inside the historical Mansion itself or tucked into one of the quaint Carriage House or Stable rooms - you will feel transported into an arena of style and comfort. Elegant home away from home feel - manicured grounds and attentive... More
