The room was comfortable with a large bathroom. The breakfast was wonderful with lots of fresh fruit, coffee, juice and tasty French toast. Great location for walking to shopping and dining in Lake Geneva. We were able to walk around town and walk around the lake. We enjoyed our visit.

Wonderful location that is close to downtown and restaurants. Maureen is a warm and welcoming host! She is very knowledgeable of the area and provides a delicious breakfast each morning. All around it was a great place to stay!

It's close to a few great restaurants (less then 5 min walk) and close enough to the water to enjoy a breeze yet far enough away to avoid the crowds! The B&B is dog friendly which was a huge bonus...

The room was small but cute & breakfast was great. We live in Chicago, so head to Lake Geneva at least a few times annually and are big fans of... More

There has been so many couples celebrating their anniversaries this year that I could have named the Inn the Anniversary Inn. Actually it is my 30th year anniversary for operating and loving being an innkeeper this May 2015. Thank You for your great review. Maureen More

My boyfriend and I went up to Lake Geneva for a triathlon and were bringing our dog. There were only about three places that allowed dogs and this was one of them. Maureen was the innkeeper and she was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. She is very kind and hospital. The food for breakfast that she cooked was delicious.... More
