This was a beautiful home by the lake. Each room has unique quality to it and is very interesting. If you love hats this is the place to go. They have at least 50 different hats that you can try on and wear. They clean them every night. The food is good but not gourmet so if you are looking... More

We often passed Baker House, and wondered what it looked like inside. We decided to try it for dinner last Saturdsy. When my husband called for reservations, he requested a lake view. We were seated on the veranda with a perfect view of the sun glistening on the water. We were seated next to each other on a comfy couch... More

I was not sure what to expect not having been to the Baker House. So, we thought we'd try it for Mother's Day as an alternative to a big hotel style brunch. The staff were very accommodating and gave us a table in front of the windows even when I made a reservation the day before the Mother's Day brunch.... More

We ate here for Sunday brunch on our Honeymoon, and it was fantastic! They had a huge variety of foods, and they were clearly all made from scratch. I wanted so badly to eat here again before we left, but the brunch was only on Sunday! The restaurant/hotel has great charm and the waitstaff is very friendly. I can't wait... More

Living in the area for 30 years, I selected what I considered to be the most stellar restaurant in the area to have a shower for my future daughter in law and 24 friends and relatives. I have never been more proud of this decision. The private room I reserved was absolutely breathtaking with it's existing ornate decor. The staff... More

Unique setting fashioned in a renovated mansion. The kids loved trying on the hats and we all wore one at dinner which really added to the fun. The chocolate fondue was a nice treat. Pulled pork sliders were a little spicy and beef tips were a little tough but we'd come back for the experience.

My husband and I had dinner while visiting Lake Geneva. The place is amazing. After being shown to our table we walked around the restaurant to try on the hats. The decor and items around the place were very interesting. We had so much fun just walking around and looking at everything. Our table was right in front of the... More

The food was wonderful - my friends enjoyed filets, bacon Mac and cheese, and beef tips. As a vegetarian, I never know if I will be stuck with an iceberg salad for dinner, and was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful veggie polenta. The atmosphere is wonderful, and we had a great time finding hats to wear during dinner.

We went to the Baker House Sunday brunch. The food was great with a variety of choices and well prepared and presented but the real reason you go is the house itself. Set in a 19th century mansion each room is packed with fascinating historical detail. The staff dresses in period costumes and is knowledgeable about the history of the... More
