After attending a school's fundraising auction, my partner and I ended up winning a gift certificate for a complimentary night and breakfast at the Geneva Inn. The weekend of Christmas Eve we eventually took advantage of the deal and spent the night. The inn is just off Lake Shore Drive in between Lake Geneva and Fontana, right around where Big Foot Beach State Park is located. To downtown Lake Geneva, it is about a 5 minute drive. When you step in the to the inn, you are greeted by a fireplace that you are tempted to walk up to to warm your hands up, however, pass it by and go straight to the dining room (Grandview Restaurant) windows. They have one of the best Geneva Lake views in town. When booking the room, I would recommend upgrading to a lakeview room, otherwise the landview is just of the inn's parking lot. Our room was extremely spacious with two queen beds, a corner whirlpool tub, a separate glass shower, a closet, and a dining table. The decor is a bit dated with a country inn or cottage theme, yet for the location, it's quite fitting and pleasant. Most importantly it was clean. While we didn't spend too much time in the hotel room, but we did sleep well with little to no noise issues (even with Lake Shore Drive across the way). Staff was very friendly and accommodating, so no complaints there either. I would like to return during the summer time to take advantage of their lakeside patios and enjoy a glass of wine.
