After staying at the Baker House almost 2 years ago, we were hooked on their amazingly attentive service and luxurious accommodations. Not a detail was missed and we felt like royalty. Bethany, the owner, has the most amazing taste in the decor, and her staff dotes on guests like family. This beautiful venue immediately came to mind when we considered places to hold our wedding. Katrina, the general manager, was so excited that we picked their hotel and helped us with every detail: flowers, music, a local minister, a personally planned and prepared dinner, and a whole list of ideas for us after the ceremony: a horse drawn carriage ride, a wine tasting with picnic basket provided, a private dinner overlooking the lake for me and my bride, a lake cruise, and a chauffeured ride in a vintage auto were just some of the choices they brought us to consider, rain or shine. We had a small ceremony upstairs in the lounge overlooking Lake Geneva and Katrina made sure every detail was perfect. It rained all day (good luck we're told) so they chaufeured us to the winery for a nice tasting and picnic then returned us to our room to freshen up for dinner. Chef Ellie planned and delivered an amazing meal just for us, complete with a personalized menu that we brought home to keep. She even baked us our own small wedding cake to enjoy and save for our first anniversary, which we definitely plan to celebrate with our friends at the Baker House. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day so special!
