Owner description: Get this straight: The city is Lake Geneva, the lake is Geneva Lake. Hop aboard a classic yacht for a cruise around the second deepest lake in Wisconsin (135 feet deep and 21 miles around) which is the focal point of a popular resort area also known as "the Newport of the West."

“Nice, but at times too crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Always a great spot to get away to for a day or two. Beutiful lake that can sometimes get very crowded with boats, skiers and jet skis. Cool to take one of the boat trips to see the mansions and get some history of the lake.

“2 hour tour...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We took a 2 hour boat tour around the whole lake. The narrator on the boat was great! Young, cute, funny... such a fun experience! We regretted that we didn't do the Black Point tour instead... you get the lake tour and a tour of a period mansion. Bummer, but leaves us something new to do next time!

“Great place to spend a day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Beautiful little burg with great restaurants and interesting shops. Beautiful lake, which you can take a boat tour around. Scads of impressive mansions built, mostly, with old Chicago money 80 to 100 years ago.
