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."

“Great place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

The weather was gorgeous and shops were very unique. We were only there for about 4 hours and everything was busy but not overwhelming. The only bad side was the traffic trying to get back out of town.

“Nice lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Very pretty lake, looks like a lot of opportunities for boating and watersports. We took the Mailboat Cruise on the boats that leave from the Riviera dock--it was really interesting even in the rain.

“Visit to Lake Geneva”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Extremely helpful lake assistance officials, and a nice town. Recommend tasting the Pina Colada smoothi at the Riveira building.
But the $ 7 entry charge seems a bit high, compared to what we saw - the lake is not clean as there is algae and other debri floating around. The sand is not always safe to walk barefoot as i had a fishbone cling under my foot - was just painful!

“Great escape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This is a perfect place to spend a day if you want a weekend escape from Chicago or nearby cities. We liked the weather; I have to say that the lake provides the perfect temperature. Everything is so calm and serene and the walk is just beautiful. Yes, the pictures you see are original and each one indeed is breathtaking.
Bring your camera and enjoy!

“Family Outing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Boating on a weekday during the Summer is great! No crowds; you can move around easily, or just park and drift.
