“Excellent Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

We loved our little getaway here! The rooms are cozy, the staff is very friendly and accommodating and we were very relaxed in the tub. The only problem we found was the beds and pillows were not the most comfortable. We woke with stiff backs and necks. All in all though, we will probably return, we will just make sure to bring our own pillows.

We may say this often, but we mean it each time we do….we are always honored when someone takes time from their busy schedule to write a review on their stay with us. Thank you so much for writing a review!

We are delighted you loved your getaway but we are a bit distressed that you woke with a stiff back and neck. We will investigate and see if it time to swap out pillows and/or mattresses. We want guests to make us aware of problems so that we can address them and make any necessary changes we need to. We also want our guests to leave with great memories, and not a pain in the neck.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention; the only thing now is to determine what suite you stayed in and make some changes. If you could email us, or respond to this review, with the suite you stayed in, we will get to work on this problem right away.

We look forward to you visiting with us again, and want to assure you that you won’t have to bring pillows from home!

This Inn is small and nice but right now the road construction detracts from its amenities. Otherwise it could be nice. The breakfast was nothing to talk about. You have to make your own coffee which is provided.

When it comes to the construction going on, we couldn’t agree with you more. We are chomping the bit to have all this construction over and done with and be able to go back to our peaceful little hideaway.

Unfortunately, unlike the B&B, the Inn does not have any cooking facilities on site, which severely restricts and limits what we can offer for breakfast. As a result our offerings are limited to juice, pastries and muffins (however the muffins placed in the microwave for a few seconds, taste pretty good! Don’t ask me how I know this! ). We do provide a coffeemaker so that guests can have coffee to go along with this breakfast.

We do mention the breakfast offerings on the website so that folks can be prepared and know what to expect.

Thank you so much for staying with us, and then taking time to write a review. We are appreciative of both! We do so hope you will come and visit us once the madness of the road construction is all over and done with.

We decided to take a quick weekend getaway from Chicago, and took the short and easy 1 1/2 ride up to Lake Geneva where we stayed at the Lazy Cloud Inn (The Lazy Cloud Inn is down the street from the Lazy Cloud Bed & Breakfast). The Lazy Cloud Inn is located in a secluded area of Lake Geneva and is about a 10 minute drive to downtown and the lake. When we arrived we were checked in the by kind innkeeper and handed our complimentary iced-cold bottle of Spumante, and our complimentary local made apple pie (which was amazing). The innkeeper then showed us to our room (the Starry Night suite) and gave us a full tour of everything before leaving us. In addition to the quiet, dimly lit, cozy space in the suite (which included a huge hot tub with candles, a gas fireplace, a stereo with different relaxing CD's to listen to, a large and very comfortable bed, and a TV with cable and DVD player), the room also featured a HUGE porch at the back of the suite with beautiful wooded views (I noted that all units in the Inn have their own huge porch, as well). We used this porch for relaxing with our coffee and breakfast (which is delivered to the room, and consisted of fresh muffins and other pastries!) every morning. Overall, we had a great experience here, and the customer service exceeded our expectations! This was a fantastic, relaxing, romantic weekend getaway, and we can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: Starry Night Room was awesome!

There is something quite refreshing and therapeutic about a quick weekend getaway isn’t there?

We are thrilled that when you decided to take your getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city, you chose to spend it with us.

We know that everyone is so busy these days; when guests come and stay at Lazy Cloud, the best compliment we can receive is when guests share that they had a relaxing and romantic time. If we hear that, we know that we have done our job, and done it well. It sounds like we did our job on your weekend getaway.

We hope that when you decide to take another quick getaway, you will remember your stay at Lazy Cloud Inn and visit with us again, either in the Starry Night Suite or one of our many others.

What an incredible place to stay! We stayed in the Starry Nights suite, and it was incredibly beautiful. The giant jacuzzi was right next to a beautiful fireplace...it was just perfect. We had our own private back patio, where we sat under the stars sipping on the champagne that came complimentary with our room. There were also muffins, chocolates, and an apple pie waiting for us when we checked in.

And if all that wasn't enough, the staff there was just incredibly friendly! They were so accommodating and had endless recommendations for places to eat, and things to do and see. We can't wait to go back!

First of all, thank you so much for choosing to stay with us and then taking time to write a review. We are honored that you did both. There is nothing quite like the glow of the fireplace as you sit inside the Jacuzzi, is there? All of the cares of the world just slip away!

Having a private balcony to enjoy a glass of wine and chocolate covered strawberries while sitting under a blanket of stars, is about as perfect an evening as you can get. We are delighted that you were able to experience this…..

Secondly, we love our staff! Each Innkeeper strives to go above and beyond when it comes to being welcoming and hospitable. One of our goals is to make each guest feel valued, appreciated and welcome. It sounds like we succeeded on your visit.

Thank you again for visiting us. We can’t wait for you to come back again…each season has its own beauty, so anytime is the “right” time to visit.

We would love to have you stay again in the winter!! Winter in the woods is beautiful, especially if it snows. If you come on a Monday-Thursday from December 2 to December 23, you will have a full-size Christmas tree in your suite, decorated according to that suite’s theme. Even better, this is our December Special period, during which the suite rates are the lowest of the year!! The trees are usually kept up at least through the first week in January, and add even more romance to your cozy getaway. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and very much appreciate your kind comments!! Thank you so much.

So friendly & personable!!! From the first contact with Sandi who booked our reservation who has literally become a friend over the phone, to Kim that checked us into the room. Kim took the time to look up & give us directions to Alpine Valley where we saw Jimmy Buffet perform only about 20 minutes from Lazy Cloud.

After the concert back to the room to relax & unwind... The room was beautifully appointed, large Jacuzzi, fireplace, chocolates, & wine. The room refrigerator had a "honor bar" that had a cheese spread & crackers that "hit the spot" for a late night snack out on the large deck. Sitting on the private deck in the moonlight next to the woods we felt like we were "way up north" at cabin in the woods. We left the two sliding glass doors open so the sounds of the woods lulled us to sleep & the filtered sunlight woke us up in the morning. And did we sleep! Best sleep in months! The next morning we enjoyed our "Continental Breakfast" with fresh coffee we made in the room.

There was nothing we would have wanted to add, or nothing that wasn't thought of like shampoo, conditioner, bubble bath, shaving cream, sun tan lotion should you forget to bring something with you... It was all there and in this tasteful, beautifully furnished retreat. And a treat it was...!!!

And the grounds complete with a large pond full of water lilly's in full bloom stocked with 100's of large gold fish where beautifully & tastefully maintained.

We would "Highly Recommend" the Lazy Cloud Inn!!!

Room Tip: Check in early to spend as much time there to enjoy the experience!

One of the best perks of being in this business is the opportunity it affords us to meet such a wide variety of the very nicest people! And when they have only wonderful comments, it makes it even more fun, although we are always open to constructive criticism. Our staff members truly enjoy helping our guests make the most of their stay at Lazy Cloud. Thank you for your kind words, and we hope to see you again and often!! We assume you will be back next August, when, hopefully, Jimmy Buffet will return to Alpine Valley!!

No regrets and wonderful memories after spending our anniversary in the Dream Catcher Suite. The suite is rustic and romantic and yes the whirlpool is big enough for two. We lit the candles they provided and lit the fireplace. Had the picnic lunch when we arrived, it was all they said it would be and we couldn't finish it all, the best fresh hot bread, cheeses and wonderful cheesecake. We also enjoyed the wine on arrival and apple pie. Don't miss out on sitting on the back porch. We covered the wooden swing and just sat out there and enjoyed. Great staff, welcoming you and showing you everything in the room when you arrive. Provided tips for what is going on in the area and getting around the area. Everyone made us feel welcome. My only two suggestions: updates in bathroom shower area and new towels.

Room Tip: Remember some rooms do not have a TV and no phone in our suite.(Not that we needed a phone) If you l...
