We stayed here with a group of 5 people. The mansion is the oldest in Lake Geneva and you can feel the history as soon as you walk through the doors! We had a suite that included 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The one bedroom had a queen size bed and a twin, the other room had a King size bed. This was a perfect layout for a family traveling together. The place was very clean, furniture was beautiful and the location was perfect to walk to the lake, restaurants and shopping. This property was recently purchased by the same owners as the Baker House (wonderful place to eat), they are making some changes and I believe this place will be fabulous when they are finished. What kept it from being a 5 star were some little things that were missing, There was no water or coffee available. Also, we had to wait to check in as no one was there. However, we are looking forward to seeing what improvements are made to this property by hopefully returning next year!
