We've been here a few times now. First time, tour of this gorgeous home. Second time, beer tasting cruise. Third time, Victorian Death and Mourning program presented by a local Walworth Township funeral director during the month of October. Cool! Loved each visit. It's obvious, the workers and volunteers love the home and are excited to share anything they know... More

If you like history, take the time to visit this beautiful mansion which has not been altered in over 100 years from its original beauty. Wonderful historical information about the owners' families and many interesting details about the home provided by Jim, our tour guide. Amazing condition for its age. Well worth the time to step back in time and... More

So interesting learning all about the history of Lake Geneva and seeing a period home from the era. Ended wanting to know more.

This is well worth the price....you travel by boat to the house and get to see all the mansions that line the shore.....boat captain gave a history of the homes and was very informative. The tour of Black Point was great...pretty amazing that everything is as it was way back when. Highly recommend.

Wonderful boat tour with lots of information on the way to the estate. Many stairs to climb, but a few places to rest if necessary. Tour guides at the house were very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. We were surprised when the two hours on site were up. We could have listened and learned all day. Awesome time! Highly... More

If you are in the Lake Geneva area this is one excursion that you really should do. The boat trip out is very enjoyable and informative and the approximate two hour tour of the estate is excellent.

On a recent girls weekend, we took the boat tour of Geneva Lake with a stop at the Black Point Estate. Such a fun way to see a historic home. Highly recommended!

This mansion is a Victorian turn-of-the-century time capsule. Very knowledgeable docents that love their subject matter.

Cruise to Black Point included narrative from the captain about many of the homes along the shores of Lake Geneva- very interesting. Upon arrival we had to climb 120 steps to reach the Estate. Could be difficult for some. The guide at the Estate did an excellent job. He shared many historical facts and stories. We really enjoyed the tour... More
