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

Beautiful home and grounds. They give history of the home and family. House is filled with antiques from that era. Plus the tour comes with a boat ride. Definitely a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

I love old homes and the history behind them. This was no exception. The guide was awesome and learned much. My mom and I had been on a bus trip this summer, so we didn't get to climb the 122 stairs (I think that's how many). We did do a mailboat tour, so saw the top of this mansion from... More

As a member of the WI Historical Society, we wanted to take advantage of this "new" tour site - it did not disappoint. The mansion is at the top of the Black Point bluff, and normally the only way there is by boat!! Due to a recent medical issue, we were able to drive to the location, and park in... More

Well narrated guided tours through the mansion and garden gives insight to the life style of the family of a successful beer industrialist. Only accessible with boat tour from the town Lake Geneva. Boat tour is well worth allowing to see lots of beautiful lake houses and gardens.
