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."

“Lake Geneva, interesting but crowded”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Nice in fall, a bit crowded in summer. Interesting to see where old Chicago money played/plays. Nice place to hike around the lake on the public access path in the fall with nice leaf colors against the background of the mansions and lake.

“Favorite fishing lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

We love this lake for fishing and boating. I enjoy viewing all the homes and the great landscaping. My husband loves the fishing, boating, and he fishes all year long.

“Beautiful Geneva Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

We went on a boat tour on the 1st of December, the last tour of the year. It is a very beautiful lake and the house (mansions) are wonder to see. The boat captain gives a great talk and history of all the places around the lake. We would love to see it during the summer.

“Beautiful lake and fun times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

Geneva Lake is a place you remember from childhood and it's still the same when you return years later. Whether swimming at the beach, taking your own boat out or a tour boat, you can spend the day, weekend or week at Geneva Lake and never get bored. The mail boat is a great tour going around the entire lake.
Even in the winter they have the ice sculpting contests as well as ice fishing shanties dotting the lake. It's simply a relaxing, beautiful area to visit.

Great food, stores and people. The decorations in December were wonderful both in and out of the stores and resorts.
