Vacation Cottage | Lake Geneva
Get ready for a fun getaway to Lake Geneva at this one-of-a-kind vacation cottage. While we just opened for business, we are experienced innkeepers and also run the Lake Geneva Beach & Golf House. (5 star rating, 80 reviews.) Expect nothing but the best experience at this AMAZING home! There’s brand new plush mattresses and new high quality bedding throughout and you’re sure to have a great night sleep while enjoying all the fun this home has to offer. It’s immaculate!
There’s over 2,400 square foot of space in this property and all on a triple fenced in lot. This house is unique in that it offers many different rooms to gather (more than many houses I have seen) and when you’re on vacation with family and friends, this extra space will make all the difference.
In addition to the four bedrooms and three baths in this property, you can sit in the living room (which has my two most favorite and heavenly soft chairs that look out through the huge picture windows on the front of the house, which is facing the lake.) This room also has a brand new adorable green couch that has a queen size sleeper sofa, with a plush memory foam mattress, of course! There’s seating for 5 in this room.
The next place to gather is in the Family Room with the two-story stone fireplace and vaulted wood beam ceilings. We have added new leather couches to bring a more modern flair to the room. It’s extremely comfortable, with loads of natural light pouring in from both the front and back of the house, yet it’s warm and peaceful bring tucked away in the middle of the house. There’s seating for seven, making it a great place to sit with friends and family and catch up on old times.
When you’re ready for fun, head into the dining room, which I call the Entertainment Room. This room is fun and wacky yet perfectly functional! It has a turquoise bar straight out of the 1960’s that is in amazing condition. It has a 1970’s sectional that’s incredibly comfortable and has two recliners built in. There’s a large round table with a Lazy Susan and eight bright yellow chairs, also from the 60’s, where everyone will gather for meals. There’s also a piano and a train that runs along the ceiling!
We’ve added modern elements to this room with new artwork and a large flat screen television at the bar. There’s actually seating for 17 in this room so this will be the room where everyone will want to be! There’s huge picture windows on three sides of this room, overlooking the back, side yard, and a wall of windows overlooking the 3 season glass pool table room! It’s a blast from the past but functionally breath-taking at the same time.
The next room is truly one-of-a-kind! It’s the three season ROUND glass room. Everyone who walks by the house asks what’s in the round room? Well, it’s a HUGE room for playing pool and gathering with friends! There’s a great pool table, new couches and a pub table with chairs. There’s even a flat screen television mounted on the wall so you can enjoy “the game” while everyone plays some pool. This room is amazing, has seating for 10 and provides yet more space to be with friends and family… that’s what vacations area all about, right?
I forgot to mention the kitchen! This is truly the crown jewel of the house. Everyone that walks into the house stops and experiences some kind of a moment, remembering someplace in life where they’ve seen a kitchen like this! The cabinets are in amazingly great shape for being from the 1960’s and keeping with the charm, we had to keep them!
The yellow cabinets are stocked with all new dishes, colorful serving bowls, even bright and colorful rainbow pots and pans and knives! Everything is new and so much thought was put into buying each and everything to ensure a fun experience for you. We’ve also added a dishwasher to make life easier while you’re on vacation. There’s a pass-through window in this kitchen into the pool room, with a little pop up table for serving on the other side. It’s a small kitchen but packed with modern and colorful conveniences and sure to love this room.
The next shocker is the immaculate and brand new guest house that is just a couple steps behind the main house and is included in this rental. The two homes go together and won’t be rented separately. (Don’t worry, there won’t be strangers staying at the house while you’re there… you get two houses for the price of one!). There’s a patio between the two houses with plenty of outdoor seating and a BBQ grill.
This guest house was rebuilt from the ground up and offers some getaway space for a lucky few! This house has a beautiful little living room with a brand new couch that also serves as a queen size sleeper sofa, with a plush memory foam mattress, of course! It also has a new kitchen that is also fully stocked and a breakfast bar for two that is open into the living room, that seats 4. There’s a new full size, front loading washer and dryer and up the gorgeous new maple staircase, is a giant master bedroom with a super plush king size bed.
You’ll forget where you are when you’re in this new and modern space, yet you’ll be just a couple steps from all the fun at the main house! This is a perfect space for the grandparents to stay, to give them privacy, or maybe a family with young children to give them peace and quiet, and away from the fun in the main house at night. Or maybe someone in your group snores and you want them out of the main house! 🙂 The total occupancy between the two houses is twelve (12.)
The yard is a triple lot that backs up to a conservancy with the Hermanson Wood, which is a wonderful little hiking trail. There’s plenty of room for yard games on the large plush lawn and there’s a fun hand painted element on the fence, which just adds more to the charm of this amazing property.
All together, the main house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, a living room, family room, dining/entertaining room and a round glass sunroom with a pool table. And the guest house, just a few steps behind this home has a living room, kitchen and a huge bedroom. Both homes are included in this rental.
There’s one bedroom on the first floor of the main house with a queen size bed and there are two bedrooms on the second floor. One has a full size bed and the other with two twin beds. There is also a queen size sleeper sofa with a memory foam mattress in the living room. All of the mattresses are brand new and incredibly comfortable.
The house is located across the street from the French Country Inn hotel on Lake Como and its fun lounge, Deighton’s. Stop in for a cocktail and soak in the history, as it was a gathering place for many of the infamous Chicago mobsters, Baby Face Nelson, Bugsy Malone and even Al Capone. This home has lake views of Lake Como, which is a quiet lake with the best sunsets in town.
It’s also located about a half of a block away from the famous Mars Resort Piano Bar & Restaurant. They serve great food in a fun and comfortable setting and have outdoor entertainment occasionally on summer afternoons by the lake. You’ll enjoy being able to walk to the restaurant and both lounges, without ever having to start your car! In the evenings, both are peaceful and quiet.
There’s a neighborhood beach across the street to give you access to the lakefront. Downtown Lake Geneva, and all the shopping, entertainment, theaters and restaurants it has to offer, is just three miles away. You can enjoy the town and then then head back to this home away from all the congestion and traffic.
The backyard is large and private, and fully fenced. There’s plenty of outdoor seating between the two houses as well as a BBQ grill. Geneva National Golf Club, with its three 18 hole championship golf courses, is across the lake on Lake Como. Several more courses are just a short drive away, making the house perfect for golfers. The house is also an ideal destination for girls weekends, weddings (with the French Country Inn across the street, this could serve as the house for family), team building, couples, families, and adult groups of friends.
This home is an amazing time capsule that you will surely enjoy and the location is second to none! Not only will you be in the center of all the fun, but you’ll be able to enjoy the most magnificent sunsets in all of Lake Geneva from the house and yard. For the lucky ones staying for the 4th of July, you’ll have an incredible view of the spectacular Geneva National fireworks display that will take place directly across the lake. You won’t have to fight crowds and find parking, but instead will be able to enjoy them from the comfort of this home.
The local resorts have year round activities to keep our visitors busy all year. Winter is a great time to visit, as we are located near two ski hills, with ice fishing on the lake, great cross country skiing, ice skating and sledding nearby. Autumn is a beautiful time, as well, with gorgeous foliage throughout the area including breathtaking views across the lake. There are also orchards for apple picking and many fall and Halloween events to enjoy. Spring, too, is a great time. With the ice gone, Lake Como and Geneva come back to life! There is a strawberry and blueberry farm for picking up the street and plenty of other fun seasonal things to do and see.
We have a two night minimum from Labor Day through mid June, and have 7 night minimum stays on a Friday to Friday basis, during the summer months. If you have a larger group, The Lake Geneva Beach & Golf House, is located about a half block east on the same block, next to Mars Resort. The house also has an occupancy of twelve.
We take great pride in our positive feedback and strive to make every guest feel at home. Feel confident in booking this home.
