It was great to hear about your B & B experience at the historic inn and your enjoyment of Lake Geneva. Your dogs were so well behaved, the perfect travelers. I forgot to take a picture of them in the courtyard to place in our pet album. I will remember next time . There will be different hot entrees on...

There has been so many couples celebrating their anniversaries this year that I could have named the Inn the Anniversary Inn. Actually it is my 30th year anniversary for operating and loving being an innkeeper this May 2015. Thank You for your great review. Maureen

The location is great, the house was beautiful, and the food was delicious! Maureen was a great innkeeper!! She was waiting at the door for us and very friendly!...

My boyfriend and I went up to Lake Geneva for a triathlon and were bringing our dog. There were only about three places that allowed dogs and this was one of them. Maureen was the innkeeper and she was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. She is very kind and hospital. The food for breakfast that she cooked was delicious....

The best part of this property is the location. It is a just a few blocks from the center of Lake Geneva. The rest was a huge disappointment. Tired furniture, scratchy sheets, small rooms, bathroom could have been nice, as it was large and appointed with steam shower, etc., but it was not clean. The public areas of the house...
