“5-Star General”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2009

I am not sure why this B&B has not received more ratings, but I doubt that will be the case for too long. Bob and Sue run a very well-kept B&B close to town, and are as nice as could be. The rooms are old school romantic and the breakfast is out of this world. It was by far the best value I found in Lake Geneva.

PS The house dog Cheddar is the sweetest, most energetic dog you will ever meet. She is also amazing skilled at fetch!

Sue and Bob are great hosts! We had a lovely stay! Slept in the General's room! Bed was very comfy and the private bath was roomy with all the amenities needed. We arrived late in the evening, so were not able to fully appreciate the beautiful property. LOTS of history here! Location is good. Value is outstanding. The breakfast that Sue prepares is to die for! My husband said, "I can't believe I ate so much!!!" Definitely, much care is put into everything they do. Rooms very comfortable and clean!! I've stayed at many B&B's and this is definitely one of the best!! Also, love the fact that they offer a AAA discount!!!

  • Liked — the quaintness of the property
  • Disliked — what's not to like?

We were there in 2003 and had a wonderful stay. We now notice they got their AAA rating which they were hoping to get. We have wonderful memories of our stay there.
