Guestbook comments from the owner

John,It's been quite busy around here so we haven't had a chance to respond to your request for a critique of our stay. The stay was quite good, but too brief. The beds were plentiful and amazingly comfortable, the board games and the ping-pong table kept the kids busy. All in all we had a good time. We all enjoyed the fire pit and the "s'mores." Thanks for the prompt deposit refund. Phil

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This was a really cool house and worked great for a ladies weekend getaway! So much space, really cool bar, and great views of the lake. There were 14 of us so every bed was full but didn't feel crammed by any means. I might suggest bringing your own pillow(s) as the ones provided were pretty thin. But we all said we would return again! Hopefully next time it won't rain so we can enjoy the small beach and fire pit across the street :)

The Lake House was an amazing bachelor paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I heard of the Lake House from a friend and I decided to make it the destination for my best friend's bachelor party. It ended up being the perfect place to fit all our needs. We had more than enough places to sleep for the party. The house was clean and well prepped prior to our arrival. John was very informative and easy to contact. The fireplace on the beach was a great for some late night s'mores and the deck was well sized for our bbq and cornhole. We also had a fantastic time renting a pontoon through Uncle Ed's pontoon rental. Overall, I would definitely recommend the Lake House to a friend for a great weekend getaway!

Excellent Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I hosted a bachelor party here over Memorial Day weekend and had a great time! John was very helpful in answering all of my questions and made sure our group had an enjoyable weekend. The outdoor patio is perfect for grilling and there is even a nice yard where we played bags and enjoyed the weather! In addition, the inside of the house was very clean and included an awesome full size bar and ping-pong table. Ample parking and very spacious interior makes this a great choice for large groups. I would definitely recommend this house for anyone looking for a weekend getaway on the lake!

My men's group and I rented this property for a weekend retreat. While the space downstairs was adequate for our needs, we found it awkward since it clearly used to be a bar/restaurant which was renovated without much thought regarding its conversion. At least half the light bulbs in the common areas downstairs were burned out (making doing anything at night difficult) and the air vents were covered with dust and grime. The real trouble with the house though, was upstairs. The sleeping and bathroom conditions were not acceptable and not at all what we expected. The property description refers to "beds," which we found to mean (in some cases) air mattresses. It also specifically states that all bedding is provided, which is NOT the case; some "beds" had just a mattress pad and/or ancient bedspread which (trust me) you would NOT want touching your skin. This would have bothered me more than it did, however, had my room not been infested with bugs, making it impossible for me to sleep there...bedding or not. To top it off, the owner hides ridiculous charges in the fine print in order to keep the daily rate reasonable for things like pets, cleaning (trust me, nobody's cleaned this place in a while) and a "holding tank pump (I'm guessing if there is really a tank that needs pumping, it doesn’t cost what he charges to pump and I'm guessing it rarely gets pumped) and a service fee. In addition, the owner FINALLY returned our security deposit, but only two days later than promised in the contract and not without prodding. I should note that we could not bring any of the problems to the owner/landlord's attention since we had non-stop activities planned for the short time we were there and did not want to be interrupted; plus we feared he would be less than responsive, given our past communications.

*Note: I have pictures of all items mentioned (bugs included) so don’t believe any denials by the owner.

Owner's Response: Bruce, Thank you for your reply. We are sad to hear that you do not have an enjoyable stay at The Lake House and wish you would have contacted us sooner so we could personally see these issues you are speaking of. Your comments here came a month after your stay. We definitely disagree with many of the items in your review and so would many other previous guests (look at all or past reviews). In regards to the mattress, there are NO air mattresses in the entire house. Maybe you are referring to the blue casings we put over each mattress underneath the sheets to ensure a sanitary bed between each stay? Also, each bed has a full set up sheets, multiple pillows and full comforters which were all purchased within the last 2 years after the renovation was complete. We walked the entire house before you arrived and did not see any bulbs burnt out but with that said, all you would have had to do was call and we could have replaced anything that was out. We know you were upset with the pet deposit when you added a pet last minute but that is outlined in the contract and upfront. Pets can cause a lot of damage, we have and do own multiple rental properties and have learned this lesson. Your pet did not leave any damage, thank you for that. In regards to the holding tank pump, that is typical for this area near the lake instead of a septic tank. It must be pumped regularly and is. Again, this is outlined upfront and if you did not agree with it you could have stayed elsewhere. The house IS indeed professionally cleaned between each guest, we can provide invoices stating this. We know the weather was not great during your stay but other than that we are not sure why you are so unhappy and would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you so we can review everything. Thank you, The Lake House

This house was formerly a bar that was converted into a rental cabin. It was very cool. We went snow tubing at Wilmot. Parents hung out at the played in the apartment up stairs..lots of video games and board games! We are hoping to come back in the summer.

Falling in love with Lake Geneva is easy… Maybe it’s the way the water shimmers off the lake or the way the sunset hits the trees. Or maybe it’s the amazing sensation of soaring through the air and laughing with friends on a zip line adventure, or going up in a hot air balloon, way above a glistening array of water and beautifully landscaped mansions. Or maybe … it’s just an afternoon of pampering and relaxation at one of the many area spas, or taking a stroll in downtown Lake Geneva, browsing in the unique shops or stopping for a bite to eat. Whatever your choice, Lake Geneva offers events, colors, tastes and wonders for each and every season.

Spring: walk the lake shore path, cruise the lake, browse the shops, and at night, find an outside fire pit to keep you warm. Summer: beaches, boating, paddleboarding, jet skiing, kayaking and a multitude of cruising options – lake living at its best. Fall: view the colorful fall foliage from a hot air balloon, follow the shoreline via cruise boat and enjoy a plethora of events, from Oktoberfest to Halloween Happenings around the lake. Winter: skiing, snowshoe hikes through the woods, snowboarding, sledding and winter ziplining adventures. And when it’s time to come out of the cold, you can relax with a massage, snuggle by a fire or dine overlooking the lake.
