Where to stay in Lake Geneva?

My husband and I are spending a weekend in Lake Geneva and would like to be at a B&B or hotel walking distance from the shops and restaurants in town. Any suggestions? Also how about the best restaurant?

1. Re: Where to stay in Lake Geneva?

Here are some options for lodging all within walking distance of the shops and restaurants in downtown Lake Geneva. Since you didn't specify a price range, I have tried to give you a range of lodging in each category.


Bella Vista ww.bellavistasuites.com

Cove of Lake Geneva www.cove-lake-geneva.com

Mill Creek Hotel www.millcreekhotel.com


Golden Oaks Mansion ww.goldenoaksmansion.com

Eleven Gables Inn & Cottage www.lkgeneva.com

Nautical Inn of Lake Geneva www.the nautical.biz


Grand Geneva Resort and Spa www.grandgeneva.com

(this would NOT be within walking distance...it is just a short drive 2-3 miles out of town)

Lake Geneva Comfort Suites comfortsuites.com/hotel-lake_geneva-wisconsi…

(this is located on the edge of town and is about a 6-7 block walk)

As for restaurants, again you didn't specify what you are looking for, so I've just given you a range.

The French Country Inn for a romantic evening and good food (also a great place to stay, but not within walking distance of shops) www.frenchcountryinn.com

or www.kirschs.com for the restaurant

The ChopHouse at Grand Geneva (the resort is mentioned above) for a great steak www.grandgeneva.com

Hemingways www.hemingwaysportofcall.com for a Key West type atmosphere (restaurant, bar and live entertainment)

Gino's East www.ginoseast.com for Chicago-style pizza

I would also suggest you check the listings on the Lake Geneva Trip Advisor page for comments on these lodging/restaurants suggestions and for others that may interest you. Hope some of this helps. Post again if you need more specific information.
