A pleasant and interesting short boat ride/tour from the riviera docks. The tour was interesting and a beautiful estate/grounds.

“Well Worth the Time”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

What a treat! Getting to the estate also requires a boat tour of Lake Geneva. It is 45 min out and 45 min back with the tour of Black Point taking about two hours. It is the perfect way to spend an afternoon. The estate was recently donated to the State of Wisconsin in its entirety, furnishing and all. It is as if one walks into the Seipp house. The docents are knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The estate is magnificent. The other homes on the lake and the history of the properties are amazing

“Black Point Estate is a unique attraction!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

It's like stepping back into the 1880s with authentic period pieces and narration of the Conrad Seipp saga - one of Chicago's top beer moguls.

Go by boat to see a real house in an historical context. A famous land mark on Lake Geneva owned by only one family for many generations

“Black Pointe Estate”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Went to see this estate on Sunday Sept 29, 2013. Went via the boat tour. This mansion was well worth the trip. Built in 1888 and all the furnishings inside are the originals. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Totally interesting if you are interested in hearing about another era.
