Whether you want to enjoy the beauty of fall by foot or behind the wheel, you won’t have to go far to see the finest fall foliage Wisconsin has to offer.  Book your room at our Boutique Hotel near the shores of Comus Lake today.  For maximum enjoyment, you may want to consider a midweek stay to avoid the inevitable fall crowds.

Best Fall Foliage Displays

When thinking about where to find the best fall foliage displays, many automatically consider the New England states to be the best of the best.  However, Lake Geneva was recently listed as one of America’s Best Towns for Fall Colors by Travel and Leisure Magazine.  In fact, it ranks as the 9th best town, behind more traditional places like historic Stowe, Vermont and Portsmouth, New Hampshire. That’s an impressive honor.

What makes fall so beautiful in Lake Geneva?  It’s a combination of the beautiful, historic mansions that still ring the lake, and their well-manicured and landscaped gardens.  When these beautiful homes were first constructed, trees were planted to intentionally create a long-lasting and stunning display of fall colors.  The legacy of these landscape architects lives on each fall in beautiful Lake Geneva.  Here are our favorite ways to enjoy the beautiful fall colors in and around Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.

Fall Foliage by Boat

The Lake Geneva Cruise Line is a stunning attraction and fun way to spend a day or evening any time of the year. However, in the fall, it’s extraordinary.  Not only will you enjoy an in-depth historical narration about the many estates and mansions that line the shores of beautiful Geneva Lake, you’ll enjoy a stunning 360-degree view of the magical fall foliage on display.
