You can’t beat fall in Lake Geneva. The wealthy homeowners in their stately mansions ringing the lake made sure there would be a spectacular fall color show every year. The vibrant hues of red, orange, yellow and green light the shores of Geneva Lake on fire, and draw guests in search of brilliant fall foliage displays in droves. Before you do anything else in Lake Geneva, take a stunning fall cruise around the lake, and take in the colorful splendor presented by these historic homes. Lake Geneva Cruise Lines has a variety of fun and interesting cruises to choose from. If you’d rather stay on land, you’ll get a similar view walking along Lake Geneva’s famous 21-mile Shorepath. After you’ve taken in fall’s exquisite show, hit downtown Lake Geneva for some shopping. The Cornerstone Shoppe & Gallery is a must.
Those fall evenings come quickly, but there’s still plenty to do after dark in Lake Geneva. One of the best ways to spend a fall evening is at Yerkes Observatory. It’s a spectacular place for stargazing on a brisk autumn evening. If you want to enjoy an evening out, take in a show at the Fireside Dinner Theater or the Tristan Crist Magic Theater, where you’re guaranteed an evening of fun. Finally, no getaway is complete without delicious meals. There’s no shortage of delicious restaurants to enjoy during your Lake Geneva excursions, either. Baker House, a Lake Geneva fine-dining favorite, is housed in a historic mansion built in 1885. Other popular restaurants include Popeyes, with it’s exquisite lake views, and Sprecher’s delicious Wisconsin beer cheese soup. You can even dine aboard Lake Geneva’s Cruise Line for a quintessentially indulgent Lake Geneva experience.
However you fill your days, the luxury of Chicago’s Gilded Age waits for you at our boutique hotel. Though there are plenty of lodging choices in Lake Geneva, there are none that will offer you the luxurious experience found at the Allyn Mansion Bed and Breakfast.
