Lake Geneva House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

We are now only doing 30 day rentals in compliance with Walworth County short term rental ordinance. Our 30 day rate is terrific and our home is still beautiful. Relative to other rental rates, this is a phenomenal rate for a lovely, quiet home.

A Country Home is a tastefully decorated, private home with three bedrooms and two baths, located on a rustic lane, set among beautiful oak trees within walking distance to beautiful Lake Geneva, WI. There are two spacious decks, a fireplace and a fun recreation room with ping-pong, pool table, television and treadmill. Deer and wild turkey love to meander through the yard, while you are eating breakfast on the deck. The area is great for long walks. You are walking distance from the lake and several horse farms. A Country Home provides hospitality to families and their pets! Perfect for family gatherings or a peaceful retreat.

We are the only home on Old Farm Road; the house is on 2 and a half acres. It is private and secluded - you can eat your breakfast on the deck in your jammies and no one will ever know. The front drive has a basketball hoop and the best skate board hill you have ever seen. Many families have stayed at our home and truly made precious and lasting memories there. We would be thrilled to help you plan your time in Lake Geneva, according to your unique needs. We are mid-way between Fontana and the town of Lake Geneva, not far from Black Point.

The home has been fully inspected by the State of Wisconsin for rental purposes.

Hope you will come!

I am a Mom, psychotherapist, dog lover and Christian - not neccessarily in that order - when not being a landlord on VRBO. Would love to have you rent from us. We truly treat you like a personal guest. We have lots of renters who return, send us baby pictures and stay in touch. References are available. I will be glad to help you plan your visit to the Lake Geneva area. I specialize in women's retreats and outings and have managed to keep lots of teenagers amused while visiting. Please don't hesitate to call or e-mail me. Linda

Why LINDA HOFF IRVIN chose Lake Geneva

My Dad became a writer late in his life. He hated pretentiousness and commercial settings. He fell in love with this secluded, private rereat like setting and this was where he came to write. I was blessed to inherit this home from him after he died unexpectedly.

What makes this house unique

It is an incredibly peaceful and serene location. It is truly a retreat setting. Our guests love staying here. We knock our socks off to take good care of you. A property manager is on call in case you need anything.

We loved the little house in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this home for two weeks in July 2014. Because we were planning to relocate to the area, we wanted to stay in a cozy place suitable for us, our kids, and our dog. We absolutely loved it. Fast forward to summer 2015, we asked the owner of we could do an extended stay there while we waited for our new home to be ready. They graciously accepted, and so we spent the summer on Old Farm Road. The accommodations were perfect for us (clean, organized, fabulous TV) but our favorite part was the property. The yard and trees; the wildlife; the resident toad who lives next to the front stoop and appears at night or after a rain - perfection 😊. Linn Pier is just a four minute drive away and the most fun to swim the kids and dogs during sunset evenings. This truly is a magical place, and we feel lucky to have started our family's memories of living here, there.

great vacation, great host

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house last October, when the autumn colors were just starting to show. The house itself is lovely, has a warm home-like feeling. The kitchen had everything we needed. We were 2 couples and a baby and it was perfect, because the baby got a separate room. We enjoyed the pool table. Basically just lazying about in the living room in the evening was a lot of fun , and probably is even better when it's snowing outside. The grounds were lovely, although it was too cold to actually sit outside. Have us a feeling of being out in the nature, which was a lot of fun. 15 min drive or less to the town of Lake Geneva, and a little less to the grocery store. Linda, the owner, was absolutely great, accommodating and helpful, more than we could have hoped for. For us, knowing that we're renting from someone we can trust is really important. We would absolutely come back if we had the chance. A great house for a weekend getaway.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved staying at this cabin earlier this spring. It was a lovely getaway from Chicago. Lots of room to spread out, read books, play with toys, shoot pool, run around the backyard, and eat family meals around the table. The cabin had everything we needed from kitchen supplies to an extra warm coat in the closet (thanks Linda!) for a chilly afternoon. We really enjoyed walking around the wooded neighborhood and accessing the Lake Trail for scenic walks around the lake. Thanks for the great getaway, we loved it!

Great Getaway !

  • 5 of 5

We loved the quiet atmosphere and perfect location. We were close to all the outdoor activities that we enjoy- hiking,biking, and relaxing with nature. The peaceful,private acreage

is priceless,and the house is clean and comfortable. It is close to town and the lake as well as many fine resturants and shopping. We have traveled throughout the Midwest and this is our favorite location by far!

Relaxaton At It's Best

  • 5 of 5

I have rented the country home at least 7 times over the past 8 years. Every time that I rented the cottage, my family has had a great time. The cottage is far enough away from the big city to get away and relax. It also makes you feel that you are by yourself when staying there. We had great family time when staying there. There were no distractions and we got to enjoy each other other and play a bunch of games.

The backyard is huge and our dog Rio loved every inch of it. We can't wait to go back again!

Quiet, parklike, lakeside retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was my families' 2nd stay at "A Country Home in Lake Geneva" and the home, once again, met our every expectation. The home is spacious with great decks in the back overlooking a parklike setting with deer and turkey and the finished basement is spacious with pool table, ping pong, and numerous games. The Wooddale community has a nice Lake Geneva beach area and the Linn boat launching area is two blocks down the road. The house is an excellent retreat for a family looking to experience Lake Geneva, get away from the hussle and bussle, re-energize, and enjoy the beautiful flora surrounding the home. We will definitely return to this retreat!

I love helping people plan their trip to the Lake Geneva area. I know lots of fun things to do - with or without kids. I am great at helping plan a girl's weekend and might even share some of my spa passes with you for the Abbey...I personally hate busy touristy places and can give you my perspective on what to avoid. Would love to help you plan an awesome stay.
