Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks for the great Spring Break Getaway!! We loved spending time with our cousins here. It was the perfect spot for the Milwaukee Cousins & the Chicago Cousins to hang out, watch movies, play board games and laugh. We made ourselves at home and had a big sleepover party. We couldn't be happier. Thanks again!!

Lake Geneva retreat

  • 5 of 5

Deb's Nautical home really was a couple blocks from downtown Lake Geneva and the lake itself. Being able to walk places, rather than trying to find a parking place definitely enhanced our stay there.

The home is very comfortable. We rented both upper and lower floors and had the max # of people there - and it worked very well for us. There was always a place some could go to get away from others!

Besides the home living well - the deck and the front porch were great! We used them all the time.

AND - there was a wonderful tree in the yard that our grandchildren really enjoyed climbing.

We cooked out, we cooked in, we walked to restaurants.

We're looking forward to another visit!

Affordable & Convenient

Interior of the house was nicer than expected; perfect location for a large group who have never been to Lake Geneva. Everything is in walking distance.

Successful Weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Nautical house A to host my buddies bachelor party and we couldn't have been happier with the space. Very comfortable and definitely sleeps the 16 that's advertised. The weather wasn't the best while we were there, so even though we planned on being outside playing bean bags and grilling out, the inside was more than enough to keep everyone busy with games. House location also was perfectly ideal to walk to bars and restaurants. If u love lighthouses, this is the place for you. Great experience!!

Amazing weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my 30th birthday with 15 of my friends. We stayed at Nautical A and had the best time! Everyone was happy with the space, bedding, and the proximity to downtown Lake Geneva. There were plenty of board games to keep us occupied. The grill was great, the kitchen had everything we needed. My friends haven't stopped texting me asking when the next trip will be. Debi was also great and answered any questions we had promptly. We will be back! Thank you!

A Charming Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our bookclub thoroughly enjoyed a weekend away at this charming home in Lake Geneva. The central location near all the shops and restaurants was a big convenience. The house was nicely furnished in a nautical theme (naturally) and very clean. The beds were comfortable and everyone had plenty of room to spread out. A great weekend away!

Wonderful weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

My group of 14 women stayed in the house for two nights at the beginning of December. We loved the layout of the house and the space was very generous for a group of our size. There were plenty of chairs in the house for us to sit and table space for meals. The kitchen was a great size and had everything we needed to serve snacks and dinner in the house. The property description was exactly as advertised and the pictures were accurate. Upon our arrival, the property was clean and it was easy to gain access with the instructions provided in the welcome letter. We only had a short walk to nearby restaurants and bars to visit during the weekend. Overall I enjoyed my stay at this property and would highly recommend.

Due to the number of inquiries about the home's location, it is truly located within the town of Lake Geneva and NOT outside of the town's city limits. The Nautical Inn is just 3 short blocks from the public access to the lake, beach, boat rentals and moorings. After you have settled in, you can stroll out the front door to our Historic Main Street for a leisurely day of shopping or grab a bite to eat and one of the great restaurants.

There are over 25 golf courses in the Lake Geneva area.
