Single Family Vacation Home; 7 Bedrooms; Total of 12 beds; 5 Bath (3-full)
Since the age of 16, my dream was to build a vacation getaway home on a golf course that my entire family could enjoy. That dream came true 25 years later in 1992 when my wife and I built this beautiful ranch home in SE Wisconsin at the Geneva National complex. Now, our entire family (3 married children, their spouses and our 5 grandchildren) all look forward to coming here.....our Geneva National 'home away from home'. Come see why we like it so much. I know you will enjoy it as much as we do.
This house is great for family fun, golf outings, reunions or even work retreats. From the fully stocked kitchen to the Great Room to the huge outdoor patio to the finished basement, this home will perfectly fulfill your need for a long weekend getaway.
The home has 7 bedrooms with a total of two king size beds, a queen size bed and seven twin beds. There are 3 FULL bathrooms and 2 half baths. Four bedrooms are located upstairs and three are in our newly completed 2,000 sq. ft basement.
Our Kitchen is large...360 sq. ft. It is fully stocked and includes a cook top gas stove, oven and a micro-wave. With the kitchen table, the bar that separates the kitchen and the Great Room and the table in the adjoining full season porch area, your entire group can all eat at once.
The 650 sq. ft. Great Room contains a wood burning/gas fireplace with a 52' TV that includes cable, DVR, VHS and disc player and ample seating area.
The 360 sq. ft. all season porch is a wonderful gathering area. (It has been the site of many of our 'intense' family scrabble, trivial pursuit and poker games.)
The porch leads outside to our 600 sq. ft. stone patio that we just installed two years ago. The patio contains a fire pit, a patio table and two patio umbrellas.
Our backyard is huge (approx. 1/4 acre) and it's the perfect size for just about any outdoor games you wish to play. Adjacent to the back yard is the fairway for the beautiful par 4 10th hole on the Arnold Palmer course. The backyard faces directly west where, from the patio, we have a perfect view to watch the sunset.
The home is centrally located approx. 5 miles west of downtown Lake Geneva, 5 miles east of Delavan and 5 miles south of Elkhorn. Both Lake Geneva and Delavan feature large lakes for boating, swimming, tubing, and fishing. Sight-seeing tours are conducted on Lake Geneva. If shopping is your pleasure, there are plenty of specialty and retail spots in all three towns. Restaurants abound in the area.
Give us a call we'll answer any questions you might have.

About Jerry Frett
We are a family that lives in a west suburban Chicago location. We have three children (all married) with five grandchildren.
Jerry Frett purchased this House in 1991
Why Jerry Frett chose Lake Geneva
We wanted a family vacation spot on a golf course close to where we live full time so that we could minimize the travel time from our regular home to our vacation home.
What makes this House unique
Geneva National is a gated community that houses full time residents as well as part-time residents such as us. In addition to playing golf on the three championship courses that are located within the Geneva National complex, we enjoy the beautiful swimming pool, tennis courts, biking and walking paths all located within the Geneva National complex. We also enjoy going into the neighboring towns especially Lake Geneva and Delavan where boating, fishing and water sports abound. There are plenty of shopping, restaurants and sights to see. Of course, the headliner is the beautiful Lake Geneva itself located in the heart of Lake Geneva a few steps from downtown Lake Geneva where you can always find plenty of parking.

Brige Group Weekend
Very nice house with everything we needed for our group of 11 people. No problems at all. Owner is very easy to work with.
This house was FANTASTIC!
Came here on a golf trip with twelve guys...the proximity to all of the courses combined with the house made this our best trip in SEVENTEEN years. The house was spacious, everyone could spread out, and the outdoor area provided a lot of space for bags and hanging out. We cannot wait to book again next year:)
Perfect for a big group
Lots of room to accomodate our twelve-person group. We had plenty of room to spend time together and plenty of room for sleeping and bathroom/getting ready space!
Perfect family retreat! We had it for our sons wedding. Everyone was pleased and completely c!
We had a wonderful time in Lake Geneva. The house was a perfect retreat for the groomsmen and their partners. Easy for our elderly parents to get around. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax. Our only complaint was getting into the gated community. The gate keeper was curt with our guests who came to visit family.
So glad the house worked out well for your family's wedding. I am sure your memories of your stay at our home will last a long time. Sorry about the curt security attendant. I believe this to be an anomaly as normally, the security folks at GN are about as accommodating as you would want or expect. I will notify my contact at the HOA (to whom security reports) of your experience with the attendant.
Girl's two day getaway
The house was very roomy and comfortable.
