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. Between the kitchen table, the bar that separates the kitchen and the Great Room and the table in the adjoining full season porch area, up to 16 people 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.

Jerry Frett purchased this house in 1991
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.
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 we always find plenty of parking.
Perfect place. The house was more beautiful than the description and pictures showed. We stayed October fest weekend, had 5 couples and we had more than enough room. Loved the kitchen and all the extras included. Very clean and had everything we needed. Have stayed in Lake Geneva over the years in hotels and condos and prefer this to any of them. Jerry answered our questions in a timely manner. We all agreed that we definitely would be back again.
The house was very accommodating. Had everything you would need and plenty of space.
We recently attended a wedding at the club with our family and were looking for lodging that would be more user friendly than multiple hotel rooms. Conveniently located in an adjoining gated community, this home had many bedrooms (main floor and basement) enough bathrooms for a large group, open living areas upstairs and down, a play area (with toys), booster seats, highchair and crib, and two large eating areas, a nice kitchen and beautiful location on the golf course. This home would be good for guys on golf vacation, girls shopping trip etc. Very clean, well-maintained, and reasonable priced.
Great property ! Plenty of room for everyone, will stay again our next trip to Lake Geneva.
The last time I visited was with my girlfriends, this time I took my family. They had an absolute ball, the house lacks for nothing. Although there was no snow this year we were able to occupy ourselves and keep the fun going. Thanks for a great mini vacation!!!
