Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, a sprawling chalet-style property 10 minutes from Lake Geneva’s town center that takes inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright's prairie-style architecture and design, is one of Wisconsin's best resorts (U.S. News & World Report Travel). 

Rooms are country chic with leather armchairs and antique-style furniture, plush cotton bedding, minifridges, complimentary coffee service and bottled water. The resort features seven different restaurants, cafes and lounges including the Geneva ChopHouse and Ristorante Brissago, both winners of multiple OpenTable Diners' Choice awards. 

This resort feels like an enormous country club with two golf courses and multiple pools on site; guests can also access the nearby Timber Ridge sister resort with its 50,000-square-foot indoor water park, heated waterslides and a lazy river (passes available to guests for an additional fee).

The resort is located just 10 minutes from downtown Lake Geneva -- sometimes referred to as "the Hamptons of the Midwest" -- with its many boutique shops, restaurants, bars and popular public beach.

Great location! Right off the main highway and close to downtown Lake Geneva.

The main lobby was located on the side of the complex and difficult to find initially. The entire resort looked a little run down and needs to be updated.

Hate the resort fee!! Extra $27.00 surprise fee added on at the end...leaves a bad taste as we check out...SO annoying!

We were in room 5305 and without a doubt, it used to be a smoking room. No matter what we tried, the smell lingered and we all complained of headaches over both days. It’s disappointing to have such an experience at a quality resort. The room was unfit for guests.

The rooms are comfortable and the service is great. The spa was a very nice add on for a reasonable price.
Other Comments
The room we had facing the parking lot was a little disappointing - would have liked to have a view of the resort. This is not on Lake Geneva - it's a few miles away. So if you want the lake you would choose a different property.
