“The jewel in the crown of Lake Geneva's resorts" --

Why We Love It

  • Family friendly, with a summer day camp program for kids, indoor/outdoor pools, horseback riding and an ice-skating rink available on site
  • All rooms feature flat-panel TVs, granite bathrooms and lake or golf course views; most feature private balconies or patios
  • This Prairie-style retreat -- one of just four AAA 4-Diamond resorts in Wisconsin -- is just minutes from downtown Lake Geneva
  • This sprawling resort was originally built as the nation's first Playboy Club Hotel in the 1960s


Grand Geneva Resort & Spa is a sprawling chalet-style property 10 minutes from Lake Geneva’s town center. Originally designed as the first Playboy Club Hotel in the U.S. when it opened in 1968, the property takes inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright in its architecture and design. 

Rooms are country chic, with leather armchairs and antique-style furniture. Views overlook the lake or golf courses and most rooms have a private balcony or patio. Suites feature a full wet bar including a minifridge, and some also have sofa beds and gas fireplaces. 

Guests who upgrade to the club level will find a cozy private-access club room with a fireplace, where guests can take advantage of breakfast, snacks, drinks and evening hors d’oeuvres. Other dining options include the steak-focused Geneva Chophouse and Ristorante Brissago, both winners of multiple OpenTable Diner's Choice awards. 

Grand Geneva features indoor, outdoor and lap pools on site; guests can also access the nearby Timber Ridge sister resort with its 50,000-square-foot indoor water park, heated water slides and a lazy river (passes available to guests for an additional fee). The AAA 4-Diamond resort feels like an enormous country club, with two championship golf courses, including the Jack Nicklaus-designed Highlands -- GolfAdvisor calls it a "must play." 

The resort is located just 10 minutes from downtown Lake Geneva with its many boutique shops, restaurants and bars. When the tour boats are running, a cruise on the lake is highly recommended, but there's a trail that runs along the entire lakefront if you want to get a little closer to the historic homes that line the water.
