Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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; suites feature a full wet bar including a minifridge, and some also have sofa beds and gas fireplaces. Dining options include the steak-focused 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 water slides and a lazy river (passes available to guests for an additional fee).

The resort is located just 10 minutes from downtown Lake Geneva with its many boutique shops, restaurants and bars; Midwest Living magazine says the town is one of the Midwest's "Great Fall Color Getaways" and also a "Winter Wonderland."

The views of the golf course and water are simply beautiful! Lovely walking paths! A trolley or short car ride away from Timber Ridge Water Park and arcade for the children! Wonderful get-away- we go twice a year for a nice break!

Great pool. Great restaurants. Tons of kids were there that weekend so my daughter had fun making friends. They also had a trolley that made getting around the resort much easier.
Other Comments
When I checked in I had workers on my patio painting. I was told that they were finishing up and that they would not be returning. So my first afternoon/evening I could not use my patio and I had to keep my drapes pulled since there was absolutely no privacy. The next morning I had three men on my patio with paint cans and ladders still working. I did go to the front desk and complain. They did relocate me to another room, but they could not do so until late afternoon. I had to check out of my room, pack all of my stuff and put it in storage. Very inconvenient. Not to mention I did not have a room for most of Thursday. I have a 7 year old daughter and as you can imagine there is a lot of back and forth to our hotel room especially when using the pool. So that was not a great situation. Also upon checking out they did not have my correct rate that O was quoted from Travelzoo. They did finally adjust my bill, but that was another 1/2 hour at the front desk back and forth with the manager.
