"Our stay was great! The ambiance Friday night around the fire with the 3 piece jazz set up was very relaxing. The skiing was so much fun too, and just being in the lodge after a fun day. We love the Grand Geneva, and will definitely be back!"

Rooms & 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."

Our stay was great! The ambiance Friday night around the fire with the 3 piece jazz set up was very relaxing. The skiing was so much fun too, and just being in the lodge after a fun day. We love the Grand Geneva, and will definitely be back!

Our room was very cold. It was very cold outside (0 degrees), but it was difficult to heat the room, even when we had the thermostat on 78 degrees. We also had a baby in the room next to us that we could hear very loudly crying late at night and early in the morning. I know that can't be controlled, but it made it difficult to get rest.

Easiest hotel check-in in history! The Grand Geneva does the most amazing Christmas decor and activities! It has been our tradition to spend a weekend there during the holidays, and plan on keeping the tradition going.
