The Maxwell Mansion, est 1856, in Lake Geneva, WI is a secluded haven for travelers in the heart of the charming downtown. Set on 1.5 manicured acres of gardens less than two blocks to the lake, this boutique hotel it is a true escape. Built as the personal home to one of Chicago and Lake Geneva's founding fathers, Dr. Phillip Maxwell, the property has hosted dignitaries and socialites for generations. The entire estate along with all its buildings have undergone a complete metamorphosis retaining its original character yet exploding with excitement of the new, the unique and the unexpected.
Two blocks east of the lake, you'll find the Italianate-style Mansion, nestled among century-old oak trees and picturesque gardens. The property features much more than the Mansion itself with over 28 rooms and multiple event spaces between three buildings on the property. Each building has its own distinctive style. In the Historic Mansion, you'll find six rooms with old-world sophistication. Book a room in the Carriage House for a modern equestrian-styled experience. And finally the Stable Suites blend luxurious and dramatic finishes to provide the most decadent stay.
Travel back in time to the 1880s Apothecary Bar (a tribute to the original owner Dr. Philip Maxwell), where drinks are uniquely crafted for every guest. The large glass pane windows of the Apothecary overlook the garden lounge with several outdoor fireplaces and a bocce ball court. Guests and locals-in-the-know can access the hotel's subterranean Speakeasy—be sure to get the secret password at check-in. In the summer, take advantage of the Terrace Lounge & Tiki Bar for outdoor cocktails. For breakfast, lunch and dinner, you'll find plenty of options in the area. The Mansion staff is happy to point you to their favorite local spots.
