Lake Geneva MapJust an hour's drive from Chicago and Milwaukee, Lake Geneva developed in the 1800s as a summer retreat for the wealthy. Today, it remains a popular destination for thousands of people seeking a getaway.

This is the largest and deepest lake in southern Wisconsin. At 5262 acres, 7 miles long and 135' deep at its deepest point, Lake Geneva is a cold water spring fed lake. The Nautical Inn is just 3 short blocks from the public access to the lake, boat rentals and moorings. Or bring along your boat since a private area for boat and trailer parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis, right at The Nautical Inn.

After you have settled in, you can stroll out the front door to our Historic Main Street for a leisurely day of shopping or a visit to our famous Riviera Beach Area. Located on the beautiful shores of Geneva Lake, the Riviera Lakefront Facilities can offer you the nostalgic memories of a bygone era and the scenic beauty of the lakefront. Boutiques, shops, restaurants, carriage rides and daily boat cruises are favorites of our guests.

The Lake Geneva area is a Mecca for recreational pursuits. A walking path over 20 miles long surrounds the lake. Enjoy the scenic wonder of the tree-studded shores dotted with fabulous mansions of yesteryear. A number of challenging courses await the avid golfer with 25 courses within 25 miles. Spas, horseback riding, fishing charters and public parks are all available for year round fun. Winter activities include the Winter Festival, downhill or cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.

Whether you seek a great place to stay with the kids, have a family reunion, golf outing or an intimate couples retreat, then escape from the everyday hustle and bustle and visit us in the "Heart of Lake Geneva" where visitors have been coming to relax and play year round for more than a century...

Your hosts welcome you to a peaceful, fun and relaxing stay at The Nautical Inn...

The Trip Advisor says - Take a long deep breath and kiss your stresses good-bye: this lovely, year-round resort town offers a laid-back atmosphere that lets you slowly unwind. Beach buffs can don their swimsuits and head for one of several beaches on seven-mile-long Geneva Lake, which also offers a plethora of water sports. Leisurely cruises on restored historic yachts and replicas of paddle wheel steamers carry passengers past stately lakefront summer mansions, including some Victorian estates. Landlubbers can take a self-guided hike around the perimeter of the lake, which stretches some 21 miles. Laid-back, however, doesn't mean there isn't plenty to do. Choose from museums, a water park for younger kids, the world's largest refracting telescope at Yerkes Observatory or entertainment at the Belfry Music Theatre. Winter is even quieter but no less filled with fun. Head to The Mountain Top, a popular family ski spot, or choose from horseback riding, skating, ice boating, hayrides or sleigh rides. Whatever time of year you go, Lake Geneva will charm you.
