Just an hour's drive from Chicago and Milwaukee, Lake Geneva developed in the 1800's 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 homes are just 3 short blocks from the public access to the lake, boat rentals and moorings. Or bring along your water toys, since boat and trailer parking is available right at The Nautical Inn.

After you have settled in, you can stroll out the front door to 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 Lake front Facilities can offer you the nostalgic memories of a bygone era and the scenic beauty of the lake front. 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 the Lake Geneva Area where visitors have been coming to relax and play year round for more than a century...

Cancellation Policies

You are reserving rental homes, which means when we experience a cancellation the potential loss for us is 100%. We are not a hotel with hundreds or even dozens of rooms to offset this kind of loss. Once we accept your reservation and block off the time, we will no longer accept new requests for that time period. We field hundreds of reservation requests, so it is highly likely that any time period reserved (and then ultimately cancelled), would have been reserved by another party. If you must cancel your reservation, we will make every attempt to re-rent the homes.  Written notification is required by the signing tenant in order to release the existing rental agreement back to us in an effort to rent the homes again. At that time we will make the homes available for rent in an effort to rent the property.  Should the homes be re-rented for the full amount the following will apply: You will be charged a $300.00 cancellation fee, all credit card transactions ran will be subject to a 5% fee or $50 whichever is greater. Should the homes need to be discounted to get re-rented, you will be required to sign a release accepting the discounted rate and the above mentioned cancellation and credit card fees will apply.  You will receive a refund for the balance which will be sent to you once the new rental is secured and payment has been received in full. Should the homes not be re-rented no refunds or partial refunds will be given, you are responsible for payment in full. If the possibility of a cancellation concerns you, please look into trip cancellation insurance.  There are several sites online that explain the policies, and offer this service such as or

11 of us came from Chicago for a ski and spa weekend. We usually get 3 condo suites at The Cove, but we tried the Nautical this year. It's great with equal parts Big Chill and The Real World. We went to check out the bowling alley and they were having a Muscular Dystrophy event, my friend Jason won first prize. The house is great...

We came up here to celebrate the 40th birthdays of two good friends - we had a wonderful time and LOVED the location of the home! Thank You for allowing us to relax, unwind and leave the hubbies and kids home for a bit!

12 nursing classmates descended on the Nautical Inn and had a wonderful time reminiscing our graduation 50 years ago. We really appreciated the well stocked accommodations, decorated so cleverly. The luncheon cruise was wonderful. We also enjoyed the beautiful area, attractions, great restaurants and shopping. Thank You for arranging such beautiful weather!!! Thanks so much
School of Nursing Class

Thank You so much for accommodating us so last minute. Our family really enjoyed this place. It is very comfortable. We have had a great time in Lake Geneva and thanks again for the great pontoon boat. We had a blast. We will be back for sure and stay at this house. What a great location. Thanks Again,
Poretto- Escoto Family

We just got back to St. Louis last night after our stay at the Nautical Inn, and I wanted to let you know what a terrific time we had. Everything was perfect. We angled the dining room table so we could butt the kitchen table up to it, and had plenty of room for all of us to play cards and enjoy meals together.

We were all so impressed at how thoughtful you were, from that terrific notebook you put together, to the wonderfully stocked kitchen, to the extra bathroom supplies and the card table and chairs that were waiting for us.

After negotiating the downtown traffic for a couple of hours, we really appreciated the convenience of the parking area behind the house. And you were absolutely right - we could walk to everything!

My only real worry was how 11 adults would share 2 bathrooms!! I am happy to report that we had no problems at all! Obviously our group has learned how "to share well with others". :)

Thanks again for everything. You can be sure we will spread the word about your outstanding accommodations!
