Our Place

Spring has sprung.
The grass grows, the wind blows and the sun shines. Golf courses are open and busy with golfers who were eagerly waiting to partake of their favorite pass time. The courses are getting greener with every passing day. Hawk’s View, Grand Geneva, Geneva National, and Lake Lawn are all open, with plenty of tee times for early spring golfers. Paradise mini golf has opened for the season and is filled with teenagers, adults and families excited to get out and enjoy some outdoor activity.

The stables over at Grand Geneva are open and offer trail rides and pony rides seven days a week. Take a guided ride through gorgeous trails, the woods, up and down hills, and even over a bridge, while enjoying nature and the beautiful spring setting.

The Lake Path is ready to be traveled and enjoyed by all with its beautiful picturesque scenery.  All hikers will find grand estates, with extensively manicured lawns, and a variety of plants and flowers to enjoy.

Gage Marine is kicking off the 2021 season early, and offering pre-season tours out of Williams Bay. Tours will be Saturdays and Sundays during the month of April with a ninety-minute tour of the lake aboard the Grand Belle. All tours will depart from Gage Marine/Pier 290.  There will be no tours from the Riviera Docks in Lake Geneva at this time due to construction (which is scheduled to end on May 1st).

Another restaurant bites the dust.
The restaurant, previously known as Chicago Café and Geneva Restaurant, and most recently known as Harry’s Café, located at 808 Main Street in downtown Lake Geneva, is closed. Harry’s was known for its great breakfast and Bloody Mary’s, but also a great choice for any meal. On Wednesday nights, pre-covid-19, Harry’s also offered live blues music which was very popular. With the arrival of the pandemic that ended, and so did much of its business, leading to today’s announcement of the closing. Unfortunately, this is not uncommon for small businesses and restaurants all over the country because of what happened with the effects of the virus. The restaurant is located is now up for sale so we wait to see what will take its place.
