A cozy lake condo in Wisconsin proved to be a great destination point for my recent girls’ weekend with my daughters. They needed a break from their kids; I just wanted time to relax and unwind. Since it’s “Cozy Living Saturday,” (the first Saturday of the month), this cozy condo in Lake Geneva is a perfect post for today.
The condo is located across the street from Lake Geneva in this pretty two-story red house. The first floor is a wine bar and the entire second floor was our home for the weekend.
A pretty front door served as our entrance to the condo on the second floor. You might remember that I posted a walking tour of Lake Geneva a couple weeks ago. I still need to share the rest of the homes from that excursion.
I found this cozy lake condo on VRBO and it didn’t disappoint! It was super clean and super cute.
Here’s another view of the cozy living room that faces the lake. You can see the golden leaves of the trees through the windows. Lucky for us, it was peak season for fall colors.
Attention to detail is evident throughout the Lake Geneva condo. The black floor vases create visual impact in this cozy little corner by a pair of sliding French doors. I don’t know if you can tell, but the floors are painted throughout.
The living room flows right on into the kitchen and dining area. Another set of sliding doors provides awesome views of the lake outside.
A pair of wooden bar stools cozy up to an overhang at the end of the kitchen counter. Every inch of space was carefully used.
The cozy lake condo kitchen was fully equipped but I have to confess that we didn’t do any cooking. There are plenty of great restaurants in the town of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin and most of them were within walking distance.
You can see the hallway leading to the bedrooms and bathroom from the kitchen island. Note the arched detailing of the book shelf in the living room at left. The bulletin board at right had all the information we needed for WiFi, check-in and check-out, and other pertinent info.
The coastal style bathroom is the first door on the right. It’s small and cute and somehow we managed to not fight over the bathroom despite there being three females.
At the end of the short hallway is the bedroom with a large bunkbed. There are two things on my priority list when it comes to choosing a vacation rental – cleanliness and comfortable beds. Location and decor are also pretty important. The lakefront condo checked all my boxes!
We let my daughter Bridget have the largest bed since she’s 8 months pregnant and was in desperate need of good sleep. Her two young boys stayed at home with their dad for the weekend.
Let’s head out to the deck which was a big reason for choosing this condo for our girls’ weekend. The deck is large and you can see most of the lake from up here.
Here are views of the lake from the deck. So beautiful!
The sandy beach is filled with vacationers during the summer months. We opted to visit the lake during the fall so it would be quieter. Not to mention with the virus on the rise, less people seems safer.
Here’s the view looking to the west from the condo’s deck.
Just a block away from the lake and condo is the Inspired Coffee Shop, which has a unique mission. Seems like we always manage to find a cozy place for coffee on our trips.
Like my hometown, Lake Geneva has turned older homes into charming shops. We were able to walk to all of them. This is Delaney Street Mercantile where I found teddy bears for Charlotte Joan and Cove (currently still in Bridget’s womb). The bears were covered in shaved alpaca fur and were so very soft.
This store is right next door and had lots of vintage and antique finds.
And a couple more older homes turned into commercial space. The entire town is so charming and if you haven’t visited, I encourage you to do so. You won’t be disappointed.
Whew! That was a lot of pictures. You can book the lakefront condo on VRBO. It’s so charming and comfortable – I highly recommend it.
Now it’s time to visit my cozy living friends at their inspirational links below. Be sure to welcome Marty at A Stroll Thru Life. She’s new to our group this month!
