Seems like I’m getting the traveling bug out of me before we hunker down for the winter. My daughters and I took a short weekend trip to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. I chose to go for a walking tour of the historic area and take some photos while they opted to nap Saturday afternoon.
I don’t know what it is about old stone and brick houses that I love so much, but this one caught my eye with its dark green shutters, double front door, and black wrought iron fence.
Lake Geneva has plenty of older Victorian style homes throughout the downtown neighborhood. Some have been converted into stores. This one has unique embellishments under the peak.
A variety of older homes can be enjoyed around the lake area. A creamy stucco charmer wears a red tile roof.
One house was just as pretty as the next and I imagined what it would be like living on such idyllic streets with a nearby lake.
The Halloween spirit proved to be alive and well at some of the homes on the walking tour. This creamy brick house is just amazing!
Not a Halloween decoration per se, but this older Victorian home is painted all black. I’ve noticed more black houses these days when scrolling through Pinterest.
You know I love a red house and I found a few in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. In fact, we stayed in a red house during our girls’ weekend. I’ll share a tour of it this Sunday!
It’s the little details that make a home stand out – like the patterned peak on this house.
Fish scale siding, two-toned windows, and more fancy painted trim work appear on this beautiful, green Victorian charmer.
Here’s another side of the same house. Thought was given to every viewing angle.
This is about half of the Lake Geneva, Wisconsin walk tour photos I took. I’ll share the rest next week – you don’t want to miss them!
