Authentic and real. My wife and I have stayed at numerous BnBs all over the country and this has to be the most charming and nicest ever. The owners Sue & Bob, are warm and friendly. Sue is a 4th generation owner of the property and actually grew up in the house. In fact a portrait of her great great... More

This place is like visiting Grandma and Grandpas. Bob and Sue make you feel like family. The rooms are decorated so beautifully. Each one is unique and has a name that matches it's decor. They are filled with warm and comfortable furniture and lots of antiques and fresh flowers. It's like a page right out of a history book. The... More

We stayed in the Generals Room (king size bed). The property is beautiful and the owners are fantastic. Clean, well kept. Breakfast was AMAZING. We stayed in November (off season) and were the only people there. The owners are great people and have lived in the home for a LONG time (grew up there). We'd stay again absolutely!

If you like history, friendly service and great food, this is a very nice place to stay. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating. You can walk to the lake shore path or they will drop you off and pick you up. It is a 3 minute drive in to the downtown area. They have wifi, but didn't work well... More

This was the first bed and breakfast I had stayed at. We took the room because everything else in Lake Geneva was booked of course. It was a quaint building and the fact that we arrived early did not seem to pose a problem. Bob greeted us and gave us a tour of the building. Although there was a bit... More

We were in town for a friend's wedding and decided we wanted to stay at a bed and breakfast. I am so happy that we picked this place because the whole experience was great. The home is historic and has a neat story behind it (ask Sue for details :) ). We stayed in the Gardenview room, and it was... More

Sue & Bob are very nice and accommodating. The inn and rooms are clean and there is a lot of history in this old residence. A little tricky to find but worth looking for. Sue made the best B&B breakfast we ever had!

My husband and I stayed at General Boyd's for a couple nights and loved our stay. Our room, the Rose room was very clean and comfortable. The Rose room is the smallest room, but still has a nice private bath (bath just outside the room, not inside like the rest of their rooms). This bath was recently redone, and I... More

We had an outstanding time at General Boyd's! Neither my (now) husband or I had been to Lake Geneva or a B&B before and this has set the bar high!
