This was our first time visiting Lake Geneva and we were looking for somewhere relaxing and cozy since it was middle of winter. We stayed in the Stables #2 and the steam shower was my absolute favorite! Location-wise we could walk to the dock and where all the restaurants were in 10 minutes, but it was far enough away from...

Our stay at the Maxwell Mansion was amazing!! The mansion itself was nicely decorated and the bars were awesome! Our room in the carriage house was beautifully decorated and fancy upgrades. It was located close enough to downtown to walk but far enough to be quiet from street traffic. The staff was exceptional and the bartenders know how to make...

My fiancé and I love going on road trips to unique places-if you're looking for unique with gorgeous scenery even in the winter, this is it. The room looked exactly like the pictures, was extremely clean and if you love a steam shower, get the stable rooms. The bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in and the sheets...

We had a great time at the Maxwell Mansion over Valentines Day. The room was beautiful, I keep showing our friends pictures and telling them to go. We stayed in a King-Loft room which had a vaulted ceiling with dimmable lights, hot tub in the room, wood floors, the shower was amazing! Very romantic setting. They also had a very...

We had a very enjoyable visit, and enjoyed our stay there very much. The room was great, and the amenities were engaging. We particularly like the Apothecary Bar. The staff was very accommodating, and we were made to feel very welcome. The location was also great - walking distance to most everything in Lake Geneva. The ONLY complaint we had...

Dont tell others as the price may go up or get too busy. Best place in the area for quite some time. We saw that the Stables rooms have ChromeCast as their experimental rooms- awesome perk as we could watch our Netflix all night and lounge in bed.

My girlfriend and I stayed during the weekend of winter fest in Lake Geneva. The place was great! Room was very modern clean and nice. Activities around the town were awesome too. Definitely going to visit in the summertime. The only thing I was not a fan of was the hard bed and pillows but everything else was fantastic.

I cannot express enthusiastically enough how pleased I am with our decision to stay at Maxwell Mansion for our romantic weekend getaway. The price is not nearly the most outstanding factor in my experience, but it should be stated that the value is unheard of. At basically the same price of any ordinary hotel room you can stay at this...
