Today we travel to Lake Geneva, an upscale resort community located in southeastern Wisconsin. We begin with a docent led tour at Geneva Lake Museum. Here you can walk the brick-paved street of yesteryear where the exhibits capture every essence of Lake Geneva and its people.

Our included lunch will be at The Ridge Hotel. It’s located off the shores of Lake Como which overlooks Geneva National Golf Club. This property went through a multi million dollar transformation in 2016 and will surely satisfy the palate of each diner.

After lunch, its off to the Black Point Estate situated on a bluff overlooking Geneva Lake for a guided tour. This 20 room Queen Anne-style Cottage was built in 1888 and the estate has gone through a $1.9 million restoration and reopened in 2007. The Wisconsin Historical Society purchased the home in 2013 and now is accessible by road. (earlier years only by boat). In 2014, the estate was named among the best home-estate tours in the USA
by Fodor’s Travel.

Join us as we see one of the finest examples of Queen Ann architecture and Victorian furnishings in the Midwest. You won’t want to miss this tour!
