Backyard Relaxation and Fun!

by Vince

The property’s location is walking distance to downtown. The space was comfortable and spacious enough for our 10 guys. There was space in the backyard allowing us to play yard games and relax. The host allowed us early check in and was responsive whenever we reached out.

Great Location Walkable to Downtown

by Jennifer

5 star! Great getaway for 3 couples for the weekend. We did a show at Alpine and enjoyed Lake Geneva. We rode a tornado warning out in the basement - safe and sound! Highly recommend - great location walkable to downtown - and really nice and quiet neighborhood. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again and again!

Charming Darwin Home: Perfect for Bachelorette Party with Beautiful Decor and Comfortable Beds

by Analisa

The Darwin is absolutely charming! I hosted a weekend bachelorette party, and every one of the women in attendance commented on how lovely the house was. The decor, along with all of the interesting touches, such as the crown molding, and the intricate ceilings were outstanding. In addition, the beds were extremely comfortable, which is not always the case with Airbnbs. The neighborhood was adorable, and within a nice walking distance from downtown Lake Geneva. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you!

Great Experience for Our Guys Group!

by Justin W.

Last minute reservation. Beautiful house! We had 8 which allowed everyone somewhere to sleep without sleeping in the same bed as someone. If you are sharing beds you can easily fit 10. Overall great experience, close to the downtown area, and nice home to stay at.

Charming and Spacious Darwin House: Beautifully Renovated, Close to Lake and Downtown

by Janet

Had a great stay at The Darwin House. Beautifully renovated charming house in Lake Geneva. Spacious and well decorated. Just a few blocks from the lake and downtown yet off the beaten path so you didn’t realize how busy town was.
Highly recommend!

Spacious and Comfortable House for Moms and Teens: Convenient to Lake and Great for Relaxing

by Lydia

Beautiful house, plenty of space for three moms and four teenage girls! It’s a quick drive to the lake (parking adds up $$ but you can park for free in a neighborhood and walk a few blocks to the beach where you will pay again to get each person a wrist band to go in). Since Geneva charges for every little thing, we saved money by shopping at the nearby Walmart and cooking at the house. We were there during the hottest days of the summer so the house was a little warm, but there were plenty of fans provided so that helped us stay cooler, especially upstairs. The living room and patio are perfect spots to relax. Beds are comfortable. Bathrooms are clean. We enjoyed our stay!
