Lake Geneva Real Estate – It’s A Great Time To Buy

I had the pleasure of showing property first thing this morning to a really nice new customer looking for a home with a boat slip on Lake Geneva. It was -3 but the sun was shinning and no one was complaining. Now is a great time to be in the market looking for real estate in the Geneva Lakes Area if you want to have your weekend get away home ready and waiting for you to enjoy this summer. So don’t wait.

Ice Fishing…

Ice Fishing on Lake GenevaInterested in attacking the cold from a different angle?

Are you one of those people that find great pleasure in sitting on the frozen lake waiting for a fish to bite?  If so, current reports state that the average depth of the ice on Geneva Lake is 6-8 inches so dress warm, grab your fishing gear and head out.

Don’t have the gear?  We suggest you consider checking out Geneva Lake Bait and Tackle.  They offer guided ice fishing on Geneva, Delavan and many of the surrounding lakes as well as ice shanty rentals and everything an angler could possibly need.  You can reach them at (262) 245-6150, or visit them at 2885 Highway 67 in Delavan.

With the proper equipment (and a bit of luck) you can expect to catch a wide variety of fish including Bluegill, Brook, Brown, Lake and Rainbow Trout, Northern Pike, Splake, Large and Smallmouth Bass and Walleye.

Happy Angling!

Electric Children’s Christmas Parade…

Christmas ParadeThis Saturday, December 6th is a great time to bundle up and head into downtown Lake Geneva as local businesses and organizations light up the streets for the 39th Annual “Electric Children’s Christmas Parade” at 5:00 p.m.

The parade route starts at Marshall and Williams Streets and runs south on Broad Street to Main and west on Main to Cook Street.  You will find that there are not only lights on the fire trucks that lead the parade but on all the floats and many of the band instruments as well.  The only thing that ever makes this event any better is when Mother Nature adds a few snowflakes.

This parade has become a holiday tradition for not only the residents that live in and around the Lake Geneva area, but also for the thousands who visit the area during the year.  After the parade, stop in at one of the many places downtown for a cup of hot chocolate to help you warm up, and then head back out to check out some of the retailers in town.  It’s a great night to do a little Holiday shopping or grab a bite to eat at one of our many great restaurants in the downtown area.
