My wife and just returned home from a great two-night stay at Baker House. We hadn't been to Lake Geneva in many years, so I checked in with Tripadvisor and found that Baker House was the well-deserved number one place to stay. The B&B is housed in a beautifully restored 19th century mansion on the shores of Lake Geneva and walking distance to town. The owner-host, as well as the staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. Each morning a delicious breakfast of hot coffee, juice, assorted fresh fruit and fantastic croissants were delivered to our room. On the second evening we had dinner in their first floor restaurant, which is open to the public. The food was outstanding. They have a great wine list with many available by the glass. All in all, we had a wonderful and relaxing stay and would return in a heartbeat. Note: Baker House opened for business less than a year ago, which partly explains why there are not that many reviews posted. I think another reason is because the owner did not ask, hint or otherwise request us to make a review on Tripadvisor, which at other inns has become an all too common request of us.
