With Gilded Age mansions and Queen Anne-style houses, you’d be forgiven for thinking Lake Geneva was tucked away in a New England cape. This relaxing resort city, in between Chicago and Milwaukee, is an easy escape that you and your pet will love. The green spaces, lakeside restaurants and friendly locals welcome dogs to enjoy the lakeside with their humans. So, get your tail wagging for a four-legged family getaway at these pet-friendly hotels near Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, bookable on Culture Trip.

The historic Maxwell Mansion is the lake house you’ve dreamed about. Old-world sophistication adorns each room, from the curtains and chandeliers to the French doors and soaking tubs. The mansion itself is limited to six rooms, spoiling you with privacy and an effortless two-block walk to Lake Geneva. Which suite named after a famous author should you choose for your dog? Only the Virginia Woof room, of course.

The Ridge Hotel

You and your dog will both be drooling at the fairway views from your suite at the Ridge Hotel. Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Lee Trevino designed Geneva National’s 54 holes, and though Fido can’t be your caddy, he will be able to chase a few balls during a doggie day care stay at the Dog Spot nearby. Tear yourself away from the 19th hole and instead celebrate breaking par with a paddleboard adventure for the two of you on the lake.

You won’t have trouble convincing your sleepy schnauzer to spend their weekend napping at the Lazy Cloud Lodge. They’ll sleepwalk back and forth from the cool private patio to the warm fireplace at least a dozen times, while you and your partner keep each other company with a bottle of champagne, bedside chocolates and scented bubble bath in the two-person whirlpool. Pop open a bag of plain popcorn and toss your pupper a few kernels anytime they stir from their slumber.

A straight shot down Highway 120 will zip you from Quality Inn & Suites right to Lake Geneva. Wake up early for coffee and a to-go breakfast, sharing those sausage links with your doggo, of course. After a day trotting around Lake Geneva’s dog-friendly parks and restaurant patios, you can spend an hour unwinding in the indoor hot tub while your pup settles down beside your suite’s fireplace. The East Troy Dog Park is a five-minute drive away if you two need a lazy day away from the lake.

    Treat your pup to a lakeside and riverside getaway at the Ironworks Hotel in Beloit. They might not appreciate the spa-like bathroom, plush robes and minibar, but they’ll certainly not whine about the double-sided fireplace in the Legacy Suite. They may also wag their tail a bit if you sneak back a few fatty pieces of ribeye from Merrill & Houston’s Steak Joint beside the lobby. You can also treat them to evening walks along the Rock River or in Horace White Park after a day spent splashing together in Lake Geneva.
