About The French Country Inn

Situated about an hour from Milwaukee and 90 minutes from Chicago, The French Country Inn is a quaint, historic hotel located just off Highway 50 in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Intimate accommodations overlooking Lake Como along with nice touches are what guests can expect during their stay.

Each of the 33 rooms feature serene interiors with simple furnishings and a calm colour palette. All have TVs and either a balcony or patio overlooking the lake, while some feature fireplaces, whirlpools and ceiling fans.

The French Country Inn features manicured grounds, an outdoor pool and a space called the 1880s room that has an oak staircase and floors that were showcased in the 1893 Columbian exposition World’s Fair.

Mornings begin with a complimentary breakfast served in an inviting dining room.

The property is close to shopping and attractions such as the Tristan Crist Magic Theatre and the Geneva Lake shore path.

Negative Reviews

Needs Some Work

While the accommodations are clean and well maintained, guests have said that the exterior of the property needs to be upgraded and repaired. Some felt that the place has been neglected, as they have noticed certain things such as weeds, old paint and worn outdoor furniture, among others.

Inattention to Detail

Annoyed guests couldn't help but notice little details such as the phone not working, not enough pillows and burned out light bulbs during their stay. Others have commented that they didn't like that they had to use the Wi-Fi in the lobby.

Just Continental Breakfast

Travelers expecting a huge spreading during the free daily breakfast will be highly disappointed. Apparently, the inn only serves basic continental breakfast and people expect more to eat in the morning.
