YOUR Wisconsin WINTER getaway

Spend Christmas In
Lake Geneva

The health, safety, and well-being of our guests, associates and community is always a top priority. Due to COVID-19 related safety guidelines and recommendations from health officials, attendance at this year's Christmas in the Country Illumination Ceremony and the Trolley Tour of Lights will be limited to resort guests only. Local residents and the community are invited to experience the Gingerbread House Walk and indoor holiday decorations Sunday-Thursday through the holiday season. 

Celebrating special occasions and creating memories with the Lake Geneva community is a treasured experience for the entire Grand Geneva team. This was a difficult decision but is the safest course in this delicate time. We thank the community for its support and understanding.

If you're looking for a winter getaway this holiday season or holiday activities to create traditions for the whole family, plan your stay at Grand Geneva Resort & Spa. Every year, the holidays come to life during our annual Christmas in the Country celebration. Gaze at more than two million Christmas lights, indoors and out, including our family-favorite 12 days of Christmas drive-through light show. Enjoy a variety of activities, from Breakfast with Santa, trolley tours and more. The six-week-long picture-perfect holiday celebration welcomes resort guests to share in the festive holiday spirit.

In addition to all of our on-site activities, there is an abundance of Christmas activities in the Lake Geneva area. Pick up your last-minute gifts at local shops and create a new tradition with the family!
