The Ridge Hotel is not your stereotypical Lake Geneva lodge. Just off the beaten tourist track, The Ridge Hotel is the ideal base camp for your Lake Geneva visit. Many of our guests are content to simply hunker down here — starting with that morning cup of Colectivo coffee from bean + vine to an eclectic dining experience at our Wine Spectator award-winning Crafted Americana and a Wisco shoreline sunset on our veranda. At The Ridge, we’re putting out that vibe that makes you wish you could linger just a few more days … and then some.
Hope to see you all there!!
