The four seasons in Lake Geneva are a sight to see, and autumn is a favorite for this local business. Here are five reasons you’ll “fall” in love with Harbor Shores Hotel.
First and foremost, this property has a location that cannot be beat. Situated in the heart of downtown, this charming lakefront hotel is just steps away from the shores of Geneva Lake. Harbor Shores also has 5,300 square feet of newly remodeled banquet and meeting space, including complimentary parking and it’s within walking distance to most local restaurants and area attractions, making it a convenient choice for your next function.
Next, you’ll find the panoramic lakefront views of this five-story hotel to be breathtaking, featuring well-appointed guest rooms, many with private balconies offering picturesque sunset views over the majestic waters. “The view is outstanding…a peaceful, serene vantage point that always makes you want to come back,” former guest Harry R. commented on TripAdvisor, wrapping up his feedback with: “Always a very nice stay!”
Another reason to fall in love with Harbor Shores, is the staff. Tammie Carstensen states: “I love my staff. My average staff member has been here over 10 years, so they are more like family.” Carstensen is the general manager, who has been with the property 22 years. The employees consider themselves as a great team dedicated to customer service, offering a warm and welcoming hospitality experience, which shows by the praise documented in guest reviews.
The property’s partnerships with local businesses enable packages to be created by offering unique additions to rooms including a variety of dining certificates, couple’s massages, bottles of wine and champagne, boat tours, floral arrangements and more! On select Fridays, Harbor Shores has been presenting Sip & Sample events for their guests featuring complimentary sips of their signature wine and free local samples from area businesses.
In addition to these partnerships, Harbor Shores is proud to host and support local events. Carstensen expresses her love for Lake Geneva, “I want to see us just expand exponentially when it comes to tourism.” Carstensen added “I think we’ve got a great product, we’ve got a great community and I think we’ve all got enough to share.” Winterfest’s Soup Night is one of Harbor Shore’s favorite hosted events where the public is invited to enjoy family fun entertainment and a variety of soups provided by local and area restaurants. To participate, monetary and/or nonperishable donations are collected for the local food pantry. Among other sponsorships and events, Harbor Shores is also honored to be an Angel Sponsor and supporter of the Santa Cause. “It is heartwarming to see the community come together to put on the beautiful Tree Festival display in honor of The Charities of Christmas,” says Shelley Strohm, marketing director.
No matter the time of year, the Geneva Lakes area offers a variety of things to see, do and participate in. So, whether you choose to relax or explore… you are sure to enjoy your stay at Harbor Shores.
