Side Trips from Chicago Restaurants


Baker House Restaurant

Baker House Restaurant Review

Dine amid the historic elegance of this immaculately preserved 1885 home and get a sense of Lake Geneva's summer home heyday. But far from feeling stuffy and outdated, you'll be seated for lounge-y dining in wing-backed chairs and velvety couches for a menu of small plates (the lump crab cakes are a must); sharable fondue; sliders; charcuterie, and selections of Wisconsin artisan cheese. In addition to the restaurant, the 17,000-square-foot, 30-room Nationally Registered Historic Property serves as a luxury inn, so feel free to have that second martini or weekly changing craft beer.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
