Description of the Fontana vacation home rental
This is a 4000 sq. ft. home on two wooded acres with 120 feet of lakefront at the Fontana end of Lake Geneva. The private pier has a covered boat lift, and is complemented by a large swim raft and buoy for an additional boat.

The house was styled after William Wordsworth's home in the Lake Country of England. It has been in the family since it was built in 1905. The interior is Midwest Prairie architecture with beamed ceilings spanning the Great Room and spacious dining room. The Great Room features two sitting areas, a large fireplace, and an HDTV home theatre. The adjoining outdoor porch affords stunning views of the lake and is filled with comfortable wicker furniture, including a porch swing and dining table.

The house has a large, fully appointed kitchen with modern appliances, a double oven, microwave oven, 28 cu. ft. side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, plus breakfast table in a sitting area with two easy chairs, oversized desk, cable TV, and Franklin fireplace. Off the kitchen there is a butler's pantry with wet bar, a powder room, a utility room with washer and dryer, and an outdoor multi-burner gas grill on the back patio.

The house is fully air conditioned.

The upstairs has six bedrooms that sleep 13, and three full baths. Three bedrooms overlook the lake, one with a king and two with queen-size beds. The other three bedrooms view our private woods and have twins or a double bed.

The upstairs hallway is an open sitting area with large screen cable TV, DVD, VCR and handsome fireplace. The space also contains a desk area with computer, high speed internet, and wireless connection for the entire house.
