About

Spanning the entire west side of Lake Como, our venues bring the best of both worlds. Geneva National’s exquisite scenery sets the stage for an enchanting outdoor ceremony, brilliantly pre-empted by cocktails on the resort’s lawns. Step into a romantic tented pavilion for the reception, or create a matchless milieu within the gracious Clubhouse event spaces – all of which boast panoramic lakeshore and fairway views. The Ridge Hotel rests upon a lush lawn overlooking a wooded shoreline and features picturesque indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception sites.

    Perfect place for our big day

    We chose Geneva National for our wedding based on the amazing people that work there, the gorgeous location, and the reasonable price. Our day did not disappoint in any way. Jillian, our coordinator, was amazing and answered all of my emails quickly and thoroughly. The staff was so kind and helpful to guests and the location was incredible. Even when we had some major hiccups they adjusted in a calm and reassuring way. I am so glad we chose Geneva National and can't wait to go back every year to celebrate our anniversaries.

    Best venue ever!

    Geneva National was the first venue we looked at 2 weeks after getting engaged and I was sure that this was the right one for us! My now husband fell in love too but convinced me that we definitely should look at some other options. I reluctantly went to look at the other options but could not stop thinking about Geneva National the entire time. Finally, after looking at two other venues in Lake Geneva and showing our parents this venue, we were sold! Our wedding was exactly 1 month ago and we are still over the moon with how everything went. We rented out all of the spaces because we anticipated a large guest count (ended up with 250) and wanted space flexibility. We utilized the Legends room for the bridal suite and getting ready in the morning and then our cocktail hour at night! This room is so beautiful with its exposed brick and panoramic views. We utilized the Grand Ballroom for our dinner and reception and placed a "mini" dance floor for our first dances. Then, just adjacent to the ballroom is the Lake Geneva room where we set up a massive dance floor and risers for the band! We also hung bistro lights over the dance floor and it made for such an incredible ambiance. Through the next set of adjacent doors, you walk into the lounge that we utilized for our dessert station and late night snacks! We did the premium smores bar which was a huge hit! There is also a giant permanent bar in there that people loved! The staff at Geneva National were nothing short of AMAZING. Pam was an awesome wedding coordinator! Pam never said no, every single request we made she figured out some way to accommodate. I don't think there are many venues that you can say that about! Even with the few hiccups and miscommunications we did have, everything got sorted out in a professional manner and we are so unbelievably thrilled with our decision to chose GN for our big day. It was the best day of our lives and we wish we could relive it 100x over! If you made it to the end of this incredibly lengthy review, I hope you've already made the decision to book Geneva National because you won't be disappointed! Wishing you future brides and grooms the most perfect day!
