An interview with Dave Sekeres, general manager at Lake Lawn Resort.
Q: What makes Lake Lawn Resort stand out among your local competition?
A: The Geneva Lakes area is rich with recreational options, but there is only one Lake Lawn Resort. For 140 years we have been delighting guests with our two miles of private lake frontage, and 200 wooded acres with a champion golf course overlooking it, plus, a myriad of on-site options for dining, activities and entertainment.
If you're going to come to Wisconsin, there are a few musts: you must play in, or on, a lake, you must eat a fish fry or prime rib dinner, and you must golf or attend a 'fest' of some kind.
Lake Lawn Resort offers it all. On-site golf course, full service spa, shopping, 165-slip marina, water sports rentals, live entertainment, bonfires, recreation, business center, a variety of room options -- even bikes for the miles of paths (or ice skates and snow shoes if you visit us in the winter)!
It isn't just that we offer these things -- it's the quality of the things we offer.
Q: Tell us about the awards you have won.
A: Our casual dining restaurant, the Lookout Bar & Eatery, won Best Fish Fry in Walworth County. Our championship Majestic Oaks Golf Course won Best Golf Course in Walworth County.
Our Calladora Spa won Best Spa, and our resort overall won Best Resort in Walworth County.
We did all this in the same year -- 2017! The best part of this award is that is was voted on by the public -- the actual people who will come here to stay, to dine, and to play. It means something.
We also won awards for our prime rib, our fine dining, our music festival and so much more. Each month of the year we have events planned for our guests and public alike, so there is always something fun to do -- from live music festivals to antique car shows, from dueling pianos to comedians.
Q: What compliments do your meeting clients/guests most often say about Lake Lawn Resort?
A: Group clients and guests compliment us most on the intangible -- their experience here.
Guests don't just come for one event for a few hours on a given day and time. Anyone can make those couple of hours shine. What we do is provide a rich environment around that event.
Some enjoy strolls on the lakefront (or Jet Skis, kayaks, and boat rentals for those who want more), a round of golf, or a great workout.
Others partake of an amazing massage followed with fine dining. Still others just enjoy sitting by a bonfire (or fireplace) and taking in the beautiful views. At Lake Lawn Resort, guests are out making memories. That is what makes people come back and rave about their stay.
Q: If you were a client looking for a venue to hold an event, why would you choose Lake Lawn Resort?
A: That is easy. I would choose Lake Lawn Resort because our event and group professionals allow you, the planner or bride, to actually enjoy your stay. Our experts will work with you to get all of the details arranged, so that by the time your special day arrives, you can simply focus on being a great host. We handle the details so that you can focus on your group.
At Lake Lawn Resort we help you create memories that will last a lifetime. We're the resort that makes focusing on your experience our No. 1 priority. We've been voted the Best in Walworth County for a reason.
