Geneva on the lake wineries
Geneva-on-the-lake is a very popular summer destination in Ohio, though it provides lots of fun year-round. It has a history of over 150 years! Geneva-on-the-lake can be described as a “strip” of fun. In the summer it is beaming with activity. People flock to the area to visit the shops, food, bars, activities, and wineries.
There are currently two wineries that fit the category of “Geneva On The Lake Wineries.” These two wineries are at opposite ends of “the strip.” While there are only two wineries in this small area, there are 20+ wineries within only a few miles!

Tips for Wineries in Geneva Ohio
With the current world situation, remember that many places of business including many wineries in Geneva Ohio are taking extra precautionary measures. When it comes to visiting the wineries in Geneva Ohio be sure to:
- Check the hours. Hours of operation may vary during this time. Check their websites or social media for specifics on when they are open.
- Visit during off-peak times. After checking the hours/days of open operation, plan your visit for a weekday when it will be less crowded.
- Bring a mask. We have visited many of the wineries listed above before and during this time. It was mixed on whether masks were needed. It truly depended on the place. So be prepared and bring one. Many places will require masks unless actively eating or drinking.
- Be responsible. That goes without saying, you are an adult if you visit and partake at the wineries in Geneva Ohio. Be sure to be responsible. There are wine limos available if you plan ahead.
Lodging When Visiting Wineries in Geneva Ohio
There are lots of housing options in and around Geneva Ohio. You can opt to stay at the Lodge, a bed and breakfast, hotels, cottage rentals, campgrounds, Airbnb, and VRBO options.
You can also stay at the Lakehouse Inn. We have visited the winery here several times and the spa but haven’t stayed overnight here. We do plan to at some point. The Lakehouse Inn offers Inn Rooms, Cottages, and a Beach House. We are excited to see that during the Winter of 2021 into 2022 some of the Inn rooms are under construction and updating.
Adjacent to the bed and breakfast building you will find the three cottages that are available to rent. Each cottage has two bedrooms, a bathroom, a mini kitchenette, and a stone patio. The Lakehouse Inn also offers rental of their Beach House. This is perfect for honeymoons or romantic getaways.
Fun Wine Fact:
- Grapes are the most planted food in the world!
If AirBnb or VRBO’s are more your speed, I would suggest you check out this rental in Geneva. We have not stayed there but we did stay at their other property in nearby Madison Ohio. Looking for a space to spread out? We highly recommend this rental (VOT Verified) in Madison, Ohio. It was clean and the hosts were perfect!
Another favorite and VOT Verified Property you could stay at while visiting the Wineries in Geneva Ohio is Laurello Premium Vacation Rentals. Name sound familiar? Yes, it's the same as Laurello Winery! They have three properties located at the heart of the Grand River Valley wine region, which is perfect for staying overnight for a wine weekend!
They also have four properties located within walking distance of the strip at Geneva On The Lake. We have personally stayed at a rental right next door to Laurello Winery. It was a nice-sized house and fit three couples well. You can't beat the location! To find out more about the rentals, visit here.
Fun Wine Fact:
A ton of grapes can be turned into 720 bottles of wine!
There is The Lodge at Geneva on the Lake. This is VOT Verified, though we do not have the post completed for this. We have stayed at the lodge twice and the cottages at the lodge once. To say, we were NOT impressed with the service and accommodations for the price would be an understatement.
The most recent visit was in late 2021 when we stayed in a cottage. The cottage was extremely worn down, very well-used, and not well-maintained. At first glance, the unit looked fairly clean but upon deeper inspection, it was not clean at all. I am unsure if this was a fluke, but I would not stay there again.
We have stayed in the rooms at the lodge twice over the last decade. The rooms were clean but very outdated for the price point. The inside of the lodge is updated and beautiful. We have eaten at the lodge restaurant several times. Each breakfast we had was wonderful. The recent dinner in late 2021 was a bad experience.
While there is a shortage of workers in many places, there were more workers/servers standing around than full tables. But we had to walk up to the group to ask to have our order taken after sitting there for a half hour with menus. Once the food was brought, it was mediocre. The server never came back to check anything, we had to approach the group once again to ask for the check.
More Fun Wine Facts:
- Centuries ago, people drank wine instead of water to quench their thirst!
- In early Roman times, women were forbidden to drink wine. If they were caught in the act by their hubby, he was within his right to deal with her however he saw fit!
- Apparently, there are people who have a fear of wine…it is called “Oenophobia”! It's true: Wiki Source
