Take a Cruise to the Victorian Summer Retreat of a Chicago Beer Baron

Black Point Estate was built for Chicago Beer Baron Conrad Seipp in 1888 as a retreat, and in that spirit the home remains a place to relax, refresh, and explore. Just like the Victorian VIPs who established the estate, you’ll arrive in style and enjoy stunning Geneva Lake views on your cruise to this magnificent mansion, considered one of the finest examples of period architecture and furniture in the Midwest, and one of the oldest homes in Lake Geneva.

This photograph from the late 1930s shows our lovely dining room table fully extended to seat more than 30 people.

We don't know for certain what the occasion was, but it sure looks like a wonderful celebration!
