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.

Thank you for saving a part of Wisconsin's history!!

Thank you for your support!

This is so awesome! Please protect as much land as possible!

Yes, kudos to you!

Scott Madlener, a descendant of Conrad and Catharina Seipp paid us a visit in June and brought us several Seipp artifacts that we didn't have, including three hard to find Seipp beer bottles.

Scott is relocating to Switzerland and thought of us as he downsizes before the big move!
