My Story

From her grandfather sharing his love of the lake with her dad, who would grow up to spend his nights dancing in the Riviera ballroom, to her own kids challenging each other to be ‘first in for the season’, Lake Geneva has captivated Karen’s family for generations!

Karen has now realized her dream of moving to Geneva Lake – her “happy place” since childhood. Karen enjoys walking the shore path with her dogs, boating on the crystal clear waters of Geneva Lake, and selling real estate with Melges Real Estate in Lake Geneva.

Episode 16: Dedicated to the Children of Tomorrow: Harold Friestad and Danielle Simons Explain the Immeasurable Significance of the 231 Acre Kishwauketoe Nature Conservancy

In 1989 the Village of Williams Bay purchased this beautiful natural area on Geneva Lake. It has been a place for all to enjoy without any taxpayer money. All donations are always appreciated for the ongoing efforts and programs to keep KNC the pride of the community.
