According to Sean Skellie, a vice president with IDM Hospitality Management, the group that has been managing the hotel since 2015, diners' are seeking out more upscale experiences and menu items, but still want a “casual and inviting” atmosphere.
In the release, Skellie said the renovated restaurant would offer “fine dining but not fussy dining,” with an evening menu showcasing fresh seafood and steaks as well as an extensive wine cellar.
The redesigned floor plan will feature seating areas that allow for more unobstructed views of the lake, he said.
Skellie said there has also been a discussion of continued food and wine dinners as well as other culinary events hosted monthly at the restaurant.
A private dining area and renovated banquet spaces are also included in the construction plan, ideal for small meetings and intimate dinner gatherings and corporate events.
The Geneva Inn has 37 guestrooms.
The resort is located on the southeast shore of Geneva Lake. It was built in 1990 on the same spot where a lodge or resort has stood since 1883. The resort has been owned by the same family for 25 years.
