Take A Lake Geneva Boat Ride To An Isolated Wisconsin Mansion That’s An 1800s Time Capsule

When Chicago beer baron Conrad Seipp built his vacation home on Geneva Lake, he wanted it to be a true getaway. No expense was spared, except one: a driveway. Seipp insisted that this would be a place that could only be reached by boat. Today, you can follow in his wake and discover a place that’s virtually unchanged from the 1800s. Here’s how you can float your way to this time capsule of a vacation retreat, Black Point Estate.
