Bella Vista Upscale Ice Fishing

Bella Vista Suites invites guests to try a new approach to a classic cold weather activity with their exclusive Ice Shanty Package.  There is no need to sacrifice luxury for the ice fishing experience with Bella Vista’s deluxe “shanty” amenities.  The package includes deluxe accommodations at Bella Vista Suites and a day of ice fishing in a deluxe shanty, with equipment, bait, heaters, opening of holes, transportation to and from location included.  Guests can expect upscale comforts as they enjoy a complimentary six-pack of Wisconsin beer, bottle of wine, or champagne in the fully furnished ice shanty.  Deluxe shanties can accommodate up to 4 adults.  Each child must be accompanied by an adult.


For inexperienced ice fishers or those who want the experience without all the work, guided services can be provided for an additional $35 per person, for up to 6 hours.  Additional time may be arranged, price based upon added hours.  The guide will provide assistance with equipment set-up, technique, and line retrieval before closing the holes.  Arrangements can be made for fish cleaning.  For those that are not as lucky to catch their own meal, Simple Café, located in downtown Lake Geneva, offers catered breakfast or lunch to guests of the Upscale Shanty Package. 


Geneva Lake Bait & Tackle, Inc. offers professional ice fishing equipment including an extensive selection of over 80,000 ice jigs and lures, and expert services along Delavan, Geneva, and other surrounding lakes.  Shanties can accommodate two to fourteen people.  Standard shanties can be rented for less, upon request.  All rentals are based on ice conditions and availability.   License not included, but can be purchased at Geneva Lake Bait & Tackle, Inc. 


Guests can enjoy many other winter activities in Lake Geneva, such as cross-country skiing, sledding, and snowboarding along the trails and hills of the Big Foot State Park.  Fantasy Hills Ranch offers sleigh rides with a bon fire afterwards.  Geneva Lake Bait & Tackle also sells snowmobiling passes, for guests who own their own snowmobile.  For more information on the Ice Fishing Shanty Package and other activities in Lake Geneva, please visit
