Reasons to Love Living in Williams Bay

Williams Bay has everything: closeness to the gorgeous southern Wisconsin landscape, exciting local activities and entertainment and distance from the hustle and bustle of the city with the added comforts of nearby shops and restaurants. With so many great options, Gerstad Builders was pleased to select Williams Bay as the location of our Bailey Estates community.

Edgewater Park - Williams BayWilliams Bay’s crown jewel is its proximity to Geneva Lake. Showcasing over 5,000 acres of a glittering lake, the area is home to exciting attractions such as Big Foot Beach State Park, the Lake Geneva Yacht Club, Aurora University’s George William’s College campus, the Yerkes Observatory, the Wonder Lake Water Show Ski Team’s frequent performances and events there and much more.

Several shops and restaurants populate the lake’s borders, including Pier 290, Cafe Calamari, Daddy Maxwell’s, Harpoon Willies and the Garden Plaza Shopping Center. Lakefront parks provide a tranquil place to enjoy the natural surroundings, including Edgewater Park, Duck Pond Recreation Area, Oak Grove Park and Walnut Grove Park.

In addition to these delightful places to visit, Williams Bay is an involved, close-knit community that hosts several community events year-round. These include tree plantings, reading programs, movie showings, tours, youth camps, holiday celebrations and more.
