MEET THE TEAM

Samantha Strenger

Co-Owner/Managing Partner

Sam is the creator of Lake Geneva’s famous Main Street Glamping Loft (yes, you can rent it!) and co-owner of GLV. Sam oversees all GLV operations and loves designing one-of-a-kind rental spaces for guests to enjoy. She owns a portfolio of rental properties, and has many years of management under her belt, which makes her a valuable resource for property owners considering a rental opportunity. She loves that her team members collaborate to handle anything that comes their way! When she’s not working, you can find her playing golf, anchored in the middle of the lake, or hiking along the shore path. She enjoys the busy summer season, but appreciates the transition between summer and fall, when the hustle and bustle slows and she can be outside enjoying the weather. Sam recommends Brunch at the Getaway on Lake Como, and Friday Night Fish Fry at Mars or Hawks View. Don’t forget the cheese curds from Flat Iron Tap!

Tom Keefe

Co-Owner

As a life-long resident of the area, Tom loves working with other business owners and locals to create unforgettable guest experiences . Tom spent many years with Keefe Vacation Rentals before partnering with Sam to establish Geneva Lakes Vacations. Tom is a member of the Visit Lake Geneva Board, highlighting his appreciation for the area, visitors, and local businesses. When asked what he loves most about GLV, he’s proud that GLV creates an avenue that allows families to continue ownership of multigenerational properties by renting them out part time, and still allowing them the enjoyment of ownership whenever they want. Tom lives in Williams Bay with his wife, Kat, and their twin daughters. They love to ski in the winter and enjoy the lake life year round. Tom loves the energy of summertime, but also treasures the new growth of spring. There’s nothing quite like spring after a Wisconsin winter! Tom recommends Larducci’s, Next Door Pub, and Little Bar for pizza, and Sopra, Holi Cannoli, Jonathan’s, Fire2Fork, Sabai Sabai and Cafe Calamari for date night.
