As part owner of the company, Sam supports and oversees all aspects of the GLV operation. Her short-term rental journey began when a local real estate agent and friend recommended that she convert her family-owned property in downtown Lake Geneva into a vacation rental, and she hasn’t looked back since. Not long after, she had expanded her portfolio significantly and earned the sought after “Super Host” designation on Airbnb, driven by her excellent guest communication skills and attention to detail. Best known in Lake Geneva as the mastermind behind the magazine-featured “Main Street Glamping Loft”, her creativity shines in giving dilapidated spaces new life for Lake Geneva tourists to enjoy. In her free time, Sam can be found anchored in the middle of Geneva Lake or walking the shore path. Feel free to reach out to Sam with any general concerns, or just to say hi!
Patrick recently became a great addition to the team as general manager. Coming from an environmental compliance laboratory as their operations manager, he has over 15 years of management experience and he oversees all day-to-day operations here at Geneva Lakes Vacations.

Marshall joined the company in early 2021 following a merger between GLV and Geneva Lakes Property Consulting, which he was formerly running with his sister, Samantha. He has since taken over the property acquisition segment of the business and is the first point of contact to teach prospective owners about our company. He then walks them through the various steps of converting their second or investment home into a short-term rental. Having knowledge of area licensing requirements goes hand-in-hand with this, as he is tasked with making sure all rentals in the GLV program are fully compliant on a yearly basis. Marshall’s other job duty revolves around rate-setting and ongoing revenue analysis for units under management. He lives here in Lake Geneva and enjoys watching the Cubs, snowboarding and grilling out with his friends. For any questions pertaining to pricing or licensing, he will be your go-to contact.
