Yes probably the closest to where you want to go is the launch ramp at the extreme north west corner of the lake (used to be the old Chamber of Commerce bldg). There is a lot there to park your vehicle north of the ramp. The Ramada is right nearby and the Hampton is across the road to the west. I've been to both and I actually prefer the Microtel on Hamilton Street (Route 5 and 20) about a mile and a half or so from the launch ramp (but straight up the road). Nice accomodations, less expensive than the others and nice folks to deal with. If foe some reason you are unable or don't desire to use that ramp there is the State Park just down the main road about a mile or so and there is a launch ramp there. You might want to check first to make sure it is clear of any ice there and in the canal connected to it to access the lake. When  launch from the first mentioned ramp  just go due south right there on the west side of the lake (where you'll be) and proceed about a mile or so and you'll see the Belhurst Castle Restaurant (big beautiful brownish stone facade up on the hill) to the west ...continue just past it near the Geneva Country Club and you'll see a water treatment plant set back in from the lakefront. That bay is Glass Factory Bay. If you decide to use the State Park launch just head out to the channel and hang a right toward the lake go out and between the two piers and shoot across the lake (about 1 1/2 miles or so) at about the 11 O'clock position straight across the lake and you'll be right at Glass Factory Bay.  Good luck! Hard to say with the water clarity the way it is now but you may want to fish a little deeper than usual  but it drops off to pretty deep water straight out from there so stay inside the drop offs :)

The closest ramp to Glass Factory Bay is at Roys Marina. A four minute boat ride to the north will put you in the Bay. There is a fee to launch there, I believe it is $5.00. The guy who runs the marina, Larry is a great source of knowledge about the lake and where to find the fish.  

 

 

All of the places Sk8man mentioned to stay are great.
