Need information on Fred "Fritz" and Olga Schmidt

In the 1930s and '40s this couple, perhaps along with their daughter Erma, owned a small resort and tavern on the shores of Lake Como. Would anyone happen to know the name of this resort or tavern? I sent an email to the Walworth C. Historical Society but haven't received a reply. I haven't been able to trace this family since the 1930 census when they were living in Chicago.

Mars Restaurant & Resort (was known as Mars Bar and Resort)
W4098 S. Shore Dr.
Lake Geneva, WI 53147

Located on Lake Como. History of this place goes back to ABOUT the 1920s. The inside picture is taken at the piano bar. The two people pictured are Olga b/w photo and Irma color photo. The picture with the two houses in it was their house in Chicago. The one on the left is their's. It is most likely that the bar and resort were sold before Irma's birth. The ownership had changed many times by the early 1990s.
