We just enjoyed our 3rd annual weekend church retreat and the Abbey and staff once again exceeded our expectations. The rooms, though old, are beautifully updated and very comfortable. The food was delicious and the wait staff were very kind and accommodating. I'm sure we'll be back again next year.

Winter get away with the girls. Focused on spa treatments and use of spa amenities. Of the five us only I had a massage (aroma therapy) and the others had pedicures. Only one was not pleased and it was due to a particular staff person, not the spa. Our rooms had spa robes and footwear and it is not unusual... More

We had a great girls spa weekend at the Abbey. We spend a day at the spa and it was a luxurious retreat from our cold Midwestern winter. The rooms are decorated with a nautical theme and are bright, comfortable and beautiful. This is our 1oth year coming to the Abbey and we always have a wonderful time.

Was here for a business meeting and couldn't have been happier. Great food at both the Waterfront restaurant and 240 . The room was older (I believe the hotel was built in the 60's, but very clean and updated. In fact, the bed was one of the more comfortable I've had the pleasure to sleep on. The service was above...

This was my first time going to this resort and the only sad part was leaving. My girlfriend and I travel every New Year to celebrate in a memorable fashion and the Abbey Resort did not fail us. We did plan on going skiing in Lake Geneva but the weather did not allow it. Instead we spent more time together... More

We started 5 years ago for a mutual significant birthday and have returned every year since because we have such a great visit. We have fish fry on Friday night, spend the day at the spa in the pool, on the chaises reading and visiting. For dinner we go to the buffet and enjoy the crab legs and other delicious... More

We stayed at the Abbey a couple of weekends ago. They have nicely updated the hotel rooms and SPA. I was glad to see that the SPA still had all of the great amenities that i remember from previous trips. The food on the other hand, was less than okay. We had the SEA TALE FRIDAYS at 240 West, and... More

My whole family stays at The Abbey for a night or two each summer. We've never had a bad time. There is something at the resort for every age. There is an outdoor pool with a slide and volleyball net, a kiddie pool, and hot tub. Also, an indoor pool. There is a little food stand out there where you... More

This was the second time at Abbey Resort, first time was just me and my wife, second was with the family and both times I had a great time. The room was a bit small for a family. Next time I would love to stay in one of the villa's.

This place was nicer than I anticipated. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. The people were nice and friendly too. There were a TON of kids there since it was over winter break, which is not what I was looking for at a "resort." If you're a family looking for a place to stay, this would be a great... More
