My wife and I stayed at the Abby for a weekend getaway and rented a boat slip and brought our boat. It was really nice to pull it up to the slip after being out on the sandbar all day and go straight up to our room. The slip, parking, and launch fee @ $75 is kind of high but... More

I was married about a month ago and, while my reception was at another venue, I booked a block of rooms at the Abbey. My new husband and I also stayed there the night of our wedding. They could not have been more helpful, professional and kind with their services for our wedding! Claire took excellent care of us in... More

Some friends told us about the Abbey when we asked them about a place to go to get away. The Abbey is a very large establishment and it seems that there are a lot of families that go there regularly--as one would go to their lake house during the summer. Lots of kids! The layout of the hotel was very... More

We went here for a friend's wedding and stayed 4 nights. I can't begin to say how disappointing the food there was- it was just terrible for what is supposedly an upmarket resort. i guess all the guests eat out if they can. The facilities are good, but there were no kids activities on in the mornings- although it said... More

We just returned from the Abbey Resort. We have been to Lake Geneva on several occasions and will not be back to this particular hotel. We were first impressed at the beautiful grounds of the resort. Our room seemed to be very clean and impressive. We had a room facing the lake. We were in a room a few minutes... More

We had such a nice time at the Abbey. We had two rooms on the pool side. We got there about 3 hours before check-in, but we were able to get into one room right away, and by the time we finshed lunch, the other room was ready. It is an older resort, but it is very well maintained. The... More

Stayed at The Abbey for a quick getaway before my kids start school & had a great time. Beautiful property that is well maintained & tons to do for families. The only downfall was our service at the Waterfront Restaurant. The server was extremely rude, short with my kids & seemed genuinely bothered to be there. Food was alright but... More

Pool area is very nice and love the convenience of walking out of room and into pool area. Have not yet used the spa, but fitness... More
