Beautiful resort location for a relaxing,wedding and reception getaway, on far west end of Lake Geneva, Wis. Have your walking shoes. Sprawling resort with plenty of rooms and activities. Room where comfy with wonderful beds, baths and room amenities. Even glass glasses and glass coffee cups. No styrofoam. The food at the reception was average at best. The next morning... More

The rooms are very charming, with a real resort feel, like vacation. But the blinds in my room did not do much to keep out the morning sun so it's good that I could not sleep in. The wifi was hit or miss--good the first couple of days and then no luck. The layout is rather confusing--I heard numerous people... More

We stayed 3 nights (on a Groupon) and had a great time. I will certainly plan on going back with the kids again next year. The pros: -Families everywhere so I didn't ever feel bad when one of mine made loud noises or squealed. -Concierge was very friendly, helpful and was able to help us get a discount on a... More

This place totally reminded me of Dirty Dancing. There is something for everyone: pool; golf; dining; shopping, etc. There are two pools - one for families and one for adults. We stayed here because we participated in 150 mile bike ride over three days for the Lung Association. The Abbey was a great hotel for rest and relaxation after our... More

We recently stayed for four nights to celebrate a wedding. This resort is a great way to enjoy Lake Geneva without the crowds and traffic of downtown. The town of Fontana is small with only a couple of shops and small cafés, not the shopping that is found in town. A water taxi across the lake would be a great... More

Our room was ok....except for the ceiling stain that kept crumbling on to air vent blowing it around. I hope that it is nothing dangerous. Bathroom fan crazy loud, and lights stay on in courtyard all night long. ***Beds were awesomely comfy.*** Front desk not overly friendly. ***GORDY's boat rental guys were great.*** I might come back again but would...

My husband and I had our reception at the Abbey Resort in Fontana last summer. My husband's family has been boating in Lake Geneva for many years and the Abbey holds a special place in his heart.

The Abbey is a classic hotel with all the amenities you would expect to find in a Wisconsin Resort on a lake. First, you cant beat Lake Geneva for its beautiful homes, crisp clean water and atmosphere of fun. Just like a true resort, the food is good but takes forever to get. The good news is there is always... More

Positives: staff (except front desk) very good; food average; location nice. Negatives: caulk in shower was black with mold; decor from the sixties and seemingly not updated since; shower head sprayed everywhere but on me; bathroom fan sounded like jet taxiing; wooden blinds did little to block the light; nothing to do after dark.

Beautiful resort with friendly and helpful staff aside from Tony at the front desk. She was completely rude and unsympathetic about our 2.5 wait to check-in and insisted it wasn't because of our groupon. The fact that we watched plenty of guests come in after us and get their rooms well before us, makes me wonder. One night was just... More
