We just came back from a weekend away at the Abbey. It was our first time there. The resort is very nice, which we noticed upon check-in. There were nice fireplaces in the lobby with cozy couches. However,there was a very strong chlorine smell upon entering and the lobby and halls were very cold. The room was nicely decorated and... More

The Abbey is a great way to relax and unwind with the family for a weekend. The staff is incredibly pleasant and accommodating. The facility is a little dated, but I think that it is part of the charm and helps make for the relaxing atmosphere. The food is plentiful and affordable. There is no price gouging to be had... More

Cant say enough about this resort. Our weekend getaway was perfect. From a comfy bed to a beautiful heated indoor pool, this place knows how to please. There was always a kind "Hello" from every employee and a nice conversation from the bartender. Cant wait to return in the summer!

Our family and another family did a post-Christmas overnight at the Abbey Resort. We've wanted to start investigating Geneva Lake-area accommodations and this place delivered! The Abbey is a very nice mix of being both a classic, family friendly and one that tries to keep up with the times. Rooms were nicely appointed and beds were comfortable. Kids loved the... More

I took my boyfriend to the Abbey for our Anniversary in January. We are both from Chicago and in our mid-twenties. Since it was the off season, I did not expect many people to be there, but to my surprise, there were! While staying at the resort, we went to the Fontana Grill, the Helm, and the Lakefront. Our service... More

My wife and I had a very comfortable stay at the Abbey. It was very cold out side but it was nice and warm in our room. We had stayed there many year ago for a conference and we were pleased that the remodeled room looked so nice. We enjoyed it enough to want to stay at the Abbey again.
