“Lifted our hopes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We had been to Lake Lawn a couple years prior to this visit and it was obvious that the resort was struggling. Although it wasn't that we had any negative experience, it was just that the hotel was empty- bars, restaurants, everything. Shortly after, the resort had closed it's doors.

Upon hearing that Lake Lawn reopened, we decided to give it another try. This time, we booked the weekend romance package that included dinner, a bottle of wine, champagne, strawberries, and two nights accommodations. Dinner at the Frontier was amazing; the best meal we've had in years! With our package, we were able to order anything on the menu with no restrictions which surprised us. The dining experience couldn't have been better! We'll be returning just for dinner again.

The rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful. Overall, we were happy with our stay and will most definitely be returning again.

The thing I love most about Lake Lawn Resort is the far away from home atmosphere that greets me everytime I go. Truth be told, I only live maybe 10 minutes away.... but I feel like I am hours away from the minute I get there. I love the rustic lodge decor and peaceful lake setting. The resort has 3 different restaurants, which is awesome, because you don't have to leave! The indoor pool is nice and warm and just the right depth for my children to swim in. The Staff is warm and always accommodating. We stayed in an amazing loft suite with it's own fireplace, two queen beds and a bathroom on the lower level, and twin beds in the loft area with it's own bathroom and TV. Awesome for families!!!! They have great rates most of the time, which makes it easy to come back often. And I do. It's the perfect getaway.

Room Tip: Watch for Specials! The rooms in the Normandy Building are the biggest.

I'd go back in a heartbeat. The staff are friendly, the rooms are yummy, and the ambiance is Prairie-style elegant. There are shops and a large grocery near by. This is the perfect retreat. The microwave and refrigerator are a plus, too.

Room Tip: All the rooms have therapy tubs. Add a little hot water as you soak and enjoy to keep the heat level...

We've been visiting Lake Lawn since I was a child. They have made changes and updates, keeping current with the times. Still a lovely family experience. The updated bathrooms were especially nice. Our room was comfy. Everything is connected through walkways, so getting to the dining areas is easy; no coats needed in colder weather. The grounds are beautiful. We relaxed this trip, but there are nearby activities for every season and interest.

Lake Lawn had nice rooms, lovely views, comfortable beds. It was a nice place to meet from across the country. The pool area was nice and central to most rooms. We really enjoyed our stay, and the suite with the loft was very spacious.

Room Tip: Had a lovely wine and cheese welcome on Friday night.

We have been going to Lake Lawn since our honeymoon 37 years ago! It's a beautiful property. We tend to go off season, as appreciate less crowds. Delavan Lake, and the town of Delavan, don't have as much 'action' as Lake Geneva, only 10 minutes away, but there still is plenty to do; the resort's location is good, and you can't beat the lake views. Staff has been friendly and accommodating during our stays.

Room Tip: Shorewood East & West and Norwood rooms are all lakeside; Timber & Boulder are not. Reserva...

I had never stayed at the Lake Lawn before, and wasn't sure what to expect. The rooms were very nicely renovated, and the fixtures in our room were high end. The bathrooms were especially nice. We stayed in a loft room. It was spacious and comfortable. I was nice to be able to get dinner and watch live entertainment right at the resort. With the way everything is connected, it was especially convenient in November to not have to go back outside or carry a jacket around. They still had bonfires going on, although we didn't go out for it. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. The food at the Lookout Bar and Eatery was very good and reasonably priced. Considering the rate I paid for the room, I was very impressed with the amenities. Good value, and a great place to stay.
