“Nice to revisit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I have been coming here since I was a child. We were there for New years Eve weekend and had a good time. The room was very clean and nice. I had requested a lake view but instead ended up with a room facing the parking lot. I feel like the customer service needs some improvement. The food was great but it took a long time to get served in the Frontier Restaurant. We waited 20 minutes to get a beer.For some reason there was no hot water for half a day. We had very early risers above us. Also very disapointing was the fact we could not get a later check out even though we offered to pay for it. I was glad to see a full house and hope business continues to be good. I would just like to see some tweeks made.I also spoke with the manager over some of my concerns and she was very undertsanding and apologetic. We will definetly visit for another weekend and hope for better results! The spa was wonderful and I will be back there for sure. the fire places are cozy and warm and we loved drinking coffee here with a great lake view.

Room Tip: I would ask for a higher floor with a lake or courtyard view.

LOVE this place! There is a reason why people have been visiting here for many years with their families! The double queen loft rooms are awesome! 2 queen beds on lower level with 2 beds in loft area and 2 bathrooms all in one room!! You cannot get better than that when you have 5 children!!

Room Tip: queen loft rooms are perfect for groups or large families!!

I have been staying at Lake Lawn for about 15 years now. Between the friendly staff, the clean rooms and resort, excellent food at the Frontier Dining Room and a truly wondeful relaxing spa you can't go wrong. With Lake Lawn being right outside Lake Geneva it is a great value yet your away from the tourist area of Lake Geneva. Lake Lawn sits on Lake Delavan and is a quiet resort. We have never had issues and always leave feeling happy and satisfied with were our money just went. Most favorite thing I love is that the resort is all connected in an oval type of shape, with huge windows overlooking Lake Delavan. Never feels like your in one of the chain hotels with no windows. You must visit!

Room Tip: Upon making your reservation ask to have a room that has a view of the courtyard or the lake. Otherw...

Our family of 5 loved this place...spacious rooms, lots of activities, friendly & helpful staff. Also, my daughter is a wheelchair user and the whole place is very wheelchair friendly. All the various buildings are connected by window-lined walkways so we never had to go outside to navigate the vast resort.

Room Tip: Take a look at the choices and find one that fits your family's needs. We liked the room with th...

We had a great stay just prior to Christmas. The restuarants are good and the updates are done very well. The pool looks the same as when I was a kid, but with updates. I do wish they left the Great Room open, though. The one bedroom suite with kitchen and fireplace was great. Nice to have two full baths as well.

Our family has been coming to Lake Lawn for 40+ years, through many changes and lean years. Just finished our 20th Christmas stay and am so happy to say the magic is back! We always stay in Norwood (suite and other rooms.) Rooms were beautifully updated a couple years ago with rustic accents and keeping the cedar beams. Menu choices have been reworked with new flavors for the classics while adding innovative new items like a shrimp po' boy that was outstanding (Lookout Bar.) Staff could not have been more attentive, from check in to waitstaff to mgmt. Every person made us feel welcome and did whatever they could to insure our stay was perfect. Would definitely recommend for a Christmas getaway with your extended family. The outdoor decor provided a great holiday backdrop and was magically lit at night, stunning along the lakefront. Always something for everyone within the family to do, no matter what age. Best part is having so many cozy places to hang out, play games, relax, enjoy a lovely beverage and each other's company.

Room Tip: We always get a suite as home base plus extra rooms when the extended family comes. Suite fireplace...

I can't say enough about this place every time we come here the stay is perfect. My wife & I come every summer and every December 21st which is our anniversary. Our last stay 12/21/12 we rented out a room in the new lakewood section of the resort. These rooms were just completely redone and completed about a month ago. I think we were one of the first guests in our room. We rented a lakewood king upon my arrival at the front desk they told me I was upgraded to a king suite. Thank you Lawn Lawn!!! We were blown away when we entered the suite Lake Lawn did a spectacular job refurbishing these rooms, the colors, the furniture, the bath rooms everything is top notch the whole place even the hallways look awesome. If you are ever in Delavan or Lake Geneva stay here and reserve the lake wood building you won't be disappointed! If you can come in December the whole resort is decorated for Christmas inside and out it is spectacular! The massive fireplaces are impressive too. Another nice thing is when you check in they give you a brochure filled with great info on all the activities, restaurants, happy hours that are going on during your stay we just loved that! If you can come on a Friday 4:30-6:30 complimentary wine, cheeses & sausages for guests that was great! We highly recommend this resort this is why we come here for our anniversary ever December 21st.
