“Winter Resort Convert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

As a displaced southerner, the idea of a Winter getaway in Wisconsin seemed perverse; I now see the appeal. The staff were great. There were lots of fun activities, and the spa was stellar. I would recommend making spa appointments early.

I have been coming to Lake Lawn since I was a child. My parents came here for their honeymoon and now we are sharing it with our family and friends. It's always a great time and the new owners are really making changes. All of the staff that we came in contact with were friendly and helpful if needed. When you are walking around the resort, you will always see staff cleaning, vacuming or working on something - really shows that everyone is taking pride in the resort. The rooms are great and a loft or loft suite gives you extra room that you can really appreciate. Not having to go outside when the weather is bad is a plus. The restaurants are really good and there is something for everyone. The pool and game room kept everyone happy as well! :) Can't wait to come back next month with the Girls for a spa weekend!

My husband and I booked a standard room in the Lakewood Lodge at it was very affordable. To our surprise, we were upgraded to a suite! It was amazing! Lakewood suite had a whirlpool tub, living room with fireplace, separate bedroom and a kitchenette. It was a very romantic setting. Since we had everything in our suite, we didn't plan on leaving the room during our stay. We planned on ordering room service but unfortunately, was unable to do so. On Tuesday, Jan 22nd, we tried calling room service for over an hour to order breakfast and no one answered. Later we found out that they did not have a room service person scheduled during the morning. Very disappointing considering the temperature that day was -5 degrees and we were forced to go out for food.

Lakewood lodge is separate from the main building which made it difficult to explore the hotel, especially during the winter months. I hope one day that they find a way to connect Lakewood to the main hotel.

Location is great also. Across the street was a 24hr Walmart, Chili's, Starbucks, Domino's Pizza and many other restuarants.

All in all it was a great stay due to the suite upgrade. Whoever checked us in on Monday, Jan 21st, we appreciate you! We will definitely return when the weather warms up and will definitely book the suite. I just hope that room service will be operable by that point.

Room Tip: The hotel is near I-43/50. About 90 minutes from Lombard, IL. Expect to drive 15 minutes to see...

Resort served us gal pals quite nicely for the weekend getaway. Comfy rooms, good food and friendly attentive staff. Photos on website accurately reflect resort. It's not your parents' LLL nor that of several years ago. Go back and pleasantly rediscover a nice place to go so close to Chicagoland.

Room Tip: Lake side rooms nice, expecially the double queen with the loft.

Been coming to Lake Lawn for many years. This sprawling resort in a wooded area along Lake Delavan makes for a relaxing setting. Nice for a family or couple get-a-way. The recent upgrades have made the place more comfortable and welcoming. Food and bar areas are very nice with good lake views. Staff makes an effort to be accomodating. New ownership is trying hard.

Room Tip: Shorewood East has nice size rooms, plus loft rooms and are closest to the pool. Shorewood West and...

We were looking forward to returning to Lake Lawn, but their lack of customer service won't have us returning ever again. We stayed in November and had a good experience. We looked into staying again and inquired about rooms and availability for a January stay a month prior. I was told that the rooms were only available for 2 night stays and that I could be put on a waiting list. I could not understand why such a thing existed especially in a non prime time month such as January. I place several calls to the management and left messages sharing my dissatisfaction. No one ever return my calls. However, as to add insult to injury, someone from reservations called a day before we planned on staying there, to tell us a room was available. Really? Well needless to say we told them they could keep their room and we would not return. Honestly you would think this was the Bellagio. No wait- we would have had better service there!

Drove up for an overnight stay at the end of the kids' Christmas break. The lodge was quite festive with holiday decorations. The lodge is a series of buildings connected with passages from one to the other, which allows you to roam around comfortably while viewing the grounds or Lake Delavan. We found it quite enjoyable.

Lake Lawn has a nice, sizable indoor pool (82 degrees) with a hot tub nearby. The kids loved the pool. There are a couple restaurants on site. One is a burgers and pizza type of place, the other is more upscale. There is also an arcade and an ice-cream shop that doubles as a breakfast spot.

Our room was in the newer Lakeside building, which was the only building that required us to walk outside to get to the main complex. This building has an outdoor pool (for warmer weather) and we stayed in a loft, which was quite large, with two twin beds and a tv up in the loft space, which the kids thought was great. The room was clean and nicely decorated, had a mini-fridge and a nice bathroom.

We plan to return sometime soon.
