“Good, but stay in season”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Renovation is excellent. Facilities are beautiful. Site is exceptional. During season, there's lots of wonderful things to do. Off season, it's dull and sleepy. Lots of facilities are closed, and the only restaurant is extremely expensive. Heating is poor, but cooling is fine. The only complaint in the single rooms is amazingly thin walls that let you hear quiet coughing in the next room.

Room Tip: Select lake-facing. If you have children, get a family suite, which has lots of space and is quiet.

Been coming here for years! Great moderate resort. Beautiful grounds and decent restaurants.
The indoor pool is pretty standard but in the summer, the outdoor pool offers drinks and food and a gorgeous lake view.
The standard rooms are small, if you are going with more that one child, upgrade to a suite or loft room.
Plenty to do for two to three nights or so in the summer, one to two in the winter.
New Year's Eve party and band were awesome!
Great family resort only two hours from Chicago.

My family and I just returned from a one night mini-getaway at Lake Lawn Resort. I wish we could have stayed for 2 nights but unfortunately our schedule would not allow for it. I chose this resort not only because it is beautiful and relaxing but also because it is only an hour and a half from Chicago. Since we were only able to stay one night I did not want to spend a lot of time and energy commuting to and from the resort.

We arrived at the resort at 4 pm (check in time) and had an excellent and efficient check-in process. The room was ready for us so we parked our car, unloaded, had a quick bite at Culver's (across the street from the resort) and headed off to the indoor pool. The pool area is very nice and clean and has a fireplace at one end of the pool area that makes it feel warm and cozy. My only issue was the fact that the pool seemed really chlorinated and between the warm moist air, chlorine and lack of air flow I was having some trouble with my eyes burning from the chemicals in the air. I could not stay by the pool area for more than about 40 minutes without feeling miserable.

Our room was spacious and clean with a lodge like decor and had a nice view of Lake Delavan. The room comes with a microwave, coffee maker and refrigerator which are all essential items for us. Everything was well maintained and worked in the room.

My kids enjoyed the whirlpool bathtub in the room and had a nice bubble bath after their swim. My daughter and husband also really liked the workout facilities and were very happy with the equipment.

Overall, Lake Lawn Resort is a very nice place to spend a couple of nights for a relaxing getaway. I may go back with my husband or friends and take advantage of the resort spa.

We loved the resort and were happy with our stay. Five families stayed over night and the parents and children had a blast. Everything was clean and the resort was laid out well. We would like to come back again in the summer.

The rooms were nice, but the Spa was even nicely - My husband and I had a couples message and it was great and so relaxing. I would recommend if you stay at the resort please visit the spa.
We had room service and the baked French onion soup was great. Room service for breakfast and that was good also.

Room Tip: Ask for the second floor.

My husband and I stayed at the Lake Lawn Resort for one night in January. We booked our stay through Groupon and were very pleased with the resort. The entire resort was very clean and the staff were all attentive and friendly. We stayed in Timber Lodge in a king room. We loved the many fireplaces with comfortable sitting areas throughout the resort. The resort was still decorated beautifully for Christmas. The only negative is that we would have liked to stay longer!

My husband has been visiting here since he was a kid and we've been going since we met over 20 years ago. Our kids love it, too! Very family-friendly, clean, right on the lake, great staff, nice rooms, a lot to do. A few of our favorite things: kids being able to find their way around easily due to the connected enclosed walkways, finding an open table to play games at all day, comfy and relaxed feeling. We are looking forward to a summer stay this year. Highly recommended.
