I spent several evenings searching for just the right place for a small get-away for our 26th anniversary, and finally settled on the Abbey Resort and Spa. It was a great choice as we experience great service, a very clean and nicely appointed room, and peace and quiet. We were not looking for tons of activities, just a restful stay.... More

Perfect weather always makes for a good weekend but the Abbey Resort made it special with a bonfires, s'mores, caramel apples, a pool glow night and much more. Easy access to Geneva Lake and the walking trail was awesome. Nice on site restaurants and cozy rooms.

We stayed for an onsite wedding. The customer service was fantastic. We were there at the start of off season. The staff opened the day care area whenever we asked so my 5 year old could play. They gave her access to art supplies and games. All the arcade games worked which pleased our 11 year old. Also the dining... More

Spent a night there for a wedding and had a great time. The location is on the water with a marina and the grounds are beautiful. Although the outdoor pools were closed for the season, they have a good size one indoors. The room was clean and had a nautical decor to it. Bed was very comfortable too. I really... More

Spent 4 days 3 nights here. Never had a problem with anything! Service was great, food that was provided was very excellent selection. One of my top selections for hotels now in southern Wisconsin. The only down fall is they shut down the outside pools at 7pm :(

We stayed at this hotel over the summer with friends. We had a great time. It is right on the water (if you are bringing a boat they have easy parking and boat lauching), and has beautiful views. The rooms were comfortable but not huge. The bathrooms were large, updated and clean. Comfortable beds too. The main bar & grill... More

A most memorable and enjoyable weekend. The spa, the room, the restaurants were all top-notch. We will be going back as soon as possible. If you are using the spa, ask for a room near the spa. It is quiet and you are able to go to and from the spa very easily.
