“Wonderful Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

My partner and I stayed on a Friday night for a last minute getaway. I travel for business so it was nice to getaway by car from Chicago up to Delavan. I love the town and its only an hour and a half from Chicago via 94. The lodge was packed with families, couples, wedding parties, and business people. There is just about ever hung to do there as far as activities. The rooms were cozy with a lodge feel. Private porch with rocking chairs. My partner and I were lucky enough to catch a gorgeous sunset followed by a heat lighting storm. The lake is at your feet with plenty of ways to enjoy it. We will be back.

Nice property overall. The room was great, but had an odd odor to the room and every time the air conditioner kicked in the smell became more apparent. If you plan to rent a boat, make sure and reserve ahead of time. There are only 5 or 6 boats to rent. Overall, I would say if you do not plan to take advantage of the resort activities, the $300 plus a night will probably not be worth it. I appreciated the various dining options on property, which had a nice variety of price points. The staff throughout the resort were very friendly. It seems it would be a perfect place for groups traveling. I noticed a lot of large groups and family reunions. The grounds were kept very clean.

I spent a lot of time online deciding where to stay in the Lake Geneva area and settled on Lake Lawn for a few reasons, one of them being they had availability and a lot of other places didn't. I understand the property had been very run down and now has new owners and they've done a lot to improve it. Their staff is extremely friendly, I noticed that nearly every time we passed an employee, no matter what kind of employee, we were greeted. We had a problem upon checkin with the bathroom not being as clean as it should have been. I went to the front desk and asked to speak to a manager, Gene , front desk assistant manager came out. He handled the situation perfectly, just as I would have (I'm an innkeeper). He made no excuses, he simply listened, followed us back to our room, took a quick inspection, made notes and then made it right. I was impressed. Any property that large is going to have an occasional problem, it's how they handle it that makes the difference. We ate at the Frontier restaurant twice and weren't impressed either time, but the Lookout Bar was very good for lunch. I would definitely return to Lake Lawn and recommend it to others.

I used to visit Lake Lawn as a child. Have seen it decline over the years but super happy to report the property looks great. Amenities, staff, food, updates...all were great. Was there during the July 4th week and the place was busy. Great to see! Want to go back.

Great place to spend a day or a week. Very relaxing. Views are exceptional!! Room was very accommodating and clean. Great food and wonderful staff. Love the history of the property. So much to do for every age. Prices are very reasonable for being right on the lake. Every amenity you could ask for in a total vacation package.

Room Tip: Almost all the rooms have a view of the lake. So peaceful. Rocking chairs on the patio are great!!

Awesome resort. Staff is very friendly. Clean, comfortable room with nice updated bathroom. Rocking chairs on patio are awesome! A lot of activities for the whole family. Entire property is very clean and well maintained.

Room Tip: Shorewood East is very close to the pool and all rooms have a lake view! Would recommend Shorewood...
