This was a favorite for a long weekend getaway. The Abbey is well situated on Lake Geneva. So scenic. However, we stopped our visits because the resort became run down. Many years later, we return. The remodel is beautiful. Our room was harbor-view...and well worth the extra money. We had two queen beds...very comfy..The view of the harbor from our...

Had a really nice time at the Abbey. Very quiet and stayed in the room with the harbor view and king bed. Everyone there was nice and helpful and also in the restaurants the waitresses were very helpful. Would stay there again. If you are looking for a place with more things to do in town go to Lake Geneva....

I have stayed at the Abbey Resort several times. The resort overall is nice. I have not had much opportunity to utilize any of the outdoor amenities at the resort as the weather has not cooperated when I was there. The rooms are nice for the most part. They include a refrigerator which is very nice for storing drinks, etc....

I have trouble giving this place a high mark. Although it is a beautiful setting and the service is outstanding it was built in the 50's and is not suitable for disabled persons. Example, the main ballroom is only accessible via 2 flights of stairs. There is an elevator(slowest in Wis.) but you need a staff member to take you...

We stayed at the Abbey Resort with our teens while attending a business conference. There was plenty to keep the kids occupied (pools, arcade, board games, and free WiFi) during the day while we were in meetings. There were even bonfires in the evening. The food was delicious and the scenery and grounds were beautiful! Loved every minute of our...

We chose not to spend the extra 20 to be lakefront but liked our room in Bldg 3. It was ground level and opened to a nice patch of lawn. This resort looks like it linked several buildings so you do have to get your bearings. It no way, however, did it feel like a maze and we never got...

This place is AWESOME!!! My mom and I went mid week for three days. We spent our time in the spa, spa pool, playing board games and watching movies in the mini theater. It was a "no screens" mom and me getaway. We are returning in June for another few days.

The rooms were perfect and the view was great, the staff very friendly. Lori in the spa was my favorite. The gift shop was nice. We had two rooms that looked over the pool area. I can't wait to come back in the summer and enjoy the outside activities.
