We stayed here for a family reunion. The resort offers activities for every age range, from the pool and arcade for kids to the bar and spa for adults. We stayed on the second floor of building 5 looking out over the pools. Our bed was comfortable, the room was relatively spacious, and the bathroom was nicely equipped. Our covered...

Went Tuesday-Thursday and had the bed and breakfast which gave us $15 each a day for breakfast. Very few other guests, which we LOVED, the food was good, the colors just starting to change, and the spa was the BEST!!!

Having daytime and evening bar and restaurants on site, the Abbey was convenient. Their staff was very accommodating, and we requested a room change due to a damp rug near the air conditioner. If you are traveling with friends or family, there's areas on harbor side for you to hang out and visit near fire pits.

This is without question, a beautiful, scenic spot. The grounds are kept well and the staff quite agreeable. The on-site restaurants are however, average at best. During warm weather, they crank out about 4-5 weddings a day on weekends. Unless you are part of the wedding party, request a room AWAY from the group! Made the mistake our first night...

A accompanied my boyfriend on a business trip, that was held here. An older hotel, clean and the rooms were a nice size. Had a fridge and microwave in the room which is very nice and a little balcony area outside the room with chairs. The room was a little worn looking and could use updating.

Hotel is located away from the big city. You almost feel like you are lost while driving to the hotel, until Lake Geneva appears out of no where. Hotel is steps from the water. It is a large expansive resort. I had a room in building 6, which takes quite a hike to get to the lobby, restaurant and convention...

This is a mixed review - we stayed here several days so I got to know the place. The grounds are spectacular - lovely reception building, nicely maintained grass, lots of areas to walk around the resort, plus it's right on the lake. There are many amenities - pools for children and adults (indoor and outdoor), hot tub, bike rentals,...

My husband and I recently celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary with a weekend trip to the place where we honeymooned so long ago. The Abbey has been renovated three times since we were there in 1979. The place is beautiful. The rooms are very nice with comfortable bed...a must!
