We stay at the Abbey several times each year. It's less than an hour from our house and we enjoy a quick getaway. The staff is excellent. The rooms are cute and well appointed. The pool areas are great.

We were here for an organized one day retreat and extended our stay for another night. There were a couple of large groups here on a Friday night to Saturday afternoon and Saturday/Sunday had some families. It is a large facility, with plenty to do inside on a November weekend. We even enjoyed a Ping pong and air hockey game...

My husband and I stayed at the Abbey a few weekends ago and we wanted to stay somewhere different outside of Lake Geneva but close enough to town. The Abbey we have heard of by a few friends and they always said how nice it was. The hotel and grounds are very beautiful and impressive! We didn't get to explore...

I was at the Abbey on business. The resort was very clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay there again and on a personal trip as well. Although I didn't dine in any of the restaurants, the food for our event was very good.

Just returned from a family wedding at this beautiful resort. It was simply fabulous! The grounds are stunning, even in later fall, with autumn flowers still in bloom. Public areas were decorated for the season and were exceptionally clean and well kept. The massive fireplace and hearth in the main lobby was a popular gathering spot and was warm and...

For an older resort, this is fairly well maintained. Dining is average. Service is average. Really enjoyed the Tai Chi session in the health spa led by Marla though!
