It’s situated on a scenic 90-acre plot on the western shores of Geneva Lake.
There are several onsite restaurants; try the steak at Fontana Grill or barbecue at The Waterfront.
You can pamper yourself with massages, facials, body wraps, and aromatherapy at the onsite Avani Spa, a 35,000-square-foot facility equipped with a fitness center. The spa is recently renovated, featuring a women's locker room with showers, bathrooms, steam and inhalation rooms, and makeup stations.
The chic guest rooms come with beamed or vaulted ceilings, high-definition flat-screen TVs, and patios or balconies.
Guests are in good company: The Abbey Resort has welcomed Presidents Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, and George H. W. Bush, as well as Michael Jordan and Oprah Winfrey.
The resort features an indoor pool, two outdoor pools (open seasonally), one of which is adults only, a children's arcade, an ice-skating rink (open seasonally), live entertainment on weekends, and onsite family activities.
Spring break activities March 22 through April 21; with boat and bike rentals (open seasonally; subject to weather), scavenger and easter egg hunts, live entertainment, and other family activities.
On the other side of the lake, downtown Lake Geneva has boutiques and cafés.
Note: the indoor pool is part of the onsite spa. To access this pool, guests must pay an entrance fee or purchase a $50 spa service.
Lake Geneva, Wisconsin: Lakeside Mansions and Historical Museums
Located within 90 miles of Chicago, Milwaukee, and Madison, Lake Geneva has become one of the Midwest’s most popular destinations for recreation. Geneva Lake—a gaping gulf of fresh water ripe for swimming, leisurely sails, water skiing, and tubing—is the resort town’s biggest draw in the summer. Admire the scenery by taking a stroll on the Geneva Lake Shore Path, a 21-mile walkway planned by early settlers that stretches around the entire lake. Along the way, you’ll pass expansive gardens and the opulent estates that helped the town earn the nickname “Newport of the West.”
In spring, outdoor activities include cruises on Lake Geneva, canopy tours, boating, and walks along the lake paths. There's also plenty to do indoors. The Geneva Lake Museum takes visitors back in time with re-created late 19th- and early 20th-century shops, and the 1897-era Yerkes Observatory is home to the world's largest refracting telescope.
