About Chrissie

We are a family of 5 and have been going up to Lake Geneva for many years. Our 3 boys love swimming in one of the cleanest lakes around. We are creating many great memories with our kids.

Chrissie purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Chrissie chose Fontana-on-Geneva Lake

After years of 'going to the lake' we like our location the best since it can be quiet and nestled in nature while only steps away from all the action. We are walking distance to all of the fun!

What makes this townhome unique

Our town home is very spacious allowing everyone to spread out and relax. The bunk bed room is a kids haven with a large flat screen tv with Netflix and You Tube, surround sound, Blueray DVD, Bluetooth ready to play music from your Apple device and Playstation. Our main Family room has a 55 inch flat screen, Surround Sound, Blueray DVD and Netflix. Our pool has a nature view and is rarely crowded.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lake stay made easy!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice, relaxing visit to the lake. The property has a pool right across the street, quick (walkable) access to The Abbey and Abbey Harbor. The beach in Fontana is walkable and if you have ton of stuff the rental includes parking and beach passes. We felt so taken care of and it made our trip (with children!) very easy and fun! We would definitely stay here again and again!

This is our second year here and we absolutely loved it. Chrissie is a very responsive owner!

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Lake Geneva for over 40 years and it is an outstanding family focused vacation area. This home is an ideal choice as it walk to the beach, to Fontana and to The Abbey. The pool is a huge benefit as we have two your grand children. We also like sitting around the pool and reading. It's a very nice area. The home is modern and well appointed. Chrissie really wants to make sure that our week is great.

The home is pristine and ideally located

  • 5 of 5

This house is in immaculate condition, perfectly located in Abbey Ridge a short walk to the Abbey Harbor. Chrissie, the owner is very responsive and dedicated to making sure that her renters have everything they need for a comfortable stay. Great sleeping areas, bathrooms, kitchen space. Nice deck with a private backyard view for morning coffee. We stayed the 4th of July week, are very familiar with the area and really enjoyed everything about the house and location. The pool is a great amenity for some downtime from the buzz of Lake Geneva/Fontana. Highly recommended, well worth the 5 stars. We appreciated the attention to detail, cleanliness, everything functioning nicely and up to date interior. Keep up the good work Chrissie, we will be back!

Abbey Townhouse 404

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful well maintained townhouse with easy access to Fontana Beach and the Abbey resort. Everything we could possibly need was there. The pool for the townhouses was right across the street. Owner was very accommodating and easy to reach. Definately a place I would rent again!

Relaxing fun for the family!

  • 5 of 5

We spent five nights with family and friends enjoying this terrific property. We walked to the beach, we walked the shore path. We walked to The Abbey and coffee shops. We were able to grill and eat in with seating for everyone. The kitchen is very well equipped. And everyone fought over the chaise lounge. It is so comfy. What fun to swim in the pool and watch the deer eating just beyond the fence. The birds were all so helpful gobbling up mosquitos. We all hope to be back next summer. Thanks.
