Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Fontana-on-Geneva Lake

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

The rental rate includes the fees payable to the Abbey Springs Association for access to all of their recreational amenities (except golf which has separate green fees) described in the paragraphs below. Although the living space is all on one floor, the home is NOT handicap accessible. You must climb the basement stairs or outside deck stairs to access the main living space. However, the side entrance to the home has only three stairs.

This cozy family friendly home has all you need for a Lake Geneva getaway. It is across the street from the lake and nestled in a luxury-gated golf community better known as Abbey Springs. You can spend your time at the private beach, dining at 2 of the resort restaurants, swim in the indoor pool, relax in the hot tub, play a round of golf, head into Lake Geneva to shop or drive around the lake to enjoy the beautiful fall colors.

The home has 3 full bedrooms and 2 full baths. Each room comfortably sleeps 2 guests and there is a pull-out queen sofa bed in the living room. The great room is spacious with cathedral ceilings and a stone fireplace. The balcony doors open to an extra wide wrap-around deck where you can relax with friends in the sun or cook steaks on the Weber charcoal grill. The home is built for families or for a getaway with friends with many options at your fingertips.

Fall is a great time at Abbey Springs. The air is clear and crisp, and the leaves begin to show their spectacular color! Here are some great events happening in the nearby area:

This year they are offering a, “Santa Cruise,” from Thanksgiving through New Years.

The home in Abbey Springs is about a 5-10 minute walk to the Clubhouse or Golf Pro Shop. It's also a quick walk across the street to the private beach and Yacht Club Restaurant.

Abbey Springs features an indoor pool, an award winning scenic golf course, 2 restaurants, fitness center, racquet ball, tennis, bocce ball, volleyball, basketball and private beach access to the lake.

The home is located 1.5 miles from downtown Fontana and 8.5 miles from downtown Lake Geneva. In Fontana you can rent a speed boat or pontoon (as long as the fall weather permits), hang out on the dock of Chuck's Lakeshore Inn and Gordy's Bar & Grill or spend time at the public beach. Downtown Lake Geneva (15-20 minutes) is home to terrific restaurants and antique shopping. There is also a public lake-shore path that you can access from the Abbey Springs’ private beach to enjoy the beautiful homes and lake views.

The cabin in the woods was cozy, clean, and comfy.

  • 5 of 5

We loved having fires in the fireplace. Watching our favorite movies on the big screen tv. Cooking our turkey dinner was super easy with lots of counter space and fully stocked kitchen. The beds were very comfortable and everything was very clean. We also enjoyed the huge pool and pool table at the club house. Great Thanksgiving Retreat!

My girlfriends and I really enjoyed staying here. It was quiet, cozy, and relaxing. The pool and hot tub were great, the fall leaves were amazing, and the restaurants nearby had great food. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Absolutely wonderful!! The house has an open design that is great for families.

  • 5 of 5

Close to the lake which is so clean! Nice playground at the beach. The house was clean and Mary left out so much information about the surrounding area that it is a breeze to get around. We are already planning our next trip. We were up the weekend of October 28th and the colors were beautiful!

Hospitality Plus

Thank you for allowing us to rent your house for our stay in Abbey Springs. We used the house as a base for wedding preparations for our daughter with the wedding down by the lake and the reception in the golf course club house. All sites were with in walking distance of the house. The whole weekend was great with beautiful weather and great accommodations.

All interactions with Abbey Springs personnel were fantastic. This includes restaurant personnel, grounds personnel for the outdoor wedding, the guards at the entry way, all the banquet hall staff and even the recreation and pool staff. We used every thing the association had to offer.

We also stayed a few extra days to tour around the lake and the house was very convenient to all area locations.

I would recommend this rental for any small group / family wanting to have a get away to a fun location with all the amenities the house provides over a hotel stay.

Sister Get Away

  • 4 of 5

House is clean and roomy. Five women had a fun time and enjoyed the spacious living area. Mary, the owner is friendly and answered all my questions. One of my sisters suggested the mattress on the trundle bed be replaced.

The area is quiet and nesteled in a woodsy environment. While we did not take advantage of the pools or beach it was nice to know they we available.

I would recommend the rental to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely comments! Whether it's a sister, friend or family get-away, it's great to spend time together and enjoy the home and it's surroundings. We will look at the single beds and address replacing them. Thanks, again.

Great single family home in Abbey Springs

  • 4 of 5

There really are not a lot of single family homes in Abbey Springs to rent, so if that is what you want then this is it. First off is I believe Mary goes out of her way to make sure the description of the property and its amenities are accurate, so as long as you read the description of everything you know exactly what you are getting. The location in Abbey Springs is great because you are close to everything and an easy walk to the clubhouse or beach (weather permitting) and the huge deck in the front of the house (as opposed to the back or side) really is nice you can see people coming and going and have plenty of room for everyone. Mary also made sure the house is well furnished and has all of the notes necessary to make sure you know what everything is and how to use everything in the house. In addition, the bathrooms are beautifully remodeled and the open kitchen and island are fantastic.

My only knocks on the property aren't really knocks, more so that you know what you are getting. First is like I said there are not a lot of single family homes to rent in Abbey Springs, but if you look on VBRO and are looking to rent in Abbey Springs, this is going to be on the high side of the cost of the rental compared to other people -- one because it is a single family home and second because most of the other people renting do not do it through Abbey Springs which makes it more expensive since they are paying the association. The second part of that is that most of the others that do not rent through Abbey Springs include use of a golf cart, which does make it easier to get around and does give you easier access over at the beach (if you are not an owner you cannot park a car at the beach so you need to either walk or drop people off and then bring your car back).

Owner's Response: I am happy you enjoyed all of the amenities both at my property and in the Abbey Springs community! Just to comment on golf cart rentals, we have chosen not to own a golf cart. We are lucky to be conveniently located to all of the amenities. The Abbey Springs Association has many rules that they provide to unit owners. #10 under Golf Carts, Motor Scooters and Mopeds is: Policy for Golf Cart rentals is that only unit owners are allowed to register golf carts for use on property. Also, here is clarification on the beach parking. Abbey Springs wanted to provide more green and beach space for individuals to enjoy. It is true that renters are not allowed to park at the beach. I provide this information in my Rental Agreement. However, all unit owners are limited to two (2) parking stickers for beach parking. So not all unit owners can park at the beach.
