About the property

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:

There’s no better way to see the changing colors of fall than a boat cruise. Lake Geneva Cruise Line will be offering daily tours up through Sunday, November 6, 2016.

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.

Really cozy cottage - and plenty big!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great cottage if you are going to be with a group and want to hang together.

The TV can be on... a blazing fire... and games at the table. The kitchen counter is huge so group cooking is easy. The appliances are good. Even gas cooktop. That's a bonus.

Very convenient to the West Side of Lake Geneva and all the restaurants over there. My guests loved being able to swim and hang in the hot tub at the Club. Extra big bonus.

perfect vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property during the Christmas weekend. The house was clean and well equipped with whatever you might need from cookwares to furniture, etc.

Mary was so kind and even let us stay an extra half day. I would definitely recommend this vacation house.

Owner's Response: The holidays are a special time. I am very happy that your group enjoyed the weekend! Making sure the property has all the amenities is important to me along with having a little extra time to linger, if the season allows.

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!
