Overview

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 3 of the resort restaurants, swim in either the indoor or outdoor pool, relax in the hot tub, play a round of golf or head into Lake Geneva to shop.

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.

The home 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 Abbey Springs’ private beach and marina.

Abbey Springs features 2 pools, an award winning scenic golf course, 3 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, 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.

Perfect weekend getaway destination!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 6 just loved this house in the Abbey Springs community. The house itself is spacious, very nicely updated, with a kitchen stocked with most everything you would need to prepare either a simple or an elegant meal. Perfect for enjoying a group meal. Another bonus of this property is the area it's situated on -- somewhat wooded, with gently rolling terrain, so you get a decent workout just taking your dog for the AM/PM walks! A 15-or 20-minute drive to downtown Lake Geneva, and all the shopping, restaurants, etc., and other attractions the community offers. Didn't make it to the Abbey Springs gym/pool; will save that for next time. Kudos to our hostess for the thoughtful preparation, good communication before our visit, and clear instructions about where to find everything!

Great property and visit.

  • 5 of 5

My 7 girlfriends and I stayed at this property and we really enjoyed our visit. The property was clean and had a lot of cooking aides that we did not expect. It was very spacious yet cozy. We definitely will consider coming back to this Abbey Springs property in the future.

Clean and bright and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful girls weekend. The house was just as it was described. It was a very bright and cozy setting. Close to many restaurants and close to the town of Lake Geneva. We happened to have a warm and beautiful weekend. The only thing wrong was that the wifi did not work. I tried the instructions but it still not worked. The stairs were a

Challenge but we used the 2-stair side of the house. Thanks for all the instructions that were posted around the house because they were very helpful. We would definitely consider staying again!

Owner's Response: So glad you found the house warm and inviting! The town of Fontana and nearby Walworth are quiet lake communities with lovely amenities, and the town of Lake Geneva is a short drive away. So sorry the WiFi did not work for you. WiFi can be temperamental at times. There is no guarantee. The clubhouse at Abbey Springs does have wifi. It's the perfect backup if you have a dire need. I do mention in my description of the property that the house is not handicap accessible. You do need to climb the deck or basement stairs to access the living quarters. Luckily the terrain of the property does allow guests to access the home on one side by climbing two stairs. So glad you found all of the signage and instructional notes helpful. I welcome your return stay! I

A fantastic girls weekend house!

  • 4 of 5

A group of 5 girlfriends enjoyed a fantastic weekend here. The house has a great fireplace and plenty of space. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware and dishes. It's about a 20 minute drive or so drive to downtown Lake Geneva, but the house offers the space and open concept we wanted for hanging out together. The owner was great at communicating and very helpful.
