Abbey Springs-2 Story Condo /Lake Geneva, Fontana, WI

Fairly updated condo in amenity-laden Abbey Springs

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Fontana, and would recommend Abbey Springs for people looking for lots of great amenities like lake access, playground, restaurants, pool, game room, golf, and tennis. We also spent 3 weeks at this condo, so got to know it very well. It's fairly updated, with a very comfy couch and comfy beds. The biggest downside for us was that it does not come with a golf cart, and renters aren't allowed to park down by the lake, so you have to carry ALL of your beach stuff down the hill and back up the hill. With 2 kids, this was very tiring. The only other downside is that the 2nd floor (living/dining/kitchen) was always at least 10 degrees warmer than downstairs (because heat rises :). So, it was very difficult for us to keep the upstairs cool during the day. But, if you're going to be at the lake all day and don't have to come home for naps like we did, you should be fine. Last, renters should be aware that there's a skinny spiral staircase connecting the two floors inside. The only wide staircase between the two floors is outside, off the deck.

Owner's Response: Although condo does not come with golf cart and renters can not park at lakefront you can drop off at the lakefront and park across the street at the Rec Center. We are very proactive owners and respond immediately to the needs of our renters.

The property was perfect for our weekend! It was clean and everything was there that we needed. The location is ideal, within walking distance of the pool, restaurant, and beach. We will definitely return!

Escaping with the family and grandkids.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Abbey Springs condo in Lake Geneva. The accomodations at the condo were comfortable and the two sides of the condo flanked by patio doors made the view very beautiful. Sue had everything there for us including a washer and dryer. We especially liked the close location to the beach area, the wonderful "sand" mountain and jump houses for the kids, and the indoor/outdoor pools including a zero depth one for the grandkids. We rented a pontoon boat on Lake Fontana for an exceptional ride on the connecting lakes. The only suggestion I would have is to bring a child gate for the top of the spiral staircase. It can be tricky with little kids. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this condo for a vacation in Lake Geneva.

Lucky to have Found it

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect summer vacation for a family. The rooms and layout fitted our family of four very well. The condo is equipped with everything (excepting a grill and golf cart) you might need and has easy access to the private beach & pools. A quick drive gets you to your coffee shop of choice. Location is truly great.

North Woods without the long drive! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and were very happy with the space and how clean it was. The deck is the best we spent our nights out there just enjoying the outdoors.The grounds are beautiful they have such a wonderful north woods feel to them. The pools are great for all ages and the beach is so cute. The place is great and we will be returning next year for sure. We will recommend it to all our friends.
