  • We were extremely happy with our wedding at the Abbey. It was so beautiful in a very professional, courteous, and punctual enviornment. We booked on a very busy weekend where there were 4 weddings going on at the Abbey on the same day, but we were still treated wonderfully as if we were the only ones there. Our wedding planner was AMAZING, couldn't have pulled off such a perfect even without her!!

  • We got married at The Abbey on Friday June 10, 2016. We had our ceremony at the Harbor Gazebo, cocktail hour on the waterfront patio, and reception in the Harbor Ballroom. We cannot say enough good things about our day! The entire day my husband and I just kept looking at each other and saying "this day has been so perfect" because it was!! We worked with Tabby and from beginning to end she was amazing to work with. She was always very responsive to emails and very organized. She made the entire planning process painless and fun! We worked with Claire to book our room blocks. She was also wonderful to work with, very responsive and professional. The food was outstanding considering the volume of these meals that they make. We had the Sea Bass, the Chicken Fontina and the Vegetable tower. One of our guests told me after the reception that the chicken "may have been the best thing I have eaten in my entire life". How cool is that?? I've been to other functions at The Abbey before... Read more

  • This past Friday was my wedding, which took place at The Abbey Resort, and I can't say enough good things about this place! Our wedding took place in the gazebo by the West Shore Pavilion, and the reception was in the pavilion. It was beautiful, quiet, and quaint, just as we'd hoped, and we loved that we were able to go right from our ceremony to cocktail hour to our reception without taking transportation. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and they all thought the resort was one of the nicest places they've stayed, from the rooms to the amenities. I want to give a special thanks for Robyn Moe, our wedding coordinator, who was amazing throughout the whole process of planning our wedding. She answered all of our e-mails and phone calls very promptly, and she made sure that our day was just as we'd imagined it. I can't thank her enough for bearing with us, especially towards the end when I was getting overwhelmed and had to change some things in a matter of days. She even picked... Read more

  • We had the most amazing experience. Our wedding was amazing and everyone was kind and professional AND patient with us. Our guests loved the venue and had an amazing time exploring. I have only good things to say about The Abbey and the people working there.

  • We just had our wedding at The Abbey and we wouldn't have changed a thing. We first worked with Pam, then with Robyn following Pam's departure. Both were extremely professional and helpful at every stage of the process. The entire Abbey staff was very accommodating and friendly. We held our rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception all onsite which made the logistics of our weekend very easy. The resort's amenities helped to add to the fun, as many of our guests were able to enjoy the various food options, the pool, game room, gym, etc. The Abbey Resort is a beautiful venue, and we would not hesitate to recommend it to friends or family who are planning their wedding. I think Nicole and I found ourselves a special spot; one that we will continue to visit for many years to come.

  • We viewed the Abbey and three other nearby venues in one day and knew immediately the Abbey was a perfect choice for us. We had both our ceremony and reception at there. A huge part of why we loved this venue was Pam Linker. Throughout the entire process, she was communicative, helpful, responsive, and just all around a joy to work with. She coordinated everything so well our day went off without a hitch. The whole staff at the Abbey was really accommodating and helpful, all our guests were really impressed. And the food was absolutely delicious.

  • The Abbey is AMAZING!!! Pam is a wonderful wedding coordinator that is extremely responsive and great to work with. The entire staff made our family and friends feel welcome and many people said they plan to go back to The Abbey to stay. Pam was our wedding coordinator and she was extremely responsive and helpful throughout our entire planning process. Justin helped coordinate our room block and he was great as well. I strongly recommend everyone get married at The Abbey.

  • Overall, we were above and beyond happy with our wedding week and wedding day. We are so grateful for the many employees who helped to make our day perfect. We thoroughly enjoy the beautiful and relaxing decor of the resort, the gorgeous and outstanding lush grounds and the choice of amenities (The Avani Spa, The Waterfront, 240 West, The Arcade, etc.). We were able to have our entire wedding week held at The Abbey Resort. It was so convenient for our guests to attend all events at one location- from the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. The Harbor Gazebo, our ceremony site, was beautifully maintained. The white chairs provided were classy and appropriate. The Harbor Ball Room was beautiful! We were thrilled with the timeliness of table setup prior to our event. We were happy with quality of linens, napkins, and table placings. The layout of the room, specialty tables and bars was functional and easy to navigate. The food was exceptional,... Read more

  • The Abbey was amazing to work with! Our coordinator was Tabby and she was great! She helped us every step of the way and had awesome recommendations. The only downside was we were married on a busy weekend so when our guests arrived to check in to the hotel there was a long line and a lot did not have rooms ready until well after 4pm. This was frustrating but a minor detail. All in all the Abbey was an amazing vendor!

  • We had out wedding at The Abbey this past August and overall had a great experience. We worked with Pam who was very responsive thought the planning process and was very easy to work with. We did have several mix-ups throughout the wedding weekend but nothing too big to ruin our day. They were very apologetic and were able to make up for any shortcomings. We are very glad that we chose to have our wedding at the Abbey as it has been a special place that we've visiting many times throughout our relationship. It is a beautiful setting and out guests had a wonderful time spending the weekend on Lake Geneva. It certainly was the best day of our lives and we look forward to spending future anniversaries at The Abbey

  • We had a great experience working with the staff at The Abbey Resort for our wedding weekend hotel room blocks and guest gift bag deliveries! Both Claire and Tabitha were very responsive via e-mail, which was especially appreciated in the final days leading up to the event. Our check-in process at the desk was a bit on the slow side - some of our guests commented on this as well. The location of The Abbey was perfect for our rehearsal dinner at Gordy's and our ceremony at The Community Church of Fontana! After having booked the Avani Spa at The Abbey for my bridal party hair and makeup, my mom and I went for a trial prior to the big day. Hair and makeup for 2 people took just under 4 hours - the hair stylist worked quickly, yet the makeup technician was extremely unorganized. Later that week I expressed my concerns to the spa manager, who assured me that she would urge her makeup technician to better prepare herself for the actual day-of. Things did go better, though the one makeup ... Read more

  • My husband and I held our wedding reception in the Porto Room at the Abbey Resort on Friday, April 22, 2016. From the first time we stepped foot in the Porto Room, we were sold on the venue! It was a perfect-sized room for our smaller wedding reception of 70 people and it had so much charm and atmosphere with the windows, chandeliers and even the over-sized red/orange chairs! With our budget, we weren't sure we would be able to afford the room; however, the Abbey worked with us extensively to make our dream a reality and moving our wedding day to Friday also helped (keep Sunday in mind as well). Those in attendance at our wedding were floored by the room itself and were very impressed by the ambiance, including the working fireplace. It made for a very intimate and inviting reception. Having the different levels within the room also helped as many of children made their way to the third floor to get their time away from adults and play games. It was a great way to keep everyone in the ... Read more

  • The Abbey is a cute resort on the other side of Lake Geneva. We hosted our wedding here in November and I was fairly disappointed with the service we received on that day and the months leading up to it. We booked our wedding knowing we would be inviting 80 people which is what we were told the room would hold. Kelly then later told us that two tables would have to be on the upper level because we couldn't fit 8 tables on the main level. Of course we panicked and were so confused why someone wouldn't mention this to us. We then looked at the room and confronted her saying we think we could fit 8 tables - which we ended up doing - and it was totally fine. I'm not sure if she didn't know the room very well or what, but the panic was totally avoidable. At least 20 of our friends and family members had issues booking their rooms. Long wait times, transferred back and forth, etc. I have no clue what the heck was going on or where the disconnect was but I have never seen a hotel that is ... Read more

  • We held our August 2015 wedding ceremony and cocktail reception at The Abbey Resort. The Abbey is in a stunning location - and the coordinator Tabby Bell was great to work with. Plus, we were able to get a really fantastic room block that allowed a ton of our friends and family to stay at the Abbey. By all accounts our guests had a good time staying there (great pools for kids, great restaurants, fun bars for after parties). But the big issue was how many other weddings were booked on the same Saturday. We booked first, with our ceremony at 3:30. But the Abbey then booked a second ceremony in the same location at 4:30 and a third one at 5:30. So that is 3 wedding ceremonies in the same location in 2 hours. We were really disappointed when we learned this. We met with the director of events to discuss our concern and he offered very little help. He explained that since the Abbey has a short wedding season (which is debatable), their goal is to book as many weddings as possib... Read more
