We've always loved the Abbey, and used to come ands tay even before we moved to Wisconsin. The property is starting to show it's age unfortunatley and there are some maintenance that really needs to happen. Our oldest son plugged in the light in our room and got a shock and we realized the chord was broken and wires exposed. Staff promtly replaced the light but it is a bit concerening that it had not happened prior to arrival. Thankful that no one got really hurt in the incident. Overall we still really love the location and what the place has to offer and will continue coming back. Just wish there some of the deferred maintenance was done.

We were surprised to find that the balconies all join. We picked a harbor view room to enjoy wine and snacks privately outside but had no idea it would all be connected as a walking path around the building ;) My only heads up to everyone thinking the same when they book those rooms! Other than that it was wonderful.

This resort is amazing, especially for families with kids. They have multiple outdoor and indoor pools and hot tubs to keep the kids swimming and having fun all day while the parents relax in the hot tub or on the comfortable pool chairs. Everyone was so chill and happy and relaxed, truly a great atmosphere. No one policed us on anything, and everyone was polite and reasonable and respectful. We've been to other places where they don't allow floaties or goggles or what-have-you in the pools, but here you could do what you wanted as long as it was safe and you didn't bother anyone else. They also have a campfire with smores at night--pure happiness for the kiddos! There is also a beach, a couple of places where you can rent boats or jet skis, and a playground--all within walking distance. The only thing that could be improved, I guess, is a few more food options. They do have a fancy restaurant and a fast-food type kiosk next to the pool, but other than that you have to go outside the resort to eat. Not a biggie for us, there are a few places by the lake shore and many more reachable by a 10-minute drive. Overall, 5 stars. We had a great time here and will definitely come back.

The hotel over all is great. The front desk was amazing at combining our rooms next to other friends we had staying. The bartender in wine/piano bar could use some training on how to serve guests. She was very rude once she became busy.

The rooms could use some cosmetic updates. It was very humid and warm inside our room, the meeting rooms given to the bridal party to get ready and the ballroom. No hot water in the shower during one of the days. Waterfront restaurant food was good. My significant other was confused by another guest as an employee because he’s a person of color.
