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 getaway

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying at this cozy house in Lake Geneva! The house has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing weekend, is down the street from the Abbey Springs pool and restaurant, and is also a very short walk to the Lake Geneva beachfront. In addition to the great house, Mary was fantastic to work with. She responded promptly to all emails and made sure that all of our questions were answered before we arrived. I definitely will be staying at this house again in the future.

Pefect for a group

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our group of bridesmaids for the weekend. It fit all 7 of us comfortably, the garage/driveway fit 4 cars, the kitchen was well equipped, everything was clean and updated, it was close to everything we wanted to do in the area, and the host was easy to communicate with. We're thinking about making this an annual event at this house since it was such a perfect weekend!

A wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

My six friends and I all stayed at this property this past weekend for a girls' weekend. It is wonderfully kept up, and fully stocked with everything we needed to have an amazing time together. It is clean and tidy and spacious enough for a group our size. The weather was gorgeous and we were able to walk around Abbey Springs and spend some time at the beautiful outdoor pool. The clubhouse amenities are fabulous! Perfect property, in the perfect location!

Owner's Response: Friends having a good time together and knowing that their needs were met at my property by both the amenities I provide and the Abbey Springs community provides is my goal!

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

Perfect layout for family of 5. Very relaxing and enjoyable stay. You will need to drive to wherever you want to go including the clubhouse. Easy access to Lake Geneva walking trail and Yacht club. Scenic community and golf course. Pretty and quiet. Beds were a little on the stiff side. Very happy with stay and would stay again. Owner was very accommodating and responsive.

Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The directions to the property and inside the house were excellent. Everything worked and the home was clean, well-equipped and fully supplied. Nicely furnished; great art work. Unfortunately, it rained all weekend so we were unable to sit out on the deck or enjoy the outdoors, but it was very comfortable to relax inside with a fire.

It is a wonderful Lake Geneva getaway that is dog friendly. The deck has a gate which is very helpful. If you have a dog, this is a great stay!
