Property description

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 2 of the resort restaurants, swim in the indoor pool, relax in the hot tub, play a round of golf, head into Lake Geneva to shop or drive around the lake to enjoy the beautiful fall colors.

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.

Fall is a great time at Abbey Springs. The air is clear and crisp, and the leaves begin to show their spectacular color! Here are some great events happening in the nearby area:
