My husband and I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day. We worked with Tabby throughout our entire wedding experience. From going to view The Abbey, booking the room, the tasting, all of the planning along the way, and on the big day. Tabby was a pleasure to work with, she is the best! Tabby was very helpful and answered any questions that we had while planning our wedding. She was very quick to respond to emails and phone calls. Tabby made sure all of our requests were met. She made sure that our room was set up exactly how we wanted and that everything ran smoothly on our wedding day. Both my husband and I could not have imagined working with anyone else. She really made our special day even more magical than we could have hoped for.
We had our reception in the Harbor Ballroom. The room looked amazing and was very spacious. The windows overlooking the harbor set up a breathtaking view. Our guests were blown away. The food was also top notch. All of our guests were raving about all courses of their meals. The bartenders and waitstaff were very friendly as well. We also booked a block of rooms for our wedding. The rooms looked great, were very clean, and comfortable. The Abbey would be a perfect venue to have a wedding for any couple.

The Abbey Resort made our daughters wedding the absolute perfect day. From working with event planner. Pam and reservations, Claire, they made this so easy. We planned for months and then when the day arrived everything was perfect. The food was good, the room looked great, the rooms were wonderful, the staff was so efficient. I could not say enough to share our feelings on the wonderful staff at the Abbey. The views are beautiful, we took all pictures outside. I would truly plan another event at the Abbey!!

I recently had my wedding and wedding reception at The Abbey Resort in Lake Geneva Wisconsin. From the moment I arrived they staff was beyond helpful and attentive. The extra effort was above expectations. The wedding reception was amazing. The food and service was excellent and every detail was professional. The staff and wedding planner was exceptional. I could not have asked for a more perfect venue or day. The guest where happy and the Abbey Resort made sure all our needs where taken care of. We would highly recommend this venue for any and all events. I want to thank the Resort for making our day memorable one that will last a lifetime. Many magical moments to look back on and I am grateful for the experience.
Thank you!

The Abbey Resort was the perfect place to have my wedding!

We hosted a 130 person wedding in the Grand Ballroom and it was PERFECT!

From the first inquisition into wedding services at The Abbey Resort I was assigned an event coordinator and she was WONDERFUL! She was always available via phone or email and always replied promptly to me! Kept me updated during the entire 12 months of wedding planning!

The venue was beautiful! The floor to ceiling windows that overlook the harbor are what really sold us on this venue!

Our event coordinator was very flexible and knowledgeable on setting up the venue for our wedding. She brought several suggestions and we compromised on the perfect set up! They brought in couches, chairs and high boy table to create a lounge atmosphere for cocktail hour & for a quieter area for people to chat during the reception. It was perfect!

The food choices were amazing! Everything came out hot and delicious! The service staff that night was impeccable!

I can't say enough about how easy The Abbey staff is to work with and how amazing their facilities are! If you love the lake and boating like my husband and I do, this venue is a must! Check out their photos and take a visit, you'll be hooked!

The BEST place in Lake Geneva Area for a wedding reception!

The Abbey Resort was an incredible place for our wedding! It was honestly the best day of our lives. Between the atmosphere and beautiful setting, you cannot go wrong if you choose to get married here. We worked with Pam Linker who was awesome about answer all of my (million) questions throughout the planning process! We are from the Chicago Suburbs and decided to make a long weekend out of our wedding which turned out great. We even fit in some time for boating and family gatherings before the wedding day. The staff at The Abbey was so flexible with all of our requests. Our ceremony was at the Harbor Gazebo over Labor Day Weekend. My husband made his entrance to the ceremony on a boat with his groomsmen and docked right up to the slips next to the gazebo. Our guests all enjoyed the cocktail hour on the Waterfront Patio with the beautiful views of the boats/harbor. We had our reception in the Harbor Ballroom which can accommodate several size weddings and was perfect for ours. The service at dinner was phenomenal and the staff was very professional. The food/beverage was through The Abbey and we received several compliments. You can truly make the wedding your own and aren't required to use specific vendors for flowers,centerpieces, photography, etc. We also did our rehearsal dinner at the Abbey in the Porto Room which worked great and was convenient for our wedding party. The resort is a nice place to have all of your family and guests because it offers them a place to stay, restaurants, bars, entertainment, etc. We have lots of family that came in from out of town so they didn't have to travel much elsewhere during their stay. Overall, we never wanted our wedding day to end and had the best time ever!

The staff at the Abbey was responsive and so easy to work with, everyone from the front desk staff to the housekeepers were phenomenal. My husband and I were so happy we chose to have our wedding and reception there. The food was incredible, everyone commented that they had not had such awesome food at a wedding before. Great value too, we were able to stay within our budget.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Abbey this past weekend. Pam was our coordinator and she was fabulous! She did such a great job of informing us about everything and making us feel completely at ease. Our guests loved the Abbey. The food was delicious and everything was taken care of for us. Everyone at the hotel was very helpful and professional. I would encourage anyone to have their wedding at the Abbey. Excellent!

The Abbey was the perfect setting for our wedding! We have been engaged for ~2 years and were fortunate to work with Pam Linker as our coordinator the entire time as we planned our day. We had our ceremony at the gazebo on the lake and our reception in the tent and Pam made sure everything ran smoothly. Not only was she helpful and responsive throughout, the day went off without a hitch thanks to her expertise. The Abbey provided our guests with great service, even shuttling one of our groomsman back to the reception tent to pick up his left-behind groomsman gift late after the reception had ended. Definitely look into the Abbey- you won't be disappointed!
