Experience the Lake Geneva advantage of The Abbey Resort 

Any resort can offer state-of-the-art meeting spaces and first class accommodations. At The Abbey, the experience goes beyond the amenities. Here, ideas flow like water, and fresh air, beautiful harbor views and 90 acres of beautifully manicured grounds will turn your meeting from ordinary to extraordinary.

We want to give you a worry-free experience from inqury to event to final billing, and have come up with innovative solutions to the current meeting environment from modified cancellation clauses and increased cleanliness standards to socially-spaced meeting sets and meeting breaks centered around wellness.

When deciding to take your team out of the office, why put them right back into another lifeless meeting room when you can share conversation and ideas with the backdrop of the sparkling water of Lake Geneva behind you. Whether you brainstorm in one of our sunlit meeting rooms, take in a dinner cruise on the water, or host an awards banquet in our windowed West Shore Pavilion overlooking the lush greenery of our grounds, your event at The Abbey will inspire new solutions and create shared positive memories for all who attend.

When groups gather together to meet on the shores of the lake, the sunlit meeting rooms, vast outdoor spaces surrounded by lush greenery, and quiet waters of Lake Geneva create a unique opportunity to be inspired, relaxed, and fully present in the moment. In this setting, keeping the safety of our guests at the forefront, The Abbey Resort has designed new meeting concepts to provide a balance between delivering purposeful events while promoting personal growth and improved well-being for your attendees.

Open Meeting Environment

Whether you meet in our 40,000 square feet of naturally-lit indoor meeting space or in the open air of our 90 acres of outdoor property, our meeting locations can be set to create optimal space, maintaining healthy and hygienic practices, while inspiring new solutions and creating shared positive memories:

  • Safe social distancing spacing in meeting sets - both traditional and relaxed

Stress-Free Meeting Solutions

Easy on your mind and your budget

Meetings and events will play a critical role in bringing teams back together and charting a course for the future, but companies will need to manage their risk in terms of cancellation, money spent, and return on investment. The Abbey Resort is an easy answer to the demands of the new world of meetings.

 

The Value of Meeting Local

Ninety acres of lakeside meeting space is only ninety minutes away from the heart of the city. A change of scenery and environment is a welcoming shift in routine that invites a new way of thinking, inspiring fresh ideas and solutions. Instead of flying to remote locations, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin is an easy drive from the urban areas, saving you planning time, travel costs, and car rental and parking fees. We aim to provide you value and high return on investment.

 

Zero-Risk Clause

We understand the caution being used when planning meetings for the near future. Companies are unsure of participation and changing guidelines for group gatherings. Because of this uncertainty, we have taken the risk out of the planning process with a new Zero Risk clause for all new contracts.

*Additional contract terms do apply. Program is subject to availability at the resort's discretion, and the resort reserves the right to cancel or modify this offer at any time.

 

Planning Partner Stimulus

We want to help our third party planners re-ignite their business, and hope than an increased upfront payout at booking will assist.

  • Paid commission of 5% of booked room revenue
  • A bonus 2% stimulus commission

After the client's program
