Take a break from the real world

At The Abbey Resort, you can escape into a virtual world, lounge by our outdoor pools, glide across the ice on our seasonal rink, or unleash your inner artist and paint your own keepsake to take home with you.

Immersion Cafe


Go beyond reality in The Abbey Resort's new entertainment venue, Immersion. Experience the future of gaming in our virtual reality arcade, enjoy your favorite movies or cheer on your team on the big screen in the cinema, and watch your friends as they test their skills while you relax with food and drink from the café. 

Abbey Marina


Staying at the only resort on the shores of Lake Geneva has its advantages. Reserve a slip for your boat or rent one of the Cobalt Blue Bowriders from Gordy’s onsite rentals and experience Lake Geneva on the water.
