    Murder Mystery Dinner: Midnight at the Masquerade

    The rustle of silks and feathers under muted conversation was probably the last thing heard by the tragically and unexpectedly deceased at the Billionaires’ Club Annual Masquerade Ball. With a mystery under each feathery façade, unmasking the killer may be quite a challenge, but it's up to you to determine which partygoer is guilty before the masked menace gets away! Bring your appetite for a three-course dinner and dress in evening wear, fancy dresses, suits, tuxes, and Venetian masks to this high-class Friday the 13th soiree. The Murder Mystery Co. guides you through this interactive program for ages 18 and up.

    October 13 | 7:00pm - 9:00pm | $79 per person

What's Your Fall Flavor?

With so many things to do at the resort and in the area, you'll be able to create the perfect fall experience that suits your tastes.

  • The Abbey Resort

    Get Out Into Nature

    Enjoy the gorgeous golden hues, the sound of crisp leaves underfoot, and the earthy fragrance of fall when you throw on a comfy sweater and head outdoors.

    The Lake Geneva Shore Path is located just steps away from our resort and can provide a walk that lasts a half hour or even a full day. Explore some or all of the 26 mile public pathway around the lake that passes by historic homes, beautiful gardens and local wildlife.

    People of any activity level can take in the flora and fauna on a hike at a nature preserve such as Kishwauketoe or in the rolling hills of color in our area state parks. If you prefer to travel by car, ride in style when you rent a classic car from American Classic Rentals and take a ride on scenic Snake Rd.

    Want a little history with your time outdoors? Take a drive to Old World Wisconsin and tour over 60 restored historic structures on over 600 acres of property at the edge of the gorgeous Kettle Moraine.

  • The Abbey Resort

    Make it Exciting

    The falling temperatures don't mean you have to slow down. Take advantage of the smaller crowds at some of the area's most popular attractions and make your getaway an adventure.

    If you love to challenge yourself and see things from new angles, spend some time at Lake Geneva Ziplines & Adventures to take on the ropes course or soar through the trees. If you want to see things from a whole new level, take a balloon ride over the area at sunrise or sunset with Lake Geneva Balloon Company.

    Wanna go wild? Drive through the unique conservation-focused ranch of Safari Lake Geneva and feed animals ranging from alpacas to zebras as they come up to your car to say hello.

    If indoor adventure is more your thing, head to the Lake Geneva Clue Room for 60 minutes of mystery and excitement as you try to escape one of their rooms by decoding clues and solving puzzles.

    Let Your Taste Buds Guide You

    The season brings a variety of unique taste sensations that can only be experienced for a short time. The Lake Geneva area is the perfect place to experience them. Start at our own 240 West for the seasonal flavors of fresh farm-to-fork dining paired with stellar harbor views.

    Feel like warming up with your favorite adult beverage? Indulge in a Exclusive Maple Bourbon Old Fashioned or one of our other Wisconsin's Original Craft Cocktails. Heading off property? Visit one of the local breweries, distilleries or vineyards for a little education and a lot of delicious flavor.

    Of course, no autumn is complete without visiting one of the local orchards for fresh, crisp apples and ciders, or picking out the perfect pumpkin at an area pumpkin patch.

    Retreat Into Relaxation

    For some people, the ultimate way to get away is with their feet up, cozy sweater, hot beverage in hand, watching the world go by. If this sounds more like your speed, finding a way to decompress and escape is easy! The perfect place to start is in Avani Spa. Enjoy one of our new services in our renovated facilities and let your stresses melt away.

    If you're looking for a laid-back tour of the area, make it a unique one and take a cruise on the lake on one of the beautifully restored boats of Lake Geneva Cruise Line's fleet. Their public tours run every day through the end of October with guided narration and sometimes entertainment and cocktails.

    Grab a sweater and your favorite fall coffee at Cafe Latte, then head into downtown Lake Geneva for some leisurely shopping. After a slow-paced day of browsing, cuddle up with some popcorn and a movie at Emagine Geneva Lakes.
