Holidays at the Lake

Traditions kept, memories made

It's a magical time of year

From Thanksgiving through New Year's Day, The Abbey Resort aquires a special feel. Lights and garland fill the lobby, trees are trimmed around the resort and the lake takes on a quiet stillness. Families come together to celebrate the holidays - some for the first time, others as an annual family tradition. For all, memories are made that will last a lifetime.
