Say ‘I do’ to the perfect wedding on the shores of Geneva Lake. Located just 80 miles from downtown Chicago and 50 miles from Milwaukee, and adorned with breathtaking scenery, The Abbey Resort and Avani Spa specializes in beauty and romance. This treasured icon is the only full-service resort on the shores of Geneva Lake, and recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary with the completion of a multi-million dollar renovation. Nestled among 90 acres of beautifully manicured grounds, The Abbey offers multiple options for ceremony venues including lake view ballrooms, a climate-controlled pavilion, two outdoor gazebos, and its iconic A-frame interior, as well as ample garden and harbor view settings for the most picturesque of photography. Brides are encouraged to customize a menu perfectly suited to their unique tastes, as the resort offers catering by award-winning on-site chefs and dining facilities. The 35,000 square-foot Avani Spa located within the resort offers pampering and relaxation for the bride and her party, and features a private Sanctuary Suite available by reservation. Let The Abbey take care of the details, as on-site wedding planners are available every step of the way to transform a one-day celebration into a lifetime of memories.
