The sweet bliss of toasted gooey marshmallows and melting chocolate sandwiched between crunchy graham crackers brings back memories of childhood campfires. You can share the delectable delight of s’mores with your kids or grandkids around the bonfire at the Abbey Resort on Wisconsin’s Lake Geneva during three family focused weekends this fall. Columbus Day weekend and the weekends immediately before and after Halloween will be filled with family friendly activities.
Arts and crafts, pumpkin bowling, glow-in-the-dark pool and movie time, ice cream socials, and of course, bonfires with s’mores and apple cider are just some of the activities scheduled during the resort’s family weekend events. On Saturday, October 26, and Saturday, November 2, resort guests and community members can also participate in the 4th Annual Halloween Spooktacular that includes a haunted trail, hayrides, bonfire and a Crazy Costume Contest. A $5 admission fee to the Spooktacular will benefit the Big Foot High School National Honor Society. All of the regular family-friendly activities are available throughout the weekends, too, like board games, an arcade, and swimming pool.
The Abbey Resort, the only full-service resort on the shores of Lake Geneva, boasts 90 acres of beautifully manicured grounds, 334 guest rooms including 13 suites, two on-site restaurants plus bars, cafes and lounges, the 35,000 square-foot AVANI spa, nearby award-winning golf courses, and a marina. Babysitting services are also available.
Located in Fontana, Wisconsin, the Abbey Resort is about 80 miles northwest of Chicago. For further details about family packages or to make reservations, visit The Abbey Resort website.
