About Chrissie

We are a family of 5 and have been going up to Lake Geneva for many years. Our 3 boys love swimming in one of the cleanest lakes around. We are creating many great memories with our kids.

Chrissie purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Chrissie chose Fontana-on-Geneva Lake

After years of 'going to the lake' we like our location the best since it can be quiet and nestled in nature while only steps away from all the action. We are walking distance to all of the fun!

What makes this townhome unique

Our town home is very spacious allowing everyone to spread out and relax. The bunk bed room is a kids haven with a large flat screen tv with Netflix and You Tube, surround sound, Blueray DVD, Bluetooth ready to play music from your Apple device and Playstation. Our main Family room has a 55 inch flat screen, Surround Sound, Blueray DVD and Netflix. Our pool has a nature view and is rarely crowded.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say thank you! The house was perfectly located, and beautiful! The girls had a great time and there was ample space for 10 of is! We were all talking about returning for the summer!

Beautiful, well-stocked home.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, clean, well stocked home. We appreciated all the instructions about how to use the TV-DVR.

The beds were all very comfortable & the kitchen had everything we needed.A extra touch with beautiful clean towels & enough of them. To make it perfect, maybe a few small bars of soap. We always bring some, but not all of our family did. Thank you, great memories for our grandchildren.

Lovely home and good location. I thought we would have a view of the lake but did not.

  • 4 of 5

Nice private deck though. For a large newer home it seemed odd that 2 of the bedrooms do not have closets. Also, the property description should be clearer that these condos are not part of the Abbey Resort and do not have resort privileges.

Perfect location; Perfect townhome

  • 5 of 5

My family loves this rental. We have rented this unit for the past 3 years and have a great experience each time. It is located in an area that makes it possible to walk everywhere. The place itself is beautifully decorated and spaced out in such a way that 2 families fit without bothering each other. Chrissie, the owner, has been fabulous each time we reach out to rent again. I highly recommend.

Beautiful house in a great location - lots of space - well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week, as a party of 6, travelling with teenagers and children. The house is beautiful and Chrissy was really helpful, especially as we did not have a car and so could not be completely flexible with arrivals and departures. We enjoyed the board games in the house and BBQ on the deck. Also visited the restaurants in the resort , pool and beach which where all great. Would highly recommend, beautiful house and location - and so much space !!!! There's definitely something for everyone.

Excellent quality home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The home has great privacy and a peaceful back yard view. Just a two minute walk to the Abbey harbor and less than a ten minute walk to the beach and local restaurants. The pool was super for kids and it seemed like our own private pool.

Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved staying here!! We had a total of 11, kids and parents, and we had plenty of room! The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. The kids loved the bunk bed room! Each room has its own TV and there are plenty of pillows and blankets. It was great to have bath and beach towels available. The washer and dryer came in handy with messy kids. Loved hanging on the deck grilling and relaxing. The weather was really nice while we were there; however, we were so grateful for the heated pool on those not so hot days. It is a quick drive to Fontana beach and such a bonus that staying here offered free admission to the beach. The whole family loved it and we will definitely be back!!
