The charming village of Fontana is located on the southwest edge of Geneva Lake, and is a relaxed vacation destination as well as the perfect place to call home. Tree-lined streets welcome visitors along Fontana’s Lake Shore drive, adorned with coffee shops, pizza parlors, and waterfront cafes. Fontana-on Geneva Lake is a village with many lakeside activities that include swimming or sun-bathing at Fontana’s sandy beach, hiking trails in the Hildebrand Nature Conservancy, and a variety of watersports.
Through the summer months, the beach is decorated with colorful umbrellas and beachgoers during the day and hosts regular “Movies on the Beach” in the evening, when locals and visitors alike gather to enjoy a lakeside flick. The Abbey Resort offers more dining options, recreational activities, and Avani spa services, available to both visitors and locals.
Fontana is home to a brand new state-of-the-art sailing facility, built for the LAKE GENEVA YACHT CLUB and Geneva Lake Sailing School, which was founded in 1872. The Yacht Club offers racing, regatta, classes and ongoing social activities throughout the year.
