The Abbey is such a wonderful place. I cannot say enough about it. My 13-year old daughter also thinks it's the best. The staff are incredibly pleasant and helpful. The beds are unbelievably comfortable. There are all kids of activities offered, especially during spring break and over the summer. I would highly recommend The Abbey to anyone.
