It's all in the details at this resort! We loved our stay, which was much too short, only one evening...our roo overlooked the woods, was a two room suite with a balcony. We relaxed in two very comfortable chairs as we ate our dinner from the golf club just down the street. Great chairs! The grounds are so beautiful! On...

We stayed in a two bedroom and the rooms were bright, clean and inviting. The staff is friendly and helpful. The town of Elkhart Lake has activities; music at the Tiki Bar, and pontoon boat rentals to get out on the lake and a great ice cream shop on Lake Street. Very relaxing atmosphere. We went a weekend without Road...

We booked a spa get away package that included a room in the newest wing of this Beautiful historic landmark. Our package included dinner, breakfast and spa treatments! I can't say it was cheap, but I can say that it was a great value! Staff was outstanding from the front desk, bar, restaurants, SPA, manager, everyone was outstanding at making...

We have stayed at the Osthoff five times in the past two or three years and each time we have not been disappointed. As a rule we never return to the same place more than once, but this resort ticks all the boxes. It is high end enough to feel luxurious, and friendly enough that your kids are comfortable walking...

Our first experience at the Osthoff and overall it was great! Amazing property with nice rooms. Very comfortable bed and quiet room despite multiple weddings taking place. Some things I would have improved would be more towels in the bathroom. We could have requested more but seems like a room with a whirlpool tub should have more than two. Also,...

This place is beautiful! Right on Elkhart Lake, the water is crystal clear. Played a game of bean bags, hit the work out room and enjoyed the pool. The grounds provide picturesque scenes everywhere you look. And the staff is top notch! They bring this gem all together for a great business/vacation!

We started going to the Osthoff when we lived in Chicago, and continue to visit even though we now live on the East Coast. The rooms are always clean and well maintained. most have been remodeled in recent years. We like that we can get rooms with full kitchens and in-unit laundry (in larger units). Having a full kitchen allows...

Have been going every spring for the past eight years. The place is very well maintained. Staff always seems to exceed expectations. Have stayed in both wood and lake view and can't find fault with either. The grounds are beautiful and it is a quick walk to the little town of Elkhart lake, the surrounding area is also stunning.

I went to OstHoff with two other families. The two families stayed together in the 3 bedroom. It is very big and with 11 people they slept comfortably. I stayed in the two bedroom suite and it was nice, only downside was their did not appear to be an air conditioning unit in the second bedroom. The person sleeping there...

We completely enjoyed our stay at the Osthoff, the room was beautiful with everything we needed. We stayed in the two bedroom two bath room overlooking the lake, the kitchen was nice and had all the amenities necessary for a longer stay.
