Took advantage of a special deal in December for the Osthoff European Christmas Market. Stayed on Monday night Dec. 8th. We had the place almost to ourselves which was great. The Christmas market itself was so-so. Only a couple of actual European vendors. Took us about 20 minutes to walk through. But that's another story. The real problem came with... More

Very much enjoyed my winter-getaway to the Osthoff Resort. I ended up with a fabulous one-bedroom condo with a view of the lake. Absolutely loved the spa there, and the indoor pool. The restaurant was small , but nice, and the lobby bar was beautiful. The town itself is very sweet with many quaint shops and lovely restaurants. I'd like... More

I've stayed at the Osthoff numerous times over the last several years. On many of the occasions I coordinated a weekend event for 100 people. Whether it was a couple's weekend, or a big event, our experience is always wonderful. Osthoff is condos that are rented out - many are suites, complete with kitchen and whirlpool tub for two. You...

Celebrated New Years Eve at the Osthoff and everything was perfect! Elk Room had live music as well as Lola's Restaurant. Staff is top notch all around including Connor at the front desk. We will be visiting again soon! Also dined at Lola's and recommend it highly!

The Osthoff has always been kind of magical for me. My family came up here during the winter a couple of times when I was a teenager, and since then, I'd been itching to go back as adult. My boyfriend and I went up the weekend after Christmas. We booked with a deal, but the cost was still reasonably high... More

I would give 5 stars but thought it was not cool that we couldn't check in 10 minutes early because our room wasn't ready. We were put on a call list two hours prior and never received a call. That was the only negative comments that I have. We stayed in a 3 bedroom suite that was wonderful and spacious.... More

My review of The Osthoff Resort is mixed. Our most recent stay ended unpleasantly. We made reservations for a two night stay in a room with a whirlpool tub and tickets for the Old World Christmas Market. Our first evening was very enjoyable; we relaxed, enjoyed the inroom hot tub & slept well. The next day we had breakfast at... More

Dear Lynnie M, My sincere apologies for the service lapses you experienced during your most recent stay with us. Your experience does not reflect our mission to deliver the best resort experience to our guests, nor the memorable Osthoff experience you have enjoyed in past stays. We clearly fell short of that unspoken promise. Thank you for letting us know... More

We stayed here the weekend of Dec 7, 2014. It was extremely busy. We had gotten to the hotel and the room wasn't ready. But they said they would call as soon as it was. They never did call. We went back at 4 and it was ready. By then I was exhausted, and since I use a cane or... More

We rented 2 side by side, 3 bedroom lakeside deluxe units and they were perfect for our family of 16, 8 adults and 8 children. We made our own breakfast, lunch and snacks in the kitchen/dining area of one of the units. For dinner one night we had room service from Otto's restaurant, a delivery of 5-16 inch pizzas. On...
