We have stayed at the Osthoff multiple times over the years and seen the resort grow. This is definitely our go to when visiting family in the area. We had our wedding reception here more than a decade ago and were able to accommodate people from all over the country. It was such a great time that people still mention... More

If you have ever watched dirty dancing and remember the resort they stayed at? That's what it felt like. I also got a sense they wanted to be Disney type resort... however... they don't really keep up on the maintenance! The first thing I noticed was the elevator. It was severely lacking any upkeep. Banged up, dinged up. Then came... More

The bed have to be stuffed with clouds at this property. Such a beautiful hotel with so many places to explore. Also a quick walk into a quaint little town. The grounds are kept very neat and tidy and rooms were very clean. We ate at Lola's on the lake and the food was just heavenly (Grilled Filet Mignon). Even... More

The context of most of this review is through the eyes of a family with a toddler. I'll get to more on that in a second... Since this property is rated as "four diamond" by AAA and markets itself as a higher end resort, I think it's reasonable to have a bit more of a microscope on some things. The... More

We were a group of 25 family members with ages 1 to 80. Everyone had a great time. I was going to attempt to detail all the activities, but trust me when I say everyone was entertained. And for the adults, don't forget to start your day with a Bloody Mary at the lake bar, it comes with a salad... More

I visit the Ostoff, at minimum, once per year. Every aspect of the resort is wonderful. I come here every year with my sister and girlfriends to enjoy the spa, Lola's and town of Elkhart Lake. We love, love, love it. THe rooms are clean and fresh, the spa is wonderful, the food is extremely good and we just have... More

we have been going to the Osthoff as a family for 20 years and every year it just gets better. At the least we have a group of 40 at the most about 100 people. There is something for everyone....from the indoor and outdoor pools, to beautiful Elkhart Lake, to the nearby golf course, basketball courts, tennis courts and the... More

When we arrived at the resort it is very impressive. The front desk staff could use some business training, but they were all young college students, and not very knowledgeable about the area. The grounds of this resort are beautiful, there is nothing that can be said about the beauty here. Our room was a One bedroom Condo with a... More

We have been here many times but it's been awhile since the last visit. Our youngest kids are now 18. There is not a lot for kids this age to do at the resort or in town. It's a great place for young kids....beach, open space for games, multiple pools, arcade. There are kayaks and SUP boards to rent, but... More
