We have been enjoying The Osthoff Resort for many years now. Super clean spacious rooms (we always get a lake view suite) set in a lake environment make for high octane relaxation. Attentive service, attractive grounds with every amenity known to man make it a place you never want to leave. They even have a beach on the lake to... More

Attended a wedding at the resort. Rooms are spacious/very clean and modern and next day room service was great. Wedding hall was spacious, food was great and served hot, and the acoustics in the room were great. we could actually hear every toast and the live band was awesome. Resort grounds are beautiful along Elkhart Lake and plan on returning... More

First time comer to this resort, my husband and I stayed in a one bedroom Woodland Suite with a comfortable bed and awesome bathroom with a tub and walk in shower. Also, we didn't have a great view of Elkhart Lake, but that didn't matter to us since we were there for a work holiday party and were not staying... More

Three friends checked into the hotel for mid-January gals get-away/writing retreat. Covered with snow, the hotel is stunning. The Elk Lounge is a lovely paneled drinking and small plate experience out of the 19th century. The only downside to our stay was the location of the 3 bedroom/2 bath apartment we rented...The apartment's great room (living, dining and kitchen) looked... More

The Osthoff Resort is elegant in a quiet way, and very friendly to families. It is in a peaceful wooded part of Wisconsin, but there are plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance. The resort features a spa, which is heavenly, and it has top-quality restaurants. Not too far away are urban places to explore, including Sheboygan along Lake... More

We were guests of my father for the Xmas weekend. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the beds were incredible. We were a family of 13 and shared 4 rooms close to each other. The only hiccup was no paper on any of the days we were there.

We started our day with a festive breakfast. Which was very nice. Although as we had a later booking there was quite a lot of cleaning up happening around us which made us feel rushed. We had an early check in on a one night stay. The suite was amazing with fabulous lake views. Overall this was a perfect weekend... More

If you've not been to the Osthoff around Christmas time, you're missing a real experience. The "busy" season is clearly in the summer, but Christmas is really special at the Osthoff. There are lots of activities for kids (cookie decorating, ornament making, breakfast with Santa, etc) and the decorations are absolutely amazing. I'd recommend the Osthoff for anyone - any... More
