We rented a two bed, two bath condo in the south wing of the resort for a week for our anniversary. Condo was comfortable, with new tiling and granite in the baths and kitchen. Excellent bed with comfy blankets and sheets. The staff was friendly. The rest of the resort left something to be desired. Every single day of our... More

This hotel is right under the five star rating of the American Club, without the cost. Amazing restaurants - I love Lola's! Great food! Its the perfect place for a fall get away - to experience all the fall colors on the way there.

What a marvelous event! World class jazz, great environment under the "big top", good food on site plus great restaurants at the Osthoff itself. Great wines selection, a fun shopping experience too.....this one deserves some award! and outside Wisconsin in May? wow!

Attended a women's retreat at this resort and the atmosphere and rooms were wonderful! Our whole group loved the grounds with walking path around the lake, adorable downtown area for shopping boutique type shops and truly wonderful restaurants that thrilled the pallet! Our room was one of the turret rooms, and with the larger living space and outdoor porch overlooking... More

The resort was top notch. From the moment I arrived there was someone to open the front door then offered assistance to my room. The whole resort was first class. The breakfast at Ottos restaurant within the hotel was great and fast which was good to get in a nice breakfast before meeting started for the day.

Signed up for a convention mainly because of the location of the hotel. I've never stayed at this place but have always heard great comments about it. Had a queen bed, great updated bathroom, small balcony - which I couldn't use due to weather. Furniture, lighting, kitchenette was very nice. Free local paper in the am. Swimming pool nice; I...

We just stayed at the Osthoff resort on April 18 for 1 night. I did not realize this place is huge, it has 4 floors and we were put in a room on the 4th floor almost on one corner of the resort. That's the part I did not like, especially when it is not a high season. It is... More

My state agency routinely holds conferences here . . .and my wife and I come here for weekend getaways. It's a great property. Very comfortable, very accommodating. My wife loves the Spa. Me? I fire up the whirlpool bath and flop in. Glorious. I'm trying to think of a bad experience or something subpar, and I can't. And I can... More

My wife and I took a weekend to get away and loved it here. A very nice downtown area for a small town. After eating at the resort one night, we grabbed a couple bottles of wine and some bread and cheese and ate at our room overlooking the lake. It was local prom and we enjoyed watching all the...
