My wife and I stayed for a two night getaway looking for some quiet time and relaxation by the pool and on the lake. We were very wrong! The resort is overrun with families and kids. It's noisy, and not well supervised. The pools are tiny for the size of this very large resort, and they are packed with noisy... More

For being a 4 star resort, it was a bit lacking. Let me start by saying, the grounds were beautiful. That is where the pleasure stopped. The rooms are spacious, but tired looking. The pools were very, how do I say, lacking. I wish one was an adult pool. I love kids, I was one once, but while on vacation,... More

KIDS, KIDS; don't get me wrong I like children. We were looking for a relaxing and quiet weekend retreat, unfortunately we didn't get that. We couldn't relax in either of the outdoor pools as kids occupied both, splashing and jumping with all their toys, not to mention crying and whining. Adult time for the outdoor pools were 10 pm -...

The Osthoff Resort offers exceptional service, lovely grounds and comfortable rooms and beds. Spent five nights at the Osthoff for the vintage racing at Road America. Utilized the Aspira Spa and received impeccable service. Every employee we encountered was pleasant and helpful.

Great location, quiet town, 30 minutes from Lake Michigan. Very well kept resort, clean, several restaurants and bars. Two outside pools and indoor pool as well as a lakefront beach with reasonable priced rentals. We used the pontoon and kayaks.p, and pools over and over, as well as the workout room. Ate at the Lakeside Grill and I thought food... More

We traveled to the Osthoff from July 1-5, 2015. We rented two condos, a 2 bedroom lake view suite and a 3 bedroom woodland deluxe. When we booked, these were the only two rooms left near each other. We would have preferred something bigger to accommodate all of us, but the largest they have is a 3 bedroom. We also... More

This is an absolutely beautiful resort! I cannot say enough about the cleanliness, the superior accommodations, and the beautiful surroundings. The view of Elkhart Lake is impressive. The highlight of our stay at the Osthoff was dining at Lola's on the lake. This is gourmet dining at its finest! Of all the restaurants my wife and I have visited over... More

This was our second year at the resort. Previously we stayed at Sibekins - no comparison. This resort has wonderful condos - spacious, updated, great mattresses, clean, quiet, a lovely porch over-looking the woods. Great location - we walked up town to dinner at night. Lovely, clean beach with beach chairs and all towels provided and beach side food/beverage service... More

Lovely, peaceful resort on pretty Elkhart lake. The chaises on the small beach were perfect for enjoying the fall & spring weather, and sunset watching. Summer brings crowds. Good spot for family reunion but if seeking quiet avoid summer. The grounds and gazebo are so beautifully maintained - would be an excellent venue for a small wedding. The staff is... More

Perfect place for a girl's getaway. We loved having our own bedrooms and ample space to hang out. Loved the generous kitchenette. Staff was friendly and helpful, from booking all the way to checkout. Enjoyed the variety of things to do, including canoes & paddle boats, the evening cruise & the bonfire. Grounds were stunning, the rooms were lovely, and... More
