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...

My husband and I stayed at The Osthoff Resort to celebrate my beautiful friends’ 10 year wedding anniversary. The anniversary itself was just beautiful and the set-up of the room was lovely and simple. The staff was very professional and pleasant. The food was very good. It's definitely a place to gather your family to celebrate anniversaries, weddings, and whatever... More

Beautiful resort, well maintained, friendly staff. The rooms are very spacious, have kitchens, a living room, and balcony. Nice indoor and outdoor pools. Walk to the small town of Elkhart, and nice walking paths around the lake. The Bar has great cocktails and coffee drinks. Good is decent and not over priced, which is a nice change for hotel restaurants.... More

We spent the Christmas weekend at the Osthoff with our entire family, occupying several suites. We started our stay by enjoying the amazing Christmas buffet, which was excellent. I made a special request to have our 4 suites on the same floor - which Shannon worked hard to accommodate, which made the experience even more special. The grounds are beautiful,... More

We just needed an easy and relaxing getaway. The Osthoff Resort and Aspira Spa filled the bill. The resort, though quiet on a February weekend, was welcoming and comfortable. Our one-bedroom suite facing the courtyard (picturesque with families skating on the frozen pond) was lovely, The bed was comfortable and the bath luxe. The only downside was the heat- the... More
