My friend and I went for a girl's weekend and had a fabulous time. At other resort there never seems to be enough staff or that they don't speak English that well. Not problems at the Osthoff. The room we reserved was a 1 BR suite with kitchen. It was roomy. The bathroom ammenities were nice quality. There was a... More

This resort, is very relaxing, good spa. nice pools, very good food. The gardens and the grounds are so very pretty. We had a wonderful time, rooms are all suites with gas fireplace. Very clean, nice bathrooms, beds are very firm however. Such a pretty location and only a 15 minute drive the Lake MI. Friendly staff.

My wife and I had our mini honeymoon here for 2 nights this week and cannot stop talking about how amazing of an experience we had! The food, the room, the beauty, you name it... 5 stars! The one aspect that will keep us coming back more than anything is the service. Every person from the bellhop to the maids... More

The Osthoff Resort was a truly remarkable and relaxing vacation. As first-timers, we were very impressed at the quaintness and beauty of the area. We stayed in lakeview accommodations which were immaculate and gorgeous. Boat and canoe availability were convenient. Biking not as intense as we anticipated, but the area itself is a treasure. Will definitely return!

Great place, and really enjoyed the amenities within the resort. Otto's restaurant had superb food and service was great! We had dinner and lunch at Otto's and dinner one night at Lola's. Lola's was pricey, and food was average. We sat outside, and under our table and others was mulch and food from people before us (left note on comment... More

Stayed at the Osthoff every other year since 1999 and have a great experience every time. The rooms are lovely, no matter what type you get. The grounds are beautiful with many colorful flowers. I went to Aspira Spa for the first time and it was exceptional. Rented a kayak one morning for a very quiet time on the lake.... More

This resort is old school.....but not OLD. The resort is very classy and has three pools, indoor exercise room, two great restaurants and is close (walking distance) to the town and other very nice restaurants. You can rent a fishing boat, a sail boat, a speed boat, go on a "morning coffee cruise: or a "twilight cruise". You can rent... More

All in all this is a great place for a quick get a way or to have a group get together. the downtown area is small but again very friendly. There area a few... More

The booking process was easy. This property is quiet, clean, comfortable and a nice family get away. There is a lot to do, or do as little as you want, and relax. The rooms are pricey, but we had a two bedroom condo with a kitchen. You can save money by cooking for yourself, and we did. However we did... More

This resort was hopping with guests (especially children this week) yet I felt like I was personally attended to with great friendliness and consideration, the training of this staff is impeccable. The resort and surrounding area is beautiful with great restaurants in such a small village, truly a serene location to spend a lovely get-away from the hustle and bustle... More
