My husband and I stayed at this resort for the first time -- and it won't be the last. The rooms were immaculately clean, staff was extremely professional and customer service oriented and the bonfire and making s'mores was just plain fun. The resort has plenty to do from the lake activities, to the indoor pool and hot tub which... More

The brochure and on-line photos are exactly what we found when we arrived - a very beautiful and well kept resort. Our group consisted of myself, 3 daughters and 3 grandchildren (under the age of 12). We spent 3 nights in a 2 bedroom suite which had very adequate space with the fold-out couch and an additional cot. With 3... More

We took a trip to the Ostoff for a weekend getaway with our 6 month old son. What a lovely time we had. The Ostoff is gorgeous. The room suites are clean, nicely decorated, spacious and the fireplace is a nice touch especially when it got chilly at night. The resort ammenities are plentiful. 2 outdoor pools, an indoor pool,... More

You cannot find a better place for the perfect vacation than The Osthoff Resort. Our family stayed there for years and then we decided to try other, less expensive resorts. We made a last minute decision to return this year and we were very lucky to get the last two bedroom deluxe suite with a courtyard view for a three-night... More

We were pleased with our short stay at the Osthoff. We stayed in a lakeview suite with a beautiful view. There was plenty of room for the four of us with the two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room and kitchen. We ate all of our breakfasts on our balcony except for one day at Otto's. Otto's has decent menu options... More

We loved seeing the happy extended families there and wished that ours were with us to play on the beach and in the pools. We had lovely meals at all the restaurants and great recommenations for in town also. The... More

This was our third time staying at Osthoff. As always, we were very impressed by the helpful staff (Jesse at the front desk, especially), cozy room, and great amenities. Such a relaxing time. We will be back for a 4th trip for sure.

The setting and gardens are beautiful. We only stayed 1 night in July (in a two bedroom unit) so missed activities which no doubt would have been fun. The building is dated on the interior and the rooms and patio are small. We had a good dinner and breakfast, however the dining room was very loud, especially in the morning... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Osthoff twice now. Both times were for the Elkhart Lake Triathlon in June, so both times the hotel was extremely busy. However, being a busy weekend, the service and accomodations were never lacking! We had a courtyard room, which had a beautiful view of the lake. Your own balcony is a great... More
