We visited the Osthoff in March '12. We spend 5 days there and for the most part had a great experience. We tried to get there before dark, as it is off the beaten path and the signage was virtually non-existent. Although it is a straight shot north on the highway, once you hit those county roads, watch out! The hotel is charming and the staff friendly and attentive. However, we were there offseason (which we knew) and the restaurants shared hours, so there wasn't much choice, until the actual weekend. The food is very good though!!! The room was large and very clean. The view was beautiful; overlooking the lake and walking path.
The spa was fabulous, until the weekend, when it was crowded and very noisy with ladies enjoying their girls weekend, completely unaware, or caring, there were others trying to enjoy theirs.
We will try it again, as it did help us unwind, but we would not include a weekend due to the noisy spa and we'd go in a different season, perhaps late spring or in the fall.
