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 to the bartender had a smile on their face and welcomed us as if we had been there 100 times. I liked how it was family-friendly, yet the resort was not over-run with annoying little ones. Elkhart Lake is one of the most (if not THE MOST) prestine lakes I have every seen, and the beach was extremely well kept. The bartenders (Jane in the Elk Room, and the Zachs on the Lake Deck), were a pleasure to be served by, made delicious drinks, and gave excellent recommendations for running around town. We are from Madison, and you cannot find a server/bartender (let alone housekeeping staff) that are that pleasant... even with the draw of a college town. The Osthoff Resort does it right... and my wife and I will certainly be returning as soon as often as we possibly can.
