“Worth the drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Beautiful resort. Suites are fantastic! Restaurant food very good and service everywhere was excellent. Very relaxing in an excellent setting. First time visiting and it was the winter. Would definitely look to go back in the summer with all the lake activities available.

We stayed at The Osthoff during January. The lake is frozen over right now, but the Resort is so fabulous there was plenty to do inside the Hotel. The staff was courteous and friendly. I was suffering from a slight cold, and called the front desk late at night for some tea bags. They brought a variety to me very promptly, making my cold feel much better! I would recommend this hotel to anyone! Couples, family, wedding party. What an amazing property!`

Our 2-bedroom 2-bath suite at The Ostholf accommodated my family of 4 with room to spare. The room and staff were great. Sat out on my deck and watched kids ice skate on the pond....very cool. Inside pool area and hottub was ok. Will be going back!

We just tried the Ostholf Resort after numerous post-Christmas weekends at the nearby American Club. We always enjoyed the atmosphere, service, restaurants and especially the spa treatments at the American Club. The Ostholf delivered a comparable experience to my family.
Our 2-bedroom 2-bath suite at The Ostholf better accommodated my family of 5 and it was a better value. But the overall atmosphere is slightly less expressive the the American Club.
Spa services and restaurants were just as good as the Kohler comps. The nearby village is a plus, too.
I recommend families try this well run resort.

I was here for a business meeting. I wish my wife would have been able to accompany me. I was unable to take advantage of all of the amenities in the hotel and in the room. The food offerings for the meeting were very good. The restaurants in town were very nice and there is a wine shop in town that has some affordable offerings and a nice selection - including some eclectic wines. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The Osthoff is a fantastic place to stay during the holiday season. A room with a fireplace is a treat and the Elk Room is wonderfully decorated for the holidays. The in-house restaurants are very good, plus the location in Elkart Lake is perfect, with local restaurants and coffee shops being available to provide variety in dining opportunities. You'll have a "first class" stay!

Room Tip: We have always stayed on the third floor and found it to be very quiet and comfortable.

A fantastic property with outstanding staff and facilities.
We attended a wedding, stayed overnight and were very well taken care of.
Gorgeous grounds, rooms, service.
We requested early check-in and were upgraded to a gorgeous suite when our original room was not ready.
