Spend one night at Oakwood and it's a nice resort our room was great but there was a loud humming noise which we thought it was the heater vents but it was something entirely different. My wife and I were both tired so we fell asleep pretty quick so that wasn't a huge issue. However, we were disappointed to find...

Had lunch to celebrate my birthday today-fabulous service with Brianna and supplemented with the awesome bartender. Brianna has been our server before and she consistently offers friendly, quick and professional service.

We stayed here in Mid March when it was hovering around freezing and below. The lake view room on the 1st afforded a lovely scene and we enjoyed the table and chairs in the room which we shared with a couple who had none because they were on the 3rd floor in a gabled room. The room was large enough...

I planned a weekend retreat for 70 people at the Oakwood, and everything about the experience was outstanding. Julia Schwantes assisted with the planning, and she was incredibly accommodating. The rooms were wonderful, and everyone in our group raved about the quality of the food. Our experience was outstanding, and we're looking forward to planning future retreats with Julia at...

This was my Second year attending a women's retreat at Oakwood. There have been improvements since my stay last year including a fridge included in every room now and the food is much better. The bathrooms have your amenities in the shower hanging on the wall which is great and the atmosphere is overall serene. The housekeeping may just have...

We made a return visit to the Oakwood and, as per usual, we were not disappointed. They are right on the shore of Lake Wawasee, with a tremendous view across the water. They have plenty of free parking. The hotel was remodeled a couple years ago and is tremendous. Visitors still have a flavor of the original, old hotel, while...

This is an excellent location for a family Thanksgiving. Good food. Good accommodations. Attentive staff. Right on the water. Recently remodeled. Interesting location - good for exploring that end of the lake (near Syracuse, IN).

We are frequent guests at this resort during the regular season and have ventured in during the off season for special occasions. This was our first Thanksgiving and it won't be out last!
