We stayed for two nights to attend a friends wedding and everything was AMAZING!!! I am VERY picky and this hotel is immaculate! I went to the spa and it was unreal. They are so professional and think of every detail. The food was equally amazing. The views and the whole resort is perfect. It was a perfect romantic getaway... More

I had always heard about the Jazz on the Vine at the Osthoff Resort, but I had the pleasure of going this Mother's Day Weekend 2014. OMG!!! What a good time. We had a ball and the weather was great (thanks to GOD). Will go back next year. The service, food, amenities are great. FYI, get there early because everyone... More

Stayed at the Osthoff Resort for a convention. They did an outstanding job. The food provided for our convention was very good. My room, a 3 bedroom suite was perfect. I felt like a queen in my king sized bed surrounded by all the soft comfy pillows. Was impressed with all the individual seating areas scattered around the facility. Many... More

We were only able to stay one night, and left wishing we had at least a couple more days to explore this amazing location....both on the resort, and in town. We really enjoyed the Elk Room and the great deck overlooking the lake....perfect for drinks at sunset. And our one bedroom suite (although we didn't spend too much time in... More

We loved our couples weekend at the Osthoff. We spent time at the spa, took a cooking class and also signed up for a private yoga session and loved everything. The cooking class was fun, hands on and we learned a lot and met some fantastic people. The spa was super relaxing!! We also took a hike around the scenic... More

Stayed here while testing at Road America. We had been told the Osthoff was a "nice place", after staying with them I would call that an understatement. A picturesque resort set directly on Elkhart Lake, the room I stayed in was more like a small apartment with a kitchen, 2 BR, 2 Bathroom, fireplace, nice living room. The hotel was... More

I stayed in a very comfortable one bedroom suite - the bed was so comfortable and the pillows were like heaven. It had all of the comforts of home. I didn't expect to have a complete kitchen with full size appliances and every necessity. The living room had a wonderful fireplace and comfy sofa. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly.... More

As first time visitors for a family wedding to the this resort, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodations, food, amenities of our suite, quiet rooms, comfortable beds (great pillows!), quaint nooks and attractive dining/bar areas. Our rating would have been a 5 if the fitness center was at the level of all the other accommodations. Huge... More

Loved sharing this beautiful resort with family after their long winter in the Midwest. Since it was raining we spent our time indoors at the pool and both restaurants and bar and our gorgeous suite! Yes, spa and front desk could connect a bit more for better customer assistance but the Aspire Spa is gorgeous and relaxing. The grounds and... More

My girlfriend and I went for 3 days and loved every minute. We hiked around the crystal clear lake, and went to the spa. The accommodations were excellent and very service oriented. A great setting to kick back and relax or hike, bike, spa. We had a 2 BR 2 Bath condo with balcony...will go back. Enjoyed it all.
