Fun on the lake. You do not have to travel too far from Chicago for a great resort experience. Close to town. Good drinks. Private beach. Can rent boats and go tubing. Had a great time with friends. Will definitely visit again.

I went to the Osthoff Resort for a two day conference for work. The Osthoff Resort is beautiful and the holiday decorations almost put me in the holiday spirit. A lot of time and energy is put into the facility and it was set up well for our conference. Staff is polite and attentive. The food was very good at... More

Staying at The Osthoff was one of my very best hotel/resort experiences. From reservation to check out, I cannot think of one disappointing thing during the entire time. I would highly recommend The Osthoff to anyone looking for a peacefull get-a-way.

Stayed at the Osthoff for a wine pairing dinner at Lola's restaurant. It was fantastic. The room was really nice and a very comfy bed. Some other reviews say the housekeeping wasn't good but we found everything clean and neat. The staff was very friendly. Have only stayed there once before but will definitely stay there again.

I went to a Women's Retreat with my church and honestly I didn't want to go back home. Besides the fact that I have two small kids, early morning walks at the lake, awesome, quality food provided for us by the resort and the level of service provided by the employees at the resort definitely gave me what I was...

The Osthoff Resort is huge! It is tucked away amid lots of farmland! The customer service at the front desk was pretty good...although she could have explained a little better how to get to our room...there was construction. Once we got to the room we were very impressed. Nice big suite with full kitchen...stocked with utensils....pretty much everything you need!... More

5 ladies spent a girls weekend at the Osthoff Resort. The 3 bedroom condo we rented was very nice. Our visit was in November so we're thinking about coming in the Spring or Summer because we would have more to do outdoors. This visit was for rest and mission was accomplished.

I had previously had been to the Osthoff in the winter time with my girlfriend. At that time, we had a 1 bedroom suite. We had a good enough time that we decided to return at the end of August with my family. This time we had a 2 bedroom loft suite. There was a convention going on which flooded... More

That's it. Just amazing. Everything. The rooms, restaurants, views, staff, spa, location....so quiet and peaceful in November, which is really what we were looking for. Oh and we will definitely go back, as soon as possible as many times as possible. Maybe summer next time. The lake was crystal clear.
