A recent stay at the Otesaga reaffirmed our opinion that this is one of America's time-treasured
vacation resorts. Spending an afternoon in a rocking chair on the hotel veranda is an experience not to be missed. This is a classy resort where men are required to wear jackets for evening in the dining room. We were there on the modified American plan which included breakfast each morning and dinner each evening. Breakfast consisted of a large buffet which offered everything one could possibly want for breakfast. If an item wasn't readily available on the buffet (such as poached eggs), one word to the server brought the freshly prepared desired dish to the table. The dinner menu offered a variety of main dishes from steak, to fish, to duck, to vegetarian selections. Dinner did seem a bit precooked, and mashed potatoes appeared to have been sitting for awhile on the plate. Prices are high, and one pays for the spectacular setting right on Lake Otesaga. Guests need to be very specific about room location. Many rooms do not have a view of the lake. Try not to be placed on the second floor overlooking the veranda roof. There are fun opportunities for water activities on the lake, and golfing is highly desirable. If you've got the time and the money, this is a great stay!
