“Relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

The best kept place in Wisconsin. I was on a womens retreat and stayed at the Osthoff Resort for the first time. Beautiful view, room was very nice and the food was good. I am planning on another visit, since I did not get the opportunity to have a Spa day. Love the bed and the view from my room.

My husband and I have been here twice for our summer getaway. We had such a good time the first time we were almost afraid to go back, thinking it was a fluke. I'm happy to say it was not. The hotel is just beautiful, with multiple swimming pools (inside and out), a small arcade, a spa, two restaurants, a coffee bar, a small private beach, and a volleyball net. You can also rent all kinds of sports equipment from water sports to bikes. Both times we got a woodland deluxe suite, which has a small outdoor patio, and is basically a smart apartment with a kitchen, eating area, living room, and separate bedroom. There are also two TVs, which is a bonus, and a jacuzzi tub. The town of Elkhart Lake is very small but it has a handful of nice restaurants, and Sheboygan is very close by with more choices.

Room Tip: The cheaper "woodland" rooms are great, but there is only a small parking lot to accommoda...

My husband and I stayed the night in a woodland suite, which was a beautiful room with an amazing view. We dined at Lola's for dinner and Otto's for breakfast. Everything was wonderful. I highly recommend the Osthoff & we will be back!!

Room Tip: Ask for the renovated part of the resort. Our room faced the lake, which was a gorgeous view.

We enjoyed the Osthoff very much for our recent anniversary trip. We had a wonderful courtyard suite in the newest building near Lola's on the Lake, the fine dining restaurant on site. The room was very inviting, king bed comfy and the bathroom great with the two person soaker/jetted tub. The only complaint we had was that our room didn't get cleaned which was disappointing. Housekeeping stated our privacy sign was out, but that wasn't the case since we didn't even know where the sign was. Anyway, we are planning a winter getaway to this resort with another couple since we liked it so much Lola's was good too. I have eaten at better fine dining restaurants, but Char the bartender was delightful to talk to and made it worth it.

Room Tip: Lovely view from the courtyard side.

We love going here once a year, usually on our anniversary, for a couples getaway. The rooms are awesome and the ameneties are great! Next year, we are planning on taking our two young boys there for our week-long summer vacation. We can't wait!

Beautiful condos with lots of room to share and spread out. I was there for a conference and the resort was lovely. It is large, however, a spread out so be sure to have your walking shoes. Meeting facility was adequate, not great. Meals were very good. It was a little hard to find the check-in as all the buildings look the same. The views of the lake are spectacular, only hindered by rain. Is a great place for a group or a get-away!

A surprise weekend for my wife included the Aspire Spa @ Osthoff on Elkhart Lake. First trip here so what I knew about Elkhart Lake was Road America and Quit Qui Oc, Golf Club, both fantastic in their own rights. I was amazed at the size of the resort and the amenities and size of the rooms. We're talking Kohler fixtures, granite counter tops, whirlpool baths, down duvet comforters and beds that would fit the oversized. We had fantastic service from the minute we arrived. A young man that checked us in then proceeded to take our luggage to our room was extremely knowledgeable about the hotel business as well as the surrounding area. This young man will do well in any business he chooses to enter. Osthoff would be wise to keep him.
Aspire Spa was well, Really Good! My wife had the Infused with Spirit treatments followed by the Chakra balancing massage. We've been fortunate to travel a bit and this spa treatment according to her was one of the best. Kohler beware......I had a build your own 80 minute massage and the therapist, Serena was awesome. When I tell people I'd like a deep tissue massage they normally stop at halfway into the muscle. Not this therapist, awesome.
The resort deserves your business if you're heading to this part of the state looking for a relaxing weekend.

Room Tip: Look on their website then cal and see if they have an unpublished rate. Ask for a courtyard view, w...
