“overnite stay at the Osthoof Resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

the resort was beautiful. Almost like stepping back in time but with modern day amenities. Staff was helpful, friendly and courteous. Food at the two restaurants was good- room was nice-had a mini suite-nothing special.

We have been going the The Osthoff Resort for 7 years and our experiences get better and better with every stay! We have gone with a group of up to 45 ladies for a spa weekend, as well as just 2 of us and all of our accommodations have met our expectations. The housekeeping service is friendly and prompt. We have had the options of cooking for ourselves or dining at one of the restaurants on site, which are very good. The spa itself is fantastic, inviting and relaxing. We are always on the lookout for deals to go here and we are always looking forward to our next stay.

Amazing... very relaxing, spacious, and luxurious. Also, with a beautiful view of Elkhart Lake. Wonderful place, incredibly friendly people, and very clean and quiet. Always enjoy coming down to the races and staying here.

Because of a two-day conference, I spent two nights at the beautiful Osthoff Resort. I had a spacious one-bedroom condo overlooking the courtyard with a view of Elkhart Lake. The bathroom was roomy with a whirlpool tub, shower stall, granite counters and Kohler fixtures. (No wonder there, Kohler Co. is located nearby!) The rooms were nicely appointed with flat screen TVs, a fireplace in the living area, a balcony, and kitchenette. The place was clean, the bed was relaxing. Although we were far away from the elevator, footsteps and showers from the rooms overhead or next door could be heard, but it was not too distracting.

Room Tip: If possible, ask for a renovated room; the hotel is updating rooms all the time.

Everything we were looking for in a weekend getaway. Great facility and beautiful grounds. Make sure to stay in the "new" wing. Rooms were recently overhauled and very nice. Deluxe king with whirpool suite was great value. Will be back.

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...
