We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite and also went to the Aspira spa and had a wonderful experience. This is by far our favorite hotel/spa to go to for our girlfriend getaways. The spa was extremely busy and some appointment times had to get changed, but we received a complimentary glass of wine and discount. The Osthoff has wonderful...

We had a 2 and a half day seminar here and they handled over 300 people easily....in addition to their other guests. Continental breakfast was good. Plenty of coffee and soft drinks and water available. Lunches were provided and we had a banquet which I thought was superb. I did some exploring . Imagine sitting rooms with leather covered chairs...

I stayed it 2 of their 2 bedroom suites. Accommodations were very comfortable, well-maintained, great looking furniture. Beds were very comfortable. These are real suites - kitchen (with dishes, pots/pans, utensils), dining room, living room. The only reason I changed rooms was that I was attending a conference and changed to a room closer to the Conference Center. Staff was...

We were there for a wedding. The Osthoff offers a complete line of services to help you plan a wedding there. For large events one of the benefits of the Osthoff is they have close to 250 rooms. The Resort is on the Lake with its own private beach. We stayed at one of their 1 bedroom condos. The condo...

Best place in town. Make sure you book a lakeview room if available. Take a cruise in the morning along the Elkhart Lake . Although this is mainly a summer resort , I found Fall is extremely beautiful as well. For dining , Otto's has very nice quick bite , Alvarado Turkey wrap , you can't go wrong.

Someones they have things that don't. Not much closet space in our room due to one closet being locked up. Had breakfast and coffee...

The entire experience from the front desk staff to the wedding planner and special events staff, was perfect. The facility is reallly big and can be a challenge to navigate but the staff is very helpful. The great coffee in the Elk Room lounge is a fantastic way to start the day. Room service from Otto's restaurant was also fantastic;...

Somewhat old school, but with modern amenities. Staff, food and beverage, and grounds are all stellar. Beautiful surroundings, particularly with fall foliage. Little to do in the tiny town, but several excellent food opportunities besides the hotel.
