Beautiful large resort. It was a hike from the restaurants back to our room. Hairdryer and whirlpool tub did not work in one of the bathrooms in our suite. I would have expected everything to be in working order in a resort of this caliber. We informed the staff at check out who said we should have called when it...

I stayed here for 11 days. I was a vendor at the Christmas market. Everything was perfect. I'm coming back with my husband. The little town is so cute and I can't say anything bad about the resort. Nice people, beautiful place, clean, festive. Home away from home

Was here only for 1 night; this place is beautiful and massive. Wish I could have stayed longer because there was so much to see and do. Even though I was here for a short time I thought the experience was worth it. Staff was friendly, the catered meals were yummy and the room was spacious and clean. I really...

I was shocked that our room was as dated as it was. There were dirty dishes in the dishwasher in our kitchenette, there was junk on the floor that didn't get vacuumed up, we couldn't turn down the heat, which was at about 78 degrees during our stay, and we could not get a return call from anyone as to...

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.
