We spent two nights here. The property is just beautiful! They have boat rentals, among other toys. The beach area is very inviting. We didn't get a chance to use it because of the temps. It was a very relaxing weekend. Each morning we ordered room service. The breakfast was excellent. It only took about 25 minutes to get to... More

We went up. For the weekend. For a small town every time we got to the resort there was no sign showing us where to register. 40 minutes later we found someone that had us follow him there. Honestly no signs on the road. No carts to bring anything up. Carpets looked awful. Very dirty and old. We paid a... More

Spent 2 days here and it was absolutely fantastic. Dinner was amazing, lunch was great and the rooms unreal. The view is so picture perfect it looks like its right out of 1930s America. The beach is perfect, the water is crystal clear. They offer all kinds of rentals from canoes and kayaks all the way up to pontoon boats.... More

The resort is magnificent looking that could use new carpeting though the bathrooms appear to be updated. Rooms are clean with a frig, coffee pot. Just past the lobby is an open bar area where you can meet your party or just hang out there before going to your room. Popular place for weddings and meetings. It's big enough that... More

This is a beautiful hotel. The rooms are huge, clean and quiet. Every thing is in walking distance. Dining, bars, coffee shop and the lake. The conference room was huge and very well attended to by the staff. Business off season or family in the summer it's a great little town.

Beautiful older resort with many amenities. We were only there 2 nights in the off season for a conference, so we didn't take advantage of what they had to offer. Awesome grounds, attentive housekeeping, welcoming staff. Very comfortable bed and pillows with a spacious bathroom. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. I do wish there were outlets on the...

Stayed with a girlfriend for a night getaway and we felt it was very outdated and generally unclean. This place only survives on its name and location. Unvacuumed floors, hair in tub and sink, dusty tables, scratched woodwork, musty smell, tired decor. We actually walked out of one of the restaurants because we sat at our table for 20 minutes...

We stayed in a two bedroom and the rooms were bright, clean and inviting. The staff is friendly and helpful. The town of Elkhart Lake has activities; music at the Tiki Bar, and pontoon boat rentals to get out on the lake and a great ice cream shop on Lake Street. Very relaxing atmosphere.
