We spent the weekend at the Osthoff Resort with the family and had a great time. The wait for the room was a little long however the lobby was spacious enough for everyone to be able to relax in. The staff was very courteous.

My wife and I stayed with another couple in one of their two bedroom lake view suites on 11/11/14. We were going to the Old World Market held on the property, (We weren't impressed with the market, but that's another review) We found the staff very friendly and the room with a fireplace, refrigerator, etc. clean and comfortable.

Beautiful snow covered grounds. Fires glowing in multiple fireplaces as you move around the property. Superb spa, good indoor pool and work out room. A wonderful winter escape. Everything connected with indoor walkways. A turn around most every corner finds a cozy nook with a fireplace. Enough activities, good food and beverage, and a relaxing atmosphere.

This resort is beautiful! Because of the nature of the visit, several different room types were available to choose from. They offered a good competitive rate for the wedding, and our room was perfect. A one bedroom suite that fit our four person family perfectly. The restaurant and bar were very good, albeit slightly overpriced, but it is so easy...

A short 2 hour plus ride from home brought us to this beautiful property. It was off-season, with alot of action in the hotel but felt empty and was a great place to relax. The shared suite was beautifully appointed: sound-proof private bedrooms, great beds & whirlpool tubs, with a shared living room that had a fireplace, balcony & a...

When we first moved to IL from NY, we were nervous we wouldn't find any of those quaint tucked-away towns that we loved so much on the East Coast. We were wrong! Elkhart Lake, and The Osthoff, are amazing. First, the hotel. As many others have said, the property is beautiful. Even covered in snow, it is very well-kept. The...

The Osthoff is the ultimate family hotel with kid's camp, pools and a game room. There is no better place to stay with young children or for a family reunion. The resort offers great food and there are fantastic restaurants near by.

What a fantastic place to stop if you need a quick retreat!! From the size of the suite which was impeccably clean, to the extensive grounds to walk around, the Aspira Spa with professional services, and a wonderful bed to sleep in....I can't help but give this a perfect review.

We have been going here for the past five years while visiting the Kohler Christmas Bazaar. It's location makes it ideal for a relaxing weekend with friends.

I always enjoy staying at the Osthoff Resort. The suite was incredible, the food at Otto's was great and the grounds are always well groomed and look fantastic any time of year. This is one of the best unknown wonders in Wisconsin. Not a lot of people know about the Osthoff and it truly is a gem. It is nicely...
