I was here for a conference and stayed two nights. The rooms are large, clean, comfortable and updated. Each room has a living room with kitchenette, a separate bedroom and a deck with a table and two chairs. Our room had a great view of the lake, but even those that don't have a view of the large landscaped courtyard...

I have never heard of this resort. Have lived in Wisconsin for most of my life. What a pleasant surprise this resort is. I stayed here overnight for a meeting and I have found this to be the nicest resort in the state. The hotel and conference area is very high end with fireplaces tucked away in various places throughout...

Stayed for 2 night in Oct. Found the food to be great and the service very good. Room was neat and clean. Room has kitchen, but don't plan to use it for much because it is not equipped for any real cooking.

The Osthoff Resort is very beautiful. I wish the weather had been nicer but the sun managed to peak through the clouds allowing me to observe the cranes gliding over the water in the evening sun light! The suites are fabulous and clean. I was there for a conference and they are on the ball when it comes to serving...

We spent a weekend at the Ostoff for the Harvest Moon Ball event. It was outstanding; the resort has a gracious old time Wisconsin resort feel, and the setting is very beautiful. The weekend featured ballroom dancing to a live band, dance lessons and several meals. We especially enjoyed the dance lessons! The resort is set right on the lake,...

I got to spend 2 incredible days on a "Girls Only" weekend. We celebrated 2 birthdays by getting the most relaxing massage. All 4 of us were so impressed with the services we recieved that day.

The Osthoff has been a favorite of ours for several years now. It is classy, beautiful and has a gorgeous setting overlooking Elkhart Lake. This was our first time staying in a room instead of a two bedroom suite. The suites are the size of a home and the Superior Room we stayed in was much larger than an average...

The location of the resort is somewhat secluded...however the staff and the property is well kept and the staff has been excellent. The food is also well done and on time, every time. If you want to have a great corporate retreat with meeting space for approximately 300-400 people with overnight requirements... This is a good place. Thank you!
