Our first visit to The Osthoff was filled with disappointments in summer. Dirty, loud, no quiet areas for adults at any pool, heating issues. Do to the concern of the director of the Osthoff when I voiced my concerns in a survey we were invited to revisit the resort. We came back in Fall after the craziness of the summer...

Stayed here for the second year in a row now, & it just keeps getting better. Our server/bartender at Otto's couldn't have been sweeter, & the room is exquisite as always! I can't wait to come here again!

We've used the Osthoff for corporate weekend retreats for almost a decade. The group rates are great, communications with staff are amazing, and the venue itself is welcoming and well kept up. These are guestrooms that are owned and rented out, combined in the same building with two restaurants, a spa, a great cooking classroom, and first class service. We...

My husband and I recently were married at the Osthoff Resort and we could not have been happier with our venue! The resort was the perfect family weekend getaway and extremely accommodating to our guests. There was something for everyone between the restaurants, bars, spa, pools and arcade. Our wedding coordinator, Ellie, was fabulous and made sure everything went smoothly....

Christmas day has been a gathering time for our family at the Osthoff Resort in Elkhart Lake for many years. We rent a 3 bedroom 3 bath condo for approximately $400 per night. This year the condo fell extremely short of our expectations. Unit #370 was very outdated with worn, soiled carpeting, furniture and appliances. The dishwasher was full of...
