My review of The Osthoff Resort is mixed. Our most recent stay ended unpleasantly. We made reservations for a two night stay in a room with a whirlpool tub and tickets for the Old World Christmas Market. Our first evening was very enjoyable; we relaxed, enjoyed the inroom hot tub & slept well. The next day we had breakfast at...

Dear Lynnie M, My sincere apologies for the service lapses you experienced during your most recent stay with us. Your experience does not reflect our mission to deliver the best resort experience to our guests, nor the memorable Osthoff experience you have enjoyed in past stays. We clearly fell short of that unspoken promise. Thank you for letting us know...

We rented 2 side by side, 3 bedroom lakeside deluxe units and they were perfect for our family of 16, 8 adults and 8 children. We made our own breakfast, lunch and snacks in the kitchen/dining area of one of the units. For dinner one night we had room service from Otto's restaurant, a delivery of 5-16 inch pizzas. On...

Went to the hotel with 8 adults and 9 kids in two 3 bedroom suites. Kids enjoyed the pool, hot tub and game room. Dinner at Lola's restaurant for adults was wonderful. Sat and relaxed with drinks in beautiful lounge / bar. Walked around beach area, seems like it would be nice place in summer.

Every single aspect of our experience, including use of the spa and dining at both of the in-house restaurants at the Osthoff, exceeded our expectations. It is our pleasure to give it the highest recommendation.

Just returned from an 8 day visit at the Osthoff Resort. Again the staff was beyond wonderful and very accommodating. We had our very small wedding on Saturday in a small area of the resort with 12 of our family members. The resort was wonderful when family checked in and also during our ceremony. Dinner was fantastic at Otto's and...

This resort is of very high quality and the staff outstanding. EVERYONE was pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. The decor for the holiday season, particularly in the lobby and the Elk Room are wonderfully done and classy. The rooms are far, far superior to most hotel rooms in size, layout, creature comforts and bedding. We slept better than at home!...Of course...

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.
