Ostoff Resort has been referred to as the “Disney of Elkhart Lake,” as it is the main accommodation in Elkhart Lake with countless amenities. The Osthoff is a AAA Four Diamond premier vacation destination with gorgeously manicured lakefront grounds. Lounge chairs line the soft, shallow, sandy beach, where the area’s natural beauty shines. Water sports, indoor and outdoor pools, whirlpools, a volleyball court and arcade provide plenty of opportunities for family bonding time.
Kids can’t get enough of the Pleasures Program activities. Moms and dads love the cooking school, world-class spa, onsite dining options and outdoor bar with live music. This is a family-friendly gem in the Midwest where simple pleasures, like bonfires on the beach with S’mores, rule.
Suites range from modest to quite large, some with kitchens and washers and dryers. While the rooms are a little dated, they are accommodating and the overall feel of the resort is quite relaxing.

I attended a conference here for several days. the room I had was a suite and it was great. Had a mini kitchen and gas fire place. Was within easy walking distance to the conference center. I ordered room service for dinner and that was very good and prompt delivery. The pool and hot tub were adequate but not great. I was surprised to find the small room that had gaming machines. Parking is a problem here. Get here early.

Very serene this time of year, picturesque and friendly staff. Appears that updates are being made throughout this hotel. I can tell the guest relations training is superb, there is an uncompromised standard!
