5 The Osthoff Resort

Travelers feel blissfully off the radar when nestled in at this 240-room property located on the shores of a glacially formed lake in a village with less than 1,000 residents. Food is a major focus here: the resort’s restaurants source produce from local farmers and an on-site garden, and guests can sign up for classes—followed by lengthy family-style dinners—at the L’ecole de la Maison Cooking School. Wellness also gets a significant nod thanks to a 20,000-square-foot spa with a meditation sanctuary and café. Rooms with marble bathrooms, new TVs, and updated light fixtures are all part of a recent renovation in the main and south wings.
