  • Upon arrival, we were taken aback by how beautiful this place was. Check-in was such a pleasant experience because the staff was beyond friendly. Once we got to our room, we were amazed at how tastefully done and clean it was. I have to mention the bed as well… SO comfortable! The view was spectacular and the food at the restaurant was beyond amazing!  We were sad to leave and seriously considered just moving in.

  • Amazing find!  We happened upon this place looking for a quiet, romantic spot for our anniversary.  We were not disappointed. The staff was so friendly and went above and beyond to make our stay special. The room and view were so comfy and romantic; just what we had hoped for! What a great place! Can’t say enough positive things about it.

    A quiet, romantic spot for our Anniversary.

  • I loved this place. We attended a wedding here in May. This place is right on a lake with a beautiful view every way you look. It’s quite and peaceful. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. I loved the beds! Never slept that well on a trip. The staff all of them were extremely friendly and helpful. This would be a great place to go on a get away weekend. Highly recommended!

    …I’ve never slept so well on a trip!

  • Just spent the most wonderful weekend at Oakwood Resort. I goofed up my dates for my sister’s birthday day weekend but they were able to find a room for us. Loved the room! Beds were sooooooooo comfortable. We slept great! Dinner at The Pier was amazing. The Beef and Reef had a steak that melted in your mouth.

    Since the spa was busy Sat, we scheduled massages on Sun. There was only 1 masseur on schedule but they had one on call. We had the best massages. Great finish to the wonderful weekend. Already rebooked another weekend!

  • I normally do not post reviews of anything, but the Thanksgiving Buffet we had today was unforgettable. The ambiance of the solarium where we were seated was just perfect, with a lovely view out the tall windows overlooking Lake Wawasee . The food magnificent. All the Thanksgiving favorites were there, and the carrot cake and pumpkin pie for dessert, were the best. The wait staff was very attentive and responsive to all our requests. We are from Fort Wayne and enjoyed the ride up to the Oakwood and the great scenery of Lake Wawasee. I would recommend this buffet to anyone. Thank you Oakwood !

    Beautiful Thanksgiving Buffet

  • I visited both the Oakwood Resort and The Pier & Back Porch on both Labor Day and Memorial Day weekends. The location is very serene and beautiful. It is quite calming compared to the bustle of city life. The staff here are friendly and attentive to my needs. Always greeted and getting the biggest grins when I’m walking in. The food is always awesome. The salmon and the burgers here are to die for. Not to mention the bands that come in. Both times I was there they had local bands playing and they really rocked it. I’ll definitely be coming back here again soon!

    The location is very serene and beautiful

  • A real restaurant & menu. Very comfortable. A simple menu but all great options. The salads are each amazing. Siracha Caesar & Arugula with apple cider vinaigrette and beets!!! Yum!

    Best food in the lake
  • We loved our meals and the service was fantastic! The menu offered a variety of options from salmon to steak to duck. The cocktail menu is fabulous! We sat on the porch and enjoyed a lovely meal with perfect weather. Our meals all came out together and our waitress was speedy and attentive.

    Great place!

  • We recently had our company Christmas party at Oakwood Resort. The staff was extremely helpful in coordinating with us for our event. The facility is immaculate. You can tell they take pride in maintaining their resort. Our event was executed perfectly by the Oakwood team. Every team member we came in contact was extremely courteous and made us feel like they were delighted we were their guests. Their hospitality can’t be beat. We will definitely return for our future events.

    The facility is immaculate
  • This resort was a beautiful place to relax. The rooms are modern and have a “beachy” theme. They even have a Keurig machine in each room.
    There is a beach with fine sand, lots of play area for kids, rentals for the water and bike rentals. There is also a tour boat that goes out in the evening, which is free to resort guests. It takes you all around the lake and the captain will give a lot of historical information that is quite interesting.
    The food at the restaurant was really tasty. We enjoyed everything about this resort and would definitely go back.

    Beautiful, Peaceful Getaway

  • My husband and I took a weekend trip to Oakwood and was pleasantly surprised as to how lovely the resort was. Our room was so lovely and overlooked the water. It was extremely relaxing and beautiful. Everyone at the resort was lovely as well. I had a fantastic facial and massage at the on site spa. I highly recommend this resort and want a quiet weekend.

    Wonderful, relaxing resort

  • I feel really strongly about The Oakwood. My husband and I married there ten years ago, and they’ve only gotten better over time. It’s beautiful inside – so cottagey and clean and stylish. The beds are way comfy. The lakeside restaurant is a lot of fun. But the best thing, I think, is how the whole place feels like one big family reunion. They are very dog friendly (thank you, thank you Oakwood!) and kid friendly. You end up talking to other people, swimming with them at the beach, joking with them over cocktails on the lawn. It’s just kind of effortlessly wonderful and welcoming, like the lake property you’ve always wanted, just waiting for you to drop in. My husband’s family has a condo on Lake Wawasee where we can stay for free, but we always make a point to stay at The Oakwood once or twice a summer because we love it so much.

    Room Tip: I would recommend paying a little extra for a lake view.

  • Our company held a 2 day off site meeting for the leadership team. Oakwood Resort was the perfect location! The facility/room was perfect for our needs and the food served to our group for breakfast and lunch was delicious and abundant. We took a cruise around the lake after dinner one of the evenings. We enjoyed all aspects of the resort, including the opportunity to meet outdoors in the shade of the gazebo. The rooms were so quaint and spacious. I had everything I needed to have a productive and relaxing 2 days! And although there was lots of activity going on at the beach, etc. the environment was surprisingly quiet and very conducive to productive conversation. I will be bringing my family back to visit soon!

    Two days of delight!
