Our room was AWESOME! Very clean and inviting! Plenty of windows with a view, we were on the end unit toward the water. Everything about our entire weekend was wonderful. We were staying for a wedding and everyone was so friendly and helpful.

Quiet, clean, relaxing

We just stayed at the Oakwood in Syracuse, Indiana overlooking the beautiful Lake Wawasee. We had our children and grandchildren and everyone had a blast! The Back Porch restaurant overlooking the water was excellent with something to offer everyone. The beach area was a lot of fun for the grandkids with kayaks and children’s kayaks available free of charge. We also took advantage of the free s’mores package and the kids loved it! Beautiful location, lovely quaint town and less than 30 minutes to the Amish center of town in Shipshewana. We will definitely be back!

Great times!

I knew we were in for a great weekend as soon as I walked into the room! Comfortable, spacious and inviting,the room was exceptional and had a great view of the lake. It was a jacuzzi suite with a king bed, sofa, table with two chairs, and several bureaus with lots of drawer space and room was not crowded at all. We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary and they had a card and some Italian Sparkling wine waiting for us! We loved it here so much we are bringing my parents back in July. Thanks for making our celebration so special!

Fabulous Romantic Getaway!

A hidden gem in Indiana! This resort is perfect for a family, couples or friends. We selected a room with a lake view and were not disappointed. The room was large, included a [sleeper] sofa, a table with chairs, an armoire, a refrigerator, a Keurig coffee pot and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was roomy with soft, large towels, equipped with soaps, lotions, shampoo and conditioner in wall mounted dispensers. There was also a seperate sink and mirror outside the bathroom so more than one person could get ready at once. BUT..the best part of immaculate, clean room was the window with a view of the beach and the lake. Loved it!

Excellent Experience

This resort sits right on the lake and the setting is something out of a book. I recognize that we were here during the off season so the setting was so quiet and peaceful. Three of us stayed in a two queen suite. There was plenty of room. Great sitting area for cocktails with a view of the lake. The beds were comfy with great linens. The staff couldn’t have been more accommodating and friendly. There is a nice workout room, a game room for kids and a library. I’d go back.

Gorgeous Setting

Our suite was beautiful! We overlooked lake Wawasee, which was a frozen wonderland. The hotel was impressive and Grand! Staff everywhere were gracious and helpful. This hotel exceeded everything we could have hoped for. We had the best time and loved every minute of it. HATS off to them!! 10-star experience! Thank you.

Most Awesome time!

My husband and I went here for our 20th anniversary and it was very nice. I had a very relaxing message when we arrived that set the atmosphere for a real relaxing stay. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. The view of the lake was amazing. It is located in a very rural area but has stores and restaurants not far away. The staff was very helpful and friendly. There is a very nice restaurant located downstairs that has great food and live music. We really enjoyed our stay. The bed was big and comfortable. Very modern and up to date accommodations.

We were in town for the weekend and decided to stay away from the hustle and bustle of a chain hotel. I found the Oakwood Resort and I was pleasantly surprised that the room rate was very reasonable. I was greeted at check-in by a very nice young man. Per my advance request, our room was on an upper floor away from noise. The room was very clean and free of smoke or other odors. The bed was comfy!!! Unfortunately, our stay was cut short and we were not charged for our 2nd-night reservation!!! I highly recommend the Oakwood Resort!!!!!! This place would be an outstanding wedding venue or mini-vacation!!

This place is a GEM

Our family came to celebrate my birthday at this wonderful resort. I loved that there was a free sunset cruise and free kayaks to enjoy! The Oakwood was so friendly and welcoming. They even had sparkling wine and pretty Oakwood Resort wine glasses as a gift for my birthday in our room with a great lake view. The sunset cruise was fun seeing all the gorgeous homes and hearing some of the history of Lake Wawasee. The food was delicious and served fast and with a smile. I have already told my family that for my birthday next year I just want to stay longer at the Oakwood Resort!

Love this Beautiful Resort!

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.

Sad to leave and considered 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 attended a company Christmas party at the resort.  The staff was attentive and very professional.  The food served was amazing.  Everything was clean and decorations were beautiful.

Great Company Christmas Party!

I’m sure you know, but it’s nice to hear when other people are aware of the gems you have – your event coordinators!  They do miracles and they smile while doing it!  I am the Conference Coordinator and have organized MANY conferences.  I am truly IMPRESSED with your staff.

…your event coordinators are gems!

We wanted to say THANK YOU again for the time, patience, and help you put into making our wedding day absolutely perfect!  The little things helped us feel very cared for.  We will always cherish the memories!

Bride & Groom, September 2017

We booked many rooms in this hotel for a wedding in the area. We had never been there, so trusted by the hotel website that it would be adequate. It was more than that! Each guest that came to the wedding and stayed there raved about the beauty of the hotel in general, the rooms, the price, etc. Everyone was very pleased that we had chosen the Oakwood Resort as a place to stay during the festivities. The staff was kind and helpful and accommodated all of our needs.

Our wedding guests raved…

I love this place. Rooms are clean and very nice. The restaurant is excellent inside and out on the patio. Great place for family pictures as well.

Great place for family pictures

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!

Already re-booked 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
