About Dave Schmitz
Hi. I'm Dave Schmitz. I'm a retired Air Force Lt Col and retired Delta pilot. I grew up in Kiel WI (6 miles from Elkhart Lake). Quit Qui Oc golf course (down the street)was my 'home course' for high school golf. I graduated from the Air Force Academy in 1975, flew fighters in the Air Force for 14 years and flew for Delta (Northwest) from 1989 to 2015. You'll quickly realize I was NOT the decorating expert as my wife Helen masterminded and executed that plan. Helen grew up in Arizona (our winter home location) and Southern California and graduated from Long Beach State. She is a recently retired Civil Engineer and was CEO of HH Engineering Ltd in Detroit.
Dave Schmitz purchased this Resort in 1995
Why Dave Schmitz chose
We purchased the unit to ensure access to Elkhart Lake and the Osthoff amenities. The people, attitudes, food, and beer are fantastic- we love it. We were one of the original purchasers in the Osthoff development. Our custom decor and upgrades don't fit the standardized Osthoff rental plan -- hence the VRBO approach. We have chosen to spend our summers in Elkhart Lake and live at Osthoff Greens from June til October.
What makes this Resort unique

Beautiful location and lovely place.
Thanks so much for your review! Elkhart Lake is sort of a hidden destination (unless you’re a racer;)
So happy you enjoyed your stay!
The property is the center of activity for the ELVF weekend.
Mid August 3 Day visit
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Osthoff is in a beautiful setting and the 2 bedroom condo was spacious and clean. My first time using VRBO and everything went smoothly. The extra space was nice for our family. I recommend it.
No AC in guest room?
Makes for some hot nights when there's no AC/ventilation in the bedroom.
Sorry you had an issue. Upstairs BR has supplemental heat exchanger installed which is normally effective in keeping the entire unit comfortable. There is an A/C unit in lower area where BR#2 is located. Both BR's have fans.
We enjoyed staying at the Osthoff. The beds were very comfortable and the unit was very nice.
