“18th wedding anniversary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

My husband and I went to Oakwood for 1 night for our anniversary. The room was very big and furnished beautifully. The whole resort and outside areas were clean and beautiful also. We sat outside on rocking chairs looking at the lake which was very relaxing. Everyone working here is super friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable, and I have trouble with beds so this was a huge plus for me. The room was huge also and we could look out at the lake from our 2nd story room. I didn't want to go home because it was such a great experience. We got way more than our money's worth and I highly recommend the inn to everyone. Definitely romantic and peaceful. Everything we wanted.

Lovely small resort in the process of getting ready for the summer crunch. Very friendly staff. Comfortable beds in large, spacious rooms. Relaxing environment. Resort on a point overlooking Lake Wawasee.

We wanted a few days to get away for my wife's 60th birthday. This place came up on an internet offer and we called direct and booked three night but we were not sure what to expect... it was a great deal and sometimes you get what you pay for! Not the case we got MORE than we ever expected! All I can say is WOW what a great resort the room, restaurant and the bar all 5 star. Very quiet and clean.
We understand it is off season and not busy, but this place would be a wonderful spot for a summer vacation. It is located on the water with outside patio. An last but not least We must comment on the Friendly and accommodating staff...Todd at the front desk and Teddy the great bar tender! Thanks for making the Birthday, one to remember.

Room Tip: Room 240 was great ... I would request it again

I recently stayed at the Oakwood Resort for a girls weekend and it was fantastic! We started off with mani/pedis at the spa. The ladies there were super nice and accomodating. Make sure you call ahead to book your appointments, they said they are super busy during the summer months with weddings. Our room was awesome, very nicely decorated, like we were really on a beach vacation! The beds are soo comfortable too! We had a great time just catching up with each other, the weather wasn't great to be outside at all, so there isn't much else to do around the area. Dinner was great at the restaurant, cozy, yet elegant. 1/2 price martini's didn't hurt either! They had a band that night too, which was nice to "let loose" a bit! I was a bit worried that it was going to be loud sleeping since we saw so many dogs earlier in the day, but I never heard them throughout the night. Overall, we had a great, relaxing time! Would be great for larger parties, or even family lake weekends with the boat.

We needed to be in the northern Indiana area for a meeting and got the opportunity to book the Oakwood Resort for a night. The experience was great. We plan to return to the Oakwood Resort this summer and some friends will join us for a fun filled weekend.

We spent a Saturday night here for our 17th wedding anniversary celebration and couldn't have been more pleased. The property is beautiful. The view from our room was gorgeous. And, though it was a little chilly outside, inside was so warm & inviting. The food was delicious. Every staff member we met was friendly, professional, and seemed genuinely engaged in their jobs. We didn't book early enough to take advantage of one of the packages offered but hope not to make that mistake next time! The room was sparkling clean. The bed was incredibly comfortable. But, we were most amazed by how quiet and peaceful it was. The hotel was full but we felt very secluded in our room.

Room Tip: Book a lake view room!

Even though my husband and I (and dog) were only there for two days--it was fantastic and memorable. The staff (Emily and Steve to highlight) were amazing as was the entire staff. The resort was beautiful, food was excellent, setting superb and the food was fantastic.
We have a large white german shepherd and the resort is pet friendly--dogs of any size! Pono loved it and the staff loved him and spoiled him with attention. We didn't want to leave...well done!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are new! But, if you have a dog--we were in #120--which was beautiful, a bit of an...
