Elkhart Lake Archives – Crown Cruise Vacations
Once upon a time, Otto Osthoff brought his sick wife Paulina to Elkhart Lake in hopes that the peaceful place and rejuvenating waters might restore her health. They did.
So Otto did what any smart loving husband would do. In 1886, he opened a resort with room for 120 guests near the Wisconsin lake. Now his wife and family and guests could relax and enjoy to their heart’s content.
