ODNR and U.S. Hotel and Resort Announce Partnership
Ohio Ag Connection - 06/13/2018

Tuesday the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) in collaboration with U.S. Hotel and Resort Management announced new renovations and acquisitions as U.S. Hotel has officially assumed management of Maumee Bay State Park Lodge and Conference Center. U.S. Hotel will also operate four other lodges including Deer Creek, Mohican, Punderson and Salt Fork which brings their total to eight throughout Ohio (including Burr Oak, Hueston Woods and Shawnee).

"U.S. Hotel is a great partner, and we are excited for them to expand their work with our state park lodges around the state," said ODNR Director James Zehringer. "This is a win-win situation for both ODNR and U.S. Hotel, but most important, this change and new investment will really benefit our guests."

"What started out as a simple quest to get our fourth Ohio State Park has morphed into something we could only have dreamed of," said Tom Biegler, President and CEO of U.S. Hotel and Resort Management. "The Maumee Bay contract was the 'Holy Grail'. We knew that it was the newest of the lodges, but it was also in the most incredible location, sitting on the shore of Lake Erie. This is exactly where we want to be and we're anxious to see where our experience will take us going forward."

One of the major investments U.S. Hotel will make at Maumee Bay is the construction of a "Reunion Cabin" on the shore of Lake Erie. This cabin will accommodate parties of more than 20 with large bedrooms and a state-of-the-art kitchen. U.S. Hotel will also construct additional camping cabins to take advantage of Maumee Bay's beautiful Lake Erie views.

U.S. Hotel and Resort Management began operations at the Maumee Bay Lodge on January 31, 2018 as part of a multi-year contract with ODNR. As part of their bid proposal, U.S. Hotel has committed $2.5 million for property improvements.

Information on updates to the other lodges which U.S. Hotel has acquired will be announced soon.
