Lauren Zeugner of The Mail-Journal reports that the property has been sold to Dr. Rex Parent, a Fort Wayne opthamologist who owns a home on the east end of Lake Wawasee. Parents two sons, JR and Jason, are said to have experience in construction and operating retirement homes. They plan to reopen the hotel and restaurant by next summer.
Ian Rolland, the receiver for Oakwood, has also reached an agreement with the Wawasee Area Conservancy Foundation regarding piers. The agreement is said to nullify an appeal before the Department of Natural Resources. A new pier permit will be sought.
Zeugner is continuing to gather information on this developing story and we will have her report as it becomes available.
