SANDUSKY, Ohio — Cedar Fair, the company that owns Cedar point, announced Thursday that it has acquired neighboring Sawmill Creek Resort.

The 235-acre resort is located in Huron and boasts 28 acres of waterfront property as well as a marina and a half-mile beach. It also features a resort with both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, three restaurants, 18-hole golf course and conference center.

The resort is about a 12-minute drive just east of Cedar Point.

Cedar Fair President and CEO Richard Zimmermann gave the following statement in a news release Wednesday:

“We are excited about the opportunity to add Sawmill Creek to our growing portfolio of resort properties serving Cedar Point, Cedar Point Shores Waterpark and the Cedar Point Sports Center, which is currently being expanded to include an indoor sports facility. Along with Hotel Breakers, Cedar Point’s Express Hotel, Castaway Bay Indoor Waterpark Resort and Lighthouse Point, Sawmill Creek’s 236-room resort lodge strengthens both Cedar Point’s and the Sandusky area’s appeal as a unique and adventurous vacation destination.”

Cedar Fair said it plans to renovate the property over the course of the next two years.
