Lola Roeh, a 1973 Lakeland graduate and the general manager of The Ostoff Resort in Elkhart Lake, Wis., has been elected to the Lakeland University Board of Trustees. She was elected to a four-year term that will expire in the fall of 2021.
Under Roeh's leadership, The Osthoff has experienced tremendous growth. In 2002 and 2012, the Wisconsin Innkeepers Association presented Roeh with the coveted "Innkeeper of the Year" award.
Roeh is a respected leader in the tourism industry and was appointed chair of the Governor's Council on Tourism. She was originally appointed by former Governor Jim Doyle and appointed for two additional terms by Governor Scott Walker. She serves on the Board of the Wisconsin Hotel and Lodging Association, as well as the national lodging association, the American Hotel and Lodging Association.
Capturing the grandeur of the original Osthoff Hotel, today's resort opened in 1995 and offers all-suite accommodations, four seasons of recreation, stunning scenery and an unmistakable Old World charm.
In 2005, a new wing featuring a 7,500-square-foot conference center, 100-seat restaurant, destination spa and 48 additional two- and three-bedroom suites featuring both lake and woodland views were added. In 2014, The Osthoff added an additional 10,000-square-foot ballroom, bringing the total conference space to 39,500 square feet.
The Osthoff is considered one of the premier resort destinations in the Midwest and has earned the prestigious AAA Four Diamond rating for the past 19 years.
