Loudonville, Ohio, August 16, 2014 – Fall ushers in cool, crisp nights and warm, wonderful days – the perfect setting for our seventh annual Log Cabin Days Friday, September 12 and Saturday, September 13. Attracting over 3,000 people nationwide, this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever. And, it’s a free admission family event that everyone enjoys!
This year will again be highlighted by the popular Log Cabin Tour – a rare opportunity to visit up to eight homes and talk candidly to homeowners about the relaxing log home lifestyle and what makes it so special. This self-guided auto tour is only $10 per person (suggested donation) with proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. In addition to the eight private residences, you can visit our two, on-site models free.
Two fun-filled days of family activities also include the always popular Lumberjack Show where professionals compete in axe throwing, wood chopping and crosscut sawing events; seminars addressing log home topics; booth exhibits containing log home style furniture, decorations and furnishings, builders and craftsmen; and a landscape layout. You’ll also see authentic hand-hewing, hand-peeling, and blacksmith demos; competitive log stacking and chain saw carving. An antique steam engine will be in operation sawing lumber from logs.
The seminar speakers include: Ashley Weaver of Farm Credit, who will talk about log home financing; a representative from Hochstetler Milling will discuss maintenance; Bill Dinkins, Hochstetler Milling, who will discuss what you need to know about log homes in “Log Basics 101”; Steve Lykins, Hochstetler Milling, who will discuss, in-depth, floor plan design. These seminars are all free and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
New this year is the “Plan your Dream” log home design workshop. Bring in your sketches and ideas and have Steve Lykins and Bill Dinkins help you get started. Call now for details and reservations. This is a first-come, first-served opportunity for a limited number of people.
Since Log Cabin Days is a true family event we’ve tried to include lots of activities for kids, too. They will, no doubt, be fascinated by our small petting zoo with a chance to visit up-close farm animals like a pony, a calf, puppies, rabbits and kittens. Or, they can play “gold-digger” and sift thru shavings for nickels and candy. Perhaps they’d like to go on the horse drawn covered wagon ride through the woods.
Except for the Log Home Tour and Design Workshop most events and seminars are free.
A small 13’x24′ log cabin will once again be built during the show and auctioned off at 4 pm on Saturday. This one bedroom cabin is perfect as a guest, hunting, or fishing getaway and can be transported down the road.
The “Silent Auction” includes many unique, one-of-a-kind items like a handmade Amish quilt, rustic furniture, lamps, bird houses, and assorted crafts. Bidding ends at 3 pm Saturday.
No all-day family event would be complete without some authentic old-fashioned,
mouth-watering, finger-lickin’ food – and this is no exception. Delicious barbecue chicken, noodles, potato salad, kettle-cooked baked beans and a variety of pies highlight the menu. There is also homemade ice cream, fresh-squeezed apple cider, apple butter and kettle-cooked popcorn to tempt your taste buds. Fresh produce, locally-made Swiss cheese, trail bologna, jams, jellies and a Bake Sale featuring homemade bread, fry pies and pastries will also be available.
Come join us at 552 Hwy. 95, approximately 5 miles north of Loudonville, Ohio.
