3558382142_73bfd0178b_zOhio is beautiful at any time of year. In our part of Ohio, in Logan, we love spending our free time in nature. There are so many places for our locals and visitors to explore that we all recommend them to each other if we have found somewhere new and amazing. One place that isn’t new but extraordinary is Tar Hollow State Park, in Laurelville. This is a premier spot for those who love to be outdoors. Not sure what to do at Tar Hollow State Park? Here at Inn at Cedar Falls, we love exploring new places, especially Tar Hollow State Park. Here are our top 6 favorite things to do while at Tar Hollow State Park.

The top of our list of favorite things to do at Tar Hollow State Park is hiking. The first option in hiking is not for the faint at heart. The Logan Boy Scout Trail. In Tar Hollow State Park, this trail is marked by red blazes and is 21 miles and will give you a view of the whole park and the forest. While this may be a long trail, it is one where you certainly will see everything. Another option is Ross Hollow Hiking Trail. This one is marked with yellow blazes and is an easier 4.9 miles. It starts near the camp and not only will you get to see amazing views of Tar Hollow State Park, this trail also gives you access to the Tar Hollow hills. The last trail is a section of the iconic Buckeye Trail. This will be marked by blue blazes and will give you not only another look at the park but also a sense of pride by hiking on this amazing trail.

Another activity that most like to do either as a part of a day at Tar Hollow State Park or just for a quick trip, eating a picnic lunch. There is nothing like eating a meal outdoors. You have a belly full of delicious food, fresh air all around you, and the beautiful view of nature. This is a great idea even if it is just for an hour. At Tar Hollow State Park, there are many options when it comes to having a picnic. In the park, there are 4 areas that have been set up for picnicking and will give you some peace and quiet while you eat. There are also 8 shelter houses available for rent if you are having a gathering of any kind. Call the park office to rent one of these fantastic shelters.

One main draw to Tar Hollow State Park is their camping. They have many different camp sites all ranging in camping preferences and camping skill level. Here is what they can offer you. They have sunny as well as shady areas for camping as well as room for camping at 7 of their picnic shelters, by reservation. Around the park there are 71 sites equipped with electricity, 11 sites that don’t have electricity, 5 sites along the backpack trail, and 12 walk-in sites. The campground has showers, places to do your laundry, as well as many other amenities. When you camp at Tar Hollow State Park you will have full access to the trails as well as beaches on Pine Lake. Camping at Tar Hollow State Park would be a fun activity.

If you love to catch your own meal, then look no further than Tar Hollow State Park. They have fishing and hunting available for those with valid Ohio fishing and hunting licenses. Some of the fish you can see in the waters at Pine Lake are bluegill as well as other panfish. When you enter the forest, you will have an opportunity to try your hand at squirrel, turkey, grouse, and deer.

For some at Tar Hollow State Park, all they want to do is relax on the water. If you have an electric motor for your boat, or a paddle boat of any sort, then be sure to bring it to Pine Lake at Tar Hollow State Park. While on the water, you will get a view of the park and wildlife that is truly unique.

Our last suggestion at Tar Hollow State Park is birdwatching. There is nothing more relaxing than being immersed in nature and stilling your body for long periods to watch birds just being birds in nature. In our area, some of the birds you might see are, hummingbirds, blue birds, red breasted robin, and if you are very lucky, a bald eagle.

When it comes to loving nature, it’s something that is a part of us here in southern Ohio. When we have visitors to Inn at Cedar Falls, we definitely suggest a day trip to Tar Hollow State Park in Laurelville. We also suggest that you come spend your nights with us. We have many lodging options from cabins to rooms, all nestled in nature complete with comfortable beds and luxurious linens. Before you head out to explore Ohio, start your day off right with a delicious homemade breakfast. Contact our fantastic staff today to get back to nature with us at Inn at Cedar Falls and Tar Hollow State Park.

Hocking Hills Winter HikeThere is nothing more relaxing and exhilarating than taking a stroll in the woods. Thinking about the woods can be relaxing too. This is one of the reasons why so many people love visiting Hocking Hills, and staying with us at Inn at Cedar Falls. Our property is adjacent to Hocking Hills State Park which on its own has so many things to do but the park is always having events there which helps increase our own education and awareness for the area. Some would think that since winter is almost here that the park would be scaling back its events. This is further from the truth. Every year, visitors and locals alike love coming to the Hocking Hills Winter Hike. Never been to the Hocking Hills Winter Hike? Read on to find out why this is a beloved event in our area.

This year’s Hocking Hills Winter Hike will be on January 17th, 2015 at Hocking Hills State Park. As we have seen in years past, anyone who can handle the cold and love to walk are welcome to attend, including leashed dogs. Every year the attendants hope for some spectacular winter weather while on the Hocking Hills Winter Hike. Last year, there were over 5,000 hikers who all got to enjoy the splendor and beauty of nature frozen in time. The trail that you will walk is around 6 miles and since so many people love taking their time when hiking, the winter hike should take most of the day. Everyone congregates at the starting point, the campground anywhere from 9am to 11am. From there the hike will take you on through the park an to Upper Falls of Old Man Cave. In the beginning of the Hocking Hills Winter Hike, you are led with a guide in small groups but after the cave, you can finish the hike at your own pace. Be sure to listen to all of the guides amazing stories of the area, including the hermit who lived in Old Man Cave, and gave it its name.

While you are on your walk you will come to Cedar Falls, which marks the halfway point, where you will be greeted with a much deserved lunch. Every year the chefs make the best bean soup cooked in kettles over open flames as well as delicious corn bread and drinks to warm your bones. While you are at Cedar Falls be sure to check out Ohio’s largest tree, although we think it will be hard to miss.

There are some new and improved aspects of this year’s Hocking Hills Winter Hike. Over this year there have been many improvements made at the park which will make hiking a bit easier and safer. One other improvement has been the steady increase of black bears in our area. Be on the look out for these beautiful creatures.

When you come to Inn at Cedar Falls, always make sure to pack your hiking boots because you never know what you might get into while you are here. We love going to the Hocking Hills Winter Hike and love suggesting it. Since we are so close to the park, many visitors love choosing us as their place to stay while they are here.

Columbus Washboard CompanyWhen it comes to families of any size, one of the biggest sources of contention is laundry. There is always so much and so little time. Over the years, technology has progressed to help us get it all done. Quick cycles for when we are in a rush, longer ones for heavy stains, a slew of temperatures to choose from as well as different places to put bleach, soap, and fabric softener to make sure they all get added at the proper times. It’s gotten so nice you hardly have to sort your laundry anymore. Then once it’s done, the dryers take over. They have their own cycles and buttons all to make sure your laundry is dry and ready to wear. However, some of us long for the time where laundry was done by hand with love and hung to dry in the sun, which by the way, is the best way to get rid of a stain. One company has been not only manufacturing the original washboard continually in Logan, Ohio, but also love celebrating the art of laundry washing. This amazing company is Columbus Washboard Company. Sit back, relax, let you clothes cycle through once more, and let us at Inn at Cedar Falls tell you a bit more about this iconic American company.

Columbus Washboard Company’s history starts in 1895 with Frederic Martin Sr. who made these washboards in his backyard. The Columbus Washboard Company had a slow start but it really got going when his son, Frederic Martin Jr. Purchased the company from his father in 1925 and patented the design for the original “Bear Easy” washboard. He and his wife were the owners and operators of the Columbus Washboard Company until their deaths in the 1980’s and grew it to be what it is today.

If you are looking to purchase a washboard, you are in luck. Columbus Washboard Company still sells these amazing products. You can get one to use, one for decoration, or one for music. Be sure to check out their site for these washboards at a steal. You can also get a laundry kit that will outfit you with almost everything you will need to do laundry by hand. However, if you are just looking for some awesome laundry supplies, they have fantastic soaps, stain removers, and of course wooden pins to hang your laundry to dry on the line. Be sure to check out their salves and creams page to see other awesome products for sale.

For most, Father’s Day weekend is a time to celebrate dads, however, for the Columbus Washboard Company, it’s time for the annual Washboard Music Festival in downtown Logan. This fun festival celebrates everything classic American, including the washboard. There are food vendors, a car show, and of course great music.

Coming to Hocking Hills, Ohio is always a treat. We have so many fun things to do near us as well as a nature lovers dream since we at Inn at Cedar Falls are adjacent to Hocking Hills State Park. We have lodging options for any group size. While you are here, be sure to check out our impressive in-house restaurant, Kindred Spirits. Our chef strives to give you a first class meal in a relaxed, casual section. Contact our wonderful staff today to book a trip to see us!

Are you looking to get away with your partner? When you typically start thinking about romantic trips, usually our minds wander to the big name places and with that comes the big prices and lost of people. Why not think about having a romantic getaway in Ohio? We have everything you would need for the ultimate romantic weekend, and more. The Inn at Cedar Falls in Hocking Hills is the ultimate romantic getaway in Ohio. Not sure how you would want to spend your romantic weekend with us? Our staff has put together some fantastic ideas for you to start your planning.

romantic getaway in OhioHocking Hills is an outdoor lovers paradise. There are so many places to discover and wander around, most of them in Hocking Hills State Park. The first place that we recommend is Rock House. It is the only cave around and has an impressive 150 foot cliff of Blackhand sandstone. Some of the interesting parts of this cave is its 7 Gothic arched windows and gigantic sandstone columns that support the weight of the roof. Be sure to ask a guide about Rock House’s dark past. Also be sure to check out Rock Bridge. This is one of the many historic geologic features in Ohio. This bridge was formed millions of years ago when the Earth was still young and mostly under water. Over time the land pushed through the water and in time a lot of these rock formations were discovered.

Nestled in Zaleski State Forest is Lake Hope. There are so many things to see while you are here. Wild animals are in abundance as well as beautiful flowers and many historic sites, like abandoned mines. There is 18,200 acres of discovery to be had while you are here. Be sure to hit one of the trails and try and spot many of the local trees that you will be able to find.

If you love animals, one awesome way to see the beauty of Ohio would be to go on horseback. There are many great stables available that will take you on guided rides on trails. Pack a picnic and make it a romantic activity!

After spending all this time outside, the best way to unwind is to have a relaxing spa treatment. The Inn at Cedar Falls is well equipped in enveloping you in a luxurious massage that would perfect your romantic getaway in Ohio. The only way to end your romantic getaway in Ohio would be a divine meal at our in house restaurant. Our chef takes great pride in finding the best ingredients for his dishes.

Winter in Hocking Hills is a beautiful sight. The air is crisp and cool and residents and visitors alike love playing in the snow. For some visitors, snow isn’t something they are accustomed to and therefore aren’t really sure what kinds of activities are available. Our staff at Inn at Cedar Falls love helping our guests, as well as prospective guests, plan a fun trip full of Hocking Hills winter activities. Fortunately, our inn is nestled close to the Hocking Hills State Park so there is always something fun to do nearby, any time of year. Here are our top 4 Hocking Hills winter activities that you must experience.

1. Starting in December, be sure you come to see us at Inn at Cedar Falls for our 2 delicious cooking classes. Our first, on December 6th from 11am-2pm, is our Gingerbread House Class. Bring the kids and learn how to make this beloved dessert. We handle all of the materials, you just bring your imagination. The cost is $55 per person and also included is lunch and of course your gingerbread house to take home, or eat! Following that on December 7th & 14th we will have a Cookie Baking Class from 11am to 2pm. Our very own innkeeper Ellen and Grandma Joan have thought of 5 different and delicious recipes to bake and share with family and friends. This class is also $55 per person and includes ingredients, lunch, and a bag of cookies.

2. On January 17th, join locals and visitors for the Annual Winter Hike. Last year there were 5,600 hikers on this gorgeous and snow filled day all admiring the beautiful landscape. The total hike will be 6 miles so be sure that you are dressed appropriately for the weather as well as hiking. You will pass by gorgeous waterfalls and rock formations that will leave you breathless, if the hike alone doesn’t already. This event is free but donations are always appreciated.

3. Like the Annual Winter Hike in Hocking Hills State Park, visiting the park itself anytime during the winter is a top choice for Hocking Hills winter activities. Be sure to visit Old Man’s Cave, named after the hermit that lived in it. Be on the lookout for any wildlife that may be awake during this time of year. What makes this area so lovely is that it is acres of undisturbed forests and land. Be sure to check out their site to see all the activities offered during the winter.

4. If you love a bit of adventure and want to see some gorgeous views, then we suggest taking a plane tour. Hocking Hills Scenic Air Tours will take you up and away with some of the beauty that makes Hocking Hills a real attraction. Be sure to bring your camera as you will have some of the best pictures to show your family and friends. The tours can last from anywhere from 20 minutes to 60 minutes. Feel free to bring the kids for an adventure that they will not forget.

As you can see, there are a lot of Hocking Hills winter activities to choose from. When visitors come to the area in winter, they prefer the amazing lodging options at Inn at Cedar Falls. Our lodging options include cottages, cabins, and rooms. Each of which are beautifully decorated and will accommodate any group size. Be sure to check out our First Day of Winter Getaway Package! Our inn fills up quickly during this time of year so please contact our fantastic staff today to book a cabin, cottage, or room with us for your fun trip to Hocking Hills.

Dairy Barn Arts CenterThere are some of us out there that love a good quilt. Not only does it decorate our home in a certain way but it can also bring about cherished memories for generations. One amazing thing about quilts is that they all tell a story of some kind. This fabric is from this special place, this is the same thread that your grandmother used on another sewing project. No matter what, quilts bring us warmth not only on the outside of our bodies but in our hearts as well. Looking at a larger scale, there is an excellent day trip activity for those of us who love the stories that come from quilts, as well as other kinds of art, the Dairy Barn Arts Center. We at the Inn at Cedar Falls love taking a trip to the Dairy Barn Arts Center. Here are some of their ongoing and upcoming events for the rest of the year.

The first event that needs to be mentioned is their current and ongoing event, Quilt (R)Evolution: Art Quilt Retrospective 1979-2014. This is a truly beautiful event. Over the years there has been a Quilt National that has had multiple jurors as well. To make up this exhibition, the Dairy Barn Arts Center has asked each juror to loan them a selection of their works. Each is a different era in the juror’s life. The first is their earliest works, the second is a selection from while they were a juror, and the third is something that has been made recently. This is a once in a lifetime event to see such a large collection of master quilters together. This exhibition is being shown currently until November 22nd.

From November 13th until December 11th, the Dairy Barn Arts Center will be holding a Stain Glass for Beginners course in the Loft AEP Wing, every Thursday night from 5:30 until 7:30. The class is $120 ($110 for members) and not only will you learn some techniques but you will also be completing a project.

The Dairy Barn Arts Center loves helping citizens and visitors shop for Christmas. On December 5th and 6th they will host a Holiday Bazaar that will feature 40 local artists and will be held in the Sauber Gallery. Be sure to check out their list of vendors. This is a free event and should not be missed.

What better way to ring in the New Year than with your special someone and your friends at the Dairy Barn Arts Center. They will be hosting a very special New Year’s Eve party as well as a 101st birthday celebration of The Dairy Barn as well. Their New Years Eve 101st Birthday Gala will start at 7pm and will end in 2015. Be sure to check out their site for tickets!

As you can see, there is a lot that goes on at the Dairy Barn Arts Center. When people come visit us in the Hocking Hills area, this is one of the top places we suggest. People love visiting us at the Inn at Cedar Falls for our hospitality and natural beauty that surrounds the inn. We like to continue that trend with all of our lodging options and decorate them each individually and beautifully to reflect the area. Come spend some time with us and see what stories you will come back with. Contact our fantastic staff today to book a weekend with us.

Stuarts Opera HouseWhen you think about throwing a party, one of the first things that most think of is where to host it. Luckily for us in Nelsonville, Ohio, we have Stuart’s Opera House. Typically when you think of an opera house, you think of just a place where you stage amazing shows. This is true with Stuart’s Opera House, however, the space lends itself to be a jack of all trades. When we have visitors come to the Inn at Cedar Falls and are looking for a large space for their next event, or just a fun show to go to, we love recommending Stuart’s Opera House to them. Want to find out more about this awesome venue? Then read on for more!

First and foremost, Stuart’s Opera House is a place to see a great show. They have something going on all the time so the hardest thing to choose is what to see. They have a ton of shows for the rest of the year but we wanted to highlight some of the ones we are looking forward to. Starting next month, we are looking forward to The Honeycutters at Stuart’s Opera House. Their show is on Nov. 14th at 8 pm. Tickets start at $15 (reserved seats)/ $20 (box seats) or $20 (reserved seats)/ $25 (box seats) at the door. This country band formed in Asheville, NC in 2007 and since then, they have been taking the world by storm. Their songs are called catchy and heartfelt and is a show that can’t be missed. Bring the kids and come to Stuart’s Opera House on either December 4th or 5th at 7:30 or December 6th at 2 pm and see The Velveteen Rabbit. This beloved play is about a boy’s favorite toy rabbit becoming real and will leave the kids and kids at heart believing in the power of magic. The last December event at Stuart’s Opera House that we are looking forward to is their annual Winter Fundraiser. This year’s event will feature performers from Night with the Legends. Tickets start at $30 or $75 for VIP tickets. This is a great way to be entertained while supporting your favorite venue.

For most opera houses, all they do is shows. If you are looking for something a little different, how about hosting your wedding at Stuart’s Opera House? This will be an event that your friends and family will not forget. Be sure to check out their packages to see which one will fit into your budget and time frame.

The last thing that makes Stuart’s Opera House a fantastic venue is its Gallery 1879. The staff transforms the lobby into this amazing place to showcase works from local, regional, and national artists. They also participate in Final Fridays on the Square which is a fun event for locals and visitors.

When visitors come to Stuart’s Opera House, they love choosing to spend their nights with us at the Inn at Cedar Falls. It doesn’t matter the size of your group, we have lodging accommodations for any group. Also, our beautiful inn is situated adjacent to Hocking Hills State Park and affords our guest some of the most beautiful views. After a fun night out and a restful sleep, be sure to start your day off with some delicious breakfast in our restaurant. Contact our wonderful staff today to plan a weekend with us at the Inn at Cedar Falls.

Holiday Parties at The Inn http://innatcedarfalls.com/blog/2014/10/holiday-parties-inn/ http://innatcedarfalls.com/blog/2014/10/holiday-parties-inn/#comments Wed, 15 Oct 2014 18:19:56 +0000 http://innatcedarfalls.com/?p=11611 With summer coming to an end and the leaves beginning to change, it is time for many event planners to start formulating their holiday party strategy.

With summer coming to an end and the leaves beginning to change, it is time for many event planners to start formulating their holiday party strategy. With so many venue options, how do you choose what is best for your group? A good start is to look at the consensus of what is important for your group. The holiday party_DiningMG_5913 (2) is a time to celebrate the year as a whole team, and you always push to please as many team members as possible. Some companies take this time for team building activities, others just head to the local watering hole for a couple drinks. Each company and group is so different, that what worked for one may not work for the other.

Often the one overlying opinion is the importance of good food and beverages for a good holiday party. Themed menus are very popular, deriving menu items from traditional holiday comfort food. Remember though, your attendees will get plenty of turkey, ham and mashed potatoes over the holiday months, so mixing up the menu with more refined dishes is often well received. With Americans living such Moon rise over hill at Inn at Cedar Falls by Jim Crottybusy lives, many of your attendees often do not have time to go out for a fine meal. The holiday season is a great time for your team to get away from it all and really connect as a group. When your attendees leave an event gushing over the food, you know your event was a success.

The ambiance is also another important aspect of holiday parties. The venue is a large part of the ambiance, and really sets the tone for the vibe of the event.  As a planner you will find that the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls has everything your attendees are looking for in a holiday party. Our venue is one of a kind, and is a welcome change up to the normal hotel event space or restaurant party room. Here at the Inn, each group is able to customize their options based around the needs of the group. If you are looking for a private dining experience, the Gathering Place is a wonderful option. If your group is interested in more of a mingling feel, your group can hang out in our fireside lounge. When it comes to the food, our high level of cuisine and complimentary service are hard to beat.

Our team at the Inn & Spa would be thrilled to host you next holiday party. We are confident that your experience will us will be a memorable one, and will have your attendees asking to return next year. We invite you to come and visit us for a formal tour to show you what we can do! We offer event planners a special overnight discount when you come down for a tour, so make a weekend out of it and come check us out! We look forward to seeing you at the Inn!
