Fairly inexpensive to put up and maintain they offered a rustic retreat for families on the road.
Some of my earliest vacation memories (which I have written about in earlier posts) were spent in a log cabin at the Lake of the Ozarks.
This weekend while driving to a birthday party for daughter in one of the busier sections of our fair town I came across the following log structures.
A number 3 is on the front door of this one.
Usually made of smaller cedar or pine logs, not much effort was put into hewing the logs or making them uniform. You can see that in the wavy chinking.
Small logs were easy to find, easy to move and lift.
Where some of the older hewn logs took about 5 or 6 logs to make one story, these take about 12 or 13.
I would suggest it wast the office for the motel complex at one time witht he bigger front window and front porch.
Following are a few more log cabin road side stops.
And a couple from my childhood vacation area, Osage Beach Mo.
And the next one is the vacation one we used in the 60's.
