Fire at the Hocking Hills Dining Lodge

We are so sad to report that there is a major fire at the Hocking Hills Dining Lodge, one of the best, and most reasonably priced, places to dine in the Hocking Hills. It started before 9 am, when the building was not yet open to the public. Early reports indicate that no one has been injured.  Some sources report that the roof is in the process of being replaced and that it started there.

Many fire units have been called in from surrounding counties and beyond. There is a smokey scent in the air, not like your usual campfire or wood stove.

Here is a link to the Columbus NBC affiliate‘s report of the fire earlier in the day.

We will post more when we know more. A sad day for Hocking County.

August 18 Tourism Association Update & Dining Suggestion

The Hocking HIlls Tourism Association’s Weekend Update  is now available. I almost forgot to share it after promising that I would. It is packed with stuff to do, not only for the weekend but for the week ahead and beyond.

As an extra, here is a dining suggestion, based on my lunch with my friend Pamela today at the Hocking Hills Dining Lodge: try the Caveside salad. Baby spinach, goat cheese, toasted almonds, sun dried tomatoes, shredded carrots, onion, craisins/raisons and a champagne vinaigrette dressing. Delicious!
