Log Cabin breaks ground on new wedding venue

Monday, July 21, 2014
Holyoke — The Log Cabin, a long-running outdoor wedding venue with panoramic mountain views from its Mount Tom location, has begun work on an addition.

The business is expanding its outdoor facilities on the uppermost clearing above its outdoor patio, and this week, workers broke ground on what is being called Upper Vista.

“We are offering couples something very unique,” says Peter Rosskothen, co-owner of the Log Cabin. “Upper Vista is on the highest point of the property. The view is breathtaking.”

The venue can handle weddings of up to 150 people, with customized menus provided by Log Rolling, the Log Cabin’s catering division.

“For some couples, there is a trend toward less traditional venues for weddings,” Rosskothen said. “With Upper Vista, our customers get the experience of the funky outdoor wedding without the logistical headaches of planning it all themselves.”

Upper Vista is scheduled to open in spring 2015.
