History

The Logs Resort was established in the mid-1950s by Rod and Hazel Ohlsen, at the lower end of Canyon Creek near the confluence with the North Fork of the Nooksack River. The Resort consisted of five rustic log cabins and a main house, also of log construction. In the early years, the cabins were leased to ski clubs in the winter season. As time went on, a large outdoor pool was constructed on the river bottom, and the cabins were opened to the public year-round. Many families began the tradition of spending their vacations at The Logs Resort. Some of these families have been staying with us for over 30 years now! In the 1970s the Canyon Creek watershed was heavily logged. Forest practices were not as regulated then, and the result was steep, unstable slopes within the watershed. In 1989-1990, these slopes failed during severe winter storms and led to massive debris torrent flooding on Canyon Creek, washing away some homes (but not the cabins). In the following years attempts were made to control ‘mother nature’ with levies.

Tom and Wendy Cosgrove, and Larry and Avalea Watts purchased The Logs Resort from the original owners in 1997. Plans to expand the Resort were not realized due to the risk of flooding. After several years of working with the county to mitigate the risks, it was determined that acquiring property for relocation of the cabins was better than trying to implement flood control measures. In 2004, all five cabins and the main house were picked up and moved about a half-mile upstream on Canyon Creek, out of the flood plain. By early 2005, the cabins were back in operation, renovated, yet very much the same as always. Our mission is to continue to provide affordable lodging for family-oriented vacations. We want you to take a step back in time, take a deep breath, and relax……
