The price is now $2 per adult. It's one of the cheapest attractions along Hwy. 101 and well worth it. The parking lot right in front of the log house is an electric car charging station, so be sure to park at the gift shop.

Famous One Log House

Totally worth the $1 per person. It's like walking into a 1950s time warp. The gift shop is super cute, plus they have decent food for a roadside stop. Now they have a [marijuana] dispensary, which I'm sure helps funding for the One Log House. The One Log House is just as it was in its debut: two beds, a dining table with the chairs carved out of the log, old books, photos etc. The storage cabinets are carved out of the log. It's a lot bigger than it appears. Great use of space.
