Since we partnered with Hiawatha Log Homes for our BIG Second Quarter Give-A-WAY, (Win A $7,500 Hiawatha Oulu Lodge Sauna Kit) I thought it would be fun to tell a little more of the Hiawatha Log Homes story, show people around, and let you meet some of the team that’s part of this incredible U.P. business.

I recently had the opportunity to spend a day at the Company’s Corporate Headquarters and Design Center that is located about 4 miles east of Munising on M-28.

It was “Casual” Friday before the Memorial Day weekend, the staff welcomed me into their exquisite home away from home. If you have never had the opportunity to stop in to Hiawatha Log Homes, I highly encourage you to do so. Once you do, you’ll day dream all the way home.

Over the coming weeks, I’ll take you on a little walking tour of the manufacturing facilities and introduce you to some of the Hiawatha Team. Stay tuned . . .

"I knew that I wanted a log home from the beginning. To be honest, though, my wife had to be convinced. Once she met our dealer, saw some Hiawatha Log Homes and talked to the homeowners, she became as excited as I was. We are so happy we chose Hiawatha Log Homes. We had a wonderful experience, and if we had to do it all over again, we would absolutely choose Hiawatha Log Homes."
