— Shiny and new is a thing of the past. Hocking Hill’s newest getaway is testament to that.
The brand new Hocking Hills Rusty Lofts are rustic meets fabulous, and are situated minutes away from downtown Logan, where one-of-a-kind restaurants, wineries and downtown activities await visitors. It’s also just a short, scenic drive to Hocking Hills State Park.
Sleeping up to six guests, the Lofts include a private queen bedroom, a king bed ‘cozied’ into the corner of the loft and a sleeper sofa centrally located in the living room. You better bet that this winter oasis comes equipped with a fireplace, and soon, a game room including an air hockey table, a poker-card table and a Foosball table.
“The amount of positive reviews from some of our first guests has been astounding,” according to a press release from the Loft.
Guests who have jumped to be some of the first to break in Hocking’s newest hub have all left their stay with reasons to return.
Allegra Czerwinski, a member of our Dayton.com team, stayed in the Loft for New Year’s Eve and couldn’t wait to tell us about it.
“We really enjoyed our stay and loved the vibe of the loft,” Czerwinski said. “It felt very private while still being central to downtown Logan. There’s even a pizza place within walking distance! The space itself was really clean, open and decorated thoughtfully.”

Considering hotel rates and pricey seasonal stays around the Hocking Hills area, the Rusty Lofts are hard to beat for a relaxing retreat at just $87 per night.
The Lofts are available for booking Monday through Sunday. In order to book visit, you may visit airbnb.com or call their office number at 614.245.8267.

— Dayton’s venue that has morphed to become all things to all people is expanding its schedule. The Yellow Cab Building, which hosts various music, art, food and beer events, announced a new expanded weekly schedule this month.
Starting Aug. 17, Yellow Cab will be open Thursdays through Sundays. Currently, the schedule varies based on special events.
“We’ve loved getting to know so many people through hosting all of the great local events that have called Yellow Cab home,” Tara Moore, co-owner of the Yellow Cab, said in a press release.
Recent developments involving the venue’s capacity to sell alcohol prompted the decision, according to Moore.
“Now with our full liquor license, we’re excited to become a neighborhood tavern for all of our friends.”
Yellow Cab still plans to hold special events throughout the week as they are scheduled. In addition to the new hours, the owners also announced they will be a hub for Dayton Premiere League soccer fans.
“If the Premier League is on, The Yellow Cab will be open. It’s basically getting an excuse to watch a ton of soccer this season with no guilt,” Mark Jeffers, co-owner of the Yellow Cab, said. “After all, it'll be my job.”
