Also on Wednesday, there will be a stroll through Historic Downtown Logan with a storyteller/guide. OR enjoy a three-hour horseback ride through Logan Canyon in the Cache National Forest.

A Spring Visit in Historic Downtown Logan

March 27th, 2013 by BBIU

More signs of springThis Spring may be a perfect time to visit Historic Downtown Logan, UT. Spring flowers will be blooming soon and the tree lined streets will frame the historic buildings. Turn-of-the-century homes, churches, and store building fill the Historic Downtown and the surrounding blocks. The Logan Tabernacle is a showcase of classic Mormon pioneer architecture. The iconic Bluebird Cafe is a must-see, as is the newly restored Cache County Courthouse. And a walk down Center Street features elegant nineteenth- century mansions.
Within the Historic Downtown are antiques shops; clothing, gift and collectible shops, and a variety of unique eateries. Stop at the Cache Valley Visitors Bureau, located in the Historic Cache County Courthouse, at 199 North Main St. Pick up a walking tour guide, or one of the numerous brochures available to help you fully enjoy Springtime in Cache County.
And no trip to Logan can be complete without a drive through the beautiful campus of the Utah State University, “on the hill” overlooking the downtown and across the pastoral Cache Valley.
Within walking distance of Logan’s Main Street is the Riter Mansion B & B, and in nearby Providence is the Old Rock Church Bed and Breakfast (formerly called The Providence Inn). Innkeepers at both inns are a wealth of information on the area and a great source of tips for how to navigate the area like a “local”.

Providence and Logan, UT Inn News

February 13th, 2013 by BBIU

Long time member of the Bed and Breakfast Inns of UT, The Providence Inn Bed & Breakfast in Providence, UT has “rebranded”  itself.

The property has long been known as the Providence Inn Bed & Breakfast, with a separate identity as The Old Rock Church.  Many locals have known the Old Rock Church for the congregation that met there until 1963.  Since then, the church has transformed into a wedding chapel, with an increasing use for other events.

In addition to the traditional weddings, celebrations, and retreats, recent events have included a production of the classic “Seven Wives for Seven Brothers”, staged right there in the non-traditional setting of the inn/church.  There has also been increased use of the gardens, Parlor, and Bridal rooms for in-house concerts, business meetings, and private dinners.

With this in mind, the property is redefining its image. The “rebranded” name is The Old Rock Church, Bed & Breakfast & Events.
