Log raising at Sleepy Oaks

August 14, 2009

Come and watch craftsmen at work as they build a log home from the ground up right before your eyes. This traditional log raising event will take place at the Sleepy Oaks subdivision in Berkeley Springs, W.Va., August 21 and 22.

Sleepy Oaks is a new community of luxury mountain retreat homes. Six wooded estate lots, with plenty of privacy and breathtaking views, ranging in size from four to seven-and-a-half acres are available. Sleepy Creek meanders through five of the six lots. Moderate to large homes featuring logs, stone, cedar siding, plenty of windows and large decks will blend in with the natural setting of the community.

Owner of Mt. Tabor Builders, Willie Eby said, "A log raising is a really great event for everyone, kids and adults alike. It has the feel of an old fashioned community event. You can see first hand how we assemble the walls, create window and door openings, install beams and ceilings, and more". Mt. Tabor Builders has also built a beautiful log home shell on another lot in Sleepy Oaks, which will be open for viewing during the log raising.


Sleepy Oaks is being developed on a 30-acre tract of land located next to Sleepy Creek Mountain State Park. The south branch of Sleepy Creek runs through the property. Sleepy Oaks is located approximately 15 minutes from historic Berkeley Springs and less than 15 minutes from Cacapon State Park, which features a Robert Trent Jones Championship golf course. It is the ideal location for those who want to live or vacation in a natural setting, yet be close enough to town and other amenities. An elegant, stylish home in Sleepy Oaks offers excellent short and long term investment potential, as a vacation home, a rental property or a retirement home.

Sleepy Oaks offers easy access to family-oriented activities and resources in a mountain wilderness environment. Berkeley Springs is a quaint little town with a lot to offer - peace, tranquility and an escape from the pressures of the everyday life. Local attractions include luxurious spas, art galleries, shopping, dining, state parks, golf, rivers and lakes.
