Mason Lane Farm, Kentucky

Every guest room has a view of the ocean, so no matter which room you book, you’ll have a beautiful view. Room sizes range from 350 square feet to 1,100 square feet. The inn’s woodwork is incredible. Massive wooden beams provide a level foundation for the construction and avoid flooding during storms for The Fogo Island Inn. This wooden building was built only six years ago. It’s a wonderful work of art.

The Tillamook Air Museum, in Oregon, is the world’s largest wooden construction. The hangar, which was built in 1942, was used to store the blimps and warships of the United States Navy. This gigantic hangar is 296 feet wide and 1,072 feet tall, and it spans seven acres. So, that means the hangar is the size of six football fields! The large wooden tower now serves as an aircraft museum and is the home to a number of historic planes from around the world.
