The Pines cabin is located at Welcome Valley Village, a log cabin retreat on Tennessee’s Ocoee River. Our 17 acre property is diverse with lots of mature forest, 750’ of riverfront, and a mountain stream running through the center of the property. The Village has a feeling of remoteness yet it’s less than 2 miles from the highway.
Whether you're coming to take in all our area has to offer or just hang out and relax for a few days, The Pines is one of the finest accommodations available in our area.
We have been sharing The Pines with travelers since 1995. Guests love the easy access, private location, cabin design, and beautiful furnishings. Some guests check-in and never leave the property until it’s time for them to go home. Others use the cabin as an outpost for day hikes, biking, whitewater rafting, fishing, and photography. Many take a day to visit Cleveland (20 minutes), Chattanooga (50 minutes), and other nearby points of interest. There are two grocery stores, liquor stores, and several restaurants within 10 minutes of The Village.
The Pines is an 850 ft2 single story log cabin with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, wood burning fireplace, and a 2-person whirlpool tub. The cabin is in the river flood plain, so it is elevated off of the ground. There are 14 steps to reach the cabin level. This cabin is perfect for 2-4 guests, but there is sleeping space for 6 to 8 for large families. The dining room table seats 6.
A great room includes the kitchen, dining area, and living area. Six nice large windows allow natural light and views of the river. The living area has a sofa/futon, a padded chair, and a long fireplace hearth which provides additional seating. The fireplace has a beautiful stacked stone face and hearth. The hearth continues on around a large Jacuzzi in the corner of the room.
If you need entertained there is a 32” Samsung flat-screen TV, DVD player, and movie library. We have antenna TV and get about a dozen channels including ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, and FOX. Our Wi-Fi is great for streaming video, music, and movies.
The kitchen has a refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave oven, coffee maker, and toaster along with cookware, dinnerware, and cutlery. There is not a dishwasher, but there is a drying rack and dish washing soap provided. We also provide cloth dish towels, paper towels, napkins, paper plates, plastic cups, coffee filters, salt and pepper, and sweetener packets.
There is a "park style" charcoal grill just off of the porch for grilling, and a nice campfire pit with chairs and a swing beside the river.
The Master Bedroom has a queen size bed, nightstand and table lamp. The second bedroom has a full size bed. a set of bunk beds, night stand, table lamps, and a small chair. A futon in the living room provides additional sleeping options. Our linens and bedding are very nice.
The bathroom has a double vanity and 2 clothes closets. A door separates this room from a second room where the shower and toilet are located. Both bedrooms have a door leading into the bathroom vanity area (ie. the bathroom is located in-between the bedrooms). Our are fluffy.
A large covered porch on the river side of the cabin gives you a great view of the forest floor below, flower gardens, and the river. Your campfire pit is in this area beside the river. Since the cabin is elevated, the view from the porch is greatly enhanced (see photos)! There is a porch swing, large table, and 6 chairs.
Beneath the porch hang several swings, and one of them is “for 2”. This makes for an interesting, additional place for children to hang out and play, especially whenever it’s raining. The forest is thinned out on the river side of the cabin, so that you can easily stroll around enjoying our native and cultivated flower beds. It’s a really nice place to relax and watch the river to see what flies or swims by.
We have a trail which loops around our 17 acre property it runs alongside the riverbank near your campfire pit. Venture either North or South from there for a nice walk around the property.
We live onsite and are ready to help you make the very best of your vacation, and are readily available to assist with any problem which may arise.
