Overview

About the property

Ocoee Cabin accomodates 2-4 guests nicely. Has bedding for 8 incl futon in lv rm

Visit Chattanooga, then get out of town and stay in a log cabin on the Ocoee River, just 45 minutes away. This beautiful cabin is located just 5 minutes from the Ocoee River Scenic Byway and entrance to the Cherokee National Forest. Our Ocoee Cabin is a two-story log cabin situated on the banks of the scenic Ocoee River. A cathedral ceiling and a 'wall of windows' provide guests with an unobstructed view of the river which is less than 40 feet from the cabin's large front porch. Interior walls and floors are finished with knotty pine boards to maintain the authentic cabin experience.

Our cabin combines the seclusion of a rustic woodland retreat with the luxury of beautiful furnishings and appointments. The focal point of the great room is a large stone fireplace with handcrafted log mantle. Directly across the great room from the fireplace, a sunken 2-person Jacuzzi tub sits in an alcove surrounded by windows, offering the ultimate relaxation spot.

Bring your favorite book, beverage, or maybe a guitar to the front porch and enjoy the serene environment. Guests have reported seeing river otters, ducks, beavers, eagles, and giant blue herons all tending to their business along the river.

The Ocoee House is a romantic and cozy retreat for a couple, small family, or you and a few friends. A private downstairs bedroom features a queen size bed. The open loft bedroom has a double bed, twin bed, and twin trundle bed. Additional sleeping is provided by a full-size futon with spring mattress in the great room. The cabin has one bathroom with a shower.

The cabin has a fully-equipped kitchen with everything you need to cook in, or you can venture out to one of several casual restaurants in the area with wonderful local flavor. Only 5 minutes away, the 'Ocoee Dam Deli and Diner' has earned wide-spread popularity for serving delicious fresh food in a fun and unique environment.

And if Mother Nature doesn't provide enough entertainment, the cabin has a 32' Samsumg flat-screen TV, DVD player, movie library, Sony CD player/radio with iPod dock, and games. We do not have cable TV but Antenna TV which gets about a dozen channels including ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, and PBS.

On our property, you can fish or swim from the riverside dock, play a game of horseshoes or basketball, explore our walking trails through the woods, or enjoy a warm fire under the stars in the outdoor firepit.

Offering 'the best of both worlds', we are located at the edge of the Cherokee National Forest, but only 45 minutes northeast of Chattanooga (via Cleveland). In the national forest, you'll find numerous opportunities for outdoor recreation. One of the most popular activities during the warmer months is taking a guided whitewater rafting trip on the Ocoee River, site of the whitewater paddling events during the 1996 Olympics. Guests also enjoy tubing or kayaking on the Hiwassee River, pontoon boat rentals on Lake Ocoee, hiking, fishing, glider rides, horseback riding, zip-lining, or taking a scenic train ride.

Then change the pace with a fun-filled day exploring all the attractions, restaurants, and shopping in the fabulous city of Chattanooga!

About Jenny or Kevin

Kevin and Jenny are both Tennessee natives and graduates of the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. We have a 19 year old son, two dogs, and two cats. We love the outdoors and feel very blessed to make our home here in the Ocoee Region. We love sharing our beautiful Ocoee Cabin with guests.

Jenny or Kevin purchased this cabin in 1994

Why Jenny or Kevin chose Tennessee

This location is absolutely beautiful and suits our family's lifestyle perfectly. The Cherokee National Forest is just 5 minutes away where we enjoy kayaking, hiking, backpacking, swimming, and mountain biking. We enjoy floating from the Ocoee Dam to our property in the summer. When we feel like a little city life we travel about 45 minutes to Chattanooga where we can enjoy shopping, great restaurants, the TN Aquarium, music and art festivals, University of Tennessee events, minor league baseball games, scenic river cruises, and so much more. Also, Lee University is just 20 minutes away in Cleveland and hosts numerous cultural and sporting events.

What makes this cabin unique

Many of our guests at Ocoee House enjoy the simple beauty of their cabin and surroundings, rarely leaving our property. We have 17 wooded acres where you can take a stroll, cast a line for trout or bass, take a swim, or just watch the river roll by.

Perfect Log Cabin Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the Ocoee cabin for four nights. The grounds are immaculate and the cabin was comfortable and decorated way beyond what you would expect, like right out of Log Cabin magazine. Jenny and Kevin are great proprietors and obviously care a great deal about their property and their guests' experience. I would highly recommend Welcome Valley village.

The Perfect Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has it all. Waterfront, great view, wonderful porch, charming, beautifully decorated, clean, real wood fire place, light an open. I can't imagine anything you would want that this cabin doesn't have. Also it is unusual to get to be right on the river. We enjoyed the fire pit, the pavilion and the dock. Kevin and Jenny went out of their way to help us and accommodate some last minute changes in plans we had. Also the price is amazing for what you get. We will return again and again! Thank you!

Ocoee Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The Ocoee Cabin is perfect for a girls' getaway. My friends and I come each MLK weekend. The cabin is charming and always clean. The property is very well maintained. Kevin and Jenny are very accommodating and the price is great. We love the view of the river and enjoy hiking a little. You'll love eating at the Ocoee Dam Diner. Everything we've ever had there is great. All in all it's a great cabin and place to visit. We build a big fire and have made a lot of great memories. Thanks Kevin and Jenny.

Great location and an amazing cabin.

  • 5 of 5

First thing we noticed was just how clean everything was. The cabin itself is in great condition and everything you can ever need is provided for you. The owners are very easy to get in touch with and very friendly and helpful. Great location, from relaxing to the hiking everything was beautiful. We were very impressed with the whole experience and are planning on coming back with the family. I would definitely recommend this place.

Wonderful Cabin on the River, Great place to vacation, Worth Every Penny!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 4 nights with 3 adults, 4 kids and had a wonderful time! The cabin and surrounding area is gorgeous. A little tight with 7 of us, but everyone had a place to sleep, had plenty of towels and everything we needed. It was great to walk into a nice cool cabin too, because it was definitely HOT out! We also did a lot of grilling and cooking, so the kitchen was no problem. The kids (11 through 15 years old) - had a great time fishing when the river was down, then swimming/tubing when the river was up. Best of both worlds! We all ended up buying river rafts and floated down the river directly to the cabin for 2 of the 4 days we were there, so much fun!

The boys caught some nice bluegill from the river, it's very pretty in the mornings when you can see the bottom. Easy to dangle a worm in front of a fish! Conveniently located to tourist areas like Ruby Falls and the Lost Sea, but we ended up just staying at the cabin. We did hit Chattanooga one evening with the photographers of the group and got some nice night shots from the local bridges there. We took a lot of pictures! Even some of butterflies checking out the pretty flowers on the property. :-)

Cabin was nice and clean, has everything you need to feel at home - right when you walk in the door. The owners are very kind, easy to deal with, and quite helpful with local info! We highly recommend Welcome Valley Village cabins, and definitely hope to go back soon! The surrounding area with the dock, access to the river, hammocks, fire pit, grills, etc. is perfect for families. If you're on the fence about renting here, just do it. You'll love it!

Our Ocoee log cabin is located at Welcome Valley Village (WVV), near the Western gateway to the Cherokee National Forest on Highway 64, and is about 15-20 minutes East of Cleveland, and 45-50 minutes North and East of Chattanooga. If approaching our area from the west, or coming up GA Hwy 411 from Atlanta, you'll begin to see the mountains in the CNF getting closer and closer. You'll begin to see numerous adventure companies along the highway offering whitewater rafting trips, ziplines, and horseback riding. After crossing the Ocoee River, take your first left hand turn onto Welcome Valley Road and our resort is 2 miles on the left.

The Ocoee Region is popular with vacation travelers looking for outdoor adventure, scenic driving tours, hiking, mountain biking, boating, or a beautiful quiet spot to retreat to for some rest and relaxation.

Within 10 minutes of WVV you will find lots of lovely rural scenery, 2 grocery stores, several restaurants, a zip-line, a corn maze, and nearly a dozen whitewater rafting companies.

Our area does not offer a lot of options for shopping but a few are notable to mention. Ms. Be's Purple Bus, on Hwy 64 is a neat place to shop for handmade necklaces, bracelets, bags, clothing, and beading supplies. Benton Shooters Supply, on Hwy 411 in Benton is reportedly the 'largest gun store in the south.' Also, every whitewater rafting company has a gift shop for local souvenirs.
