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 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.

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 17 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.

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!

Unbelievably beautiful grounds and scenery. Watching the daily changes in the river and associated tributaries was amazing. Even the local "Toad Hollow" hike was an adventure. The cabins feel very remote but are so close to many local features and towns. While we were there a storm blew out the television. The owners were very kind and extraordinarily prompt in its replacement. Our only note is the kitchen is quite small and the oven/burners variable in their function. This was a challenge but if eating out or taking out this would not pose as much of an issue. Given we cooked most of our meals, this was the only reason the cabin given four not five stars. Kitchen was well stocked and if full meal prep not needed, this was a wonderful vacation spot and we would not hesitate to recommend.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Welcome Valley Village. The entire property is magnificently maintained and our cabin was perfect! The cabin was in a quaint, private setting with breathtaking views. The cabin was super clean and the kitchen was perfect for cooking small meals. We were able to visit all our destinations within a short drive...enjoying mountain biking, rafting, shopping, dining and Lookout Mountain. I highly recommend Welcome Valley Village to anyone looking for a peaceful, quiet place to relax that is close enough to lots of thrills.

Valentine's Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect getaway for our first Valentine's. We fell in love with the cabin as soon as we got there. Great view of the river from the front porch. The cabin is well secluded from the other cabins. The decor and and atmosphere of the cabin are very welcoming and you feel immediately at home. Kitchen is well furnished, you only need to bring food and drink. Very pleasant owners and staff are friendly and helpful. I would recommend this cabin to anyone, for any occasion. We decided to book it twice more this year before we ever left.

Best possible place to be

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I chose this cabin to spend our 1 year anniversary. There is an unexplainable magic about this place that can't be met anywhere else in the area. From the beautiful river at your front porch to the amazingly home felt care that is put into the cabin itself, I wouldn't have spent our anniversary anywhere else. We plan to come back each year to enjoy this experience. I would highly recommend Welcome Valley Village to any couple looking for a romantic getaway or to any family looking for a quiet place to get everyone together for an event, holiday, or reunion.

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.
