About Kevin or Jenny Rogers
We are Kevin and Jenny Rogers. We are both Tennessee natives and graduates of the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. We have a 21 year old son, two dogs, and two cats. We love the outdoors and have enjoyed sharing our beautiful Ivy Cottage cabin with guests over the past 24 years. We are Owner/Operators who live onsite, and we pride ourselves on customer service. Ivy Cottage was built as a retreat by Jenny's late mother Warnie Elizabeth Dooly Finnell. She lived and worked in Cleveland, and came to Ocoee for rest and play. She visualized Welcome Valley Village as a means to share this special place with others.
Kevin or Jenny Rogers purchased this Cabin in 1994
Why Kevin or Jenny Rogers chose Benton
Ivy Cottage is convenient to the beautiful Ocoee Region of the Cherokee National Forest where we enjoy scenic drives, photography, 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 45-50 minutes to Chattanooga where we can enjoy shopping, great restaurants, the TN Aquarium, live music and art festivals, University of Tennessee events, minor league baseball games, scenic river cruises, and so much more. Also, Cleveland and Lee University are just 20 minutes away for shopping and lots of restaurants.
What makes this Cabin unique
The best thing about Ivy Cottage is that it so dang cute. Round logs, exposed rafters, the loft, simple wide plank floors, tasteful decor, and that's just the inside. Step out of the bedroom onto a deck with fireplace, and the sounds of a creek below. Some of our guests enjoy the simple beauty of their cabin and surroundings, rarely leaving our property. Enjoy a fire on the patio, read, tell stories or just listen to the night sounds. Take a stroll around our 17 wooded acres, cast a line for trout or bass, turn over rocks in the creek to find salamanders, take a swim in the river, or just watch it roll by from a dock chair. Ivy Cottage is perfect for those who don't want to stay in a hotel or hear 'city sounds' in the evening. There is absolutely no comparison! Check us out. We enjoy going to the 'big' cities of Cleveland and Chattanooga, but I'd rather go to sleep and start the day here at Ivy Cottage. Two Grocery stores and several restaurants are available within 10 minutes from the cabin.

The Vandiver’s Stay
We will definitely be coming back. This place was beautiful. Everything is so well done from the landscaping and decor outside to the inside.
What a great weekend at a wonderful retreat. We stayed at the Ivy cottage, which was really perfect - clean, well maintained, and stocked with everything we needed. The property is in such a beautiful park-like setting. Super peaceful. The pavilion was splendid for hanging out and communing with nature and the Ocoee River. Kevin was very accessible and, happily, willing to help us with a car issue. A really great host. Thanks for welcoming us to a perfect weekend, rain and all 😀
We had a nice stay in the Ivy Cottage, the smallest of the cabins at Welcome Village. The property is a perfect getaway, remote, quiet but close enough to civilization so you can make a supply run or dine at a restaurant. We recommend these cabins.
Thanks for your review! We agree with your assessment of our great location, and are glad you enjoyed our cabin.
It’s a cozy and cute cabin!
My 9 and11 year old girls loved this cabin. It is very cozy. The owners are very nice, and their doggies are part of the attractions.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience. We hope that if you come back to our area that you'll stay with us again.
Lovely property and looking forward to a return visit
Thanks for taking time to post your comment. Hopefully you'll have better weather the next time you come; it's too bad that your horseback riding trip was cancelled.
Can't wait to go back.
Beautiful property, pristine kept cabins and land.
