Chattanooga cabin description
The Ocoee House 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, but has sleeping space for up to 8 persons for larger families or groups of friends. A private downstairs bedroom features a double bed made of logs. 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 full bath with a shower.
The cabin has a fully-equipped kitchen with everything you need to cook at home, 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 40 minutes east of Chattanooga. 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, ziplining, 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!

Restful and Relaxing
Restful and Relaxing
The Ocoee House was recommended to me by my sister several years ago. Needed someplace to get away for a few days and recharge. My first thought was the Ocoee House. This is was my third trip to this property. Quiet, Relaxing, and Peaceful. Watched the river go by and grilled out steaks. I highly recommend for a relaxing vacation.

Fairy tale ending to adventure vacation
Fairy tale ending to adventure vacation
The Ocoee house was our last stop on a week long adventure through Tennessee. Our group consisted of eight people ( including four children) The cabin was a perfect way to end our trip. The owners were incredibly hospitable and went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and enjoyment throughout our stay. The cabin itself was a paradise ( for old and young alike) including all the amenities of home. The surroundings provided endless hours of entertainment for our whole party. We were even able to take a trip down the occoee and pull the boating equipment out at the house!!! I will definitely be back in the future.

lovely weekend getaway
lovely weekend getaway
Me and my wife spent the weekend and greatly enjoyed ourselves. The cabin was extremely clean and very nicely set up. The wood smell in the cabin gives you the feeling of being at home. With the veiw of the river outside your front door this cabin could not be more romantic. We are hoping to make this one of our regular vacation stops.

About the owner: Kevin and Jenny are both Tennessee natives and graduates of the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. We have a 14 year old son who is just starting high school, two dogs, and two cats. We love the outdoors and love sharing our beautiful Ocoee House cabin with people
Why the Owner Chose Chattanooga:
This location is absolutely beautiful and suits our lifestyles 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 40 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.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Many of our guests at Ocoee House enjoy the simple beauty of their cabin and surrounding, 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.
