The Ivy Cottage is our smallest and most affordable cabin. This 450 square foot two-story log cabin makes no concessions when it comes to comfortable furnishings and charm. It's got everything you need. This cabin is very popular with business travelers, couples, and small families. The downstairs bedroom has a double bed with a 19 inch flat screen TV, DVD player, and movie collection. Additional sleeping is available on two twin beds located in the loft, which is accessed by a ' ship's ladder '. The living room is small but is made very comfortable with 2 wing-back chairs, and one has an ottoman.
The kitchen has a table for two, stove/oven, single basin sink, toaster, microwave oven, coffee maker, and a small refrigerator that fits underneath the kitchen counter. The bathroom has a full size shower/tub combination with jacuzzi jets and a single basin sink. We believe that you will find the furnishings very pleasing right down to the hand carved kissing squirrels.
While cozy on the inside, a large deck wraps around two sides of the cabin and provides additional 'outdoor living space'. Just outside of your bedroom door you'll hear the sounds of the creek tumbling by on it's way to the Ocoee River. The deck features reclined bench seating positioned around a patio fireplace, and a table with 4 chairs for outdoor dining. Across the gravel driveway you'll see multiple flower gardens, a nice grassy field for sports, horse shoe pit, basketball court, and a creek for exploring.
It is about a 1 minute walk down to our riverside pavilion and swimming/fishing dock. Wildlife commonly seen are Great Blue Herrons, Kingfishers, wild ducks, bald eagles, river otters, and of course fish. We even saw a deer once swimming in the river!
We have been offering Ivy Cottage for nightly rentals for 18 years with plenty of repeat customers. Some of our previous guests comments for Ivy Cottage include 'One of the most beautiful peaceful places that we have ever been to...', 'This was one of the many great surprises my husband has given me over the years...', 'We had such a great time on our honeymoon! The Ivy Cottage cabin, fireplace, and atmosphere was an added touch to a stress free vacation. We can't wait to come back...', 'absolutely incredible! I was taken aback with the beauty and atmosphere of this cabin!', 'Total perfection in a small package'.

About: We are Kevin and Jenny Rogers. We 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 have enjoyed sharing our beautiful Ivy Cottage cabin with guests for the past 18 years.
This place was originally built as a riverside retreat by Jenny's late mother Warnie Elizabeth Dooly Finnell. She lived and worked in Cleveland, and came here to rest and play.
Why Cleveland: Cleveland is convenient to the beautiful Ocoee Region which is a great place to visit. The Cherokee National Forest is just 10 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: The best thing about Ivy Cottage is that it so dang cute. Round logs, exposed rafters, unique construction, a 'ships ladder' to the loft where 2 twin beds are built into the sloping roof, wide plank floors, and tastefully decorated, and that's just the inside. Step out of the master bedroom onto a deck full of amenities, and the sounds of a creek tumbling by below. Some of our guests enjoy the simple beauty of their cabin and surroundings, rarely leaving our property. Have a campfire on the patio, read, tell stories or just listen to the night sounds. We have 17 wooded acres where you can take a stroll, 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 just 20 minutes from Cleveland and 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. I like going to the 'Big' city of Cleveland, but I'd rather sleep here at Ivy Cottage.
