Our lodge is located on the south side of Sugarloaf Mountain just 12 miles from the Georgia line and less than a mile from the Kings Slouth Boat Ramp into Lake Ocoee (aka Parksville Lake). Whether you want to sit the day away on the porch reading a good book or exploring the attractions in nearby Ocoee, Tennessee and in the North Georgia and North Carolina Mountains; Sugarloaf Lodge is a great location. Whitewater Rafting outfitters are available right off the main highway less than 10 minutes away. Want to spend the day hiking, you have easy access to the Cherokee National Forest by walking out the back door or taking a short drive. Want to enjoy the day on the lake you can bring your own boat or contact the Ocoee Marina Inn to rent one for the day. With easy access to the main highways you can get to Cleveland, Tennessee with a short drive. Cleveland has lots of restaurants, a cinema, shopping and anything else you might need. Want to make a day trip to Chattanooga, its just 35 miles away. Enjoy the mall, shopping, beautiful Lookout Mountain, Ruby Falls, Tennessee Aquarium and more. Want to explore further north enjoy the scenic drive over the mountains to Murphy, North Carolina or Tellico Plains, Tennessee.

Some of our families best memories come from Whitewater Rafting down the Ocoee River, hiking in the Cherokee National Forest and spending the evenings on the front porch swing and enjoy the starry night.


Manager info

About: I currently live in Fayetteville, Georgia. I work for the family business. I don't have as much time to spend my weekends away as I once had, but I enjoy the lodge on the odd weekend I can get away.

Why Ocoee, TN, USA:
My parents built this lodge 20+ years ago as a family vacation home. After leaving the Navy my parents found themselves looking for a close to home getaway near the Ocoee River. After years of camping, two children and a lot of hard work they built the Sugarloaf Lodge. As a family we have enjoyed the lodge with friends and family. Recently we made the decision to open our home up to other large families and groups to share our relaxing retreat.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is the place to get away from it all.
