Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10 No Cleaning Fees

Relax and enjoy the sounds of nature in this 2 bedroom, 3 bath cabin on the banks of the Ocoee River.

The cabin sleeps 10 and offers something for everyone. The balcony off the sleeping loft is the perfect place for morning coffee while gazing across the river at the Cherokee National Forest in the distance; or maybe that last glass of wine in the evening as you marvel at the countless twinkling stars. There's a wraparound porch on the main floor with rocking chairs and a porch swing for relaxing. From the walkout basement, you'll find a hot tub waiting for you after a day of hiking or whitewater rafting. In the back yard there's a playground for the kiddos and a deck perched above the river with a fire pit close by for those chilly evenings when s'mores are in order. Inside, there's a wood burning fireplace and 2 TVs with cable and wireless internet.

We regret that all furry friends must be let at home. The owner is allergic to animals and uses the cabin often.

About Cindy & Larry Tipton

We are grandparents who wanted a place for our nine grandchildren to enjoy.

Cindy & Larry Tipton purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Cindy & Larry Tipton chose Tennessee

We chose this property because it is located along the part of the Ocoee River where the water level is controlled by the dams. In the morning the water is only ankle deep and the little ones can play safely. There's even an island about a 100 yards upstream where the older ones enjoy exploring. About 3:00 in the afternoon, the water begins to rise and it's time to bring out the floats.

Great home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Ocoee River's Edge is a really great vacation rental! The ages of our family members ranged from a 7 month old to teens to a pair of 62 year olds. The home was even better than described. The kitchen, bathrooms and laundry area were well stocked. We had the Keurig and the electric griddle going full blast every morning. Other rentals I've used have had mismatched dishes and utensils. I really appreciated that there were plenty of matching dishes, glasses and tableware for all. The dishwasher was the best one I have ever used. Outside the middle deck got a lot of use whether it be grilling a meal, playing games at the table or just swinging and conversing. I loved viewing the stars and the kids loved chasing fire flies. The fire pit at the back of the property was used for s'mores night. We all enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and the Ocoee River at the back of the property. We had issues with the hot tub one day so I called the owners. Cindy came right over, worked on it out in the rain, and remedied the situation. We were able to be back in the hot tub later that night.

There are many things to do in the area not far from the house which is another plus to this property. The teens and grown children went whitewater rafting twice. We all hiked Benton Falls and several went fishing. Cindy told us where we could park up river and float back down to the property. So we tethered our floats together and took a leisurely trip we all could enjoy down the river.

Two side notes: If you plan on doing a lot of your own cooking, you might want to bring a few plastic food storage containers for leftovers. We went through a lot of plastic storage bags since we only found one large and one small food storage container.

Also be aware that the hanging plants around the deck have an automatic watering system so use caution if leaving items on or close to the railing. (The dove nesting in the hanging plant across from the kitchen window didn't seem to mind.) You can turn the water off at the outside faucet hookup. Just remember to turn it back on.

I would definitely use this rental again and hope to be able to return in the future. You won't be sorry if you choose this rental for your next vacation!

Exceptional accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 adults + 4 kids thoroughly enjoyed our short stay there at Ocoee River's Edge. The home was very clean & well cared for. Plenty of inside space & outside space for the family to gather together or seek out quiet time alone. Will definitely stay again if we are in the area.

Beautiful. Clean, and roomy Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful place with so much to enjoy. Everything about this place was awesome. Condo was fully stocked with everything you would need. Just bring your main food and enjoy. Very clean, beds were wonderful (better than home), lots of room, kitchen was awesome. Grilled out, enjoyed the hot tub, played in the river, sat on the deck listening to the animals at night and listen to the birds sing in the mornings. My husband doesn't like to go much but is ready to come back next year. It was perfect. We attended our cousins wedding and couldn't have been more happy of where we picked to stay. Only one suggestion would be a better spatula(hamburger flipper, egg turner) for the pans inside because the only one I found was flimsy, but made due. Thanks for sharing your condo. We tried to keep it just as nice as we found it. It truly was a great vacation.

Nice house right on the river.

  • 4 of 5

The house was wonderful. Just enough beds and bathrooms for our family of seven. We had a great time fishing in the river and listening to my son play his guitar while we all sang around the fire pit. Already thinking of doing it again next year.
