Overview

About the property

Log Cabin 2 bedrooms, full bath with jacuzzi, and kitchen. Sleeps 1-4 persons.

The Ivy Cottage is our smallest and most affordable log cabin. This adorable 450 square foot two-story log cabin makes no concessions when it comes to comfortable furnishings and charm. It's really 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. This is the only TV in the cabin. Additional sleeping is available on two twin beds located in the loft, which is accessed by a ' ship's ladder '. A word of warning, the upstairs may be unsuitable for very young or rambunctious children. The living room is small but is made very comfortable with 2 wing-back chairs, and one has an ottoman. The cottage has central heat and air conditioning.

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. There are dishes, cooking, and eating utensils. There is a park style charcoal grill outside.

The bathroom has a full size shower/tub combination with whirlpool jets and a single basin sink. We believe that you will find the furnishings very pleasing right down to the hand carved "kissing squirrels."

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 chairs for outdoor dining. Winter rentals enjoy 2 free bundles of firewood per night. Additional firewood can be purchased for $5/bundle.

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. The river is controlled by the Ocoee No. 1 Dam, and is subject to changes related to water releases. Typically mornings provide a placid river about 3' deep with little to no current. You can easily spot fish and see the bottom. Swimming is easiest during this time of day. In the afternoons water releases will raise the level of the river to about 6' and the current becomes quite swift. Competent swimmers can still swim during this time if you stay close to the shore. The river becomes deep enough to jump off of our dock during these high water periods.

Wildlife commonly seen along the river include Great Blue Herons, Kingfishers, wild ducks, bald eagles, river otters, coyotes, raccoons, and of course fish. We even saw a deer once swimming in the river!

We have been offering our Ivy Cottage for nightly rentals for 22 years and enjoy lots of repeat guests. 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'.

Additional information about rental rates

Pet Fee C$13.5
Tax Rate 12.25%

There is a 2 NIGHT MINIMUM booking required on ALL weekends and during Summer, unless only 1 night is available. ONE NIGHT RENTALS ARE CONSIDERED on Sunday-Thursday nights. A booking of 5 or more nights will receive a 10% discount off of the published rates. Base rates cover up to 4 guests. Additional guests are $5/child (2-17yrs)/night or $10/adult/night. We do not take a cash damage deposit upfront, rather you must provide a credit card to imprint at check-in as a Security Deposit. Extra charges for damages are extremely rare.

Ignore the "Manager's Cancellation Policy" listed below. It is wrong and I can't seem to change it. Here's our policy. We collect the first night's rent in advance to confirm a reservation, or first 2 nights for bookings of 5 or more nights. Cancellations received 30 days or more prior to arrival receive a full refund less $10. If you cancel within 30 days of arrival you would lose your down payment unless we are able to re-book the cabin, in which case we refund less $10.

Manager's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
