Welcome Valley Village is a great location for small corporate retreats and business meetings. Our Village offers a stark contrast to most office environments. Many former guests testify that they were able to get good quality work done here at our Village away from the daily distractions of their office.
Host your banquet at our open-air Riverside Pavilion. Many guests rent one or more cabins and incorporate overnight stays in their program. A group of up to 20 persons is a comfortable size for all five cabins, and ensures everyone their own bed. Also, special discounts apply when all five cabins are rented. Daily assemblies are generally held in our Riverside Pavilion (weather permitting) or inside either the Pines or the Ocoee House cabins.
Often, guests rent one cabin for a day meeting. Most groups choose to rent either the Pines or the Ocoee House cabin for day meetings because the living rooms are large and can accommodate groups of up to about 16 people comfortably. Also, during the winter time, it's nice to work in the presence of a warm crackling fire in these cabins' fireplaces.
Our Riverside Pavilion is a wonderful open-air location for meetings, cookouts, or catered meals during temperate months. Overhead ceiling fans and cool breezes from the river can make even the warmest days comfortable. Because the Ocoee House cabin is only about 100 feet away, we do not rent the Pavilion by itself. Rather if you rent the Ocoee House cabin, we reserve the Pavilion for the exclusive use of your group, for a nominal fee.
Our cabins do not have telephones, however most cell phone services receive a signal here. We can also provide fax services or temporarily hook up your laptop computers in our office.
We will be happy to help you arrange recreational activities or food services for your group.
Comments from previous corporate clients
I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent vendor appreciation day at Welcome Valley Village. Our guests were certainly impressed and many expressed a desire to return with their families...Thank you for everything, and Welcome Valley will certainly be in our plans for future outings.

"The benefits I found from using the cabins for management meetings:
- It created a relaxed and comfortable environment.
- Our time was productive and it boosted morale and improved our "teamwork" approach.
- Staff appreciated the opportunity to get away to a "friendly" environment.
- The cabins are close, so therefore we didn't lose valuable time to travel.
- It provided an atmosphere that you do not get in a conference/meeting room."

Welcome Valley Village is a wonderful place to experience the serenity and beauty of nature in style and comfort. It is a place where one's soul feels pampered. Our staff has thoroughly enjoyed having our annual Christmas dinner there for the past few years.

The surprise of receiving an employee appreciation gift for Christmas became something very special when I arrived at Welcome Valley Village. The log cabin accommodations on the river are 5-star including a personal note of welcome as you enter the cabin. My fly fishing trip and stay at Welcome Valley will be a topic of conversation until we return for another visit.

I brought my management team together for a three day sales management training / sales strategy meeting this past May. I chose the Eastern Tennessee area based on the central location for the group. How fortunate to find such a tranquil and beautiful setting in Welcome Valley Village. We spent team building time on the water and hiking in the mountains. The Pines cabin served us well as a meeting location. I am sure to return again!
