The secluded cabins at Coffee Creek Ranch may look rustic from the outside but the atmosphere inside is cozy. Each cabin has a theme-based on its brand. Circle B, for example, is decorated with bears, Bigfoot, and butterflies. All fifteen cabins have tall pines and ceiling fans to help keep them cool. One ranch house room and two cabins are equipped for the handicapped. Most family cabins have wood-burning stoves where a view of the fire sets the mood for those “romantic weekend getaways” for couples.

The cabins do not have air conditioning. This is because they do not need it. The way the cabins were constructed allows the cooler air to be trapped as well as the cabins being under tree cover out of direct sunlight. Also, there is no Wi-Fi in the cabins, only around certain areas of the Main Lodge. There are no refrigerators and / or coffee makers in the cabins. The reason for this is because the ranch runs on a generator system and therefore, every cabin is only allocated a certain amount of wattage.

The majority of the Grove Area does have parking areas near and around the cabins. Most of the cabins surrounding the Main Lodge do not have near parking and parking is provided in the main parking lot at the end of the driveway. In addition, there are laundry facilities available. The costs are 1.50 USD for a wash and 1 USD for a dryer.
