PHOTOS: Tour the New Copper Creek Cascade Cabins at Wilderness Lodge

Copper Creek Villas & Cabins are the newest addition to the DVC lineup of offerings. Located at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, over 186 vacation homes were part of the addition. This includes the Deluxe Studios (sleeps 4), One-Bedroom Villa (sleeps 4), Two-Bedroom Villa (sleeps 8), Grand Villa (sleeps 12), and the Cascade Cabin (sleeps 8). We’ll have a look at the One-Bedroom and Grand Villa later, but first let’s take a tour around the Cascade Cabin.

Located on the shores of Bay Lake are 26 private Cascade Cabins. What stuck out to me was how secluded you felt. These cabins are located across a small foot bridge and tall pines that separate you from the rest of the resort.

Small touches like the paw prints of local bears remind you that you aren’t at a hotel anymore, but rather deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest.

As you make your way into the entryway, you’re met with a combination of modern elements that have been fused with natural materials.

A short hallway leads to the master bedroom on one side and a second bedroom on the other. Let’s take a look at the second bedroom first. Featuring a queen-size bed, there is also a window nook with additional storage.

It wouldn’t be a Wilderness Lodge offering if there wasn’t some tie-in with Chip and Dale. They make an appearance when the pull-down bed is opened.

Making our way to the attached second bathroom, we find all the modern accommodations we could need with a nod back to the fact that you’re in the Pacific Northwest.

A few steps down the main entryway is the Master Bedroom. This room features a king-size bed and access to the outdoor wrap-around porch.

The Master Bathroom features walk-in shower and bubble-jet tub.

Of course, there is a TV embedded in the mirror should you find yourself wanting to spend as much time in this bathroom as I did.

Onto the main living space, and the payoff moment for the Cascade Cabins. The spacious living room features all of the natural, warm tonal elements that you would expect from a premium experience at Wilderness Lodge.

On the left side of the room is the TV, fireplace, and lounging area. By the way, that fireplace can be enjoyed from the interior or the exterior wrap-around porch.

To the right, you have the kitchen and dining area.

Making our way out to the porch, we’re immediately met with a fantastic view of Bay Lake and the wilderness that surrounds it.

The entire porch is completely screened in, including the drop pool.

The Cascade Cabins are only a part of the large Copper Creek overhaul. The Copper Creek Villas & Cabins are built on the idea of transporting guests to the legendary mining and railroad history of the Pacific Northwest. We’ll be taking a look at how Disney accomplished this with their One-Bedroom and Grand Villa in a later post.
