HISTORY

Chena Hot Springs Resort was established in 1905. The Ferree Cabin was originally built in 1979. The current owners purchased the cabin from the original owner who had owned it for almost 30 years in 2008. It took two years of long weekends and lots of elbow grease to totally renovate the cabin inside and out and make it the amazing getaway it is today!
