Cabins On The Ocoee River In Tennessee

Go whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.

The Ocoee River, in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in southeast Tennessee, is known for world-class whitewater rafting on Class III or IV rapids. As the most popular whitewater river in the U.S., more than 300,000 people rafted down the Ocoee in 2009. On the border of the Cherokee National Forest, the area also features hiking and biking. Visitors who come to this area to enjoy these activities find cabins that offer comfortable accommodations.

Welcome Valley Village

Welcome Valley Village is located less than an hour’s drive from Chattanooga, Tennessee, and just two miles outside of the Cherokee National Forest near the whitewater outfitters on the Ocoee River. Spend your day on the Ocoee rafting, tubing or fishing, or opt to go horseback or mountain bike riding and hiking in the the National Forest. After an activity-filled day in the clear mountain air, you will enjoy coming “home” to one of Welcome Valley Village’s five log cabins. Placed on their 17-acre property to utilize the breathtaking views of river, creek or woods, the cabins feature large porches, fireplaces and whirlpool baths. Firewood is provided in winter months. All the cabins are completely equipped with full kitchens, TVs with DVD players, grills, linens, towels, central heat and air conditioning; guests have to bring only one item: themselves. Cabins can sleep a couple comfortably, or a large family of eight to nine people can stay.
