... the rapids but from the cold water splashing us). The first rapids were Class 2 and Class 3. They were just the right amount of fun. Then we approached the Class 4 rapids. Mike and I both almost lost it.
In fact Mike had to overcompensate once and ended up in the bottom of the raft. But that was better than the bottom of the river. One of the guys on ...

After a couple of pics we took another detour to Cumberland Falls which is located in Kentucky in the Daniel Boone Forest. Up until this time, I had seen beautiful homes and horse ranches in Kentucky. I

... in Peru! We soon made it to the small waterfall, which was beautiful, and you were able to walk behind and see through the water. I would upload a really cool picture of me behind it, if it wasn't for Lois taking a blurred photo, where you could only just about make out that there was a waterfall! Anyway we made our way back down the trek, where some exhausted Americans asked us how long left until the waterfall, and when we told them they were a quarter of the ...
We started our build day early today to try to avoid the heat. Alarms starting going off around 6:15. We ate some breakfast (cereal and bagels today), and headed off to the build site. It wasn't too far away so half of us rode in the van and the other half of us rode our bikes. I was in the group that rode in the van. We get to the site just after 7:00 and get to work. Today I was mostly involved with sodding and cleaning. It's been nice to work on these build sites, and the way ...
Today was awesome. The perfect 40-mile, mostly downhill recovery spin through a national park, sprinkled with swim holes, creeks, and bridge jumping/rope swings en route. I joined Taylor, Jamie, Annie, and Alicia for this beautiful day and we cruised the first 20 miles, stopping briefly for some sunrise yoga with the the Great Smokey Mountains as our "studio." At mile 20, we joined up with the rest of the bike and build clan for some swimming and relaxing before riding about another ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Rocky Waters Motor Inn Gatlinburg
Great deal! I will stay here again!
Well, for the money, this is the best deal in Gatlinburg. It is very clean and in a convenient location where you can walk to everything. It does have balconies that overlook the river and the street. I love it because who wants to spend all of their money on a room when you hardly stay in it anyway. It is really a basic hotel room but it has a refrigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer, you name it. And it is CLEAN.
That is the main reason I love it. I have stayed at dumps in the middle of town for twice this price. Now it is not a huge, luxury hotel but who would expect one for this price. I say, if you want the best deal and a nice place to stay, then stay here. Excellent!
Heaven in Gatlinburg
The Rocky Waters Motor Inn (the one by the highway coming in) makes my visit complete everytime I go there. This is the ultimate experience for me for the last 10 years at least. It is close to everything, flowing water on the deck and the rooms are nice. I personally recommend this motel. Keep up this property.
We stay here every year
My Husband and I stay at Rocky Waters every year and we just love it. The staff at the motel are very nice and polite and do everything to make our stay as nice as it can be .Now we have family that comes with us and they love it too!You can't go wrong staying at Rocky Waters.Sincerely,The Walker's
We stayed 4 nights at Rocky Waters. The first thing anyone should know is that although all their rooms do overlook the river, the river runs along the main street in Gatlinburg. So you not only overlook the river, you overlook the traffic. As we were there on the "shoulder" between summer vacations and fall foliage, it wasn't as bad as it might have been, and the river does rather muffle the noise of the traffic. The room was clean, but rather overstuffed with furniture. It is an older motel trying to keep up with all the amenities offered in the newer ones. The outer hall from the parking lot was rather ratty, but on the upside, being partially inside and partially outside, it was more quiet than either a fully inside or outside. The worst thing about the room was the tub/toilet facility. It was so small that you banged your elbow on the tissue holder everytime you sat on the toilet. The price was reasonable, especially after I found a coupon for $10 off for each night of our stay ($40!) on their website. All in all, I would probably stay there again.
We have stayed at the Inn several times. If you can't decide between a quiet retreat in the mountains or a stay in town this is the place. The rooms are clean, comfortable and right on the river. Even though you are in the middle of town it seems like you are all alone on a mountain stream. At night lite the fireplace and crack the window so you can hear the river. It is wonderful!!
I can't say enough about this place. We stayed here a few years ago and were most impressed. The price was reasonable, the fireplace in our room made for luxurious ambiance, the view from our room (of the creek with the ducks) just added to the value. I don't normally write reviews like this, but I am now recommending this inn to a friend and came across this website. I give Rocky Waters the highest rating possible.p.s. many thanks to the staff for making our stay so enjoyable!
very clean rooms I would stay there again.
Loved the Pools
