Neighborhood

Welcome Valley Village is located near the small town of Benton, Tennessee, on the shore of the Ocoee River. Nestled at the gateway of the Great Smoky Mountains and surrounded by protected forest land, the property is the perfect home base for exploring everything East Tennessee offers.

Made famous in part by the 1996 Olympics, thousands of visitors flock to the Ocoee every year to traverse its 3-mile stretch of world-class rapids. For younger adventurers and more leisurely-paced rafters, the nearby Hiwassee and Nantahala rivers offer a milder mountain river experience.
While you'll experience absolute peace in your remote surroundings, you'll be close to all the modern amenities you need to make the most of your stay. Grocery stores and restaurants can be found just 15 minutes down the road in Cleveland, Tennessee.

Just one mile east is the Cherokee National Forest, the largest tract of public land in Tennessee. There you'll find unspoiled forests and waterways, giving you ample opportunities for hiking, bird watching, hunting, & fishing.

A two-hour drive will deliver you to the north or south entrance of Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Experience fantastic wildlife and breathtaking views, hike part of the Appalachian Trail or make the trek up to Clingmans Dome, the Park's highest peak.

After you visit the Park, don't miss the towns of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Get your thrills at America's friendliest theme park, Dollywood, visit the Titanic Museum, Ripley's Believe it or Not, or take in one of their famous dinner shows.

For car and motorcycle enthusiasts, the area is home to the scenic Cherohala Skyway, Blue Ridge Parkway, and hundreds more miles of winding mountain roads, including the Tail of The Dragon, where thousands of drivers test their skills each year against 318 hairpin turns.

For a more urban experience, the city of Chattanooga is less than an hour away. Visit the Tennessee Aquarium, voted one of America's ten best by USA Today. Enjoy a bite to eat at the historic Chattanooga Choo Choo complex, which includes a brewery, distillery, several restaurants, and an array of seasonal activities. Experience culture and panoramic views from the Bluff View Arts District and Hunter Museum of American Art. Stroll across the Walnut Street pedestrian bridge to explore local shops in the quirky Northshore neighborhood, and be back to your cabin before dark.

Space

Welcome Valley Village, a Timberroot Rustic Retreat, consists of six beautiful cabins and three glamping wagons on a 17-acre gated property, surrounded by lush forests, winding trails, and over 900 feet of private riverfront on the world-famous Ocoee River. This property is owned and operated by Timberroot, a small, family-owned business that specializes in creating rustic spaces that allow you to relax, recharge, and reconnect with nature.

All three of our Conestoga Wagons are corralled around a fire pit to provide the most authentic portrayal of pioneer life. While we want you to feel like you are traveling down the Oregon trail, our wagon experience includes all the modern amenities of a feature-rich glamping experience.

Old Copper comfortably sleeps a family of 4 between the memory foam king bed and comfy twin bunks. The wagon's kitchenette includes a microwave, mini fridge, coffeemaker, and rustic washbasin sink with hot & cold running water.

You'll have private access to the ¾ bath assigned to your wagon in our custom-built bathhouse. In addition, you will have access to a shared utility room with a washer and dryer.

Enjoy the wonders of nature by sharing a meal with your family at your private dining pavilion or lounging around the shared fire pit and enjoying the crackle of a good campfire.

For a more private experience, rent all three wagons and have the shared amenities to yourself.

Please Note: We have a strict 4 person maximum, and are not able to accommodate more than 4 guests per wagon including children and infants.

NO PETS are allowed in the wagons under any circumstances. Welcome Valley Village offers several pet-friendly accommodations if you'd like to bring your four-legged friends.
