Float Your Boat

Mark your calendar and start stashing away anything that floats – rubber ducks, Frisbees, your favorite flip-flops. It’s time to start building a river-worthy raft for Gatlinburg’s popular River Raft Regatta. The fun kicks off downtown at noon on July 4 on the Little Pigeon River, bringing locals and lots of guests of Gatlinburg hotels to compete in this unmanned river raft race. Build a boat using anything that floats, except balls or plastic eggs (naturally), and let the fun begin. Register and mingle with your fellow competitors between 10 am and noon at the Christ in the Smokies bridge. And remember, the race is on July 4, making American flag sails a properly patriotic flourish.

Met my sister here for a getaway. We had a wonderful experience. Check in was quick and easy, the indoor pool and hot tub were refreshing, the wine and cheese was great, the milk and cookies were awesome, and sitting on the balcony listening the the creek was a respite. Highly recommend this as the place to stay in Galinburg! - Bec B
We stayed here for one night while waiting for our cabin to be ready, what a find. The room was very clean and the view of the creek was really great, loved listening to the water at night. They had wine and cheese at night as well as milk and cookies, but my wifes favorite thing was the heated floor tiles in the bathroom. They also have a grill and a firepit available. We will stay here again and probably for longer. - nickyplumb

What an awesome place to stay. My family just came home after staying at Zoder's for 5 nights. We stated in a tower suite. We loved the room! The staff was excellent. My mom is handicapped And walks with a cane. Jaime came up several time with the golf cart and picked her up so she didn't have to walk to the trolley stop. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. We've already decided this is where we are staying again next year. - Lacy C

My husband and I stayed at Zoders this past weekend, we had a great stay. Just a short walk to the down town shops and restaurants. Awesome creek view room, very clean, Enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pools. Cookies and milk from 7-10 was great. Staff is very friendly. We cant wait to go back. - Hagen L

I cant say enough about what a great place this is....Wendy (front desk) was a Godsend. Nothing can beat listening to the creek outside your back door except for how friendly every employee was...Thanks guys for helping us have the best vacation ever....The room was super clean, the inside pool with the waterfall was refreshing and to beat it all they serve you wine, cheese, milk and cookies.... - vahillbilly69

Booked 2 tower suites for a family vacation. They were so clean and lot's of room. Check in was fast and friendly. We enjoyed the wine and our granddaughter loved the cookies and milk. We used the BBQ three times for supper. So nice not having to go out to eat. The ladies serving the breakfast and the evening snacks were so nice. Could not have picked a better spot. Can not think of anything we were disappointed in. Would not stay anywhere else if we return. - fallsgirl
We have been staying at Zoders periodically for forty years. We always ask for a room with a balcony that overlooks the stream. We have never been disappointed. We love to sleep to the sound of the water rushing down the stream. The hotel is kept up very well, and the grounds are very nice. Some of the rooms are beginning to look a little dated, but we can always count on the rooms being very clean and comfortable. Location is great as well. Breakfast is typical, but they offer wine and cheese, and cookies and milk in the evenings. I would highly recommend this hotel. travelinbandman
