I am sure that the friendly folks at Docks can answer that question as is I have never had to cancel, it is so lovely and close to the Smokies and Cades Cove. Their phone number is: 865-448-2234 address: 8219 State Hwy 73 Townsend, TN. 37882. No pets are allowed(sorry, :( ) Smoking is only allowed outside, but you have the nice chairs to sit in and look over at the mountains as the sun rises!

Looking to book July 18th and leave on 19th.
Not sure I understand the question, but I think you will appreciate the price and the cleanliness of the motel. It is right on the river, and has a place to have a picnic there if you choose. They have cabins and rooms, and I am pretty sure you can do a one night on the rooms if there is a vacancy. Hope you enjoy your stay.

"They do have a few cabins with river view. Also like what we had with a hot tub."
"Choosing a room or cabin here depends on what you want to do while here. I like the rooms with the full kitchen."
"the cabins along the river have a great setting"
"Call in advance for reservations."
"The river cabins are away from the others and possibly quieter."
