I'm going to be in Cherokee in June with 8 other family members. I've been looking for a place to stay that is on the river where my 2 girls, ages 9 & 12, could play in the water. None of us are fussy...clean, good management & inexpensive is all we need. I've looked into the Pink Motel, Pioneer Motel & Cabins and the Newfound Lodge. I like what I have seen on the internet for Newfound Lodge, but it was the only one that said the river was too rough near their property for the girls to play in and suggested going down to the Island's Park if they wanted to get wet. Do you have any opinions as to these accommodations or can suggest any others that I haven't mentioned? Also, when we are in town, we are going to visit the Indian Village and see Unto These Hills. Do you know how much time needs to be allotted to the village and whether the guided tour is worth the extra $5-$6?
