Location: Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
Looking for the perfect place to host a family gathering? Need a break from work, school, and the everyday stresses of life? A Sweet Retreat is a beautiful and inviting Smoky Mountain cabin for family and friends to spend quality time together. All the while, you are just 7 miles from the bustling downtown Pigeon Forge! The list of amenities is impressive, the easily-accessible cabin offers a comfortable place for everyone – even your pets!
A Sweet Retreat gives its visitors the full Smoky Mountain cabin life experience. Drive along the winding, scenic mountain roads to come upon the breathtaking Sweet Retreat. As if the picturesque beauty of the outside of your mountain getaway among the evergreens and oaks were not exciting enough, the inside of this home will make you never want to leave. The warm wood of this structure is complemented by natural décor such as the stone fireplace and a large antler chandelier.
No Smoky Mountain cabin experience would be complete without the ambiance of Southern hospitality. It’s characterized in large, comfy leather couches and a dining big enough for 8 guests. Of course, here in the South, there’s always room for more! Plus, the couches are close enough to eat at the coffee table; an island in the kitchen offers even more seating! If you're preparing in-cabin meals, you'll find plenty of tools, cutlery, utensils, pots and pans, and appliances within reach. And if you're not up for doing all the work, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are home to some of the best Southern kitchens of Tennessee – from Bennett's Pit Bar-B-Que to The Old Mill.
There is so much to do at the pet-friendly A Sweet Retreat that you just may need to stay an extra day! This cabin has a jetted tub, corn hole boards, a pool table, an air hockey table, and plenty of space for board games. Maybe you came to relax to the extreme. While your kids or other guests are excitedly yelling over air hockey or card games, take the stone path to the iron fire pit where you can unwind. Take a breather with your coffee or beer in the chairs by the fire and soak in the serenity of the mountains.
This spacious cabin has 4 bedrooms on the main floor, all with king-size beds. Each bedroom even has its own TV, so there will be no fighting over the remote. The bedrooms have amenities for comfort and convenience, from ceiling fans and windows to dressers for unpacking. They also feature cozy Smoky Mountain décor, making you right at home in the mountains. At the end of a busy day, these spaces will welcome you in for a good night’s rest.
Located on the main floor, adjacent to two of the bedrooms, two large bathrooms offer easy access and space to get ready. Both house large jetted tubs and stand-up, glass-door showers with benches. One also features handicap rails, added to the cabin’s accessibility.
The living room area is located on the main floor along with the kitchen and dining room, but don’t let the functionality of this shared space fool you – it is quite spacious! The open floor plan and high loft ceilings ensure that even a group of 12 to 14 people never feel crowded. The living room has 2 large leather couches and 2 comfy armchairs. A good-sized coffee table sits in the middle, making this living area great for game night and spillover from the dining room table. The staple of this room is the wood-burning stone fireplace. To the left of the fireplace is an LED big screen TV placed just high enough for optimal viewing for everyone. Bringing Blu-ray movies with you for lazy cabin days? Great! The living room has a Blu-ray player with Netflix access, so you can lounge and stream all day!
Adjacent to the kitchen and living room, the dining room area has a large wooden table with 5 chairs and a long bench that seats 3 more. The size of this table makes sitting around the table with the whole family easy and uncrowded. Don’t worry about what dinnerware to bring, because this cabin is already stocked with beautiful pieces when a nice meal calls for more than paper plates and plastic forks. It’s a great place to sit down and enjoy each other’s company.
The cabin and its décor may give you a rustic mountain feeling, but the lovely kitchen is certainly not lacking with all its up-to-date appliances. The large refrigerator means plenty of space for groceries and cold drinks. The spacious countertops and supplied cookware make cooking in the cabin a stress-free endeavor. The kitchen also includes a 4-eye stovetop oven, a dishwasher, toaster, coffeemaker, blender, and microwave. So, even when you don’t find yourself cooking a full meal, making your morning coffee or smoothie is easy to do. Make your morning drink and just walk a few steps outside to enjoy the relaxing rocking chairs and mountain air.
The crown jewel of any Smoky Mountain cabin is its deck, and A Sweet Escape does not leave anything for want. As soon as you walk onto the porch from the driveway, you feel more serene. Enjoy the serenity with a glass of wine and a forested landscape. Toss something on the grill as you sit around the picnic table with friends and a cold drink in hand. On one side of the cabin, the porch is already set up for a game of corn hole. The other side has a big jetted tub ready for a soak. Simply sitting in the porch swing with your special person, soaking it all in, just may be exactly what you needed.
Follow the artistically crafted handrails up the stairs to the open loft, where hours of fun await in the game room. This is the perfect space to send the kids when parents want to relax, but adults will definitely enjoy the upstairs amenities, too! The loft has a pool table, air hockey table, and foosball table. There is also another large flatscreen TV with a huge sectional couch for kicking back and watching all the fun. The large windows at the end of the room are lined with benches with cushions, perfect for sitting to read a book or waiting your turn to take the pool table from the reigning champion.
When you're ready to explore and stretch your legs, there is plenty to do in the Smokies. Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are home to so many exciting things to do and see! No matter your trip type, size of group, or budget, there is something for every day of your visit. Tubing down the Little Pigeon River is relaxing for adults and so much fun for kids, or you can kick it up a notch with a whitewater rafting trip. Downtown Pigeon Forge is filled with shops, arcades, go kart tracks, great restaurants, and fun attractions like Dollywood and The Island. Gatlinburg is home to dozens more attractions, shops, and restaurants, so there’s never a shortage of things to do. And you don’t have to stay in town to experience the Smokies.

Here are just a few local favorites:
