Living Room
Pile onto the plump sofas for a rest after hiking to waterfalls in the national park, exploring downtown shops, or enjoying a dinner show. The living room is inviting, to say the least, with raised ceilings, a stone gas fireplace, and an open concept to keep everyone connected. 

Sip morning coffee while chatting with friends on the sofa. Curl up with your spouse on the loveseat to watch entertainment on the big screen TV. And keep snacks and drinks on the coffee table next to a deck of cards. The living room is a nice space to gather your family or friends to chat about plans for the day as well.

With fresh ingredients from local farmers markets and mixes from The Old Mill plus all the tools you’ll need in the fully equipped kitchen at this Pigeon Forge cabin, you’re all set to prep and serve delicious meals throughout your stay in the Smokies. 

Counter space is plentiful and stretches into a breakfast bar with stools. Appliances, dishes, cutlery, cooking utensils, mugs, and glasses are stocked and ready. Make homemade recipes on the stove, bake fresh treats in the oven, keep leftovers in the fridge/freezer, brew pots of coffee anytime, reheat food in the microwave, and toss dishes into the dishwasher for easier cleanups. 

Dining Area
Just off the kitchen space is the dining area that boasts a wooden table with matching chairs so everyone can enjoy mealtimes together. The table is versatile for what you need and can be used to set up a homeschool station, prop open a laptop for a spell, make arts and crafts, or play board and card games. 

Rec Loft
For more fun, venture to the recreation loft that features a cool pool table for games at your cabin rental in Pigeon Forge. There is also a multicade, so you can try out your arcade game skills. There’s a ceiling fan to keep cool on warmer days, and you can lounge or nap on the futon. It’s also a nice spot to knock back a few locally crafted brews, read a book with the reading lamp, and view the towering trees just outside. 

When you’re feeling sleepy or just want some alone time for a little while, slip away to your bedroom retreat at this Pigeon Forge cabin in the Smokies. Each bedroom has a TV for entertainment anytime, so there’s no fighting over the remote. Additionally, each bedroom features a king-size log bed, matching furnishings, a ceiling fan, and an indoor jetted tub!

Draw a hot bubble bath anytime. With dancing candlelight, a funny podcast, or relaxing tunes, you’ll have a real spa experience whenever you please. Change into your favorite pajamas and dive into the king sheets to read a book, cuddle with your spouse, or watch something. Other guests or the kids can spread out on the futon and sleeper sofa in the home, and there are 2 full bathrooms to make getting ready for bed or the day easier for your group. 

Outdoor Spaces
Drive along flat, paved roads to reach this Pigeon Forge cabin in the trees. The driveway is also flat and paved and features parking for 3. On the front porch, you can sway in the porch swing with a warm blanket and a good book, sip morning coffee in the rocking chairs, or simply take in the fresh mountain air. 

Wooded views can be seen from the cabin, and the back deck features more rockers to enjoy as well as a steamy hot tub with massaging jets, ideal after riding horses, ziplining, or shopping all day. For Smoky meals, fire up the charcoal, picnic-style grill and toss on a few steaks, veggies, or vegan burgers! 

Other Amenities
With a provided washer and dryer, you’ll be able to wash out stains from Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen before they set in and reuse provided towels to cut down on the packing. Free high speed internet access is also available and is great for homeschooling in the Smokies, looking up more things to do in the area, and checking important emails while away.

A top amenity in summer has to be the community pool within the Arrowhead Resort! Yep, Bear Retreat gives YOU full access to the resort swimming pool. So, don’t forget to bring your swimsuits, pool noodles, floaties, and sunblock to kick back at the pool. The kids are going to thank you for this one!

Guest Reviews

Reviews for Bear Retreat

  • "The cabin was very clean and had all the amenities we needed for a nice getaway weekend with friends. It's super close to the parkway, which makes it convenient to get to attractions and shopping and eating out if you choose to eat out. The beds were very comfortable and the hot tub was amazing! My only suggestion would be to have a few board games available. We enjoyed playing pool but would have enjoyed some other games also. Overall, it is a wonderful place to stay. Will definitely consider this cabin again with friends. And definitely Cabins 4 You for future rentals."

  • "We have used cabins for you multiple times and always had a good experience. There cabins are very nice and always clean."

  • "Rating 1-10 I give VRBO & cabins for you a 10 from the advertisement to the agents to the customer service support team everyone was wonderful accurate and speedy cabin was awesome. My first time in Tennessee and I had a blast. Thanks to all that made our vacation great."

  • "My family had a wonderful time. The cabin was beautiful. Jacuzzi tub in both bedrooms, a hot tub out back, beautiful decor. 10 minutes from downtown."

  • "This cabin was just as described. It was cozy and inviting. It was very well stocked: the kitchen had every item needed (from coffee pot to crock pot). There were plenty of towels and linens. There was toilet paper and small soap - we did bring our own shampoo (that was the only thing missing in the bathroom). We used the outdoor grill every night. The cabin is located at the end of the street, which is nice. The road leading up to it is pretty steep though. We loved that it was not on the main parkway. We could go out for the day to the national park or shopping or whatever…and then come back to a nice relaxing atmosphere"

  • "We had a wonderful stay and really enjoyed our cabin. We would definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a cozy, comfortable place to stay!"

  • "We enjoyed our cabin. It was clean and the perfect size for our family!"

  • "Always stay for the rod run. It's always a nice time!"

  • "We come every year to this area. We loved the location of this cabin. Our vaction was perfect. Hope to re-book this cabin again."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was nice and cozy. The pool is just a short drive to use and easily accessible. We did have an issue with the hot tub kicking off the breaker, but management sent a man within a few hours to rectify the situation. All in all, we were happy and content and realize sometimes things happen. We felt the management were professional and accommodating. Thank you and we will come again!"

  • "Overall great time. quiet, could sleep in. road was a little tight. Overall great time"

  • "This was a great cabin to stay in! It is close to the main street going through Pigeon Forge, but yet off the beaten path enough where it's quiet. There are several other cabins around you and the roads are steep, but you get used to driving on them quickly. We thought the cabin had 3 bedrooms, but that was our error. There is a futon and the couch pulls out in addition to 2 large master bedrooms. The hot tub was nice- it tripped the breaker once, but we were able to switch it back on our own. The flushing mechanism was broken on the toilet in one bathroom when we arrived. I called the service number and talked to someone that said they would get in touch with maintenance, but they never came to fix it. We just had to flush by taking the top lid off...not terrible, but I thought it was strange they didn't come to fix it. The kids liked the gaming system upstairs when we were at the cabin. They also enjoyed the pool, which was just a short drive away. Bring extra trash bags, laundry soap, and dish soap. They do provide some samples. Bring coffee filters if you plan to make coffee- regular coffee maker, no Keurig. Overall, it was a great stay- nice if you have up to 8 people like we did. Definitely recommend!"

  • "The cabin is beautiful. Everything was clean and the beds were very comfortable."

  • "Had an amazing time at Bear Retreat Cabin w/ the Family. It is exactly as the pics show. and even nicer. Will be definitely going back and staying again."

  • "Beautiful cabin, very clean. Had fun things for the kids to enjoy."
