The cabin is also pet friendly and even has some handicap features, making it more easily accessible. If you’re looking to make your large group stay entertaining, convenient, and memorable, Big Forest Lodge is the perfect large cabin in Pigeon Forge for YOU!

Living Room
Hold team meetings, lounge with your best pals, forge new bonds with coworkers, and unwind at the end of each day in the living room at Big Forest Lodge. The leather sofas, decorative area rug, and stacked stone (electric and heated) fireplace really compliment the gray hardwoods throughout the room and nature scenery through the large windows. This space is cozy, comfortable, and ready for group entertainment on the big screen TV! Unwind with a cup of joe and a book in the mornings or invite your bestie for a midnight chat and treats here.

With an open concept throughout the home, you’ll find the kitchen perfectly placed within steps from the living and dining areas, keeping conversations going without a pause. With a wall of windows within sight, the Smokies will feel ever so close when prepping and cooking meals. This fully equipped kitchen boasts beautiful cream cabinetry, an oversized island, double the appliances (including refrigerators, stoves, microwaves, and dishwashers) plus plenty of dinnerware, cookware, cutlery, and more. As a bonus, there are 3 coffeemakers so everyone in your group can grab a cup of coffee without a hassle in the mornings! What’s more, the massive island features tons of extra counter space where you can start a buffet line and bar seating for 4 where the early birds can gather for breakfast. 

Dining Area
Just off the huge kitchen is the open dining area harboring 3 large tables with seating for 30+ guests. The living room sofas, island bar stools, and covered deck with tables and chairs will give everyone a place to sit, chat, and dine throughout your stay. Ready to host board game night? Clear the tables, grab a few games from the cabin’s stash, and set up a fun tournament for everyone — winners compete for a grand prize of your choice!

Private Indoor Pool
An oasis in the Great Smoky Mountains sure sounds nice — make this dream your reality at Big Forest Lodge! Welcome to the private indoor pool with stone flooring, a pyramid island, color changing lights, large windows with tree-studded views, and refreshing lagoon-like water. Let the kiddos splash around while you sip a large glass of sweet lemonade or take a cool dip yourself. And since this pool is indoors and open year-round, weather or time won’t change your pool plans!

Rec Room
Multiple rec spaces offer entertainment for all ages at Big Forest Lodge. Whip up a mixed drink at the wet bar, play poker for fun, shoot pool with your teens, sit at the pub table with a few friends and a cold one, and beat the highest arcade scores! And if playing isn’t your thing, be a chill cheerleader on the sofas with entertainment on the big screen TV.

Theater Room
Movie night isn’t just an activity…at Big Forest Lodge — it’s an event! Fix buttery bowls of popcorn and plates of freshly baked cookies in the kitchen, then head to the theater room. Choose the best theater-style (cushioned) seat in the house, sit back, sip on your favorite soda, and get ready for the full movie experience with the projector screen and booming surround sound! You can even lay out a pillow pallet for the little ones; they’ll love it.

Ready to hit the hay? Big Forest Lodge sleeps up to 67 guests (pretty amazing, right?) with a mix of 13 king-size beds, 4 queen-over-queen bunks, 1 triple twin bunk, 5 queen futons, and sleeper sofas for a full house! There’s a mounted TV in each of the king bedrooms to keep guests entertained before heading to dreamland…or when struggling to leave their cozy bed in the mornings. Plus, some of the rooms offer mountain views or even direct deck access for a little private mountain time. And to make things even more convenient, there are 16 full bathrooms (1 has handicap features) plus 2 half baths in the home.

Outdoor Spaces
Featuring mountain and tree-studded views, the multiple outdoor spaces will be a hit with your large group. Sway in the rocking chairs with your morning mug of joe, soak tired muscles in the bubbly hot tub every evening, rest on the lounge chairs with a fun novel, and dine with friends at the tables. There’s even a charcoal grill, perfect for fun cookouts or nice steak dinners! And when everyone’s ready to paint the town red, head to the flat driveway, pile in the cars, and zip to in-town excitement.

Other Amenities
In addition to playing indoors and outdoors at the cabin, there are a few other amenities that will make your trip extra convenient, like the washer and dryer, high-speed Wi-Fi, and handicap features (a ramp and bathroom). Best of all, Big Forest Lodge is pet friendly, so your furry friends can come along, too!

Local Fun

Keep your large group entertained and fed in town, less than a 7-mile drive from Big Forest Lodge. There are tons of restaurants, museums, shops, shows, rides, and more — something for everyone!

Form a brigade and march your group into Dollywood for a full day of fun, riding roller coasters, listening to live bluegrass, snacking on Southern treats, and making memories!

Reviews for Big Forest Lodge

  • "The house was wonderful so big and spacious. We had 29 adults and 8 kids plenty room and more to spare. Everything was up to par. We had one issue with the light but was quickly resolved. The house is in a community so there is other cabins around and yes it’s a steep hill but not so so bad. This is our second year renting from CFY and I love it. We did have to wait until 6pm to check in but I understood we had people to stay before us and it’s a big house they had clean. Cabin is about 10 minutes away from parkway(Main Street) so that was great. Overall Cabin is perfect"

  • "Big Forest Lodge met ALL of our needs! Awesome house, spacious, nicely decorated, plenty towels, game room, movie theater washers and dryers on 2 levels! Hot tub, wrap around porch! Newly built.! Had issues with the pool pump, and wifi but was promptly taken care of. We could have used some large pots, but we managed! Walmart wasn't far away! Family Reunion with 58 people went off without a hitch! We made some awesome "Pigeon Forge 2019 Memories" Thank you Cabins for You staff!"

  • "The Big Forest Lodge at Cabins for you is a gorgeous cabin and has all the amenities. Would definitely recommend the cabin. Our family of 50+ had plenty of room."

  • "This experience was wonderful. The scheduling process was very easy as well as the check out process. This was our 3rd annual Business trip with a very large group. Our previous experiences at other locations have been ok , but there seem to always be some type of problem or inconveience. There were no issues ! The ammenities provided at the cabin was plenty for all of us to be entertained. The Space was very comfortable and very spacious and even the children had plenty of room to play. We will be recommending Cabins for You to our other offie locations to accomidate their Team Building Outings."

  • "We were pleasantly surprised that the cabin was a new construct. Very comfortable and spacious for our 19 guest. The internet connectivity was spotty as we had several family members needing to work remotely. The cookware was inadequate to prepare meals for a large group of people. The temperature of the hot tub and indoor pool was difficult to control so these amenities were enjoyed as we thought we would. But overall a nice space and beautiful Smokey Mountain getaway."

  • "The pictures of this place really doesn’t do it justice!! It was better than expected. The rooms were spacious and accommodating for all types guests."

  • "My stay in Big Forest Lodge on Feb 12-15 was simply amazing. The cabin was immaculate, the service was prompt and very polite with any small concerns we may have had. Karen, Jenn, the helpful office staff, more than accomplished customer service care. My guest were amazed at the space being able to accommodate 27 people comfortably (cabin can sleep >60). Bathrooms for each room was a PLUS! I will definitely book this again in the future!!!"

  • ""This cabin is everything in the description and more! We hosted 38 adults 4 kids total 42! Totally enough room and rooms for everyone! Tbe cabin was clean and smelled fresh! … lots of cooking and eat ware! Lots of sitting spaces There were 2 issues ( we couldn’t get the Wi-Fi connection even after 3 technicians attempting to fix for 3 hours) Tbe pool filtering system did not seem to work) or the beautiful fountain ( we reported it but it was not fixed during our stay) there were also some wear and tear items (pool table, poker table and no aur circulation in the pool area) I give this cabin a 5 because is an over all great cabin.. very beautiful and roomy fir a large group""
