Big Forest Retreat is a large group lodge for 73, with 13 king-size beds, 5 queen-over-queen bunks, 3 twin sleeper sofas, 3 queen sleeper sofas, and 9 futons for plenty of sleeping space.

When you’re relaxing at this 9,100+ square foot cabin, you’ll enjoy mountain and wooded views, a big screen TV, rocking chairs, and high-speed wireless internet. To unwind, you can head to the outdoor hot tub for a soak. Kids and adults will stay entertained here, too, with a pool table, board games, and a private indoor pool! The electric fireplace will make the room feel cozy, and the cabin is even pet friendly!

There are plenty of conveniences to make the stay easier for a group, including a washer/dryer, a charcoal grill for cookouts, and a fully equipped kitchen. This large-group lodge also has handicap features, making the cabin much more accessible.

Living Room
As you step through the enchanting wooden door at Big Forest Retreat, you’ll enter a world of relaxation and comfort. Passing the entryway sitting area, which features 2 armchairs plus a bark and stone wall exuding the natural landscape of the Smokies, you’ll come to the living area where a well-deserved rest is yours to take. Unwind on the 3 sofas with friends, family, teammates, or coworkers while enjoying a little entertainment on the big screen TV. On warmer days, flip on the ceiling fan to keep cool with an ice-cold glass of lemonade in hand.

As you look around, you’ll notice the complimenting red and black theme throughout the décor in the open-concept space that ties everything together beautifully, not to mention the captivating views through the large windows. Multiple tables and lamps keep the area convenient and cozy, plus there’s an electric fireplace, perfect for setting the mountain mood and providing a heartwarming atmosphere to enjoy a good book or a nice chat.

Massive, stunning, fully equipped, luxurious…it’s hard to describe the double kitchen at Big Forest Retreat in one just word. When you need to whip up a large group breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack, you’ll really appreciate the convenience of not only spacious countertops, tons of storage space, and a larger than life island with bar seating for 6 but also double the standard appliances, pots and pans, mugs, dinnerware, cutlery, and more! Not to mention, you’ll have a full view of the Smokies through the large windows across the way in the dining area, so the chefs in your group will be more than happy to get cookin’!

Dining Area
Just off the kitchen awaits the expansive dining area with 6 country chic tables with modern chandeliers overhead and the tree-studded Smokies only a glance away. With seating for 36 added to the bar seating for 6 nearby, sitting area, living room, and outdoor picnic tables on the covered deck, everyone will have a place to dine and chat together at mealtimes. And when the food disappears, clear the tables and bust out the cabin board games for a fun tournament of champions!

Private Indoor Pool
Did someone say a private indoor pool?! Head downstairs to join in on all the splashin’ fun at Big Forest Retreat. Teach your littles to swim, hear the kids laugh in a game of Marco Polo, enjoy a morning dip in peace, and make midnight adult time in the pool room — featuring stone flooring, a waterfall feature, and lovely Smoky Mountain views through the floor-to-ceiling windows!

Theatre Room
Host movie night every night in the home theater, boasting a large projector and screen plus theater-style seating. Pass around bowls of buttery popcorn, sodas, and candy during the trailers and get ready to sit back and relax with your favorite Disney classics, Alfred Hitchcock thrillers, Sandra Bullock romantic comedies, M. Night Shyamalan head spinners, and magical Harry Potter marathons!

Rec Room
Ready to play? Gather ‘round the poker table for a friendly wager, shoot pool with your best pals, pass out snacks from the bar, and chill at the pub table with a few cold ones and your favorite coworkers in the rec spaces at Big Forest Retreat. You’ll also find a big screen TV in each space plus a seating area with plush sofas — it’s the perfect space to get away with a small group for a little unwind time.

Stylish and comfortable, the bedrooms at Big Forest Retreat leave nothing wanting. A few bedrooms even have direct deck access, bringing the mountain views closer to you. You’ll find a mix of 13 king-size beds, 5 queen bunks, 9 futons, 3 twin sleepers, and 3 queen sleepers throughout the home, bringing the total number of possible guests to 73. There are also 2 half bathrooms in the home. Curl up in bed with the latest in your favorite novel series, enjoy bathing in elegant stone showers, and sip morning coffee on the deck with songbird melodies.

Outdoor Spaces
Outdoors is where you’ll want to be at Big Forest Retreat. Gaze upon the rolling Smokies, cloud watch and stargaze on the sun decks, and rock away your worries and cares in the rocking chairs. Cook out on the charcoal grill and dine at the picnic tables on the main covered deck. Best of all, slip into the steamy hot tub and soothe tired muscles year-round. Plus, this large group cabin has a flat, paved driveway and a handicap-friendly ramp to the front door that makes loading and unloading the cars much easier, so everyone can head to Anakeesta, Dolly Parton’s Stampede, or The Island without a hassle.

    Verified guest on 08/26/2022

  • "Bartow Krawlers Rented Big Forest Retreat this past weekend for Jeep Invasion! We had a total of 35 adults in this beautiful Cabin. It was decorated to the 9’s with beautiful View from the large back decks. The Pool, hot tub and game room was an awesome bonus. Cabins for you was awesome to work with and made it so easy with such a large group! We will definitely be renting from them next year! Highly recommend the beautiful Big Forest Retreat if you have a large group!"

  • "Stayed at big forest retreat.! Party of like 24+ . Cabin was clean & very spacious . We all loved it .! View was also amazing .!"

  • "We had over 30 guests and there was plenty of room for everyone! We didn’t feel crowded at all !"

  • "The cabin was spotless. My family really enjoyed it. We had plenty of space for the 45 family members. The children really enjoyed the pool. This was most definitely a 5 Star cabin. Cabins For You (Big Forest Retreat)-- you rock. We will be back."

  • "My family and I (a group of about 30 cousins) all stayed at this one house. It was spacious, very clean when we got there, and perfectly as described! And about 15 minutes from the touristy strip in Tennessee with plenty to do! An overall very pleasant trip!"

  • "The Clean that it Is And The Jouse Was Decorated For Christmas is Really Nice."

  • "I enjoyed myself spending time with my family and friends and we say can't wait to see y'all next year because everyone was just loving and they welcome us and anything we needed they were right there and we say thank you for everything and God bless y'all and we will keep y'all in our prayers and thoughts ❤️❤️"

  • "This cabin was very accommodating! It is PERFECT for a large group. The management were in touch as needed. It was very clean and comfortable. There are many large and spacious areas for group gathering, and then the bedrooms were not cramped, most having an additional sofa bed or futon. Each bedroom had its own bathroom. Shopping, dining, activities were close and easy to find."

  • "This cabin was AMAZING! There was plenty of room for a large group. The beds were comfortable. It was well stocked with sheets, towels , dish washer tablets, garbage bags, toilet paper, etc. We will be back!"

  • "The cabin was very spacious and accommodated our large group well. Each bedroom had a full bathroom and the beds were comfortable. It was convenient having two dishwashers and two refrigerators but one of the dishwashers stopped working halfway through our stay. The upstairs AC stopped working too which made it way too hot to sleep upstairs comfortably."

  • "Great place for a corporate retreat. Room for everyone on our management team to have privacy and then come together for goal setting and team-building. Wonderful, comfortable facility."
