The Building of Plimpton Lodge

This castle of a cabin beckons a story! Pinnacle View Lodge, formerly Plimpton Lodge, is a breathtaking large group cabin rental nestled in the mountains of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Sleeping up to 50 guests, this 14-bedroom, 12-bathroom log cabin has been the destination for many church retreats, family reunions, and wedding celebrations over the years. Pinnacle View Lodge sits on the mountainside, framing an unsurpassable Smoky Mountain view from nearly every room with its large windows. 

Racing to the Finish Line
The Plimpton family, owners of Cabins for YOU, were nearly finished constructing the cabin when a group reserved the lodge for an upcoming family reunion — only 1 week away! There was still much work to be completed at Pinnacle View Lodge, including laying carpets, installing appliances, and furnishing the rooms. 

It would be a huge undertaking to complete any cabin with a 1-week notice, but particularly a 14-bedroom, 9,000-square-foot lodge! The Plimpton family knew that there was much work to be done and gathered friends, family members, and hired hands to set about completing the task.

Ready, Set, GO!
Simply cleaning the bathrooms alone was quite a challenge — with 12 bathrooms, the sound of scrubbing could be heard throughout the home! Elsewhere, people were laying carpet and laminating kitchen and dining room floors for the 44 guests who would soon be arriving in the cabin rental. 

There was even a group devoted to unboxing furnishings and appliances; from silverware to dishwashers, everything in the kitchen had to be unboxed and put away. And don’t forget the mounted TVs and furniture to fill the rooms, from large beds and bunks to nightstands and lamps!

Welcome to Pinnacle View Lodge
After a marathon event, the work was completed and the first group to stay at Pinnacle View Lodge enjoyed a memorable family reunion. Located only a short drive from Dollywood, Dolly Parton's Stampede, and Dollywood’s Splash Country, this large cabin rental gave the family easy access to the best of the entertainment options that Pigeon Forge has to offer. 

Of course, their large group also had the option of taking it easy, with multiple living areas, game tables, and a hot tub with a view you won’t find anywhere else! Today, more amenities have been added, upgrades can be enjoyed throughout the property, and the Great Smoky Mountain views have only gotten better...if you can believe it.

Breathtaking Mountain Views
One thing that we hear from guests that stay at Pinnacle View Lodge is how beautiful the view is! Sitting solidly on a mountaintop, this Pigeon Forge large group cabin rental allows you to view the mountains from up above. Watch a thunderstorm pass through, glimpse a Smoky Mountain sunset, or watch the fog roll in from the comfort of the rocking chairs and gliders on the expansive deck.

Outside, you can fire up the charcoal, picnic-style grills for fun cookouts at the cabin. There’s even an updated firepit area with Adirondack chairs so members of your group can roast marshmallows and swap stories under the stars. Though, our favorite spot outdoors has to be the steamy hot tub with massaging jets and stunning Smoky Mountain scenery, ideal after playing downtown. 

Fun Amenities for All Ages
We know that you and your group will have some downtime in Pinnacle View Lodge, so the cabin is outfitted with a large game room and amenities that make it easy to pass the time. Spend an evening challenging your housemates to rounds on the pool, air hockey, shuffleboard and foosball tables or beating all the high scores on the arcade and pinball machines!

The adults can enjoy chatting by the fireplace in the living area downstairs while the kids watch their favorite animated film in the plush home theater with a big screen TV upstairs. High speed Wi-Fi access here makes it easy to stay connected while you’re enjoying your Pigeon Forge group vacation.

The Comforts of Home
A stay in Pinnacle View Lodge ensures that you and your group can settle in and feel right at home. Amenities such as a washer and dryer and ironing board are useful for long stays or business trips. Many guests take advantage of the full kitchen, which is outfitted with double stainless steel appliances — from refrigerators and ovens to microwaves and dishwashers! 

The large dining area with log tables and the breakfast bar with stools in the kitchen give you and your group plenty of space to enjoy a home-cooked meal in your Pigeon Forge cabin rental. Plus, you can bring along board and card games to play on game night, a great way to break the ice when you arrive. 

When it’s time to retreat for the night, everyone can spread out across the 14 bedrooms that each feature beautiful mountain views and direct bathroom access. There’s a convenient mix of 10 kings, 1 queen, 1 queen bunk, 2 full bunks, and 8 twin bunks for any group. And handicap features allow more friends and family to vacation together.
