The Building of Plimpton Lodge

If you have seen it, then you know! Plimpton Lodge is a breathtaking large group cabin rental nestled in the mountains of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This 14 bedroom log cabin has been the destination for many a church retreat, family reunion and wedding celebration. Plimpton Lodge sits on the mountainside, framing an unsurpassable Smoky Mountain view from nearly every room with its large windows.

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 Plimpton Lodge, including laying carpets, installing appliances and furnishing the rooms. It would be a huge undertaking to complete any cabin on one weeks’ 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.

Simply cleaning the bathrooms alone was quite a challenge – with 12 ½ 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 a group devoted to unboxing furnishings and appliances; from silverware to dishwashers, everything in the kitchen had to be unboxed and put in its rightful place!

After a marathon event, the work on Plimpton Lodge was completed and the group enjoyed a great family reunion. The large group cabin rental is located only a short drive from Dollywood, Dolly Parton's Stampede, and Dollywood’s Splash Country, giving groups easy access to the best of the entertainment options that Pigeon Forge has to offer. Vacationers here also have 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!
