Slip away to My Runaway Wagon Retreat, a 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom motorcycle-friendly cabin with 2,500 square feet of space for 10 in the Shagbark Community of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Both relaxing and fun, this lovely log cabin features great spaces inside and out. Start with the community amenities in Shagbark, which include basketball, tennis courts, and an outdoor pool where you can cool off in summer.

At the cabin, sit back on the 2 spacious decks as you soak up the beautiful mountain views and enjoy fresh Smoky Mountain breezes. The deck also boasts a hot tub, where you can unwind before climbing into bed at night. And don’t forget about the gas grill, perfect for steaks and kabobs on nice nights!

Inside, climb into 3 king-size beds (plus 2 queen sleeper sofas for more space), cozy up in front of the gas fireplace, sit back in front of the big screen TV, bust out the board games for family game night, shoot some pool, and take advantage of the high-speed wireless internet while you hang out. Other conveniences make your stay easier, including a washer/dryer, flat driveway, and fully equipped kitchen, when you stay at My Runaway Wagon Retreat!

Within about 15-20 minutes, you'll find some top attractions like the Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster and The Island in Pigeon Forge. And if you go a bit farther, you'll find the heart of the Parkway, dotted with endless options for playing, eating, and shopping! 

Living Room
Lead friends and family towards beautiful mountain views peering through the large windows in the cozy living room, where you can unwind on the stylish sofa and chairs. A high ceiling really opens up the space, while the hardwood floors and stacked-stone gas fireplace elevate your cabin experience. On chilly evenings, sit with friends and chat by dancing flames with a glass of wine in hand. For entertainment, flip on the 40-inch screen TV and watch your favorite show or movie marathon with snacks and soda on the coffee and end tables.

Get ready to whip up scrumptious meals morning, noon, or night in the fully equipped kitchen, boasting tons of counter space with breakfast bar seating for 4, all major appliances, a stainless-steel double sink, and plenty of cookware, dinnerware, mugs, and more! Store fresh ingredients in the fridge, fry bacon and eggs on the stove, brew coffee in the coffeemaker and Keurig, fix popcorn in the microwave, and bake sweet treats in the oven. There’s even a handy dishwasher to take care of the messes.

Dining Room
Near the kitchen awaits the dining room with a table for 6 and bright windows all around. Aside from stuffing your face, chatting with friends, and planning daily activities, this space is also great for playing a few board games provided at the cabin. And don’t forget the breakfast bar in the kitchen, where other guests or the kiddos can dine.

Rec Room + Loft
Nothing but good times await at My Runaway Wagon Retreat! Shoot pool in the loft with entertainment on the mounted 40-inch TV and drinks at the pub table. Or head to the lower level, where you’ll find a media space with a large 55+ inch TV and seating, a wet bar with a microwave and mini fridge, a stacked-stone gas fireplace, bar seating for 4, an arcade unit, plus a pub table with a checkers game! There’s something fun for everyone at this Pigeon Forge cabin, whether you want to chill with a show, whip up a few cocktails, play games, or just chill.

At My Runaway Wagon Retreat, you’ll be pleased to find 3 king suites, each with a 40-inch flatscreen TV and access to a full bathroom. And the one on the entry level even has a bonus jetted tub plus direct deck access — wake up to gorgeous mountain views and a soothing spa bath! The loft and entry level also boast 2 queen sleeper sofas combined, so up to 10 guests can sleep comfortably at the cabin. There’s also a half bath on the entry level for convenience.

Outdoor Spaces
When you see the bright red wagon, you know your home in the Smokies at My Runaway Wagon Retreat! The flat, paved, motorcycle-friendly driveway makes arrivals easy with parking for 4 vehicles to boot. And with only 6 steps to enter this semi-private cabin, unpacking and loading the cars won’t be a hassle here. Get ready for beautiful mountain views, lush greenery in warmer months, and colorful leaves caressing the mountainside in fall. Enjoy these breathtaking views from the rocking chairs on deck with a kabob or two from the gas grill. Sip coffee at the breakfast table with morning hues across the rolling hills and tuneful melodies from lovely songbirds. Better yet, hop in the hot tub for a soul-soothing soak in the Great Smoky Mountains!

      Clay, we are happy that we got to host you at "My Runaway Wagon Retreat" and pleased to hear that your stay was great! The cabin is equipped with great amenities and we are glad your guests enjoyed them during your stay, especially the views of the Smoky Mountains! We look forward to hosting you again in the future.

  • "Very nicely, clean updated place. AWESOME AWESOME VIEW! Great Deck area. Bedroom very nice and comfy beds. Would definitely recommend for family and friend stay. We were so excited to see how nice it was."

  • "We loved are stay and my mom seen a mama bear and her 4 cubs we loved the mountain view too"

  • "This place was absolutely beautiful! Our kids really enjoyed having a game arcade and the hot tub. It was definitely worth it! It would be more of a place for a get away rather than a tourist attraction. Very home feeling. Love how they have the gated community as well. Only downfall we didn't get to see any bears however we did hear them while we were cooking out fajitas one night!"

  • "We have stayed at 2 Cabins For You cabins "Serenity's Clear View" and "My Runaway Wagon Retreat" and both stays have been absolutely fantastic! They were very professional and made us feel so welcome and comfortable! I would (and have) definitely recommend using Cabins for you to book your Smoky Mountain Vacations 😀"

  • "Love ❤️ This place...So peaceful and beautiful...I sleep like a bear in the most comfortable cabin beds...I enjoyed my evenings sitting by the fireplace and my daily walks...I’m definitely coming back again...Hopefully soon!"

  • "We loved our morning views! Our stay was wonderful. We had plenty of room to accommodate our party. The bedrooms were all very nice and comfy. Kids loved the game room and hot tub after our long hike of the Chimney Top trail. My tip for future guests would be to make sure to pack your own travel toiletries because toothpaste, body wash, shampoo, conditioner is not provided. Also, you’ll want to pick up laundry detergent from the Dollar General nearby if you plan to do laundry during your stay. Overall our experience was amazing and I definitely recommend."

  • "The cabin was nice close to everything will stay there in the future."

  • "Tbh, driving was hell scary for a person from plain terrain but it was not bad after first time. Cabin was huge and spacious. Very quiet and beautiful Mountain View. I loved seating outside in the morning and had memorable experience for my coffee time. Relaxing and lots of stuff. I ll definitely stay here in future."

  • "Very nice cabin. Layout is great bedroom on each floor with own bathroom. The porch provides a great view."
