Living Room
Kick back and relax in the spacious living room at your large cabin in Pigeon Forge, TN — featuring a comfy couch, 3 cozy armchairs, a big screen TV, and a stone-bordered, electric (no heat) fireplace. With plenty of natural light pouring in through the large windows, this space feels bright and inviting during the day.

Flip on the TV with snacks piled high on the coffee table or settle in for a romantic novel by the fireplace in the corner reading nook — paired best with a glass of wine from the Rocky Top Wine Trail. Great for spending quality time with family and friends, the living room at this Pigeon Forge cabin is perfect for playing a game of cards, piecing a puzzle together, or curling up on the sofa for a juicy chat.

Boasting an open concept, the fully equipped kitchen at your Smoky Mountain cabin rental is mere feet away from the living space, which allows you to keep conversations going while preparing homemade meals or refilling cold drinks. With ample counter space and bar seating for 4, helping hands won’t be far away when dinner rolls around.

Add the stainless-steel appliances — refrigerator, microwave, stove, dishwasher, and drip coffeemaker — pots and pans, silverware, mugs, and more, and you have a space ready for gourmet dishes and late-night snacks. No matter the time of day, this kitchen is ready to serve you and your guests on your mountain getaway!

Dining Area
Right by the kitchen is the large dining table with natural wood features and long benches for ample seating at your log cabin in Pigeon Forge. Throw in the kitchen bar and living space, and everyone will have a comfortable place to sit at mealtimes. You can also enjoy coffee, snacks, and meals with beautiful views of the Great Smoky Mountains on the nearby deck.

When food time is over, pull out your laptop to check out local events on our Cabins for YOU blog or clear the space for arts and crafts with the kids. With an antler chandelier overhead and tree-studded views through the windows, the dining table is a great communal space anytime you wish to gather.

Rec Room
Ready to take on the whole gang in an epic game battle? This Pigeon Forge group cabin gets it, which is why a fully loaded game room awaits downstairs! Challenge your siblings to an air hockey match, beat Grandpa (if you can) at pool, and take on the arcade’s high scores.

Got gamers in your group? Let them settle things on the Xbox 360 — champion chooses the DVD for movie night on the 65-inch flatscreen TV! And the loser fixes drinks and pops popcorn at the wet bar, outfitted with a sink, mini fridge, and microwave. There’s even a plump sofa and another electric (no heat) fireplace to complete the space.

After a day filled with fun and an evening of games, hop in the shower, slip into your softest jammies, and head to one of 5 cozy bedrooms — each with its own TV — for a restful snooze. Let the adults unwind in the 3 queen-size beds, send the kids to the twin-over-full bunk, and save the primary suite’s king-size bed for yourself.

Soothe tired muscles in the private jetted tub, travel across realms with a fantasy novel in the armchair, and cuddle with your spouse before drifting to sleep in the primary suite with a private en-suite bathroom. You’ll also find 2 sleepers (1 queen and 1 twin) plus 3 shower/tub combos at this 5-bedroom cabin in Pigeon Forge.

Outdoor Spaces
After playing at Parkway attractions in downtown Pigeon Forge, you and your guests can return to your Smoky Mountain vacation home away from home, put on your swimsuits, and hop in the large hot tub on the covered deck. While relaxing in the hot tub, you can even catch up on your favorite TV shows or the latest news with the mounted 32-inch flatscreen TV!

There’s plenty of seating for everyone in your party to enjoy the great outdoors and fresh mountain air, including rocking chairs, a porch swing, and small tables with chairs. And what better to go with a stunning mountain view than a barbecue feast straight from the charcoal grill?

Plus, this semi-private Pigeon Forge cabin rental boasts ample paved parking for 5-6 vehicles — even a small bus could park nicely! The driveway is also flat and paved to make the ride more comfortable, meaning heading to and from town won’t be a hassle. And with only 2 steps to enter the home, unloading and packing the cars will be a Smoky Mountain breeze...see what we did there? Oh, and bikers are more than welcome, as Papa Bear Lodge is also motorcycle friendly!

Other Amenities
Along with fun extras and serene mountain views, this large Smoky Mountain cabin offers homey amenities, such as a washer and dryer to clean clothes after hiking, biking, and horseback riding in the Smokies and high-speed wireless internet to stream all your must-see shows. And keyless entry means you can check in and out at the property — no office stops!

While these amenities are quite attractive, maybe your main concern is bringing your pet along for the vacation. And that’s the best part — Papa Bear Lodge is a pet-friendly cabin in Pigeon Forge! Bring your precious puppy or puppies (with a 2-pet limit of 25 pounds each) to experience the magic of the Smoky Mountains with fresh smells, intriguing sounds, and never-before-seen sights.

Community Amenities
Sitting at the top of Covered Bridge Resort, you’ll feel like you’re among the clouds at your group lodge in the Smokies. Best of all, summer months at this hideaway grant you community access to the outdoor pool with a picnic pavilion and loungers. Splash with the kids, sip lemonade poolside, sunbathe, and enjoy outdoor meals together.

Local Fun
Located just over 4 miles from the heart of Pigeon Forge, a stay at Papa Bear Lodge means you and your guests are never far away from exciting attractions, great restaurants, retail fun, and local entertainment. Spend days shopping with the girls, riding roller coasters at Dollywood, hiking trails in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, or watching one of the many dinner shows downtown. No matter what the day brings, downtown fun is just a short drive away!

Don’t forget to visit neighboring Gatlinburg, Sevierville, and Wears Valley for even more fun things to do on your family vacation or group getaway with friends. Museums, theme parks, events, mini-golf, arcades, art galleries, kayaking, whitewater rafting, and breathtaking views on chairlifts await on your Pigeon Forge vacation!

      We're pleased you had a great and memorable stay at Papa Bear Lodge! We look forward to hosting you again in the future!

  • "We stayed at the papa bear for 6 day's and 6 nights had a great stay. Every call we made was handled right away, everything we needed was provided, our 85 year old mother with dementia had what we feel was a great birthday week at papa bear lodge; memories were made. The view is fantastic from the balcony, my family will definitely be back, pray mom is with us. Thank you, Cabins For You!"

  • "Beautiful cabin in a safe, convenient spot. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it."

  • "Took kids and grandkids for a week vacation. Was so nice to have everyone under one roof. Everyone had their own space, yet we still were together. Sitting on the deck just chilling was so nice. Location was perfect for us. Place was homey and comfortable. Would definitely do this again!"

  • "The cabin was beautiful! Great location with easy check-in and checkout."

  • "Beautiful cabin in a great location. Very easy to find. We had plenty of space for our party of 12. The view was beautiful but there was one small tree that blocked getting any good pics. However, we highly recommend."

  • "A great place for a family reunion. We loved the pool table and hot tub!"

  • "11 members of family annual early Christmas trip. Great cabin! Everything we needed was there and very comfortable. Can’t wait to book again soon!"

  • "Cabins for you was great! Quick to respond if any issues arise. This was our 2nd year with Cabins for You. We love Papa Bear Lodge. It is perfect for our family of 10. We will be back"

  • "We had a great time staying in this cabin during spring break. We stayed in Papa Bear Cabin in Pidgeon Forge. The cabin was big enough for all of us to enjoy ourselves. There were 3 generations of us in our cabin and there was plenty of room for each family to spend time alone when needed. We will be back ."
