Like a majestic log castle resting on the mountainside, this large group lodge invites church retreats, holiday gatherings, weddings, and more to provide the perfect accommodations to enjoy the incredible beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains, impressive interiors, and ample amenities for up to 44 guests. Stunning décor, double the kitchen appliances, elegant design, and breathtaking mountain views through large windows submerge guests into a lavish mountain cabin experience full of laughs and cherished moments.

Under 9 miles from downtown Gatlinburg and under 7 miles from downtown Pigeon Forge, Pinnacle View Lodge is in the ideal location for days exploring The Island and nights at Ripley’s Haunted Adventure, mornings eating breakfasts at the Gatlinburg Log Cabin Pancake House and evenings at Dolly Parton’s Stampede dinner show. Older visitors and those with mobility challenges will feel right at home with easy ramp access, bedrooms and common rooms on the entry level, and wide door frames!

In between excursions during youth retreats or team building outdoor adventures, the game-packed rec room — with pool, foosball, pinball machine, shuffleboard, and air hockey — provides ample fun while the rocking chairs and breathtaking views lend a more laid-back way to spend downtime at Pinnacle View Lodge. Sink into the soothing waters of the bubbling outdoor hot tub to unwind and enjoy the starry skies resting over the dark outline of stoic mountains in the distance.

In addition to the fantastic line-up of amenities, Pinnacle View Lodge supplies guests with all the modern comforts of home with wireless internet access to upload cherished group photos, a washer/dryer to avoid packing dirty clothes after hiking, and TVs in every bedroom to watch your favorite shows while enjoying in-cabin days. Awe-inspiring, inside and out, Pinnacle View Lodge is your dream log castle in the Smoky Mountains; whisk those you love away to this incredible lodge for a getaway they will never forget.

Living Room
Exquisite modern interior design combines with gorgeous cabin architecture in this impressive living room space where guests can enjoy one another’s company without feeling cramped under the cathedral ceilings and open-concept floor plan. Stay connected to the beauty of the Smokies outside while cozied up on the large plush sofas and armchairs on dreamy afternoons in the mountains.

Sip glasses of local wine from your tastings along the Rocky Top Wine Trail by the alluring fire burning in the elegant stone fireplace. Host hilarious group games in the 2 large seating areas flanked with leather sofas with ample seating during an evening of wedding festivities before the ceremony in one of the Smoky Mountains’ breathtaking chapels. As guests disperse and relax in between excursions to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, sink into one of the armchairs by large windows to enjoy a good book by the fire or peruse the Cabins for YOU blog for dinner and activity ideas.

Modern meets the mountains in this chic, fully-loaded kitchen with gorgeous stone-gray color schemes to complement the natural wood of the cabin. Spacious granite countertops provide all the room you need to prepare large meals together before popping a couple of turkeys into the 2 ovens, stirring sauces and steamy veggies on the 8-eye stovetop, and grabbing condiments from the 2 stainless-steel refrigerators.

While the breakfast bar is the perfect place for additional guests to dine or enjoy toasted English muffins as more guests begin to mosey into the kitchen drawn by the smell of freshly brewed coffee, it is also a great spot to set up a self-serve buffet during large holiday meals. Once the 2 dishwashers are loaded after dinner, grab chilled dessert wines from the wine cooler and share laughs with friends and family late into the evenings while settled around the dinner tables.

Dining Room
Two impressive wood dining room tables boast 36 seats, ample space to move about the room while visiting with family, and 4 ceiling fans to keep the room nice and airy while everyone dines, laughs, and enjoys large meals together. The beautiful dark wood flooring and pale timber tables, Smoky Mountain views through the living room, and an intimate cabin atmosphere provide guests with an alluring dining space to fit any occasion. Additional guests can sit nearby at the high-top breakfast bar lending 10 more spots to enjoy a delicious homemade or catered meal.

Fourteen bedrooms boast beautiful log beds, cozy quilt furnishings, direct bathroom access to make showers and primping a breeze, and TVs to relax while watching your favorite shows during cabin downtime. Each bedroom on the entry level provides queen-size beds, perfect for grandparents and those with mobility issues visiting the Smoky Mountains. While each room varies in bed size and number, every guest is privileged to breathtaking mountain views from their windows, dressers or bedside tables, and air/heating units to adjust the temperature in each room.

Recreational Room
While the entry level houses the kitchen, living room, and dining area, the 2 upper levels boast 2 more common rooms for guests to hang out together, relax, and play. On the second floor, guests can lounge around on plush furnishings while watching movies on the large flatscreen TV or sharing drinks by the warm flames of the second fireplace before turning into bed for the night.

The third level’s rec room is full of fun ways for guests to stay entertained between excursions with a full-size pool table to play 8-ball and practice trick shots, an authentic arcade game and pinball machine, and air hockey! You can even teach younger guests how to play shuffleboard or challenge the kids to a few rounds of foosball. Sit back and watch the little ones have a blast while you sip on an ice-cold beer and lounge on the plush sofa or play a few games of checkers on the wood table.

Outdoor Amenities
Wake up early and revel in the mesmerizing views from Pinnacle View Lodge’s deck while sipping on freshly brewed coffee and lounging in the rocking chairs for the perfect start to any day. Sit hand-in-hand with your special someone in the 2-seat glider while unwinding at the end of another exciting day during your couples’ retreat in the Smoky Mountains as shades of pink and purple fade into starry skies.

Slip into the steamy waters of the large hot tub to enjoy a relaxing morning and let the kids get a turn with the bubbles while hamburgers and hot dogs cook on the 2 charcoal grills during a fun family reunion cabin cookout. The spacious, flat parking lot is perfect for numerous vehicles or buses to park and unload suitcases into the cabin along the ramp with ease. 

Local Fun
While staying in Pinnacle View Lodge and enjoying the incredible views and fantastic amenities, Cabins for YOU can help you plan some of your large group activities beyond the usual shopping and sightseeing! You'll be within a short drive to downtown Pigeon Forge that boasts tons of restaurants and attractions that cater to large groups. Plus, there are too many shops to count, leaving guests with plenty of opportunities to find the perfect souvenir or gift to take home.

The Island
One of the most popular places to bring large groups, The Island is a massive shopping and entertainment complex with everything you need spread out, have a blast, and make memories. Shop until you drop, dine at various restaurants, play games, and ride The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel.

The Comedy Barn Theater
You will be left breathless in both awe and in laughter at one of Pigeon Forge’s most iconic variety shows on the Parkway! Great for families, friends, and large groups, a visit to The Comedy Barn is full of juggling acts, fire-breathers, hilarious hillbillies, and exotic animals! 

Among the mountaintops of Gatlinburg, a magical village rests among the clouds where visitors can tour the treetops, fly through the forests on ziplines, shop in Firefly Village, zoom on a mountain coaster, and dine with the backdrop of the most breathtaking views of the Smoky Mountains.
