Gaze at the sparkling water rush past River Retreat, your 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom riverfront cabin in Pigeon Forge, TN. Filled with homey conveniences and bonus amenities, your group of up to 10 guests will feel comfortable and remain entertained in the Great Smoky Mountains. Hop on the free Wi-Fi and post trip photos with ease, whip up meals in the fully equipped kitchen, shoot pool and play foosball, soak in the steamy hot tub, and sip cocoa by the fireplace.

Not to mention, River Retreat offers a choice location to get away from it all yet stay not too far from in-town fun with less than 8 miles to the city. Shop until you drop at country-chic boutiques, hang out at The Island, zipline with your friends, visit local museums and art studios, dine on Southern favs, and much more! Then return along easy roads to River Retreat for picturesque views of the Little Pigeon River, movies on a big screen TV, charcoal grilled treats, and sweet dreams in a mix of king and queen beds, a bunk, and a sleeper sofa.

*Driveway is steep and can have limited visibility. 

Living Room
After traveling to the Smokies, lounge in the living room and unwind, peaking through the windows towards the relaxing river. Prop your feet up on the sofa, chat with your bestie on the love seat, or open the latest book of your favorite series in the armchair. The little ones can crawl about the area rug while you watch a comedy, romance, or action DVD on the big screen TV. And on chilly evenings, watch the flames dance in the stacked stone (gas) fireplace with local wine in hand and your loved ones by your side. 

At River Retreat, there’s no need to eat out every night as the kitchen is fully equipped and well-stocked with all the appliances and tools you’ll need to prepare meals and snacks in the Smoky Mountains, saving you money and helping you create lasting memories at the cabin! With a mix of black and stainless steel appliances, a double sink, plus hardwood floors and light cabinetry, this space is stylish and functional. Fix hot breakfasts on the stove, brew endless pots of joe, bake fresh goodies in the oven, pop buttery delights in the microwave for movie nights, store sweet treats in the fridge, and let the dishwasher take care of the messes!

And if you prefer to go out, this cabin is located less than 8 miles from the downtown Pigeon Forge restaurants. A large variety of cuisines is available, from Chinese and American to Mexican and German. Those with a sweet tooth will love the confectionery shops with cupcakes, ice cream, cookies, funnel cakes, chocolates, brittle, and more!

Dining Area
Just off the kitchen lies the dining area with a large table for 6. And with the living area just around the corner, there is plenty of seating for your group at mealtimes. Not just for meals, the dining area is also great for board or card games brought from home, midnight munchies and chats with your kids, coloring time with the little ones, and a little peace and quiet with coffee for the early birds in your group.

Rec Room + Loft
Hours of fun and entertainment await at River Retreat, which features multiple spaces to chill and play rain or shine! Head to the loft for a foosball battle of champions; there’s also a comfy couch here, perfect for talking with your pals while waiting for your next turn or napping during the day. Venture to the rec room downstairs, where you can play enticing rounds of pool, down a cold one in the armchair, and unwind in the recliner. There’s also another hangout area with a sofa (doubles as a queen sleeper), armchair, electric fireplace, and mounted flatscreen TV!

Offering plenty of comfortable sleeping space, River Retreat features 1 king-size bed, 2 queen-size beds, 1 twin bunk, plus a queen sleeper in the rec room downstairs. As a bonus, each of the 4 bedrooms harbors a TV for entertainment anytime! And 3 bedrooms offer nightstands with reading lamps, great for a relaxing and quiet evening in bed. Not to mention, 2 bedrooms give you peaceful views of the river only a glance away. No matter where you choose to close your eyes, you’re sure to have restful nights at River Retreat. There are also 3.5 bathrooms in the home, so getting ready for bed will be convenient for your group.

Outdoor Spaces
At River Retreat, you’ll find a relaxing hot tub outside on the lower deck overlooking the Little Pigeon River, perfect for soaking in the gorgeous water views while soothing tired muscles. And during those hot summer days in the Smoky Mountains, you and your group can enjoy splashing in the refreshing river, which runs right past the cabin. Enjoy a sway in the rocking chairs on either deck with a cup of joe and lovely views every morning. Cook out with steaks, veggie kabobs, or hot dogs on the charcoal grill.

*Driveway is steep and can have limited visibility; motorcycles are not recommended. 

Other Amenities
But wait…there’s more offered when you stay at River Retreat! Use the washer and dryer so you can pack light this trip. Bring classic home videos to watch together on the VCR. Tap into the complimentary wireless internet to check emails, use our partner discounts on local attractions, or post vacation vids to social media. Every amenity at River Retreat is pretty great, but there’s one aspect about this cabin that pushes it to awesome — it’s pet friendly! Yep, Fido can come along for your Smoky Mountain adventure, too!

      We're so glad you liked the location of the property!

  • "My family and I took our dad to Tennessee September 8th for his 82nd Birthday. We booked a cabin with Cabins For You (River Retreat).Our first time with this company. When we arrived we were very pleased with the cabin. It was clean, neat, and beautifully decorated. It had kitchen supplies, towels, sheets, and it was very well supplied. The ladies enjoyed the hot tub, while the guys enjoyed the pool table and we all enjoyed the river. We loved the location of the cabin it was quiet, peaceful, and relaxing but yet not to far from town. I got the key code by email which was very convenient. We enjoyed our stay with Cabins For You and look forward to our next visit. I would recommend this company to anyone for a nice relaxing vacation."

  • "This cabin felt like home. Everything is close to the cabin not far from the city and things to do. I recommend to come back again"

  • "Although we have yet to stay in our reserved cabin (vacation almost 8 mos away), the customer service has been excellent. I booked our cabin in the afternoon and received a call that evening from Liam, walking me through their processes. Very nice and eager to answer any questions I may have had. Will review again after our stay but to me, the customer service is excellent!"

  • "I really enjoyed my 3 night 4 day stay at the River Retreat cabin in Pigeon Forge, TN It was 4 bedroom 3.5 bath and it was very spacious. It was only 2 couples so we had plenty of room! The cabin was located close to the main strip which made it so much easier for us to get to without having to drive a long way out if we needed anything. The interior of the cabin was so nice and clean and comfortable and cozy. We had everything that we needed, and I mean everything. Being close to the river was really peaceful and relaxing. And waking up early morning sitting out on the deck listening to mother nature was awesome! Cabins for you Customer Service was awesome! They never let me down or left me hanging on anything. They always had the answers I needed when I asked a question. I did have a problem with my TV service when I arrived on Thursday afternoon but I called customer service at Cabins for You and they immediately started working on getting the problem solved. I was without TV service until Friday afternoon but we still made the best of it without the TV. All in all I really enjoyed my stay and I will definitely be returning real soon! Big Thumbs Up Cabins For You!"

  • "Clean and cozy cabin."
