Location: Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
Listen to the melodious sounds of nature and 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.
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 confectionary shops with cupcakes, ice cream, cookies, funnel cakes, chocolates, brittle, and more!
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

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.

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. And head only 1 step onto the paved, semi-circle driveway (room for a trailer), hop into the cars, and head along easy (sometimes curvy) roads to downtown fun whenever you please!
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!
