Location: Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
A gorgeous new build with high-end finishes, Sky River Lodge impresses! Start with the new modern mountain design, complete with a mix of log and stone, and continue with an expansive mountain view, upscale amenities — including a private indoor pool and a home theater — and plenty of space for a large group. The 8-bedroom, 9½-bathroom cabin nestled in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, has space for up to 30 guests, perfect for big families, friends, or retreats.
Large windows and deck spaces abound, creating your own private lodge in the Great Smoky Mountains. Here you’ll spend days getting fresh air while strolling the decks, chatting late into the night around the gas firepit, and soaking up those expansive mountain views. The cabin also boasts its own entertainment, including Wi-Fi, a private home theater with a snack nook (complete with a wine fridge and microwave), a steamy hot tub, a rec loft, and a private indoor split pool complete with an island, a grotto, a bridge, color-changing lights, waterfalls, and a large raised spa!
At night, the 8 bedrooms and 9½ bathrooms give you plenty of space to settle in. One bedroom features a triple bunk bed and a futon, perfect for the kids on the trip, and the other bedrooms offer king suites with custom furnishings to relax. For added entertainment and convenience throughout your memorable stay, Sky River Lodge also boasts big screen TVs, a pool table, a modern fireplace, a huge double kitchen, outdoor dining and seating, a washer/dryer, and a flat driveway that makes arrivals and departures easier.
Step into the open concept space in the living room that features an alluring wall of large picture windows framing breathtaking views of the Great Smoky Mountains and letting tons of natural light flood the room. Next, you’ll notice the skyscraping wall of stacked stones that encompasses a modern fireplace plus stylish decor and a flatscreen TV on the mantelpiece. Overhead, take in the stunning lighting display that features a weaving of logs and dripping bulbs that goes perfectly with the multi-toned wood paneling along the walls and gorgeous hardwood floors.
Spread out and relax on the sofas and armchairs with snacks and drinks on the surrounding side tables and the coffee table. Prop up your feet and flip on the TV for a little entertainment in the morning. Sip wine with your gal pals every evening in front of the mood setting fireplace. Or simply sneak away to this grand space when everyone’s asleep for a cozy read by an enchanting fire.
With double the slate appliances — including dishwashers, microwaves, stove/ovens, coffeemakers, and refrigerators — 3 sinks, and an island in the middle for even more counter space, the fully equipped kitchen at Sky River Lodge was made to serve large groups. Keep endless snacks, drinks, ingredients, and leftovers at your fingertips, so ordering takeout and catering aren’t your only options. Though, the counter space here certainly allows for setting out a magnificent spread. Not to mention, there are large picture windows so the chefs in your group can take in the scenery while preparing meals at the cabin.
Open and spacious, the dining area is conveniently between the kitchen and living areas. There are 2 tables that seat 20 guests total with views of the Smoky Mountains just through the windows. Combined with the living room seating and bar stools at the kitchen island, everyone will have a place to dine. The dining area is also great for board and card game night! And it’s versatile for getting a little work done, setting up activities for the kids, and working on your next journal entry.
A welcome escape on your Pigeon Forge vacation, the home theater — aka Mining Camp Theater — is something special. It’s unique and modern mountain design captures your whimsical side with hanging bulbs, wall lanterns, and tin wall paneling. Seating is plush, theater style, and tiered. Of course, the TV is big screen with surround sound. There’s even a snack nook inside the theater room that features a wine fridge and a microwave to keep movie night refreshments close. Movie enthusiasts will love gathering for a romantic comedy, a riveting drama, an action adventure, or a terrifying horror flick here!
Private Indoor Pool
Perhaps best of all, Sky River Lodge boasts a large split pool that’s private and indoors! Stone flooring leads to a wall of windows showcasing more scenes of the Great Smoky Mountains to enjoy while you splash and swim in the pool. Features include a log bridge that reaches a grassy island where you can relax between swims, a swim-in grotto with a waterfall, color-changing lights that look super cool at night, underwater seating, and a large raised spa that pours another waterfall into the pool. It’s a pretty awesome amenity with a unique design that sets the bar for future vacations! There are also chairs around the pool room and even a big screen TV to enjoy.
Upstairs, the recreation loft is roomy and features more picture windows overlooking the captivating peaks of the Smokies. It’s another great spot to retreat or play during your stay. Shoot pool with friends, deal cards and sip drinks at the pub table, flip on the big screen TV in the media space for a bit of entertainment while you unwind on the sofas, or chat with your partner in the additional sitting area with yet another big screen TV! It’s also a nice place to get away for a little quiet when others are downstairs splashing in the pool, cooking in the kitchen, hanging out on the deck, or watching movies in the theater.
When a cat nap or bedtime calls, slip away to your private suite at Sky River Lodge. There are 8 bedrooms total, one being a bunk room the kids will love! It features a triple bunk, a futon, and a TV. In all, you'll find 7 King beds, 1 triple full-over-full bunk bed (sleeps 6), 1 futon (bunk room), and 3 queen sleeper sofas. Bedrooms have their own TVs, and many boast mountain views and en-suite bathrooms.
This Pigeon Forge cabin with an indoor pool and a home theater has even more to offer outside. Take a stroll on the 2 expansive decks that each feature stunning views of the Great Smoky Mountains. Fall hues, winter peaks, spring wildflowers, and summer greenery make the great outdoors at Sky River Lodge beautiful year-round. The driveway is also flat to make arrivals and departures smoother.
Along the decks, you’ll find seating all around, including chairs, benches, and an outdoor dining table nature lovers will appreciate at mealtimes or with morning coffee. The main deck even has a stone (gas) firepit where you can roast marshmallows, swap stories, and sip cocoa. And the lower level deck boasts a hot tub that steams and massages away your worries and cares. Plus, it’s super relaxing after a busy day shopping in town or exploring the national park.
In addition to the many fun amenities at Sky River Lodge, you’ll have access to free Wi-Fi so you can stay connected and a washer and dryer to stay on top of laundry, reuse provided pool towels, and pack lighter this trip. This luxury property is also sister to NorthStar Mountain Lodge and Sierra Springs.
Just over 8 miles to town, Sky River Lodge is within a reasonable driving distance to downtown attractions, eateries, candy stores, and souvenir shops in Pigeon Forge, TN. Stroll The Old Mill District for homemade nom noms, dine at every pancake house in sight, play The Escape Gametogether, find country chic boutiques to explore, ride roller coasters at Dollywood, putt-putt on a rooftop, win go-kart races, visit intriguing museums, buy homemade fudge and taffy by the pound, jump at an indoor trampoline park, and go on outdoor adventures.
Plus, Gatlinburg neighbors Pigeon Forge and is a short trip down the road. There you’ll find even more attractions, like Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, Anakeesta(an aerial adventure park), the longest pedestrian suspension bridge on the continent, haunted houses, and year-round ice skating. Of course, shopping continues at The Village, a European inspired complex, and within the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, housing the largest group of independent artisans in the nation. And the Great Smoky Mountains National Park features 800+ miles of hiking trails among gorgeous scenery!
A shopping and entertainment complex bursting with fun things to do, like playing escape games and riding to the tippy top of The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel, The Island is a great place to spend a day with everyone. You can spread out to eat, play, and shop, then meet back at the dancing show fountain!

Have you ever heard of zorbing? If not, now you have! This fun and interesting outdoor activity involves climbing into a clear ball, locking the hatch, and rolling along a cooky course — hamster style. And in summer, prepare to roll with a splash of water.

"This is a beautiful cabin, easy to get to with amazing views. The hot tub was broke on arrival Sunday evening but was fixed by Tuesday morning. The indoor pool was a great size and used often along with hot tub. The deck fire pit was so convenient and simply gorgeous at night. The kitchen didn't disappoint with having 2 of everything which we needed for our group. My only complaint was the door chime to the deck door on the main floor. We used this door probably 200 times a day. No other deck doors or even front door had a door chime. They were all deactivated nor did the pool door chime when opened. This made it hard to sleep in, nap or go to bed early. We had a visitor at our cabin as many do thankfully all our car doors were locked. Would recommend this cabin and stay again in the future."

"Sky River Lodge was perfect for our dual bachelor weekend. EVERYTHING we could need was in this cabin, we loved the rooms, the deck, the pool, the theatre room and the spaciousness for everything! Highly recommend. If you're taking 20 people, just know there is one hottub and you can maybe fit 6 people in it. The heated jacuzzi connected to the pool isn't very warm, but is still quite nice to be in."
"I wanted all of my family to get together over the holidays. We had more than enough space to get together or stay apart:-). I was very satisfied with everything about this rental. We did have a mmix of adults and little children so the only thing I would say is this home is better for adults' with minimal youth guests. Only because most of the rooms are King beds. I don't like to have people sleeping in common areas on the pullouts. You would need people willing to share a bed.
I would recommend this cabin for sure!"
