The 8-bedroom, 9½-bathroom cabin nestled in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, has space for up to 24 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. Bedding includes kings, queens, and bunks! 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. It even boasts keyless entry, so you won’t have to stop by an office for check-in. 

Living Room
Step into the open concept space in the living room that features a gorgeous 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 surrounds 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. 

On your perfect Smoky Mountain vacation, 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.

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 with amazing views. 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.

The Island
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.

Reviews for Sky River Lodge

  • "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."

      Eileen, we are pleased to hear that you and your guests had a overall positive stay at Sky River Lodge! From the spacious layout to all of the great amenities like the hot tub and private pool, it was great to hear that everyone got to enjoy their time in the cabin and have a much-needed relaxing vacation. We look forward to hosting you 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."

      Jason, we loved reading your experience at Sky River Lodge for your dual bachelor weekend! We are happy to hear that Sky River Lodge was the perfect cabin for you and your guests with plenty of space inside and out of the cabin to enjoy the breathtaking views of Smoky Mountains. We hope we have the opportunity to host you again in the future!

  • "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!"

      Thank you so much for your review of Sky River Lodge! We're so pleased your stay was enjoyable, and you were able to experience all the incredible features and amenities the cabin has to offer. We look forward to hosting you and yours again soon!

  • "Stayed at Sky River Lodge upon arrival cabin was clean. Hot tub was not working but was soon fixed and Cabins for You followed up with me to verify."

  • "Cabin was amazing! We will plan to be back!"

  • "We had an amazing stay. It was beautiful. Even better in person then pictures. Look forward to staying again soon. It was clean, had everything we needed."

  • "everything was great the pool its clean and super comfy and general its a really good house"

  • "Our cabin in was absolutely amazing with the most beautiful views I’ve ever had of the mountains. It slept all 19 of us comfortably. My only issues were the fact that the cabin leaked (water streaming from the ceiling) in one on the front rooms. We did have terrible storms that night but the return response we received was generic “thank you, we will pass along your concerns” and nothing was done. Also, the internet and tvs went out and we could not watch the Final Four. Kind of a big deal for us. Other than that, the accommodations were superb."

  • "This cabin was absolutely AMAZING!! I would recommend staying in this cabin every single year. I typically use Cabins of the smoky mountains for our cabin rentals, but Cabins for you was the easiest rental ever. Everything was just as it appeared in the advertisement. Actually the pictures didn't give the cabin all of it's justice. If you think the pictures were amazing wait until you see it in person.... It was so gorgeous I felt so bad we couldn't find a broom anywhere so we swept with a mop lol! It was just too beautiful to leave a crumb..."

  • "Absolutely beautiful cabin! Exactly as described, but the pictures did the cabin no justice. Very clean, easy to find, easy to access. I would 100% rebook with cabins for you."

  • "The cabin was very nice, it looks just like the pictures. The beds were very comfortable. It was a perfect stay for us. When we did have to call about a issue, they had someone right out to fix it."

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Sky River Lodge and the amazing views. Would have liked to have WiFi working on all the TV’s in the rooms. Most TV’s only got 1 channel and we couldn’t connect to Netflix/Hulu etc. If you have a travel Roku or Apple TV bring that to watch games, or movies in the evening. Fan remotes need new batteries, and the fan in the bunk bed room has no remote and doesn’t work even from the light switch. The pool is very clean, and we enjoyed it a lot. We left some floats for other guests to use. The view of the mountains from the pool or hot tub is absolutely beautiful. The morning views from the upstairs deck are breathtaking. The fireplace in the evenings provides great heat. Overall this cabin was a 10/10 and better than the pictures. Plenty of beach towels in the pool area, lots of dishes, pots & pans etc. The two fridges, microwaves, ovens, & dishwashers make cooking a breeze."

  • "Our entire group raved about this cabin all weekend and nobody was ready to leave. From the indoor pool to the theater to the beautiful views from the hot tub and all the comfy bedrooms- our not always easy to please group of adults was floored by the stunning accommodations. 10/10 would stay agin!"

  • "The cabin was gorgeous! Perfect for an extended family getaway!"
