Welcome to Sleepy Bear Ranch, your pet-friendly Pigeon Forge cabin tucked among the trees in the Great Smoky Mountains. Slip away for rest, relaxation, and fun with family and friends at this semi-private, 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom cabin with 1,500+ square feet of space to accommodate up to 11 guests. From the conveniences of home and some fun vacation extras to nice outdoor spaces and cozy interiors, Sleepy Bear Ranch has all you need to rejuvenate and reset!
Each of the 3 bedrooms in the cabin has its own TV, so there is no fighting over remotes. Just flip on the TV when you climb into bed and doze off watching a movie. One bedroom has a king-size bed while the other two feature queen-size beds. There is also a twin-over-queen bunk in one of the queen bedrooms and a sleeper sofa for additional sleeping space. In the living room, relax on the sofa in front of the big screen TV and hang out with family and friends. The living room also doubles as the rec room, with a basketball shooting game and an arcade console. Sleepy Bear Ranch also features wireless internet, making it easy to stay connected, and a jumbo Connect 4 game!
You’ll feel right at home in Sleepy Bear Ranch, with a fully equipped kitchen where you can cook meals and whip up snacks and drinks. Then sit down at the dining table for meals or board games and card games late into the night. The washer and dryer in the cabin are also very convenient, allowing you to pack light or wash up after hitting the hiking trails. Outside, toss around a ball, make s’mores over the firepit, or have dinner under the awning.
Open concept with plenty of space to spread out, the living room at Sleepy Bear Ranch is relaxing. Hop on the sofa (doubles as a queen sleeper) for a rest after traveling, shopping all day, or beating The Escape Game in town. You can unwind with your partner on the loveseat with a couple glasses of wine or flip on the big screen TV for entertainment anytime. Behind the couches is a rec space with a fun arcade unit and basketball shooting game! You can play classic arcade games into the night and shoot hoops with friends during downtime. The living room is like the central hub of the home where you can sit down, chat, plan, and relax with your group.
Steps from the living room awaits the fully equipped kitchen that was made to make your vacation life simpler. You can save money by whipping up dishes and snacks at the cabin. Plus, it’s outfitted with everything you need to prep and serve meals so you don’t have to overpack. Stainless steel appliances allow you to cook, store, and reheat food easily. Plates, glassware, mugs, and cutlery are also provided, and there’s a coffeemaker to keep up energy levels while hanging at the cabin.
Serve meals and snacks just off the kitchen in the dining area that features a large wooden table for 6. Sofa seating in the living room nearby allows everyone to eat and chat together. The dining table is also ideal for playing board or card games together, propping open a laptop to work or homeschool, or setting up a coloring and crafting station for the kids.
Ready to hit the hay in the Smokies? Tuck Fido into his doggie bed, then slip into one of 3 bedrooms — each boasting a mounted TV so everyone can enjoy entertainment in bed! The main bedroom features a king-size bed while another harbors a queen-size bed and the last has a queen-size bed and a twin-over-queen bunk. This room also boasts a jumbo Connect 4 game for added fun. Don’t forget the sofa in the living room pulls out into a queen-size sleeper for extra guests. There are also 3 full bathrooms in the home so getting ready for bed or a party won’t be a hassle for your group.
Outside, a large awning provides a large covered space to unwind with the tree-studded scenery at this semi-private, pet-friendly cabin in Pigeon Forge. Fire up the gas grill for a family cookout or birthday burgers and dine at the outdoor table, also great for sipping morning coffee or peeling away for a little quiet time in nature. There’s also an uncovered firepit area with a few Adirondack chairs, a nice spot to unwind under the stars, roast a few marshmallows, and reconnect with loved ones.
Note the roads to the cabin are easier, and the driveway is steep and paved with gravel in spots and parking for 4 vehicles at the top. There is plenty of grass to let your pooch sniff around or catch a ball on a leash. And the front porch is roomy and covered with only 4 steps up to reach it, so you can unpack and load the cars easily.
Not only providing essentials and extras, Sleepy Bear Ranch also has a washer/dryer for guest use and free Wi-Fi so you can stay connected. Plus, this is a pet-friendly Pigeon Forge cabin, so you can bring along your furry friends to enjoy the Great Smoky Mountains with YOU!
