Big Bear Retreat, 7 Bedroom, Theater, Pool Access, Nascar Arcade, Sleeps 30
Looking for a Smoky Mountain lodge where you can relax with more than two dozen friends and relatives, and your 4-legged pals as well? How about one that is in the heart of Pigeon Forge, just one mile from the strip, with all its dinner theaters, amusement parks, go-kart tracks, mini golf, and other attractions? And offers luxuries such as jetted tubs, game arcades, free WiFi, and a home theater? Good news: Big Bear Retreat is it.
This beautiful cabin sits at the end of the road at the back of Pigeon Forge’s Arrowhead Resort. Though you are a stone’s throw from all the major attractions, the 3 back decks are peaceful and private. A great place to enjoy your morning coffee, grill up a meal or gaze at the stars while catching up with friends and relatives.
This well laid out lodge has 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms spread out among its 3 floors. On the main floor, are 2 spacious master suites: Each includes a log king-size bed, a large flat-screen TV, a fireplace, and a private bathroom with a jetted tub and a shower. These bedrooms have cathedral ceilings and private doors out to the porch. On the floor below, are four more beautiful log bedrooms, each with jack and jill bathrooms. Three of these bedrooms have king-size beds; the 4th has queen-over-queen bunk beds. The remaining bedroom and bathroom are on the top level. This bedroom has a pair of queen-over-queen bunk beds plus a futon that opens into a bed for 2 so that up to 10 people can sleep here. The kids will love making this their quarters—every night will be a slumber party! Several sofa beds scattered throughout the lodge enable Big Bear Retreat to sleep as many as 30 people.
Sleep might be the last thing on your mind, however: There are so many other things to do instead! In the downstairs game room, for instance, take on a friend in one of the most innovative driving arcades invented to date. These twins linked elite gaming machines have high def 42-inch flat screen displays, surround sound, led lights and feedback steering wheels (pictures coming soon). The gameplay is an exciting, “Combat Racing" that combines classic arcade racing ingredients with play features including unique weapons, huge ramps, epic drop-offs, and players dazzling wipeouts and wrecks. These family-friendly super fun driving machines are an experience not soon to be forgotten.
The game room also has a slate pool table where you can shoot pool while watching the big game on the large smart 60” curved 4K HDTV. Or let loose in a rowdy game of foosball or play the more than 60 games on the multi-arcade. There really is something for everyone. And because the room has its own kitchenette, you don’t have to run upstairs to the main floor’s kitchen every time you want a drink or a snack.
For an even more deluxe viewing experience, head upstairs to Big Bear Retreat’s home theater. From the 8 cinema-style chairs you can enjoy a private screening on a 70” smart 4K HDTV with a soundbar. If the movie isn’t to your liking, you can play the loft’s 2-person multigame arcade or challenge a friend to a spirited game of air hockey. One thing’s for sure: You will never be bored when you stay here!
The great room on the main floor is a comfortable gathering spot for playing board games, watching TV, surfing the web to plan your next day’s adventures or enjoying drinks by the stone-surround fireplace. A wall of windows lets you look out onto the surrounding woods while you kick back on one of the leather couches or eat at one of the 3 dining tables. For those who prefer to dine alfresco, a 4th dining table is on the main deck, as is a gas grill.
In addition to the grill, Big Bear Retreat has a fully equipped kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances, pots, and pans, silverware and tableware: You’ll find everything you need (except the food, of course!). There is even a Keurig, griddle and waffle maker. This place is ready for a big family meal.
Big Bear Lodge’s 3 spacious decks include plenty of rockers. Everyone will be able to revel in the sound of the trees rustling in the breeze, the singing of wrens and warblers during the day, and the serenading of whip-poor-wills and owls at night. The best seat, however, may be in the lower deck’s hot tub. The combination of the massaging jets of water and the fresh mountain air is a delight you’ll long remember.
Arrowhead Resort has an outdoor swimming pool you can enjoy during the summer. This cabin is also handicap accessible with no stairs at the entry and two bedrooms on the main floor with their own bathrooms.
