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’s only a few minutes from dinner theaters, amusement parks, and other attractions? And one that offers luxuries such as jetted tubs, game arcades, free WiFi, and a home theater? Good news: Big Bear Retreat is it.
Located in Pigeon Forge’s Arrowhead Resort, pet-friendly Big Bear Retreat has 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms spread out among its 3 floors. Two of the bedrooms, on the main floor, are master suites: Each includes a king-size bed, a flat-screen TV, a fireplace, and a private bathroom with a jetted tub and a shower. Four more bedrooms and 2 more bathrooms are downstairs. Three of these bedrooms have king-size beds; the 4th has queen-over-queen bunk beds. The remaining bedroom and bathroom are on the loft 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, you can shoot pool, play foosball, compete against a friend at the dual Nascar simulation-driving arcades, or play the more than 60 games on the arcade. The game room also has a 60” curved 4K HDTV with Netflix, Hulu, and other app connectivity. 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” 4K HDTV with a sound bar. If the movie isn’t to your liking, you can play at the loft’s 2-person multigame arcade or challenge a friend to 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 grill.
In addition to the grill, Big Bear Retreat has a fully equipped kitchen. Appliances (including a dishwasher), pots and pans, serveware and tableware: You’ll find everything you need (except the food, of course!).
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 use during the summer. What’s more, the resort is only a mile from the Pigeon Forge Parkway. In just a few minutes you can drive from Big Bear Retreat to dinner theaters, WonderWorks, the Titanic Museum, go-kart tracks, mini golf, and more. Dollywood is less than 15 minutes away, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is only a bit farther.
