About the property

Spacious Log Cabin In The Heart Of Pigeon Forge. Game Room, Hot Tub, 65" tv

NO PETS and NO SMOKING inside the cabin! No Exceptions! You must be 25 to rent. No groups of high school or college kids unless each is accompanied by their parents.

We have no fire damage in or around our cabin. No attractions were affected in Pigeon Forge. All the major attractions in Gatlinburg are also still intact.

Yeti's Retreat is a spacious log cabin, located ideally in the heart of Pigeon Forge in the prestigious Eagles Ridge North resort. With an open concept floor plan and a roomy 2,000 square feet, your family will have plenty of space to enjoy each other's company without feeling cramped. Soaring cathedral ceilings and big windows make the cabin feel even larger. The cabin has three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. It can sleep up to 8 people.

The cabin is surrounded on the main level by a large wrap around deck. Enjoy lovely mountain views on the rocking chairs or sip your coffee and eat your breakfast out on the outdoor dining set. The barbeque grill is run from the natural gas from the cabin (so no worries about running out of gas in the middle of cooking)!

When you enter the cabin, the first thing you'll notice is the open floor plan with the living area, dining area and kitchen all open to each other. The ceilings are all tall, cathedral ceilings. The back of the cabin is all windows, allowing for lots of natural light and lovely views from the cabin.

The living room has enough seating for your entire family to sit at once and enjoy a movie on the 65" flat screen TV. There is also a gas fireplace (available for use in the cooler months).

There is a large kitchen area, fully stocked with all that you need for making meals during your stay. We even have two coffee pots, in case people in your group like different types of coffee.

All the bedrooms and bathrooms in the cabin have an animal theme, based on animals you will find in the Smoky Mountain area. On the main level is the Bear Room, a King Suite with memory foam mattress with a full, attached bathroom.

When walking down to the lower level, you will enter the game room. You can spend many hours with your family members or friends playing pool, air hockey or darts. You can also challenge someone some of the sixty different classic games on the arcade system, including Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Frogger.

From the game room, you can go out on another deck. This is where you can relax in the hot tub while enjoying the mountain views. There is also additional seating on this deck.

The two additional bedrooms are located on the lower level. The Horse Room is a King Suite. It has a king bed, a whirlpool bath located in the room, a full attached bathroom and a door that leads to the back deck where the hot tub is located.

The Eagle Room has two queen sized beds and an attached full bathroom. There is also a vanity set up in the room, so one person can get ready while another is showering.

About Steve and Jody Belkowski

Yeti's Retreat is owned by Ray & Claire Belkowski. Their son & his wife, Steve and Jody Belkowski, rent this cabin as a vacation rental for them when they are not using it. Steve & Jody have three other cabins in Pigeon Forge that they rent under the name Bigfoot Cabins. All Bigfoot Cabins properties are privately owned and operated by the Belkowski Family.

Steve and Jody Belkowski purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Steve and Jody Belkowski chose Tennessee

Ray & Claire have been visiting the area for a few years now and have spent a lot of time in the Eagles Ridge North resort, at The Bigfoot Lodge, the cabin of their son & his wife. When this cabin came available on the market, they jumped at the opportunity to buy it as they know it's a great resort and that a cabin this nice, located in such a perfect location, is hard to find.

What makes this cabin unique

It is very hard to find a cabin with a nice mountain view that doesn't require you to drive on scary, narrow roads with big drop offs on the sides to get to it. It's even harder to find one so close to all the restaurants and attractions in Pigeon Forge. Yeti's Retreat gives you all that, plus a lot of space to spread out, all wrapped up in a lovely, homey cabin.

average rating of 5.0 based on 29 reviews

Yetis Retreat was the perfect spot for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Yetis Retreat. The cabin was clean and very well appointed when we arrived. The owner called to check in with us and make sure everything was ok, which was very appreciated. It was a great location, close to all the attractions in Pigeon Forge but felt secluded and private. The kids loved the game room and jacuzzi! We will be back!!!

There were 6 of us (3 couples) ages 56-70 that stayed in Yeti's Retreat from February 9-12. This place was amazing! The pictures don't do it justice. Our weather just happened to be perfect too but even if it hadn't been, the cabin itself was so amazing that the weather wouldn't have gotten us down. The king size bedroom on the main full is really nice with a huge bathroom. My favorite thing about the cabin is the open floor plan. You can be cooking breakfast in the kitchen and still talk to everyone in the living room. Downstairs is the game room with a pool table, air hockey, darts and a video game arcade. Yes we tried them all. The guys even got in to a little pool competition. The porch was very nice and the view was great. We didn't use the grill but the next time we go back (and we will) we plan on using it. There was also a hot tub that we didn't use. There is a king size bedroom downstairs and another bedroom with two queen size beds. They both have their own bathroom. The only complaints about the bedrooms downstairs is that the pillows are really flat but we had enough pillows that we could just double up. All of the beds are really comfortable. This place was extremely clean. It was like out of this world clean. The kitchen had all the pots and pans that you could want, along with 2 coffee makers and it even had a crock pot. I usually take my own pans because there are never enough or the ones that are there, you wouldn't want to cook in, but this was not the case. I didn't even have to use mine. It is only about 1 1/2 miles from the Parkway so it was so easy to get to places to eat, shop or ride around. There are not enough words to describe how great this place is and the owner, Ray Belkowski, even called us on Friday morning to make sure every thing was good. He was like talking to a friend. I wouldn't hesitate to rent from this family. The TVs and Internet worked really well and the only complaint was from one of the guys because they couldn't get the Destination channel to watch his fishing show but they actually went and watched a B.A.S.S. weigh in live so all was good. Thank you Ray and Claire for sharing your beautiful cabin with us and we will definitely be booking it again. We had a very good and relaxing time.

Owner's Response: Hello, Cindy! Thank you for this wonderful, detailed review. :) We're so glad that you enjoyed the cabin. We'll have to take a look at the pillows downstairs as it sounds like it's time to replace them. We look forward to hearing from you in the future for your next booking!

A Wonderful Christmas in the Smokies!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin met all of our expectations! The best part was it was meticulously cleaned. We've stayed at other rentals and they always look good online, but are somewhat dirty.... not here! Everyone had room to stay comfortably and the finishes were upscale. Because this was Christmas, it was REALLY appreciated that the cabin was decorated all over with festive Christmas decor, 2 trees (a small full size and a smaller cute one in the corner). Even the large windows up high hosted little snowmen. The entire family enjoyed the game room since we were cabin bound on Christmas, but the fun kept going throughout our stay. The hot tub was a lovely addition and fun to get in try for a few minutes. The location was absolutely excellent and we couldn't imagine how hard it would have been to get up to another cabin even higher. The Island, restaurants and Gatlinburg were all close by. We also celebrated my son's 18th birthday on December 26th, and he quite enjoyed the Hollywood Stars Car Museum in Gatlinburg, even getting his picture in the Fast and Furious car. I was even able to bake him his "required" traditional birthday cake because the cabin was well stocked! We truly loved our trip to the cabin! I love going new places and staying at new locations, but I wouldn't hesitate to stay at another one of the cabins owned by these owners! They even called us on Christmas morning to wish us a Merry Christmas and to make sure everything was going well. We really couldn't say more! Thanks for everything! The cabin was a memory we'll never forget and our son will always remember turning 18 in Tennessee at your cabin! Much love and thanks!!

Owner's Response: What can I say? This review put a giant smile on my face! Thank you so much! We are so glad that your family enjoyed Christmas and celebrating your son's 18th birthday at our cabin (our daughter just turned 18, too, on New Year's Day)! We'd love it if you came back again in the future. :)
