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.

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 Pigeon Forge

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.

Awesome Vacation property

  • 5 of 5

My family loved the Yeti retreat property. The cabin was in excellent shape and very clean. The wrap around porch was one of the favorite spots for our family. My son in law and I enjoyed the game room especially the pool table. The hot tub was another favorite spot for the family. The bedrooms were all very spacious and beds were comfortable. My family hated to leave the property at the end of our vacation. We would definitely like to return to the property on a vacation in the future.

Beautiful property! Our trip was wonderful and the house with all the amenities was perfect.

Your location was very convenient to the park, Townsend and the caves, Pigeon Forge and Gatlingburg. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Judith! Location was definitely one of the important factors we considered when buying a cabin! We had stayed at hard-to-get-to cabins in the past and didn't want one like that. We'd love it if you were to come stay at Yeti's Retreat again in the future!

Family Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Yeti's Cabin in Pigeon Forge felt just like home! It was clean, spacious!, beautifully decorated, and well furnished. The game room, hot tub, and whirlpool bath were special features that we enjoyed. The location was perfect as there were many attractions close by. My favorite feature of the cabin was the outside porches. Nestled among the trees, we could sit on the porch and listen to the birds while watching the sunset. The owner called us at the beginning of our stay with some restaurant ideas and places to visit. This was very helpful and great advice! I would recommend this cabin to anyone visiting Pigeon Forge and maybe we will be lucky to enjoy a return visit someday. Thank you so much!

The porch makes this cabin the ideal retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the perfect retreat for our multi family vacation. It exceeded our expectations. We spent the majority of our time on the porch every day and enjoyed the beautiful views during the day and sat under the stars each night. The porch was spacious and gave the two year old toddler a safe place to move about among the six adults. All of the furniture inside was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We found all the items we needed for cooking and dining. The three bedrooms and three bathrooms gave each family some privacy and made it easy to get ready in the morning. We would not hesitate to book this cabin again in the future.
