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.

Great Location. Game room could use improvements

  • 4 of 5

House was clean and well equipped. Owner very responsive. Even called the first day of our stay to check in.

Game room could use some improvements. This was a bigger deal to use because we use it quite a bit. Pool table was small yet too big for the room. Difficult to play without sticks hitting the walls. Room itself was crowded. Not suitable for more than 6 or so people as there isnt any seating other than wooden stools. Air hockey table was small and didnt work well. Suggestion would be to remove the hockey table and add a small couch for some comfortable seating. Also turn the pool table 90 degrees to allow for more room to play. All else was great and the location was convenient to everything including two grocery stores and many restaurants. If the game room isnt a big deal for you than this is a 5 start rental.

Owner's Response: Denise, Thank you for the review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and loved the cabin but honestly we have never heard anything but praise about the game room which can be seen in other reviews. The pool table is 7 foot which is standard for a vacation rental and we have since added a few more stools and some shorter sticks. We try to make the cabin the best we possibly can.

Nice family cabin

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in Pigeon Forge and at Yeti's Retreat. Very clean, neat cabin with plenty of room for our family of five. Owners actually called us to check on us and make sure all was going well. They recommended some good places to eat, and gave us other information about the area in a printable packet prior to our stay. Cabin is handy to the main strip in Pigeon Forge, but far enough away to be quiet. Would definitely stay again!
