Luxurious lodge w/2 private hot tubs, home theater, game room, & furnished decks

Upon entry to The Big Oak Lodge, you find expansive windows, a large open floor plan, and high ceilings that make one feel as though the outdoors have found their way in. The cabin’s main level provides comfortable gathering spaces, private oasis, and a fully equipped kitchen for easy meal preparation. The magnificent fireplace – open to the living room, dining room, and kitchen – anchors the home and allows for warm and memorable family gatherings. The living area is simply out of every vacationer's dream. It features several, large, and comfortable sofas facing each other and near a stone encased fireplace, creating the perfect ambiance for a joyful and entertaining gathering with your friends. Worried about not having enough space for dining? Fear not! This charming mountain retreat offers its guests seven (yes, seven!) dining tables providing enough space for the entire group. The first-floor deck boasts several rocking chairs, grills, and magnificent forest views! As you make your way up to the second level, you'll find the most entertaining and fun-filled room of the house! A large theatre setting (seating plus a large flatscreen TV), a kitchenette (full-size fridge, microwave, and sink), and a pool table offer hours of entertainment. If you'd like to rest your muscles after spending the day downtown, this mountain paradise has not one, but two private hot tubs available!

What’s nearby:
The Great Smoky Mountain National Park would be mere minutes from your doorstep. Pack a picnic lunch and stop at the Metcalf Bottoms picnic area. Cades Coves is a great drive where you can see how the original settlers of Gatlinburg lived. Pigeon Forge is just a few miles away waiting for you to have a full day shopping and dining and family fun.

Beautiful home with a kitchen to die for. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all very comfortable. We enjoyed the game areas and theatre.

The only downside is that cars from other cabins took some of our parking spaces, making the parking logistics tricky. There should also be a property manager on site to oversee the shared pool. There was no oversight and a party there was getting way out of control, and we had to remove our kids from the area.

Overall, we would rent again! Loved this cabin!
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Bethany! We are glad you enjoyed this home. We are sorry to hear other guests parked in your spaces, and while our local property manager is not on-site to greet guests, our professional, dedicated team is standing by should any need arise. We encourage guests to reach out to our property management team directly via the contact information provided in check-in instructions. We hope you'll return!

Plan on coming again.

This spacious lodge was wonderful for our group. We love how open the downstairs was. We had 65 adults, and that was just the amount of space for sleeping. We would have not had enough room had we had any more adults. The only other suggestion I would have would be for more pots and pans and also some shelving or racks in the showers to put soap and shampoo. We had to use the floor. Other than that, the location was fantastic and the experience was great
Manager response:
Thank you for your wonderful feedback! We have passed your suggestions regarding the pots, pans, and shelving to the manager to discuss with the owner. We can't wait to host you again soon!

The house was very nice and lived up to our expectations although many of the kitchen utensils were not at clean as they should have been. Other than that was a very nice reunion home for our family
