With dozens of restaurants, group-friendly attractions, shops with almost everything you could imagine, and hundreds of miles (800+) of trails in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, it’s no wonder that Pigeon Forge is such a popular destination for groups. Add the restaurants, shops, and attractions of neighboring Gatlinburg, and you have group getaway that can’t be beat.
So if you’re planning a church retreat, family reunion, school trip, or any big group getaway to the Smokies, check out Paradise Peak. Built new in 2016, this impressive 5-bedroom, 5 ½- bathroom lodge in Pigeon Forge boasts an incredible 4,000+ square feet of space for your group trip, with an equally impressive list of amenities. From a heated private indoor pool with a waterfall and LED lights show and a private home theater with a 100-inch projection movie screen and surround sound to a luxurious kitchen with granite countertops and 3 levels of decks, this large group stunner has it all. Want even more? What about absolutely incredible views of the Great Smoky Mountains, 180-degree views of Mt. LeConte in the distance, and a location less than 2 miles from downtown?!
Whatever type of group vacation you’re planning, Paradise Peak has plenty of conveniences and amenities to accommodate you. And with a location just 1 ½ miles from downtown and 5 miles from Dollywood (in the Sherwood Forest gated community), it’s super convenient to entertainment, shopping, and food to satisfy any taste.
When you travel with a group, you want some great spaces where you can hang out together. Whether it’s for devotionals, game nights, watching a ball game, meetings, or just relaxing, you want a comfortable place to sit around and chat. The living room of Paradise Peak is a great fit, offering two elegant leather sofas flanking a beautiful stone fireplace. There is also a coordinating chair, along with room for kiddos to gather around the large coffee table.
Bring along board games to play here, let the kids color and make holiday-themed crafts, have a place for your laptops and work papers, or just set out snacks when you’re hanging out and watching shows on the big screen TV on the mantel. Lamps by the sofas offer some light for nighttime reading, and massive floor-to-ceiling windows let in tons of natural light and frame those amazing mountain views.
If you’re here for the holidays, gather in front of the gas fireplace to open presents, watch your favorite holiday movies, and reminisce. It’s a spacious by cozy room where families and friends can spend some quality time together – something you won’t get in hotel rooms.
Maybe one of the first things you think about when planning a large group trip is food. With 20 different people come 20 different appetites, often making it a challenge to keep everyone fed and happy. Paradise Peak makes it a bit easier with a beautiful fully equipped kitchen.
If you’re planning to cook some meals, take advantage of this kitchen, boasting elegant dark cabinets, stainless steel appliances – a double-door refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and stove/oven – granite countertops, and travertine tile. You’ll also find enough dishes, utensils, and glassware for the group, along with other cooking essentials to make in-cabin meals easier.
If you’re not planning on doing many full meals here, it will still be great to have a large island for snack buffets and drink bars and a big refrigerator for keeping leftovers (and fudge!) from downtown.
Just off the kitchen in Paradise Peak is a dining room fit for a group. The elegant table features chairs and a bench (with room for 8), and a few more guests can sit at the kitchen island. And if you’re planning for a meal for everyone, take advantage of the living room seating and table in the loft.
As you sit down, you’ll be swept away by the amazing views just through the wall of windows across from you. You won’t get views like this from any restaurant downtown! Check our blog for holiday recipe ideas, or bring along your family favorites for a holiday like home – but better! If it’s game day, fill the table (and kitchen island) with drinks and snacks that the whole group will love.
At the end of the day, Paradise Peak offers plenty of great places for guests to rest their heads. The 5 comfortable bedrooms are also paired up with 5 ½ bathrooms, giving enough room for everyone to get ready. In all, you’ll have room to sleep up to 20 guests with 4 king-size beds, 2 queen-size bunk beds, 1 futon, and 1 sleeper sofa.
Four of the bedrooms have king-size beds, and the 2 queen bunks share a room (perfect for kids!). With so many different options for sleeping, it’s great for multiple families or groups. Each room features nice conveniences like dressers and nightstands, and each has its own Samsung smart TV!
Each room will be its own little retreat, giving guests quiet places to unwind after busy (but fun) days in Pigeon Forge. Three of the bathrooms even feature walk-in showers with beautiful tile details.
Loft | Rec Room
Spacious and boasting high ceilings, the loft in Paradise Peak is a fun place for groups to play. Play around on the pool table, play cards or have a drink at the pub-style table, or relax on the futon between shots. There’s room for others to hang out and chat, and windows here let in more of the Smoky Mountain sunlight.
When you travel with a group, you need lots of ways to entertain. At Paradise Peak, the awesome home theater room will be just one of the ways you can spend time at the cabin. It’s the ultimate movie-watching experience, with theater-style seating (8) with cup holders, movie posters, wall sconces, and a 100-inch projection movie screen with a DVD player, Blu-ray player, and surround sound.
The room also boasts plenty of floor space, so kids and other guests can toss down some blankets and pillows for a fun night in. Just pop some popcorn or make your favorite movie treats in the kitchen and bring them down for a movie marathon. It’s so much better than trying to get a group into town for a movie at the theater.
Private Indoor Pool
The ultimate luxury in a Pigeon Forge cabin, a heated private indoor pool offers fun for kids and adults year-round. At Paradise Peak, splash and float around without missing out on the mountain views! And when it’s sunny outside, the windows in the room will let you enjoy the nice day.
There are chairs for the adults watching over the kids, and there is floor space for others to hang out. The pool even boasts a waterfall and an LED multicolor light show that will be a big hit when the lights go off!
One of the most impressive features of Paradise Peak is the awesome outdoor space. Boasting 3 levels of decks looking out over the beautiful Smoky Mountains, the cabin offers plenty of room for groups to relax outside. Toss some burgers on the propane grill, climb into the outdoor hot tub to unwind, or sit back in the rocking chairs with some hot chocolate on a cool mountain nights.
From the deck, you’ll get spectacular views of the rolling hills, going from deep green to fading hues of blue in the distance. In fall, watch the landscape transform for some of the best leaf watching you’ll get. In winter, cozy up and watch the snow blanket the branches. You’ll even have 180-degree views of Mt. LeConte in the distance. Another outdoor perk is the flat, paved driveway and parking area, offering space for 4 cars.
A big group probably means a lot of dirty clothes and towels. Paradise Peak has you covered with a washer/steam dryer in the cabin. You’ll also have high-speed wireless internet, so you can stay connected with emails, see what events are going on via our blog, plan out your days downtown, or just play around while you’re hanging out in the cabin. And with a location in the Sherwood Forest resort, Paradise Peak also offers community pool access, so you’ll have a place to cool off when the summer sun gets too hot.
Without sacrificing the incredible Smoky Mountain views, Paradise Peak boasts a location less than 2 miles to the Parkway downtown. It will be a breeze hopping in a car and heading downtown to play, eat, and shop. Need some ideas for the group? Check out…
Just about 5 minutes from Paradise Peak, Dollywood is perfect for groups. Between the musical shows, roller coasters, kids’ rides, carnival games and prizes, unique stores, dessert shops, and restaurants, there really is something for everyone in the group.
