Once you arrive at Kangaroo Retreat and step inside the living room your first inclination will be to kick off your shoes and sink into the cozy leather sofa.
Flip on the large flat screen television and search the channels for a movie or favorite show. It may be a challenge not to take a nap as the warm afternoon sunlight peeks through the windows. After an entertaining dinner show at Dolly Parton’s Stampede, keep the good times going with a game of Pictionary or Charades in the living room. On cold nights flip on the gas fireplace that will instantly warm the room, and enjoy a cup of hot cocoa or a good book in the comfy reading chair.
If you enjoy cooking, or prefer spending a few nights in the cabin for family meals, you’ll love the fully-equipped, full-size kitchen at Kangaroos Retreat. Stocked with all of the essentials, this kitchen will make meal preparation quick and easy.

Log wood benches provide comfortable seating so you can enjoy a leisurely meal and make memories spending time with the people you love. If you like a Southern cookout, turn on the grill located outside and enjoy a feast of freshly cooked hamburgers and hot dogs or make some grilled cheese sandwiches and a pot of chili while watching afternoon football games on the nearby living room flat screen.
After dinner, gather everyone and return to the table for a family game night of board games and cards, set up the kids with some seasonal crafts, or pull out a puzzle. In the morning, let the children watch cartoons while eating breakfast. And we can’t forget to mention the views. Don’t forget to savor the views from the table. You won’t get these downtown!
After a full day of activities you will want to rest easy. Choose from one of five cozy bedrooms in Kangaroo Retreat. Featuring three-king-size beds, two queen-bunk beds and two queen sleeper sofas, all of your guests will sleep well. Pull back the covers of the luxurious bedding and crawl-in to fall fast asleep. In the morning, encourage guests to take their time rising so they can turn on the bedroom’s flat screen for the morning news or favorite sitcom.
Designed for privacy, bedrooms are spread out over four floors. A king bedroom is located on the entry level; a king master suite with its own fireplace and bathroom is located on the second floor; two bedrooms with queen-size bunks are on the lower level; and a king bedroom is on the bottom floor. No matter what level or room your guests choose, they will find a welcoming room where they can unwind and rest comfortably.
When you have returned from exploring Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, you will want to hang out in the game room where you can play billiards or indulge in drinks at the pub-style table. Catch an important sporting event on the flat screen television and relax in the privacy of your cabin. For some added fun create a tournament of champions and invite guests to play American Eight Ball. No matter what games you decide to play, make time to laugh, drink, and share in fellowship with your family or friends.
The media room is located on the lower level and is a great spot for children and teens to hang out and play Xbox games on the mounted flat screen television. The variety of games are not guaranteed, so make sure to have your children bring their favorites from home. Sit back on the couch and watch them hilariously compete, or maybe even work up the courage to take on your kids in a friendly, competitive game! The nearby kitchenette is convenient for crafting cocktails, heating up a snack in the microwave, or making a cup of hot tea to sip on while curling up on the sofa and reading a book while the children play in the theater room.
Next to the media room is the theater room. Make some popcorn in the media rooms kitchenette, and have a special movie night in Kangaroo Retreat’s private theater room. Pop in your family’s favorite DVD brought from home and invite the children to settle down for an afternoon nap, or after dinner, have a special showing of a new film recently released. Several plush leather couches sit on their own tiered level so there isn’t a bad seat in the house! Movie posters line the walls creating a true theater experience. Enjoy the movies!
Featuring full views of the Smoky Mountain skyline and miles of rolling peaks with expansive Tennessee skies, Kangaroo Retreat offers an amazing outdoor experience. In the early mornings, sit on the deck as you watch the low clouds creep over the mountains and the early dreamy sunlight rises. For complete unwinding after a busy day, ease into the warm, soothing waters of the outdoor hot tub to relax your tired muscles after exploring Cades Cove.
On beautiful days, turn on the gas grill and barbecue your favorite meats and veggies before settling around the dining room table for a lovely group meal. During the summer months take the family to the community pool of Sherwood Forest. Bring your towels and lay-out around the pool to soak up some sun while the kids splash around in the cool waters.
