About Jody and Steve Belkowski
In 2010, Steve and I visited the Great Smoky Mountains area together for the first time. We had both previously been married and had four children between us. We had been looking for an affordable vacation where we wouldn't waste all of our vacation budget paying for flights. Little did we know that one decision would set a future path for our lives that we never anticipated! Flash forward two years. We are back in the area again, this time with 22 of our closest family and friends, getting married in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Two weeks after our wedding, we were back yet again, looking for a cabin to purchase! We had just gone from two homes to one and decided we wanted to invest the equity from the home sale into a cabin that our family could enjoy and that we could offer as a vacation rental when we weren't using it. We had been on the guest side of vacation rentals many times, especially me. After I had my third child, staying in hotels just wasn't feasible or comfortable any longer, so I had stayed in quite a few rentals before we purchased one of our own. We went into this with the thought process that we wanted to offer our guests the very best experience we possibly could. Building on our own experiences as vacation rental guests was a great start. It was September 2012 when we purchased our first cabin. Our guests really seemed to enjoy the extra efforts we put forth to make their vacation enjoyable. We enjoyed, more than we even anticipated, the fact that families were making memories that would last forever in our cabin. Today, we own three cabins of our own and manage two more for our family and friends. We've figured out that Tennessee is our happy place. We'll be moving there as soon as we can, once Steve qualifies for retirement from his position at Ford Motor Company. We hope that you love your stay in our cabin! ~~Jody Belkowski
Jody and Steve Belkowski purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Jody and Steve Belkowski chose Pigeon Forge
We love the Smoky Mountains region. There is so much to do in the area, all year round. Even though there is plenty to do in the area, we also wanted a cabin that offers plenty to do in itself. The cabin attracted us due to the theater room, spacious game room, great views, the knotty pine walls and the wonderful resort community of Eagles Ridge North. Finally, the cabin is in a perfect location, so close to everything the Smoky Mountains has to offer!
What makes this Cabin unique
The biggest selling point for us in buying The Bigfoot Lodge was the theater room! What a fabulous feature to have in a vacation rental.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We were very pleased with this property. Each family had their own floor which made it easier when the 2 year olds were napping. Older boys enjoyed the game room and the movie room. The location made it easy to get to the activities we did.
Three family vacation
We had three families stay at this wonderful home. Everyone was comfortable and the place was immaculate. The owners were great and easy to contact. Everything was accurate from the description and there were no surprises. Thank you for allowing us to stay. We enjoyed ourselves.
2019 Family Vacation
What a wonderful cabin!! The cabin was clean, spacious and near the “Strip”!! We will be staying again, hopefully next year 2020!!
Our new favorite cabin in the Smoky Mountains
This is our new favorite cabin in the Smokies. We have been going to the Smokies for Mother’s Day for the past nine years and Big Foot is by far our favorite cabin. It is only thirty minutes from Gatlinburg and most of our favorite hiking trails. The cabin is not on a crazy steep road like some of the others we been to. There is plenty of parking space in front of the cabin. The cabin itself is in great condition and lots of counter space in the kitchen. Steve and Jody were very responsive to the questions we had. Our kids and grandkids had a great time. We definitely recommend this cabin!
Had a great time ! Small issue with tv in theatre room but was repaired on 2 nd. Day. Thanks, Diane
Great Cabin Getaway!
Took the grandsons for a few days away together. 3 are teenagers, and the house was just what we needed. Kept everyone busy and having fun. Great for all ages I’m sure. Very clean, nicely decorated, comfortable, and spacious. Hope to go back
