Private Cabin Retreat Adventure in the Smoky Mountains

Plan your class trip to a luxurious cabin deep in the heart of the Smoky Mountains!  Take the road less traveled on a wilderness retreat that also embraces the creature comforts of 16 bedrooms and an indoor pool!  Think of it as “glamping” for your group!   


Experience two nights and three days in the magnificent Smoky Mountains, isolated from the crowds and surrounded by natural splendor.  The Big Vista Lodge is nestled among the trees and boasts magnificent, panoramic views of the mountains.  64 guests can sleep comfortably in 16 rooms with private baths.  Start each day in the crisp, fresh air on one of the cabin’s huge decks or covered porches!   Your lodge is equipped with a massive, fully stocked kitchen on the main floor so you can prepare home-cooked meals or relax and order in.  Immense picture windows offer breathtaking views in the main entry, and a cozy stone fireplace in the living room makes for a perfect game night or impromptu performance space.   Big Vista Lodge keeps the kids occupied with a huge game room, complete with full-sized arcade games and a pool table.  They’ll also love the convenience of a 15’x32’ INDOOR pool!  An outdoor fireplace, hot tub and observation room are part of the fun as well.  Pop some popcorn and grab a spot in the 30-seat theater room for movie night!  



While Dollywood is typically a busy theme park, it’s 160 acres of mountain landscape and open air make for a fun time at the park!

Smoky Mountains Guided Tour

 Take a private, guided tour of the spectacular Smoky Mountains.  Explore nature’s bounty along gorgeous trails, flowering meadows and magnificent waterfalls.  Choose from a four or eight-hour itinerary.

Pigeon Forge Snow

Imagine the excitement of a snow day in 70-degree comfort!  Pigeon Forge Snow is an indoor winter wonderland where you can snow tube, build snowmen, or fashion a fort.  The snow is real and so is the fun! Private student packages are available before or after regular business hours.

Pink® Adventure Tours

If you’ve always imagined yourself off-roading (or staying comfortably on the road) in a Jeep®, now’s your chance!  See the Smokies from a whole new perspective as you take a private Pink® Jeep® tour of the beautiful mountain scenery.

Ripley’s Aquarium 

On the must-do list is Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies.  Voted America’s #1 aquarium by TripAdvisor, it is also a top destination for viewing penguins.  Yep- right in the heart of Tennessee!  Pet stingrays and horseshoe crabs, check out 12 ft. sharks and explore the aquarium in a series of clear underwater tunnels. The Aquarium will welcome your group for a private visit from 8:00 – 9:00 am any day before opening.  They’ll also take you on a private, behind-the-scenes tour from 9:00 – 9:45 am Mondays through Fridays.  It’s “fin”tastic!

Rafting in the Smokies

The early birds in your group will relish an opportunity to take to the treetops for a private Zipline Canopy Tour and High Elements Ropes Challenge Course experience.  Rafting in the Smokies invites your group to enjoy the fresh air, flora and fauna of the Smokies before it opens to the general public.  It’s a great way to start the day!  

Titanic Museum Attraction’s First Class Dinner Experience

Groups of 35 – 100 can attend an elite, First Class Dinner in a private 3rd floor room at the Titanic Museum Attraction.  Servers are in costume as guests enjoy fabulous fare. There may be a few surprises on the menu as well!

The Great Smoky Mountain Murder Mystery Dinner Show 

Groups of 50 or more can enjoy a side-splitting private performance at The Great Smoky Mountain Murder Mystery Dinner Show. It’s murder, mayhem, and a mouthwatering meal – perfect for students!   If you love to travel with your students but are a little anxious about the crowds, consider a private Smoky Mountain adventure.  Our expert team at KA will help you craft an exclusive experience that’s perfect for your group!

I have been traveling with Kaleidoscope for 19 years and still continue to be impressed by their expertise and willingness to go the extra mile to make my trip a success!
