Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We are Glenn and Vickie Hill and have been the original owners of Bearway To Heaven since 2003. We have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. We had many wonderful memories of Gatlinburg with our children when they were small. Our inspiration to own a cabin came after we spent an anniversary in a cabin in the Smoky Mountains. We began renting our cabin on our own in August, 2008. We wanted to offer something that our management companies did not offer to our guests, a more personal touch. We also wanted to assure our guests that everything would be perfect for their arrival. It is important to know about any immediate issues with our vacation home. Now, thanks to our wonderful property manager/cleaner, we are alerted to any immediate situations that might affect our guest’s stay, and can address these in a timely manner. When we go on vacation we know how important it is to us to have the property clean, tastefully decorated and everything in good, working condition. We are committed to provide this to you. We make frequent trips to our cabin for repairs and occasionally to vacation. When you visit Bearway To Heaven, we know you will not be disappointed in our vacation property. You can read the comments from our guest.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Stoplight 3:
When we decided to purchase a vacation home, Gatlinburg was one of the first places that came to our mind. We had visited many times when our children were young and had many wonderful memories of the Smoky Mountains and Gatlinburg. We chose our cabin because of it's convenient location and privacy. It is only 1.3 miles from the heart of downtown Gatlinburg. While at the cabin you feel as if you are miles away from everything, but you can hop in your car and be to all of the attractions within minutes.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The number one comment that guest make in our book is the wonderful location. Bearway to Heaven is 2.5 miles from the entrance of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, 1.3 miles from the Ripley's Aquarium and 3 miles from the famous Glades Arts and Crafts Community. Greenbrier Park is approximately 6 miles and has an 8 mile round trip trail that leads to Ramsay Cascades. The Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail is only about 2 miles from our cabin and trail ends up on the road that takes you to our cabin.
