Wears Valley cabin description

See our other cabin. Vrbo.com/601843

With it's unforgettable views, beautiful decor, and full list of amenities, Closer to Heaven has the allure of a private mountain paradise away from it all...

Tucked away within the Hickory Hollow Resort Community, yet minutes away from all attractions and the beautiful National Park, Closer To Heaven is your ultimate mountain getaway that offers a perfect blend of privacy and convenience.

Pictures can't truly show the full beauty overlooking famous Wears Valley, but perched 1,950 ft. in elevation and nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountain National Park, Closer To Heaven offers these picturesque views from nearly every location on the property.

Wake up in the beautiful master suite to the sound of wildlife just steps away. Enjoy your morning coffee while sitting on the masterfully crafted log picnic table and listen to the chirping birds, chattering squirrels, and abundance of other wildlife within the area. All of this within view of the breathtaking Smokies.

Peaceful rain showers can be enjoyed under the covered porch or even from the one-of-a-kind reading nook that no other cabin has to offer. Situated at the end of a small catwalk looking out of floor to ceiling windows, enjoy the tree framed view while reading your favorite book.

After long days of hiking and seeing the attractions, a night of rejuvenation is a must! Offering privacy and relaxation, take some time to unwind in the hot tub that sits upon the back deck overlooking the trees and the mountains.

The Chef within you can whip up any meal you'd like in the fully equipped kitchen or over the hot coals of the BBQ grill. Also enjoy a nice glass of wine from one of the local wineries and get a taste of the area!

Give yourself the vacation you truly deserve by booking this one-of -a-kind cabin today!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: My wife Leina and I (Kendall) got married in June of 2009. I previously worked in TN at a nuclear plant that is located about 2 hours from Pigeon Forge. I absolutely loved the area while I worked there and always wanted to go back. We now live in IL and I currently work at a nuclear plant locally, and my wife Leina works for a consulting firm. Last year we visited the area again and decided to look for property while we were there. We purchased our first cabin last year. It is called Closer To Heaven and is located in Wears Valley. We decided to rent it out while we weren't occupying it and quickly found that with my job, last minute vacations are tough to plan and the cabin was usually booked. We looked around for more property so that we could have a couple of choices when we visit and found our other cabin, Eagle's View.

                  Why the Owner Chose Wears Valley:
                  My wife an I bought our cabin because we just absolutely love the location and the views. Anyone who has ever been to eastern TN knows just how amazing the Smoky Mountains are; and if it is your first time, you will soon see for yourself! Being located in Wears Valley is probably the biggest treat for us. We really enjoy the small town feel while being so close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Wears Valley is full of great farmers markets, antique stores, and restaurants. Everyone there is so friendly and always make us feel welcome, and that really made our cabin the one for us.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  We looked at numerous cabins and none of them had the reading nook like this one does. It is very unique and sets it apart from others.
