Overview

About the property

3 BR, 4 Bath With Stunning Views - Just Minutes to Nat'l Park

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! Unlike many rental cabin resort areas that have cabins 'right next door' our cabin is situated on five private acres, on the stunning Cove Mountain. This means you aren't looking out onto the roofs of other cabins, nor looking to the right and left of you only to see other cabin decks/porches. It makes you feel secluded although you are close to all of the attractions and conveniences of the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area. Our cabin is right on the edge of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Situated in Wears Valley, TN, about 9 miles from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, this cabin is in an ideal location that many cabin and chalet rentals do not offer.

Our log cabin is truly all natural wood (there is NO sheet rock anywhere in this cabin). Our cabin is very spacious (about 2400 sq ft). There are three levels of living space. The main level has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed and private bathroom, the living room has HDTV/LCD satellite TV, stone fireplace and open concept kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is well equipped with new stainless steel appliances. There is a large deck off the main living area, with plenty of rocking chairs and a porch swing to enjoy the breathtaking views. The space boasts floor to ceiling windows, which makes you feel as if you are floating in the clouds. The views from every room in the cabin are absolutely spectacular.

The upper floor is a loft style, with high ceilings and plenty of natural light, which means amazing views from every angle. There are two queen beds on the loft level, and a full bath.

The lower level boasts an entire wall of glass with doors to a beautiful deck. The deck features log chairs for relaxing, and a warm and a brand new jacuzzi that looks out into the valley. On this level there is a full bath, two queen size sleeper sofas, a pool table, and an HDTV/LCD TV with satellite, video games.

Although our cabin is located very high on the mountain, the roads are all well paved thus providing easy access.

Our cabin may be very secluded, but it is very convenient in that it is not too far from everything in town. There is a gas station (with groceries) at the foot of the mountain and a Kroger grocery store that is only about 10 minutes away. Being so close to the national park entrance means you can take the “scenic route” to downtown Gatlinburg, bypassing the Parkway if you so desire. If you want to go to Pigeon Forge, the parkway is a less than 10-minute drive. Shopping malls, premium outlets, restaurants, antique and craft shops, and plenty of attractions are a short drive away. If the crowded areas of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge have zapped your energy, relax on the deck of Next Step Heaven, and listen to nature around you.

Many hiking trails are located near the cabin site, as well as what the National Park has to offer. Trout fishing, horse back riding, mountain biking, and white water rafting are other great adventures to seek while staying at the cabin.

**Pet Policy: The owners are committed to offering our cabin to guests traveling with their dog(s). We are volunteer foster parents for rescue dogs and know that they are a member of the family. However, in order to bring your dog, you MUST provide proof of vaccinations, flea/tick medication, etc. Due to insurance coverage restrictions, ALL dogs must be crate trained, and crated when you are not in the cabin. There are NO exceptions to this rule. For more information on the pet policy, please contact Michelle.

About Michelle Salyers

Next Step Heaven is owned by Dennis and Michelle Salyers, of Ironton, Ohio. Dennis owns a large commercial and industrial contracting business in Ohio.

Dennis and Michelle live on a 200+ acre farm, where they raise and breed registered Dexter Cattle (miniature cattle). They also have three horses (two Tennessee Walkers and one Haflinger).

Michelle is a national and regional volunteer for an animal rescue organization, so she and Dennis routinely 'host' foster dogs, and, have a large canine brood of their own.

Dennis and Michelle honeymooned in Gatlinburg, TN in 2007, and fell in love with the amazing mountain views, fresh air, and relaxation of 'cabin life' so they were determined to own a little piece of 'Heaven' one day. That dream came true when they found 'Next Step Heaven' in September of 2012. They took ownership of the Cabin on October 12, 2012.

Since purchasing the cabin, Michelle has updated many features in the cabin, including all new furniture and decor, new stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, and, a brand new hot tub was installed on the lower deck in May 2014. The goal is for our guests to feel comfortable, and to make Next Step Heaven their home away from home.

Michelle Salyers purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Michelle Salyers chose Sevierville

The views are second to none, and the location is superior. It's so close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, yet far enough away that you feel you have truly escaped the hustle and bustle.

What makes this cabin unique

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The best pet friendly cabin we have ever rented. Great furnishings and decorations. The super friendly and helpful owners have put a lot of thought and care into making sure guests have everything they need, even the four-legged guests. Words cannot express how incredible the view and sunset are. We can't wait to stay again!

An escape from reality in the Smoky Mountains

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is exactly as shown in the listing. Upgrades but not fussy! We enjoyed mornings having a coffee on the top deck listening to the birds or the cows in the valley. My son spent a lot of time playing pool and in the hot tub. Satellite tv was great and there were plenty of sets!

We didn't leave the cabin much to avoid the extra traffic in the area to see the solar eclipse but that's why we were there and we were able to view the totality from the top deck.

Sadly the BBQ has been damaged prior to our arrival but when I mentioned it to the owner, she offered to have one rush delivered! We decided to try Boss Hoggs BBQ which was amazing.

A wonderful location, great owners to work with! We will be back - just wish it was closer! :)

Beautiful Views, quiet area, secluded

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious, beautiful, clean cabin. Perfect for our group of six. Porch swing was a favorite as well as the hot tub and pool table. Highly recommend this cabin if you're staying in the Gatlinburg area.

Great cabin with privacy, lots of space and enough bathrooms

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was located on the side of Cove Mountain. The views were amazing, though they were mostly of Wear Valley with other mountains in the back ground. The cabin was spacious and had 4 bathrooms which worked well for our family of teenagers. The porch was great for sitting out in the morning and evening. We used the hot tub every day. There was privacy but you could see the cabins next to you and hear when they were outside. The 5 acres has multiple cabins in the development, but there is space between them all and trees so that you don't feel they are too close.

Best Sunset Ever

  • 5 of 5

Next Step Heaven is an amazing place to stay. It was so peaceful. We watched the rain come in from the open deck. We sat on the deck and watched the sunset and watched God's Masterpiece unfold in front of us. Plenty of room in the cabin. You will truly feel like you are in Heaven. AMAZING. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.

Map

Our cabin is nestled on five acres in Wears Valley, on Cove Mountain. We are close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg (both a short drive away). If you are looking to escape the hustle and bustle of every day life, THIS is the place for you. Our cabin is secluded enough that you feel as if you are all alone, yet all conveniences are just a short drive away.
