About Glenn and Vickie Hill

We are Glenn and Vickie Hill and have been the original owners of Bearway To Heaven since 2003. We have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. We have 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.

Glenn and Vickie Hill purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Glenn and Vickie Hill chose East

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you again Glenn and Vickie for sharing your wonderful cabin with us again. Our second time was just as wonderful and the first! We can't wait to come back for a third visit.

Beautiful location, secluded, bears, clean and accommodating cabin, what else can you want!

  • 5 of 5

Bearway to Heaven is a great place to stay if you are visiting the Gatlinburg area. The location is close to Gatlinburg, but you are still in the mountains. We saw bears the last two days we were there, and I know they were around the other days, we just didn't see them. A mom with 3 cubs. Except for the mother trying to get into my car, it was a very special treat to see the mom and 3 cubs up so close.

As far as the cabin, it has everything pretty much that you need. We didn't watch TV, or play any of the media, we were too busy hiking and visiting the town. The hot tub was like a dream after hiking one day 12 miles up and down Mount LeConte. And just so you know, the sleeper couch in the living room, which was my bed and I was dreading a sleeper couch, was actually the best sleeper couch I have ever slept on (not that I have slept on a lot of sleeper couches in my days!). I didn't have no bar in by mid-section like a normal sleeper couch. I am 6 feet 1 inch, and weigh about 190#'s, and it was just fine for just me. Don't know how it would be with two adults, but for one adult, it was just perfect.

We might make this an annual trip, and if we do, we will probably just come back here again. Vickie and Glenn answered every question we had, and made sure everything was good the first night by calling my cell phone and asking, which is very good customer service. Thanks again for letting us get in 30 minutes early, that saved our groceries from spoiling in the car!

The bears have been visitors this summer and seem to make it about every four days or so. We love to hear that your experience makes you want to return and we look forward to being a part of your next Smoky Mountain vacation. Sincerely, Glenn and Vickie

Our favorite vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many hotels and cabins in our 34 years of marriage but this is our very favorite! Vickie and Glenn are great owners who make sure their cabin is spotless and comfortable. The location is perfect and we love the screened in porch! We have had many animal visitors like Bears, turkeys, opossums.. We are photographers and enjoy all of the birds in the area: pileated woodpeckers, Owls, cardinals, blue jays, and many small song birds like chickadees , wrens. We did have a close encounter with a fairly large bear this trip but we are careful and know what to do-Greg did get some great photos! Although the Roaring Fork area has a lot of devastation from the wildfires, we enjoyed hearing the sounds of rebuilding. The cabin is such a home of relaxation and comfort for us. We can't wait to return. Thanks you Glenn and Vickie for another great stay!

Perfect Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We always have a great stay in this cabin! Our home away from home! The cabin is always clean, very comfortable, and nicely decorated. We love that the cabin is so close to Gatlinburg but you feel secluded and private. We love that we can cook meals in the great kitchen and just relax on the screened porch and hot tub! This was our first visit since the wildfires and the devastation is heartbreaking. Bearway to Heaven however, only had to replace their front deck and is still secluded and beautiful. We encourage anyone who loves the Smokies to visit and this is the perfect cabin !!

Great Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this cabin, very peaceful & quiet. Located near the top and last cabin on the dead end road. Plenty of (level) parking. Something we like, level parking. Roads going up to this cabin are not scary and easy to navigate. Nicely secluded cabin inside city limits, something rare for Gatlinburg area. One would think they are miles & miles away from everything, but you are not, just minutes to hwy. 321, grocery store, downtown Gatlinburg, etc. Only 1 other cabin could be partially seen from this cabin. The views at the cabin are better than what pics show. Everything in the cabin worked great. Cabin was clean when we arrived. We would rent it again.

Bearway to Heaven- wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable cabin with all the features you could wish for. Quiet and somewhat secluded, but minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains as well. Wonderful freindly owners who ensured our stay was satisfactory. Definitely appreciated the kitchen and all the pots and pans included to eat in and relax rather than going our for every meal. Could be a quiet peaceful cabin or can use the hot tub and cable tv. Something for everyone. Wouldn't hesitate to book again if we are ever back in the area.
