“Stairway to Heaven” is a spacious, yet cozy, 1300 sq foot deluxe one bedroom, 2 bath cabin offering the comfort of a large King bed, a stunning, panoramic mountain view, and a gourmet kitchen loaded with all the amenities you can want. Complimentary gourmet coffee and a selection of teas greet you as you arrive and the hot tub should be all ready for relaxing in the evening. If you bring the kids, there is a Queen Murphy pull down bed upstairs in the living area - it's easy to use and comfortable.
You will enjoy watching your favorite movies on either of two large, flat screen TVs - one in the master bedroom downstairs and the other in the living room above the fireplace. Dish Network is provided with 160 channels! Plus, we have a full library of DVDs for you. Downstairs serves as both a master bedroom and a fun, game area with a pool table, fooseball table and X-Box video gaming system. We've added a futon couch for extra seating and an extra sleeping place.
On the lower balcony, just outside the spacious master bedroom is a cedar swing - perfect for cuddling to watch the sunset over the mountains. In the morning, treat yourself and your someone special to complimentary gourmet coffee in the espresso machine. Relax on our comfortable outdoor furniture on the balcony to start your day - you won't want to leave! Every item in our cabin home is upscale from the leather furnishings and cedar glider in the living room to the detailed rustic decorations – there is even a rocking chair for a child! The cabin is truly a delightful romantic getaway! A private drive leads down to the cabin that overlooks the valley; for those who have more than one vehicle, there is plenty of parking available.
The location of our cabin in Wears Valley could not be better; we are located at the end of a cul de sac on four acres. This means there is one cabin to the left of us that you can't see when inside the cabin or on the balconies and no cabins to the right or below. This gives our cabin the privacy you want without being isolated. We have resident wildlife - three turkeys, a ground hog, rabbits, and an almost white skunk have been seen meandering through the front yard, so keep your eyes open.
The location in Wears Valley is convenient to everything in the area. Located in the gated Dogwood area, just five miles from the heart of Pigeon Forge, you have easy access from the cabin to all the fun of Dollywood, outlet shopping, music shows and sightseeing in the quaint village of Gatlinburg. Wears Valley has an entry directly into the Smoky Mountain National Park by the Visitor’s Center which is about 2 miles from the cabin, so you can enjoy the beauty and seclusion of mountain trails and famous Cades Cove without any town traffic. Townsend is just 10 minutes from the cabin and offers river tubing, horseback riding, cave exploration and the famous Foothills Parkway access. We are centrally located to all of these!
Many have asked about the fires over Thanksgiving. Wears Valley had an unrelated fire due to a transformer at the same time as Gatlinburg. Stairway was not affected or our views or trees, etc. Several neighbors to the left of us lost their cabins and two are rebuilding February-May 2017. Our property is situated down a hill so guests will see little activity from the cabin.

About June Barbas
We have loved the Smokies for years and for the last five we regularly came to Wears Valley. We found this cabin tucked away among tall trees with a view that seems to go forever and knew this was our perfect family getaway and the fulfillment of a dream to have our own place here. With the hectic pace of life, it can be difficult to just leave work behind and go enjoy a place like the Smokies. Having the cabin makes us look forward to when we can get away. The cabin is almost new so the few additions we've made are things we like to have on vacation. Since we like to cook and grill out, the kitchen was designed to have all the conveniences of home and more. I love swings so we added our cedar one downstairs to enjoy the sunset and a cedar glider in the living room to rock inside. And there is nothing better than getting in a hot tub at night that overlooks the valley and stars. I think one of the things we enjoy the most about having this cabin is having others really love it, too. Maybe it's our southern hospitality background that makes me thrilled to have someone say what a great time they had getting away from it all. I feel the same way when we get to go! We hope you will love the time at the cabin as much as we do.
June Barbas purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why June Barbas chose Sevierville
Wears Valley is THE perfect location for the Smokies. The reason? You avoid the terrible traffic of the main road through Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and travel the back roads to those places. And the best part is they are still close by! Plus, you get your own entrance in the the National Park that curves around to the Visitor's Center or go to Townsend and have an easy way to Cades Cove. In a word, it is centrally located to everything you want to do in the area. Our cabin has a paved road up the mountain and it is an easy road, not one of those that makes you feel seasick. For all these reasons, the cabin location could not be better.
What makes this Cabin unique
What I love about this cabin first and foremost is the view off the balconies and the outdoor furniture that lets you enjoy it for hours. My motto is if you are going to be in the mountains, you should see them! Our view is one that really is special with rolling hills in the front and ranges of mountains in the distance - beautiful sunset colors, too. 2. I love our king bed - it is more comfortable than my bed at home! 3. I love that we are not on top of other cabins. There is land around us! 4. I love that the cabin is new and decorated to the nines. 5. I love the kitchen. I am missing nothing by being away from home; I've added all the extras for cooking in and having a great meal together by candlelight. I just want to relax when I'm there and I find I can easily do that. 6. I love the location - we are close to everything without being caught in mounds of traffic to get somewhere. Wears Valley is the 'back door' way to get to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Cades Cove and Townsend. There simply is not a better location in this area.

A GREAT place & GREAT hosts!
Stairway to Heaven is great! The only reason I did not give it five stars is because the long weekend my wife and I stayed there was cold and rainy and the fireplace did not work. The fact that the weather kept us indoors, made this a bigger deal to us. I called Rick and the problem had happened shortly before we arrived and couldn't be fixed in time for our stay. But I can attest from our experience that Rick and June will do everything they can to make sure your stay is a good one. The cabin is lovely and Rick and June are too.
Great vacation choice!
Stairway to Heaven is a great rental property. The drive up to the cabin is paved. Great parking area. The cabin is nicely laid out and well decorated. Great amenities. We used the hot tub every night and enjoyed the view and fresh air. The owner was very responsive and great to deal with. The pool-table was a big hit! The cabin was in a great location and was close everything, easy to get to stores, museums, GSMNP and other tourist destinations. We would stay again.
Absolutely perfect!! We didn't want to leave!!
Stairway to Heaven was every bit of Heaven. From the second we walked in we felt at home. The tree lights and music were so warm and inviting. The cabin location is perfectly placed within minutes from all tourist locations. The property was very clean and well kept. The view is gorgeous and the hot tub was great to relax in after a long day. Lots of personal touches. We usually like to try new places but we will definitely be back at Stairway in the future!!! It was the perfect getaway for our little family. Thank you!!
Great cabin. We can't wait to go back!
Very quiet and peaceful! Close to plenty of Geary hiking trails
Everything we wanted
The cabin was great, clean and well stocked, the new hot tub was amazing. The construction got a little annoying early in the morning but you didn't notice it once you got up and stirred around some. The cabin is equipped with everything you need. Rick and June are a pleasure to work with.
A most wonderful vacation!
This cabin is tops! We keep coming here and hope to again - everything is as it is advertised. Furnishings are well maintained, very clean, kitchen fully equipped with everything you need. Views are spectacular, even with the leaves off. Very quiet and peaceful - slept like babies. Lots to do and see in the area - we hiked 50 miles to various places. We hate leaving but real life awaits, as always. Thank you, June and Rick, for letting us come for Thanksgiving.
