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!

About Kendall and Leina Luelf
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.
Kendall and Leina Luelf purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Kendall and Leina Luelf chose Sevierville
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.
What makes this Cabin unique
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.

Cozy Cute & Clean!
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. We came for my birthday weekend getaway. The cabin was very clean and nice, water pressure was good, and the views were breathtaking. We were unaware that we were going to be witnessing the biggest car show in Pigeon Forge! Traffic was horrible, but that did not stop us from having fun! We saw a mama bear and 3 baby cubs in Cades Cove, ate at The Local Goat which I highly recommend, and ate breakfast at the Old Mill. We had a relaxing vacation! Thanks again for being so prompt with instructions and such wonderful host! We will be back!
Kristen & Ryan - Mississippi couple
Our family very much enjoyed this cabin! We will definitely return! We have stayed in many cabins in the area, and this one was a little further out than others we have stayed in. Well worth the extra few miles! Quieter, views were phenomenal, and cabin was very nice! Cades Cove was a great experience, teenagers loved the alpine coasters and hiking to Charlie’s Bunion in the Park. We also visited Foxfire Mtn with their 475ft above ground zip line for the thrill seekers in my family. Even if you don’t do zip line, that place is awesome!! Thank you for sharing your mountain home with us.
Great hilltop views
I stayed at the cabin with my mom and sister for 3 nights in late April, 2018. We had a wonderful time! The house was a great size for 3 people, and we very much enjoyed the hot tub. It was also a short drive into town and into the national park. The road leading to the house is windy and steep in places, but totally do-able! Would stay here again.
Great little cabin!
Great little cabin and the perfect home base for a few days visiting the Great Smoky Mountains. We enjoyed a long hike in the park, and even had the availability to watch every single game of the opening rounds of the NCAA tournament on the satellite coverage in our living room. Great views for coffee every morning, too!
Everything was good EXCEPT the master shower......NO PRESSURE WHAT SO EVER!!!!!!
It was good EXCEPT NO WATER PRESSURE IN THE MASTER SHOWER 😥
We're very disappointed to hear that you did not have a 5 star stay in our cabin. We pride ourselves on offering the best vacation possible and that starts with keeping the cabin in the best shape possible. We do our very best to ensure everything is great upon your arrival but sometimes issues do occur. We never received any text, email, or phone call regarding the water pressure issue which is frustrating to us because it obviously affected your stay enough for you to leave a 2 star review...even after mentioning everything else was good. IF there is an issue upon check-in, PLEASE just let us know immediately so we can resolve the issue. We are very quick to respond to issues and have great contacts for resolving pretty much anything that could arise. We have fixed the issue which turned out to be an internally calcified shower head. Thanks for taking the time to read this response and we hope future guests understand that we do prioritize customer service, we just ask that you please make us aware of any issue that can negatively effect your stay.
Closer to heaven was the perfect 10 year retreat for my husband and I. We loved the views and could not ask for better owners! Kendall and Leina were helpful our entire trip. We can not wait to come back to closer to heaven!
You can also enjoy zip lines and canopy tours, seasonal hay rides, and various local festivals throughout the year. Closer to Heaven is within the Hickory Hollow resort area, which has a small catch and release pond available to all guests. The property is conveniently located off of Wears Valley Rd, which is directly between Pigeon Forge and the entrance to the Smoky Mountain National Park.
