  • The Perfect Setting For a Weekend Away

    "I cannot write enough positive things about our amazing weekend at Almost Heaven. It was just the perfect setting for our girls getaway weekend--- so beautiful and peaceful. That VIEW! We couldn't get over it. It will take your breath away every time. Annette was SO wonderful in her communication, clear directions, and suggestions of things to see and do in the area. It is an intense (but kind of fun!) drive up the mountain roads to the home, but certainly doable, even though all of us just had front-wheel drive. Definitely recommend trying to get there in daylight if you can -- it's easier to find! But also know that the trek up the mountain is worth it for that view! Also definitely recommend doing your grocery shopping in your hometown or before you get the cabin and packing a cooler --- bring food and just stay put at the cabin. It would be quite a journey to have to "run to the store" for a small thing. We did get to explore Black Mountain for lunch (about 20-25 min drive) and enjoyed that! Also appreciated the suggested to check out Standing Rock Falls within the Gateway Mountain premises; it was lovely! The home was so accommodating and comfortable. We had 8 women staying, and all had a bed spot and plenty of space! We ate every meal and drank coffee/wine out on the amazing back deck. We watched the sunset and watch storms roll by. Once night came, we saw more stars than us city dwellers ever get to see--even some shooting stars! To say we had a great time is kind of an understatement. It was kind of perfect! .My only wish is that we could have stayed longer!!! Trying to see if I can now get my extended family to take a trip up to the mountains next year...might have to use this home again:) A beautiful rental, and one of the best VRBO home's I've ever stayed in. Highly recommend! Thank you to the Morgans for sharing their home!"

  • Beautiful location

    "We just returned from our biannual motorcycle trip to the Smokey Mountains. There were 6 adults and we always try to find a different place to stay. This home is beautiful with a small but nice view of the mountains from a wonderful deck. The entire development was beauty. Everything we needed was the. The only problem was there was no water pressure on the upstairs shower and downstairs bathroom sink. Having grills available to use made it nice to cook and not have to eat out all the time. Would recommend this home"

    "My family and I stayed at this property for a weekend trip back home for my Grandmother's 80th birthday. We were looking for a location that could suit our needs as far as location and amenities and this house had it all! The view from inside the home and the deck looking across the meadow is breath taking! I wish we would've had time to enjoy the board games that are stocked within the home but our event schedule kept us busy. The linens for towels and sheets were top notch and soft! The closet space was UNBELIEVABLE (wish I had packed more clothes just to hang them up). Even though we only ate at the cabin a couple times there were plenty of pots, pans, serving ware etc for our needs. Sharon was very easy to communicate with and was always efficient to respond. We look forward to renting here again!"

  • Great cabin

    "This cabin was all we had hoped for and more. Two very comfortable bedrooms, two common areas, a large bathroom, fantastic kitchen, screened porch and a front porch. My father enjoyed the fire pit even though it was summer. It was nice to have the washer and dryer to use in preparation for the next week of vacation. The air conditioners were good to have when the weather was hot. The river access did not allow us to put in our kayaks but only because the river was low and our kayaks are not plastic. Otherwise, we could have easily put in there. We did take advantage of all the put-in places on Lake James for our kayaks but my favorite was the Hidden Cove boat launch area. The neighborhood dog was so sweet! He checked on us every day and liked everyone. There is a good movie selection in the cabin, games and puzzles. There is a porch swing on the screened porch that was very enjoyable. This is a great cabin, good location with friendly neighbors. We had two cars and plenty of parking."
