Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths. Great Views Of The Smoky's. Secluded and Private

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 Tennessee

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I cant believe our vacation has already come to an end! WE spent our first night in a different cabin on this road. We went for a walk and saw this cabin. The first thing in the morning we went to the office to see if we could switch. We are SO happy they said yes! What a view! I will never tire of looking at the beauty of the Smokies. M husband and I first came here 10 years ago and I have wanted to share this with my sons every since. We hiked Laurel Falls, Abrahm's Falls, Rainbow Falls, and Grotto Falls. They were amazing! We saw a few bear at Cade's Cove, went Whitewater rafting, tubing in the creek-what a great time we had enjoying Gods gift of natures beauty! School starts in a few weeks...what a wonderful way to end our summer together.

Beautiful View! Clean Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression was " How do we get back out of this driveway?" It is a little tight and on a blind hill. You pull in and trust you are still on the driveway. You back out and hope no one is coming down the hill or around the turn heading up. Once you get past that and enter the cabin it is a breath taking view from the living room. The loft is very cute with a great view. You can stand on the back deck and see for miles across the mountains. The cabin was very clean! The bedroom and bath was perfect. I gave it five stars because if you want to stay in a cabin with a beautiful view like this, you must travel up steep inclines and driveways. It was worth it!!!

Nice views!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is located in a 'cabin rental' community, but was very private. Very nice views of the mountains from the deck. The driveway is a little tricky, but once you get used to it, you shouldn't have any issues.

Owner's Response: Your hit the nail on the head regarding the community! Although it is technically a community, it is very private and the cabins are far enough apart that privacy is easily had. The views are icing on the cake! Thanks for the great comments and we hope to have you back!

Quiet relaxing amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet and relaxing stay. Just far enough away from the craziness of the tourist attractions but close enough to them all with a short drive. We had a great time with our 7 month old daughter.

Owner's Response: Location Location Location! This is one of the main reasons we decided to get this cabin. It feels like you're tucked away into the mountains and it so hard to believe that a busy city like Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are so close. We're happy to hear that your family enjoyed your stay and hope to have you back for another in the future!

A breathtaking view, excellent accommodations and easy access to the Smoky's!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I decided to visit the Great Smoky Mountains. We investigated many websites and countless properties. We feel that we lucked out, the accommodations were accurately described and the photos equally beautiful. When we arrived the cabin was in great condition and as we walked out on the deck the view was magnificent! The contrast from the snow still on some of the mountains, the blue sky and the greenery was a photo waiting to be taken. Thank you Kendal and Leina for providing a home away from home.

Sincerely,

Mark
