Cabin Name: Close to Heaven
A 2-bedroom cabin that sleeps 6 people, Close to Heaven is just a short drive to the attractions of both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. At the same time, it's just far enough off the beaten track that you'll be able to relish the beauty of the woods and mountains in peace and privacy.As soon as you step inside Close to Heaven's great room, you'll feel right at home. Large windows let in plenty of sunshine to accentuate the luster of the wood-planked walls, floor, and cathedral ceiling. Two sofas—one of which opens into a queen-size bed—offer comfortable seats so that everyone can sink back and watch a movie on the flat-screen TV with satellite channels, listen to music on the CD player, or enjoy après-ski drinks by the stone-surround fireplace.The great room encompasses the dining area, which seats 6. Four can gather around the eye-catching log-style table; another 2 can sidle up to the adjacent breakfast bar. And though numerous restaurants are nearby, once you see the gleaming, well-equipped kitchen, you might want to dine in instead. It's always more fun to cook in someone else's kitchen—especially when it's as spacious and open as Close to Heaven's. What's more, there's a park-style charcoal grill outside. If you reel in trout from a nearby stream (or buy steaks for a nearby grocery), it'll taste even better grilled alfresco. After dinner, you might want to head upstairs to the loft's pool table. Even if you don't shoot pool, you'll enjoy relaxing up here, thanks to the bird's-eye view of the treetops and the seemingly endless sky. Or, perhaps you'd rather unwind on Close to Heaven's wraparound deck. Enjoy cocktails at sunset on the Adirondack chairs or, better yet, luxuriate in the deck's hot tub. After a day on the go, its massaging jets of water are so rejuvenating. The singing of birds and the rustling of the breeze in the trees will only heighten the experience. You'll find a 2nd jetted tub in the master bedroom, located on the loft level. As if having a private Jetted Tub steps from your king-size bed weren't pampering enough, the room also has its own fireplace and TV. You might find yourself heading to bed early and staying there late simply for the pleasure of lazing in this haven. The 2nd bedroom, on the main floor, includes a king-size bed and a TV as well. In addition to 2 bedrooms, Close to Heaven has 2 full bathrooms. Having a bathroom for each bedroom is so convenient: You can indulge in a long shower or bath without a line forming on the other side of the door. We'll provide plenty of clean towels for both bathrooms. What's more, you'll arrive to find the beds impeccably made up and extra bedding ready and waiting. And for added convenience, Close to Heaven has its own washer and dryer. Not only can you pack light, but you can even return home with a suitcase full of clean clothes. Given Close to Heaven's semi-secluded setting, you might be surprised by just how close it is to the local attractions.
However you spend your days, you'll love basking in the serenity and comfort of Close to Heaven at night. Book your stay today; we're looking forward to seeing you!

*Road Conditions: Some of our cabins are on steep, narrow, curvy, mountain roads. If you are concerned about road conditions to get to a cabin, please feel free to ask us! None of our cabins require a 4 wheel drive under normal weather conditions.
*Well Water: Most of our cabins are on well water. Well water here in the Smoky Mountains sometimes has a different feel to it and often times a slight sulfur smell and often times has a brown color. Well water is safe to drink and to use for bathing and to cook with. We do have water systems on any cabins that have these issues, but keep in mind, it may smell and feel different than what you are used to. Also, some of our wells take time to recoup themselves after a lot of water has been used. This is a common problem in this area and there are times you may have to use water sparingly or wait for the water pressure to rebuild.
*TV & WiFi: We do have TV's and WiFi in most all of our cabins. There are times when heavy cloud cover, weather systems, mountains, or trees will cause problems with the signals. We always want our guests to have the comforts they want on vacation, but there are times we cannot control this problem.
*Pests & Wildlife: Here in the Smoky Mountains, we have lots of native bugs and wildlife. All of our cabins are treated for pests, but there are times you will find bugs or even have trouble with bugs. Please let us know if they are causing trouble, we will handle it as quickly and efficiently as possible. Please never feed, taunt or approach any wildlife. This is their home and we are the visitors.
