When my wife and I built this second home, we decided that we wanted a mountain top, long range, sunrise view. We wanted to see billions of stars at night, a crystal clear view of the moon, the rolling ridges of Fall's colors below, the explosive painting every morning as God can only paint His sunrises. We got it all, and more! Now, we share it all with you!
Larry Ward purchased this house in 2007
Go back and read the last paragraph. But, if I were looking for a rental for myself, my family or my best friends, I would want a place that is impressive, exciting to walk into, totally equipped for a high-end retreat; one with great beds, big, fluffy towels, a kitchen with upgraded appliances, utensils, abundant dinnerware and set up for fun, relaxation and romance.... So what is your question?
Heaven's Peak was our way of aquiring our little piece of Heaven on earth when we wanted to retreat from it all, totally relax, hear the wind and birds. We wanted to have a luxurious, rustic mountain top home to share with our families, great friends, new ones, clients and sometimes just oursleves! It was built and furnished with all the love and attention to detail we could muster. One year later my love, my soul mate, my all, was taken from all of us in an auto accident. Now, when you mill around Heaven's Peak, you will feel the love and warmth she planted in our 'peak' into Heaven!
Heavens peak is a great place to get away from all the city craziness and relax. It is very quiet and relaxing. Most of the times you only hear bird sounds and nothing else. Occasionally you may hear neighbors’ dog barking in distance (it does have a pretty good distance from its neighbors). It is located in a gated community which gives you an extra piece of mind. You are in the wilderness and yet you are protected to some degrees. The outlook is wonderful. You can spend hours gazing to the horizon and enjoying the scenery. The house was very clean and neat. It had nice beds, clean sheets, clean towels and clean bathrooms. The house decoration is what you expect from a welcoming cabin in south. Recliners and coaches were super comfy and awesome. The same goes for patio furniture. It has a gas grill which makes the life easier, a fire pit, and a hot tub. In short, the house is built, equipped and decorated to make it a prefect mountain vacation place.
Aside from the house, Larry (the owner) is a very pleasant person to deal with. He is very quick in returning to your texts (or calls I assume, we only texted but I bet he is even friendlier over the phone). He is very supportive and makes sure you have what you need. In fact he makes you feel welcomed in the cabin right when he sends you the driving directions and cabin instructions. I am glad that I got to know him.
Our family is located across the US and this was a perfect place for all of us to get together. The views from the back deck are absolutely wonderful. The cabin has lots of space and has that rustic woods feel. We had a great time and enjoy the fire pit every night. Larry does an outstanding job and really spends quality time making sure you now everything about the property. Thanks Larry for sharing such a wonderful place.
What a great time had by all in your beautiful cabin up on the mountain. It was so relaxing to sit on the deck and look out over the beautiful view as we drank our morning coffee and listened to the sounds of the morning birds and other animals in the distance. My mother came with us and said she could stay there forever. Thank you for letting us stay and for making us feel right at home there. You were very kind and had such a caring attitude and we appreciated that so much. Not everywhere do you find that!! Nathan and Linda
We had a group of 8 and we were very comfortable. One of our youth said on the drive up that Heavens Peak was at Heavens feet! That was the perfect description! It is truly a beautiful home and Larry made us feel welcome and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed! I would definitely recommend Heavens Peak to friends and relatives. Thank you Larry for sharing your home and its special history with us! :)
Thank you for sharing your home. That is exactly how you feel from the minute you arrive, you're home. It was perfect for our family get together because of having the three bedrooms on three different levels. It gave all of us our own space when we wanted. We are already planning for next year.
The first thing that hits you when you walk into the “cabin” is that you’re home. The next thing is the fantastic vista you see through the huge windows – AWESOME!
We had a sibling reunion the first weekend of May, and Heaven’s Peak was the perfect spot. There was ample room for everyone, and the cabin had everything we needed, from beer koozies to a crock pot, from bathrobes to fluffy towels. It was also spic and span clean, which was a big plus!
Enough can’t be said for the view. There are two outside decks from which you can sit and see for miles. One morning my sister and her husband sat in the hot tub and watched the sun come up. She said it was magical!
Larry was more than helpful, and answered any questions we had about the area and the cabin. He was very easy to deal with. He also made sure there was plenty of firewood for the outside fire pit, and also corn for feeding up the deer and other wildlife. We’re sorry to say we didn’t see any, but I blame that on us. I’m sure we were far too noisy!
If anybody is looking for the perfect place for relaxation and connecting with family or friends, this is definitely the spot!
