Wears Valley Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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

Closer to Heaven is a one of a kind chalet located within the Hickory Hollow resort community. It is 1,950 ft. in elevation and offers a beautiful tree-framed view of the Smoky Mountains from almost everywhere in the cabin. The view can also be enjoyed from the wrap-around deck which features a covered area and uncovered area. Under the covered area you'll find a couples swing and rocking chairs that can be enjoyed during rain or shine. The uncovered area offers a 4 person hot-tub, BBQ grill and a hand crafted log picnic table.

Closer to Heaven also has a unique reading nook that you won't find in other cabins. It is located off of a small catwalk, accessed from the loft. It nestles up to a wall of floor to ceiling windows for stunning views of the Smokies that you can enjoy while you relax with your favorite book or sip on a cup of coffee. Enjoy a warm fire during winter months next to the stacked stone fireplace.

Hickory Hollow offers a small catch and release pond for all guests to enjoy, and also a picnic area.

Conveniently located immediately off of Wears Valley Rd in the unincorporated township of Wears Valley; enjoy easy access to all attractions the area has to offer. Only 13 miles from Pigeon Forge, 5 miles from the Smoky Mountain National Park entrance, and 17 miles from Gatlinburg. The cabin is not secluded, but is private and has easy access via paved roads. It is far enough away from the hustle and bustle for some peace and quiet, but close enough for quick access to all attractions.

A short 5 minute drive into Wears Valley and guests will find several antique shops, restaurants and farmers markets.

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.

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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at your cabin. We spent as much time out on the deck enjoying the tree top setting as we did in the cabin. Quiet, cozy, not too far to make a run to the store if needed. Exceptionally clean!

We decided on a last minute quiet vacation to the Smokies. We are glad we decided on Wears Valley and not touristy Gatlinberg (which is quaint, beautiful and crowded). We stayed at Closer to Heaven cabin for 4 nights. The description of the cabin by the owner is very accurate on VRBO/Homeaway. Owner Mr.Kendall was very professional/helpful. Transactions before & after were hassle free. Kids enjoyed the clean hot tub after day long hikes. Worth special mention is the reading nook upstairs with beautiful views. One can walk from the pond at the bottom of the road to the cabin which in itself can be a good steep hike. We stayed in many cabins over several years. We can definitely say that stay at this cabin added fond memories to our get away vacation.

My husband and I stayed in this cabin to celebrate his 30th birthday, and to have one last getaway before our baby was born. It was perfect! We even saw a light snowfall both days we were there! Everything was so nice, and we want to go back again next year for a long weekend. I'd love to go in the fall and summer, too!

We just stayed at "Closer to Heaven" for a week! What a magnificent place to stay. It really made our vacation that much better. The view from the cabin is absolutely stunning!! Probably one of the best views in this area. The cabin itself was very cozy, clean, and all around a great place to stay. The cabin was fully stocked with everything we needed, including firewood. The owners were also a pleasure to deal with.

Nice clean cabin with real fireplace (most places has it on gas). Beautifull view from balcony made our breakfasts soo enjoyable. We felt like we are in our own mountain home thanks to it's less commercial, more family kinda look.
