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!

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.

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

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.

Great view!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was great! The loft bedroom and bath upstairs was perfect for our young adult girls and the master bedroom and bath was downstairs. The jacuzzi tub/shower is nice, but deep which makes stepping out a pretty high step down to the ground. Not a deal breaker unless you have mobility issues. There is a walk in shower upstairs. The pictures nailed it. It is located in a cabin neighborhood so you don't feel isolated. The road to the cabin is steep, but manageable. Stay to the left when entering the driveway otherwise your car will drag (I have a small car). It is located out of town, but the slower pace is nice. Great shortcut down the road to get into Gatlinburg without going back into PF. The owners were exceptional to work with. Kendall quickly responded to my emails, and we, too, received our deposit back on our drive back home. You will not be disappointed with this cabin. Have fun!

Week at the cabin

  • 5 of 5
Thank you to Kendall and Leina for sharing your cabin with us (husband, son age 9, daughter age 6 and I) for the week of July 4th. You were very responsive to our needs before and during our stay! The cabin was just as the pictures portrayed in and out! We enjoyed the views, the rocking chairs, the table on the deck and the hot tub. My favorite was sitting in the rocking chair in the morning and evening, taking in the views and only the sounds of nature. I even read a fiction book (The Fault in our Stars) all the way through for the first time in years! Our goal when looking for a cabin was somewhere with views but close enough to drive to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. This cabin was in the perfect location. It took us about 25 min to get to the 2 cities and Sugarlands Visitors Center. Gas stations, a bank, and antique stores were right down the road and IGA for groceries was about 15min away. We did enjoy your recommendation of Hungry Bear BBQ, but didn't get a chance to get to Hillbilly Pancake House. We also ate at Pancake Pantry in Gatlinburg since it was the first pancake house in TN. The food was good but expensive. We also ate at Applewood Farmhouse and thoroughly enjoyed our meal there along with the shopping areas. We visited most of the wineries nearby except Bootleggers and Eagle. We enjoyed horseback riding at Douglas Lakeview Stables, Forbidden Caverns, float raft trip down Lower Pigeon with Rip Roaring Adventures, Aquarium, Guiness World Records Museum, Titanic museum, Dixie Stampede dinner show, Adventure Raceway go karts and indoor skydiving at FlyAway. We hiked the Fighting Creek Nature Trail, Cataract Falls, Clingman's Dome and Laurel Falls. We drove 1/2 way down Newfound Gap Road and took in the sights at the overlooks. We also had a picnic at Metcalf Bottoms and waded into the river. We had a very full 6 days as you can tell and we had plenty of things we didn't even get to do! We'll be sad to leave tomorrow but we'll just have to save those things we didn't get to do for next time! I would recommend this cabin wholeheartedly!

Great Get Away

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a very restful few days overlooking Wear's Valley. Cabin was very clean and nice just like the photos show. Ii was especially nice for me as Col. Samuel Wear for whom the Valley is names is one of my ancestors. I was raised not to far away and a the peaceful view over the Valley was especially meaningful.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was perfect for our family of four! It is clean and nicely laid out. Having two bathrooms and a washer and dryer were definitely appreciated! I came home to only one load of laundry!
The drive up to the cabin was a little steep, but worth the mountain view we wanted!! We used the hot tub almost every night after long days of activities! The kitchen was well stocked, the only thing we needed was more paper towels, but the is a Dollar General and Family Dollar near by for those items!
It is about about 25 minutes to Pigeon Forge and a little farther to Gatlinburg! I would recommend this cabin to everyone, the location, price, and friendliness of owners made for a perfect vacation to the Smokies!! Also, we already got our deposit back and we just checked out yesterday!

relaxation!

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!

Nice cabin in a great location - central yet private

  • 5 of 5
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.
