Get away from it all in this secluded cabin on 5 acres of unspoiled wooded mountains with breathtaking long-range views of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
The 3,000-foot elevation makes you feel like you’re on top of the world! Over 650 square feet of wood deck lets you enjoy the great outdoors and panoramic views even in the misty rain. In the morning, you’ll look down on the clouds - in the evening the brightest stars and moon light up the sky.
Enjoy the warmth of the wood burning stone fireplace, and the relaxing pulse of the hot tub after a day of hiking. Feed your need for adventure, or just curl up with a good book and soak in the quiet.
20 foot cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors and lots of windows. Gated community with over 200 acres of land to hike and enjoy the forest and mountains.
Cabin is centrally located to many activities: Waterfalls, Hiking, Fishing, Whitewater Rafting, Tubing, Mountain Biking, Great Smoky Mountain Railroad/Polar Express, Cherokee Indian Reservation, Harrah's Casino, Nantahala River, Nantahala Outdoor Center, Fontana Lake, Gem Mining, Golf, Kayaking, Horseback Riding and Shopping. Day trips to Asheville (60 miles) and Gatlinburg (30 miles) from Bryson City.
Access: Last mile is a well-maintained gravel road with gradual incline towards to the top of the mountain. There are four uphill curves and four-wheel drive or front-wheel drive recommended but not necessary if you have experience driving uphill.

Joseph and Linda fell in love with the small mountain town of Bryson City and decided to build a home in Black Forest. We enjoy the peace and serenity of our cabin everytime we visit.
Cabin is secluded on a private road in a gated community yet only minutes to Ingles Grocery Store and Downtown Bryson City. Breathtaking panoramic views from anywhere on the deck.
From Guestbook: Thank you very much for a great stay! This is a very pleasant location and a very comfortable home!
We really enjoyed our stay! The views were awesome and the weather was great! The kids enjoyed the polar express and the hot tub! We will certainly go back and explore the other exciting things to do in this area! Great time!
We spent 4 nights at Heaven on Earth in mid October. The views from the deck were truly Heaven on Earth! We began each morning marveling at the "Smokey" Mountains and ended each day watching the sunset surrounded by the beautiful autumn colors. The well maintained home and well equipped kitchen made our visit so relaxing. There is a lot to see in the area during the day. We loved the waterfalls at Deep Creek, the drives through the National Park (with many stops along the way) and the town of Bryson City. We took advantage of the great selection of food at Ingles Grocery Store since we cooked dinner each evening. We really appreciated Linda returning our call so quickly when we couldn't get in the gate on our arrival. (In retrospect I think we should have called Smokey Mt. Getaways first before calling the owner. However, she was very kind and gracious.) Thank you for sharing "Heaven on Earth" with us!
We had an enjoyable stay here over Memorial Day weekend. The view is as good as advertised, although the trade-off is that harrowing, tedious drive up the gravel road. A couple minor things like the shower head, the restrictions on the hot tub, and the speed of the wifi were a bit disappointing, but all in all it's a great launch pad for a beautiful area. Thanks for having us.
My family had an absolute great time at your cabin this week. Felt like we had the whole mountain to ourselves and view was beyond expectations. I would recommend to anyone.
HOME: Beautiful home, very comfortable. Very pretty lit up at night. Private, quiet, washer/dryer on bottom floor. Tastefully decorated. Hot tub was a daily revival, wonderful deck.
VIEW: *Almost* just like the pictures....there are a few trees that have grown and are blocking some view....otherwise, the view is breathtaking.
THE ROAD UP: Go to Cattaloochee Valley first, then you will love the road up to the cabin. We are flatlanders...and it was a daily challenge for us to get up to the cabin, but it is something we accomplished as a family. Once we got to Cattaloochee Valley, we really appreciated the road up to the cabin.
AREA: Perfect! We couldn't ask for a better place to hang out for a week than Bryson City. No crowds, great grocery store, shopping, scenery. It was perfect.
A MESSAGE TO PET TRAVELERS: This cabin is listed as No-Pets. Please have respect for the home owner who has graciously opened their beautiful home to others, so that we can enjoy a little bit of their paradise - don't take your animals there. Please have respect for yourself, and don't lie and sneak your animals into a no-pet zone. Someone who rented the cabin prior to our stay obviously carried their shedding stinking animal into the cabin. Remember that your pets sometimes make other sick. May KARMA be fair and just in your own home in that maybe, just maybe, someone will do something that will be so offensive in your home that you will be appalled and wonder how could someone do such a thing.
Our stay at Heaven on Earth was about as close to heaven as you can get, and still be on earth. Guess the name is perfect! We arrived after 10pm so it was dark when we got to the house, but had good directions and had no trouble finding it. Do not rely on your GPS. It wasn't until the next morning when we woke up and saw our first amazing view of the Smokies.....It was breathtaking! And they only got better at dusk! Monday we ventured into Bryson City to look around, get groceries and get a feel for the town, then we went back to the house to grill outside and hang out on the deck. On Tuesday, we went to Tuckaleechee Caverns in TN, had the most awesome ribs and had a leisurely drive back to NC through the Smokey Mtn National Park. Wednesday we went mountain biking on some of the Tsali trails near Fontana Lake, it was gorgeous, glad we had the hot tub to relax in. Thursday we went horseback riding through the Nantahala Forest, it was so peaceful and my son's first time on a horse, he enjoyed it thoroughly, again we took advantage of the hot tub, it was nice to soak sore muscles. Friday we took a train ride through the Nantahala Gorge on the Smoky Mountain Railroad, it went along the Tuckaseegee River, and across a bridge over Fontana Lake.....The scenery was amazing! We also took a drive to Clingaman's Dome, the highest point on the Appalachian Trail, needless to say we were literally in the clouds, 6,800ft elevation.......I would definitely recommend this house to everyone I know, and in the future we will definitely visit again. Thank you Joe and Linda for sharing a little piece of heaven with us!
