Our two King bedroom hideaway in the mountains has the best of all worlds – it's private with stunning panoramic views of the mountains without ANY obstructions or other cabins close by and only 1.5 miles off the main 331 Hwy of Wears Valley. You are ten minutes to Pigeon Forge OR the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The roads are two lane up the mountain - easy for traveling!

Heavenly Haven has the additional space for another couple or children to join you on your vacation and cozy enough for it to be romantic for a couple. When you walk in, you have the main floor of the cabin with large windows to the ceiling to see the mountains that are right outside and overhead, a fun catwalk leads to another, smaller balcony with a stunning view, and a loft is tucked away on the other side that sleeps two more in a King bed surrounded by unique wall carvings.

The kitchen has been remodeled this year with a new stove and refrigerator and cabinets. We stock it with all the gadgets you would need to cook or grill. Lots of extras at Heavenly - a year round Christmas tree is decorated for different seasons, unique wood carvings throughout the cabin add an extra surprising touch, a picnic basket, hiking sticks and portable chairs to take with you on special outings - all this comes with your stay.

The downstairs game room area is comfortable and a great place to visit with friends or watch a movie from our 100+ DVD library. Kids have their own Xbox 360 system with a library of games to play, fooseball coffee table, board games and a Karaoke machine for extra fun. Walk outside on the second balcony to relax in our lounge chairs and read a book - - we have plenty at the cabin to choose from!. A new bistro table seats four for enjoying a meal outside on the lower balcony.

The cabin has three covered porches and all look out over one of the best views you will find in Wears Valley. We have decorated the balconies for comfort – you will want to spend a lot of time outside enjoying the view at all times of the day and even comfortable enough to nap on the porch! The balconies are roomy and private. A hot tub is on the main balcony tucked just out of site but open to the view – perfect for relaxing after a busy day in the privacy of the mountains.

Two spiral staircases inside give you access to the loft bedroom and the downstairs area and traditional stairs are located from the porch to the lower level as well.

About June Barbas

Rick and I love the We travel as much as we can and our children (all 8!!) love adventure as well. We believe in vacation trips to bond a family together and create wonderful memories so owning a vacation cabins was a perfect fit for us. We have created an experience in both cabins that we believe enhances the memories for our guests. It seems to be working and we couldn't be happier with the result.

June Barbas purchased this cabin in 2012

Why June Barbas chose Tennessee

This is our second cabin in Wears Valley (our other is Stairway to Heaven, vrbo 300037) and we fell in love with it. Really. We looked long and hard to find one that matched what we love about Stairway to Heaven, our first cabin. Heavenly Haven has the welcoming, cozy presence we wanted and the best view I have ever seen in Wears Valley. Absolutely stunning. We wanted the cabin to be upscale yet rustic mixed with the mountain world in which it resides but with modern touches throughout. I think we have achieved this and hope you find it as charming and comfortable as we imagined it to be.

What makes this cabin unique

Easy roads (2 lane the whole way) to get to the fantastic view from all three balconies! A garden tub in the master bedroom that is very roomy - love having all beds King size and we have duvets on every bed. The catwalk is unusual and draws you upstairs to the loft area and third balcony. The game room downstairs is open to the view - not a 'dungeon' like many can be. It is airy, light and very inviting. I think this is unusual so you truly have two master bedrooms with beautiful sitting areas for both.

Of course, location is important - we are ten minutes to the heart of Pigeon Forge and the same to the Smoky Mountain National Park. Wears Valley is not congested with traffic - you are in a central location to the triangle of activities - Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Townsend and Cades Cove area.

This was our first trip to Tennessee and the Smoky Mountain area. We traveled down from NY for the eclipse (viewed totality an hour south of Wears Valley--amazing!).

While looking for a vacation rental, we were overwhelmed by so many choices but I knew I wanted to be 'on a mountain' with amazing views and have a great relaxing space for our 4 teens and us parents. Rick and June's "Heavenly Haven" was just that! I am so glad I was videoing the kids as we entered the home~~They were thrilled---running through the home with such excitement :)

The space was used so perfectly---plenty of room yet it felt so homey! The first thing I noticed was how absolutely clean it was! No dust or "ickiness" in this home! Lovely decor, very comfortable beds and furniture, beautiful woodwork & fireplace. I appreciated the carpeted living room---made it feel cozy. The loft was an awesome space and we enjoyed the pool table and foosball table as well as the hot tub each day and night! A great choice of movies and books as well! Three balconies with breathtaking views!

We cooked most meals here rather than eating out and the kitchen was well stocked with plenty of (and high quality) cookware and plates, glasses etc.

The high point----those VIEWS! This is exactly what I wanted and Heavenly Haven did not disappoint! We were blessed to see our teenagers taking in the views and enjoying the peace & quite. In fact, there was no noise at all! We weren't even aware there were neighbors nearby...we never heard anyone come or go nor can you see a hint of any other cabins. There are plenty of trees around (I hope they don't grow too large and block the view in the years to come!)

The next best perk was the proximity to Great Smoky Mtn Nat'l Park. It was a quick drive...about 7 minutes and on back roads so we didn't have to drive through Gatlinburg to get there!

We had the thrill of watching a black bear come out of the woods and wander through the back yard!

Rick was quick to answer a couple of questions my husband had. He was very helpful & friendly.

I'm not sure when we'll be back.....a 14-hour drive from home and kids getting older and off to college but we'd love to visit this or another home of Rick and June in the future.

We are so grateful to have created wonderful memories in this special place!

Thank you so much, Rick & June! God bless you both for your hospitality!

Beautiful panoramic view of wears valley! Comfortable cabin with most everything you need in amenities. Driveway is a little tricky especially with a big truck. Pretty steep ! I will definitely return if I can. Love Tennessee!

Didn't stay long enough!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The cabin was nice, cozy, and ready for us when we arrived. It is located far enough away from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg to be peaceful, but close enough to be able to enjoy it as well. June and Rick were available to answer questions and helped us discover some places we would have missed otherwise. Thank you!

Privacy and amazing view

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Heavenly Haven. The house was clean and supplied with everything we needed. The privacy and the view really can't be beat! I was nervous booking with VRBO, as opposed to a rental company, because I've always gone through an agent, but our experience was positive and I had nothing to worry about. We will definitely stay here next time. I did have to call the owner for help a couple of times and he was nice, friendly, and completely understanding. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because there were several broken and loose spindles on the deck railing. If a curious child finds this and a parent might not notice, tragedy could occur; but I only deducted 1 star because I notified the owner and he said he was unaware of the issue and assured me he would have it taken care of.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Sara! Your call was a huge help to us and the spindles were removed and new ones added. We try to catch everything through our cleaning service and our visits but for things that get missed, we rely on feedback from our guests so it was greatly appreciated, particularly this item that needed addressing. We love our home and want others to enjoy it as much as we do!

An overall great mountain home

  • 4 of 5

My family had a wonderful visit to the Smokey Mountains while staying at Heavenly Haven. The house is great overall, but there were a few little things that kept me from giving it 5 stars -- such as issues with a couple of the TVs (maybe the HDMI cables just need to be swapped out?), the microphone on the karaoke machine (which my daughter was excited to try) not working, the closet in the master bedroom being broken, the shower in the master bathroom being super tiny, etc.

I don't want to dwell on the negative, though, as the place was great overall. The views really are spectacular, and the home was clean and very well appointed (we loved playing pool and foosball and hanging out in the hot tub) for the price we paid.

One other note, the trade-off for the awesome views is the twisty drive up and down the mountain to get to the house, which is a little out of the way being located about half way between Townsend and Pigeon Forge. It was worth it to us, but is just something to consider as it does mean you will likely be driving 20-30 minutes, minimum, to get to any of the activities you might have planned in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review.! We appreciate the feedback and were not aware of the items on your list. We do ask all guests to let us know if anything is not right during their stay so we can correct it. Many things are fast fixes and make the experience much better. Respectfully, we cannot correct what we don't know about. We are located on Hatcher Mountain so the travel time to the Kroger on Wears Valley at the Pigeon Forge parkway is 17 minutes. To get to the national park through Lyons Spring Rd., it is 10-15 min and the start of Gatlinburg is right off of Little Cove Rd. Townsend is 10-15 min from us. So, Wears Valley and our property is centrally located to everything yet away from the traffic. This is why Wears Valley is a premiere location for travelers. Our road is paved and wide and winding, which is typical in mountain travel. However, it is also a low to moderate incline, 1.5 miles to our cabin so we consider it an easy ride once you do it the first time to get used to the curves. In fact, it was one of the reasons we picked this property since mountain roads can scare me! :) We have 2 bathrooms and the master bath on the main floor has a shower, not a tub (tub/shower combo is downstairs). It is the size of a shower from the early 2000's and room for one. It has a removable shower head for those who have a disability or prefer that option. It is not one of the large, walk in showers we see now. Overall, the main floor bathroom is smaller and for those who feel that is important in a stay, you will want to consider other places. The downstairs bathroom is standard with the tub/shower combination. Our views are really some of the best in the area - that is what caught my attention when we were looking for a cabin with a view. We also love the loft area where you can see the lights on the mountains from the bed. It is a lovely experience for multiple reasons - I do appreciate feedback from our guests that helps us keep up with the items that need to be addressed in normal wear and tear. Most are simple to correct and gives us the opportunity to be responsive to our guests needs. We want the time at one of our cabins to be memorable and one you absolutely love!
