About the property

3 Bed 2 1/2 Bath 2300 sqft Cabin! Near Downtown Gatlinburg And Arts & Craft

Heaven’s Retreat is a luxury 3 bedroom cabin designed for relaxation, romance, and fun. Nestled in the fabulous Arts and Craft Community, it’s just 3 miles from Downtown Gatlinburg, 8 miles from Pigeon Forge, and 2 miles from Rocky Top Sports World. Unlike most cabins in the Arts and Craft community our two deck cabin offers an incredible view of one of the highest peaks in the Smokey’s, Mt. Leconte and a beautiful mountain range.

If you’re tired of renting cabins that require endless zig zagging and perilous climbs up roads to see the Smokey Mountain range you’ll be delighted by the very easy drive to get to Heaven’s Retreat. We apologize in advance if you’ll never want to leave to enjoy the multitude of activities within an easy 15 - 30 minute drive.

A paved driveway leads to Heaven’s Retreat with flat parking for four cars. Greeting you is that old fashioned front porch with the customary rocking chairs and sitting area. Roll your luggage up our wheel chair friendly ramp and step into your vacation experience.

As you enter the cabin you’ll be struck by the grandness of the floor to ceiling gas burning fireplace climbing up our 20 foot soaring ceiling. Peeking through the pine timber railing is a glimpse of the loft game room that’ll have the youngster’s and young at heart dropping their suitcases saying “let the games begin” as they challenge each other to a game of shuffleboard, foosball, or game of darts.

Strategically placed fireplaces throughout the cabin create a draw to slip away into total relaxation. Our focal point in the center of the cabin is a double sided gas fireplace separating the living room and dining room creating a backdrop for mellow conversations in either room. The Great Smokey Mountains are visually appealing during the daytime, but not to be outdone is the Great Smokey Mountain starscape. Enjoy star gazing on our expansive main level deck around the gas fire pit as you recline in one of our six Adirondack chairs. Finally our second double sided fireplace is strategically situated between the opulent master suite and the Sunroom creating the spark for your end of evening activities.

Our 2,300 square foot luxury cabin comfortably accommodates groups of 1 – 6 guests and provides vacation amenities throughout. Whether it’s sinking into the couches in the living room or gathering at the cabin’s inside or outside dining areas all 6 guests will enjoy comfortable seating for each experience.

Each of our 3 bedrooms are beautifully appointed with luxury linens and sufficient pillows important for a good night’s sleep. If you’re traveling with several couples you might have to flip a coin to determine who sleeps in which bedroom, but no one will be a loser. The showcase bedroom is the large master bedroom suite on the main floor accessed through a 36” wide pine door. As you step into this bedroom sanctuary you’re drawn to the dual-sided fireplace situated for our guests to enjoy from their king size bed or adjoining sunroom. The other two bedrooms are upstairs. Each of these bedrooms have a separate vanity to expedite freshening up and are joined together by a Jack and Jill bathroom featuring a private commode and slate tiled soaker tub.

The finest spa facilities have nothing on Heaven’s Retreat sumptuous Master Bathroom. The sliding panel pine door opens revealing a 150 square foot luxury bathroom. Your choices to begin your pampering are: an extra deep 2 person soaker tub, a 2 person sauna, or a two person walk-in shower with separate shower heads and corner seating. When you’re finished relaxing and getting ready for a night on the town, His and Her vanities eliminate having to orchestrate who has to get ready first.

Heaven’s Retreat provides a contemporary space for you to show off your culinary skills. Stainless steel microwave, stove, dishwasher, and granite counters equip the gourmet to create to his or her heart’s content. The stunning dining area seats 6 comfortably. If you’re a grill master we haven’t forgotten you. On the main deck is a Gas Grill waiting to be fired up to prepare your steaks, burgers, and chicken. When the meal is complete enjoy open air covered dining on the outdoor dining table.

If a gourmet meal and the mountain air hasn’t stoked your romantic fire, finish off your evening with a glass of wine in our 6 person hot tub.

For more activities access the sunroom from either the master bedroom or the main deck to play a game of cards or challenge friends to participate in one of the many board games. Views of the mountain and the fireplace make this room a unique fun escape. If outside activities are your thing step out to the driveway and play a rousing game of basketball, corn hole, or ladder ball.

The cabin offers flat panel TV’s in each bedroom with Comcast cable, as well as Wi-Fi for those who need to stay connected.

About Lauren Therrien

Lauren and I (Andre), purchased this cabin in February of 2015. The cabin you see in these photos was completely renovated and decorated over the following few months. From a grand Living Room, to a rustic Luxury Kitchen, to spacious bedrooms and immaculate bathrooms, we've spent several months transforming this AMAZING vacation home into what you see today. Here's a little background on us and how we got here...

We currently reside permanently in Sevierville TN. We met in College at the University of Central Florida, and moved to South Florida where I began to work for the Florida Panthers Hockey Club. My wife Lauren, is the most creative, imaginative, and handy woman I've ever met. We decided a few years ago to begin purchasing beat up homes in South Florida, where Lauren began renovating and transforming them into gorgeous houses. Over the years, this gradually became a full-time occupation for her.

After a few years in the South Florida Market, we decided to tackle some cabin projects in our favorite all-time vacation spot!; Gatlinburg, TN!

We eventually moved to the area in Feb of 2015, and spent the next few months creating "Heaven's Retreat!"

We hope you love what you see and we look forward to welcoming you into our home!!

Why Lauren Therrien chose Gatlinburg

The VIEW, Proximity to Town, Cabin Layout, and ease of access where the biggest reasons why we fell in love with this home. When searching and looking for the best Cabin, we looked at over 30 different options. After some disappointments, we came across this Cabin, and it was everything we can possibly ask for. The VIEW simply took our breathes away!! We knew we had a lot of work to do to transform this cabin into the vacation home of our dreams... We were up for the challenge!

What makes this cabin unique

The Views, the peacefulness and seclusion from both view decks, and the Proximity to Downtown and the Arts & Craft Village make this Cabin like no other in Gatlinburg. And if you're looking for an incredible Master Suite, look no further! This King size room comes with a gas fireplace, a 2-person Sauna, 2-person Shower, and 2-person Soaking Tub.

Everything you will need is right here

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent Thanksgiving at Heavens place. It was wonderful. The house was very clean, warm and inviting, and it has a spectacular view. My family loved every minute of it. The owner was very quick to respond to a few questions at booking. We will definitely be back.

Perfect location with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful cabin! We abosutely loved all of the amenities you provided and it was very clean. It was very relaxing to sit in the hot tub or out by the fire pit. We also took advantage of playing shuffleboard and darts one evening. Lots of fun! The kitchen has everything to prepare meals and the grocery store is close by. The cabin was in a perfect location for everything we wanted to do on our trip. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

Really clean and relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stays at several cabins per year in this area.If your looking for a really clean and relaxing property this is it. Owners have thought of all the little details that make the stay feel like home instead of just a rental unit. Cabin was very very clean, cleanest hot tub I've ever been in. Absolutely loved the fire pit, had a little trouble keeping it lit but enjoyed it. Fully stocked kitchen and good grill. The only problem we had and the reason I put it on here is so the owners will be made aware is the gutters are severely bent on the upper floor deck and during one of the harder rains that came they overflowed and was allowing water to drain onto French doors at the dining area and was leaking into dining room floor pretty bad...gutters just need maintenance. We had a great relaxing week, it rained a lot during the stay but was not a problem because it was a cozy cabin to just relax in. We would absolutely stay here again.

Stunning views and heavenly sheets

  • 5 of 5

The views are incredible and the sheets are like butter! We wished the weather had been a little cooler so we could have enjoyed the fire pit and fire places. We had a wonderful stay with our three kids!

Perfectly peaceful, luxurious and clean cabin. Fittingly named Heaven's Retreat.

  • 5 of 5

I spent 4 hours searching on-line for the perfect cabin to share with my parents from Florida and my brother and his wife from San Jose, CA for a family reunion in Gatlinburg and found it at Heaven's Retreat. If you have ever spent 1 & 1/2 hours commuting 19 miles to work, then you can appreciate what heaven is like at this cabin. We were all thankful for being able to share this wonderful home. Just as pictured, but exceeded all expectations. My family was absolutely in awe of the amazing views and the peaceful setting. We started each morning on the deck watching the sun rise and the clouds move over the mountains while drinking coffee and reading in new rocking chairs (not pictured) around the firepit. And the interior of the cabin was just as impressive. Tastefully decorated, immaculately clean, so much attention to detail by the owners. The kitchen is well stocked, even with the right size of coffee filters (round, not cone shaped like I packed). Plus, there is a second coffee maker with a K-cup option. (Coffee is a must in our family!) And spices and cooking oil in a drawer for that "Oh, no" moment when you remember the one thing you forgot. Brilliant idea to have vanities in both bedrooms upstairs. Plus, designer toiletries are provided. Little touches that make this cabin luxurious and stand out from the others. The beds and living room furniture are very comfortable. So many options to be together as a group or find a private spot to read or write. And the shuffleboard table was great fun for all ages. There is a beautiful back way drive to Dollywood. Easy access to downtown Gatlinburg, but a private setting with easy ample parking and one level flat access into the cabin, which was so great for my parents. We ate dinner at the newly re-built (after last year's fires) Alamo restaurant on the way to the cabin, which was fabulous, so arrived at the cabin after dark. So appreciated the directions Lauren provided (do not rely on your GPS alone) and having our own code access to the cabin, instead of having to stop somewhere for a key. There are instructions provided for everything from the TV remote controls to using the firepit. Lauren is quick to respond when making a reservation, and her care and interest in making your stay at Heaven's Retreat the perfect vacation is evident. My only regret about giving such an excellent review is that it may be harder to find an open spot for us to reserve Heaven's Retreat next time.

Gatlinburg and pigeon forge was wonderful

  • 3 of 5

The house was nice and clean inside and stocked for guests in the kitchen and baths. Beds very comfortable. We had a problem with the fire pit and bedroom fireplace not lighting but was promptly fixed after a call to Lauren. The same went for outlets not working and several balcony safety lighting out. Unfortunately the same problem repeated its self the next day with the bedroom fireplace and fire pit. We just threw are hands up and said forget it. We found a very disturbing site of animal waste on the upper bedroom balconies. This is a no pets allowed but someone had a pet there prior and had their waste droppings on a shingle in the corner. Pretty disgusting. If all these items were correct I would have given heavens retreat a five star rating
