Super clean, quiet, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at the Lullaby Waterfall Cabin. Ms. Iva and Chris are so nice and helpful. The cabin was cozy, extremely clean and had everything we wanted. We stayed three nights and certainly didn't want to leave! We look forward to coming back in warm weather so we can hike and enjoy the creek.

Miss Iva's Garen Of Eden is beautiful. It is everything we were hoping for and more. We had a wonderful stay and plan on going back. The cabin has everything you need, just bring your groceries and move right in. You won't want to leave!!! We really enjoyed the creek, firepit, hammock and deck all surrounded by nature. It is like stepping back in time to a lovely, peaceful place.

The Best Cabin we have ever stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Ms. Iva's Lullabye Falls Cabin. It was the nicest cleanest cabin we have been at and her property is just breautiful. We hated to leave. We stayed December 27, 2012 thru January 3, 2013. It snowed and was just amazing. The sounds of the river was so relaxing. Ms. Iva and her staff are just the nicest people and we are so blessed to have found Garden of Eden Cabins! We will be back again. (we already made reservations). You will not be disappointed.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th year at Miss Iva's cabins and we have stayed in three out of 4 cabins. Our first stay was on our honeymoon and we fell in love with the Garden of Eden and continue to return every year for our anniversary! We have always found our cabins to be very clean and cozy. Miss Iva and her staff have always been VERY hospitible and made our stay VERY enjoyable! We would like to keep the Garden of Eden our little secret, but it is too good of a place not to share. We would recommend the Garden of Eden to anyone that is looking for a clean, quiet, relaxing place to enjoy a vacation or short getaway. Thank you Miss Iva and staff for another enjoyable vacation and we are already looking forward to our stay next year!

Great Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 peaceful nights at this cabin which overlooked a waterfall from the porch (and bedroom). We could hear the roar of the creek constantly. The water was high and foliage just beginning to come out. Across the creek is the Smoky Mtn. National Park which gives the property a secluded feeling. If you love the outdoors you'll love this spot. It is only 1/2 hour from many activities and hiking just 1 mile from the property. It takes me that long to get to work. It was very clean, well-maintained and well equipped. The proprietor and assistant were helpful. We will go back in the future. Since there is a kitchen you might not want to eat out but we found Carver's and Mama's kitchen close by when we didn't want to cook or just wanted something handy. We love the Mountain Lodge for breakfast and The Best Italian for a main meal in Gatlinburg.
