Our cabins at Next to Heaven are situated along a beautiful mountainside and are sure to please those guests looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Guests can choose to stay in one of seven cabins at Next to Heaven. Each cabin has 2 BR, 2 BA and a private balcony. Each cabin is nicely appointed with a full kitchen, flat screen TVs, and comfortable seating. Enjoy the community fire pit when staying with a larger group. Take advantage of the Trail Rides and Zip Line Rides on site.
Since Next to Heaven is perfectly located only 4 miles from Townsend and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, guests can enjoy hiking, picnicking, Scenic Motor Tours at Cades Cove in the National Park or Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail located in Gatlinburg, or spend a lazy afternoon floating with the family down the shaded Little River. Pigeon Forge shopping, dining, and attractions is only a 15 to 20 minute drive down scenic Wears Valley. Close enough for convenience but far enough away to enjoy the peaceful side of the Smokies
While our cabins offer some modern conveniences, guests should note that these cabins have been built with the idea of providing a truly Rustic & Peaceful Smoky Mountain vacation experience. These cabins do not include washers and dryers or dishwashers. If there are folks wishing to do a bit of laundry during their visit, there is a washer and dryer at the stables office that is available for guest use. Just stop by and say hi to the friendly staff and maybe sign up to go for a Zipline Tour or Horseback Ride while you're there!
Next to Heaven Cabin Rentals is perfect for family reunions, church retreats or just your immediate family. Visit Next to Heaven for your next family vacation and it will become your next family tradition for years to come.

Thank you for the review. We are glad that you were able to enjoy the solitude of the Smoky Mountains and our cabin during your stay.

Thank you for the review of our property. We are glad to see that you had an enjoyable visit, and we hope that you were able to get some great pictures while visiting Cades Cove! We would like to address the 3 issues that you mentioned and hope to clear up any confusion. 1. We agree that the faucet in the master bath needs a better connection or to be replaced and appreciate your pointing that out. Our team is on it. 2. Had we of known that there were not any sheets or a blanket for the sleeper sofa we would have been straight over. We store extra covers in the chest in the hall. We are sorry for the miscommunication. 3. We are glad that the government reopened as well. The shutdown created unfortunate circumstances for many folks. We would like to state that we feel that our cancellation policies are fair and in no way strict. We offer our guests options, including the option to reschedule their visit when and if they ever need to consider cancelling their reservation. All of the options are clearly outlined in our booking agreement that each guest must sign before booking one of our properties. Thank you again for taking the time to review our property and your experience with us. We do hope that you will come back soon! We encourage you to call or email with any questions or concerns. Sincerely, Summit 54 Properties, iTrip Team
Thank you for sharing your experience with us and other travelers. We see that you had some mixed feelings about your stay and would like to say that we are sorry for that. It is our desire to have our guests 100% satisfied during their stay. We are addressing the problems you have reported with our team. We will be working out a plan to communicate with our guests more effectively about the fireplace as well as other features of the cabin. We are looking into the lighting, which includes brighter bulbs and even more lighting in the cabin. On the flip side we are glad that you were able to take advantage of the horseback riding and the great views from the ridge line there at the ranch. There a many hiking trails and even though the National Parks were closed during the government shutdown, there were some areas accessible for your enjoyment. We do appreciate your feedback and we take everything you have to say to our team for evaluation. It is only with feedback from our guests, whether good or bad that we can continue to grow and improve as a company. Thank you, Summit 54 Properties, iTrip Team
