Description from owner

"Bearly Below Heaven" is a private family home on top of mountain with awesome views! Relax in our 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home with a large pool table in loft looking over living room below and an outside hot tub. We have 5 decks to enjoy the views from three different levels. Enter home on middle level and you find living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom and bath (complete with jacuzzi tub). Master bedroom opens to deck. Top floor has two bedrooms, full bath, game room with pool table an sitting area - lots of spaces to hang out. One bedroom on 3rd floor has private deck with best views of all! Lower floor has large bedroom with two twin beds, futon couch and full bathroom. This room opens to deck with outside hottub. There is one covered porch area and other decks are open.

We are at the end of a dead end road on top of the mountain. Our views are unbelieveable! Nothing is behind us but woods to the national park so sometimes we see lots of animals. We are on over one acre of land so we are not a part of a "cabin community". We are away from noises and hustle and bustle but within a 10-20 drive from Cade's Cove, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, Townsend and Wears Valley.

Perfect location!

About the area

Bearly Below Heaven is at the top of dead end road on top of mountain with great views. We bought the land and built house to take advantage of views! There is nothing behind our home except woods to the national park. We do get visits from wildlife - sometimes bears too. Some of our guests have watch bears play on the land below the cabin. We have at least one acre of land so it is very private. The road and driveway are all paved. It is steep but very driveable. We are a 10-20 drive to everything - Wears Valley, Pigeon Forge, Cades Cove, Gatlinburg - they are all easily driveable and there is little traffic where we are located. We are off Little Cove Road between Wears Valley and Pigeon Forge but closer to Wears Valley. We are about 15 minutes from the back entrance to the park in Wears Valley.

“Renting the view”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2016

The views are spectacular. The place itself could a few updates. One of the beds is very squeaky and the tvs are a little small. Hot tub was great and the kitchen has every thing you need. Owners were great to feel with.

“Great Cabin”

Reviewed 16 Mar 2016

This place was great. Unbelievable view. Cabin was very clean. Also very large perfect for a large family or group. One of the best bargains in the Smokeys.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your review - I am so happy you enjoyed our home as much as we do! Please plan to return. Malicia Wilson

We spent winter break at the cabin with friends and family. We had so much fun, played pool and other games, worshiping and praying. . The cabin it is very nice and spacious. The view is beautiful!!! There are many things to do in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We didn't see any bears, just a raccoon came by to visit us. We would define go back! Thank you

“Wonderful cabin, excellent location -- Perfect!!”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2015

Just what we were looking for -- Excellent accommodations! - could not have asked for anything better for our group of 7 coming to the Smoky Mountains for my mother-in-law's 90th birthday; she wanted to see beautiful fall leaves as she lives in Florida. The cabin is super clean with lots of room and attractively decorated with it's bear theme; the furniture and kitchen ware are very nice quality. Morning and evening the rockers and chairs on the deck overlooking the mountain area around and below us were put to good use, and if you get a little chilly there is a chest next to the fireplace which hold quilts to wrap up in. Morning coffee never tasted to good!! We also used and enjoyed the hot tub and the pool table nightly! The location is awesome at the top of the mountain area between Wears Valley and Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge - approx. 20 minutes to each away from the crowds of people but easy access to the areas; went through Wears Valley to tour Cades Cove, Gatlinburg for the Arts and Craft Fair and to Clingman's Dome, and to Pigeon Forge/Sevierville for shopping -- perfect. On a side note - Mom (90) made it to the very top of Clingman's Dome!!

Owner's reply: So happy you enjoyed your visit and loved our home as much as we do! I hope you will plan to visit us again next year! I am amazed that your Mom made it to the top of Clingman's Dome! What a celebration!

“Great cabin with even better view!”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2015

Beautiful cabin that sits on top of the mountain. There were 8 people and had plenty of space. You can sit out on the back deck and see for miles. It was very peaceful. We rode up on motorcycles. After riding the Dragon Tail and the Blue Ridge Parkway the hot tub was very welcome. We would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone thinking of going to the Smoky Mountains.

Owner's reply: I am so glad you enjoyed your visit! The views are why we bought the property and built our home! Thank you for your feedback and I hope you will plan to visit again!

“Perfect fit for our family vacation”

Reviewed 3 May 2015

There were 7 in our group and the accommodations were perfect for all of us. We all enjoyed the pool table, hot tub and I really appreciated the jacuzzi tub. The views were spectacular and tons of activities were close by. We took a couple trips thru the mountains going to Cherokee and to the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. We climbed Clingman's Dome and hiked to a couple waterfalls. I would highly recommend going to this fantastic National Park, especially since it is so close. We had a thunder storm one evening and we were able to have a spectacular view of the lightening show from the top decks. That was Awesome!!! The drive up the mountain started off pretty easy, but as we got higher the Incline got steeper (some in our vehicle have a fear of heights, so that was a bit of a challenge). But the house and view were worth the drive!! Thanks so much for opening up your home in the mountains!

Owner's reply: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at Bearly Below Heaven! Please come visit us again!
