When you pull into the flat, paved driveway at Close to Heaven, you’ll have arrived at a darling log cabin that’s only about 4 miles from the excitement of downtown Pigeon Forge!

Close to Heaven provides plenty of ways to relax and have fun at the cabin without sacrificing the excitement of downtown Pigeon Forge.
Plan to kick back on your rocking chair porch, where you’ll be surrounded by views of the Smoky Mountain trees; then head to downtown Pigeon Forge for fan-favorite dinner shows, a variety of unique boutiques, and outdoor activities galore. When you’re ready for a relaxing night in, Close to Heaven provides a big screen TV with a Blu-ray player, an indoor jetted tub, and a pool table. In the summer, enjoy pool access inside the Pin Oak View resort, and any time of year, make time to sit back and relax in the outdoor hot tub provided by Close to Heaven.

The open floorplan of Close to Heaven makes it easy to relax as a group after your Pigeon Forge adventures on the Parkway or in the nearby national park. A large, full-size couch will comfortably accommodate 2 to 3 guests, and other seating includes a cushy glider, 2 padded rocking chairs, a padded log-style bench, and backless bench set against the wall that doubles as a coffee table. Turn on your big screen TV, pop in a Blu-ray or DVD, and plan for a fun and cozy movie night in the Smokies.
In the winter, turn on your gas fireplace for extra comfort and warmth, and in the fall, enjoy gorgeous views of the changing Smoky Mountain trees right outside your living room windows.

When the weather is cool, take your fresh-brewed cup of coffee onto the back porch for a peaceful Smoky Mountain morning; then head back inside for a yummy breakfast of scrambled eggs, toast, and bacon—all of which you can easily prepare inside Close to Heaven. Simply stop by the grocery store and local markets like the general store at the Old Mill Square for all your favorite goodies.
Although Pigeon Forge has a wide variety of downtown restaurants to satisfy every craving, dining in the privacy of your Pigeon Forge cabin with only your group is a great way to spend time together and enjoy your favorite home-cooked meals without waiting in lines or blowing your vacation budget. Inside Close to Heaven, enjoy a 4-piece dining set that’s conveniently located next to the kitchen.

Enjoy a log-style bedframe along with a ceiling fan, reading lamps, and nightstands.
The second bedroom is almost as spacious, with vaulted ceilings, windows with tree-studded views, a ceiling fan, reading lamps, and nightstands. You won’t find much difference between the 2 bedrooms except the style of the comforter, so each couple can take their pick and share the same amount of bedtime comfort inside this Pigeon Forge cabin. For extra guests, take advantage of Close to Heaven’s sleeper, bringing the total number of guests accommodated by this cabin to 6.
One of the most popular seasons to visit Pigeon Forge is undoubtedly the fall, when the leaves are changing on the Smoky Mountain trees. At Close to Heaven, you’ll have a front row view of this stunning scenery with your back porch that overlooks the wooded hills of the Smokies.

This porch also supplies a sturdy wooden bench for resting your mugs of coffee in the morning or your glasses of sweet iced tea—a Southern staple—in the afternoon.
