New: Smoky Mountain Travel Tips from Heavenly Cabins


We are so Blessed!!  This is just a few of the kind comments that we receive.  Rog & Cheryl

Tree Tops 
We visit the Smokies at least once a year, and found the Tree Tops cabin to be one of the best in our experiences. The location is ideal for those who want solitude, but need to have easy access to things. Our group consisted of 12 (plus some drop bys) ranging in age from 5 to 70, and there was room, activity, and comfort for everyone. Those who wanted to be in the action were only few minutes and a very easy drive from Pigeon Forge, and you can drive from Tree Tops to Gatlinburg without passing under a traffic light!

We visited over New Year's, weekend but with the great view to the South and West, we'd love to be there again next fall. I can just imagine an Autumn view from the porch swing (we fought over the swing!). All around the cabin you see references to our Lord, Jesus Christ, and this made us all feel welcomed and comfortable. The picture of Christ over the door (see virtual tour) was very interesting to study. It is such good conversation piece that we are putting one in our home.

Thanks to Roger and Cheryl for their hospitality and for representing Christ in a way I haven't seen at any other rental facility.

We loved "Inspiration Point" during our stay while visiting The Smokies. Great views, easy access to the park, food shopping, a nice great room and several bedrooms combined with the seclusion away from the strip in Pigeon Forge made for a great vacation. It was great to be able to bring the dogs also to such a great cabin. The hot tub was key for our recovery after hiking Mt. LeConte!!

Cheryl, Hi! Just returning from our trip to your cabin. Just to let everyone know the cabin is way more than anyone would ever expect. It was so spacious, that I didn't even realize my parents or my teen age daughter was in the house. I really enjoyed relaxing in the hot-tub daily, it was just the way to end the day. Even my pet, Sandy, enjoyed the big yard. I will someday return and refer you to my friends.......

Thank you again, Tina Sheets

Glimpse of Heaven
Thank you, Thank you for the wonderful weekend at 'Glimpse of Heaven'. It really is a piece of heaven. The cabin is decorated beautifully, we couldn't help but to get a bear to put in the collection. I'm torn between the breath-taking views when you wake up or the hammock, loved them both. Brent's favorite was the hot tub. The game of Pool.....well we had fun!!! Ha Ha!! Thanks again for everything!!!

God Bless you both!!!

Simply stated, everything about Glimpse of Heaven is first class. That's why we've stayed there before--and why we'll be back. The outstanding experience we've enjoyed with each visit is testament to the hard work of the owners. They stop at nothing to make your stay a real pleasure--and we appreciate it!

It would be difficult to find a nicer place than "Glimpse of Heaven" to spend your time in the Smokies. It is everything it is claimed to be and truly offers a "glimpse of heaven." This is the first time my son has wanted to stay anywhere for more than 3 days. We spent a week and he asked if we could spend two. This was one of the best vacations that I can recall and I actually came home feeling rested.

Jeff and Donna Laine, Bradenton, Fl. 34202 

A Glimpse of Heaven is exactly what we found in this cabin. There is nothing that's been missed in providing for the comfort and relaxation of guests here. We had no reason to leave during our four-day stay because we felt right at home. The website description and pics are totally accurate, but there is so much more to experience. The cabin is warm and cozy, and the mountain view, especially at sunset, is incredible. We especially appreciate having such a beautiful place to share with our year-old Sheltie. We will be back!

Diane, Ralph & Kasey Bailey, Fairmont WV

This is the second time we have stayed in one of Cheryl and Roger's cabins, and each time has been perfect. We just loved our week at Glimpse of Heaven. The view is spectacular, the cabin is immaculate and beautifully furnished, and the location is ideal. And we both adored those awesome swings on the deck overlooking the mountains. We ate all our meals on them. What makes a "Heavenly Cabin" stay so special is that so much care is taken to make guests feel at home and to anticipate their needs. It is one of the most relaxing and stress free vacations we have ever had. We hope to return soon.

I didn't want to let another day go by without thanking you for allowing us to stay at Tree Tops Cabin. Everything was absolutely perfect. We were all very pleased with how spacious and clean the cabin was when we arrived and at all the 'extras'. I also wanted to thank you for the holiday decorations. I know when we spoke, you mentioned you did not typically have them decorated that early so, I we were surprised to see the Christmas Tree and all the added touches. It made the cabin all the more 'homey'. Needless to say, we all found the picture of Jesus very interesting as I'm sure all do. No matter how well you study it, you can blink and discover something totally new.

My husband and I strategically (a nice way of saying we pulled rank :?) positioned ourselves in the 'balcony' bedroom and it was absolutely wonderful to wake up to the gourgeous view of the mountains. What was truly amazing is that even with our group we never felt crowded, 'on top of each other' or ran out of hot water. What a great floorplan. Even before we left, my family had decided that we need to return soon and spend more time. So, I guess I best stop here and go back to work to earn some money so we can...

Cathy Brewer, Richmond Hill, GA

Hi Cheryl and Roger,
Thanks again for the use of your cabin. Everything was wonderful. The first night we grilled steaks. Wow! What a nice grill. We saw a bear and wild turkey while driving around and to top off our vacation, we got to see Dolly at Dollywood. Everything was just beautiful at the cabin. We enjoyed our time there with each other. It's so nice to have a centrally located place where we can meet with us all coming from different directions. We plan to book for next year, too. Thanks again for everything and for being so efficient.

Jesse and Selina Russell, Shallotte,N.C.

Our stay at the cabin was the greatest experience ever. Not only was the area beautiful and everything as promised, but also very accommodating. We had everything there that was needed and even more. We will most definitely recommend heavenly cabins to everyone we know. Thank you for all you have done for us.

Natalie Goodwin, Clarksville, TN

WOW!!! That should say enough however I will add a few more. What a great cabin. The view was spectacular. My 8 year old loved the pool table. We are looking forward to coming back in the summer.

Lyn & Teresa Milner, Fletcher, NC

We have found our "home away from home." This cabin had everything our family desired. The view was breathtaking, the accommodations cozey, and the little extras provided by the owners much appreciated. We will definitely return to this cabin.


What a cabin! Totally amazed as we pulled up and saw the view. Loved relaxing outdoors on the deck whether we were on the hammock, swing or eating breakfast at the outdoor table. The trees fall colors were quite a treat. The cabin itself was absolutely beautiful with great decorating touches and furnishings that included quite a bit of extras. We saved time each day to play pool and relax a little in the hottub. Our days were spent visiting & hiking in the park so it seemed as though our week flew by. We were wishing we had more time there. We will certainly recommend "Glimpse of Heaven" to others and hope to return next year. A great treat to us was being able to bring our other family member (dog), Ginger, who loved it there.

Lisa and David Bernett, St. Louis, MO

We were very fortunate to have received a 4 night stay at GLIMPSE OF HEAVEN this past week for our honeymoon. We were very pleased and amazed at this cabin. The cabin was everything we hoped it would be and a whole lot more. The accomodations were very nice, and the property had been taken care of . From the layout of the cabin, to the hot tub and pool table, we had the best time.

Cheryl & Roger know exactly what the "renters" of this cabin needed. The website directions were right on que. All of the lil extras were not unoticed. We are already in the works to try and plan a Winter trip with our immediate family and I guarantee that we will stay at Glimpse Of Heaven. We were spoiled and are ready to go back.

Thanks for the great trip,

Jason & Tara Tallant , Hickory, North Carolina

We had a wonderful time in the Smokies. The "Inspiration Point" cabin was truly an inspiration. We felt so close to God and all of the beautiful nature and peaceful quiet. I even got a picture of a red-headed woodpecker in front of the cabin. The cabin is my idea of "roughing it", leather sofas and king and queen size beds, not to mention the gorgeous decorating, the relaxing hot tub and the soothing fireplace. All of the little "extras" made us feel very special. We look forward to staying again really soon.

We feel that we have found a mountain retreat especially for us. Thank you Cheryl and Roger for allowing us some R & R in the Smokies! God bless you for all that you do.

I stayed in Inspiration Point for a quick three day weekend with 5 other friends from home. Everyone loved the location and views that were available from the decks of the cabin. The entire cabin was very clean and convenient.

Paul Troutt, Gallatin, TN

Inspration Point is the first house we have rented in the Gatlinburg, Piegon Forge area that was actually as good in person as the pictures and description we recieved from the owners. My wife and I have been renting in this area for almost 10 years. This is the first house that we really want to go back to. The owners were very courteous and helpful. We had everything in the house that they promised. The views were awsome.

Glenn & Cindy Smith, Thomasville, NC

My husband and I were fortunate enough to have stayed at Glimpse of Heaven over Labor Day. We were so happy with everything about the cabin, both inside and out, that we wished we had booked it for a longer stay. The view of the mountains was spectacular, and we watched the sunset from the deck almost every evening. We felt so comfortable and welcome and certainly would not change a thing! Thank you so much for opening your home up to us, and we cannot wait to book this "heavenly" cabin again and again.
God Bless!!

I just wanted to thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cabin.  It was the best Christmas we have ever had together as a family.  My son got to go snowboarding for the first time and did incredible.  Jim went skiing.  We sledded some down your hill beside the house. We had a beautiful white Christmas.  It snowed saturday when we got there, Sunday and also on Christmas eve.  We went to Cades cove twice,  took a hayride to see the lights in Gatlinburg and pretty much just relaxed around your cabin.  Anyway, I just wanted you to know how thankful we are to have ended up at your cabin above all the others. We feel like it was an answer to our prayers.  We hope to be able to come again, maybe in the summer or fall.  Thanks again and may your family be blessed with a healthy and Happy New year.

I don't think I ever thanked you for the absolutely awesome experience we had in Wear Valley thanks to your gracious invitation to rent your cabin. It is an awesome place! The weather was heaven sent and the inspiration breathless. We are very thankful to people like you who take a risk and share your treasures. 

Thanks from all of us,

Your e-mail reminded me that I need to tell you what a great time Tonya and myself had at Glimpse of Heaven. The cabin was truly wonderful - we loved all of the personal touches that made it feel like home. We almost hated to leave, but were also excited to come back and start our lives together as husband and wife. I cannot wait until we can afford to go back! It maybe a year or so though - getting married is expensive! But I cannot complain, the LORD has blessed us beyond measure. Thanks again for providing such a wonderful place for us to stay on our honeymoon - we will never forget it! I'll keep you in mind if I hear of anyone looking for a place to stay up there - I took several of your brochures to hand out and I cannot wait to go online to see your newest cabin! Thanks again and have a blessed day!

P.S. We couldn't help but buy a bear for your cabin - his name is Cornbread and we got him from our favorite place to eat...Cracker Barrel - hope you don't mind!

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your cabin Tree Tops. There were five couples in our party and it accommodated us well. We loved the fact that we could drive out of Pigeon Forge (and all of the traffic) just a few miles and be away from it all. Tree Tops is even more than we expected. For starters, the cabin was easily accessible.   The scenery was spectacular from the porches and windows and the outside furniture was gorgeous. We enjoyed the living room with the fireplace and sat around watching football on cool evenings. The hot tub and pool table were great, too. We stayed up late every night using both. All the little extras didn't go unnoticed either, such as nice linens, the candy, toiletries, and wow! - a Christmas tree!. It was beautiful! Tree Tops was very clean, too. I could just keep going on and on about the cabin. I told my husband now I know why they call it "Smoky Mountains Memories". Thank you very much and we are looking forward to coming back to Tree Tops (ASAP).

I just wanted to say "Thank You" again for all your help in making our stay so memorable! Tree Tops was absolutely beautiful, and perfect for our reception. There was plenty of room for all, which was key with seven active youngsters to entertain! Yet its size is deceptive; it still seems so nice and homey and cozy, everyone had a wonderful time! We set up a lovely buffet lunch for everyone, and afterward all danced on the deck. We had a beautiful day, the weather was perfect, and the view is beautiful! And after everyone had left, we could sit back and relax on the deck in peace and quiet, and just enjoy the beautiful mountains. We couldn't have asked for more!!

Also wanted you to know how very much we appreciate all the personal attention you gave us, from the time we first contacted you, through our stay, and even upon our return. You were instrumental in helping us find a spot to have our wedding ceremony, locating a minister, all kinds of suggestions to help us out with our stay! Thanks too for calling us on the day of our wedding with your congratulations, and to see if we had everything we needed; you can't put a price on that kind of personal attention!!! I will (and already have!) recommend you to anyone planning a trip to the Great Smoky Mountains. Your accomodations are wonderful, but the service is where you truly shine. Thank you again for everything!! We will definitely call you next time we head to the mountains of Tennessee!!

Thank you so very much for allowing us a little Glimpse of Heaven. For a surprise birthday get-away your place is superb. The decor is gorgeous, the view is majestic and every extra imaginable is supplied. The experience of lying in the upstairs hammock with the warmth of the afternoon sun as company is worth more than money. We will be back and soon! Thank you again for every insightful preparation and thought you have given to make your quests feel more than welcomed. We felt like friends of the family.

Grace and Peace!   Sharlon and Gary Carver

Just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed our weekend at the cabin. We have stayed in cabins before in the area. This one was different in that we felt as though we were guests in someone's home. The decor and homey atmosphere helped make the weekend truly relaxing and enjoyable. We came back refreshed and renewed. Our thanks to you and your husband for creating such a great environment to truly get away.

Our retreat was absolutely spirit filled! We felt cradled in God's arms as we beheld the beautiful view of, a small part of God's creation, as we began our late winter retreat on the deck of Tree Tops. The weekend progressed with a bedtime affirmation that we are beautiful women, a reminder that each of us is God's child. … We are ALL beautiful and special to many people, our families, our friends, our co-workers, our sisters in Christ and especially to the one we call our Savior. Tree Tops is so graciously and comfortably accomodating. It was difficult to leave this little bit of heaven and area already making plans to return. THANK YOU for the opportunity to share your gift with us.

WE loved it! I actually got back to work today. I took yesterday to come back down to earth and to get prepared for the amount of work on my desk! I thank you so much for allowing us to use it! Mandy and TJ, Landon's cousin and her husband, couldn't get over it and took some brochures for their family and friends.  The cabin is decorated so nicely and is so cozy and dreamy. I love the Jesus sign on the tree below and all the bears around the cabin! Well, back to reality! Thanks again! We will definitely do it again!

Kelley & Landon - Atlanta GA

Your cabin is just wonderful. It was a new adventure, but we fell in love with it very quickly. It is decorated so pretty, especially with all the bears.  

Elizabethton KY

We all had such a wonderful time, we did not want to leave. We enjoyed our stay and we hope that we soon can return. The cabin was absolutely outstanding. There were no problems at all.

Everything was perfect. Everyone loved the bear decor, very nice touch. I look forward to my next trip.

I also wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had at your cabin this week. We have been coming to the Smokies during our Spring Break with our children for about ten years now. I can say without hesitation that your cabin is our all time favorite place to have stayed. 

Hartselle AL

We had a great time. One of the best Christmas`s ever! The place was great! We hope to stay again. Thank you for helping to make our Christmas wonderful! Have a great New Year!

Six Mile SC

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed your cabin so very much. It is just beautiful and comfortable. I don't think you need any suggestions because you have everything just perfect. Thank you for all you did for us. The trip was everything and more than my mother ever expected it to be and she had such a wonderful time so----- I am very happy about that.     

Garland TX

We enjoyed our time at "Glimpse" , but would have liked more time there to enjoy the view, jacuzzi, etc. You certainly provide things that other owners do not.
