Heavens View Cabin
We had 4 great days at your cabin. I loved the view, and big deck. The place is well furnished, and the guys loved the pool table. It got a lot of use. We definitely will try and stay in this cabin when we come down there next time.

Great Cabin
We had a good time at Family Memories. Very nice cabin and in good shape in a nice quite area. We did have 1 problem with the grill and lighting it. The one side has no igniter, but we had a lighter. We will think about coming back there again.

Amazing Place!
This was our very first time in the mountains and very first time renting a cabin! So glad we landed here...what a fantastic place! We love the bedrooms on separate floors..the 3 BIG bathrooms...newer appliances and cupboards loaded with anything you could possibly need to cook a good meal. The view is stunning and everything here was in great working order. It was easy to find and private. The location was close to everything we wanted to do in 3 areas,but far enough off the parkway that you don't have to deal with that traffic. Very impressive for our first experience!

Our stay at Heaven's View
We had a wonderful stay in the mountains. Your home is beautiful and very comfortable. Our favorite was the deck. We really enjoyed all your nice deck furniture and the amazing view of the Smokies. We needed large beds because we had ten adults and that is one reason we chose your place. We cooked all our meals in and we found the kitchen to be quite well equipped. Your location is convenient to the national park and Cades Cove as well as Pigeon Forge as we had a couple of shoppers in our group! Your location was also easy to find and easily accessed as well as convenient to a nice grocery store. We hope to plan another mountain get-away in the future and would certainly love to return to your lovely mountain home.

Adorable Cabin
Went there for our honeymoon, the website photos defiantly don't do it justice. Everything there was comfortable, and well put together. This was our first time visiting the area. And though there was so much to do, we spent most of our time at the cabin. It felt like a home away from home. You have a wonderful view from the hot tub. It's defiantly a place I plan on returning to.

Wonderful Stay at Heaven's View Cabin
We hosted our annual Sibling Reunion this past week. We chose Heaven's View as our Venue. What a perfect place for the Reunion. Great location with seclusion yet readily available. Nice and clean. Good family place. The porch is the perfect place to gather for meals and snacks. Our family voted to hold the Sibling Reunion at Heaven's View again in the future.

Family Memories- Memorial Day Weekend Vacation
Enjoyed our stay in your cabin- awesome views of the mountains! Centrally located in Wears Valley which makes it a short drive to Pigeon Forge and Cades Cove. Enjoyed the deck in the early morning and afternoons- great view of the mountains! Cabin very neat and clean.

Good News, Bad News
This was probably the cleanest cabin we have ever stayed in. The view was beautiful and we enjoyed the large deck. For us, not having a shower on the main level was a real problem.

Wonderful Cabin
We did indeed make great "Family Memories" at your wonderful cabin! We went with our two young adult children and had a great time. Plenty of space for everyone and the cabin was well supplied. The hot tub was great and we loved the fire pit. It was so nice to be able to do laundry while we were there and not have that chore when we returned home! Very close to Metcalf Bottoms picnic area in the park! We look forward to returning!

Cabin in the valley
We stayed in Golden Memories in February 2015. We found the cabin in immaculate condition and even better than the pictures. It snowed while we were there and we were confined to the cabin for a couple of days. We enjoyed the beautiful snow covered scenery and just snuggling by the fire. The day before we were to leave we contacted the owner to express concern for our ability to get out due to the heavy snow cover on the road leading to the cabin. They came over and shoveled and put down salt, told us they would come back the next day to help us get out if necessary. Being from southeast Texas and not accustomed to driving in snow, we really appreciated their help. Great honeymoon cabin or get away for a couple. Will rent from these owners again!

We took our first vacation in 9 years and headed to the Smokies because we have wonderful memories there. We decided to rent a cabin this time and chose Heaven's View. When we walked in, we were so happy to find the cabin exactly as it looked in the pictures on the website! Comfy, cozy, clean, secluded, and definitely a view as close to heaven as one could get. We will be back and we will stay at one of the Smoky Mountain Golden Cabins on every vist. Thank you for your hospitality!

"Golden" Memories
We loved the cabin! It had everything we needed. The location was exactly what we had hoped, near enough to the things we wanted to see and do, but secluded and quiet. Hope to return again some day! Also, love the name as we have a beautiful Golden ourselves!!

AWESOME Cabin with breathtaking views
We have rented many cabins over the years in this area, but "Family Memories" is among the best ! The cabin is very clean and in a very easy to drive to location. Perfect location for Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and my favorite, Cades Cove. The views from the living room and the front porch are amazing. The "starter" supplies lasted me and my husband for our entire stay! The bed in the master is so comfortable and you don't hear a sound at night - so peaceful. We are trying to plan our next trip now to "Family Memories.

An Awesome Vacation Getaway!!
This was one of the best vacations we have ever been on! This is by far the best cabin experience! The location of the cabin was great--secluded yet still convenient to everything! It was a short drive to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and a very short distance to Townsend where there is a grocery store, etc. Our group included 4 adults and 4 children and the layout of the cabin was perfect with all of the children on the bottom floor! The extra amenities kept the kids entertained while us adults were able to enjoy ourselves. The condition of the cabin was fabulous and made us feel very at home! Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful cabin!

Heaven's View March 28-April 4, 2015
The cabin was very nice. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The DVR was a nice amenity. Heaven's View is a beautiful cabin and lives up to its name...the sunrise, sunset, and mountain views from the cabin were "heavenly".

Great family getaway
We reserved the cabin for a spring break getaway with our two high school kids. We all had a great time! The beds were so comfortable...we enjoyed sitting outside on the deck, and using the fire pit to make s'mores. We soaked in the hot tub, grilled burgers and chicken, and played many games of pool downstairs. The wifi was a great convenience, the cable TV was fun, and we were able to cook all our meals and eat comfortably both indoors and out. We HIGHLY recommend this cabin, and will certainly return if we ever come back to the area again. Thank you Donn and Margaret, and God Bless.

Wonderful Visit!
This is our second stay at Family Memories. This house is perfect for us. We traveled with two children and a maltipoo. The house was clean and had everything we needed. We loved the convenience to the national park, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg.

A great time in the Smokeys!
Our family of 11 came together from 4 different states and were able to relax by the fire, catch up, watch the NCAA tournament games, and marvel at the view. We used every square inch of the lodge including the well stocked kitchen,the pool table, hot tub , and we roasted marshmallows in the fire pit every night! I want to say thank you to Donn and his family for providing this beautiful place for families and friends to spend time together and create new memories. We will be back!

Perfect Place for Family Time
We planned a quick get away for our family to reconnect after my son was discharged from the military. This cabin was perfect! We felt at home immediately! The cabin was beautiful! The setting was remote enough that we had quiet family time, yet close enough to Smokey Mountain National Park and the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area we were able to enjoy the sights. We definitely plan on returning!

Nice Place
Overall a good experience. Cabin is very nice, great view, good location. Lot's of room and space to spread out. There were two of us, but you could fit 3 couples each with their own room on separate floors with full bath and own porch. Good feature.

We had a wonderful stay at Golden View Lodge. The cabin more than exceeded our expectations. Cabin was very clean and spacious. Beds were very comfortable and looked just like the pictures.

An amazing getaway
Everything about this cabin was just perfect. Everything you could possibly need was already in the kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and the views were breath taking. We got a good amount of snow during our stay but they were right on top of keeping the driveway clear for us. It was the perfect location, everything was just a short drive but far enough away that it is nice and quite when you come home. We fell in love with Wears Valley and will definitely be back soon.

Our stay was Awesome!
Our stay at Heavens View was awesome. The cabin was great and the view was beautiful and secluded. We had three winter storms that came through while we were there and made it more fun. The owners, Don and Margaret, were very nice and concerned about us when we had ice and snow and temperatures near 0 degrees.They helped us in many ways including plowing snow off the road and putting salt down.We all felt they went above and beyond to take care of us.They are very nice people. We have finally found the renters we want to come back to every time we rent a cabin in the Smoky's.Thank you Don and Margaret.We will be back soon!

February Snow Days
The Golden View really is a pinnacle of cabin retreats. The warm, 20 sleeper mountain dwelling is more than accommodating and comfortably housed 15 adults. Do not fear the ascent to the top of this beautiful mountain, for the Tischs will certainly see that the roads are ice free for the duration of your stay. Our weekend in February required the owners to clear nearly a foot of snow and salt the drive multiple times. We are all grateful for the opportunity to see the majesty of The Great Smokey Mountains from a cabin that is hardly rivaled in seclusion and convenience. Thank you for letting is stay.

Absolutely Breathtaking!!!
Donn and Margaret, the owners, have got to be the nicest and most accommodating people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Since the weather was bad during our visit, Donn called the day we were due to arrive, to ensure that we new what the weather would be like and that we had what we needed to get to the cabin and enjoy our visit. They had the driveway salted just before our arrival which made the commute up and down the mountain a total breeze. This cabin is absolutely breathtaking!! It starts with a beautiful drive up a very well maintained paved road to a private driveway, which is also paved and well maintained. Entering the cabin, immediately takes you to another, more peaceful place. The views are second to none no matter which angle you take from the 360 degree porch. Golden View Lodge is filled with all the comforts of a luxurious home. The mountain themed furnishings are modern and comfortable, providing total serenity. It is perfect for family gatherings, reunions of any type, or a romantic getaway for 2. We stayed for 4 nights and did not want to leave. In fact, many of the activities we had planned, were passed up for more time in the cabin. The pool table, hot tub and second kitchen on the lower level were a big hit during our stay. The cabin's kitchen is extremely well stocked, which actually encouraged me to cook so that I could use some of the kitchen tools that were unfamiliar to me. The cabin is located in a central, but secluded location which makes it easy to get to and from area attractions. This cabin is 100% as advertised and you won't be disappointed. We have already planned to return next year!!

My Second Home
Going to the Smoky Mts. Is like going back home each time we visit. Donn and Margaret have the best cabins! They are always very clean and have everything you need. We rented "Family Memories" this time and loved the sitting room with the big window overlooking the beautiful mountains. Our dog loved having the fenced back yard so he could get frisky in the ice and snow we had. Donn is there for your every need and cares about his renters. We appreciate the personal touch you receive when you rent from Donn and Margaret.
