This is our 2nd year using Natural Retreats in the Smokies. The reservation, check in and check out processes are easy and any questions answered promptly. The homes are very clean and beautiful. The location is perfect for a get away. The pilot light in our fireplace went out during a windy day and the maintenance person was at our cabin within 15 minutes of our phone call to take care of it. He was very nice and took care of it quickly. We will be back. Thank you!

It was a little scary driving up the driveway, but after that thrill, everyone had a very good time. There was space for to be alone or be with the whole family, and nobody had any melt downs.

The cabins need to be updated with smart TV's and Keurig coffee makers. I have rental properties in Gulf Shores and I had to update for the demand and you should as well.

The cabin was absolutely beautiful! It had everything you could need. The views were sooo amazing! There was more than enough space for our group of 6. We had no issues with anything during our stay. Halfway to Heaven definitely stands up to its name! We will be planning another trip to this cabin again!

Natural Retreats was very easy to reach over the phone with questions before we arrived. Also our oven stopped working during our stay and was fixed on the same day. Very easy checkout!

My wife and enjoy our stay in Cabin “Halfway to Heaven #40”. It has a beautiful view of the mountains landscape. The cabin was maintained and awesome. Although it was just two of us it is a great place for our family if it were not for this COVID situation. Our kids and grandkids would have love. FYI this place is challenging to get to and steep at times, not for the faint of heart when it comes to driving. Got to admit we had some white knuckle situation but it’s an adventure. We met with Manager Tracie Reinhardt a real sweetheart with the patience of Angel and gave us great advice & answers all our questions. Will I go back? 4 sure but with a 4 wheeler SUV not the truck. Very Beautiful Picturesque Place, and wonderful people.

Stunningly beautiful!

We were able to book this cabin at the last minute after problems with our cabin with another company made it impossible to stay there. Drew at the office was so helpful and friendly. When we got to Halfway to Heaven cabin, we were blown away by how nice it was and the views were incredible! Lovely view to the west from the kitchen and from the three decks toward the east you can see the whole valley. We would definitely stay here again.

Girls week at Brother's Cove

Large cabin, stunning views from decks all three floors. 3rd floor bedroom was like sleeping in a glass house. We'll equipped kitchen.

Spacious cabin, beautiful views, nice open floor plan great for large group. Three levels with a bedroom and on-suite bathroom on each level. Good air conditioning. Showing some signs of wear and tear. Water damage noticeable from leaky roof or walls.

Wedding in the mountains

I visited in august for my sisters wedding. Halfway to Heaven may have been the best cabin I saw. The view was perfect, it was spacious, clean, and fun! Make sure you vehicle can climb a mountain!

Good but not great

Probably one of the best views at Brothers Cove, beautiful! Cabin was nice but could have been better.

Wouldn't stay again

Visited in March. The overall experience was frustrating and we would not return to this cabin. The television had a parental block on the programming and we couldn't watch anything but children's programs. We contacted the office and they sent out someone to look at it. The initial response was quick but it was never resolved. We were informed the owner would have to provide the code and they put in a call to her. We never heard back. At the same time we realized there was a day between our reservation and the next arrival. We inquired about staying the additional day. We were told they would contact the owner to inquire if she would offer a discount. We never heard back so we called back right before closing. I'm not sure if they received a response but they offered $30 off. We declined. I know they can't give the nights away but we have stayed at cabins managed by a different company who offered significant discounts to add a day to the front or end if there was an extra day. The day before we left was reserved for getting in the hot tub. When we went to use it and it was cold and would not turn on. We contacted the office and they sent someone out to reset the breaker. They told us it would warm up in a few hours. After a frustrating afternoon of checking the temp, we gave up with plans to use it in the morning. By morning it was still only at 60 degrees so we could never use it. If we had it to do over, we would have checked it earlier. So, we left frustrated that we spent money on a cabin where we couldn't watch what we wanted to on the television and we couldn't use the hot tub. We like the Brother's Cove area but these issues with this specific cabin made our stay frustrating.

Beautiful and relaxing!

My family and I vacation every year and stay at Brother's Cove. This year, we stayed in Halfway to Heaven and it sure was an appropriate name. The cabin was beautiful and the view was amazing! I would highly recommend this cabin and Brother's Cove for anyone looking for a relaxing vacation retreat!

Halfway to Heaven Review

We stayed for 4 nights. Overall, the home was nice. However, a few things could be improved. The view from the main floor is completely obstructed by trees. That was disappointing. The outside furniture is in need of upkeep. The air conditioning on the third floor wasn't working so it was extremely warm in that room. Our guests slept on the couches. Also, there was hair on our sheets which was a little disturbing. Check in time needs to be earlier than 4pm being that we’re paying for a full day/night. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay.

Great Getaway

We have visited several times. Always good. We had two new quests with us who just loved the Cabin and views.
GlennMarch 2018


This home is the perfect mountain get-away - plenty of space to stretch out - 3 decks! Did I mention the view? Gorgeous. Sitting on the porch swings and looking over the valley both morning and evening was such a treat. So peaceful. We also enjoyed some snow which just made it perfect and with shopping and restaurants close by, we started our holiday season off in the perfect location - the staff even had a beautiful Christmas tree decorated upon our arrival!

Piece of heaven

I visit this place in August2017 it was piece of haven nothing wrong. Perfect place for relaxing

Great mountain view

We visited Brothers Cove in August 2017 staying in cabin "Halfway to Heaven" and loved the location, the view, and being away from it all for a week. The cabin was beautiful, with great views, and access to a nice pool on the property. The living room and loft furniture was quite worn, however 2 of the beds were very comfortable (1 of the bedrooms the bed was broken upon arrival and took 2 days before fixed so unfortunately had to make other arrangements for sleeping since we were minus a bed :( ). Nice amount of space for 2 families.

Beautiful view!

Our family visited and stayed on Memorial weekend for a family friend's wedding. The house was very nice with each bedroom having its own restroom/shower facility and deck. Wonderful relaxing weekend and beautiful wedding destination. This was one of our best vacations. They even brought a high chair and Pack n Play for my grand baby.

Some of the best views at Brothers Cove.

Spectacular views with this location, the stay was relaxing and a perfect reset for myself and others. the cabin could use some minor touch ups on basic items but nothing that took away from the overall stay. Exceptional!

loved the windows and the view

We rent a cabin every January or February each year. Brothers Cove rentals have never been a disappointment. Enjoy the view and the accommodations !

The property name says it all

We rented this cabin for Christmas and filled the walls with laughter and joy. We rent properties in the Keys and coastal areas often, and I have never encountered a more proactive, detail-oriented, warmer staff. Every detail was anticipated -- including a decorated Christmas tree! We could not have imagined a more lovely way to meet new babies in the family and share the magic of the season. I would suggest in the property description, however, a bit more information on exactly how high up in the mountain this property sits. We had more than a couple of white-knuckle moments going up and down in the rain and fog. I can't imagine what would have happened in the snow or ice. If you're looking for breathtaking views, cozy fires and great family time, this house is for you.

Amazing cabin!

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Halfway to Heaven! Beautiful house, great views and very relaxing stay. The staff at the office, especially Alix, was great and we will definitely be back! Thanks for everything!
