My husband and I were looking for a place to ride horses and enjoy the scenery without feeling like we were being watched or babied. This place was exactly what we were looking for. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about the horses and their tendencies. They take great care of their horses; they roam in pasture while they... More

My friend and I went on our spring break trip to zipline! It was a phenomenal experience. The views were great! The staff was so friendly and accommodating! I will definitely be telling my friends and family about it; I hope to visit again!

Had a great time ziplining here. The views are beautiful and the staff was super friendly. My kids (9 and 12) loved it! My 9-year old even had a broken arm in a cast, but it was no problem. The experience might be a bit scary for little ones because the lines are pretty high above a valley. But everything... More

A group of seven of us went to horseback ride here and it was so fun! It was a bit rainy and the place was thinking of closing for the day, but they kept it open just for us. The horseback ride was self-guided, because the horses knew the trail and were so well-behaved. The sights were truly beautiful and... More

My kids and I did both the ziplines and the horse ride. We had a blast. Skittish kiddos? me too! But the staff knew exactly how to be encouraging and patient, and the end result was nothing sort of a courageous waypoint in my kids' lives. It is pricier than I anticipated, but any worry about the cost evaporated when... More

We did the unguided horseback ride and absolutely loved it. Beautiful views. The horses are amazing. We also zip lined for the first time and LOVED it also. Staff was so sweet! Definitely recommend Next to Heaven..We will be back!

These are the most behaved horses you will ever ride and the view is priceless! Usually when you pay to ride horses it's around $50-$70 and definitely not very long, but here it's only $31 and about an hour long. You can't beat that! The Christian quotes throughout the trail are awesome too! Best place to ride! Extremely kind staff... More

Best horseback riding in the smokies. We've been to several but none compare to this self guided view of the smokies. Definitely next to heaven.
