if you want a non-commercial zip line experience, this is it. My group of four adults was the only group there at the time of our visit. No long lines or cluster of tourists It was just like we were the only ones flying over the trees. Owners were friendly and really wanted to be sure we had a good... More

Horses in good shape. Great view from the top. Trust the horses; they will get you down the mountain.

Owners were wonderful and friendly, the young men who helped us with zip lining were great. The best part was our horses Payday and Gypsy. I could have spent hours with them, the unguided trail was a beautiful sight.

The owners are very friendly and helpful. The horses know the trail and pretty much guide themselves. I liked that you go by yourself and not in a large guided group. The view at the top is amazing!

The stable owners and their assistant were extremely polite, humble and helpful. We appreciated the kindness and patience that they showed toward our family. They were obviously people of... More

Such a great experience! I would highly recommend Next To Heaven! My parents and I came up to visit my sister at Maryville College and we saw Next To Heaven on our drive to our cabin. We had never been on an unguided horse tour before so we wanted to try it! We had seven people in our group and... More

We were on vacation & my blind mother wanted to zipline. It was on her bucket list. All the people were so nice & very helpful. It was the best experience of our whole trip. Thank you all at Next to Heaven for our memories they will last our lifetime.
