My understanding is that she had a house in Canaan, CT back in the early 1970’s when she wrote this song.

Canaan is the promised land as promised by God to Abraham. It was a large and prosperous ancient country (at times independent, at others a tributary to Egypt) located in present-day Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Israel and was also known as Phoenicia.
Carole King is Jewish and was speaking of the Jewish promised land and paradise.
