The open-plan living/dining/kitchen area is one flight up, on the main floor. The three perfectly cushioned leather sofas are ideal for watching a program on the 60” flat-screen TV, taking advantage of the free WiFi, or catching up with friends and family—assuming you can draw your gaze away from the view of the mountains just outside the twenty-three-foot-high wall of windows. The room itself is a stunner—lustrous hickory wood floors, pine wood walls, and vaulted ceiling; dramatic chandeliers; furnishings that define rustic refinement—and the warm glow of the gas fireplace in the winter makes it even more inviting.
There’s room for six at the log dining table, and another six can make them comfortable at the adjacent breakfast bar that surrounds the kitchen. Outfitted with a full array of appliances, cookware, and tableware—plus ample granite counters and plenty of elbow room—the kitchen will please experienced cooks as much as it will those who plan to do little more than brew coffee and reheat leftovers from the previous evening’s restaurant meal.
You can also cook and dine outdoors. As well as a gas grill, Star Dancer has a picnic table that can seat up to ten people. There’s nothing like eating outside, surrounded by mountains and the sunshine as warblers and sparrows serenade you!
The three large bedrooms are spread out among the house, one on each floor, for maximum privacy. Each definitely qualifies as a master suite, with a king-size bed, a private bathroom, a flat-screen TV, and direct access to a deck or a balcony—perfect for enjoying a romantic nightcap under the stars. We also have a queen size sleeper sofa located downstairs in the game room. For the remainder of your group we have four comfortable twin size portable beds. They are very comfortable beds with memory foam mattresses and a trampoline support system for great cozy comfort. These simple-to-use portable beds can be moved to any room in the cabin for ultimate convenience. Up to twelve people can comfortably sleep in Star Dancer. There are a total of four and a half baths as well, so no one will be caught waiting too long for a bathroom to come open.
Star Dancer’s Gatlinburg location offers a wealth of privacy and calm. It’s not too far from civilization, however. In summer you’ll have access to two nearby swimming pools, and Bent Creek Golf Course, designed by Masters and British Open winner Gary Player, is only a five-minute drive away. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the restaurants and attractions of downtown Gatlinburg aren’t much farther.
Star Dancer proves just how luxurious a log home in the Smoky Mountains can be. But don’t take our word for it: Book your stay and savor its splendor firsthand!
