Description

Fun-filled days and starry nights await you at Starry Nights Lodge, a five-bedroom, pet-friendly log cabin overlooking woodlands amid the Great Smoky Mountains. Thanks to its position atop a high ridge, when you step out onto one of the house’s decks you’ll feel as if you can almost touch the clouds and the stars.

But while the setting may seem blissfully remote, the location is surprisingly convenient: You can drive to restaurants, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, skiing, shopping, golf, and plenty of other amusement in mere minutes. And in the summer, you’ll have free access to three beautifully landscaped pool areas nearby.

Even without hopping in the car, you’ll find plenty to keep you and your group happily entertained at Starry Nights Lodge. The top floor of the three-story cabin includes a game room equipped with a full-size pool table, a sixty-game arcade table, and a flat-screen TV. Between games, you can stretch out on one of the two plush futons or catch up with friends at the bar area.

Better yet, head downstairs to the outdoor hot tub. It is perfectly positioned for optimal views of the mountains—simply breathtaking! And nothing is as romantic as sharing a steamy jetted soak with that special someone under the silvery light of the moon.

The decks are also furnished with rockers and a porch swing so that you can savor the stunning surroundings any time. Because the main deck completely wraps around the cabin, you can watch the sunrise from one side and take in the sunset from the other. And since the decks are covered, you can happily sit outside with a book and a drink even during the midday heat or a shower. What’s more, you can enjoy your meals out on the deck, courtesy of the picnic table. And since you’re dining alfresco, why not cook outside too, on the gas grill?

While we’re on the subject of meals, let’s talk about Starry Nights Lodge’s kitchen and dining area, both of which are on the main floor. The open kitchen is equipped with all the appliances, cookware, and tableware you’ll need, whether you plan to channel your inner Julia Child or simply microwave popcorn for a late-night snack. If you do intend for serve up a feast for family and friends, you’ll appreciate the spacious dining table, which easily seats ten. There’s room for an additional three people at the adjacent breakfast bar—the kids will love eating there “by themselves” while the adults enjoy a more leisurely meal.

If the kids commandeer the game room after dinner, the grown-ups can decamp to the main floor’s living room. With its luxe cabin decor—roomy roll-arm seating; Arts and Crafts-style tables; burnished wood-plank floor, walls, and ceiling; a stone-surround gas fireplace—it’s a handsome, comfortable space for watching TV, surfing the web, or playing Scrabble.

The five bedrooms are furnished to the same high standard. The two bedrooms on the top floor each have a king-size bed; of the three bedrooms on the lower level, one has a king bed, one has a queen-sized bed, and the other has a set of queen bunk beds. All five bedrooms boast their own private bathroom, a TV, and plenty of storage.

Have additional guests? The game room can sleep up to four people—two on each futon—and the sofa in the living room converts to a bed for another two. In all, Starry Nights Lodge can sleep eighteen people, making it perfect for a family reunion, a ski trip with friends, or a summer vacation with another family.

No matter the occasion or the time of year, when you stay at Starry Nights Lodge a good time will be had by all. See for yourself: Reserve your stay today, and start planning your best vacation ever.

Good stay, don't count on two hot tubs and three pools though...

We stayed at this cabin with 12 other friends as we were getting married down here. Sleeping situation was perfect. Slept 14 of us very comfortably. Bathrooms were really nice and so were the decks. Kitchen was large and nice to cook in, we also had a grill we used a lot. Saw TONS of bears but they kept their distance and we kept ours, we did not feed them. We also had three dogs with us as this is a dog friendly cabin. We have a couple minor complaints. There was only a tiny patch of grass right along the road to let the dogs out, which is kind of scary as it is a very twisty road so we were worried about cars. The cabin also claims to have two hot tubs and they only have one. Not a huge deal but still kind of annoying. Having 14 people, it would have been nice to have two hot tubs like they advertised. The resort also supposedly has three different pools to use. Two days out of the week, the pools are closed for "maintenance." No one was ever there taking care of or cleaning the pools. The next day we went to the pool and it was green like it was never cleaned. The only pool that was open had an occupancy limit and no time limit. So we barely got to use the pools which we were really looking forward to as it was the middle of August. Fortunately, we did not have any children with us. Overall good stay, but wish I would have looked for somewhere different as I paid a higher price to have two hot tubs and three pools and neither of those things happened.

The cabin is nice, spacious but could use some attention to the amenities. The hot tubs do not work properly, only one main jet on each works. Pool table is close to falling apart and joysticks on arcade games not work. There is a sound bar speaker with subwoofer that is not connected to anything and no instructions on how it works or what it is for. Some electronics in bedrooms did not work. No instructions for any of the electronics which could be helpful, especially in living room. Disappointed with 10am checkout time.

Starry night lodge

The cabin was very nice, and it easily accommodated our large group. The only downside was requested our trash get picked up in the middle of the week, and it never did so bears got to it. We also called about the hot tubs, and never heard back from the company.
