Each level of Starry Hope has a covered deck that stretches the width of the cabin. All 3 decks look out over trees toward the Great Smoky Mountains. The top deck features stereo speakers to complement the especially glorious view, which you can enjoy not only from rocking chairs but also from a hot tub. If you head out early in the morning you can watch the sunrise over Mount LeConte, but the vistas are beautiful any other time of day as well.
While the top deck includes a hot tub, the other decks have their own attractions. The lower deck, for instance, boasts a 2-person swing; the kids will love it during the day, and romantic adults will do the same at night. The middle deck, meanwhile, has a large picnic table so that you can dine outdoors.
Indoors, each floor has its own amenities as well. A huge game room makes up most of the top floor. When you’re not shooting pool at the full-size billiard table you can play air hockey or one of the games loaded on the 2-player multi-game arcade. If it’s rummy or poker you prefer, pull up a seat at the pub table. Or stretch out on one of the 2 sofas and read, surf the web via the free WiFi, or watch a movie on the flat-panel TV. Both sofas, by the way, open into queen-size beds, so that up to 4 people can sleep in the game room. The top floor has its own full bathroom as well, complete with a jetted tub for soothing your tired muscles after a day of hiking, biking, or shopping the scores of stores at the nearby outlet mall. And the views through the wall of windows are nothing short of breathtaking.
The main floor is home to the great room. Kick back on the leather sofas and watch TV or play charades in the warm glow of the stone-surround fireplace. If you need to catch up on emails, get down to business at the desk beside the fireplace—just try not to get distracted by the scenery outside!
The log-style dining table can seat up to 8 people, and 2 more can sidle up to the kitchen’s breakfast bar. The kitchen itself is equipped with appliances ranging from a full-size refrigerator/freezer and oven/stove to a blender and a dishwasher, as well as cookware and tableware. The main floor also includes a bedroom with a king-size bed, a flat-panel TV, and a private bathroom with both a shower and a large soaking tub.
The other 2 bedrooms are downstairs. Each of these has a king-size bed and a TV as well. In addition, 2 more people can sleep in the downstairs den: The sofa facing the large flat-screen TV converts into a queen-size bed. The 3rd full bathroom is downstairs too, along with a washer and dryer.
Starry Hope is located in the Starr Crest Resort, which has an outdoor swimming pool you can use in summer. The cabin is near the top of the resort, making it a prime spot for viewing the fireworks shows put on at nearby Dollywood every night from mid-June to early August.
Dollywood is only a 15-minute drive from Starry Hope, and multiple other attractions are just as close, including Parrot Mountain and Gardens, Gatlinburg Golf Course, and Dixie Stampede. Just slightly farther are the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and always-hopping downtown Gatlinburg.
No matter how you spend your days, you’ll love returning to the comfort, beauty, and amenities of Starry Hope. Book your stay today, before someone else beats you to it, and get ready for a vacation you’ll long remember.

Family get away
Starry Hope was great! Great view great cabin. My family enjoyed the stay very much. I also liked the fact we was still close enough to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We will stay here again for sure.Would recommend to others? Yes
Nice cabin. Furniture, linens, carpet in very poor condition. Rusty colored stain on first floor bedroom comforter - menstrual blood? Main floor couches worn, torn, and need immediate replacement.Would recommend to others? No
Thank you for your review and for your feedback. We have slated replacement of floors, replacement of furniture, and other items. The stain on the comforter was due to a juice spill on it, but that has been replaced already. Come back soon!
Unit really needs updating on the main floor. The mattresses as well as the bedding needs replaced. The quilt/bedspread literally had 3 to 4 tears/holes in it. When we went to remove the linens, the pillows were severely stained. New pillows are very inexpensive. The kitchen did not have decent pots or pans to a even cook with. The teflon pans that were there needed to do be thrown away. They are dangerous when scratched and peeling off as these were. Also there was only kitchen towel. The house itself was great. The view was wonderful, the area was close to town, the roads were great. My family enjoyed the game room immensely. With just a few changes, this could be a fantastic rental.Would recommend to others? No
Thank you for the three-star review and feedback on the property. We are working with the owner to complete a refresh of this property over the next couple of weeks. We have already completed a thorough kitchen inventory, ordered additional supplies, and ordered new pillows. Thanks again for the feedback and we are working to restore this property to its truly exceptional potential!

Lots of room!
This cabin has tons of room and lots of fun for the whole family. Everyone loved the game floor. The furniture in the cabin especially on the main and lower levels were well worn but still comfortable. I have to agree with some other reviews that the beds weren't the most comfortable and the mattresses could be replaced. Everyone still got a full nights sleep though. We were impressed with the view, it was gorgeous from the top level. We had a couple of things come up during our visit and customer service was very responsive and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!Would recommend to others? Yes

Starry Hope is ready for some upgrades
I'd say at least half of everything in the cabin is ready for replacement. The couches in the main floor living area were in very bad condition. A lot of stains on the master bedroom carpet. The kitchen was not that well equipped. It had all the basics, just nothing additional. We own two vacation rentals and we try to think of everything. Tea kettle, crock pot, storage containers for leftovers, etc. There was one dish towel and one really small pot holder. does not supply hangers. Hangers with security loops like in hotels can be purchased for about .75 each. In the master bath there is no where to set your make up, curling iron and other toiletries except for a small spot on the sink. But right next to the sink there is a good sized open spot where a little table or shelving unit could go. Small conveniences like that can be done inexpensively. There is a computer that doesn't work very well, a printer that doesn't work, an X-box that had an input prong missing (easy fix), a Wii that didn't work right. They should just take that stuff out if they don't want to fix it. Just looks bad when everything you try to use is broken. I hate to write such a bad review, but it does need some attention. The cabin itself is nice, the location is good with a nice view. It's a pet friendly cabin and I appreciate the fact that there are owners out there that allow pets. The cabin was clean upon arrival. Other then some scratchs on the doors there was no evidence that dog's had ever stayed there, no odors. I don't blame them for not replacing the scratched doors. That doesn't hurt anything and allows them to remain pet friendly. I had to choose yes or no for recommending this property so I chose no. However, once updated, I would recommend this cabin.Would recommend to others? Yes
Thank you for your four-star overall rating and five-star property manager rating! We appreciate your review and feedback. Based on this review, we are investigating the items mentioned and determining a proper replacement timeframe. Thank you again for brining these items to our attention. Come back soon!
We enjoyed the cabin. We were not there long as we spent much of our time enjoying the activities in Pigeon Forge. Our children loved the game room on the third floor!! The sleeping accommodations were nice and there was plenty of room for everyone. Most of the cabin has beautiful hardwood floors. However The carpet in the bedrooms were quite stained. We didn't get to enjoy the hot tub as it was not warm the evening when we arrived. Maintenance did come to service the hot tub the following day, but the temperature did not stay hot. We were under the impression that this cabin overlooked the fireworks at Dollywood, but in fact you have to go out the front door to view them. We would have preferred to stay in the cabin across the street so the children could have seen the fireworks better as it rained in the evenings. This certainly isn't a big deal, just not quite what we thought we were getting. Also, the trees are grown up so the view in the picture is deceiving, but since we didn't stay at the cabin very long it wasn't an issue.Would recommend to others? Yes
The house was clean, had a great view of the Park on the top porch and offered a lot of fun if you enjoy pool and old school, multicade system. Not sure if Dollywood has fireworks every Friday night, but if they do, you have a front row seat from the front of the house. They were wonderful.Would recommend to others? Yes
