Couldn't be happier with the comfort, space and location. Beautiful home had everything we needed and more that we didn't think we would need. Definitely a vacation without intending it to be. GSCR was very accommodating and understanding in our situation. We were evacuated for the Hurricane, we loved the location and the view.

My wife and I had the best vacation EVER thanks to this cabin. We've rented houses dozens of times, and taken numerous vacations. But this one was the best. The beauty of the cabins was far superior. However, after interacting with the staff and them treating me like a king..well...there's no other option for future rentals. We loved our accommodations so much we wanted to stay another day. I called after hours on a saturday. Phone was answered on the first ring. Thankfully no one had booked it, but exceptions were made, and we were able to stay one more night...thus making the whole trip for us MUCH more enjoyable. We came for REST!! We enjoyed morning coffee on the deck under that beautiful gazebo. Mid-day naps in the silence of the woods. Evening Margaritas in the hot tub overlooking spectacular views of the Smokys Your staff was there when I called. Every time, and answered all of my questions.

The cabin more than met my expectations. For someone wanting a true log cabin experience, this cabin is the place. The craftmanship was exceptional, the rustic furnishings and interesting wall decorations added to the experience, yet it had every modern convenience anyone would need. The view was incredible, the privacy from neighboring cabins was exceptional, and the hot tub had stronger jets and more angles to hit your muscles than any hot tub I have ever been in before. I would encourage anyone to take advantage of nearby water activities. My wife and I had never been white water tubing or white water rafting till doing so at Deep Creek and the NOC center. We thoroughly enjoyed our 45th wedding anniversary at Shooting Star Ridge.

We had the pleasure of spending our 45th wedding anniversary in your wonderful cabin. I was not prepared for how wonderful the cabin was or how high up it was to provide for the amazing view. Loved the rustic furnishings. Loved the total log cabin feel.

We loved Shooting Star Ridge cabin. The drive is uphill a bit. Spoke to a couple of different ladies in the office when researching rentals. They we're all very polite & helpful. We stopped by their office when we were in town, looking for advice on things to do, dining out suggestions, etc. We were greeted by 3 smiling ladies who offered us many suggestions.
