My brother and I (both in our 60s) only met 7 years ago and had never had a vacation together. We decided to come to the Smoky Mountains. Shooting Star Ridge made this a perfect week - so beautiful and breathtaking. Hope to return again some day!

We arrived about an hour before check-in. When we called to see if we could go in the cabin, the staff was very friendly and helpful. We loved the cabin. It was in a great location, clean and beautiful. The views were perfect. Everything was perfect at this cabin. We didn't find ourselves wanting anything else to make our vacation perfect. The deck area where the table and chairs are is so great. We sat out there almost all of the time. It offers comfort and great views. Also the hot tub. It was very new and clean and had a lot of jets. Perfect after hiking all day.

We made our inquiry and had our reservation confirmed within a few hours. We had decided to take a last minute trip to the Smoky's and we were fortunate to find a property that fit our needs perfectly considering it was a holiday weekend! All of the information provided by GSCR was detailed and timely. They followed through with a call to ensure all was good after we arrived at the property. Thank you. This cabin was exactly what we wanted! Close enough to town but what seemed miles away at the same time. This cabin is nestled high up on a mountain side in a community with several similar cabins. There is ample privacy from among the other homes and we felt this cabin had the best location because it was positioned highest on the mountain side. This cabin is nestled along side of a mountain so there is not a lot of open flat space (only important if you want flat yard space for kids to run around). Highly recommend this property!
