Starry Hope, 3 Bedrooms, Pet Friendly, Game Room, Hot Tub, WiFi, Sleeps 12
Starry Hope is a 3-story log home that can sleep up to 12 people—and several dogs as well (sorry, no cats). It’s packed with amenities that will delight every member of your group. All that, and it’s mere minutes from the attractions of Pigeon Forge; in fact, on summer evenings you can watch the fireworks of Dollywood from your front door.
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 multigame 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.
