  • 2 week getaway

    "A beautiful large home with modern appliances and a million dollar view. Really enjoyed the open and closed decks especially early morning and evenings. We took advantage of the amenities at Big Canoe including the tennis, hiking trails swimming pool.Don't have to go far to find good food and entertainment."

  • Extended weekend getaway in February

    "This was a very nice place to stay for our weekend getaway. The house was nicely decorated, and had all the amenities you would want. The beds were comfortable and the rooms big. With two people and our short stay we didn't use much of the house or the ammenities, however we had a great time, played pool, had lots of laughs, and spent the evenings out on the quiet private deck with an amazing sky full of stars. Breakfast in the morning on the screen in porch gives you views for miles. We spoke to Mark the owner on a few occasions before arriving in the late evenning and he was very courteous, very nice, and accommodating....thank you Mark! I/we recommend Stargazer Lodge if you are a couple or if you have a large group or family. You won't be disappointed and there is plenty of room for all of you at a nice and comfortable location with a great view. Enjoy! We did, and we will be back!!"

  • Christmas Vacation

    "Our family all met here from various parts of the Southeast for our Christmas vacation. We all arrived late Christmas evening, weary from driving most of the day. However, we were elated that the home was so beautiful and the accommodations so comfortable. We had fires in the evening while cooking most of our meals there in the well appointed kitchen. The large dining table was perfect for enjoying all of our meals together, especially our chili competition. We loved the extra space so if we wanted to watch different football games or movies, we had separate areas for doing so. We took a nice ride to Helen, GA one day and would have liked to drive to Blue Ridge but we ran out of time (but the option was there because of the central location). The resort area was quiet and we mostly enjoyed hiking around the lake. There were trails for all levels, from easy to hard, which really pleased us so everyone could go- even my sister who had recent knee surgery. The sliding rock looked like it would be so much fun, as did several other warm weather activities all within walking distance. We would love to return to this beautiful place for a summer vacation as well. Thanks so much to Ron for all of his help with planning!"

  • Couldn't Be Better

    "Before returning to reality of life following the holiday break this past weekend, my wife and I took our boys (ranging in age from 8-17) to the Big Canoe property for the first time and could have not been more surprised and pleased with both the Shooting Star residence and entirety of the facilities available. I have lived in North Alabama all of my life and unfortunately was completely unaware of such a majestic and exquisite place. The creek and waterfall beside the home are simply a feature that can not be replicated or manufactured unnaturally, which provide a truly indescribable sense of calm and peace (even with three 8 year-old boys). The furnishings were more than just comfortable and appropriate, but exemplified a feeling of mixing old and new, personality and expression without a feeling of intrusiveness, and comfort without stuffiness. Happily, I can say that over the years I really don't remember staying in another rental (especially with children) where at least one instance arose during the stay in which I had a feeling the owner had failed to provide some form of appropriate amenities-especially in the kitchen-which I can unequivocally say did not occur at this home. From the WiiU (which my boys have decided they are going to pool their Christmas money and purchase in addition to their Xbox), hot tub, master bedroom, loft, chess space, ability to have music throughout the home, fireplace, ping pong, etc., the RETREAT could not have been more of a TREAT for our family!
