Beautiful mountain lodge with every amenity desired

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful four night stay in this mountain lodge. Our children loved the ping pong table, jacuzzi, games and fire pit. Our golden doodle enjoyed her vacation with us. My husband and I loved all the comforts of home; great kitchens, grill, WiFi and great bed. We also loved the beautiful view. We would definitely stay here again.

Excellent Property!

  • 5 of 5

The view out the wall of windows when we first stepped inside took our breath away. It was beautiful!

The home was clean, well stocked with kitchen supplies (cutting boards, pots/pans, utensils, and even TWO slow cookers!), and so welcoming. The linens and beds were comfortable. The fluffy blankets for lounging with a hit with my children.

Only small suggestion I’d make is for a set of spare pillowcases in the main floor bedroom, so if you need to use the spare pillows, they can be covered with a case.

We hope to return to this home again in the future. It was a great place to spread out, relax, and spend a week!

Great place for the extended family! We all loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our two kids and both sets of grandparents and had a wonderful time. Both young and old enjoyed the house. We would definitely stay there again if we are back in the area. The owner was easy to work with as well. Thanks for a great stay!

Wonderful home! So much attention to detail❤️

  • 5 of 5

We did a surprise for my husbands 75th birthday at this beautiful home. 3 families and more then enough room for all of us! The home was immaculate with incredible views and th attention to detail was so appreciated.... from soft squishy blankets to lounge with to the sticks readily available for marshmallows. We loved the fire pit and spent a lot of time in the hot tub relaxing. The lower level was perfect for my daughters family with 2 small children. The kitchen had everything we needed to stay home and cook which is so unusual for house rentals... and so very appreciated!

We are planning to stay again in this warm and welcoming home!

The Red Star Lodge is centrally located to all that the Northeast Georgia mountains have to offer. Within 10 minutes or less you will find the towns of Helen (8 miles), Sautee (3 miles) and Clarkesville (9 miles) and Unicoi State Park (8 miles). You may find so much to do here that you may not travel any further. But within 20 minutes you will find the towns of Cleveland (12 miles) and Cornelia (15 miles) and the Lake Burton area (12 miles). Again activities are numerous, but maybe on your fourth or fifth day you are ready to explore more . Within about 30 minutes you will find the towns of Clayton (30 miles) and Hiawassee (30 miles) and Tallulah Gorge (25 miles) and Moccasin Creek (20 miles) State Parks. Or you may find a rocker on the main level deck or the hot tub on the lower deck to be the perfect location for you, so be sure to save time maybe on days six or seven to just relax.
