About Tari Furey

We chose Pigeon Forge over several other locations because of the year round FUN that is here! Skiing in Winter, hiking in Spring, swimming and Dollywood in Summer and the magnificent foliage in Fall.

Tari Furey purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Tari Furey chose East

Starr Crest Resort is endorsed by Dollywood Theme Parks as the place to stay!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time and everyone (including guests) thought the lodge and the view were just great. On Monday, we had my wife’s 80th birthday celebration (everyone thinks she is 60) in the morning and our son’s wedding at 5 PM on the main level balcony. It was a great day the Good Lord made.

We would recommend this lodge highly to anyone. Many thanks for suggesting it to us.

Incredible Views

  • 5 of 5

It is a nice property and Tari is great. We had 20 stay and it was a bit tight. 24 would probably be fine with more small kids. We had 3 under 18. The bunk room gets bright and warm early. It is best to keep the ping pong table away from the East side of the deck since the balls will go over board and won't be recoverable down the hill.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, Robert. There used to be screens on the porches to keep those silly ping pong balls from going over but the winds rip those screens down and become unsightly. LOLOL

Fantastic Views & Location from this lodge!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay the Starr Buck Lodge! We had 16 people comfortably stay for 8 days and each and every group felt as if they had their own place to go when needed but loved the community areas to hang out! Although, we spent the bulk of our time at the lodge enjoying the wonderful views from each of the decks...truly the best way to view the Smokies!

The lodge is wonderfully located outside of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We white water rafted, ziplined, golfed, and enjoyed the tourist attractions in the towns and rarely drove more than 20-30 minutes for anything.

Tari was fantastic to work with. We had an issue with the hot tub. Tari responded to my text almost instantly and had a tech there within an hour or two who found the problem and fixed it. We were back in business...Awesome customer service!

Thanks so much from our whole family!!

big and comfy, and BEAUTIFUL views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Starr Buck for a 16-person family reunion, and it totally met our needs and exceeded our expectations. Everyone had great sleeping quarters, and most had bathrooms and access to outside decks with a beautiful view. The main living area had plenty of room for lazing around, and the seating for meals was more than adequate. The outside decks (3 stories of them!!) had lots of seating, and did I mention the beautiful views?? We felt like we were on top of the world. We also had a 90-year-old with a walker, and she was able to maneuver quite well throughout the cabin. Tari provided us information on the surrounding area - places to go and things to do, and was very helpful to work with. Everyone's already talking about going back for the next 2-year reunion! Thanks, Tari, for a beautiful retreat in the mountains.

Beautiful and spacious property nestled on a quiet street

  • 4 of 5

A great stay at Start Buck Lodge! Accomodated 11 adults and 6 children nicely. The dining space was ample and the bedrooms were split up well. The views and deck space were amazing. The street was quiet and secluded. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, the grill was nice to have. Showers were hot for all.

The distance to the pool and playground was a downfall for us. With lots of young children we had to drive to both locations many times, which got old. There is a lack of yard space as well. Maybe we should have expected that on the mountainside:)

Overall we had a wonderful time! The Owner was very responsive with the questions we had. We accidentally left behind some cash and they called to let us know and are mailing it to us! That says a lot for the people taking care of the property as well as the owners! Thanks for being honest people and sharing your home with us!!

Owner's Response: I’m so glad y’all enjoyed the cabin and it’s onsite amenities such as the arcade games, the pool table and the ping pong table. I’m also glad y’all had a wonderful time and any questions you had were answered swiftly. I appreciate the comment about the integrity of our crew as well as the compliment on how we take care of the cabin. We do our best. I am a little perplexed on a 4 star rating however. Since we are such honest people, if a question had been asked prior to booking or even after booking, an honest answer would have been given regarding the location of the pool or not having flat ground in a mountainous area. In this resort, no cabin is near the resort pool and is definitely not within walking distance to it. Even if someone would want to walk down the hill to the resort pool, no one wants to walk back up the hill – especially kids. The pool is within half a mile of the cabin. But keep in mind that a cabin with has such gorgeous views usually is higher than a cabin in a valley. A cabin lying in a valley has limited mountain views and perhaps can have some grassy area for play but lacks a splendid view. Unlike most resorts, there is even a playground in the resort as well located about ¼ mile from the cabin. Again…within walking distance but this is mountainous terrain. I contact each and every one of my guests at booking, offering my cell number and direct email address so that I may be reached. I also call every guest to introduce myself. At any time, I make myself available for any questions or concerns about the cabin, it’s location or its amenities, yet this guest never raised any questions whatsoever. She even complimented me on being very responsive with questions they had. My suggestion to any guest who reserves a cabin on a Book It Now button to contact the owner either prior to or shortly after booking a cabin with a list of your top 3 must-haves and make certain that the cabin meets your specific needs. If having a pool in very close proximity, if available for your dates at booking time, I could have offered you one of our cabins that has a pool inside the cabin. Yet throughout our communications, a nearby pool nor a grassy flat area for kids to play was ever communicated to be to be a high priority item. Sad that this review was a 4 star not because accommodations of the cabin or the resort was less than stellar but rather due to lack of forethought of a mountainous terrain by the guest. :(
