About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, Sleeps 18

Fun-filled days and starry nights await you at Starry Nights Lodge, a 5-bedroom, pet-friendly log cabin overlooking woodlands amid the Great Smoky Mountains. Thanks to its position atop a high ridge, when you step out onto one of the house’s decks you’ll feel as if you can almost touch the clouds and the stars.

But while the setting may seem blissfully remote, the location is surprisingly convenient: You can drive to restaurants, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, skiing, shopping, golf, and plenty of other amusement in mere minutes. And in the summer, you’ll have free access to 3 beautifully landscaped pool areas nearby.

Even without hopping in the car, you’ll find plenty to keep you and your group happily entertained at Starry Nights Lodge. The top floor of the 3-story cabin includes a game room equipped with a full-size pool table, a 60-game arcade table, and a flat-screen TV. Between games, you can stretch out on one of the 2 plush futons or catch up with friends at the bar area.

Better yet, head downstairs to one of the 2 outdoor hot tubs. The main-floor deck and the lower-level deck each have a tub of its own. Both are perfectly positioned for optimal views of the mountains—simply breathtaking! And nothing is as romantic as sharing a steamy jetted soak with that special someone under the silvery light of the moon.

The decks are also furnished with rockers and a porch swing so that you can savor the stunning surroundings any time. Because the main deck completely wraps around the cabin, you can watch the sunrise from one side and take in the sunset from the other. And since the decks are covered, you can happily sit outside with a book and a drink even during the midday heat or a shower. What’s more, you can enjoy your meals out on the deck, courtesy of the picnic table. And since you’re dining alfresco, why not cook outside too, on the gas grill?

While we’re on the subject of meals, let’s talk about Starry Nights Lodge’s kitchen and dining area, both of which are on the main floor. The open kitchen is equipped with all the appliances, cookware, and tableware you’ll need, whether you plan to channel your inner Julia Child or simply microwave popcorn for a late-night snack. If you do intend for serve up a feast for family and friends, you’ll appreciate the spacious dining table, which easily seats 10. There’s room for an additional 3 people at the adjacent breakfast bar—the kids will love eating there “by themselves” while the adults enjoy a more leisurely meal.

If the kids commandeer the game room after dinner, the grown-ups can decamp to the main floor’s living room. With its luxe cabin decor—roomy roll-arm seating; Arts and Crafts-style tables; burnished wood-plank floor, walls, and ceiling; a stone-surround gas fireplace—it’s a handsome, comfortable space for watching TV, surfing the web, or playing Scrabble.

The 5 bedrooms are furnished to the same high standard. The 2 bedrooms on the top floor each have a king-size bed; of the 3 bedrooms on the lower level, one has a king bed, one has a queen-sized bed, and the other has a set of queen bunk beds. All 5 bedrooms boast their own private bathroom, a TV, and plenty of storage.

Have additional guests? The game room can sleep up to 4 people—2 on each futon—and the sofa in the living room converts to a bed for another 2. In all, Starry Nights Lodge can sleep 18 people, making it perfect for a family reunion, a ski trip with friends, or a summer vacation with another family.

No matter the occasion or the time of year, when you stay at Starry Nights Lodge a good time will be had by all. See for yourself: Reserve your stay today, and start planning your best vacation ever.

Clean, beautiful, great location, and gorgeous views!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was perfect for us! Kids loved the game room. Plenty of space and very clean! Beautiful views all around! They are not kidding about the bears. We saw one within 2 hours of being there and they came back daily. The “bear proof” garbage bins outdoors are not bear proof. They broke them twice within a few days but maintenance was there early the next day to repair. Would definitely stay here again! (Maybe in the winter when the bears are hibernating.)

Cabin is wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great! The only complaints we had were not really with the cabin it's self. The lower level hot tub had way too many chemicals. We at least knew it was treated, but when we turned on the jets it was like sitting in an Alka Seltzer bath, and the smell burned our noses and hurt our eyes. We couldn't stay in. My skin was so dried out and our swim suits all bleached after one quick dip. Fortunately the one on the main deck was fine so we all enjoyed it. Did have some trouble getting in to the cabin when the door code given to us didn't work. Spent 30 minutes on the phone with JMH while they gave multiple combinations to figure it out. There was no one available in customer service, but the few different people I spoke with in other departments were nice and tried to help, eventually getting us in. I really wish JMH was still locally operated. We used to use them every year and loved them, but as soon as they were purchased by a company in Florida we've had issues. I'm rating the cabin here though and not JMH, and it was wonderful. Our 7th annual trip to be Smokies was another great time! The cabin was clean, comfortable and accommodating and the view was amazing!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review Starry Nights. We apologies for any issue you feel you had on your recent stay. We do want you to that even though Jackson Mountain Homes was purchased by VTrips, we are still locally operated and working hard to exceed our guests expectations. We will look forward to having you stay with us on your next trip to the Smoky Mountains.

Great location, great views, plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our weekend getaway. Heavy snow happened on our trip but they city did such a great job at clearing the roads that it was no issue at all. So convenient to downtown and ober Gatlinburg. We needed up having 13 people and had more than plenty of space. The views from the decks are incredible and we even got to spend some time with both neighbors who were super friendly. All in all would recommend this cabin to anyone. A great trip!!
