  • Girls weekend away

    "We were so glad we choose the Retreat for our girls weekend away. Not only is the house beautiful, in a great location on the Big Canoe property, but it has every amenity possible. The owners are easy to work with, quick to respond and go the extra mile for your comfort and enjoyment. We absolutely loved it here, there was 7 of us "Red Hatters" and we had all the room we needed, a beautiful and high end kitchen to take turns cooking in, and 5 bathrooms. We went to Gibbs Gardens 15 minutes from this property and it was absolutely spectacular if you are the nature or outdoorsy type. Thank you Rex for letting us spend the weekend in your exceptional home, you will probably be hearing from me again in the future."

  • From the Shoals

    "Great mountain home. We needed a place for children, aunts, cousins etc and this house fit the bill. Very well maintained. Like new condition. My mom is an interior designer and was very complimentary of how the house was furnished and decorated. David Sharp was excellent to work with and handled everything in a professional manner. We will definitely request him and this house for our next trip."

  • Family get together

    "The house is very nice and big. The pictures does not do it justice. We had to get accustom to the layout so we wouldn't walk in circles!!!! also lots of light switches so you have to play with them to figure out which goes where. Plenty of towels for everyone. Showers where nice. Beds were very comfy. Kitchen had plenty of silverware, plates and pots and pans. Very quiet and serene. Road are curvy and narrow so if you have a big truck it will be tight even in the driveway. Just a few things is one of the bedroom ceiling wasn't finished and it was right under the kitchen so the ice machine woke us up a lot and as soon as some one was awake the floors creaks too. That needs to be sound proof and finished. I would add ceiling fans in ALL the bedrooms as it gets really hot in most of them and cold in just one or 2 (AC needs to be re balanced). Also would have been nice to have more then 5 soap for the dishwasher as when you have 15 people eating at every meal it will run 3 times a day. Some of the info needs to be updated such as it says there is 2 canoes but there is only one and the life vest did not fit anyone in our group (kids or adults). If i would have known that there was recycling at the gate we would have separated our trash, that needs to be mentioned too. We saw a momma black bear and her 3 cubs which was scary....please let guests know they might see black bears!!! Overall I would recommend it to everyone i know !!!!!"

  • Fantastic Retreat - like vacationing in heaven!!

    "We pick a location every year for our girls vacation and this year decided we would try out a stay in the mountains. We came across "Stargazer Lodge" and knew this is where we had to stay. To say that this home DID NOT DISAPPOINT is an understatement. It was absolutely beautiful and impeccable as the description offers. The amenities were such that we never wanted to leave! We played pinball, pool, foosball, etc., we stay on the back deck for hours talking, we sat around the large windows in the living room during the evenings talking and laughing, we made delicious meals and on and on and on. The home is clean, well maintained and offers nicer amenities than I have at my disposal at home! Mark, the owner, was very kind and offered his services prior to our arrival. I would highly recommend this property to anyone needing time away from the hustle and bustle of today's world!! Big Canoe, where it is located, is like no other location. We went hiking, swimming, kayaking, etc. right there as the area offers everything you need without having to leave the entrance! I could go on and on but to conclude this was well worth it in every way and I am positive we will be back! Lori Kiel"
