Throughout the house, you will be impressed with the great attention that has been paid to details. From the many architectural surprises of the house to the thoughtfully stocked amenities, the house and its setting provide the perfect combination of luxury and comfort.

On the main level, the large living room and dining room with cathedral ceilings boasts a beautiful rock fireplace, Mexican Sautillo tile floors, stained and leaded glass, a wet bar, and two sets of French doors. There is a half bath next to the living room's wet bar. The well-stocked kitchen provides everything a cook could need. In addition to cookware, dishes, and beautiful glassware, the kitchen provides the visiting chef a food processor, blender, hand mixer, and beautiful serving platters and bowls. Wireless DSL

The huge master bedroom, with it's king bed, gas log fireplace, and beautiful bay window, is also on the main floor.

The main level has three decks and a serene screened porch overlooking the waterfall. Just off the screened porch, the deck has both a hot tub and gas grill. Upstairs, you will find two bedrooms both with queen beds, a full bathroom, and a large loft area stocked with over 50 DVD's and many games as well as a full entertainment system. The loft, open to the living room below, also has a queen sleeper sofa.

About Mark

Hi, I am Mark. I love to travel just like you probably do. I feel so lucky and blessed to own this beautiful home and even luckier to get to share it with you. I am involved in real estate (own and rent long and short term rentals). Its a good thing that I am so handy and love to fix things and paint!

Mark purchased this house in 2006

Why Mark chose Big Canoe

My favorite thing is getting to stay at the cabin after some guests have left and reading all the kind, and amazing comments left in the guest book. It feels really good to know that I have brought a little joy and happiness to others!!

A Great Romantic weekday getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i decided to stay a Big Canoe last minute. I spoke with Mark on the phone about my travel plans, he was very polite curtious and proffesional. When we arrived our jaws dropped it was a dream come true. The house is very beautiful and well kept ( shot out to Julie) lol wlit had everything we needed ie. Pots and pans, seasonings, utensils you name it. It even had a pin ball machine and a ton of DVD's just to name a few. The hot tub and waterful was so relaxing and peaceful my wife and i honestly didn't want to leave. We gave it 5 out of 5 stars hands down would recommend to anyone. Great job Mark:)

Couldn't Be Better

  • 5 of 5

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!

Another Amazing Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving week at Shooting Stars in 2012 and had the joy of celebrating again this week. The updates are perfect: new furniture in the loft, Nintendo WiiU, Netflix, you name it. And, the amenities that make this house so special were exactly what we needed, hot tub, beautiful fireplace, ping pong (source of a day long tournament). Mark continues to outdo himself.

25th Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week's stay at Shooting Star Falls! We debated between going to the beach or to the mountains and decided on this beautiful home in Big Canoe. It was definitely a home and not a cabin and we were so impressed with the furnishings and the way it was so beautifully decorated. It was just the two of us and we were able to enjoy quiet mornings with breakfast on the screened in patio listening to the waterfalls before going out on new adventures each day. We could easily have stayed two weeks trying to see everything in the area, but we will have to return. Mark was such a great host and was so accommodating. We couldn't find a corkscrew to open our wine, so he overnighted one to the front door! We felt like we were renting from a friend, and it was so much nicer than going through a company. We would highly recommend this property to anyone that enjoys first class accommodations in a quiet and private setting surrounded by God's natural beauty. We can't wait to go back!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

What an interesting and unique house. There were so many great touches which made it so comfortable What's not to love , sitting in a great hot tub on the porch, with an amazing waterfall that flows right next to the house, and totally enjoying the privacy of nature. We had a wonderful time. I love to cook and the kitchen is fully equipped. There is a lot of great hiking at Big Canoe along with great golf courses plus the bonus, great trout fising. We will definitely be back. After chatting with Mark a few times, I think I have a new found friend. thank you Mark!

Loved Shooting Star Falls!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Shooting Star falls from 4/27/13 to 4/30/13 with another couple. The cabin was awesome, looks even better than the pictures. The DVD collection, pinball machine and various games were a great way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon. The screened porch over looked an amazing waterfall!! On a walk one morning we noticed that most of the cabins have some type of waterfall close by, but none compare to the one at this cabin! We ventured out shopping one day while the guys played golf and there are so many places to go in under 30 minutes. I will definitely stay here again and I recommend it to everyone, young and old!
