Reach for the Shooting Star!
What an amazing experience! This Thanksgiving my family decided to do something different. We wanted to celebrate this sacred holiday with close loved ones while being away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Shooting Star was exactly what we needed and had imagined. When we arrived at Big Canoe, the scenic views and natural aromas made everyone feel immediately relaxed. Then to top it all off, we were welcomed by the fragrance of peppermint upon entering the Shooting Star home. This property was just right for our group of six which included two couples, a grandparent and a very happy little guy. Shooting Star is a beautiful property with great space and loads of comfort. When we weren't feasting on fantastic holiday foods (which were prepared by a great grill, stove and oven and stored in a spacious refrigerator), we were napping the extremely comfortable beds, enjoying the warmth of the fire place, playing pinball (bring your quarters) or immersing ourselves in the soothing hot tub--our son's favorite! The Wi-Fi worked well and allowed us to capitalize on some great Black Friday sales and occasionally check on life back home. If you enjoy shopping, it is also about a half hour drive to North Georgia Premium Outlets. Needless to say, we will differently be back. If you decide to come here, be sure to drive slowly. Although it provides beautiful views, the roads can be a bit windy and steep. The directions can be a bit tricky, but the security guards at the North Gate are very helpful and will even provide a map. Our advice, once you enter Big Canoe, just take your time and Shooting Stars, a.k.a. relaxation, is just a few minutes away. Lastly, Mark, the owner, is absolutely fantastic. Excellent communication and a genuine desire to ensure that our experience was amazing.
