WONDERFUL VACATION HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We picked this property because it was close to the activities we were going to do and it looked great on the web. Whitewater rafting was one hour away, zip lining and tubing within ten minutes, and horseback riding within five minutes.
The pictures of the home are a good indication of what you are going to get. Spacious bedrooms and living areas, and the downstairs game room was great for kids. The owners were wonderful and easy to deal with. I highly recommend renting this home if you are staying in the area!

RELAXING OPEN VACATION

  • 5 of 5
From beginning to end, this was a wonderful vacation experience. The home is lovely and is exactly as described. The owners have gone to great lengths to make it an easy experience. Directions were great for location, the house, alarm, tv, etc. They came across truly caring that we had a good time and had everything we needed. It was so easy to get to Helen and the surrounding areas. I think this is a great set up for three couples, each having their own bathroom and privacy.
LOVED the little dog that adopted us for the week, we all wanted to bring her home with us.
Many thanks to the owners for sharing their home with us.

A WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY! HOPE TO RETURN.

  • 4 of 5
This was the perfect place for our group of 8 which included my husband, my mother-in-law, and my son and his wife and three little boys. The young family had the lower level which was perfect. The main floor was huge and open so we enjoyed preparing meals and all being able to interact and the view from the deck was great. We did have to finish off some scorpions that were in the process of dying which we were a bit concerned about, and we also had to clear the driveway of garbage as the people before us must not have secured the lid on the garbage can. Also there were pizza crusts under the lower level beds and their was a rail on the main balcony that had come loose which was dangerous and we did not find a hammer so we just kept the kids away. We loved the area and we enjoyed going for walks up and down all the hills. My dog loved it also and we all met the neighborhood dogs too. Loved all that it was near and explored quite a bit. Went tubing and to Anna Ruby Falls.Also enjoyed the drive on scenic 197 and downtown Clarksville and Sautee shops. All in all, it is a beautiful place and we are hoping to go back again.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The record rainfall over the past few months has made scorpions worse than ever, but the pest control has treated the house several times and most all of those found have been dead. We are located in a very wooded area near national forests. A family of bears has been seen in the area and any trash left unattended is very popular with the bears. We have tried to have additional trash pick-ups between guest to limit the time trash is in the can. We have also added straps to secure the lid. The cleaning crew has been notified of the overlooked pizza crust and repairs have been made to the deck.

WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Great vacation at the Red Star Lodge. The owners were very quick to reply to any questions before reserving and the process was simple.

The lodge was beautiful and had every needed for our visit. My family enjoys cooking which was easy in the kitchen that had nearly everything we could need and very well laid out. Every utensil we needed was there.

The area is beautiful and really enjoyed being in the mountains and wooded area all around. The home is easy to get to with paved roads all the way.

Enjoyed the many game options and game room on the lower level.

Towels and other supplies were well stocked. Appreciated the towels not being cheap hotel towels.

One thing that we were not expecting was the loft master bedroom. The information says "balcony" master bedroom and we did not understand that as an open loft. It was still really nice though.

The neighborhood dogs did come to visit. There were dog treats in the cupboard which we gave them and got more for the next guest.

Enjoyed the fire pit and grill.

Wonderful week and great place to relax and get away from the business of daily life. Would recommend this cabin to anyone!

FABULOUS FIFTY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This lodge was excellent for our girl's weekend. We decided to love, laugh, and relax in the Ga Mountains & it could not have been more fabulous. It was 10 ladies from College that have remained friends for over 30+ years. The lodge had everything we could ask for and more. The kitchen and game room were our main meeting areas. The kitchen was equipped with the needed cookware. The beds was comfortable and large enough for all. This weekend however, was not so great. It was misty raining for the most of Friday, however, we had schedule a tour with Smithgall on Sat. and it was great. Sunday was check out time and we hated to leave. If you want a clean, well-maintained property for your family, friends, co-workers, etc. this is the ideal lodge. The listing description was very accurate regarding the location, layout, and the amenities. On Friday night, we had problems lighting the gas fireplace and the owner Keith did not hesitate to call me back to see what concerns we had. He provided excellent customer service even though he had a family emergency, however, he was able to come over early that next morning to ensure our needs were meet. We had scheduled to dine out at The Dillard House on Friday night and it was a great family restaurants (buffet style) that was superb. We meet three ladies at
"The Dillard House" who were very nice and they shared that they were on their girlfriend weekend as well. Theses ladies had retired and they remained very close and they get together monthly since retiring. They are enjoying life after retirement. We really enjoyed our stay in the Great Mountain and especially at this beautiful lodge. We will definite plan our next trip and all have agreed we will return soon. Our next stay will be for at least one week.

The Red Star Lodge is centrally located to all that the Northeast Georgia mountains have to offer. Within 10 minutes or less you will find the towns of Helen (8 miles), Sautee (3 miles) and Clarkesville (9 miles) and Unicoi State Park (8 miles). You may find so much to do here that you may not travel any further. But within 20 minutes you will find the towns of Cleveland (12 miles) and Cornelia (15 miles) and the Lake Burton area (12 miles). Again activities are numerous, but maybe on your fourth or fifth day you are ready to explore more . Within about 30 minutes you will find the towns of Clayton (30 miles) and Hiawassee (30 miles) and Tallulah Gorge (25 miles) and Moccasin Creek (20 miles) State Parks. Or you may find a rocker on the main level deck or the hot tub on the lower deck to be the perfect location for you, so be sure to save time maybe on days six or seven to just relax.
