Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4
Look for Shooting Stars and Dream of Tomorrow's Adventures!
With mountain views, mountain air, and mountain memories, this 2 bedroom log cabin has a prime location just outside of Cherokee, approximately 10 minutes or less from Bryson city, night life at Harrahs Casino, the Oconaluftee Indian Village and many more attractions. Every detail has been thought of to make your vacation spectacular.
After a day of enjoying plenty of outdoor activities, come home and relax in your private mountain cabin. Take in the warmth of the all wood interior lit by the warm glow of the fireplace.
Whip up meals in the well equipped kitchen – complete with Belgain waffle maker. If you don’t feel like cooking, we recommend trying Brio Tuscan Grille or Ruth’s Chris Steak House at the casino.
At Shooting Star Ridge stay connected – enjoy the wireless internet, free long distance, and Satellite HDTVs and Blu-Ray Players.
Dreams are sure to come - each of the two bedrooms have a king sized bed.
Enjoy the breathtaking mountain views and spacious deck areas, which include a covered gazebo for sitting and outdoor dining. Relax in the full sized hot tub. Venture out to the cobblestone paver patio to enjoy the fire pit area.
We’ve heard that wishes come true when made on shooting stars at this delightful cabin -- Shooting Star Ridge.

A real Star in the Sky!!!
Cabin is everything the listing says. It is clean and seems to be a new cabin(couple of yrs maybe). It is in a gated community so there are several other cabins in sight but none right on top of you. There are only 2 farther up the mtn. and you have plenty of privacy. Lots of nice little touches- flat screens, wi-fi, marked light switches, heated floor in master bath. When we arrived the Christmas tree was already lit- thought that was a nice touch. The hot tub was probably the nicest we've ever had- about 40 jets and led lights. Has a great open view down and to the moutains back along the parkway. Can just catch a glimpseof the cars to/from the parkway and 441. Did I mention it is easy to get to? Just about 2 miles from the exchange for the parkway and 441. Dollar General right there for any little things you need. And 10-15 minutes to Cherokee and the Casino. Nice covered gazebo with table for dining when the weather is right. Road is paved all the way to cabin and parking area around the cabin is paved as well. Stone around the back side to firepit and hottub and deck all the way aroyund the front side. The driveway is steep though- probably need 4wd for snow/ice. A great place to relax and we enjoyed the stay. I would imagine it is most beautiful in the fall or snow.
