Wonderful house!
Love the open floor plan - great for friends and families. Had everything we needed and more. Beds and linens soft and comfy, game room was great, used the hot tub 2x a day. Great hiking near by. Owner very responsive to questions. Highly recommend!

Peace and quiet!!! Beautiful view!!
We made last minute vacation plans and found this awesome cabin. We’ve always wanted to go to Helen and finally got that opportunity. Enjoyed the comforts of this cabin and the huge kitchen. This cabin had everything we needed. Owners were very quick in answering any questions we had. Would highly recommend this place.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect Birthday Adventure
The Red Star Lodge is a beautiful place to stay. We rented the house for my son's birthday adventure and we were not disappointed. The house was the perfect gathering place for our family. Lots of fun and adventure to be found! House was clean and well stocked. The owner was quick and responsive with communication. We would highly recommend the Red Star Lodge and hope to stay again in the future!

5/5 Excellent

Great place to relax. Totally enjoyed our stay and highly recommend.
Everything went as expected and Linda was very responsive to any questions we had.

5/5 Excellent

Met and exceeded expectations
Spent a week at Red Star Lodge. Loved it and would definitely book again. We were familiar with the area from previous stays at Unicoi State Park and I much preferred this lodge to camping! Wonderful area with lots of great places to visit and hike. The home was spacious and beautiful with awesome views of the sunsets. Kitchen had everything you could need. Beds/mattresses were comfortable and having three fulls bathrooms was a plus. A fireplace on both floors was super nice. The small negatives (which were by no means a deal breaker) were 1) that the house is noisy even when you are trying to be quiet for those still sleeping, and 2) that the WiFi was rather slow. Truly, having a poor internet connection was a plus as we were there to spend time with people, not machines! Overall a five star vacation rental!
