Communication was a bit tricky but was likely due to the holiday and light staffing. The house was great. The kitchen was quite sparse. Only 4 forks, spoons and knives. Only 2 small frying pans. A few more kitchen necessities would have been helpful. A large pot for pasta, more silverware, large frying pan, etc.

When we arrived, we walked into a puddle of water in the kitchen. My mom noticed a drop of water in the ceiling so we ran upstairs to see what was going on and we found was the tub full of water as the faucet was not closed all the way so it was dripping into the top cap. That was what was causing the leak downstairs. I immediately called the office and within 15 mins or less they sent someone to come check it. From the start the attention and care was impressive and we appreciate the promptness of the service. While there we had an enjoyable time and we absolutely loved the cabin. The location was perfect and we even got to see a few of the critters roaming around which gave us the full cabin experience. I will definitely look into staying here again when we plan another cabin stay. Thank you so much.

We had a few minor issues during our stay but were able to get them resolved through Supervisor Jennifer. When we first checked in, we reported housecleaning problems. We also discovered later that evening that the satellite was not working. After several phone calls back and forth, Jennifer was able to get everything worked out.

This is the 2nd year we stayed at Timber Tops Cabins. (A Shining Star). The cabin was very clean and 100% ready for us. We checked in and they met our expectations. Due to the virus their office was closed so we checked in and received pass code to open door when we called in. There were 2 incidents that we needed to address. ATT was planned to work inside cabin. No problem management sent a team member to be with them. The next night at 5:30pm a service person came to the cabin to repair the dishwasher. I would let them in because I was not notified of this. Also never In formed a problem with dishwasher. With the virus I know everything changed a lot. These issues I brought up would not stop me from recommending Timber Tops and this Cabin. We have the best views and will stay here a 3 rd time.

Cabin was gorgeous, very clean and elegant looking. We stayed 2 nights and absolutely loved view from master bedroom upstairs. Bed was most comfortable I’ve ever slept in. We will definitely b back!!

Danielle From Meridianville

The cabin was beautiful and the view was beautiful. We could watch the roller coasters run looking over Dollywood. Also, the fireworks Fri/Sat that Dollywood shot off were an added bonus! I do want to clarify that the upstairs is a loft with a kind bed. I thought there would be two separate bedrooms AND a loft with pool table etc. It's all one big room upstairs and 1 king bedroom downstairs. Perfect for 4 people, but would not recommend for more. The pool was at the bottom of the mountain and you had to drive there. The playground was in walking distance, but not real close.

We stayed at A Shinning Starr...as alway we had a great time , love the additional bed upstairs , and the cabin seemed overall cleaner this year, only recommendations I can make it there needs to be a curtain on the window above the stairwell to give privacy from the neighboring cabins balcony and the pool table cover needs attention as well as the pool sticks all needed tips replaced...not complaining just recommending...we had an awsome stay at an awesome cabin!!

Wonderful cabin, easy check in and departure instructions.


Sep 10, 2018


When we arrived the check in was super fast and the lady that helped me was very nice. The cabin was beautiful and very clean as was the grounds outside. The hot tub was amazing, especially with the view and the privacy. The cabin had everything we needed and it was so close to town if we had needed anything. We checked in on Thursday and by Saturday morning we were talking about our next stay at the cabins. We plan on booking another cabin within the next few months for all our family to come stay with us for a family vacation. This was a perfect getaway for the two of us and we loved it. Thank you to everyone at Timber Tops for an amazing experience.

From the booking all the way to check out your staff is always so helpful and patient with me. We walked into the cabin (familiar to us now) and of course it was spotless. We loved every minute of being here. The views are spectacular and we were able to 'check out' of life and relax as we so needed.

Cabin was great as usual...coulpe things owner might need to know. Dishwasher leaks into floor sometimes and cabin could use a real deep cleaning that the regular cleaners don't do. Between boxsprings and rails...deep scrub tiles...ect

The cabin was spotless, the lady at the desk, (I'm sorry, I don't remember her name), was very friendly and helpful. My stay there was exactly what I needed and I will be back! The only drawback was that there should be flat screen tvs in the rooms with HD. Happened to stay there during the Super Bowl and would liked to watch it in HD. But that was a very minor inconvenience. Great Job!!

I was expecting a text or phone call with the door key code as that's what the paperwork said. I had to call once we got to the cabin and get the code. It wasn't a big deal, but would have been nice to had received the info prior to arrival. The cabin was beautiful and clean. Very well maintained and no complaints. The kitchen sink window screen blew off during the wind storm Saturday evening and I retrieved it and placed it on the front deck. Also, there was a lot of water that blew in the back doors on both upper and lower decks as well as dripped down the backwall. You may want to have someone check the seals on the doors and windows. Other than having to wipe up water off the floor on Sunday morning before we left, the overall experience was fantastic. We WILL be back! 🙂

I love the ease of booking, then checking in, and out. I always know when we are using one of the Timber Tops cabins (especially the ones of the Starr group) that we are going to enjoy the very best: in cleanliness, beauty of cabin and all that we need is there waiting for us.

We were pleased overall with our stay. We have stayed at timber tops for several years and always had good experiences. There was two items that I would like to address. The first is a reason we've always loved timber tops which is the cleanliness of the cabins. I have noticed on the last three stays a lot of the detail cleaning seams to be overlooked, I know those cleaning crews are not responsible for deep cleaning but running a broom under the beds and cleaning vomit stains off the bathroom vanity shouldn't be overlooked. The second is a problem we encountered at timber tops properties this stay and a July stay last year as well and a stay with one of your competitors cabins in November of last year. The problem is the disconnect boxes for the hot tubs are being left open with the inner cover removed and exposed 240 volt wires and connectors. I think it may be the guys that are cleaning the tubs pulling the disconnects to clean tub. Coming from a licensed TN electrician PLEASE EDUCATE THE CLEANERS ON HOW TO REPLACE THOSE COVERS WHEN FINISHED CLEANING. This is not a complaining comment just a couple things I have noticed staying with timber tops many times, keep up the good work!

We had a few issues with the automatic lock on the cabin door, but the maintenance men showed up promptly after I called both times. The problem was finally resolved with a new lock. The phone operators were very pleasant and helpful.

excellent and courteous staff. The negative is that even though it was the same name A starry night, it was not the same cabin, new location with a different view. This was very unexpected. We enjoyed the view of the smokey mountains last year however with the new cabin location it was above Dollywood

We thought that the cabin was great. It was very clean and spacious. We also had a great view of the Smoky Mountains. The only thing that was disappointing was that the hot tub was cold and we had to have maintenance come to get it to start heating up. It then took 3 days (almost our entire trip) before it finally got over 100 degrees.

We loved our cabin. My only complaint is being 5 months pregnant and not being able to use the bathroom at the office after driving 5 hours and checking in. But aside from that we had a great view, awesome neighbors and it was peaceful at night.

Our cabin was beautiful and clean. It would've been a total 5 star experience if the second pull out on the top floor would've been useable. The pull out was not in good enough shape for my 10 year old to use. As far as sleeping arrangements, the soft sheets were great but the extra blankets we didn't use. They seemed very worn and rough. We actually purchased blankets for our children to use while we stayed. The cabin said it slept 6 and we had 2 adults and 3 children. Also we only had the tv on probably 3 times but only 1 remote would work the dish in 3 different rooms. This was our first stay in the area. We loved our overall experience and would definitely use timber tops again.

Overall, we did like the cabin and the view. Staying in a cabin overlooking the Smokies is always a must when we visit Tennessee. However, we are disappointed to see the prices rise over the years and the customer service decline. For example, we were told two weeks prior to our stay, that our original cabin was no longer available. We were asked to select another cabin, none of which seemed of the same quality as the original with two bedrooms/beds. We were told we would not be given any type of discount for our inconvenience or downgrade. It seems the company is unwilling to even offer a 10% discount for customer dissatisfaction, just tickets to attractions we've either done a million times or are not interested in at all. Then, when we arrived to the cabin, our locks wouldn't open. We had to wait about 20 minutes in 90-degree heat for a maintenance worker to let us in. We also had a rough experience with Timber Tops and our hot tub last year. A lot of things are out of your control, but it's how you respond to those issues to satisfy your customers, that makes the difference. And, at this point, it doesn't seem like Timber Tops is willing to go the extra mile for a customer who has been coming back for years. So, sadly, we may be looking at other rental companies for our visit next year. I'm very disappointed. I used to recommend Timber Tops to everyone, but now I am hesitant to do so.

It was a very nice, clean cabin. We were disappointed the pool was closed.
