“Above it All”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We rented Above it All. The view was of the city and you could hear the rides, screams and train from Dollywood. The whistle from the train shook our windows. The cabin was nice and it is at the top of the resort. The pool was open and the area is great as always.

Room Tip: If you want to see the Big Wheel and the lights of Pigeon Forge and Sevierville this is a great cabi...

This cabin is near the top of the mountain and overlooks a valley and some mountains behind that. You can see part of the Tennessee Tornado roller coaster at Dollywood and hear a faint whistle from the Dollywood train. At night you can see the lights from the strip including the Ferris Wheel at the Island.

The view changes constantly and produces some really nice sunsets as the back of the cabin faces west.

The cabin itself was clean for being a rental. It is the only cabin that is a one bedroom but has 3 beds. It has a master on the first floor with a king, another king on the second floor that is in with the game room and then a spiral set of stairs to a loft with a full bed.

It has a pool table, arcade game, foosball, and air hockey.

There are 3 flat panel TVs in the cabin. The one upstairs didn't work the first three days but they replaced it with a new LG.

The kitchen is small but will do. You have some pots and pans and basic utensils. The measuring spoons are missing the actual text on them so you have to guess at the measurements. The dining room table can only seat 4 so if you need more you'll need to sit in the couch or use the bar table upstairs with two more seats.

2 decks facing the mountains with a few seats on each level. The first level has a swing. The second level has a hot tub which broke but they came and fixed.

In the master there is no room for a dresser. There is a closet but weird there isn't a dresser. A flat panel tv hangs over the see through fireplace into the den.

The master isn't real private because of the see through gas fireplace.

The upstairs has the large soaking tub with jets and some wooden shutters you can open to see out into the mountains. I was surprised that the tub was actually clean and so were the jets.

Overall I think this cabin has some of the best uninstructed views. You get to see the city at night and mountains in the background. The price is lower on this cabin because it is only a one bedroom but remember you actually get 3 large beds. It was perfect for us and two kids.

Things weren't perfect with the tv, hot tub and some other minor things but the office fixed them quickly. The photos on their website make it look larger because of how they stretched the photos.

This cabin company doesn't clean daily like some others so be prepared to wash towels and buy paper towels and toilet paper.

This was our second stay with Starr Crest Resort. Outrageous cabins offer spectacular views that you can't get anywhere else. Can't wait to go back! Highly recommended!!!!! Fall break can't come soon enough!

The cabin was furnished nice and was clean but you are not really high on a mountain, you can hear the roads from the inside. There was NO internet and no one told us that until we checked in. There is a cabin right next to you, which is not in the pictures in their website. The bedroom upstairs is not very private it's more like a loft. The bed was pretty comfortable, and the hot tub was nice. Games were pretty fun also.

All in all, my stay wasn't horrible but I like to feel more secluded and I definitely need internet for the price of the cabin.

This was my second time staying with OC and I am satisfied again. Views were great in this cabin, you can see the mtns and the city lights at night. This cabin was about halfway up the mtn, with cabins on either side.

Everything in this cabin was clean and updated. The game room had air hockey, pool table, and 40+ arcade games.

The only downside to this cabin, and why I gave it four stars, was one: the first floor bedroom had no dresser or nightstands in the room, just a king sized bed. I just think it would be nice to have a place to unpack and set your phone, glasses, remote, etc when you lay down. Two: when I opened the dishwasher to load dishes, the inside was filthy from renters before me. After loading it, I proceeded to start it and realize it didn't even work. Hopefully that issue will get resolved soon for future renters. I left a comment on the paper the office gives you for suggestions/concerns.

Other then those two minor issues, I am satisfied with my stay again, as cleanliness is a huge deal for me like it is for most of you.

One last thing: They were calling for a good amount of snow while I was there. I asked the office how the resort roads were when it snowed, and they said they were maintained well. Before the storm came, the roads were salted, however I left before the snow, so I'm not sure how they were after.

Thanks again OC!

My family of 5 stayed this past weekend in the cabin, "A Touch of Class". Upon arrival we saw tons of cabins and hoped we would have one that was facing the mountain and not another cabin (do your research, some of the cabins have much better views than others) as we went up the mountain we finally reached our cabin and it was in a great spot. Once the doors opened we were pleasantly surprised. The cabin was beautiful. The living room looked a lot bigger in the website's picture but it was still a good size, the upstairs was the best part though! The master bedroom/game room made this cabin well worth the money! It had a pool table, arcade game table with well over 40 classic favorites such as frogger, pac-man, etc., air-hockey, and a HUGE king sized bed which was extremely comfortable, and a very nice electric fireplace. The bathroom was also to-die for. It had a huge jetted tub and a towel warmer. Now, for the best part... the view! The balcony overlooked the mountain and at night the view was out of this world with the city lights in the distance. Overall, this cabin was exactly what we wanted. My only suggestion would be to bring your own pillows and extra towels especially if you intend on using the hot-tub.
