MATHEWS' MANSION, A COTTAGE BY A MOUNTAIN LAKE

Robbinsville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 3. 1 couch. Dishes, cutlery. Steps to lake.

Long overdue for a lazy afternoon in a hammock? How about a rocking chair overlooking one of the most pristine lakes in the world? At Mathews' Mansion, a small cabin on a lake full of fish, you will find a bit of heaven. No clocks, phones, or TV's, only rest and the rustling of maples. Bring your camera for some great nature shots. Chipmunks, hummingbirds, and raccoons are common visitors. Smoking okay on screened-in porch.

Lake is great for bass, boating, swimming. Santeetlah Marina is only a quarter of a mile. Hike the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest and other lush trails in the region. Take a drive on the breathtaking Cherula Skyway. Nearby streams & rivers are world-famous for fly-fishing, whitewater rafting, kayaking, canoeing, and tubing. Ride the choo-choo from Bryson City to the Nantahala Gorge. Visit a pow wow at the nearby Cherokee Reservation or see the outdoor drama. Try your hand at ruby mining. Go antiquing for quilts & carvings. Cycle, or just relax!

Tail of the Dragon: Mathews' Mansion is close to the Tail of the Dragon, the famous curvy Highway 129, which attracts sports car enthusiasts and cyclists from all over the country. Along Cherola Highway one will view spectacular breathtaking mountain views. For more details visit our website.

Cherokee Artifacts: Did you know that Cherokee artifacts have been found in Lake Santeetlah? Stop at the Cherokee Museum in Robbinsville to see what local residents have found while walking the shores. While there, visit Chief Junaluska's grave site. Take a drive through the Snowbird reservation and picnic at one of the creekside tables. Always keep your eyes open, for you, too, might find a Native American relic!

I loved the cozy cabin on Lake Santeetlah! The cabin is perfect for a romantic couple's getaway or for a small family. The mountains are beautiful.

Great time Mathew's Mansion

We had a great time. The cottage was cleaned and ready when we got there. The owner's directions to the cottage were accurate and easy to follow. The cottage is just the right size for a couple. One main bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and good sized living room. There is a second small bedroom with a single bed. The bed was comfortable. The deck and screened in porch are really the best part of the cottage.
We kayaked on Lake Santeetlah. The cottage is a short drive from a launch site and the forest service swimming area. We brought our own kayak, but there is a kayak on site that can be used.
For meals it is a about 5 miles from the town of Robbinnsvile,NC. Graham County, where the cabin is, is the only dry county left in NC, so if you want wine or beer you can't get it at the restaurants if you want it in your cabin you need to bring it with you.
We would recommend the cottage is couples for a family with one child.
Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review. Should you ever wish to return to Mathews Mansion, I'd like to give you an additional night free. (Four-night stay or more).

A Spiritual Retreat

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 5, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2010
I've vacationed at Marsha's cabin for just about every year for the past 15 years. It's my favorite place to go for a quiet spiritual retreat away from the world. The cabin is nestled in the woods with a beautiful view of Lake Santeelah. My favorite part of the cabin is the screened-in porch. In fact, I typically spend most of my time in the rocking chair on the porch, lost in reverie, reading, watching the hummingbirds, and enjoying the sounds of nature. The sun deck is also a nice place for breakfasting in the morning or sunning in the afternoon. For afternoon naps, nothing beats the hammock hanging between the pine trees beside the cabin. I've never wanted for things to do: I've rafted the Ocohee and Nantahala Rivers several times, enjoyed walking through the nearby Joyce Kilmer reserve, thoroughly enjoyed contra dancing at the John Campbell Folk School in Brasstown NC (check schedules online beforehand), enjoyed nearby Smoky Mountain National Park, and every year I try to take in a Cherokee event and learn more about their history and culture. On a daily basis I look forward to walks around Thunderbird Mountain and daily dips in Lake Santeelah. It just doesn't get much better that that!

In short, I love the area, and I love staying at Marsha's cabin. I can't speak highly enough about it and always leave feeling restored in mind, body, and soul. I highly recommend it.

Right at the Tail of the Dragon, this cottage on Thunderbird Mountain overlooks Lake Santeetlah, which is surrounded by pristine National Forest. Steps make it easy to hop in for a swim or to board your kayak. With the appeal of a cabin, complete with rocking chairs on its screened porch and a hammock ready to hang, this peaceful abode also sports a large deck with benches and two comfy yard recliners. The marina down the street offers boat rentals and water sports equipment. Ten miles in at Robbinsville, see the Native American Museum or a few miles further, you will find white water for fly fishing, rafting, and nature galore. In driving distance to Cherokee, Dollywood, Gatlinburg, and Cades Cove where you will see deer and maybe even a bear.

Notes:
You will love this place. It's the perfect retreat as long as you like being near hemlock and laurel, mountain air, and the flutter of hummingbird wings. Gatlinburg is not far away. Cherokee's close, too. Please bring lots of bath towels because you'll use them after your dip in the lake. There's a sandy beach around the bend of lake, roped off for safe swimming. Or take the steps down to the water in front of your cabin. Mathews' Mansion is on a cul-de-sac. Even non-walkers enjoy walking around the mountain, the next road up, scouting for rabbits, ground hogs, raccoons, and other critters. Community leash law. Come in autumn if you wish to see a spectacular display of foliage.
