JIMBO'S FARM 53 ACRE MOUNTAIN RETREAT WITH TROUT POND

Robbinsville Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4BR Mountains Vacation Rental Robbinsville, North Carolina USA

Nestled on the border of the Nantahala National Forest, in the southern shadows of the

Great Smoky Mountains National Park, you'll find Jimbo's Farm. This 53-acre retreat includes a 110 year-old restored farmhouse with New Metal roof, apple/peach/cherry trees , blueberry bushes, trout pond, and mountain stream running through the entire property. Hughes Net Internet service with wireless router available.

The house is located three miles from downtown Robbinsville's (pop. 770), with a grocery store, gas stations, restaurants, and shops. Within a short drive are many activities including white-water rafting, horseback riding, trout streams, Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, Lake Santeetlah, the Tsali Bike Trail, Fontana Dam and the Appalachian Trail.

The farmhouse includes a master bedroom with a gas fireplace, two upstairs lofts, a bathroom, full kitchen, a living room with a pot-belly stove, a porch with rocking chairs overlooking the pond, and a beautiful mountain vista.

The out-building next to Main House includes an extra bathroom with shower, washer and dryer, Queen Bed, and a twin bed that you can use at no charge. ( so you can't complain ) Great for kids or the Uncle that snores.

The spring-fed water supply is absolutely wonderful. Amenities include a satellite dish, TV, a 5.1 surround-sound system, phone, full kitchen, refridge with Ice maker, Microwave, etc.....

Springtime arrives in early March when the old growth trees begin to green, and daffodils start to bloom. By summer dogwood, laurel, wild azaleas, and rhododendron are in full glory. Gentle summer temperatures rarely reach 80 degrees Fahrenheit, while nights drop into the high 50's. The fall colors in this rural setting make for the most spectacular viewing.

Musician that has run Spectrum Recording Studios in South Florida for 30 years.

Jim Kalamasz purchased this farmhouse in 1998

Enjoyed this part of the country for many years. Friends bought the Blue Boar Lodge & invited me up to visit. Thought it was a good time to find the light at the end of tunnel, that was not a train.

Best place to get away from the pressures of big city life. Great place to write music, hang with friends, and work harder that I do at studio.

This Place is Awesome

Hey man! Just wanted to touch base before we head out tomorrow. We've had a great time over the last week, and feel really relaxed and refreshed. Spent most of the day wandering around here cuz of the rain, and it felt good to just kick back and watch it happen.

Is there anything that we should do before we take off? Where should we leave the keys?

Jim,
I wanted to let you know what a terrific time we had at your place last week. It was exactly what the description stated it would be. The dogs had as much fun as we did in fact it took them a couple of days to recover after we returned home. We took advantage of several local activities while we were their including the Zip Line in Andrews, rafted the Nantahala, rented a pontoon boat at Fontana and took the dogs with us, walked on the A.T. and went mountain bike riding at Tsali. All those were great but we really enjoyed waking up to the view of the pond with the mountains in the background, sitting on the various porches, sitting around the fire at night, shooting our guns (not excessively) and my youngest son really enjoyed fishing and feeding the fish especially the huge carp. We kept 2 trout and enjoyed them for dinner one night. We did not see the fish feed initially so we bought a bag at the feed store. Later we found the bag in the trash can in the other house.
We will definetly consider your place in the future for time away from home.
It was a full week that my family will always remember.
Thanks again for allowing us to bring the dogs.

Jim,

Just wanted to say that we had a wonderful time at Jimbo's Farm! The weather could not have been better (cold at night and great star gazing!), the men enjoyed hunting (my husband actually spotted 3 grouse - did not get to shoot them), and they played pool one night. Loved looking around the farm and enjoyed the house. The men also fished (those are some big trout!) and shot clays. What a great get away! Thanks for having us and we hope to come back again soon!

P.S.

John and I did not leave until noon on Sunday b/c he went out hunting again but We stripped the sheets and I washed out sheets and put them in the dryer and wahsed the towels (but did not have time to dry them) and I swept, put up the dishes, cleaned out the fridge, and took out the trash...so, hopefully, Carolyn did not have too much to do!

Quiet & Fun Stay at Jimbo's Farm

Quiet & Fun Stay at Jimbo's Farm

Hi Jim,
We are back in Atlanta and everything is so noisy here after the peace and quiet of your farm. We had a really wonderful stay. The farm house is charming and very comfortable and the property is beautiful.We made it to Joyce Kilmer which was amazing and drove part of the skyway where we took lots of photos. I did some shopping at the native American store but was disappointed that Snowbird Trading Post and Beckies Jams were closed (it must be off season for them). Didnt make it toYellow Branch Cheese, we will save that for next time. We took a long walk down the path you told us to take and enjoyed the woods and stream . Also gazed at the log cabin. What a great old place ! Really neat!!
We loved sitting on the porch and watching your geese and babies. You had two pairs of new geese that tried to land at your pond but Papa Goose quickly ran them off. Saw the muskrat also.On Friday Lee caught a huge trout ( 17 inches I think). We released him because it was BBQ night. Lee said that if we had caught him on Thursday he would have fed the two of us by himself (he was that big). Well I could go on and on but I think you get an idea of what a really fun and wonderful time we had. We are thankful that you share such a great place. We will try to get back soon , maybe high summer or fall.Ill be in touc as soon as we can plan. Thanks again for everything !

Hey Jim!
We had a great time as usual. The weather was beautiful. Wanted to let you know that one of our friends had to make an emergency long distance phone call on your phone because none of our cell phones would work. Please let us know when the bill comes in and we'll send you a check for the call. Sorry for this inconvenience (we didn't know he had done it until after the fact).
Thanks again for sharing your beautiful house with us.

Local Activities. One of the finer points of Graham County is the seclusion and natural settings. But there are a wide range of activities that visitors can take advantage of:

* National Forests - There are several National Forests within a short drive of Jimbo’s Farm. Take a seldom hiked trail to a crystal clear waterfall. Hike to a mountain top for a quiet picnic. A photographers paradise around every bend in the trail.

* Whitewater Rafting - The nearby Nantahala River offers whitewater rafting for the entire family. The Ocoee, a few hours distant, provides a wilder ride on the 1996 Olympic whitewater course for the more adventurous.

* Horseback Riding - Make your reservation at the Lonesome Dove Stables for a guided tour of the mountains on horse back.

* Road Tours - Drive the Cherohala Skyway for some of the most scenic views in the entire Appalachians. For those seeking more excitement, try the Tail of the Dragon with 318 curves in 11 miles
