Robbinsville Lodge Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, (plus loft), 3 full baths, sleeps 2 to10 comfortably

Welcome to the woods. Come and spend your vacation at a very special place, The Lodge at High Frontier. It is situated on 21 VERY private acres, surrounded by lush forests and overlooking a mountain stream. A large outdoor room overlooks an unspoiled mountain view. The custom built real log lodge is fully equipped with every thing you need to make your stay stress-free and easy. It has four bedrooms and three baths and a sleeping loft. Bring you family and friends and relax in real comfort. The living space is furnished with leather couches and hand built log table and chairs. We furnish all the linens so you walk into a lodge ready to use. The large hot tub comfortably seats seven and is situated at the back of the lodge in a private woodland setting. You can hike, mountain bike, or ride your ATV right from the front door for miles on old logging roads that run next to a large trout stream and through thousands of acres of wild mountain forest.

We do everything we can to 'pamper and spoil' our guests in a friendly, warm atmosphere. Come and make wonderful, priceless memories with family and friends. Brad and Ginger

An awesome lodge!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the lodge and will consider returning at some point in the future. When we arrived the cabin was open and brownie bites prepared by Ginger were waiting in the cookie jar (they were delicious). When I write a review I like to explain to future guest what to expect and that’s the theme of this review. If anything seems critical that’s not the intent, just want to give a good review.

Downstairs

Large family room with gas fire logs that heat the house nicely. The TV network is Directv and it worked without any issues. The kitchen is large for a cabin and we enjoyed cooking all our meals. There is one bathroom downstairs along with 2 bedrooms (one king and one queen). The beds upstairs and down were very comfortable. The washer and dryer are in the bathroom and worked without issues.

Upstairs

There are two bedrooms upstairs and two bathrooms. One bedroom has a bathroom and the other bathroom is separate. The loft area has a sofa couch and one child who slept on it said it was comfortable.

Outside

The hot tub was very nice and we all enjoyed it. The deck area is large and while we didn’t use it, I imagine it would be wonderful in the summer. The fire pit was used two nights. There were a few pieces of firewood available and we used them in addition to searching the woods for wood.

Wi-Fi

The Wi-Fi was hit and miss. I didn’t bother me tremendously, but if you have a family that can’t do without it, this might not be the place. On the other hand that might be what you’re looking for in a cabin.

Other items

Graham Country is a dry county and the nearest town with availability is about 45 minutes from the cabin. Going west on HWY 143 puts you on a scenic route to Tennessee with several hiking trails and observation locations.

As I said above we had a wonderful time and I would encourage everyone to rent this Lodge. It’s a great get away and if we can work it out, we’ll be back.

Owner's Response: A fair and honest review. Don't know why the wifi was having a bad day, perhaps it was Thanksgiving holiday with lots of guests trying to use limited bandwidth. There are always trade-offs, we offer maximum remoteness and feel blessed to even offer internet service. We will continue to monitor this issue and get it resolved for future guests. This guest has already contacted us about a return visit.

A Place for Memories

  • 5 of 5

My comments are to assure you that the lodge is attractive and very spacious. What is not visible in the pics is its cleanliness especially with 3 bathrooms. You will get a good night sleep in the beds. All the rentals our family have enjoyed, we have never experienced such a bountiful and quality of amenities and pantry items as generously supplied by Ginger and Brad. The front deck is an area made for memories. Whether it be for bon appetit, tranquility of nature, or adventure beyond the lodge, you are gonna love it.

Absolutely Gorgeous!!

  • 5 of 5

This is were you want to spend your vacation in the mountains!!!

This was our third time to the area and our first time renting a vacation property and we could not be more pleased with our decision.

Brad and Ginger were fantastic hosts...they helped us with all our questions regarding the lodge, directions, the area and were always available a phone call away for any questions regarding the property during our stay.

The property was spectacular, serene, the perfect getaway if your looking for peace and quiet. It is conveniently located to all the attractions around the area and fabulous to come back to after a day of adventuring.

A paradise for dirt bikes and quads, we never made it to the end of any trail we set out on and the hot tub was nice to come back to after a day of riding to sit under the stars and relax.

The lodge is very clean and beautiful, so much custom wood detail and great furniture. All the amenities of home were provided. I was even pleased there was an electric mixer as it was my boyfriends birthday and i wanted to bake a cake.

You can rent this property with confidence...We will most certainly be back to this hidden gem in the mountains...

Relaxing family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family couldn't have asked for a better experience. The cabin was beautiful and spacious enough for our party of six. Our teenagers enjoyed the rustic look of a cabin with modern amenities. Upon our arrival we were pleased to see a roaring fire in the fireplace and sample some sweet treats that had been baked by Ginger. Our family enjoyed the perks of this non-commercialized setting. We enjoyed hiking to the creek, sitting by the fire pit, and relaxing in the hot tub .I would highly recommend staying at this property if you are looking for a quiet and simplified destination to unwind.

An all-time favorite getaway

  • 5 of 5

We watched an explosion of color in this delightful property "away from the madding crowds". Plenty of time and space to explore, and the sights and sounds served to restore an inner peace. That and much more. When you meet Brad and Ginger you know you're in good hands -- very sharing, caring people that you'll call "friends". We did take some day trips, but spent most of our 10 days right on the property. The huge outdoor room/porch was our favorite place to be, reading, writing, eating, and sometimes just listening. Though the location is remote, the facilities are far from "roughing it", and we enjoyed all of the amenities. Our next stay will be in the springtime to experience the birds and blooms. Thanks Brad and Ginger!

The perfect place for peace seekers

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this peaceful place. We found the cabin 6 years ago and stayed New Year's week. This time we decided to leave Miami for Christmas week. This place is serene and perfect. We are two families that will soon become one family when our children marry. We hiked, took many naps, read to our hearts content and had many conversations. The fire pit is my husband's favorite place and he spent most nights howling at the moon next to that fire pit. No kidding! We took day trips to parts nearby. I can not only recommend this wonderful place, but intend to visit again. Brad and Ginger are perfect hosts and Ginger can bake some awesome cookies!

This new log cabin is located about 14 miles due West of Robbinsville, NC in an unspoiled and unpopulated area with lush forests, tall mountains and fast flowing mountain streams. The setting is so special that it will probably redefine the the terms 'private and remote'. This is a no stress environment offering a scenic feast for the eyes, clean air and water and the natural background sound of a bold mountain stream cascading over large boulders. The immediate area offers trout fishing, hiking or strolling, extreme mountain biking, hunting, ATV riding and nature walks or just rest! A short drive away, you will find boating on Lakes Santeetlah and Fontana, scenic driving or motorcycling on the Cherohala Skyway and The Tail of the Dragon. Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Joyce Kilmer/Slickrock and Big Snowbird Wilderness Area. Cherokee and Harrah's Casino. Smoky Mountain Scenic Railroad. Stecoah Valley Center, whitewater rafting, fine dining and local art and craft studios

Other Activities: ride ATV (four wheelers) right from the front door for miles and miles
