Robbinsville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

This 3500 sq ft secluded cabin is ideal for your family getaway or a special retreat with that someone special.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a farmhouse table that seats six, and a pub table that seats four - that can be used as a game table as well.

Enjoy a breathtaking mountain/lake view from the deck while drinking your coffee or grilling, while the kids play.

If you are seeking hiking, biking, boating, fishing, scenic driving, nature photography, motorcycling, whitewater rafting, or vacationing, you will find a full array of natural destinations, quaint shops and the rich history of North Carolinas most remote county!

Graham County takes pride in it's rich heritage, local crafting, mountain music and dancing. Included in our heritage is the original people of the area, the Cherokee Nation which has an even older history.

Tail of the Dragon - 20 minutes from Cabin

Crossing Deals Gap at the Tennessee/North Carolina state line, the Dragon is considered by many as one of the world's best motorcycling and sports car roads. Anyone looking for an exciting highway adventure will enjoy this stretch of US 129.

Whitewater Adventures - 20 minutes from Cabin

The western North Carolina mountains offer some of the best whitewater rafting/paddling rivers on the east coast. The Nantahala River, only a 20-minute drive from our cabin, is one of the most popular. This Class I, II, and III river is the perfect place for the entire family to have a taste of this exciting sport.

Fontana Lake and Dam - 10 minutes from Cabin

This 29 mile long lake has more than 240 miles of almost totally undeveloped shoreline. More than 90 percent of the land around the lake is owned by either the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or the US Forest Service and development has been kept to a minimum.

Other activities Include:

Cherohala Skyway - 25 minutes from Cabin

Nantahala Gorge - 20 minutes from Cabin

Maggie Valley - 40 minutes from Cabin

Cherokee - 25 minutes from Cabin

Smoky Mountain National Park - 15 minutes from Cabin

About The Owner

David and I own Southern Heritage Woodworks in Sylvester, Georgia. (Google us if you would like more information on our company or products.) We manufacturer flooring and furniture out of reclaimed wood salvaged from old textile mills built prior to the 1920's. We have three boys, 25, 21, and 19.

Why The Owner chose Lake Santeetlah

We love to spend time at our cabin to relax and just get away from everyday life. We especially enjoy our time during the Fourth of July. All of our family travels up and we grill and go boat riding, tubing and wake boarding on Fontana Lake. The water is as clear as spring water and still refreshing in July and best of all is not crowded.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the seclusion of our cabin. We have the privacy and tranquility of sitting on the deck, drinking our coffee and enjoying nature.

Really Private

  • 5 of 5

Ok, first off this place was really hard to find. Our gps had us so confused that we finally had to stop and ask someone if they knew where it was. But if you want to be secluded this place is for you. The view from the deck every morning was to die for. Actually brought tears to my eyes. The house was so big and pretty. Really clean and laid out well. There are a few things that need to be replaced from being used but nothing we couldn't live with.

We used the giant fire-pit one night and that was really nice. Had hot dogs and s'mores of course, can't have a fire without those two items. All and all we really loved the place and will be back again when ever we head out to North Carolina.

Great house. Will stay again

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we loved the house. It was very clean and in wonderful condition. The view was great.

I love the area. Have traveled there and vacationed there about 25 times in the last 17 years.

The owners we very easy to work with and we only had one issue with the A/C unit and it was taken care of the next morning.

The location of the house in proximity to local attractions could not be better. We were like 30 minutes from Deals Gap, maybe like 15-20 minutes from Robbinsville. There were even a few local stores a few miles away to get basic supplies.

Loved the fact the house had several bathrooms and we never had any issues with running out of hot water.

There was plenty of room in the garage for all our bikes (like 7-8 bikes total). There was even ample room to park my truck with 25ft trailer attached. Also plenty of parking for 3-4 other cars.

The house is very remote and we didn't see anyone else the whole week we were there.

I always ride motorcycles when I'm in the area. The only complaint I would have is the driveway/road leading up to the house is very challenging on a motorcycle. It's just shy of 1 mile and portions are a 10% grade. It's gravel all the way. I thought that as the days passed, it would get easier. It never did. Been riding 29 years. Some in the group that had dirt bike experience, did not have as much of an issue. I will stay again because everything else is so amazing with the house and location. Just wish the driveway/road was not such a nail biter.

We had 10 people in our group and all were on bikes. No one enjoyed the driveway, but all said they would sign up again for next year. :-)

We will probably make a yearly trip and stay in this house again. For larger groups, this is a great deal and makes it very affordable.

The cabin on Lake Fontana is breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

I would call the cabin more of a house than a cabin. It is huge. We were a family of five. The garage is incredibly spacious. We put both of our bikes and the pickup truck in there and still had room. The view was spectacular. Enjoying coffee on the deck in the morning and watching the sun rise was awesome. In the evening we enjoyed dinner overlooking the water. We rented a boat from Almond Boat Park and explored Lake Fontana and were able to see the cabin at Mile Marker 4, around the bend. You see the loft's window.

I honestly believe, as do the kids, it was the best vacation ever. They very much enjoyed the cabin. It was the first vacation where I was not ready to go home. Every day we continue to talk about what an awesome area and time we had.

If you stay, take the drive to Cade's Cove. It is only about 8 miles from the cabin, but you would have to go through the mountains. Instead, you drive around the mountains, and it's about two hours. We saw a momma bear and two cubs in a tree. Bring a camera with a great lens. The cabin is about 30 minutes from The Tail of the Dragon, a motorcycle destination road with 318 curves in 11 miles. The many roads around the cabin were a motorcyclist's dream location.

Without a doubt, we will be back.

Home was clean with a beautiful view. If you are on a motorcycle you had better have 4 wheel drive and be very experienced at riding and maneuvering ruts holes gravel turns. But we all did it without dumping our bikes!

The owners where very quick to respond to all questions and friendly..

Home was comfortable and clean.

Enjoyed our stay!

Absolutely loved this property!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place has it all, if you like mountains, trees, trails, or water activities, this house delivers it all. We had 3 families here and everyone could not believe we could have landed such a place for a even better price. We all agreed that this will not be the last time that we set foot on this property. Our only wish was that we should have stayed longer 4 days just does not do this place justice. We grilled, hiked, swam, rented a boat, had a massive fire in the largest fire pit I have ever seen. The owners were very friendly and quick to respond. I highly recommend this place to everyone, you cant go wrong if you rent it, just get it for a longer period of time, it's well worth it! Thanks to the owners for sharing this gem with the public.
